S.H. MonsterArts debuts fully articulated 1996 Gamera

Gamera is definitely not like the other tortoises. First conceived of in 1965 by Daiei Motion Picture Company as an answer to Toho Studios’ Godzilla, Gamera has become a Japanese icon and representative of the “monster boom” of the 1960s. A prehistoric, shelled creature who feeds on petroleum products to be able to fly and breathe fire, Gamera is quite the creation.

Showcasing the aesthetic of the ’90s heisei series, this five-inch 1996 Gamera from Tamashii Nations’ S.H. MonsterArts line is a must-have. Featuring detailed articulation and design by kaiju sculptor Tomoo Haraguchi, Gamera is perfect for posing. This set comes with plasma effect parts with supports, a flying pose support piece, interchangeable flying appendage parts and a display base.
