Mochiin Designs hits the G-spot...
Whoever attended Wonderfest 2008 won't likely forget the one of a kind sculpture of an engorged and suspicious Godzilla hunched over the dislocated corpse of King Kong that proudly sat in the contest section of the convention center. BAM...there it was. Visceral and in your fucking FACE! Not only had Godzilla violently mutilated King Kong, she was eating the bastard, too! Sculpted and painted, courtesy of one, Moses D. Jaen.
Since then, Moses has haphazardly proven himself to have a true penchant for the putrescent, having released some of the most revolting zombie kits the hobby has ever seen as sculptor and producer of his Garage Kit outfit, Mochiin Designs. But in 2009, Mr. Jaen, again, hearkened unto his Kaiju kinship to release an exclusive piece for the 2009 Wonderfest convention, a two piece resin bust of the Mother of all Monsters, Godzilla.
The entire display is roughly 8" tall, and is cast, (wonderfully at that), in light gray resin. Moses sculpted her with all the rigid, rough textures, shard-like dorsal spikes, and feline facial features that are common to most Godzilla sculptures, but one can clearly see the Moses Mojo imbued in it's design. Godzilla herself locks into the top of the base, which was fashioned to resemble crumbled masonry, with lots of cool organic textures, and Japanese characters that read ' Godzilla'. The entire display is roughly 8" tall.
Glad I snagged one of these up from Moses before they totally disappeared. To see more of Moses' work, check out his website (and harass him about releasing another full-figure Godzilla piece!)
