Gigan (ガイガン Gaigan?) is a kaiju (Japanese giant monster) from the Godzilla series, introduced in the 1972 film Godzilla vs. Gigan. Gigan is a cybernetic monster sporting a buzzsaw weapon in its frontal abdominal region and large metallic hooks for hands. Gigan is considered Godzilla's most brutal and violent opponent, alongside Destroyah, both of which were easily able to severely injure Godzilla.

This toy is from Kaiyodo and the Revoltech line. It comes in a nice box that folds open with background information (too bad I can't read it!), and a safe plastic tray.
You do have to remove some limbs to take it out of the protective plastic.
Has normal Revoltech coin and case.
Gigan has a great look, with arms that swivel, and an imposing body
Warning He may want to kill Godzilla this much... and need a hug from you this much...
I liked posing him from on top of his "tippy" rotatable tail and toes... to making "friends" with a TAB.
The back fins are rubber; look at the nice detailing.
He is all Revoltech construction and joints, so he can pop apart with no damage or worries!
The set comes with a a little plaque and oil refinery set, with interchangeable straight or "Damaged" pole.
The face and pincers are, intricate, movable, and cool.
The buzz saw looks great, but alas does not spin...
Overall a nice rendition of this famous Godzilla foe and for around 30 bucks what is not to love...
You can pick yours up at our friends at HobbyLink Japan
