    Passion Tank Toys is new to the toy scene and at the time of writing recently have just debuted their detailed Shin Godzilla sculpts at Wonderfest 2019. These sculpts are fantastic. While I personally am not a fan of hyper realism in sofubi (I leave that style to S.H. Monsterarts and X Plus) I can't deny the skill behind these and can only dream of scoring a red blank :shock: Fingers crossed for many, many more releases by this highly talented brand!

    Same. Hyper-realism = action figure/action model.

    ...BUT these look very nice in sofubi form

    Are these sculpts of a Godzilla design from 2016? or were they released in 2016?

    These were sold at the most recent Wonfest this year. Shin Godzilla came out in 2016 (time flies I know!).

    Thanks for the info. My Godzilla game is not very strong.

    wish these shin godzillas werent all limited to one day WF licenses, it drives the price up so high making it virtually impossible to own

    Also not a fan of hyper-realism but the head and tail look great IMO.
    Looks like a very tactile sculpt that rewards running your fingers over it, kinda like Bemon and other sculpts.
    Any sense of the size?

    Honestly they’re not that hyper realistic. Yes they do have a lot of detail, but I wouldn’t say statue esque/garage kit kind of detail.

    I think they still hold true to the more classic side of soft vinyl. That’s just my opinion though. Absolutely love these that being said.. Hoping for more in the future and or a bigger run size, so that they are semi obtainable without the bonkers aftermarket price outs...

    It really does make a difference. The WF Sunguts Shin Goji are markedly cheaper online, and it's only the second run of those sculpts.

    Re: the sculpt, I love all the texture too and think the enlarged head helps deflect it from hyper-realism a bit. It's got a slightly super-deformed look I find really charming.

    I also dig this sculpt a lot...it kinda feels like Shin Goji filtered through a Valley of Gwangi T-rex lens.

    But yeah, the Y!J prices for this first run can suck it. Twice.

    Hope these will be obtainable at some point!

    Having this guy in hand, can confirm, he is just fantastic! Incredible sculpting yet again from Handsome Taro..

    I am quite partial to my Sunguts Shin, and he still remains my favorite. But this guy is right up there with him! Comparatively he's about the same height and scale, but a more slimed down, less chunky, hyper realistic counterpart.. ;)
