The 98 film might be partially to blame. Sony held off on stores carrying merchandise until the opening weekend as to not spoil the new design. This caused stores to be stuffed with unwanted stuff because everyone hated the movie. It effectively tainted the Godzilla name for retailers.


And they didn't understand the difference between classic Goji and 98 Goji, so no store would carry Godzilla and the Lost Continent. The 5th novel in the Random House series was canceled.

I am still confused about how there is NOTHING for the new Titans. NECA keeps claiming there's not enough interest, but you look at all of the variants and accessories they produce for their other lines and it makes no sense. Although it could be argued that those variants are cheaper to produce because many of them share the same basic sculpts. It could be that NECA wanted the Godzilla license, just to have the Godzilla license. But then the Jakks line is limited to the four, and all of the apparel and general merchandise are limited to the four. It feels like a huge missed opportunity, not to engage consumers and show the wide breadth of characters available in the larger franchise.

That's pretty much the reasoning. NECA won't do something if it can't be frankenstein'd into something else to sell later on. Just look at the incomplete Pacific Rim line, they milked the Gipsy Danger, Knifehead, and Mutavore molds dry all while leaving out three film kaiju (two of which are fairly important).

Yeh, how many variations of GD were there? I will say they did make a few Jaeger's that weren't in the film, so I give them credit for that.

NECA's selling model is why we get things like Atomic Shin, Atomic 2019, Atomic GMK, NES Godzilla and Poster '54. You can't really re-use parts from Godzilla for other suits, so instead they find ways to use their existing figures to get multiple releases and increased profit from one piece of work so they can manage to keep releasing unique figures.

Having seen the high resolution image of Behemoth now, they definitely could find some way to use parts from a Kong to make that one too and get use out of a majority of similar parts, their fur styles are too different. Originally I thought this might be an option since the posture of Behemoth looks similar to an ape on all 4s.

They're a smaller figure company that does Bandai vinyl style figures of monsters that Bandai ignores like Manda, Ebirah, etc.

Y-MSF figures are gorgeous, especially in hand. This is a good move, and if you're a fan of Behemoth, you should be excited.

I am a fan, I just hate vinyl and am sick of this trend of kaiju only getting vinyl representations. Even more so when the heroes of the story get articulated representations like uprising and gridman. Feels like a huge middle finger and a waste of potential
