When Toho announced Shin Godzilla everyone's curiosity peaked with just what would it look like. When it was revealed, love it or hate it, we knew most toy companies would make figures of it. As we know now there are multiple forms and figures were released of each, with more on the way. While there can easily be debate as to who has done it best, Bandai, S.H. MonsterArts, X-Plus, or even NECA we know who may have hit a homerun with theirs, Albatross Japan. Albatross Japan has been teasing many in progress pics and now has release pics of the pretty much finalize versions of all five figures, yes 5! They are releasing the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and two 4th forms. The first is the version in the water where you only see it's back and tail, the second and third are the ones we see in it's first land appearance, and the to fourth forms are a regular and emissions versions. The sculpts and paint schemes on these figures look incredible besides the completeness of doing all the forms, Albatross Japan did an amazing job, all we need to know now is availability and price. We will post the official final pics and info once available.
