King Ghidorah (Showa)

King Ghidorah (Showa)

This Ghidorah was made by Marmit in 1998. All three heads move as one, and each neck can also pivot separately. The figure came with a bag and a header card, and is stamped on the feet.

The standard release, pictured above, is orange with silver and white highlights. The blue version is based upon the original concept for Ghidorah, wherein he was much more brightly colored.

In 2001 Marmit released an exclusive set of five Vinyl Paradise figures for the Chiller Theater Horror and Sci Fi Convention in New Jersey. Produced for the U.S. market and limited to only 100 pieces, the figures have new paint styles and mold colors. The figures in the set include Godzilla '68, King Ghidorah, MechaGodzilla I, Gigan, and Hedorah (Flying). The header cards are stamped 2001 in red and are a similar style as that of the Vinyl Para Baby series. Unlike the earlier San Diego ComiCon exclusive set, these do not bear the name of the convention on them.

The Chiller variation of Ghidorah is molded in burgundy with gold, navy, and silver highlighting.
