Vault Review: Gigan
(Sci-Fi Revoltech #023)

Gigan’s got some really nice articulation. His lower jaw, head, neck, shoulders, upper elbow, lower elbow, hips, knees, ankles, and tail bone are all revolver joints. The two pinchers on his mouth are swivel joints and can open and close, while his entire tail has a bendable wire in it. With all these joints he has a great range of motion, especially in his neck and arms. And I really love the bendable tail Kaiyodo has given the last couple kaiju. It really goes a long way to giving a touch of realism to the figures.

Like all Sci-Fi Revoltech, Gigan comes with that little orange box and his nameplate. He also gets three pieces of an industrial complex to stomp around on. The buildings have a ton of sculpted detail and remind me of a computer chip with how busy they look. But they’ve all been colored in silver which makes them very plain and takes away some of the depth that gradients would have added. The tallest tower also has an alternate spire piece that is damaged, in case you wanted to have your Gigan do more than just stomp.

Gigan fits in with his kaiju brethren very nicely. He and Moguera are about the same height. This gives him a nice imposing look on the rest of monster heroes. It’s a real shame he won’t get to share the shelves with Godzilla though, or even his old buddy Megalon. These figures were starting to look really nice all posed together.

Gigan will run you about $30 since he’s an import. If you were just collecting the kaiju to get to Godzilla, then he might not be worth it to you at this point. But as a figure, he’s definitely worth it. If you’re a fan of the character or have been collecting the line, then I suggest you get him.
