Edit: Looks like it'll be sold at a Japanese theater starting Saturday in limited quantities. Sounds tricky to obtain. Drat.

I'm sure it'll hit ebay but not cheap.

That's interesting, because that cup lid's sculpt seems to be more movie accurate than the NECA and SHMA figures... :shock:

I'd buy that in a heartbeat though.

Reminds me more of Godzilla 2000 than 2014. The brows are understated, and the entire mouth looks more traditional than the latter design.

I'll go for the maquette and save for that, but I doubt I'd want to go for a figure that looks like Godzilla 2000 in Legendary style.


Gareth Edwards looks like Godzilla in that pic.

Ah so it's fan-made, and an anti-bronto feet fan at that. Some of the spikes are pretty wonky too now that I look at it.
Still an impressive fan piece though.

Probably so, I've fallen in love with the "bronto-feet", so it kinda irked me when I saw SHMA's Godzilla 2014 figure, I hope this thing isn't legit, I demand movie accuracy ONLY :P

That's an incredibly made sculpture though. It pushes me to make a Godzilla maquette of my own!

Actually it's neither fan-made or merchandise. It's a Japanese promotional prop.

They must really not care for the feet.

I want Kong v Godzilla To Be like BvS but...y'know, better critically received. With Mothra filling the role of Wonder Woman and Ghidorah filling the role of Doomsday. Here's to hoping. :D

Calling It Now, GvKK, King Kong won't be an inch under 250 ft.

Just let them be glad it's not GINO at all. PERIOD. Still the statue is very epic looking and realistic. He does look like a mean alligator! :D

I saw that, and my Barnes and Noble also had the Famous Monsters with Bob Eggleton's Godzilla 2014 cover.

Actually not to sound mean or to contradict how you feel about 98...but in many polls and interviews Young and Old Japanese denizens prefer him over all the other Goji's having 64 on second place.

Yes story wise 98 was heavily flawed and his death was the only reason TOHO took the title out of him but if he had died like any of the previous Goji's(by some explainable chemical or a bigger threat) he would be in the ethos of the other Goji's and rather far more liked by everyone.

I understand there are suits not everyone like(some Heisei fans hate the Millennium suits and Millennium hate Showa, Showa hate vs Heisei and so on) and the same can be said if 98 would have been more widely accepted and a true box office success he would have been in that fight but recognized as a regular instead of the outcast/illegitimate/impostor by some fans.

Yet the point I'm driving is that when 14 was finally revealed many complained that they wanted something akin 98 style and how much they loved 98 when they first saw him and while Japan is not consider a bellwether for what the majority of the fans/consumers of the franchise want it's always interesting that the vocal majority(the smallest percent of consumers) hate him yet majority(including myself) want a 98 SHMA and to this day his merchandise sells for a lot.

It's weird but I know I love them all and I want an SHMA of 98 and all the other G's in my shelf one day ^_^
