|Above, yours truly with the Godzilla statue at Toho Studios in 2010.|
The closest I've ever gotten to a human-sized Godzilla was when I saw several filming & event suits. and the Godzilla statue at Toho Studios over the years.
Now, "true" Godzilla fans can own a human-sized Godzilla figure of their very own. The only problem is coming up with the money to buy one and where to put it.
Otaku USA has an article on the Godzilla figure.

Are you a Godzilla fan?
Okay, cool. But are you a big enough Godzilla fan to buy an incredibly expensive, human-size Godzilla figure?

First of all, I’m not sure where exactly I would put it, but more importantly, check out that price tag: ¥4,482,000. Four-point-four million yen. In U.S. dollars, that’s about $43,000 smackeroos.The figures are from Bandai and they are part of a new toy line called the Human Size Project. If some G-fan wants one, they'd probably better hurry up as the production run is limited to ten (10) figures and they stand 6' 3".
