"SHIN GODZILLA" STATIONARY MAQUETTE NO. 1 Model Displayed at Nico-Nico Super Conference!

August Ragone - 28 April, 2016 - 20:00
ニコニコ超会議、シン・ゴジラ1号雛型!


Maquette No. 1 on display at the Nico-Nico Conference this weekend.


First model produced for CG animators to render for the film.


This large-scale reference model is incredibly and infinitely detailed.


From this angle, this maquette is unmistakably classic Godzilla.


This production maquette also recalls the original 1954 creation.


Amazing detail on the classic-style Big G dorsal plates in this shot.


Fantastic shot of dorsal plates and tail reminiscent of Godzilla '54.


Does it seem that the tail's end is a fusion of marine life skeletons?

Double Trouble

Glyos Transmission Blog - 28 April, 2016 - 14:46
We are moving the new release to tomorrow night (Friday), April 29th at 9:30PM EDT.

PayPal just informed us that they are running some site maintenance and activating new updates/fixes tonight. Our apologies for the last minute shift of plans, but we aren't taking any chances with those guys while they mess around with their system. At least they let us know this time, which most likely saved all of us from a large helping of straight pain.

On the bright side, we can share more new builds with the extra day at our disposal.

Thank you for your patience!

Also, the third PVC color for this round is Crayhunter redorange (which is also one of the main paint accent colors on both the first Esedeth wave and this new one). This hue has really become an all time favorite around here and looks pretty good with almost any color combo, particularly black and warm gray.

More on that later.

SORRY, there isn't a new toy but we do have this strange post on the official Transformers facebook page featuring the base-former Fortress Maximus hoisting a pillow well above his head for scale or something. Whatever it is, it has caught the attention of Grimlock and Soundwave who look prepared to throw down on some pillow action too. In any event, good old Fort Max is welcome for sleepovers here are TFormers, any time!
