XM Studios is excited to present their second Godzilla release: Shin Godzilla Bust!
The designs are conceptualized and interpreted by XM Studios, together with acclaimed illustrator and sculptor Tanaka Kenichi, who is the 2D and 3D artist for this first XM release.
[Background of Shin Godzilla]
Shin Godzilla appeared in the 2016 Shin Godzilla movie as a mutated ancient sea creature, a result of taking in radioactive material that was abandoned 60 years ago. With the ability to mutate its own DNA, it developed limbs, shrunk its gills, and fully developed its dorsal spines, rapidly became a titular mutant abomination unleashing Heat Ray leaving a trail of destruction, annihilating a large part of Tokyo.
XM’s interpretation of the Shin Godzilla follows the original Japanese film, depicting a more grotesque and frightening appearance as compared to the other incarnations. Each scale, crease, and fold are individually sculpted and hand-painted to create a realistic, sinister Shin Godzilla. The large jagged dorsal plates are detailed with porous bony structure in the centre, the uneven rows of jagged teeth are spotted with some teeth protruding from the skin above its mouth and the red scales that resembles scars add to the ominous appearance of Shin Godzilla.
The base for the bust is kept plain and simple to draw attention to the intricate details of the bust design. A plaque with the name of the film is embossed on the back of the bust.
