NYCC 2014: NECA Pacific Rim and Godzilla

I think combining Pacific Rim and Godzilla makes perfect sense.  Any objections to this?  Good! This was probably what I was looking forward to most from NECA this year.  After a slightly rough start I am loving the Pacific Rim […]

Prior to the convention NECA had hinted on their twitter account that they had found a way to make a previously cancelled figure work and would be showing it at NYCC.  The speculation at first was endless because NECA has […]

S.H. MonsterArts Godzilla (Rebirth) Review

I’d recently reviewed the NECA Heisei era Godzilla and loved it!  While I appreciate the amazing work NECA is doing with Godzilla at their price point, MonsterArts is still the big fish in the monster pond.  Their detailed sculpts and […]
