8. 1983 Bandai Godzilla 1962 (King-Goji). The first of the Bandai vinyl Godzilla toy line and based on the Showa-era Godzilla. Great Detail and 9 1/2″ tall and still within the budget of most Godzilla collectors.
13. 1983-84 Yamakatsu Godzilla vinyl figures. This is the complete set of 1983-84 Yamakatsu vinyl Godzilla figures — ranging from 2″ to 7″ tall. Great Showa style and detail. (Left to right: Mecha Kong, King Ghidorah, Silver Finned Godzilla, Gold Finned Godzilla, Baragon, Mecha Godzilla, Angillas, Mothra, Small Silver Godzilla, Small Gold Godzilla.)
II, Miniya (son of G), Rodan, and Varan Godzilla figures. Unlike the first batch of figures these are Godzilla's allies. These are testshots of the upcoming 6 inch soft vinyl Godzilla figures.
2. Vintage 1966 Marusan Godzilla kaiju figure. The first vinyl Godzilla toy figure to be made. Approx. 8″ tall, was reissued as early as 1970 and there are many variations. It also made a cameo in the 1969 “Godzilla’s Revenge” movie.
The paint is done well and like Tokyo Vinyl Mechagodzilla, is really simple. The teeth and claws are a nice whitish green color and they accentuate the figure well against the dark grey/green skin tone. There's a cool red gum line in the mouth that contrasts the teeth perfectly. The eyes are a mix of a black stripe pupil, green unpainted area surrounding the pupil, and an orange outer layer to simulate Godzilla's "fiery eyes" from the film. The middle row of the backplates are the only plates colored on the back of the figure with the rest of the plates being the same color as the body. They're a brilliant light blue color which really makes the figure stand out.
