Retro Godzilla hops out of 1985 to dive under the Christmas tree

After only being available for preorder, the menacing NECA Godzilla from the 1985 film The Return of Godzilla is finally in-stock! What’s special about this guy is the versatility of his size. He stands six inches tall, making him perfect for true-to-scale display alongside your other collectibles, but he boasts a head-to-tail measurement of over 12 inches long!

His tail is also bendable, comprising a few of the 30 total articulation points. If you’re a real Godzilla-head, you need to cop this guy right away.

He looks like he might be fun to chat with at a cocktail party.

Classic Japanese Godzilla from the 1985 film is about to crash into December

In honor of the film that slayed the box office earlier this year, NECA is fĂȘting one of the classic Godzilla incarnations from the decades of yore. The 1985 Japanese sci-fi film originally titled The Return of Godzilla is the inspiration for this six-inches-tall, 12-inches-long monster. His tail is bendable and the whole figurine includes a radical 30 points of articulation, perfect for posing and acting out the fiery ruination that made the action films so epic. Grab him now in time for the holidays, as he will be delivered in December.

In 1985, The Return of Godzilla won the Japan Academy Award for Special Effects. Makes sense -- how else are you going to make a giant lizard-monster destroy an island city?
