S.H. MonsterArts is a line of movie monster toys made by Tamashii Nations, the collector's division of Bandai, that began in November of 2011. This line has become highly popular among collectors due to the level of care and attention to detail on the figures, and their accuracy to their on-screen counterparts.

Main Line

These are the figures in the main S.H. MonsterArts line.

Godzilla

The first figure in the line, Godzilla was released on November 19, 2011. The figure's first edition came with a blue atomic breath effect and a radiation wave base for the breath effect, but the first edition was a limited edition and was quickly replaced with a second edition lacking accessories, and even came with a smaller box. It is based on the Godzilla suit used in Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla.

Mechagodzilla

Released December 3, 2011, Mechagodzilla was the second figure made in the line. It came with a mega-buster ray, an interchangeable plasma grenade lens, and optional flight parts. There was a Tamashii Web Exclusive accessory pack released that came with Garuda, shock anchors, and optional parts to attach Garuda to Mechagodzilla's back to form Super Mechagodzilla like in the 1993 film, Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II. There is no second edition of the figure, although a Super Mechagodzilla retool of the figure was later released.

SpaceGodzilla

The third S.H. MonsterArts figure, SpaceGodzilla was released on March 24, 2012. It came with an earthy base with crystals sprouting from it and a corona beam.

M.O.G.U.E.R.A.

The fourth S.H. MonsterArts figure, M.O.G.U.E.R.A. comes with four separate smoke trails, spiral grenade missiles, interchangeable flight mode parts, an interchangeable plasma Maser dish, interchangeable hands, a plasma Maser beam, and two city type bases for its effect parts. It is based on the 1994 version of the mecha from Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla. The U.S. release box reads "MOGUERA," with no periods in front of the letters and a "U," while the Japanese release box reads "M.O.G.E.R.A.," with periods in front of each letter and without a "U", due to the Japanese acronym for the mech's name simply being Mobile Operations Godzilla Expert Robot Aero-type. It was released on May 12, 2012.

LittleGodzilla

Representing Godzilla's adoptive son as seen in Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla, this figure was released on June 15, 2012. It comes with a crystal prison.

Godzilla Junior

Released December 14, 2012, as a Tamashii Web Store exclusive, this representation of Godzilla's adoptive son from Godzilla vs. Destoroyah comes with two helicopters.

Fire Rodan

Released on July 14, 2012, this figure comes with two exclusive stand bases, a perched stand, a flying stand, a Uranium Heat Beam, a red Spiral Heat Ray intended for the Heisei Godzilla figures, and a damaged Mechagodzilla head. This represets Rodan's Fire Rodan form from Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II. A prototype for a brown variant of the figure based on Rodan's normal form in the film was seen on display alongside the Mechagodzilla figure, but was never released.

King Ghidorah

The King Ghidorah figure, released September 29, 2012, comes with three gravity beams. It is cautioned that the figure's wings are on uncomfortably small ball joints that must be moved at their bases, presenting a strong risk for them being damaged. It is based on the Heisei King Ghidorah from Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah.

Godzilla (1995)

Released November 30, 2012, this figure has no effect parts, but comes with an MBT-92, a DAG-MB96, and an extra pair of hands. It is based on Burning Godzilla from Godzilla vs. Destoroyah.

Godzilla (Comic-Con Explosion)

A figure made exclusively for San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) 2012, Explosion Godzilla is a repaint of the Burning Godzilla figure representing Godzilla melting down at the climax of Godzilla vs. Destoroyah. It was released on July 12, 2012.

UX-01-92 Garuda

The Garuda figure was released in 2012, serving as its own product and a potential add-on for Mechagodzilla. It came with a base, laser effect parts, shock anchors, and pieces to combine with Mechagodzilla to form Super Mechagodzilla. It was released in 2012 and was not reissued until 2017, as an accessory for the Super Mechagodzilla figure.

Destoroyah (Perfect Form)

Representing the titular antagonist of Godzilla vs. Destoroyah in his demonic final form, this figure comes in a long box with no accessories. It was released on February 27, 2013.

Destoroyah Evolution Set

Released on July 31, 2013, the Destoroyah Evolution Set includes Destoroyah's juvenile, aggregate, and flying forms, as well as an alternate head for the aggregate form. The juvenile or "crab" form figure is noticeably inaccurate to the film, featuring crab-like claws on the front of its body and two spear-like claws extending from its back, features exclusive to the aggregate form. It is possible that this figure is meant to represent the multiple small aggregate Destoroyahs that attacked Godzilla in the film rather than the monster's juvenile forms.

Biollante

Representing Biollante's final form from Godzilla vs. Biollante, this figure was released in November 2013 in Japan, and December 15, 2013 in the U.S. Biollante comes with a multi-colored light-up chest. Biollante's box is a solid cardboard box similar to Godzilla 1964's box, and she comes with no effect parts or accessories.

King Kong

This figure of King Kong is based on his incarnation from Peter Jackson's 2005 remake. It comes in a tall box with a tree branch, 3 pairs of hands, a stand and a hand with Ann Darrow. It was released on April 27, 2013, which was two months after Destoroyah.

Godzilla (1964)

Representing Godzilla's design from Mothra vs. Godzilla, this figure includes no accessories. It was released in August 2013.

Type-3 Kiryu

Representing Kiryu, the Millennium Mechagodzilla, from Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla, this figure includes a dark blue jet pack and wrist-mounted rail guns. It was released on September 14, 2013. Interchangeable shut-down and possessed head parts are included. The chest opens up to reveal the Absolute Zero Cannon inside.

Battra (Imago)

This figure of Battra's imago form from Godzilla vs. Mothra was released on December 27, 2013. It comes with a stand.

Godzilla 2000 Millennium

A Godzilla 2000 figure was first seen at Summer Wonfest 2013. The accessories are once again omitted. Unlike the other Godzilla figures, this figure is not based on an actual design from a movie, but is instead based on Yuji Sakai's concept design for Godzilla in Godzilla 2000: Millennium. It was released December 28, 2013.

Mothra (Imago)

A Mothra imago figure was shown at Summer Wonfest 2013. It is based on the Heisei Mothra imago from Godzilla vs. Mothra. It was released on April 25, 2014. It came with a flying stand and baseplate.

The set containing Mothra and Battra's larval forms from Godzilla vs. Mothra was released in June 2014. Mothra comes with a piece of webbing.

Godzilla (2014)

It was remolded to include the triple Hyper Maser Cannon in its chest rather than the Absolute Zero Cannon. The chest flaps were also remolded to match this version of Kiryu. The right arm was changed to reveal gears and a different shoulder. It was given a new hand to make it look like it could become the drill.

Following the gimmick of the Tamashii MIX subline, the figure can split apart into multiple vehicles, as this version of Mechagodzilla did in an early draft of Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II.[17] The figure is scheduled for release in September 2017, alongside the S.H. MonsterArts Godzilla Poster Ver. figure.[14]

The figure will include a pack-in manga upon release, explaining its origin. The figure will be able to convert into three vehicles, the Garuda, the Gundalva, and the Naga. The figure will feature a flight stand for the Garuda. [18]

Hey there kaiju fans! This is Monsterland Buddies! You might remember me from your YouTube channel, where I post commments every now and then. I just joined Wikizilla today, and I am super proud to be proud of the Wikizilla team! But to the subject!

SH MonsterArts are repeatedly repainting monsters (mostly from the Heisei series), and it makes me sick! I keep getting the urge to kill the director of the figure line because he isn’t fit to direct, because he has a syndrome in the form of:

Overuse Of The Heisei Series

He is obsessed with the Heisei series, he didn’t even complete it’s kaiju roster! This is why the Heisei series is my least favourite series, Deathrock9 would be proud. However, this does not mean I hate the Heisei series. I want to give it a chance on the upcoming Godzilla marathon on my YouTube channel. But seriously, that is why I want to kill him. But I am afraid that’s not what he wants. I don’t want to be known as a murderer. People say Tamashii Nations isn’t making new figures and that they should. However, these people are couch potatoes who NEVER get up to do something simple! They can just go to Tamashii’s Facebook page, and ask for more monsters! Come on you guys, it’s not that hard! I don’t have a Facebook account, so other people should do it. It seems like I am the only one doing any hard work in this situation! I wrote essays worth of text and pasted it on the unofficial SH MonsterArts YouTube channel, so that the guy who owns that channel can contact Tamashii Nations and tell them everything I said.

I apologise for the rage, but come on. This needs to stop. If you agree with me, then go to Facebook and tell them to make more monsters. I would like to see Rodan (1993). They should use the colours used in the prototype they showed years ago. I would also like to see King Ghidorah (1998), Mothra Imago (2003/2004), Mothra Larva (2003), Anguirus (1968), Gigan (1972), and any other figure you can imagine. They can also make figures from other Toho movies, even movies from the King Kong and Gamera series. They have so much potential. They just need to unlock it. This year, is Tamashii’s time to shine!

I'm pretty sure they just make figures of the Heisei designs due to those designs being the most recognisable and therefore most marketable.

What? I never said in that comment that I wanted to commit murder. You can go there and see for yourself. I'll give you a link: https://www....=T4R6cufGyzs

And when I meant new figures, I also meant figures from previous movies like Kumonga, Kamacuras, Monster X, Keizer Ghidorah, Biollante (Rose form) and even monsters from non-Godzilla movies. Like Sanda, Gaira, Ganimes, Gezora and more. I also want accessories like the Super X, MOTHER, Type-90 Maser Cannons, the Old and New Gotengo, Karyu, Eclair, Rumbling, yeah you know.

Look. I have a Godzilla YouTube Show in the works. It's called Monsterland Buddies, an unofficial reboot of Monster Island Buddies. Monsterland Buddies is more serious and the monsters roar like the movies. I want to portray the kaiju using SH Monsterarts. But because Tamashii is barely making anything, I had to write that essay. At least they can release more new figures this year.

Listen. Everyone will get what they want eventually. In fact, I will list my opinions on the Heisei designs because Deathrock9 saying they are the most recognisable and most marketable.

Godzilla: One of my favourites, 84Goji is my favourite though because it is underrated. King Ghidorah: Originally my least favourite, it has worked it's way into my heart as one of my favourites, though the RaishuGhido deserves more love. Mothra: My least favourite. Both the larva and imago look absolutely ugly, especially the imago. The larva has a lack of undulation, the imago has immobile, chicken-like feet, and it's wings flap less gracefully due to being made with heavy cloth. The imago also looks like a plush toy due to very bright colours. These criticisms are taken from several Godzilla authors, who criticised these props, so they aren't from me, except for the "Both the larva and imago look absolutely ugly, especially the imago." part, which was my criticism. Rodan: My favourite Rodan design. The reason why is because it looks more pteranodon-like compared to the other designs. This design deserves a figure, not counting Fire Rodan. Mechagodzilla: One of my favourites. Though the head looks a bit weird, and his combat skills suck.

What do you guys think?

Look. Is anyone going to say anything or not? I just want new figures. And did you even read my comment on the unofficial SH MonsterArts channel? And why doesn’t anyone get notified when they receive a reply?

If all you want is new figures, then you should be patient and wait. I'm sure S.H. MonsterArts will get around to doing other characters some day. From a business point of view, it makes sense for them to make figures based on the more popular. They'll make a lot more money off of a figure based on the Heisei Mothra than they would if they were to produce a figure of the Showa Kamacuras. It's not as if they're the only company that makes Godzilla merchandise though.

Why are Tamashii Nations still making S.H MonsterArts Specials Colors instead of new figures with a different model?

Example: Gamera from the Showa Era, FinalGoji, KiryuGoji, Zilla (From Godzilla: Final Wars), Kamacuras, Kumonga, ect.

Pictures of the just released Shin Godzilla form set have started to appear and the figures are absolutely terrible! The paint is failing to stay on the figures and there are random red/brown dots all over on some figures. The 3rd form figure is an absolute eye sore and has been dubbed by some fans "Teriyaki-Zilla." There has even been rumors that Tamashii will release re-paints of the set.

I'm not anywhere near an expert on the line, but from what I can tell, you're unlikely to find any figure much cheaper than $60. (Unless it's a small character like Little Godzilla.)

No where has them for cheap unless they are broken or if it's just an accessory piece or the box (or if it's a special effect pack). The older figures are usually going for prices in the $170-$500 range. More recent figures go in the $60-$90 range (exception being the Shin Godzilla figure). And the Tamashii Mix mechagodzilla will be selling in the U.S. at a list price of $174.99. The upcoming Battra and Mothra sets will be in the $130 range.

Also this line doesn't seem worth the money anymore as they are obsessed with repaints and are extremely overpriced. Also a lot of the recent figures have had downright sloppy paint jobs and certain joints don't stay attached to figure and usually fall off soon as you open the box.

I really want those Shingoji figures. I have had my eyes on SHMA videos and these seem like the best choice. My only issue with the images we have is that Kamata Kuns articulated body sections in most pictures look disconnected and you can see their joints if you look closely. I am also not a big fan of the paint job on him. From afar it looks amazing but once you take a step closer it looks horrible. His evolved form has this problem on a smaller level. Shingoji only has this as a minor issue depending on how you look at him and where the joints are bending.
