SH MonsterArts Battra

January 20, 2016

SH Monster Arts Battra is beautiful. The wings are striking and the patterning on the body is true to the movie in which Battra appears, as one would expect from SHMA. Finely crafted, to scale with all the other SHMA pieces, Battra comes with its own stand and makes a wonderful counterpoint to Mothra. I really like the red accents on the black body and the design that makes Battra…

Enter Mothra

January 4, 2016

Mothra is perhaps tied with Godzilla and Biollante for my favorite Kaiju. This is heresy I know and yet there it is. I even confess to liking the Mothra trilogy. Yes, I like it. I like DesGhidorah (Death Ghidorah) and the concept of a monster that feeds off of the life energy of plants and the natural world plays right into the strong ecological messages of Godzilla, Mothra, and even…

SHMA Mecha King Ghidorah

December 8, 2015

In the article about SHMA King Ghidorah, Mecha King Ghidora was mentioned and felt kind of tacked on. But the SHMA Mecha King Ghidorah really deserves its own article. It’s a gorgeous piece. The piece stands 25 cm tall (around 10 inches Imperial) and has ball joints in the neck and tail for maximum freedom in posing. Also the clever use of die cast metal makes it really look authentic….

SHMA Biollante

November 30, 2015

Another masterpiece from S.H. MonsterArts is Biollante from their articulation series. As with the other pieces from this collection Biollante is to scale and she is huge compared to Godzilla. This is another statement piece in a collection. Fully articulated she is ideal for setting up scenes with other figures in your collection. Biollante has one of the most fascinating back stories of any Godzilla foe, if you ask me….
