In honor of the late Toho FX director Koichi Kawakita, X-Plus presents the titular foe from Kawakita’s final Godzilla film, GODZILLA VS DESTOROYAH (ゴジラVSデストロイア, Gojira tai Desutoroia, 1995).
Sculpted in scale with the Toho Large Monster Series: Godzilla 1995 figure, Destoroyah stands approximately 34cm tall. The monster’s four wings are sculpted of injection molded PVC. To compensate for the added weight of the wings, the figure has been injected with poly resin below the knees. The interior of the body is reinforced with urethane foam to maintain the shape of the figure. In addition, decals will reproduce the look of blood vessels in Destoroyah’s eyes.
The Shounen Ric Limited Edition comes with a bonus Aggregate Destoroyah figure not available from other retailers. Molded in poly resin, the Aggregate will be packaged separately from the larger Destoroyah.
