Set to feature a whole host of full-size figures and playsets, each will pay homage to a particular film, series or theme, whilst also helping to expand the deep alt-narrative planned for the many locations and characters in-store. The first set – Gargamon Vs Baraton – has its roots dug firm in Toho’s Frankenstein CtW and follow-up, War of the Gargantuas, featuring a similar heart (the playsets shell), caveman-like character and kaiju, all set against a post-war landscape in a Mighty Max-style format.
- The Playset: Kaiju Battleground Ep1 features a 3 part design complete with removable lid plus 2 micros, coming cast in a flesh tone Japanese soft vinyl and treated to various sprays, brush detailing and extensive flocking, all sealed with a super-smooth satin gloss. Sculpts courtesy of Kto Kto, paint/prototyping, ShinGangu.
- Extras: Each playset comes complete with a number of extras, including a magnetic boat omake that can be held by Gargamon, a seal sticker pack, pin and coloring book that details the origins of KB.
