S.H.MonsterArts Battra Coming in January
The popular kaiju Battra from the film GODZILLA VS MOTHRA (ゴジラVSモスラ, Gojira tai Mosura, 1992) joins the S.H.MonsterArts series!
The figure sculpt has been master crafted in exquisite detail by Yuji Sakai, and features clear parts as part of his head for enhanced realism. Battra also features advanced articulation — a characteristic of the S.H.MonsterArts series — maw, wing and leg areas are also fully articulated. In addition, a special display stand has been included in this set to portray Battra in flying poses.
A Tamashii Web Exclusive in Japan, this figure has been made a regular release in the US thanks to the folks at Bluefin.
