Classic Video Game Appearance Godzilla is the sixth figure in the line, representing Godzilla as he appeared in the 1988 Nintendo Entertainment System game Godzilla: Monster of Monsters. It was announced at Toy Fair 2015. It is partially made from the mold of the Godzilla 1984 figure, but features new dorsal plates and a light blue color scheme with some pixels painted on its body, to match Godzilla's sprite in the game. It began shipping on June 25, 2015.

  • Description: "Based on his appearance in the 1988 game for the popular 8-bit home console, Godzilla stands over 6″ tall and is nearly 12” long, with over 30 points of articulation (including bendable tail) and all new dorsal plates to match his in-game silhouette. Stylized paint deco reproduces the video game’s pixilated look. The figure comes in special window box packaging inspired by the classic video game cartridge box."

Godzilla 2001

On February 13, 2016, NECA revealed images of an unpainted prototype Godzilla 2001 figure, which was to be showcased later at Toy Fair. On March 9, 2016, Toho Kingdom posted official pictures of the finished figure on Twitter.[3][4] The figure was originally scheduled for a July 2016 release, but was pushed back to October 17, 2016.[5]

  • Description: "This version of the beloved monster is based on the 2001 movie Godzilla, Mothra, and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack, a spectacular battle between Godzilla and some of his most famous foes.

Shin Godzilla (2016)

An unpainted prototype figure of Godzilla based on his appearance in Shin Godzilla was seen alongside NECA's upcoming Godzilla and Pacific Rim figures at San Diego Comic-Con 2016. On Twitter, NECA stated that the figure was estimated for a winter release, and that a special announcement would be made in October.[6] The painted figure was finally revealed on October 12, at a Shin Godzilla screening at the Alamo Drafthouse in Yonkers. The figure is currently targeted for a May 2017 release.[7]

  • Description: "From Shin Godzilla, the blockbuster 2016 movie that returned the classic Godzilla franchise to its roots! The most famous kaiju in the world measures 6″ tall and 12” long from head to tail. It features incredible detail and over 30 points of articulation, including an articulated tail!"[7]

Godzilla 2001 Atomic Blast

This retool of the Godzilla 2001 figure was unveiled at the 2017 New York Toy Fair alongside the Godzilla 2016 figure. The figure comes with a new atomic breath piece and an added bluish tint for the dorsal plates and front of the body. It will be released in the third quarter of 2017. The price is not yet known.

Reactor Glow Godzilla

The Reactor Glow Godzilla is a repaint of NECA's Burning Godzilla figure. Although the image on the back of the box shows a Burning Godzilla figure with all of the orange on its body recolored green, the actual figure features non-translucent, glow-in-the-dark green blotches instead. It was available exclusively through a March 2017 Loot Crate DX subscription.

Unannounced Figures

NECA confirmed via Twitter that they have three more Godzilla figures awaiting release that have yet to be revealed. NECA also confirmed on Twitter that they have created a prototype Godzilla 2014 figure featuring translucent blue dorsal plates, but Toho has not yet approved it.[8] On January 14, 2016, NECA confirmed via their Twitter page that a new Godzilla figure would be revealed at Toy Fair 2016 in February.[9] They also revealed that they hoped to release at least three new Godzilla figures in 2016, and maybe more if there was enough time and Toho approved them.[10] On January 19, NECA confirmed that the upcoming figure to be revealed at Toy Fair would not be based on a Godzilla design from the 1960's.[11] The figure to be revealed at Toy Fair was later shown to be Godzilla 2001. On May 7, NECA reiterated via Twitter that more Godzilla figures in the line would be coming after Godzilla 2001.[12] The first two figures announced after Godzilla 2001 were Shin Godzilla and the Atomic Blast Godzilla 2001 repaint.

Scrapped Figures

According to the official NECA Twitter page, figures for Ghost Godzilla, the Marvel Godzilla, and the Hanna-Barbera Godzilla were considered and suggested to Toho, who refused the ideas.[13][14]

Does anyone else find it odd that NECA uses the Bandai Creation Godzilla 1954 on their box art?

The Japanese "Movie Monster King" series or whatever also has it, though at least with that one it's also Bandai.

Toho didn't approved of the atomic breath version of Godzilla 2014 but they did approve of the atomic breath version of the GMK Godzilla.

I recently got NECA's GMK Godzilla, and it's an amazingly detailed and accurate figure, much better than the Bandai Creation Godzilla 2001 figure I have. It's probably not quite as accurate as the S.H. MonsterArts figure, but for the price it's pretty impressive. In my opinion it's NECA's best figure since Godzilla 2014.

NECA posted something on Twitter saying that for some reason the proportions of ShinGoji's head in the pictures of it taken at NYCC are distorted, and the real proportion of the head will look more like that seen on the unpainted prototype.
