Exclusive Crystal Clear Gamera 99 w/ Gyaos


Labeled on the packaging as a "Special Limited Edition", this Exclusive Crystal Clear version of Gamera 99 and Gyaos was a "Giveaway" item to employees of a Japanese magazine. The Daiei license sticker is also absent from the packaging. A red translucent hand is included.

Limited Version "Promotional" Irys


A new set labeled as "The Limited Version", Kaiyodo Xebec re-released Gamera 99, Gyaos, and Irys as "Promotional" items that included a free movie ticket to the film "Gamera III, Gamera vs. Irys" inside the packaging.

Kaiyodo Xebec's Limited Version Irys does not appear to be a paint variant when compared to the first issue. Unfortunately, I have no reference to the Limited Version Gamera 99 and Gyaos with Promotional Free Movie ticket, but a Gamera 99 and Gyaos version was released.

Exclusive Laser Disc Release Gamera 99 w/ Gyaos


For the release of the film "Gamera III, Gamera vs. Irys" to Laser Disc (remember those?) Kaiyodo Xebec produced an exclusive set to tie in to the Laser Disc release. Gamera sports a bright yellow painted burning hand, while the extra hand is a regular painted version. Gyaos is a metallic greyish blue version.

Limited Edition Translucent Purple Gamera 99 w/ Translucent Red Gyaos


Labeled as a "Special Limited Edition", I'm unfamiliar with what event this set was released for. Gamera is a Translucent Purple material and the extra hand is the same purple style. There are two versions of this set with the difference being a translucent red or blue Gyaos.

The last known Gamera variant released by Kaiyodo Xebec is a Translucent Green Gamera 99 w/ Gyaos. Labeled as a "Special Limited Edition", I believe this variant was produced to tie in to the release of the film "Gamera III, Gamera vs. Irys" on VHS (remember those?). Of all the variants listed, this Translucent Green version has been the hardest to find and seems to be the highest priced.

The last item is a multiple of Gyaos, bagged with a header card. Listed on the header card as a "Limited Edition", There are four brown and blue versions of Gyaos with one greenish glow version.

I'll continue to keep a look out for other possible Kaiyodo Xebec Gamera 99, Gyaos, and Irys figures and try to obtain those I don't have for future updates.
