1992 saw the return of one of Toho's most famous creations: Mothra. After more than two decades of retirement, the massive moth was brought back to the silver screen to face off with her old nemesis, the monster king himself, Godzilla.

Godzilla and Mothra

Now, this particular figure of the diety larva is six inches in length and made of vinyl. There's not much this figure can do at all, but its head can rotate if one ever feels the desire to have Godzilla break the Larva's neck.

Greatest Battle on Earth

Details wise, Mothra is a good representation of its movie inspiration. The base color is bronze with black highlights running the length of its body. The eyes are painted blue with the mouth and mandibles black. As for the mold of Mothra, it's a fine creation, then again, it'd be hard to screw up something as simplistic as a Mothra Larva.

Mothra is, and forever will be, one of Godzilla's greatest, most famous adversaries of all time. While I can't give an answer as to why the Imago Mothra, and both forms of Battra were never re-released, I can say this figure deserves a home in any fan's shelf, and the price tag isn't much of an issue. On a last note, Mothra is the second figure that falls under the Godzilla Island line of figures.
