Unless you have plenty of land and a few million dollars lying around, owning a life-sized Godzilla statue may be an impossible dream. That’s even the case if you veer toward the smaller end of the Godzilla size scale—while in some movies, Godzilla is big enough to crush a few city blocks, in others he’s small enough to battle King Kong. But now, you can at least bring a human-sized Godzilla statue home. And he may still tower over you!
Via Famitsu and Kotaku, Tamashii Nations is releasing a very faithfully recreated statue of Godzilla that stands tall at 6-foot-4-inches. Note that this is the version of Japan’s most famous monster from Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah, as designed by world famous kaiju sculptor Yuji Sakai. This statue was 3D scanned from a smaller model by Sakai, and it’s approximately the height of the suits that the actors wore in the Godzilla films long before CGI became common.
We suppose that you could battle this Godzilla statue for supremacy of your living room, but it may not be a good idea. For starters, this collectible will run you about $40,000, and that’s not counting the cost of delivery from Japan. It’s also a highly limited item, with only 10 statues on sale; there will be a raffle held on November 7 to determine who gets to bring Godzilla home with them.
That price puts it well out of our range, but we’re really impressed by the attention to detail on this statue. It almost makes us want to fill our homes with human-sized versions of Godzilla’s most famous opponents, including Mothra and MechaGodzilla. But at that rate, we’d run out of room for ourselves!
