Tamashii Nations Logo
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 1994

The first figure in the line, released in 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 however 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 MogeGoji costume that appears in Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla.

MechaGodzilla 1993

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. Also there was a Tamashii Web Exclusive accessory pack made 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 2. There is no second edition.


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


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 design 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.

Little Godzilla

Godzilla's adoptive son as seen in Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla. This figure was released 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 in 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 figure is based on Rodan's Fire Rodan design from Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla 2.

King Ghidorah

The King Ghidorah figure, released September 29, 2012, comes with three Gravity Beams. It is cautioned that his wings are on uncomfortably small ball joints that must be moved at their bases. It is based on the King Ghidorah suit from Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah.

Godzilla 1995

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

Comic-Con Explosion Godzilla

A figure made exclusively for San Diego Comic Con 2012, or SDCC 2012, Explosion Godzilla represents Burning Godzilla melting down at the climax of Godzilla vs. Destoroyah. It was released on July 12, 2012.

UX-01-92 Garuda

The Garuda was released in 2012, serving as its own product and 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 never reissued.

Destoroyah (Perfect Form)

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.
