PiercingMetal Thoughts: I have to admit that I am pretty close to being a lifelong fan of Godzilla and have watched countless movies and owned numerous toys that bore his likeness over the years. The film “Godzilla: King Of The Monsters” was an enjoyable film IMHO and I look forward to its continuation of this franchise since it’s a lot of fun seeing these massive Kaiju level anything that is in their path. It also brings us lots of awesome toys and if you’ve followed us here for any duration you know we saw a lot of coolness at the annual Toy Fair. That being said, I need one of these and have to figure out how to get one since I will not be attending this convention. I’ve gone to the NY Comic Con for years but never have been able to take the trip to San Diego for this event. What do you collectors think about this one? Are you plotting and planning on how to get one for yourself? Chime in down in the comments and I will see you again soon.
