Big yikes... Playmates Toys managed to secure the rights to produce action figures based on Adam Wingard's upcoming Godzilla vs. Kong (2021) movie and this week, images of the Godzilla and Kong figures were leaked online, giving us our first look at what these action figures will look like when they hit shelves. Although the official marketing material for the figures looked okay... one fan managed to secure themselves one of the Giant Kong figures and suffice to say, the actual product seems to differ significantly from what the initial images advertised...

Fans are not impressed...

Sadly, we also received news this week that NECA will not be producing any more Godzilla figures, which seems even more devastating following the revelation of this article.

We're still holding out on S.H. MonsterArts to save the day with some legitimately impressive figures for Godzilla vs. Kong because at this rate, it's not looking like the Playmates alternatives will not be that sought after by fans and collectors.

The pic on the left is a studio shot and obviously has some photo-shopping done.  As for the the pic on the right, anything photographed close up with a flash will lose definition.  But again - it's a toy.  It's not really meant to be a collectable.  If I get ahold of one, I'll draw my own conclusions.

See, I hate it when fans trash on a Playmates Godzilla or Kong action figure. Guys, its a TOY. This is not a collectable like a s.h. monsterarts figure, so don't hold a cheaper made toy up to the standards of an a-grade meticulously designed collectors item. Sheesh.

This is exactly what happened with Jurassic World (except worse) the company gave the lead toy rights to a trashy cheap company. Hasbro got the rights and made hideous embarrassments of toys that had nothing against the Kenner Jurassic Park figures and now NECA (who made amazing low priced Goji figs) lost the rights and now this bull company gets to take the lead. Let’s all look to the bright future S.H Monsterarts is hopefully holding for us


TitanosaurusMember616 XPJul-19-2020 2:11 PM

I honestly don't care about the toys themselves. All I'm concerned about is what they tell us about the film.

Still keeping my fingers crossed for S.H. MonsterArts figures.
