Gigan (G-06)

Gigan (G-06)

This Bandai Gigan is the sixth of the multi-figure Godzilla Island Series, and one of the more interesting, as it varies from the standard issue by Bandai from 1989, most obviously in the base color, which on the G Island Gigan is a greyish blue, and the more elongated neck. Like all of the figures in the series, Gigan is smaller in scale than older versions, being approximately 6 inches in height, as opposed to the 8 inches of earlier incarnations. The figure is numbered in sequence with the entire Godzilla Island set, making him number 06 in the series.

All of the first 12 figures in the series have a similarly designed tag, showing characters from the Godzilla Island TV show on one side and an image of the daikaiju/mecha upon which the toy is based upon the other. The tag interior has text in Japanese and an image of the General(?) who is pictured on the back of the tag. Newer, Toho Kaiju Series tags have been seen for reissues of many of the first 12 figures as well. However, with the change in names of the series from Godzilla Island to Toho Kaiju in late 1998 with G-13, figures from the original 12 have started showing up with redesigned, Toho Kaiju Series tags similar to G-13 and beyond. The inside of the new tag is different as well.

Rereleased in 2001 as a part of the Movie Monsters series, Gigan sports a noticably different paint style, particularly in the addition of brighter highlighting, as well as sporting a new tag.
