In 2001, Toho released Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack. The film, a direct sequel to the original 1954 Godzilla film, ignored all previous sequels and reboots. In the film, Godzilla returns after an over 50 year absence to destroy Japan. As he sets his path of destruction, he must battle other monsters such as Baragon, Ghidora, and Mothra. Unlike other films through the years, in the Giant Monsters All-Out Attack film Godzilla is portrayed as an outright destructive and sinister monster. The design was updated to give him a more menacing look.
Last year, NECA released a Godzilla figure based on Giant Monsters All-Out Attack. Now NECA has re-released the figure with an all-new paint scheme and with an Atomic Blast effects piece, the first time their figures have included this. They have sent along the figure for us to check out. You can read on for my thoughts and a full gallery of the Atomic Blast Godzilla 2001 Figure.
