Match Moves with Mondo’s COLOSSAL Creature Statue

Match Moves with Mondo’s COLOSSAL Creature Statue

Nacho Vigalondo‘s Colossal opened in theaters this Friday to a good deal of acclaim, and is well on its way to being a cult hit at the very least. In it, Anne Hathaway plays an alcoholic who–in the tradition of any number of ’90s indie flicks–moves back to her quaint li’l hometown in order to reconnect with the people she left behind, and, perhaps, get her life back in order. Oh yes, and she also unexpectedly finds that when she stands within the bounds of a local playground, she somehow summons and controls, movement by movement, an enormous destructive kaiju halfway around the world in Seoul. Shenanigans naturally ensue. You can be sure you won’t see a premise more original this year.

Sporting a creature design that is arguably even cooler than any of the kaiju spotted in Pacific Rim, the enormous creature from Colossal is a gangly critter with horns, a permanent frown, and a clueless dog-like expression that make it scary and kind of cute all at once. Mondo, who has small pile of Colossal-related merch for sale over on their website, has begun selling, for a mere $150, a 13″-tall exclusive reproduction of the monster, made of polystone, and which has been constructed using the original digital model from the film. Also, to add some authenticity, the base is made to look like an actual city street in Seoul.

The statue, sculpted and designed by Ramirez Studios, Jason Wires, Paul Hanley at Jason Wires Productions, and Magical Illusion Factory, won’t ship until later in the year (the 4th quarter of 2017, according to the website), but pre-orders are currently up and running.

There are two price points on the statue. For $150, you can get just the statue, but pony up an extra $5, and you can also get a copy of the film’s eventual Blu-ray, signed by Nacho Vigalalondo himself.

Just look at that face. How could you resist?
