NECA has released a steady stream of kaiju figures both from Pacific Rim and Godzilla franchises. With the Godzilla figures they started off with figures based on the new film then they shifted to more classic figures and nothing could be more classic then a Godzilla '54 figure.
As NECA has gone along with this series the figures have gotten more solid, the figures have gained weight to them and feel more sturdy. The series has had it issues particularly with the Godzilla '85 figure but NECA made changes to the figure before release a rarity in the industry. With the Godzilla '54 figure they have done an excellent job the figure it feels quite nice it's the heaviest of all so far, a good looking "strong" figure.
Detail on this figure is excellent, it looks like it was made from the suit used in the film very classic in it's design, paint on the figure is on target with a black & white color scheme that also mimics the original film.
Articulation is excellent on this figure allowing for good posing something lacking some on the '85 figure (pic below). If there is anything to find fault with I think it should be a little thinner especially the upper body.
There is very little wrong with it, other then the think/thin issue the only other issue which is very minor to is the arms, there is an indentation for the articulation of them it looks out of sorts depending on how it is posed. The only other issue is the tail, the tip that you have to attach, it is very stiff it should be bendable but really isn't so it can only be posed straight. Packaging is basically the same as previous figures nothing overly unique there.
This is one of if arguably not the best figure in the series a must buy for any die hard fan and even casual fans should get this awesome figure to add to there collection.
