3-Foot ‘Godzilla’ Toy Gives a Better Look at the Monster

Godzilla has been completely revealed in a giant new toy that stands over 3 feet tall. MTV has our first look at this enormous piece of plastic, which proves that director Gareth Edwards is keeping pretty close to the iconic monster's original Japanese look from 1954. JAKKS Pacific has designed this massive action figure that comes with a swinging tail, 12 points of articulation, and is 43" long.

Senior Vice President of Design, JAKKS Pacific Dominic Laurienzo made the following statement,

""Our massive Godzilla figure is unlike any on the market today. At over three and a half feet in length, we've captured every inch of 'Awesome-ness' from head to tail! From the moment we saw the storyboards, we knew this would be the ultimate addition to the Large Scale Figure world.

The team worked very closely with Warner Brothers and some of the best sculptors to bring to life the magnitude of this character. Whether kid or collector, we are very excited to bring our Godzilla figure to fans of all ages."

This giant action figure will be on sale later this week at participating Toys R Us stores for a suggested retail price of $44.99. We also have a look at the cover of the upcoming behind-the-scenes book Godzilla: The Art of Destruction by Mark Cotta Vaz, with an introduction by director Gareth Edwards.
