i find it interesting that Japan did not merchandize Godzilla figures until after we did! the Aurora Godzilla's sales encouraged them to finally do so.ReplyDelete
I did not know that, Professor! Thanks for sharing that bit of info!ReplyDelete
It isn't too clear in the box shown, but artist Jim Bama seemed unsure how to taper off or end Godzilla's tail, so it turns into a small wormy thing at its end, instead of the blunted "weapon" it was on screen (and even on the model itself).ReplyDelete
Well, I suppose Bama couldn't be great at everything he painted! (I still love his Doc Savage covers)ReplyDelete
Prof. is right, there were only a couple of Japanese toys (and several books) before the Aurora model, but this model is definitely a re-issue and not the Aurora original.ReplyDelete
Hopefully the original will show up here sometime soon!ReplyDelete
