The thing with Spitfire is that is what we should have gotten in the first place. Or at the very least the original G14 with the beam effect and MUTO head.
I will explain slowly why you are wrong.

Eh, I like that we have a Godzilla with lit spines. Though I think they could be a modicrum LESS lit. In the movie, only a portion of each spine lit up. Not the whole row, much less a strip of the flesh surrounding them.

Laugh at me, but I just bought Rebirth Junior. Been holding the trigger for a long time coming but I couldn't hold back for the deal I got him for. Looking forward to finally holding one actually in hand and not behind a box at Barnes and Noble.

Why would I laugh? Second or third best figure in the line, IMO, after Kiryu Heavyarms and *debatably* hunchzilla.

Speaking of Hunchzilla-- I found a way to make him look much more like the actual film-suit by removing one of the segments of his neck. It ends up being slightly too thick from the frontl but he no longer looks like Special Needs Zilla, or is stuck looking at the floor, so I lable it a major improvement.

Haven't posted in a bit, and the Monsterarts news scene has been slow lately, I decided to grab a couple of figures, and do some experimenting with a photo shoot. I pulled a couple of favorites from my display.

Well it's obvious the blue spines were exaggerated on the figure and not movie accurate.

It'd have cost 120+$, if all those tiny blue cracks would have had to be hand-painted around on each spike, that's why it was made the way it is. I still love the figure. The best variant out of the tree by a good margin.

Tho true, I thought tamashii admitted that many of the ppls who purchase SHMA are foreigners. Now that they ran outfa heisei monsters, It be nice if they do shows stuff to make that gaijin money

Wouldn't making the smaller showa figures alongside the regular price point and doing them bare bones have increased profit for Tamashii?
You can put it on my Tombstone Mothra vs Godzilla> Gojira

The Revoltech Gigan was pretty darn good. Just a bit small.

Probably but you know what's even cheaper? Repaints.

Yeah, who else is excited for the new Glitter covered Godzilla (Godzilla vs. Mothra battle repaint)
Or the battle damage MOGUERA missing an arm, and partially burnt up!

First one would be basically the SHMA version of the Forever Series Resurrection Godzilla and both would be perfect Web Exclusives. I'd actually buy those.

Hahaha! I'm laughing you freaking loser. Why did it take you so long to get him. I have literally told you multiple times he is worth it.

Regardless I hope you like him, hope he doesn't have any defects like mine does
