For glow in the dark fans here is the 2005 Popy Bullmark giant Godzilla with Tokyo Tower. Standing about 12 1/2 inches high and 12 inches long, this fantastic figure comes mint in bag with header. The glow that comes out of this guy is positively eerie. It is a must have for your collection.
This is the hard to find "OUT OF PRINT" Godzilla Toy History Book by Yuji Nishimura and Takashi Kuraji. Yuji Nishimura is not only the biggest collector of Godzilla items in the world but also the owner of M-1 toys in Japan. This is the ULTIMATE reference for Japanese Kaiju toys.
The book has wonderful photos of early tin and vinyl toys and models from Marusan, Bullmark, Popy and Bandai. Photos of R/C toys, wind up toys, and even shots of early toy making in Japan! If you are a serious collector of Kaiju Toys this book is a must have reference book.
Again, this book is way out of print and we were lucky enough to get our claws on a few. 110 pages, hard bound published by Bandai. Book dimensions 9 by 12 inches
This is the impressive book written by Yuji Nishimura and Takashi Kuragi detailing the history of Godzilla Toys in not only Japan but the world. This superb book serves as the go to reference for the earliest vinyl, tin and plastic model toys of the KING of THE MONSTERS and his associated friends and foes. The history of Bullmark and Marusan is displayed in fabulous comparison photos of the same figure produced by each company. The other historic companies such as Popy the precursor to Bandai and also the toys made by Yamakatsu Company are given good coverage. Yuji Nishimura the owner of M 1 Toys aka M Ichigo bought many of the original molds of the Bullmark soft vinyl line. This 111 page book is a must have for all collectors of Godzilla.
This is the VERY RARE ORIGINAL Godzilla 1964 from the Great Monster Series made in 1984. This was made when Bandai first took over the Popy Company in 1984. This version is much harder to find than the 1988 Great Monster. It stands approx.18 inches tall and 28 inches long. IMPRESSIVE!! The figure is articulated at the arms, legs and tail.
This figure would make a great centerpiece for any collection. This Original 1984 issue is almost IMPOSSIBLE to find even in Japan and finding one with an ORIGINAL box is almost a miracle! This figure comes Near Mint with original heavy plastic bag with C-7 condition Original Box! (Box stands 37 inches tall).
This is the hardest to find of the Yamakatsu figures: The Mecha Kong. Yamakatsu produced a series of Godzilla figures in 1983. These were more realistic looking than the Bullmark or Popy Figures. They were not issued with tags. However they were issued with a bandai sticker on their feet. This series of figures have a certain charm about them.
The Mechani Kong is the best sculpt in the series in our opinion. It stands about 5 inches tall and was produced by Yamakatsu in 1983. This one is in Excellent Condition. It does have some paint rubs and scuffs on its body. We have included a photo with the Larger Bandai 1991 Mechani Kong to show the differences in figures. The figure for sale is the Yamakatsu only.
In 1983 Bandai Co. of Japan purchased POPY Co. of Japan and began producing toys. The FIRST EVER GODZILLA FIGURE they produced was the RUBBER GODZILLA figure. The figure had a wire frame under the rubber sculpt of Godzilla. This figure is ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND EVEN IN JAPAN! The figure stands approx. 6 inches tall and is approx. 5 inches long. We have been HUNTING GODZILLA all over Japan for many years and we have only seen three of these figures TOTAL! What is even more impressive is THIS FIGURE IS Near MINT IN Excellent BOX!! The back of the box has the old Computer number that Bandai used for their early toys. Most people think that the Godzilla 1962 8 inch vinyl sculpt or the Great Monster Series Godzilla 1984 were the first Bandai Godzillas, but this little beauty was produced in early 1983! Because it is made of flexible rubber over a wire frame, it is not articulated. THIS WOULD MAKE AN IMPRESSIVE ADDITION TO ANY COLLECTION.

This impressive hard vinyl figure is sometimes called the "Fragile Wing King Ghidorah" because of the thin, brittle vinyl used to form the wings. The vinyl at the wing "tabs" where they fit on the body are especially prone to cracking. This is a very hard figure to find especially without damaged wings. IT IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND THIS FIGURE MINT IN BOX EVEN IN TOKYO JAPAN!!
It stands approx. 14 inches tall! The heads, necks and legs are articulated. Note the photos of the "wing tabs", this is where the figure gets it's nickname "FRAGILE WING KING GHIDORAH" These wings and for that matter the whole figure is MINT, MINT, MINT! IT COMES IN NEAR MINT CONDITION BOX! It even comes with the original instructions. We found this in a little shop on a toy hunt in the back alleys of Tokyo. THIS FIGURE IS PART OF THE "GREAT MONSTER" SERIES FROM BANDAI/POPY RELEASED IN 1984. It sometimes is called the 30th Anniversary King Ghidorah. The wings fit into the slots on the back of the body.
Due to the weight of the wings and the thin fragile vinyl of the wings, the tabs have a tendency (no kidding) to crack. Many collectors display this figure with the wings behind the body and not mounted in the slots to prevent cracking. THIS IS A PIECE OF BANDAI/POPY HISTORY AND WILL MAKE A STUNNING CENTERPIECE FOR ANY SERIOUS COLLECTOR.
CLAWMARK TOYS WARNING; COLLECTING KAIJU VINYL CAN BE ADDICTING! Scroll down to see additional photos.
JUMBOSAURUS! This is the ORIGINAL JAPANESE ACTION PACKED, PULL STRING ROARING Godzilla that was issued in 1978! This AMAZING VINTAGE GODZILLA is in MINT CONDITION!
Standing approx. 16 inches tall and approx. 16 inches long, this piece of GODZILLA HISTORY is articulated at the arms and legs with a little articulation at the neck. The feet have small wheels on the bottom so you can push the figure across the floor. HIS RIGHT FIST IS SPRING LOADED and can be 'Fired" by pushing the button on the arm. THE SPRING IS LIKE NEW! When you pull the ring on the back of his neck, it makes a GODZILLA ROAR AND SHRIEK!!
The paint on this vintage figure is MINT! The condition of the hard vinyl/plastic is MINT! WE BELIEVE THAT THIS JAPANESE SCULPT IS MUCH, MUCH MORE IMPRESSIVE THAN THE AMERICAN MADE SHOGAN WARRIOR. His tail must be put into place using a hair dryer to make it go on more easily. The Box is in C-7 condition and shows much wear. It is almost impossible to find this figure at all (even in Tokyo) let alone with a box! THIS IS ONE OF THE RAREST OF OLD JAPANESE GODZILLA ACTION TOYS. Comes with reproduction instruction sheet.
