Godzilla Dydo Figure
Dydo can coffee had a tie-in with Toho Studios to produce a line of 5 Godzilla desktop figures. Mini-ra holds rubber bands, King Gidora holds MP3 player earbuds, Mecha Godzilla is a smartphone stand, and Caterpillar Mothra is a business card stand. The packaging is printed with sprocket holes along the edges to represent movie film.
Because these figures were sold along with the can coffee (130 yen), I was able to pick the one I wanted from the cooler case. I got Godzilla. He stands about 1" tall, and is maybe 2" tail to nose.
The paint job is pretty good, and G looks sullenly happy. The desktop versions of various figures seems to be catching on as a genre. I don't know if this is a good or a bad thing.
They're so cute when they're small.
