Mondo Reveals New Godzilla Posters and Jet Jaguar Vinyl Figure [Exclusive]
Jet Jaguar isn’t exclusively a TOHO creation – it’s the result of a contest the company held in 1972, in which “Godzilla” fans were asked to nominate a new hero for the company to use at the screen. The contest winner looked like a mix between Ultraman and Mazinger Z, and the altered result was Jet Jaguar, who later starred in “Godzilla vs. Megalon.”
Mondo has unveiled the first of a new line of Jet Jaguar collectibles: a soft vinyl figure filled with the mecha hero’s full costume, including the spotlights in his eyes that can blind an opponent if necessary. Check out the figure’s description, along with some stills of the collectible below:
“This soft vinyl figure is the first in our line of JET JAGUAR collectibles, featuring a colorway inspired by the seminal GODZILLA VS. MEGALON. Beautifully designed by Rocom, sculpted by Tufan Sezer and painted by Hector Arce, this is a figure that no Toho fans will want to miss our show. Clear your shelf and let JET JAGUAR land!”
The details on the soft vinyl are superb and the retro-style packaging, by Rocom and Mike Bonanno, is perfect. The figure stands 7.75 inches tall and is priced at $85. These will go on sale on Mondo’s online store tomorrow, April 7, 2022 (with delivery scheduled for August), so keep your eyes peeled.
