Video of a Japanese fan showing his huge collection of Godzilla related figures. Not everyone’s cup of tea, skip this if kaiju is not your interest =)
Godzilla: High Grade
Bandai produce the toy line in Japan since 1994. The plastic models are about two inches tall and may need some assembling. There are sold by Gashapon, aka capsule toy vending machines which are commonly seen in Japan.
Bandai usually release a new set when there’s a new Godzilla film in town. Besides the main character, the collection also includes other monsters in the franchise.
Unless things have changed, the Gashapon usually dispense an item by luck. Each machine usually has its specific theme but you cannot control what you get.
In addition, some items are very rare. It requires real dedication – either by sheer numbers or trading with other people – to get such a huge collection.
