This 14-inch Shin Godzilla Second Form soft vinyl figure is the kind of thing we need more of - they're cheap to make, sizable, and good enough. Not everything needs to be $200 with 90 points of articulation - sometimes you just need a figure for your desk.
This weird fellow is mostly tail. The body has 2 articulated legs, with the back spines and the tail as separate-but-glued pieces. The articulation is kind of pointless, but it's handy if you want to raise or lower it a tiny but. The figure's weird blank dumb eyes and gaping maw hint at its struggles to breathe as it evolves lungs - you can see the gills. The figure looks desperate, scared, and probably oblivious to where it is.
This is a figure you buy because you like the design - sure, it has painted gills. Yes, it has a painted mouth with teeth. The whites aren't super white, and the spines don't look all that different from the main skin. The soft vinyl looks like it could be real, but obviously isn't. The face reeks of the design sensibility of Attack on Titan, which makes sense given the creative team. The tail has hints of what the movie brings you at the end, but let's not go into that - let's just admire someone had the bravery to try Godzilla as something neither green nor black.
If you like how this figure looks, it's good enough to buy. See the movie first, and then snag this figure if it's still available in your price range. It won't amaze you, but it's a satisfyingly strange take on a classic movie monster.
