Another 5 Points box set? Yup! This time Mezco is bringing us two legendary monsters, Godzilla and King Ghidorah. This boxset is based on the 1991 Kazuki Ōmori picture Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah. The Limited Edition Radioactive Battle Box comes with both previously mentioned kaiju molded in translucent “radioactive green” and “atomic amber.”
Each figure will have five points of articulation, but it’s hard to tell where those points are on King Ghidorah. I think all three heads move as well as both legs. That counts as five to me. On the other hand, Godzilla has the expected articulating limbs: head, arms, and legs.
Usually, these 5 Points figures are 3.75″ or thereabout, but I think Ghidorah may exceed that height a bit. Regardless, you’re getting two awesome-looking monsters for $50. Sadly, neither creature glows in the dark. Expect the box set to ship between August and September.
5 Points XL Godzilla vs King Ghidorah Limited Edition Radioactive Battle Box! A limited edition boxed set that can barely contain this monstrous melee! Godzilla in a clear, radioactive green color and King Ghidorah in a translucent, atomic amber color! It’s a no-holds-barred brawl of seismic scale! The 5 Points XL Godzilla vs King Ghidorah (1991) Boxed Set is packaged in a collector-friendly box, designed with collectors in mind.
This film marked King Ghidorah’s first appearance in the Heisei era of Godzilla films. The Golden King’s origin story was reworked for the 1991 film, but it also gave us Mecha-King Ghidorah. I’ll take a little retconning if it means more mecha-kaiju! During this era, Ghidorah would undergo more changes to his history, but the character’s design remained primarily intact.
Which version of Ghidhorah is your favorite? Should Mezco continue to make more of these 5 Point box sets based on classic Toho movies? Let us know your thoughts below.
