Here we have our first look at the upcoming Toho 30cm Series Godzilla 2014 vinyl figure by X-Plus… painted!
Hmm. I don’t remember his belly being that yellowish. I also don’t remember his mouth being that red. He kind of looks like he just finished eating a live deer or something. I think perhaps the camera that took this shot is just making it look hyper saturated. And, ouch, that neck seam.
Update: ah, I spoke too soon. Here’s another shot with respectable colors:
Still, the sculpt looks fantastic! And the texturing… wow! I want one! I WANT ONE NOW! But according to the sign at the bottom left of the photo, we’re going to have to wait until June. (That, or pre-orders open. Either way, it’s coming.)
Also on display at this show (I don’t know which show it is) are a couple more revelations concerning the upcoming Godzilla Kaiju Museum line. This 4-inchers are made of polyresin and if they are anything at all like their Ultraman cousins which came out a couple of years ago, they are gonna be cool. Though I’m still afraid that Gigan is going to break before it even get out of the box.
Anyway, the big news here is they’ve added Godzilla 1964 and Mothra 1964 to the line-up. (Godzilla 2014, Gigan 2014 and Godzilla 1954 were previously shown and announced.) Also, it seems they’ve made a change to Gigan 2014. Earlier photos showed him with the simple claws, but now’s he’s sporting the rotating saws and neck brace.
I WANT THESE, TOO!
