Meet Gabara. For those of you who don't recognize him, Gabara was and is a star of Japanese monster movies. He fought Godzilla in All Monster's Attack. Of course, Godzilla gave him a quite the beat down but such is the life of a monster.
The figure, itself, is almost 7 inches tall. He is made of soft vinyl. The owner of the figure is a collector of Japanese monster and mecha figures. He requested me to paint Gabara and provided much reference material. I was a bit worried about painting such a large figure and about getting paint to stick to soft vinyl. But I thought everything went pretty smoothly and my painting method seems durable enough.
Below is a close up of his head.
Until next time,
