Unboxing My Latest Godzilla collectibles

Recently, I received a brand new Shin Godzilla figure that I had pre-ordered a few months ago. When I first saw it, I was so ecstatic and thrilled by the awesomeness of it that I was inspired to write this piece.

Since I was a kid I’ve always been a fan of Godzilla. Now, I’m an avid fan and collector of Godzilla figurines. I have several X Plus, S.H. MonsterArts, Marmit, and Bandai figurines. I recently bought one of the Omega Beast Shin Godzilla (Awakening Version). It’s now the mainstay in my Godzilla collection.

The Omega Beast Shin Godzilla

The Omega Beast Shin Godzilla (Awakening Version) Figure is an absolute work of art and is a sculptured masterpiece. The paint and details are unbeatable. Shin’s wrinkled body is glistening with brilliant colors. The pose of the savage and sharp teeth are beautiful and terrifying.

The size is amazing and the design is amazing. It’s a must-have for every Godzilla fan. My opinion is that this is the most impressive Shin Godzilla figure produced to this point. It’s even blows the X-plus massive series of Shin Godzilla out of the water. The sculpture really captures the beast’s fury and anger.

What is Shin Godzilla?

Shin Godzilla is believed to be an evolutionary prehistoric super-organism that was aquatic. It was transformed by the nuclear waste thrown into the ocean by humans. In Japanese mythology, he is believed to be God in the flesh.

Is it Godzilla? It’s an entirely different version of Godzilla. Like the different versions of Godzilla the one in this is extremely radioactive. It is erupts and pulses with radioactivity. The creature’s skin is sagging and folds over the other, revealing radioactive glowing reds and purples. The mouth of the creature splits and is deformed due to evolution.

The mouth developed that method to counteract the nuclear breath as a defense mechanism in case of attack the entire body was filled with radioactive blood that resembles boiling lava. Even Shin’s tiny hands and arms are pumped with radioactive blood. Shin is truly the most terrifying of Godzilla’s.

The film titled Shin Gojira was first made available on the 25th of July 2016, in Tokyo. According to the producers that they picked the title because of the many meanings it could convey. The Japanese language, the use of different characters in kanji that form”shin” symbols “shin” could be a way to convey the meaning that is “true” as well as “god.”

Godzilla Characters and Fun

The act of collecting Godzilla figures can be lots of entertainment, fun and expensive. If you’re anything like me, you’ll want every one of the Godzilla figures that you can get the chance to get. If you don’t have an endless amount of space and money, you’ll have to choose the most impressive figures.

How do you decide which figures to purchase? Which ones are worth your hard-earned money on? With the number of brands and figures to pick from, it can be difficult when it comes to purchasing Godzilla figures.

Selecting the Best Manufacturers

Here are some high-end firms that make high-quality figurines and sculptures:

S.H. MonsterArts

When purchasing Godzilla figurines, generally the more detailed the sculpt is, the more you’ll pay for it.

If the figure is properly well-sculpted and painted it becomes more desirable. From my experience, nearly every Godzilla figure goes up in value after the figure has been gone, unless it’s a knockoff. It’s not uncommon to find figures that double or triple in price.

My Favorite Godzilla Figure Lines

Here are some Godzilla manufacturer lines and figure lines to consider if you’re looking to start an assortment.


My personal most cherished Godzilla figures are made by SHONEN-RIC/XPLUS. They are never lacking in details and are typically movie-suit exact. Also, they appear exactly like the costume in the film all the way to the seams.

The X-PLUS figures are extremely intricately sculpted, detailed, and painted. They typically range in price between $89 for small figures up to several thousand dollars for large figures, based upon “when” as well as “where” you buy them. If you are considering purchasing X-PLUS Godzilla figures, you’ll need to act quickly and get your pre-orders. Figures typically sell out fast and, once they’re sold out become scarce, they can be difficult to locate at a reasonable cost.

Similar to the huge series from X-PLUS the figures can initially be pre-ordered for between $400-$1200. You can now get them for thousands of dollar on ebay. Incredible figures such as the X-PLUS massive collection Shin Godzilla are selling on eBay for more than $2,500!

The Omega Beast Series by EZHobi

The Omega Beast Series by EZHobi are among the most stunning figures ever created. They use special paints and transparent materials to create an exclusive appearance that is only available in the Omega Beast Series. These are extremely rare large and costly.

If you are able to find one, I would highly suggest buying it. It is possible to spend about $1,300 for one of these figures. They also tend to increase in value therefore, make sure you get your order in as fast as you can. If not, getting one could be a challenge and costly.

S.H. MonsterArts

S.H. MonsterArts figures are also among the top figures that are available and are sought-after by collectors. They have many points of articulation that allow for a broad variety of possibilities and movements.

The paint job, details and sculpts are usually top-quality when you purchase S.H. MonsterArts figures. Prices for pre-orders typically range between $60-$150, based on the retailer you purchase them from. But once they are sold out and go to eBay the prices can jump to $400.

Bandai American as well as Bandai Spirits

Bandai figures are among the most desirable figures you can purchase. They’re fairly inexpensive and are an excellent choice for new collectors who want to begin collecting. Prices vary from around 10 dollars at the lower end , all the way to several hundred dollars at the top end. There are plenty of great figures in the lower price bracket.

Playmate and MonsterVerse Figures

The MonsterVerse includes movies featuring Godzilla as well as King Kong produced by Legendary Entertainment and co-produced by WB.

MonsterVerse characters are manufactured by a variety of companies, including Walmart. Walmart offers its own range that includes Godzilla MonsterVerse figures by Playmates. Surprisingly, the figures are more impressive than you expected and worth a look. The prices at Walmart vary from $10 to $30. However, once they’ve sold out you will be charged more.

Godzilla and Friends

The Godzilla universe is comprised of many kinds of monsters, from small to big to tall and hairy. Some are close to Godzilla while others are enemies however all of them have huge personalities.

Certain monsters, such as Baragon are small adorable, cute, and harmless Some, such as Biollante are massive and terrifying. There are also mechanical monsters like Mecha-King Ghidorah as well as Mechagodzilla. Godzilla is a fascinating world. Godzilla is an incredibly exciting one.
