Mothra (Adult, Post-Heisei) 2001

Mothra (Adult, Post-Heisei) 2001

Bandai released this figure in 2001. It's an important figure as it hails the return of the 8 inch scale to Bandai figures as opposed to the 6 inch sizing employed in previous years. Yet the tag is very much like the other, 6 inch, figures in the Movie Monsters series. This Mothra also differs from earlier 8 inch versions of the figure in that the wings are more like the thick, soft vinyl of the Toho Kaiju Series Mothra than the hard, translucent vinyl of earlier, 8 inch figures. Also, the figure comes with an attached tag and is unboxed, again more like the recent, smaller Mothra.

Following in their tradition of producing translucent theater-exclusive figures, Bandai outdid themselves by producing a whopping four different ones for the GMK film, one of each kaiju appearing. The Mothra exclusive is translucent blue in appearance and has glitter mixed into the mold.
