Continue the Reign of Mighty Mechagodzilla with Tamashii Nations

It is time to take a trip back to 2002 as Tamashii Nations is back with their latest Godzilla figure. Coming to life out of the film, Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla , the Type-3 Kiryu has arrived. Debuting as part of their Soul of Chogokin line, Godzilla fans can unleash the might of MechaGodzilla once agai. This Multi-Purpose-Fighting System comes in at 9″ tall, capturing its metallic design nicely with added die-cast elements. Unlike its original space alien roots, this version is a mech suit designed to take on the King of the Monsters. Tamashii Nation has included a nice set of accessories like swappable eyes, the Type-0 Railguns, two Master Blades, and even some interchangeable battle-damaged parts. MechaGodzilla features LEDs bringing this monster to life right before fans eyes, and this figure will come in at roughly $250. Pre-orders are not live just yet, but fans can find all things Tamashii Nations here, and the Type-3 Kiryu is set for a May 2023 release.
