NECA Revamping 1985 Godzilla Head
August 1, 2014

Just before comic con NECA showed off a few of their upcoming “classic” version of the king of the monsters.  The head of the 1985 version of Godzilla was met with a mixed reaction from some fans.   Not satisfied with that reaction and with a deep rooted desire to give fans what they want, the gang at NECA went back to the drawing board and revamped the head.   Randy revealed the new sculpt on the NECA Twitter account today:

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.

    YES! Neca really surprised me with this move and because if it I pre-ordered two of this guy. G84 has always been my favorite but that original head sculpt kept me from pulling the trigger when I first saw it.

    nice Neca really cares about their fans when it comes to Godzilla i give the design team props for willing to go back and redesign the head which surely not only cost some extra funds of the budget for that old head looked a little too cheesy

  • Gojifan says:

    Great move on NECA’s part. Very much pleased with this resculpt as the first was so horribly out of proportion. There are still issues with the figure, but they are minor. Really looking forward to this one once more. Thank you, NECA.
