Our GODZILLA MUSEUM small-scale statue line continues Series 1 with a jaw-dropping design from Attack Peter. The linocut master has taken what he's done on the page and expanded it into three radical dimensions. His work has already a become a staple of the Godzilla art world, so to see him take the reins on this statue is nothing short of fantastic.
Attack Peter Statement: “Toys have always been my greatest love! One of my earliest toy memories as a child is that of my grandfather buying me what I now know is called the 'Imperial Godzilla!' He was a staple in all my multi-versal toy wars but mostly I admired his expression, form, paint, and even the seams. I took him with me everywhere! Figures like this one inspired so many creations in crayons, clay and eventually linoleum and ink! We are now full circle and I hope when you hold THE KING in your hands, he inspires joy, wonder, love and creativity!”
