Steven Reviews NECA's Godzilla 1954

Our friend Steven reviews NECA's recently released Godzilla 1954 action figure!

SHIN GOJIRA (2016) Cast Announced!

"Shin Gojira," is the official title for the 2016 film.

Thanks to Gormaru Island on Facebook, we have a look at Toho's recently announced cast for Shinji Higuchi and Hideaki Anno's "Shin Gojira," which comes out Summer 2016 in Japan.

From left to right: Hiroki Hasegawa, Yutaka Takenouchi, and Satomi Ishihara
The cast for the officially titled Shin Gojira include: Hiroki Hasegawa (Shikishima from Shinji Higuchi's Attack on Titan Parts 1 & 2) as the film's male lead, Yutaka Takenouchi as a character linked with the Japanese government, and Satomi Ishihara (Hange Zoe from Higuchi's Attack on Titan Parts 1 & 2) as the film's female lead, an agent for the United States.

According to Gormaru Island, Toho shed some light regarding the plot:

The story takes place in modern day Japan that is attacked, and the United States are involved within the chaos.

The inclusion of the United States into the story may be a way of attracting Western appeal for the film, ultimately leading it to a [limited?] theatrical release in the US much like Higuchi's live action Attack of Titan films.

I am personally really looking forward to seeing Shin Gojira as its director and cast promises it to be one of the strongest entries in the franchise. The film will utilize a hybrid method of practical and CG effects, a technique that had rarely been utilized in Japanese films. If it's anything remotely similar to Higuchi's work on Attack on Titan (2015,) then count me excited!

X-Plus Toho Large Monsters Series Manda & Mothra 1968 Set!

Holy cow!

Seemingly out of nowhere, X-Plus unveils what fans have been dying for: a Manda 1968 AND a Mothra Larva 1968 being released together in a set. This is a RIC Boy exclusive set, therefore it will NOT be available through retailers. The price for the set is 19,980 Japanese Yen, which is approximately $168 USD. It is slated for a late October or early November release.

Funko unveils Godzilla POP! Vinyl Figure

Rejoice collectors! Funko finally unveils their anticipated POP! Movies Godzilla vinyl figure at a Gamestop convention in Las Vegas. The figure is slated for a November 3rd release date (how fitting!)

Up until Funko's unveil, I was assuming that the POP! figure would be based on the 2014 design. I am quite grateful that it turned out to be the classic Toho Godzilla instead, which hopefully opens up the possibility for other characters to accompany it in the future such as Mothra, Rodan, Gigan, Jet Jaguar, MechaGodzilla, King Ghidorah and etc.


Apparently there will be three variants of the POP! Godzilla figure: a standard green colored version, a GameStop exclusive gray version, and another version with blue colored spines.

We'll update again when we have confirmation.

Upcoming Videos!

Now that I have uploaded my first review video onto our Youtube channel I plan to continue on a weekly basis (with one video per week,) hopefully, depending on what items I have yet to review or what I have coming in. So far, I have quite a bit to cover:

- X-Plus Toho Large Monsters Series Gorosaurus 1968 (RIC Boy reissue/repaint)
- X-Plus Toho 30cm Series Yuji Sakai Modeling Collection Godzilla 1991 Hokkaido Landing Ver.
- NECA Classic Godzilla Series - Godzilla 1954
- X-Plus Toho Large Monsters Series Godzilla 1995
- Sideshow Collectibles Knifehead Statue

So yeah, that's what I have planned thus far. Am I abandoning my traditional write-up reviews? Not quite just yet. I'll only write up a review if I am unable to do a video for reasons beyond my control. My intent is to gradually switch to doing my reviews exclusively on video.
