‘Godzilla’ Toy and Book Kit Reveals First Look at the King of Beasts
Although Gareth Edwards' 'Godzilla' did well in hyping fans up for its 2014 debut with the first trailer, we still haven't received a face-to-face look at the iconic movie monster. However, with merchandise prepping for release alongside the film, a new look at one of the products showcases Godzilla in all his glory.
Godzilla-Movies.com first got wind of the new product image, but a little digging led to Australia's New South Books, which has a hi-res image of the upcoming "Godzilla: With Light and Sound" book kit with its companion Godzilla figurine from Running Press, said to hit shelves April 2014.
UPDATE: This product image has been removed from the web. We'll be sure to update you with the latest looks as they are officially released.
According to the product description from Running Press and New South Books:
Timed to coincide with the release of Godzilla in May 2014, this kit features the legendary monster with a sixty-year history of popularity at his finest—with “fire-breathing” light and sound of his iconic roar!
As for the book, Amazon states that it's a "sticker book filled with Godzilla illustrations."
'Godzilla' stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen and Bryan Cranston, and features the legendary title monster in a fight "against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity's scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence." You'll get your full cinematic rendering of the newly remade Godzilla when the film hits theaters on May 16, 2014, but in the meantime, let us know what you think of the creature's new look in the comments.
