Ghidrah model kit

Ghidrah model kit Aurora's Ghidrah model kit was released in 1975, as part of the Monsters Of The Movies series.

Modeled in orange and tan plastic, the kit shows the three-headed space monster destroying part of Tokyo.

Ghidrah was one of only three Japanese movie monsters to become Aurora kits, the others being Godzilla, and Rodan, which was also part of the Monsters of the Movies line. A second Godzilla design was also planned for this line, but was never released.

Ghidrah first appeared to American filmgoers in Ghidorah the Three-Headed Monster (1964), originally released in Japan as San Daikaij-: Chikyu Saidai no Kessen (Three Giant Monsters: The Greatest Battle On Earth), where the space-born monster battles Godzilla, Rodan, and Mothra.

For various reasons, this model, along with the rest of the Monsters of the Movies line, was only available through about 1977.
