Pacific Rim Ultra Deluxe Otachi Figure 1

During our coverage of NECA’s SDCC 2014 Booth, they wowed us with the first look at their massive Pacific Rim Ultra Deluxe Otachi Figure. The surprising reveal showcased a huge figure that’s in scale with their Pacific Rim 7″ Figures. According to NECA, the figure measures about 18″ in length. It will feature over 30 points of articulation, a removable tongue and an acid spitting effect. Otachi will be limited to a single production run, with a release in January 2015.

NECA 1994 Godzilla 053

NECA continues their line of 12″ head-to-tail Godzilla figures with a version of Godzilla based on the 1994 film Godzilla vs Space Godzilla. In the film, Godzilla must face Mogera, a UN created machine as well as a space version of himself. Though not typically considered one of the top Godzilla films, the movie featured a striking design for Godzilla and was one of the last films released prior to the reboot in 1999 (after the disastrous original North American version). Also available in this scale is their previously released Godzilla 2014, as well as their upcoming Godzilla 1985 figure. This figure features over 30 points of articulation and stands at 6″ tall.

We’re pleased to present a full gallery of the figure. We have over 50 photos. Read on to see the pics as well as my thoughts on the 1994 Godzilla figure.
