Leading up to the release of Godzilla (2014), a wide array of promotions took place. One of the more memorable was the advance poster from 2013. Now Mondo is releasing a statue based on the teaser poster for the 2014 Godzilla film. Created by Phantom City Creative for the 2013 Comic Con, the poster showed a stark image of a Godzilla constructed out of fallen debris against a red background. Now, two years later, the poster is being turned into a statue. Set to debut at the 2015 Comic Con, Mondo has released images of a prototype ahead of the appearance at the show.
No price has been set for the statue at this time. Mondo has said it is scheduled to up for pre-order sometime in Fall of this year.
Image of the prototype can be seen above and below. Click to expand. Below is a description and quote supplied to us by Mondo.
Based on Mondo’s teaser poster for Gareth Edward’s GODZILLA, we’ve taken the stunning Phantom City Creative art and brought it into the third dimension. The Godzilla statue captures the destructive and ominous King of the Monsters in painstaking sculpted detail. Red paint details on both the base and underside of the beast harken back to the background color of the original poster art, while also hinting at an immolating city below.
“The Godzilla statue is something I’m particularly thrilled about. I never thought there would be a statue made from my art, but I’m glad this is the one. As a die hard fan of Godzilla it was a thrill and honor to create an official Godzilla poster, and it’s just as thrilling to have the poster turned into an official Godzilla collectible,” said Justin Erickson of Phantom City Creative.
