Yeah, and the fact that the neck amd hands are jointed makes the unusually small head and bigass palms stand out even more lol.
Which is a shame, because the rest of the body looks pretty decent and accurate (feet, spines etc). What is it with S.H failing to capture the Legendary design correctly lmao.


SHMA's articulation style causes proportions to be off in their figures, this stands out with some designs more than others. Their '64 suffers from it, even the 2003 a bit.

Yeah, noticed that too. Shin and 62 also have this problem. Seems that Legendary Ghidorah has the same issue to some extent, with the head-to-body ratio clearly being different to what was shown so far from the movie. It's a shame really.

Personally, I think NECA's articuation style is best, regardless of comparing sculpts or anything, they give enough articulation to be more of an action figure than an MMS Vinyl, but limit it enough they don't lose aesthetics because of proportions you have to change for the layers of articulation.

I'm saying. If I saw that in a store as a kid, I would have lost my mind. I think people forget who these are marketed towards.

Godzilla looks fine, Ghidorah is a valiant effort but it just doesn't look good. The hands for the others heads makes sense but why are the wings so damn small and the neck is so thick? Like it looks like this was clearly the first time the costume makers tackled a Ghidorah costume and again they gave it their best but it just falls short to me. Even as a kid I think I wouldn't of liked it. Most of the other stuff is looking good though, the only other one that just fails is Mothra's mask. Which they gave fangs for god knows why and the insect eyes just look like coloring to the sides. Again, clearly the first attempt at a bug mask, boy does it show. Rodan's is spot on though and the others aren't bad either.

As frightening as those costumes do look I think its awesome that they exist and I know that if I was six or so I'd have lost my mind over getting them.

Indeed, that's why I was trying to go with the slant with some of the crappier ones that this is the first time a Godzilla film has been mainstream enough to GET this treatment. Like how there was merch for Ant-Man and Vision for the recent MCU stuff at the time. Before those respective films came out I doubt any comic fan would of expected mainstream costumes of those characters. It just shows the growing pains with these early attempts, and where I hope we see refinement later on at some point.

Oh, OHH, imagine the sweet merch for Godzilla vs Kong. OOHHHH!!!!! That's gonna be great.

On a more positive note, JAKKS 30 CM Godzilla is looking great.
