The largest Godzilla figure from Tamashii Nations to date, the massive Biollante joins the incredibly detailed S.H. MonsterArts line! Highly requested through consumer feedback, Biollante has finally been approved for release after extensive testing to maintain the quality fans have come to expect in the line. To further insure authenticity, the original creator, Fuyuki Shinada, of the Biollante model used in the “Godzilla vs. Biollante” movie was brought on board to personally plan, sculpt, and approve this piece to create the most accurate articulated Biollante figure ever. Replicating her pulsating core just like the film, the chest area features a special light-up gimmick and light color band that be changed via control switch. S.H.MonsterArts Biollante’s meticulous sculpt detail, massive proportion and thorough articulation at every neck joint allow for realistic portrayal of scenes from the movie. At an astounding 12″, Biollante dwarfs even the mighty King Ghidorah, making her the largest foe Godzilla will ever tangle with.
Every so often, you get a toy you never, ever thought would get made. “Super-articulated Biollante” are three words I never thought would go together. Godzilla vs. Biollante is one of the three Heisei films I really enjoy (my favorite is The Return of Godzilla, followed by Biollante and then Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II), so, despite the $230(!!) price tag, I’m planning to get this figure. This, hopefully, will represent the high-water mark for S.H.MonsterArts in terms of price…I can’t think of any other Toho monsters, at least, that would be this large.
The Godzilla in the image above is the same statue/maquette of the “BioGoji” figure we saw when the Biollante prototype was revealed. The BioGoji suit is my favorite Heisei suit, and I sincerely hope we get a BioGoji SHMA figure to go with Biollante. I’m sure most of you think all Godzilla suits look alike (you kaijuists!), but the BioGoji suit is leaner and more ferocious than the ’94 Godzilla vs. Spacegodzilla suit, which is the current “regular” Godzilla available in the S.H.MonsterArts line.
