I got a new member to my expanding "toy family" a few weeks back and I couldn't be happier. This is the HG toys Godzilla figure from their awesome "Godzilla Vs the Tricephalon" playset released in 1979. I saw it in the back of Famous Monsters magazine as a kid and knew one day I would own it, this Zilla is the closest I have come to that goal.
My first surprise is that he's "HUGE", I was expecting him to be in "Green Army man" type scale and he sort of is, as he towers over them just like Godzilla should.
See? He's awesome, the plane and frightened person are also from the set, I won those in another auction.
Just for scale, that's a Mexican Mego Superman next to him. This guy is one serious lump of plastic (and old school toy love).
One of these days boy....
