Many years ago Japan was terrorized by a hideous monster called Godzilla. It destroyed villages and murdered countless numbers of people. No one knew where it came from but they surmised that Godzilla was a creature of prehistoric origin. As suddenly as it had come, the monster returned to the sea and disappeared, leaving a wake of death and destruction behind it. Time passed and Godzilla became only a half remembered legend.
Then, in laboratories around the world, seismographs recorded a disturbance in the polar regions. Japanese scientists took a submarine to the area of the disturbance to investigate. Radio contact on the mainland reported that the scientists found high levels of radio-activity. A tremendous explosion was recorded on the seismographs. The submarine was never heard from again. Helicopters were sent to the site of the upheaval. They discovered the monster Godzilla, which had burst from its icy tomb and was making its way to the coast of Japan.
Military operations were set up on the beach in an attempt to turn the monster back or destroy it. They were not prepared for the sight of so ghastly a creature, nor will they prepared to fend it off. Bullets and tank projectiles had no effect on Godzilla. With a mighty roar Godzilla breathed out a flame like a gigantic blow torch which completely destroyed the military operation.
The monster made its way inland destroying everything in its path. One swipe of its tremendous tail could completely demolish tall buildings. The earth shook with the weight of its steps. Anything in Godzilla's way was seared by its flaming breath. No one could approach the beast because it was so highly radio-active. People fled in terror. There was no human way to stop Godzilla.
An enormous rumbling sound was then heard. The Earth began to shake with violent tremors. Cracks appeared on the surface. The tremendous weight of Godzilla caused the earth to shift and then to open. Godzilla disappeared into a deep crevasse. As the earthquake continued the ground shifted again and the crevasse closed, burying Godzilla under tons of earth and rocks. But, was Godzilla destroyed or only thrown into suspended animation until another earthquake could set him free?
A great Aurora reissue. As a 5 year old child staring at the guys shelf with Godzilla, King Kong and other figures, I could to own them. Now Atlantis made a dream come TRUE. Thanks a million for bringing joy to our lives
Great to see this kit out again. It's a great looking kit and Atlantis did a great job with it.
I remember this model from childhood. Prior to the Glow in the Dark series, Godzilla's mold was fuschia purple. I'm hoping that will be re-issued in that color mold. He has been re-issued green. This kit brings back a lot of memories for me and will make new ones as I share it with my grandson who is a big fan of Godzilla. The kit has the original mold color and the glow in the dark parts are exactly how I remember them. Great kit! Hoping they bring back King Kong as a nice addition to add to the fun. I also enjoyed the story line for the kit which came on the instruction pamphlet. Original re-issues of the monster models omitted that for some reason
Nicely done. Good options for glow and non-glow parts. I wish Atlantis Models had put their Aurora style logo on the front of the box instead of the "Godzilla 65th Anniversary" logo, which has no nostalgic appeal for a collector.
