Godzilla and Kong are coming to New York City this Friday. Kind of. They’ll be part of a special Godzilla exhibition celebrating the release of Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ Godzilla vs. Kong. That exhibition is only one part of the Tamashii Nations Pop-Up Shop. The Midtown Manhattan shop from Bandai Namco Collectibles (Bluefin) and Bandai Spirits Collectors Department will have a wide variety of collectibles for sale.
Visitors will be able to shop for figures from multiple franchises: Godzilla, Marvel, Star Wars, Street Fighter, and Dragon Ball to name a few. The shop will offer merchandise from S.H.Figuarts, S.H.MonsterArts, FiguartsZERO, Figuarts mini, Meisho Movie Realization, and more. There will even be a few special items from S.H.MonsterArts and FiguartsZERO in limited quantities. While supplies last, every purchase comes with a free Tamashii Nations swag bag.
In addition to hunting for hard-to-find collectibles depicting your favorite characters and monsters, shoppers can pose with monsters. The two-part Godzilla exhibition includes a Godzilla statue exhibition and costume and prop exhibition from Godzilla vs. Kong, which premieres on March 31.
The pop-up store will be open from March 5 through April 25 at 605 5th Ave, New York from 11:00a.m. to 7:00p.m. daily. Masks will be required as part of New York City’s COVID-19 retail business mandates. You can get more details at Tamashii Nations’ website.
And if you’re unable to visit in person, don’t sweat it. Bandai Spirits Collectors Department created a special 360 degree virtual experience. This version of the Tamashii Nations Pop-Up Shop will allow everyone to explore the store and the exhibit. It will be available later in March at this link.
