The first ever collaboration between Studio Ghibli and figma!
Studio Ghibli's newest short special effects film 'Giant God Warrior Appears in Tokyo' is being screened at Anno Hideaki's Special Effects exhibition, and from that film comes a figma of the Giant God Warrior. A replica model based off a life-size puppet of the Giant God Warriorused for special effects in the film has been shrunk down even smaller with the use of a 3D scanner, and then sculpted into a figma by sculptor Takayuki Takeya!
The figma also includes a number of optional extras, such as head parts to recreate the proton beam attack, a rod of light, and wings to display it soaring through the air.
This is awesome! I pulled the information from Good Smile Company's site! You actually have two ways of getting a hold of this figma. One way is at the Tokyo Gendai Art Gallery where the short film will be on display between July 10th-October 8th! Or you can wait and get it at Good Smile Company's Online site but you will have to wait for that! You will be able to preorder it there from October 8th to the 22nd this year and wont get it to February of 2013!
I will get one of these, Nausicaa was one of my favorite manga's and this was a very interesting character that Nausicaa had a bond with.
