So I just upgraded from a Form 1+ to a Form 2, and, I have to say, it’s like night and day as far as user experience goes. I’ve been wanting to print this guy for awhile, but didn’t think the Form 1+ could handle it. Form 2 no issues. These are still work in progress as far as gluing, seaming, and painting. Also for the record, I didn’t model this.
Amazing detail…especially on the teeth! Superb job!
Thanks. Finding a proper orientation that didn’t require supports for the teeth was pretty tricky.
I’m a huge Godzilla fan. Have a ton of stuff, all the movies including the original Japanese version and a bunch of latex-skinned robotic Godzilla and related monsters, most of which I bought on multiple business trips to Japan (try bringing a 3’ tall robotic Godzilla home from Japan in your carry-on if you want to have a lot of fun with airport security).
I haven’t been a big fan of the new CGI “hyper real” Godzillas. They look great. But I grew up watching a man in a Godzilla suit. These new Godzillas just never look quite right to me.
It is a really nice print, though! Will look awesome once it’s painted.
I don’t know if you’ve already seen the latest movie, Shin Godzilla (aka Godzilla Resurgence). That’s a different Godzilla yet again. If you haven’t you might want to check that movie out.
@chris_ell. Can you post a link to the where you got the model? I’d love to give it a shot on my Form 1+.
Oh yes. I had to drive 50 miles to get to a theater that was showing it, but I saw it.
Was kind of disappointed in the film. But there is another new Godzilla film coming that’s supposed to be more “traditional”. We’ll see!
So how would you like to print a model of that last shot in the movie (the tip of the tail so to speak)?
@Randy_Cohen - I actually know exactly what RC Godzilla’s your talking about. I was gifted a non-working one by a friend that I restored the skin on. Agree on Shin Gojira - It has some awesome stuff, but quite a lot of not-so-awesome stuff too. I’m looking forward to the anime.
@Dudemeister - I actually got the model from a talented sculptor and can not share it. Sorry. You can see the rest of his work here: dopepope - Sketchfab . We have a symbiotic deal where for every model of his I print for me, I print something for him. Works out for everyone. So far I have printed the Female Muto, Battra, and the Thanos Bust from that page as well as the Albino Godzilla. Super great stuff.
Some pics. (These were from my Form 1+)
I’m watching “Godzilla vs. Megaguirus” on STARZsomethingorother right now!
