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.
Published to coincide with the release of Warner Bros. and Legendary's Godzilla, directed by Gareth Edwards, this visually stunning book presents an extraordinary new vision for the beloved character through a dynamic selection of concept illustrations, sketches, storyboards, and other pre-production materials. Godzilla: The Art of Destruction is the definitive book on one of the most anticipated films of 2014. Featuring interviews with the director and key crew and cast members, the book tells the complete story of the making of Godzilla from concept to final frames. Comprehensive and enthralling, Godzilla: The Art of Destruction is a book that no fan will want to be without.
