It has certainly been a busy month for Bandai/Tamashii Nations S.H.MonsterArts line! Just a few weeks ago, the company revealed that an exclusive, limited edition “EVA-Goji” (a Godzilla sporting the colors of Neon Genesis Evangelion’s EVA Unit 01) would release in the Fall, and that a new subline of the series, S.H.MonsterArts Shine Sound Songs (SSS) would see its first release, Godzilla 1989, in November. On top of all of this MonsterArts Madness, today we have YET ANOTHER new release to talk about…
At a toy expo in Japan that opened today, crew members from the upcoming Godzilla: Resurgence (including co-director and special effects director Shinji Higuchi) were on hand to reveal S.H.MonsterArts’ newest figure… Shingoji himself, in all of his horrifying glory!
Few official images have been released for the figure yet (expect this post to be updated soon with more images), but plenty is known about this beast of a figure. Images taken of Shin Godzilla next to the 8 inch tall SSS Godzilla 1989 confirm that this toy will be huge, over 8 inches tall and sporting a film accurate long tail. It has also been confirmed that the figure will be a General Release, not a Web Exclusive, and will retail for $130.00. No mention has been made thus far regarding bonus parts. In adition, Shin Godzilla was not sculpted by SHMA veteran Yuji Sakai, but was instead created by Takayuki Takeya, who sculpted the original maquette for the film.
S.H.MonsterArts Godzilla 2016 is expected to release in Japan this November, and will arrive on North American shores in December via Bluefin.
