Monster Toy Spotlight #35 Mothra (adult, all series)

Postby canofhumdingers » Mon Aug 15, 2016 5:02 pm

This was a tough choice seeing as after 34 spotlights many of the monsters I have a toy of have already been covered. But there was one rather famous kaiju who remained conspicuously absent... Mothra! This thread will be for any and all adult Mothras. Showa, Heisei, millennium, bootleg.. You name it. If she's got wings, she's welcome.

I'll start with some various Bandai Millennium Mothras. 8 inch from final wars and high grade and 4 inch sofubi from Tokyo SOS.

And finally, the revoltech Showa Mothra. I was too lazy to move a bunch of stuff to get her out of the bookcase...

I've always like the somewhat rattier look of mothra '64 over the very groomed look of the '61. The '64 just looks more real or believable.

I think the "originality" factor of '61 gives it the edge over the '64 in my book, but all the enhancements and changes are welcome improvements (kind of like the transition between 74/75 MechaG)

Here's a little Iwakura mini repro

the ever so lovely M1.. the underside of the sculpt is equally detailed as the top, but criminally unpainted.

Mothra Adult and Larva Gashapon figure (Godzilla Chronicle High Grade Real Figure Set 2)
Image

DyDo Coffee Drink Mothra Larva SD figure. These were small toys that came included with DyDo Coffee cans (there was MG, KG, Godzilla, Minilla, and Mothra). The Mothra one is supposed to act as a business card (meishi) holder:

Added in 20 minutes 48 seconds:
I also have the Bandai GMK Mothra 8 inch figure, but I can't see to find any photos of it (it's back home in the USA, so I can't shoot any new photos of it). If anyone has this figure, please post some pics!

*Note* oops, just realized this is only for the Adult Mothra :oops:

One of the first figures I remember getting, and the only real Mothra I had as a kid:
Image
I still have the card, and it's so bent and mangled that it's not even funny.

I also had this one, which came with a GMK set (below). So I had a smaller Mothra and the Trendmasters worked well enough with my old Bandai figures. :D

Time for some vintage Mothra's love! 1966 red spray Marusan Mothra, Bullmark, and Bullmark Mothra Larva:

Has anyone been chosen for Monster Spotlight 36? Just had a box day and the Kaiju I got would be perfect for a Monster Spotlight.

Yeah I told ebirah I'd do the next one. Still trying to decide what Kaiju to pick. Deciding between Biollante, Battra, or the Godzilla kids.

Oh okay, no problem, my Kaiju was none of the three you mentioned, so all good. How about 37 then?
