How much it would run? It is a awesome Tarrasque. Since when did we worry about money. Man I am addicted now I got to google these fine folks.

I was working at a TRU in 1998 when they released the American Godzilla movie, and I grabbed the 2 ft long Action figure scaled ultimate Godzilla" by Trendmasters for $10 when it went on markdown, I have used that for both a Tarrasque and Krayt Dragon.

For point of refrence a stormtrooper mini (so most any DDM as well) can pretty much stand up with little problems inside the mouth of it. It was designed with the idea of "eating" 3.75 inch action figures and it's gut can hold i think 3 with ease. The PC's cry when it hits the table, and scares the cat where we gamed.

Found another link with a house cat for size comparison Here

Think it works great

Well that good deal was 10 years ago when there were tons of them sitting around unsold, yeah I would hate to try to buy it now.

Here's a different one (I personally would just use a Gamera model).

As a DM, if I busted out Godzilla or Gamera and dropped him onto the gaming table, I would lose all control of the game and we would all be rolling around on the floor in hysterical laughter. Some minis just aren't conducive to a controlled gaming session, ie Aspect of Vecna & Clay Golem...
