my big NECA 2014 came in yesterday. Man this guy is huge! 13" from toes to top of his head, and that's being hunched over a bit.

By my measurements he's 13" tall and 29" long.

awesome! Bigger than I was expecting but I'm not complaining at all, and the roar is loud. I had to re-organize things to make room for him.

Very cool, very happy to have him.

Yuck, I never knew the dorsal plates looked so…”toy-like” and rounded instead of sharp like the standard size NECA G14.
Yeah, Godzilla wins... sometimes. I mean, he was killed by Dr. Serizawa's patented bubble-bath formula, heartburn, missiles, and poor box office returns, got his ass kicked by a drunken, circus-escaped gorilla, then he was beaten by two newborn worms, yeah some “king”.

From the same suit? Most Godzilla monsters underwent significant renovations if they appeared again; Anguirus 1955 would likely have to be a completely different sculpt from 1968 or 2004, for example - as would Ghidorah 1964/1991, Hedorah 1971/2004, Mothra 1960/1992/2003, etc. They might be able to get a Gigan 1972 & 1973 from the same sculpt, but I don't know.
The thing is, I can't think of many pieces of iconography for other monsters outside their literal film appearances, the way something like Godzilla 1954 has the well-known, distinct 1956 poster image to also work with. Is there stuff out there to use? Probably, but that's why I said NECA might have to really work it out of the figures.

Okay, I can see your other examples, but I have no idea what you're thinking with this one. Can you help me out?

I love how every single time I post a pic of a new Godzilla I've gotten here the very first response is someone saying it doesn't look good.

Yes, quite fantastic :) There's something about unpainted prototypes like this that make me appreciate the figure even more, kind of like line art before it's colored in.

The NECA 62 IS awesome :lol:
But he’s not talking about G62, he’s talking about his 24 inch G14.

It’d be cool if NECA started producing uncolored variants for customization :P

I guess I'm more used to people who are happy for other peoples happiness even if they don't like something.

If my friend buys a new guitar I think is ugly I say, "congrats on your new guitar" not "that thing is an ugly piece of crap."

I posted my SHM Shin when I hadn't seen any pics online of the re-issue yet, I thought I was helping the community by getting early pics out. It got crapped on. I posted the new big Neca, it got crapped on. It's fine, people are different.

Yeah, seriously. The figure was released shortly after the standard sized one was :lol:

Dont know why you’re taking it so personally, I’m not even bashing you for for buying it, or liking it, I was simply stating that I had no clue the dorsal plates were that “toy” like, like those atomic blast and tail-strike gimmick G14 toys, I had always assumed it was a carbon copy of the standard NECA G14, which sported more movie accurate plates :shrug:

So you want us to put the thread on hold to compliment you for your toys? You're taking this way too seriously, this is a forum where people give their opinions on things. Criticizing the figure isn't even a slight against you in any way.

I'm also nearsighted, which means that I see things up close CRYSTAL-clear, which means I can point out details & differences like the guy who sculpted the item. So, forgive me if there's only a handful of folks in these forums whose opinion I put on a par with MINE...

Maybe, they’re pretty generic and don’t play a big role in the film. I could at least see Bandai doing a Pack of Destruction with them

Yes from the same suit. For Anguirus 55 they do a regular version and then a black and white variant. For Ghidorah 64 they can have the regular version and then a darker tone as if he were flying through space. Hedorah can have a regular figure and then they can do a blue color for an underwater version. They can also do dirty variants, rainbow color variants, hell, they could do a pink color Gigan for Breast Cancer Awareness for all I care.
