Cockroach Kaiju from 70's commercial.These came out around 2000.
It's pretty big.
that looks pretty damn sweet
but for some reason, i think it would look better without those two extra arms or whatever they are.
Ummm, that's how it looked in the commercial...
cool toy, love the expression on the face and the bright red mouth. any idea who made it?
Are the antennae poseable? They appear to be wire.
His vicious 'smile' is priceless. Are there more cockroach toys out there ?
I think I saw him in the basement of my old apartment building.
Was the commercial animated or was it a suit? Thanks for sharing.
It was a guy in a suit. Wish someone would dig up the commercial!
was it this one

Thats funny as hell!
He's got tha pump going on!
This guy! Love at first sight. Definitely looks & feels like it was made in '90, not 2000.
The sculpt and paints are just perfectly charming. The antennae are a great touch.
"Gokidon" yields a lot more results while searching.
Great acquisition, Rei. Definitely a super underappreciated sculpt. I passed along the version above, which I regretted in hindsight, but have always had the peepers open for the one you snagged. I am glad you revived Paul's original thread, this guy deserves more love.
Yes! And, now I really want this guy!
...but I know that'll never happen....
Never say never Rei. If there is one thing I have learned with vintage collecting, its that given enough time you always seen something come up for sale.
They are indeed out there, Rei. This just in from Yoda on Instagram (you'll have to click through):
Oh boy! I'll definitely keep my eyes crossed!
Thanks Steve, very nice to see more fotos of that gem!
