    Gamera is a giant, flying turtle-like creature from a popular series of Japanese sci-fi monster movies produced by Daiei movie. Created by Yonejiro Saito in 1965 to rival the success of Toho Studio's Godzilla during the kaiju (evil monster) boom of the mid-to-late 1960s, Gamera has gained fame and notoriety as a Japanese icon in his own right. Imported for U.S. TV in the 1970's Gamera movies (of which there are now 5), have sustained this international popularity. This magnificently ferocious figure of the 1999 movie version of Gamera is the largest and most spectacular such figure ever made.
