Model Kits

Godzilla series model kits have been produced as far back as the mid 1960s, with the first plastic kits from Aurora. Generally, models can be divided into two categories, plastic and garage kits.

Plastic kits are the earliest produced of the two types, and are those that are generally collected for intrinsic value, as there have been kits produced by both Bullmark and Marusan among others. Plastic kits have been produced over many years, and come in many sizes. Some even glow in the dark. Garage kits first appeared in the early 80s, and are highly sought after by collectors due to their great detail and creative sculpting. Luckily for those without deep pockets, they have little secondary market value due to their generally being built up after purchase, as well as the popular ones being reissued numerous times.

Of all of the kits, the most highly sought-after are those in the Marusan Plamodel series. All are extremely rare, especially with the box. In fact, one could argue that the Plamodel kits are the rarest production Godzilla toys out there. If you find one, get it. Chances are you will never see one again.
