    NECA 1962 Godzilla





    So NECA is working directly with TOHO now. I may not be able to resist this figure.

    I am really hopeful we get a Toho Kong out of all this, but I doubt it. Either way, I've had this figure preordered since it was first announced. Needs it!

    The box art pretty much guarantees Kong. Otherwise, Toho wouldn't allow it.

    Pretty much a deathblow to Bandai.

    The Walmart reset has space for Bandai vinyl Kaiju from Godzilla classic movies. So not so fast on Bandai's demise with Zilla.

    Great looking figure, too bad it didn't come with a little push button that lights up his fins.

    I would think they would offer Kong too, and if sales are good, maybe more Toho monsters in the future,
    like Rodan, Mothra and King Ghidora.

    Do they really? That is surprising. I'm wondering if it's a pricepoint thing.

    Bandai's usual MO is to want stateside exclusivity.

    yep, I am guessing its to cash in on the new movie. They had pegs labeled Godzilla and Kaiju. Maybe Neca is considered a specialty market thing.

    Love it !!!!!!!!!

    '62 Godzilla costume was the last Godzilla to look scary/cool imo

    After that all Godzilla's had puppy-dog heads until '84/'85

    Speaking of this version, still waiting for Godzilla vs The Wolfman to see the light of day
