Rather than do a display of the realistic X-plus GTTHM Monster cast, I’m thinking about going for a stylized lineup instead. I’m already halfway there anyway since I’ve had the Gigabrain ‘64 Godzilla and Ghidorah for several years. I’ll need a Mothra larva, but between Marmit and Marusan, those don’t seem too hard to find. But here comes the request.
There is only one Rodan figure out there that will satisfy me for this display, and it is the Pilot Ace Rodan (I think it’s technically the ‘65 version of him, but in stylized form it looks close enough to the ‘64 suit. Certainly more accurate than any other stylized figure in this scale).
I’m keeping tabs on eBay and Mandarake, but does anyone have any other suggestions for places/dealers to seek out? I’d like to get him in some shade of orange or red if at all possible. Thanks for the help!
Are you trying to keep them all in scale? If not, the Bear Model yellow Rodan is nice and stylized. 5" high. Club Tokyo describes it as the original Rodan but I disagree. The face sculpt definitely has traits of the 60's version.
