With Warner Bros. and Legendary’s “Godzilla” hitting theaters in May of next year, merchandising for the film is already ramping up. Getting a glimpse of the big green guy way ahead of the film’s release, even as a toy, leaves one wanting for more. Check out the image of the “Godzilla Lights & Sound Figure” and tie-in book. The sculpt doesn’t do Godzilla justice. Aside from lacking any of the finer details, the figure could use larger dorsal fins and two proper looking feet. Also, he does look like he just paid a visit to the chiropractor, but at the end of the day, it’s still Godzilla. With retailers having to wait to post any images of the creature on the Internet until sometime in early 2014, this could still be in the prototype stage with room left for improvement! What do you think?
