Here’s a Detailed Look at Mondo’s Massive Godzilla Collectible

“Godzilla and Biollante aren’t monsters. It’s the unscrupulous scientists who create them that are monsters.” -Dr. Shiragami in Godzilla vs Biollante.

The horror merch-slingers at Mondo have given us a detailed look at their new Godzilla collectible. Based on Godzilla as he appeared in 1989, it’s the largest collectible the company has produced to date, and it’s available to order now, HERE.

Hector Arce, Mondo’s Creative Director of Toys and Collectibles, states:

“I’ve worked on Godzilla-related products in the past, but nothing like this. When I heard that Mondo had gotten the Toho license, and that we could make Godzilla product, my inner child bounced up and down, while adult me geeked out in a more appropriate fashion. Godzilla ’89 from Godzilla vs Biollante seemed like the best place to start. The movie features one of Godzilla’s most iconic and memorable designs. Two rows of teeth?! Hell yeah!”

Arce continues: “Once we got the design locked in, it was time to find a sculptor. We turned to the awesome Mark Newman to lay in all the groundwork and overall sculpt. He did an amazing job fleshing out the entire project. After his initial pass, I then went in and sculpted/adjusted areas in order to make sure we were being as faithful as possible to the look and aesthetic of the 89 design. 3D-sculpted turns of the final sculpt can be seen below.”

“Godzilla has been a huge part of my life since I can remember. I got my first Godzilla movie when I was 5 and it blew me away. To this day, I’m still a huge fan of the entire series of films, and my love for the franchise is as big as ever. That said, we are proud to present Mondo’s biggest collectible to date: Godzilla 89 Premium Scale Statue. We hope that you all dig the care and work we’ve put into this statue. Stay safe out there, mask up, and hopefully we can see each other at a convention soon,” says Acre.
