Ultimate Large Scale Godzilla Figure from JAKKS Pacific Now Available
Leading U.S. toy and consumer products company, JAKKS Pacific, Inc. has released the Ultimate Large Scale Godzilla Figure for its Big Figures line. Inspired by Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ much-anticipated feature film, GODZILLA, the figure comes with 12 points of articulation, a height of 24” and a length of over 43” — making it one of the largest toys in Godzilla’s 60 year history.
The Ultimate Large Scale Godzilla Figure is available now exclusively at Toys “R” Us and will be made available to retailers nationwide as the film’s May 16, 2014 release draws closer. The suggested retail price is $49.99.
The Ultimate Large Scale Godzilla Figure is the first release under JAKKS Pacific’s licensing agreement with Warner Bros. Consumer Products to bring this iconic and legendary figure to life with a line of large-scale figures and other toy products. The agreement to manufacture, distribute and market Godzilla toys and products marks a decade long partnership between the two companies, which also includes recent collaborations for Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ MAN OF STEEL and THE DARK KNIGHT Trilogy, properties also brought to life in JAKKS’ Big Figures line.
“This new version of GODZILLA is an epic rebirth of the iconic Toho property that transcends the disaster movie genre. The monster himself is a symbol that has remained an indelible part of pop culture for the last 60 years,” stated Emily Castel, Legendary’s Chief Marketing Officer. “We can’t wait for the fans to get their hands on the line of products that JAKKS and Warner Bros. have created that embody the experience of Godzilla, King of the Monsters.”
“We are excited to partner with Warner Bros. Consumer Products once again to bring this world-renowned iconic figure to life in our Big Figures line. We have extensive experience in the creation and marketing of large scale figures based on powerhouse film franchises and we expect this new line of even bigger figures to make a true contribution to the Godzilla legacy,” said Jack McGrath, Chief Operating Officer, JAKKS Pacific, Inc.
“As we gear up for the highly anticipated release of the epic feature GODZILLA, from Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, WBCP is thrilled to partner with JAKKS Pacific on a larger than life figurine that will truly do justice to the ‘King of Monsters,’” said Karen McTier, Executive Vice President, Domestic Licensing and Worldwide Marketing, Warner Bros. Consumer Products.
Toho Co., Ltd.’s Godzilla franchise contains one of the most widely recognized movie monsters worldwide, including 28 films, multiple television programs, video games and book series.
Gareth Edwards directs GODZILLA from a screenplay by Max Borenstein and Oscar nominee Frank Darabont (THE GREEN MILE, THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION), story by David Callaham and Max Borenstein, based on the character “Godzilla” owned and created by TOHO CO., LTD.
