Review by JoshB
This Gamera toy was made by a company called Rocket Pro. Released in Japan, it
was a crane game prize, meaning you had to play a game of skill to win one. Fans
unlucky at those games could also go to their local store and pay an
inflated price for one.
The paintjob on this is exquisite. it features a level of detail that I have
never seen on a vinyl figure. it looks so alive that you almost think it is
going to reach out and bite you. At 12" tall, Gamera is an imposing figure.
As good as it looks though, it has absolutely no play value. It has no articulation
whatsoever. The tail is removable, and falls off with handling. Still, it
looks great on the shelf. A must-have for any Gamera Fan.
