Kaiju Press Conference Keychains!

Toho Monsters make a rare appearance before the press in a unique series of mini figures from Bandai.


NOBODY TOPS the Japanese when it comes to acting on weird toy ideas, and God bless ’em for it. Here is just the latest example.

The Bandai toy company last year released this cool collection of keychain figures depicting (l. to r.) Godzilla, Mechagodzilla, King Ghidorah, and Hedorah the Smog Monster having a press conference, apparently to apologize to the Japanese people for all the destruction. You’ll notice, however, that Hedorah is the only one not bowing. He doesn’t look all that contrite, which is not surprising for a tower of toxic sludge.

The figures are sold both separately and as a set, rendered in PVC, and fully painted. They each stand a little over 2-inches tall and come with a keychain and podium.

You can find them at Amazon and other retailers.

Packaging for the complete set.
