I need to be honest with you, dear readers – I’m not sure I’m capable of being objective about the S.H.MonsterArts toy line. “Super-articulated Godzilla action figures” is the sort of thing I found at toy stores in my dreams, but the very idea of them existing in the real world seemed like pure fantasy. And yet, here they are. (True, I wish we could get some monsters from the 1960s and ’70s in addition to the current 1990s lineup, but to say I will take what I can get is an understatement.)
Anyway, as someone who had two Bandai vinyl Godzillas growing up, one of my holy grails was to get a vinyl Ghidorah for him to fight, but sadly, this didn’t come to pass until I was well out of college. And now there’s this…I’m sorry. I know how annoying this sort of gushing is, as other bloggers have annoyed me with the exact same sort of thing.
Anyway, King Ghidorah here (from 1991’s Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah) is going to stand ten inches tall and has fully articulated necks, legs, tails, and wings. He’ll cost around $130. I will own him. Here’s hoping for an extra effects pack with a miniature Godzillasaurus and maybe the Futurians’ M.O.T.H.E.R. UFO.
