Mothra (Larva, Heisei)

Mothra (Larva, Heisei)

This particular version of the Mothra Larva was issued by Bandai in 1992, and represents the Heisei version of the kaiju. This is one of the more difficult-to-find bandai figures.

At first glance, the figure closely resembles the '84 Mothra Larva or the 1991 Mothra Larva, but there are several differences. Firstly, and most obviously, are the small feelers/legs that protrude from beneath the raised portion of thew '92 larva. These are not visible on any other issue. Both the shape and size of the body are different, with the '92 larva being both smaller and more linear. The tail is also molded differently, with a vertical spine. The paint differences are also very evident, especially between the '84 and '92 versions.

In addition, the '91 Larva tag shows an image of the monster in action, while the tag for the '92 larva, above, shows the images from the one-sheet for the Heisei Godzilla v. Mothra film. The reverse of both tags has text and logos. The '84 Larva comes boxed, and is made of rubber instead of vinyl.
