SDCC '12: Godzilla Explodes Upon the Con

The tremendously detailed and greatly articulated S.H. MonsterArts figures are the best thing to happen to Godzilla figures since about ever. They can be set in so many poses instead of "just standing there" and look absolutely amazing. The Bluefin/Tamashii Nations booth had five display cases of Godzilla and his friends in various action scenes. Well, one of was a "just standing there" display, but the figures still look awesome doing nothing. This was also the first time many fans got to see the King Ghidorah figure. The figures are all in scale with one another, so King Ghidorah is just insanely massive. Of course, it will also be the most expensive figure of the series so far at $124.99 when it comes out in October. Now that King Ghidorah is almost here it shouldn't be too long until we see Mecha-King Ghidorah.

It's a good thing we weren't standing in line for Hall H.

The S.H. MonsterArts exclusive for SDCC was the Comic-Con Explosion Godzilla. Done in an orange explsiony color, this figure is basically melting Godzilla from Godzilla Vs. Destoroyah. Whenever the Burning Godzilla variant comes along we'll have all three variations of Big-G from the movie. Also debuting at the show was Little Godzilla with a set of crystals to trap him in. I absolutely love this line and can't wait to see what other Godzilla monsters will show up. Oh, and apparently there's a new American Godzilla movie coming out. The poster showing up on the Legendary booth screen caught me by surprise while roaming the Con aisles. Yeah, because the first American Godzilla was so good. I guess we'll see how that turns out.

King Ghidorah is absolutely massive.

Little Godzilla can be kind of annoying in the movies, but look how cute he is.

Apparently there's a new American Godzilla movie coming. Because the last one turned out so good.
