As you may or may not know, the original Godzilla sculpt is my albatross. I have spent more time obsessing over this stupid toy than just about any other. It is sort of the alpha of Japanese toys for me. I think I have about 20 variations from over the years. Anyways, the first two iterations of the figure are mythical mostly and not really known to exist. The original blue vinyl (samples?) had a steep J shaped tail, and the second edition was made in light green vinyl, painted with dark green paint and metallic blue paint. All other Marusan/Bullmark Godzilla figures (with a couple minor exceptions) are in some sort of shade of dark blueish-green. These two original Marusan Godzilla figures were made at the same time as the original UltraQ figures in 1966, and the green second editions are supposedly editions of 500 made in 1966. Needless to say, there are only a couple known to exist. (check out that double SAN foot stamp on light green. Rad.) Anyways, when the rubber hits the road, I dumped a brick of toys and then jumped in to snatch up one more mythical toy off of the checklist. Granted, I know no one else I know will ever appreciate it, heck, even some of those that do wouldn't jump in on this figure but I still can't believe I have one. To call this a "grail" figure is an understatement. Awesome.
