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.
