The first vinyl figure of “ShinGoji” has been revealed. According to Astounding Beyond Belief and August Ragone, the 35cm figure will be available this July via $5.70 (USD) lottery ticket. It will likely hit retail markets at a later date. Released by Banpresto, Yuji Sakai is responsible for the sculpt. (Sakai is best known for the initial concept maquette of Godzilla 2000 or the “MireGoji.”) The image reveals even more of Godzilla's new design including theropod-esque feet which were teased when the movie was announced.
In addition to the reveal is a magazine scan teasing a Movie Monster Series Godzilla 2016 as well as “Godzilla 2016 Kaiju A” and “Godzilla 2016 Kaiju B.”
At present it is still believed that Godzilla Resurgence will be a solo outing for the King of the Monsters. Playing it safe with the speculation, it's probably best to assume Kaiju A and B are some sort of new releases of prior kaiju in the franchise. Or alternate Godzilla figures? (Which would no doubt,add fuel to those multiple form rumors.) Throwing caution to the wind? Maybe there are more monsters in Godzilla Resurgence than we think. Either way we'll be seeing three new figures in the line-up this summer.
