JAKKS Pacific has announced that they are creating a large-scale line of figures which includes a 43" Ultimate Large Scale Godzilla Figure with 12-points of articulation that is one of the largest toys in Godzilla history.
“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. in a release statement.
“As we gear up for the highly anticipated release of the epic feature Godzilla, from Warner Bros.
