Now here is a treasure from my 1980’s boyhood — the glow-in-the-dark Godzilla model. When I sat down to pull up some background on this, I first thought that this was one of the Aurora model kits. It indeed started out as one. But I think it’s more likely that I had the one produced from the same mold by Monogram, which was released in 1978. (Mine was a Christmas or birthday present around 1980 or so.)
This was a sturdy model, as it survived just fine amid the debris of that disastrous desk I kept as a second grader. And its glow-in-the-dark head and hands were damn cool.
Dear God, did I love this thing.
