Gamera Gashapon Figures by Konami*

Since his 1965 film debut, Japan's giant flying turtle Gamera has been a monster movie fan favorite second only in popularity to Godzilla. In the US during the 1970s, Gamera flicks often provided Saturday matinee "creature feature" fare for kids across the country. In recognition of 40-plus years of such monster mashing mayhem, Konami Toys has made kawaii (cute) 3" versions of Gamera and four of his best known bad guys. Choose between Gamera, Guiron, Viras, Zigra and Gyaos. Get 'em from fine vinyl vendors like destructiontoys.com!
