Let's Talk: Stop Bothering NECA On Twitter
All of us have expressed our disappointment over NECA not making a King Ghidorah action figure. It is okay to express disappointment, but now it is getting to the point where it is getting out of hand. This is NOT okay by any means no matter what your excuse is.
NECA gave their explanation whether you agree with them or not. They heard your voice and now it's time to move on. You don't sit there complaining and begging to them on Twitter. That is very childish behavior. We should be more grateful to NECA that we are even getting any types of action figures from Godzilla: King Of The Monsters at all. Are Mothra, Rodan, and two Godzilla 2019 figures not enough? Is that $160 price tag really that big of a difference over the $180 price tag from the S.H. MonsterArts version? To me, that is not much of a big difference. A big difference to me would be if the price ranged around $80 - $100.
I get why you're disappointed. You wanted the full cast at a cheaper price and we didn't get all of them. I even expressed my disappointment as well. However, rather than getting upset at NECA for not making a King Ghidorah figure how about showing support for NECA instead. If Mothra, Rodan, and the two Godzilla figures sell well, then NECA might reconsider doing a King Ghidorah figure. They did say if anything changes that they would let us know about it. Yet, that is a BIG "if" and crying to NECA about it is not going to resolve anything.
I do have a message for NECA as well. Every fandom has those bad apples. It's unavoidable. However, not everyone that brought up King Ghidorah are complaining. I have seen one post that was simply making a suggestion and he got berated on it. In fact, the most I have seen are people that were very accepting over what was revealed. You expressed that no one interacts with the fan base or customer at the level like you do and the fans appreciate that. From what I have seen, most people understand that King Ghidorah couldn't be done and are just hoping that eventually one would get made. You did say in the interview back in San Diego Comic Con 2018 that you are working closely with TOHO and that you have the freedom to make other monsters other than Godzilla. Even though you never said that you were doing King Ghidorah this lead many to assume that you were going to do one. So I think there should have been clearer communication between you and the fans on what you're working on instead of answering with riddles. It is a very popular monster in the Godzilla series and disappointment was expected. So there are two things that I ask of NECA to start doing. The first one is to be more clear with what people should expect and the other is to not take everything personal.
That is all I wanted to say. I just felt that this needed to be brought to everyone's attention. If you have any thoughts on the matter make sure to leave a comment in the comment section. Follow me on my Facebook page and Twitter to stay up to date for more news, reviews, and discussions.
