Bandai made that in the 80's if I remember right.

Either the 1984 Bandai Godzilla or 1988 reissue from the Great Monster series.

Picture is the 1984 version. Go to Club Tokyo to learn more.

The Godzilla in the pic is the 1988 reissue
Zippy has retired from fighting and just hangs out with dogs these days!

I tried to redo the photos with the giant meltdown Godzilla but she's too old and grumpy now :D

Wow Ian. Count me in as one of those people who has long been obsessed with this photo, but, in all honestly, I truly believed it was one of those internet stock photos whose origin (from some unlikely set up studio shot) had long since been lost. It has honestly become ubiquitous seemingly, and to learn it came from you is both gasp inducing and heart-melting. Thank you so much for sharing this photo with all lovers of cats and Godzilla worldwide. I know you will never be able to take it back now, but I will endeavor in every situation to make sure proper credit is known. smo9monster: creator of perfect photos, lover of beautiful toys, and all around perfect chap. Hats off, good sir.

Sorry for my dis-information Zippy. You never can believe what you read on the intenets. (Fluffles' attorneys & you have reached a settlement, I presume.)
