BANPRESTO GODZILLA '54
GOLDEN 50TH ANNIVERSARY
Cherry Base with GOJIRA ゴジラ Plaque
Godzilla '54 exclusive is now "coming off the
production line", having made it's public debut at G-FEST XIV in July
2007. This is a very limited KaijuZoo exclusive series of only 5
figures in the
world!!. The figure has all joints glued and detailed as well as
repositioning of the tail and resculpting of the back fins for a more
dynamic pose. The base is constructed by KaijuZoo and made from
solid cherry wood and it is complemented with the hand-made GOJIRA
plaque. Overall, the KaijuZoo Godzilla '54 it is a nice blend of
retro-ruggedness and elegance
befitting the golden 50th anniversary
of the King of the Monsters!!
The 11" Banpresto Godzilla '54 (Shodai-Goji) was sculpted by the famous
Yuji Sakai and was released in 2002. Additionally, in January 2007, the
Banpresto G'54 was voted "First Place" on the Monter Zero forum poll
for the best representation of the essence of the G'54 Shodai
sculpt. Even though the Banpresto G'54 is a great figure, the
molding process left a few details out which I think were worthy of
being corrected in my KaijuZoo version:
1. the tail was modified to give it a natural curve and some lift to
create a more dynamic pose on the wood base, much better than with G'54
just being a "tail dragger".
2. I also removed with "surgery" all of the excessive vinyl at the
bottom of the outer fins. The figure now looks like it did in the movie
with very much improved and more realistic back fins.
