Hey kids, there'll also be a massive 500mm cold-cast statue replica version of the Giant God Warrior (costing an equally massive 48000円) and three different, smaller vignette statues made in collaboration with Kaiyodo.



Take your pick, they're all epic.


It's also worth mentioning that the God Warriors were inspiration for the man-made gods from Anno's Neon Genesis Evangelion, and you can certainly draw distinctions from these statues and the beasts suppressed by their outer armor in the anime.

Yeah, I was about to say, why does this guy look familiar? (I mean besides from the Nausicaa movie).
It looks really creepy but cool. The miniature set for this short looks amazing! You can tell they put a lot of love and time into making it. Also, looks like it is in present day, so as a Nausicaa prequel? That's cool

Would love to visit that museum, if I could. The 50cm God Warrior figure looks very impressive. Shocked
