New Godzilla Figure Series Announced

More evidence has just been uncovered helping prove that 2011 is indeed the greatest year ever witnessed by humankind.

This most recent piece of evidence comes again from Japan at Tamashii Features 2011. Tamashii Features is the personal toy show for Japan’s largest toy company, Bandai.

It was announced at this year’s Tamashii Features that a new line of Godzilla action figures would be released this fall. This would be the first major line of figures for Godzilla since the series of toys released for the 2004 film Godzilla Final Wars. The first wave of figures all focus upon the 1990’s Hesei series of films including Godzilla and Mecha Godzilla from Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II (1993), Moguera from Godzilla vs. Space Godzilla (1994), and Burning¬†Godzilla from Godzilla vs. Destroyah (1995). The new figures all seem to be about seven inches tall, are highly detailed, and are all super-articulated.

If the initial wave of figures this fall sell well Bandai will be releasing more characters from the older films as well. At the moment, there is also no word on how much each figure will cost.

    • Although I’m a big fan of the Heisei series it also seems odd to me that they didn’t begin with a collection of classic designs. My guess is that they are aiming for the market of buyers who grew up with the Heisei series and are so more inclined to purchase figures of designs they have fond memories of.
      They are also trying to get attention from the mecha fans with the inclusion of Mecha Godzilla 2 and Moguera. Moguera wouldn’t really be my first choice for a figure in the first wave. Either way, I hope it sells well so that Bandai releases more!

  1. Hello,

    I wanted to send you a link to my new sculpture Godzilla Does Right.
    You can view photos of the piece at the following link:

    Godzilla Does Right is currently on view at the NURTUREart non-profit art space.
    The piece is part of the group show Blood, Sweat, and Tears: the Work of Art and Tragedy, curated by Krista Saunders and Project Curate.
    The show is up from June 3 through June 24.
    NURTUREart is located at 910 Grand Street in Brooklyn, NY.

    The show is centered around the idea of modern natural disaster and renewal. The Godzilla piece takes the Japanese symbol of destruction and puts him to good use, fixing up the gallery with a somewhat sloppy paint job. The sculpture, made from insulation foam, expanding foam and other materials stands at 6’2″. The white paint Godzilla uses is glossier than the paint on the wall, creating the illusion of a fresh coat of paint. Being a little clumsy, he has a bit of white paint splattered on his hands and body.

    Please feel free to post the pics.
    Thanks,
    ~Boris
