Japanese director, writer, sculptor and illustrator Ken-ichi Tanaka of Tanaka Studio has revealed two exciting Godzilla busts. The two busts are based on two vastly different era of Godzilla. One from the original 1954 movie and the other from last year’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters movie.
Each bust is about 17 centimeters (6.6 inches) tall (yes, its tiny) and comes unpainted and unassembled. They are kits with the 1954 model having 6 parts in all while the 2019 model rocking 9 parts. Both are of ivory resin.
Both the 1954 and 2019 Godzilla Busts by Tanaka Studio will ship in early May. But folks in Japan can already pre-order either. Though, we noted that 1954 Gojira is sold out. According to the website, a second batch will be produced, so if you are eyeing on the second one, you may have to hold out for a little longer.
The site that the links pointed to is for Japanese shoppers. Overseas buyers will need to hit up Kaiju Japan website. Last checked, the website is down. But if you really want to, you can get those buy for me service to pick it up for you.
