Popy

In 1978 the Popy company acquired the Godzilla license and made their go at vinyl figures. However, while both the Marusan and Bullmark releases were very similar in style, Popy went in a new direction. Gone was the cartoony sculpting and bright colors, replaced by more serious features and darker colors. However, overall the figures remained highly stylized in comparison to their suitmation counterparts, and the colors themselves were still those of the rainbow. An example would be one of two variations of Baragon, presented in red and green.
