A painted Gigantic Shin Godzilla appears on Hobby Search for Gigantic Bucks
Without warning, the Gigantic Series Godzilla (2016) Fourth Form appeared on Japanese site, Hobby Search, tonight.
All of the images of this release which we have seen up until now have been unpainted. This is the first time we get to see the new Gigantic Shin showing all of its colors.
Hobby Search reports that this beast will be 47cm (18.5 inches) tall and 83cm (32.6 inches – over two feet!) long.
This figure will be the sixth in the Gigantic Series.
UPDATE: STYLIZED? NOT SO MUCH
Up until now, it’s been my opinion that this figure was pretty heavily stylized. The pose is far more dynamic than anything I remember in the movie. Well, I’d like to take that back.
After re-watching Shin Godzilla today, I noticed that Shin Godzilla is in damn near the same pose as the X-Plus figure in the shot where he fires his atomic beam for the second time. Collector Eric Henry then showed me the image above which looks almost exactly like the figure.
So I take it all back. The new Gigantic Series Shin Godzilla is more movie accurate than anything else!
GOTTA CATCH ‘EM ALL
A recent magazine article in Japan shows this figure alongside the upcoming Large Monster Series Godzilla (2016) Second Form and the Toho 30cm Series Godzilla (2016) Third Form, possibly implying that all three are in scale with each other. All three would make for one hell of a collection.
There is no word yet on a RIC Exclusive version. So, keep watching the X-Plus site or keep checking back here at Kaiju Addicts for more news.
Hobby Search is asking for ¥64,600 (about $570). That, plus a monster of a shipping bill from Japan, may put your wallet into a coma.
If the gigantic price of this new figure just doesn’t sit well with you, then you may want to wait for the release of the Toho 30cm Series Yuji Sakai Godzilla (2016) Fourth Form due to come out later this year. It just won’t be anywhere near as large.
The Gigantic Series Godzilla (2016) Fourth Form vinyl figure by X-Plus is expected to make its landing in September.
