The seller simply listed it as "Godzilla Toy", and I doubt they had any idea what this was/how rare it is. I actually don't know for certain that it is rare per say, but I swear I never see it on eBay and when I do its always in the $100-200 range.
Might be a bootleg. The original didn't have pupils and the plastic looks different.
I can't definitively say about the plastic till I have it in hand, but 9 times out of 10 its just bad lighting that makes it look weird.
I can however say that the original DID indeed have pupils. Another seller on eBay has one mint in box and it does have pupils.

Do remember that this is the 10 inch figure, not the 6 inch. The 6 inch doesn't have pupils.

Think ya missquoted lol. I just found em on ebay. Not overly happy with spending about $15 per though, lol. Dude has a bunch of them up on his store though. I'm not big into chibis though, but I never saw these three on their own before.

Not sure if this is the right thread for this, but here's my progress on my first kit.

Hope to finish him this weekend. Didn't mean to make him so green, I tried to do an oil wash but I didn't do it correctly. He was left green and I just kept him this way. Next up is BioGoji.

I actually really like the green. Reminds me of the Memorial Box figures.

Scored these for $38. Also came with two partially destroyed Ghidorah and Destroyah figures, but I only cared about these ones since I dont have em.

Pulled the trigger on the SHMA Godzilla and Kong. Praying I can keep money in my account for when the pre-order ends and the charge hits! I haven't been this jazzed for SH figures since... KingGoji? KotM Rodan?

Got the Bandai Hedorah for roughly $80, about as much I am willing to pay for such a small figure. I considered getting the ymsf figure instead but its massively more expensive for something only JUST SLIGHTLY larger.
Image

Also got the NYCC Godzilla 2014 from Bandai America, mint in box (Im gonna open it, sorry not sorry)
Meaning I have every version of Godzilla 2014 from Bandai America that matters, skreeonk those stupid gimmick figures.
Image

Aside from that, I had my regular ebay seller Rip City Kaiju reserve some figures for me that I will be getting within the next three weeks.
First is the YMSF Megalon, since I REALLY want to have as many Showa kaiju as possible
Image

And to go with my cretaceous king ghidorah, he reserved the modern King Ghidorah from Rebirth of Mothra III (I havent seen any of the RoM films, hope they are good)
Honestly, my new favorite version of KG. GMK is still a close second.
Image

Im still looking for the original bandai showa king ghidorah. I also want the original King Caesar, Minya, and Mechagodzilla for my showa shelf before Im satisfied.

They’re not.

But King Ghidorah in RoM3 is still awesome. Nice pickup! :KingGhidorah64:

LMAO. Well, ultimately, everyone told me that Son of Godzilla, Godzilla vs the Sea Monster, and Godzilla vs Gigan were bad movies, and they ended up being my favorite Showa films, so I'll probably end up enjoying them anyway XD

I dunno man, I love all three of those Godzilla films too (especially Sea Monster!). The ROM trilogy is on a whole other level of cringe-inducing terribleness. They feel more like really crappy Saturday morning kids tv shows than actual movies. But I still watch them on rare occasion so I guess they’re tolerable? And Grand King Ghidorah alone is worth sitting thru the third film for.
