Godzilla 50th Anniversary Memorial Box
The Godzilla 50th Anniversary Memorial Box is a box-set of 20 6-inch Godzilla figures by Bandai Japan. It was released in January 2005.


To celebrate Godzilla's 50th Anniversary, Bandai Japan produced Godzilla 1955, Godzilla 1962, Godzilla 1964, Godzilla 1965, Godzilla 1967, Godzilla 1968 and Godzilla 1984.

This box set also features reissues of Godzilla 1954, Godzillasaurus (who was originally a part of the standard 8-inch line), King Ghidorah, Heisei Godzilla and Godzilla Junior from the Movie Monster Series, although their size and paint schemes are no different from previous lines.

Anguirus, Gigan, Godzilla 1974, MechaGodzilla 1975, Fire Rodan, Burning Godzilla and Godzilla 1999 were also reissued from both the Movie Monster and Toho Kaiju series. However, the way they're done are different from the other five reissues.

Anguirus and Gigan were given new paint schemes, Anguirus is done in gray vinyl with black highlights and Gigan is done in black vinyl.

Godzilla 1974 is given two different sculpts, one in which it had an arm exposing metal underneath which is based on Fake Godzilla from Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla film and one in a new green vinyl with and a more ferocious face which is based on Godzilla 1975 from Terror of MechaGodzilla.

Like Gigan, MechaGodzilla 1975 is done in black vinyl, with glossy black paint on various parts of the body, blue paint on the initials, orange for the number and the eyes and gold on the front.

Fire Rodan is done in brown vinyl with beige highlights, therefore the figure is based on the regular version of the Heisei Rodan from Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla 2.

Burning Godzilla is done in red vinyl with orange highlights. Supposedly, it is based on Godzilla from the end of the 1995 film, Godzilla vs. Destoroyah, in which Godzilla melts down.

Godzilla 1999 is, not only given a new paint scheme, but is also rescaled. The figure is done in dark green vinyl with light green highlights and rose dorsal plates, whereas the Toho Kaiju Series Godzilla 1999 was done in black vinyl with purple dorsal plates. It is based on Godzilla 2000 from the 2000 film, Godzilla vs. Megaguirus.
