Funny Japanese Monster Figurines Apologize For the Destruction They’ve Caused

Sorry Japanese Monster Toys Shin-Godzilla

Apologizing is considered an important part of Japanese culture, but it’s about more than just saying sorry. Showing remorse shows a person’s ability to reflect, be polite, and show respect to others. Combining the art of the apology with the Japanese love of kaiju (giant monsters in films), Gachapon World released a series of funny figurines depicting Japanese monsters humbly apologizing for the damage they’ve caused.

The funny series was released in 2016 as part of a promotional campaign for the Shin-Godzilla movie. Each toy is comically posed with its head hanging low next to little podiums with microphones, as if at a press conference. A toy Godzilla publicly apologizes for his relentless destruction, a Mechagodzilla figurine owns up to copyright infringement, and the three-headed King Gidra show remorse for his devastating invasion.

The collectible toys are no longer available via their original markets, but you can buy them secondhand for a costly markup.
