Preview – S.H. MonsterArts & TV Pop!
With Godzilla fever still running high, Bandai has few more little treats for fans.
First is the S.H. MonsterArts Godzilla (2014). In what is easily the best figure from the new movie, this bad boy comes loaded with articulation and an incredible sculpt that looks like the monster stepped right off screen. Godzilla will be available this fall for around $70. NECA’s 12″ Godzilla is arriving soon and with a similar price point, I am REALLY torn as to which one to get. I have huge love for the Bandai S.H. figures and this would take up considerbley less shelf space. Decisions, decisions. It’s a nice problem to have though.
Next is a classic character from Godzilla lore, Bandai brings us the S.H. MonsterArts Kiryu – Heavy Arms Type. There’s been a few Kiryu or MechGodzilla figures released, but this new version has some added features. The figure includes interchangeable parts to re-create either “High Mobility Type” or “Heavy Arms Type“, an originally crafted back unit, right hand unit and repaired head piece. He also features the flip down chest piece to reveal the Absolute Zero Cannon. This one looks like the perfect version of Kiryu to face off with or aid the Millennium Godzilla figure. Look for Kiryu to land in Oct/No with a steep price point of $125.
Funko has released some shots of their latest series of POP! Televsion vinyl figures. Soon you’ll be able to add the cast of Breaking Bad to your collection. The series includes a few versions Walter White and Jesse Pinkman, Saul Goodman, Gus (with a spoilery version too), Hank, and Mike. I feel Gus was only sculpted that way so they could make the other “Two-Face” version. That pose on the normal one doesn’t look right to me. These adorable meth dealers, crime lords, lawyers, cops, and thugs will be available this summer.
