The Top 20 Greatest Bandai Godzilla Figures
15: Godzilla 92
At the time, Bandai's Godzilla 92 was and still is a great looking figure; unfortunately this mold was used for several reissues, especially for the six inch line. It is well expected that Bandai prefers this vinyl representation as the look for the Heisei Godzilla. It’s still not to deny that the Godzilla 92 version is the best of the bunch. Made in hard vinyl with Ivory used for the eyes and teeth helps the face stand out better than the later reissues. The Silver highlights used for the spines are just as attractive. While there are three versions of the Standard Godzilla 92, there are six versions of the six inch Heisei Godzilla. The first version of the Standard Godzilla 92 is the more desirable figure while version six is the more attractive figure of the six inch series.
14: Toy’s Dream Project Godzilla 2004
2004 saw the Godzilla suit from the previous year slightly modified for “Godzilla, Tokyo S.O.S.” While Bandai was able to use most of the molds used for the 2003 figure, they did sculpt a new head. Featuring a “closed mouth” this is only the second Godzilla figure Bandai has done this for at that time. Another noticeable feature is the “battle scar” found on the chest. This marks the first Godzilla Bandai figure ever to sport any kind of battle damage making this figure most unique. Later reissued as a Toy’s Dream Project Exclusive, the spines are painted to give that power up look that Godzilla is going to fire its ray. A more attractive look than when compared to the first issue
13. Godzilla 84
1984 saw Bandai produce a Godzilla 84. It was a decent attempt back when Bandai first started making Godzilla toys, but what a difference 20 years makes. For the Godzilla 50th Anniversary Memorial Box, Bandai produced a stunning and very accurate Godzilla 84. Even critics of the 84 suit admit this is just a great figure and a major improvement over the figure released in 1984.
12: Godzilla 68
For the Godzilla 50th Anniversary Memorial Box, Bandai gave what collectors have been dreaming for years, a Godzilla 68 figure. Bandai produced a very accurate and detailed figure that nicely fits in scale with Bandai’s standard original King Ghidrah. Some collectors have mentioned this figure was the main reason for buying the 50th Anniversary Memorial Box.
11: Great Monster Series Godzilla 64
1984 saw Bandai’s produce its first ever Large Scale Godzilla and probably one of the most recognizable Godzilla toys ever. Standing at a near 20 inches tall, this figure is an instant attention grabber in any collection. Reissued in 1988 with enough differences to tell the two apart and also released as the limited and rare Bronze Godzilla. Even bootlegs have been found of this figure. The first issue is the most visual appealing, but you can’t go wrong with the 88 reissue if you just want a really large Godzilla in your collection.
