The other weekend I had to go to Tokyo for work, and on the Sunday I managed to get a few hours to wander round Akihabara checking out all the figures, models and videogames.
I came across this Shin Godzilla Premium Figure Repaint Ver in a flea-market just below the UDX theatre.
I actually saw this figure in various places around Akihabara ranging from ￥1,400 to ￥3,000, so it definitely pays to look around before buying!
After the huge success of Shin Godzilla in Japan (still being shown some 6 months after release at certain cinemas), and with the Western version of the franchise making a ton of money, Universal Studios Japan has announced their new 4D Cinema attraction…Godzilla!
As part of the cool Japan themed attractions (alongside Metal Suit Gundam and Attack on Titan), Godzilla: The Real 4D experience will run from mid-January to June 2017.
The new English language trailer for Shin Godzilla (also known as Godzilla Resurgence) was released the other day. It’s getting a Western release through Funimation. Ironically the official trailer on their website is not available to watch in Japan…go figure. But I found this version of it on YouTube.
It’s a bit all over the place, but it’s great news that the movie’s getting a release outside Japan.
I prefer this more moody, Japanese trailer though…
