The Neca figure is more or less how she looks in the film minus the fuzz. She's able to change her wing color so in some shots shes bluish green.

The obvious answer is yes even if you haven't seen the film. That's a huge failing of this design. Head/snout much too small and short.

Was talking with someone who's seen the film (gave it 8/10) and I asked about the post credit scene and he felt it was a huge letdown and the actual credits and what's shown is far more fun. Is this accurate?

Really surprised they would flub the post credit scene when the one after Kong Skull Island was thrilling and set up the next film perfectly.

The post credits scene is wasn't all spectacular but set's up the human conspiracy in Godzilla vs Kong

I wouldn't call it a letdown, but the scene isn't really clear as to what's being hinted at. I suspect it may not even tie into GvK, it's that vague with the meaning. Although, I will say, I thought it was pretty cool by itself - you'll recognize exactly the scene they're visually referencing, which could suggest a couple of things.

For those of you who haven't answered this. What are your Rotten Tomatoes predictions, so far estimates from people who have seen it say 75-85

Oh well. Guess I won't see the movie for myself and form my own opinion, I've basically already seen it in my mind from what I've read online and I know a lame duck when I see one. Time to whip out the 'ol 12 gauge

Has anyone seen it in Imax 3d? I wonder if it's awesome like in G14, this movie feels like it's made for 3d.

I'm very interested in seeing how critics and the GA react to this. The audience I was with last night seemed to love it, but you never know.

If I had to predict an RT score, I'd say about 75% to 82%, somewhere in that range. I don't see critics bashing it, but I don't see universal love for it either. But hey, Krampus only got like a 66% or so and I loved that, so Dougherty and I are on the same wavelength apparently, lol.

If you're a monster fan, this movie is a solid A+ thrill ride.

I guess everybody thinks the same cause 75 to 85 is my guess too.

Critics reaction will likely be mixed leaning towards positive but I'm expecting a few to hate it

Im excited for the first critic review that really pans it and says its bad. The following will happen:

- several people here will say "See! It does suck!" We know who these people are
- several people on the edge will go into panic mode. We know who these people are
- there are pragmatic people who will say hey its one review relax!

Just watch

Add the crowd that just sits chilling and eating popcorn while the chaos unfolds, then it'd be 100% accurate lol.

Given how some people are acting even with overwhelmingly positive first reactions this is incredibly accurate

I am probably in the pragmatic camp if I decide to comment. Does that make me part of the problem lol I mean if all the reviews were negative I would be more concerned but the occasional one is not an issue. People are allowed to have differing opinions.

I'm expecting negative reviews because Critics wouldn't have a job if there weren't any.

All films have negative reviewers.

I expect a few negative review swith some issues like pacing and story but mostly mixed depends on how much you're expecting from a monster film
