So many people have been down on the design of Godzilla in the new Toho Pictures movie 'Godzilla Resurgence,' and absolutely no one has even seen the film yet. Personally, I've been incredibly excited about seeing why Godzilla looks this way; whether it's a literal call-back to his origin as a radioactive giant dinosaur, or just an eccentric take on the icon, I don't care. I'm just excited to see him come alive in a modern Japanese film. That said, having him come alive in my living room would be almost just as awesome, and S.H. MonsterArts is wasting no time in making that a reality. Check out some info on the figure, a promotional video, and a ton of pictures after the jump.
X-Plus has been showing off a basic maquette for awhile now, but today they've finally revealed their "Large Monster Series Legion" vinyl figure. This is based off the design in the incredibly important Heisei Gamera trilogy (specifically Gamera 2: Attack of Legion), and is the largest and most detailed figure of the monster to date. There are two different versions coming out towards the end of the summer, and where you buy it from will determine if yours will have added lighting and effects, according to the guys over at Kaiju Addicts. See the specs and a collection of pictures below.
The first release in the all new S.H.MonsterArts KOU KYOU KYOKU series. It's an all new approach to action figures, with superb posability, light (KOU), sound (KYOU), and music (KYOKU)! LEDs illuminate Godzilla's mouth and fins. And a sound chip replicates three different roars, his radioactive breath, and the sound of his thundering footsteps. And that's not all. It also includes two music selections: "Godzilla's Theme," and "Godzilla vs. the Tanks." Check out more pictures and a video released by S.H.MonsterArts after the jump.
According to our friends over at Gormaru Island, this beautifully sculpted Shin-Gojira figure is the A-Rank prize in a lottery being held to promote 'Godzilla Resurgence' in Japan. Only fifty of these figures will be distributed as prizes, with no word yet on any plans to distribute it through retail. Can't imagine they'd go through the trouble of making something so detailed without planning to release it normally down the road, but we'll keep a look out. Check out more photos after the jump.
August Ragone has dropped a bombshell of news concerning a certain giant Megazord and a new series of toys being released in Japan. Check out the details (quoted from his blog) and more pictures after the jump.
