There are two reasons I can't pass up these figures.
- 1.) The Hensei era Godzilla (as he appeared in the films from 1991-1995) is my preferred Godzilla design
- Although there have been countless Godzilla and Mechagodzilla figures before these, none have been so detailed or so articulated. Godzilla has at least 29 points of articulation -- articulation that is based on the S.H. Figuarts style. You can even put these monsters into their swimming or flying poses.
Despite the currency exchange from Yen to Canadian dollars and the diecast parts involved, which will crank up the price, I am at the least going to splurge and order this Godzilla figure. Hope I don't get addicted, because Bandai already has plans to follow up with the release of the 1994 Space Godzilla and Moguera, which they displayed in this amazing diorama at the 2011 Comic-Con.
