We have been posting about these Shin Godzilla figures from Albatross Japan, now we know they are being released as a 4 piece set, first, second, third, and fourth (final) forms all together. These are polystone figures with the fourth form standing 28cm tall (approx 11 inches) and being a whooping 80cm in length (approx 32 inches). The set will retail for 52,000 yen (approx $460 US) and they can be pre-ordered now with release sometime in 2017 (we will updated the info once we have it). There is no word yet if these will be released separately or when the "roaring/emissions" version will be released, we will update that info once we get it.
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.
We post pics from C3 Tokyo 2016 revealing Albatross Japan's Shin Godzilla figures, they were the Shin Godzilla roaring version as well as the two earlier forms. Now they have shown Shin Godzilla in a regular version (whether this is a completely different figure or just a swap out of heads remains to be seen). Below are the two versions side by side as well as a prototype pic of one of the early forms, as well as some more pics of the regular version.
Albatross Japan teased recently that they would release a Shin Godzilla figure, at C3 Tokyo 2016 they surprise everyone by revealing not only a Shin Godzilla figure but it's two early forms. All three figures are unpainted prototypes but what is interesting is the size difference of the three, each larger than the next. Bandai has released these and S.H. MonsterArts versions were revealed in a magazine spread but theirs were fairly close in size to each other. The Albatross Japan ones are very different in size, possibly more accurate to their size in the film. There isn't much more info on them yet but we will update it once we have it.
