S.H.MonsterArts King Ghidorah Now Available

S.H.MonsterArts King Ghidorah is now available at Amazon and Entertainment Earth, and should be available any day now at BBTS. I’ve opened mine and hope to get to a review eventually, but in the meantime I can tell you that it’s an amazing action figure but be very careful with the wings. They’re not really designed to “flap” from right to left, but rather, they’re designed to move up and down a bit. The special hinge at the base of the wings was reportedly designed to prevent the wings from putting excess weight on the joint, causing the joint to become brittle and break over time. Ironically, this design makes the joint weak when yanked around in other directions, so it’s prone to breaking. Whether or not that risk is worth the price is entirely up to you (though the good news is you can probably return the figure if you order through a U.S. retailer – I didn’t). Being someone who would have sacrificed his entire Transformers collection as a kid for super-articulated Godzilla toys, the risk was worth it to me, but I’m a complete mark for this line.

  • Can't wait for this review. Ghidorah has been one of my favorite monsters since I was a wee lad, and it'll be nice to know what my C-note will be getting me ahead of time (assuming there's any left for me to get when my payday arrives…).

    No… you be insane.
