Godzilla 1

Get ready for the Godzilla vs. Destoroyah figure that is smashing its way into our hearts.

Released back in 1995, Godzilla vs. Destoroyah was set to be the final Godzilla movie and made big news when Toho announced that it ended with the nuclear monster’s death. The 22nd Godzilla movie was the last in the “Heisei” series and signaled an end to the constant stream of monster movies being released. The franchise has seen a revival recently with the successful 2014 Hollywood reboot, which has spawned sequels, and a Japanese reboot directed by famed Neon Genesis Evangelion creator Hideaki Anno.

However, the small child in all of us want to go back to the simpler days when Godzilla was a man in a suit rampaging around on a miniature set of Tokyo. Thanks to S.H. MonsterArts and our imaginations, we can replicate that with a brand new figure based on the classic 1995 film.

Dubbed “Burning Godzilla” this 16-centimeter (6.3-inch) tall figure is priced at 9,504 yen (US$89.70). Pre-orders are already underway online and delivery of the fantastic looking toy will begin in December 2016.

In the movie, Godzilla’s heart, which acts like a nuclear power plant, was going through a meltdown so Godzilla radiated heat, light and smoke. The spirit of that meltdown is beautifully represented in detail on this figure, and you’ll be able to recreate all the fabulous scenes you remember from Japan’s top grossing film of 1996.

We’re sure any Godzilla fan would love to add this top-notch figure to their collection and we can’t blame them. With (hopefully) great movies like Godzilla Resurgence coming out and awesome toys like this, Godzilla will continue to reign as the King of Monsters!
