Get ready to celebrate destruction this July 2012! Bandai Japan’s Collectors label, Tamashii Nations, is proud to announce a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive that will blow the roof off with S.H.MonsterArts Godzilla™ (Comic-Con® Explosion)! Featuring a unique fiery explosion color scheme and twenty-nine points of articulation, this high-end collectable action figure has been professionally crafted by the renowned monster maker Yuji Sakai to meticulously replicate Godzilla’s form as seen in the 1994 Godzilla vs. Space Godzilla (commonly referred to as “MogeGoji”). Illustrated by prominent Japanese artist and character designer, Yasushi Torisawa, exclusive package art commemorates San Diego Comic-Con International 2012, and appropriately depicts the beloved San Diego Convention Center being attacked by Godzilla. Run to the Bluefin booth while supplies still last…and then run for your life!
Born in 1958, Yuji Sakai represents Japan’s top sculpting talent and has come to be known as the world’s foremost Godzilla sculptor. Working as the lead prop designer for the 1999 film, Godzilla 2000: Millennium, Yuji Sakai has since released numerous Godzilla kit’s via his namesake sculptor’s workshop and has received praise from around the globe for his remarkable craftsmanship.
Born in 1962, Yasushi Torisawa is a prominent Japanese illustrator and character designer. His “kaiju” monster design debut began via a collaboration with Godzilla art director Tetsuzo Osawa for the movie Mothra 3. Following this project Yasushi Torisawa has established himself as a renowned character, costume, and visual content designer for Godzilla and other popular Japan “tokusatsu” (live-action) series. He also contributes frequently to “tokusatsu” magazines with original “kaiju” illustrations.
