Sideshow Collectibles just posted a video tease of their upcoming high quality statue of the new Godzilla design.
I don’t think I like it.
I did at first. I watched the video in awe at all of the amazing detail in the sculpt and started to salivate imagining a huge, awesome Godzilla 2014 statue in my collection. That is, until they pulled back and showed the whole thing.
I mean, what the hell is up with the head turned back like that? I was hoping for something more standard and less comic bookish. All my dreams (well, one of them) are crushed now! heh. Seriously, this is Godzilla and this is important stuff!
I really believed this was going to be the ultimate Godzilla 2014 in my collection. But that whiplash head-turn has me very disappointed. And I wasn’t expecting that. I thought, how the hell could they mess this up? There’s no way they could find a way to position the Big G in a funky dance pose like they did with their Pacific Rim Gipsy Danger statue.
Anyway, sorry for my rant. I’m a collectible reviewer and I’m used to nitpicking. Watch the video and see/judge for yourself. Everything else about this statue (besides the head turn) looks freaking amazing. Perhaps I’ll change my mind after Sideshow releases more photos.
I have yet to see the movie (which I will do 2 hours from now). Who knows, perhaps I’ll find this pose is actually accurate after which I’ll take it all back.
If I don’t see this in the movie, then all my hopes will rest upon X-Plus for a more standard looking, high quality vinyl version.
