Here’s some answers randy posted about the B/W and color versions

It's a bit cheeky to start with the b&w Monster if that's the variant.
I ordered it, but I don't want to collect both. So now I'll have to see if I can cancel as colour is the main line that everyone will get a release in.

Hey, anybody else get their arrival notice for Quint? BBTS emailed me yesterday and I hadn't heard they were out yet.

I noticed Quint and the Puppets were up on their eBay store, guess that's all finally hitting.

Better late than never. Quint seems useless to me without the rest of the gang. Are they still making the shark? Haven't heard much about that in ages.

Happy to see the Puppets are finally here although BBTS only says one is processing for me... Which is... Odd.

Last I heard, the shark was still being worked on. I think it ran into similar problems as the Child's Play dolls and it was costing out higher than they wanted so they were reevaluating some things with it. It's another one of those items where they don't want to show it too early because it could change a lot before it's ready for production.

It would be nice if Neca felt the same way about the Gargoyles line.
They do, they got seven completed Gargoyles with an unclear release schedule too.

He was on an endcap further into the electronics section and not in the usual NECA spot when I found him. Worth looking around elsewhere.

So I have an interesting story.

My friend's 10-year old son has developed an interest in Godzilla. He knows all about NECA's offering and is thoroughly captivated by them. He doesn't have one of his own, so I looked online for something from KOTM. Almost everything I saw was bootleg. However, I did find a local seller who had an unopened KOTM Burning Godzilla. Located close by my friend to boot. I arranged to pick up the figure, got it, and gave it to my friend's son. First thing he shouted upon opening it was "It has a FULLY ARTICULATED TAIL!". He knew which version it was and was thoroughly overjoyed.

That is, until we discovered that the ball joint was missing to connect the tail. I'm not sure how that happened, but I promised him I'd make it right. I contacted NECA a few days ago, but haven't heard back. Going to give it another week or so until I try to reach out again. I know they don't make Godzilla product anymore and that complicates things.

If they aren't able to send a replacement ball joint for the tail, does anybody know where I could get one? Would anyone know a site to get a 3D print of a comparable ball joint?

Local comic shop only had the Tunneler and Pinhead set. I'm betting they ship separately.

I was talking about the part where Neca said we need to get more out.

I got Homelander today... the face isnt perfect but it will do for now... its very Zach Morris-ish... def doesnt hold a candle to the MAFEX face sculpt. Iwish he had a smiling face or an angry open mouth
