Well, today the one I ordered finally arrived and BEHOLD!!!
As I've made frequent mention of in past blogs, the Japanese have a VAST love of the natural world and have made MANY toy series which depict various members from different habitats. This post from my trip to Japan shows several of these different types.. deep-sea, fossils, etc.
But there's a BUNCH of them that depict kaiju from Japanese Science Fiction!! There are a surprisingly large number of them.. So here's my excuse to show some of them!
Remember when I reviewed starfish monsters in Japanese science fiction? (here)
One of my favorites: Purple Starfish! (from the show Kikaider) who projects the deadly Starfish Sparkler!
A miscellaneous assortment of the Ultraman kaiju Pestar!!
