As with the other "Yuji Sakai Modeling Collection" figures, Godzilla 2002 will be manufactured from the master mold in order to reproduce in soft vinyl as much as much detail as possible from Yuji Sakai`s sculpt. Sakai has also supervised the painting of the figure.

The fins have been molded with translucent soft vinyl to allow the LED lights to shine through. The light-up feature requires two AA batteries (sold separately).
