You Deserve the Highest Quality Godzilla Toys and We Know Where to Find Them!
There are a lot of different Godzilla toys out there on the market. They range from low quality rubber kids toys to incredible action figures. We love all of them, but we have to admit: we have favorites. See, when we think of the King of Monsters, we have a certain mental picture. Lesser reproductions just don’t do this Kaiju justice.
We want you to get your money’s worth when you add this giant monster to your collection. So we smashed through the internet and found the ten best Godzilla toys you can buy for your collection right now.
NECA Godzilla (1954)
If you’re looking for a great figure at a great price, NECA is your company. They sell their figures in just about every toy store for a steal. The figure has decent articulation that leads to some fun poses. The tail lacks some of the articulation of more expensive figures, but for the price, it’s a nice addition to any Kaiju collection.
S.H. MonsterArts Godzilla (1954)
Another 1954 Godzilla, but this one is the first of many S.H. MonsterArts pieces we will talk about today. Let’s face it: if you want a top-end posable Godzilla, you go to the Bandai line. The sculpt is way more detailed than the NECA version, and the articulation is better, too. This is a great starter piece in a S.H. MonsterArts collection, especially if you love the classic Godzilla look.
S.H. MonsterArts Godzilla (2001)
This figure perfectly captures the likeness of the 2001 Godzilla. It has the hunched back, huge spines, and hooked claws that made this rendition of our favorite monster truly breathtaking. The articulation is out of this world for some great posing, and the sculpt (as always) is phenomenal.
S.H. MonsterArts Godzilla Feat. EVA-01
This figure is a fun nod to Hideaki Anno, who directed Neon Genesis Evangelion and more recently Shin Godzilla. The figure was released to highlight their partnership, and as a nod to fans of both series. While the sculpt has not changed much from the traditional Godzilla, the bright and punchy colors of the EVA-01 unit give the King of Monsters a whole new look.
S.H. MonsterArts Godzilla (Ohrai Noriyoshi Poster Color Ver.) “Godzilla Vs. Mechagodzilla II”
This is the same sculpt they used for the EVA-01 Godzilla, and we love it. The Ohrai Noriyoshi color version has the bright blue fired up spines that let you know a plasma blast isn’t far behind. This version is big, posable, and gorgeous. The slight bit of gold over the typical Godzilla gray is an excellent touch and gives more depth to the fantastic texture of the sculpt.
S.H. MonsterArts Godzilla (2014) Spitfire Edition
The most recent American Godzilla might not have been the monster-packed Kaiju showdown we dreamed of, but this version of Godzilla was powerful on screen. Gone are the Showa era googly eyes, and thank every star that it’s not the giant iguana that was GoiN (Godzilla only in name). This version adds metallic blue to the spines to recreate the plasma fueled monster from the end of the movie. It also comes with a metallic blue flame accessory that can be used with any other figure of the same scale.
S.H. MonsterArts Ultimate Burning Mode Godzilla
One of the most iconic forms of Godzilla was the King melting down in Godzilla vs. Destroyah. With his heart melting down like a poorly built reactor, Godzilla is dying. This is the best version of Burning Mode Godzilla. Plus, the addition of the optional smoke really puts this one over the top.
S.H. MonsterArts 2000 Millennium Version Godzilla
Bandai did us a solid when they resculpted their Godzilla 2000 model and released the Millennium version. This figure did a much better job capturing the King of Monsters in all his glory than its predecessor. The spines have the iconic jaggedness that they possessed in the 2000 movie, and the claws are gloriously hooked. We believe this version is leaps and bounds better than the original release, even if the price is a lot higher.
S.H. MonsterArts Kou Kyou Kyouku Godzilla (1989)
It’s rare to find a high-end action figure that does light (Kou), sound (Kyou), and music (Kyouku) without losing the articulation we know and love. Well Godzilla toy fans, Bandai has done it. This godzilla has three different roars, radioactive breath, and footstep sounds. Oh, and they didn’t stop there — the mouth and fins light up blue with radioactive energy (okay, not really — it’s done with LEDs). They topped it all off with two different music tracks, the “Godzilla Theme” and “Godzilla vs. The Tanks.” You do lose some articulation in the chest due to the circuitry, but we think it’s a worthy cause. It’s definitely one of the cooler Godzilla toys you can buy right now.
S.H. MonsterArts Fourth Form Awakening Shin Godzilla
When S.H. MonsterArts released its first attempt at Shin Godzilla, fans were a little… underwhelmed. While it was a neat piece, it didn’t command the intensity that this version of the King required. Instead of giving up, Bandai released the Fourth Form Awakening Shin Godzilla into the line. This figure remedies all of the flaws of the first attempt and adds some really nice accessories. This is one of the best Godzilla toys we’ve seen in a long time. Let this radioactive monstrosity command the center space on your shelves. You won’t be disappointed.
