NECA Toys continues their popular Godzilla: King of the Monsters figure line-up with the latest edition to the line, Mothra, and the figure is inspired on how he is pictured on the movie poster. This figure includes new paint deco, articulated wings, a reissue of the stand and base that he previously came with in the first release.
Thank you to NECA Toys for providing their Godzilla: King of the Monsters – 12″ Wing-To-Wing Figure – Mothra “Poster Version” for review.
Availability: April 2020
Mothra is packaged in a window box with an opening flap, with nicely done movie artwork on the front, artwork on the sides, an images of the figure on the back. The opening flap has a nice action shot of Mothra, and he can be seen to the right and nicely protected in a plastic tray for safe keeping.
Mothra is given updated deco that is inspired from the films movie poster and features articulated wings that swivel up and down. His wingspan is roughly between 11″-12″ long depending on the placement of the wings, and he has two long wings, and two smaller wings underneath them. The wings are nicely detailed and painted in several shades of blue and have a nice texture to it, in addition to sculpted black lines and various other details. The wings are made of a soft plastic, and the hinged joints are strong enough to hold them in the position you choose. Mothra also has long hinged stingers in the front, and bendy smaller stingers in the front as well, and long legs in the back that are also bendy. His body is nicely detailed body with a great head sculpt and stinger in the back.
The acrylic stand clips onto his torso and holds him pretty securely to allow him to be posed, and the wings can rest on pieces on either side to showcase him in flight. The stand is plugged into a base below that is also reissued from his first release, including the egg that he hatched from that has some excellent sculpting and detail, and a building that houses the egg.
While it’s not shown, Mothra can be placed inside the egg with the wings spread out, so the support rod isn’t always required to pose him just as long as he rests or leans on something. His legs don’t give him the option to be posed without the rod or base.
Overall, Mothra is an excellent figure and NECA has truly done an amazing job on him. If you’ve been collecting the Godzilla line, make sure to pick him up now as you don’t want to miss out! The figure is currently available, and can be found at one of the stores listed below:
