The Top 20 Greatest Bandai Toho Figures
15: MechaGodzilla 93
Toho reinvented Mechagodzilla for the robots return in the film "Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla 93". Creating a new look, new powers, and instead of being used to destroy Japan, Mechagodzilla 93 defends Japan against Godzilla.
Bandai's representation of Mechagodzilla 93 is flawless and looks as it did in the film. Also reissued for the six inch series, yet the standard version is the most desired. It's just a shame a MechaGodzilla 93 with Garuda wasn't produced in vinyl form.
14: MechaGodzilla 2003
It seemed fitting that Toho would return Mechagodzilla to the big screen ten years later in "Godzilla X MechaGodzilla". Once again, MechaGodzilla 2003 was reinvented, but with the same purpose, defend Japan against Godzilla.
This time, Bandai created versions of MechaGodzilla with and without weapons. For the 2004 sequel "Godzilla, Tokyo S.O.S." MechaGodzilla was modified, yet allowed Bandai to reuse body parts of the previous 2003 figure to the new MechaGodzilla 2004. Several variations of MechaGodzilla 2003/2004 have been produced by Bandai, even in the six inch scale, making this figure the highest numbered figure released of Godzilla's foes.
13. Baragon 2002
Baragon 2002 has been a big favorite among collectors. It's only the second vinyl Baragon Bandai has ever produced and the new figure stayed faithful to the way the kaiju appeard in the film. A nice touch is added by the way the ears can be repositioned to somewhat change Baragon's facial expressions.
A true Bandai classic that has never been reissued or re-released. At the time, the only Gorosaurus figure available was the Marusan/Bullmark versions. While other toy companies have produced their versions of Gorosaurus, Bandai's version remains a favorite to Bandai collectors.
11: Mysterian's Mougera
Though Mougera was reinvented in the film "Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla" it was nice for Bandai to add the original Mougera to 1994's toy lineup. Never been reissued or re-released and can be a challenge to find a Mougera without its atteneas damaged.
