Godzilla Ring!

This Godzilla ring was probably some kind of vending machine prize!

  1. That's a new one to me. Where did you find it?

  2. Like all the photos here (unless otherwise specified), it was from an eBay auction I came across.

    It may have been an Argentina item, and not a USA or Japan item.

  3. These sort of rings and pendants have been around for the last 15 years or so, with all sorts of images in them (though I've mostly seen them with monsters or Bettie Page). I've got a scuffed up ring with Count Chocula in it in my desk drawer right now, and both this same Godzilla image and a Metaluna Mutant one as slightly larger pendant charms strung on fat ball-chain that came from the clearance rack at Claire's, of all places. This is just one of those sort of fake collectibles whose provenance is so vague that people assume they're a much bigger deal than they are... like those marbles with images (Roy Rogers, Batman, etc.) printed on them that have plagued flea market tables since the late '70s. I mean, they're nice enough, but still ultimately bootleg junk.
