Pulgasari Figure 1998 Gold Rare Marmit Mint
Here is one of the hardest to find Marmit Vinyl Paradise Figures. This is a Theater exclusive figure which was ONLY available at some of the movie theaters in Japan showing the 1985 South Korean Film Pulgasari. Pulgasari was made in 3 color variations by Marmit in 1998. The figure has been out of production since 1998. It was produced in limited numbers. The beautiful golden color is the most limited and hardest to find.
The figure is mint and is numbered VP 65. Does not come with header or bag. It is made of hard vinyl and stands approximately 10 1/2 inches. The movie which was banned in North Korea tells the story of a peasant uprising in Feudal Korea. The king wishes to limit weapon making so he steals all iron and cooking pots. He imprisions a blacksmith who dies. Before he dies he make a small monster figure Pulgsari. Pulgasari comes to life and grows when the blacksmith’s daughter pricks her finger and blood drips on the figure. Monster Mayhem ensues.
Kenpachiro Satsuma who played Godzilla in most of the 1980-1990’s Godzilla movies plays Pulgasari. Other Toho Film personnel were involved in the making of the movie.
