Set Contents Godzilla Body Godzilla Tail Display Stand Instruction Manual The Godzilla design from SHIN GODZILLA (??????, Shin Gojira, 2016) comes to X-Plus’ “Yuji Sakai Modeling Collection” of 30cm Toho figures sculpted by the renowned artist, Yuji Sakai. Inspired by a shot of Godzilla crossing a viaduct in the SHIN GODZILLA trailer, Sakai sculpted and released a limited edition resin Godzilla garage kit in June 2017. The prototype for that kit is the basis for the new X-Plus figure, with the artist supervising the casting of the master mold used for production of the soft vinyl figures in order to reproduce the original`s high degree of detail (particularly in the teeth and dorsal fins). While there is no light-up version of the figure, the Shounen Ric website is offering an exclusive Limited Edition in which the red highlights on Godzilla`s body are molded in clear plastic and painted silver from the inside to create a glowing effect.
