More MonsterArts! Godzilla 1989 with Lights and Sounds Coming this November!

Hot on the heels of the reveal of S.H.MonsterArts’ odd but awesome new “Eva-Goji” repaint, Tamashii Nations have revealed YET ANOTHER new addition to the revived line of super articulated monster figures! And this is one that is bound to excite EVERY Godzilla collector…

Back in 2013, when Tamashii released the now highly sought after S.H.MonsterArts Biollante, they originally intended to sell it with a Godzilla 1989, A.K.A. the fan-favorite “Biogoji” design that took on the plant monster in 1989’s aptly titled Godzilla vs Biollante. However, nervous about how the Biollante figure, which featured a light gimmick in the chest to replicate the monster’s strange glow, would sell, they held off on releasing Godzilla, and for years, all that us fans had as proof that such a figure even existed was an image of a non-articulated prototype seen at a toy expo in Japan.

However, a few days ago, an image of an articulated prototype found its way online. The image comes from an upcoming Japanese book that details the sculptural work and behind-the-scenes details of sculptor Yuki Sakai’s work on the S.H.MonsterArts series, including unproduced prototypes. Although fans resigned themselves to the fact that the image represented a figure that, in all likelihood, had been abandoned by the company, this was far from the case. Today, Tamashii have revealed that Godzilla 1989 has not been abandoned, and that the long dormant figure will finally see the light of day when it hits Japanese store shelves this Fall!

However, the reveal also comes with an extra surprise… not only will the figure feature the previously confirmed light up spines, but also a sound effect option, including Godzilla’s iconic roar and one or more musical cues from the Godzilla series! This is undoubtedly what Tamashii meant, in an interview conducted last year about the future of the line, when they indicated that they wished to take the S.H.MonsterArts series in a more “premium direction”. It doesn’t get much more premium than an 8 inch height, light up spines, sound effects… and a $199.99 price tag.

Check out the figure, and its LED spines, here:

For more info, images, and a sound demo, head over to the figure’s official webpage.

At the aforementioned price of (gulp!) $199.99 USD, S.H.MonsterArts Premium Godzilla 1989 releases in Japan this October, and here in the US in November via Bluefin.

So, what do you think? Is this the Godzilla 1989 figure of your dreams? What do you think of the lights and sounds gimmick? Will be you forking over the dough for this bad boy? Let us know, and be sure to keep it locked to Scified for any and all breaking Godzilla news!
