The Legends in 3D line will add one of cinema’s most notorious monsters – the King of the Monsters, in fact. A new Godzilla Legends 3D figure will be released in the fall of 2022, inspired by the 1962s King Kong vs. Godzilla. The figure is a finely detailed 1/2 scale bust with an iceberg resin base. It will be available for pre-order starting January 21 at comic book stores and online retailers and limited to 1,000 pieces.
This Godzilla is based on his appearance in Toho Studios King Kong vs. Godzilla, a landmark film for the character. The first one Godzilla a color film, it was part of the Shōwa era, the first era of Godzilla films that helped establish the iconic character. King Kong vs. Godzilla It was the first time Godzilla and King Kong were on screen together. The Godzilla costume used in the film was never used again and remained a recognizable and iconic look for the character. This makes this incarnation of Godzilla the perfect choice for the Legends in 3D line, which features fan-favorite characters in some of their most recognizable looks, such as Yoda or comic-accurate Wolverine.
Another reason why this version of Godzilla may have been selected for this figure is King Kong vs. Godzillarenewed success after last year Godzilla vs. Kong. Although it did not receive the best critical reviews, Godzilla vs. Kong proved to be both a box office and streaming success. Godzilla vs. Kong mainstream popularity served as a pathway to Godzilla’s filmography, especially with all of the Shōwa-era films available on HBO Max.
The figure represents the iconic King Kong vs. Godzilla suit in remarkable detail. This is an approximately 10 inch resin bust. The base is an iceberg because in the film Godzilla emerges from an iceberg, having been frozen at the end of the previous film Godzilla attacks again (1955). In a sense, the bust bursts from the iceberg just like Godzilla does in the movie.
