First Godzilla 2014 Action Figures and Monster Opponent's Name Revealed

Godzilla 2014 Insect Monster Foe Sketches

Attention!! There are now at least 4 new Godzilla 2014 action figures and toys now available for pre-order from Urban-collector. And not only that, but the name of Godzilla's monster opponent was revealed in the description...Muto!

Here's the description of the Deluxe "Destruction Pack"(sorry, no pictures, yet):

Godzilla 2014 Movie Deluxe Destruction Pack Case is an Urban Collector pre-order. Bring the excitement of Legendary Pictures' Godzilla home with this deluxe 'Destruction Pack' featuring figures of Godzilla and the exclusive 8-legged Muto measuring 3.5'. Set includes two kaiju, plus three (3) destructible buildings & bridge, and five (5) military vehicles. Widnow box packaging.

This matches up with the monster described in the Comic-Con Trailer. A giant, spider like creature attacks an airport, shortly before Godzilla's foot comes crashing down. Godzilla dwarfs the other creature in size. Later an attendee to the Comic-Con sketched this picture above of the creature now known as Muto. It brings to mind Godzilla's old foe from the 60's, the giant spider monster, Speega or more correctly, Kumonga(kumo is Japanese for spider). Kumunga was one of Godzilla's most impressive and terrifying opponents. I'm sure the new kaiju will be even more so.

This Muto is different from the much larger, multi-legged kaiju carcass briefly seen in the leaked Godzilla 2014 teaser trailer. That trailer was from the Comic-Con last year and was soon removed from the Internet. Because of the legs, some described it as a giant centipede like monster, while recently some say it more resembles a mutated giant isopod or sea louse. We know of at least two of Godzilla's monster foes. Are these two creatures somehow related?

Honestly, I'm not so impressed with the name "Muto". It's probably short for "mutation". To me it sounds more like the name of a breath mint or a Hispanic rock band. In Japanese when talking about coffee, "muto" means sugar-free. Anyway, it's news and I'm sure the monsters themselves will be impressive. Visit Urban Collector through the link above to place your pre-orders. The toys should be available around March 2014, 2 months earlier than the movie's release.
