Why does Godzilla get armor but not Kong :(
He should get like blue armor or something. Or a big shield and helmet!

He'll then look like an extra from Planet of the Apes.

The interesting thing is based on the film, I can't even think of a context for that red armor.

Perhaps in the original movie Godzilla got hurt so bad he started dying after powering up Kong's axe and then kong did a cast or something with mecha godzilla's body to heal up Godzilla to full recovery?

Can I just say again how much I appreciate the playmates? As in just got the MEGA toys because they looked awesome, and man they are very cool toys. Im thinking of doing a custom on the mega godzilla with a broken neca tail, maybe i can widen the hole and fit it in to make it have an articulated longer tail. But yeah for the price these are awesome.

Edit:

I did it xD

And im thinking of actually doing it, is not solid inside of it. I took the tail of my broken neca godzilla (it was just sitting in the closet while the good one is up and front), cut a good bit of it to make it similar to the tail joint on the playmate and tada. I know i know, g21 has round tip at the tail, but that is easy to customize, I'll add some flex glue to keep it truly in place, then re paint the whole tail to match.

I did it! I finally scored closed-mouth Kong, Hong Kong-Godzilla & Kong and MechaGodzilla! I’m not exactly sure how long the end cap display was there but it couldn’t have been more than a day or two — it was almost completely wiped and the 6” MG figure I swooped on was literally thee last one there.

No ‘mega’ figures to be found.


Now I’m looking at all these figures and thinking they could use a custom paint...

That tail actually looks pretty decent on the figure. The tail on that Mega Godzilla looked pretty short and odd, so nice work putting a longer one on. :D

Thanks, I removed the last segment and put some green stuff in the tip, also sculpted the inside of the hole a hole bit wider sanded the sculpt a bit more so that it was rounder and sat better in the tail joint, though I'll definitelly will need to glue it for it to stay on. But with this tail it really feels like a more complete figure you know?

I think I will get a wide brush and practice for a while some dry brushing before going at it, had some experience before so I might do an ok job. Thinking of painting around the dorsal plates with a matching blue and a bit of white to add glow to his back, maybe around the eyes too a tat bit. I don't want to go crazy on it, just trying to make the blue in the plates fit better.

Edit: after some more cutting and a hair drier i actually manage to get it to hold tight onto the tail, might not need that glue after all.

Last picture, promise. So as I said I manage to make the hole in a way that holds to the peg like it regularly would. Then I painted the spines solid and then over with a wide brush doing some dry brushing, I think I did good, woke up this morning and for moment it looked like a giant neca to me xD

As a proud owner of the awesome 24" HTT NECA, it hurts just reading about one having a severed tail. But you did a nice job marrying it to that Playmates figure!

Oh it actually broke in the joint, took a dive of a tall shelf by accident and that tail peg snapped. So at the time I got another one since the roar box wasn't working either, and this guy sitting on the closet forever thinking if to customize it with the spines of the new one, fuse the tail with glue maybe? But hey now I gave it an use and I still got the one that actually makes sound. So now i got two godzillas on similar size with sound effects.

My 24” NECA G’s sound gave out just this year. Really bummed me out. I even tried to fix it but just made it worse really.

That said, the figure of course is still awesome.
