Dogora GID Figure and Finger Puppet

Here are a couple shots of the Dogora large figure and finger puppet made of GID and clear vinyl with multi-color metallic flecks. By Marmit.

The inspiration for this figure came from a movie, Giant Space Monster Dogora (宇宙大怪獣ドゴラ Uchu Daikaijū Dogora) released by Toho Studios in 1964. It was directed by Ishirō Honda and special-effects director Eiji Tsuburaya. In the movie, there are multiple Dogoras on the attack.

From Wikipedia: "The plot involves a carbon-eating mutated "space cell" (essentially a giant jellyfish in the sky) with the ability to multiply, and the havoc it wreaks on the lives of the Tokyo police and a group of diamond thieves. The Dogora eventually meet their end when the JSDF attack them with wasp venom, causing them to crystallize and fall to earth."
