San Diego Comic Con is known the world over as a festive celebration of everything geeky from comic books, to anime, videogames and sci-fi/fantasy movies. The event takes place every summer in San Diego, California and is the premiere event of its kind in North America, and perhaps the world. Every year the largest players in the film, videogame, and animation/comic book industry present sneak peeks of upcoming projects and products currently in development. As such, the event also plays host to the toy and collectible action figure industry as Hasbro, NECA, Sideshow Collectibles, Bandai and others usually have very elaborate displays set up on the convention floor. The summer of 2012 was a big year for Godzilla not only because of the official announcement of the new Legendary Pictures Godzilla movie, but also due to the North American release of Bandai/Tamashi Nation’s SH MonsterArts toy line. To celebrate and promote the release of the MonsterArts toy line Blue Fin USA, North American distributor of the SH MonsterArts toy line, decided to have Bandai/Tamashi Nations produce an exclusive figure for the event. Thus, the SDCC Comic Con Godzilla or officially called the SH MonsterArts Godzilla (Comic-Con Explosion) figure was born. Once sold only at this past summer’s San Diego Comic Con event, this figure is now widely available on Amazon.com and other US based online retailers. I got my own copy of the figure courtesy of our webmaster here at Gforever.net, Hesei. I’d like to thank Hesei for his gracious gesture, providing me with this figure to review and add to my collection. So is this figure worthy of being labeled as an exclusive? Is it a worthy addition to your own personal collection?
Lets find out together shall we?
