As part of the 65th anniversary of Godzilla, Walmart is selling this 1954 version of the King of the Monsters.
He is zip tied into a pretty nice box.
The series has two other Godzilla monsters.
Godzilla wakes up after being frozen in northern waters for decades.
He begins his rampage by terrorizing a northern village in the Soviet Union.
Stalin has sent troops and tanks to defend against the monster.

The Commissar makes demands on Santa and his military advisor, General Nutcracker.
BT7 tanks appear!
The Soviet armor appears around the town.
Stalin wants the North Pole.
The North Pole has no armor force.
Stalin might get coal in his stocking but he was asking for greater coal production...

MPC 60mm troops in metallic blue. My favorite color.
Their metallic blue is the perfect camouflage at medium to long range in snow.
These Christmas buildings make a nice amusement park in any scale from 1/72 up to 60mm.
The accessories work well too.
Meeting the locals.
The winged fairy is a bit large, but then how big are fairies?
Thank you Billy Hill for you role in making this set up possible.

I love the candy building.
Each building is very unique but several are tree based.
The unique buildings are the candy building and the elf workshop building.
These buildings have a lot of little accessories.
I suspect many of these figures will be edited from my collection.
As it is difficult to determine a proper wargame role for a 70mm fairy.

Here are several of the accessories that come with the Santa buildings. This large fairy figure is about 70mm size.
Most of the figures are about 32mm.
They come fully painted and ready to go.
They are all well done.
The signage is very nice.
The signs could be repainted but I think I will keep them.
Nice figure but limited wargame use.

Wal-Mart has a range of $10 buildings and accessories for Christmas.
There are at least six companies that make various Santa Claus in combat figures.
Other combatants include elves, snowmen, evergreen trees, penguins, polar bears, and various other Arctic and Antarctic animals.
I think these are interesting and I have several uses planned for them.
My plan for the buildings is to use them for Santa Wars, Wizard of Oz type games, and as amusement park buildings in my large urban areas.

All I know is the Colonel said New York City was under attack and to mobilize the whole regiment and move everyone into town right away.
The First Platoon, of the 237th Anti-Aircraft Gun Battery is on duty a few blocks from Times Square.
Listening devices are listening and the guns are at the ready.
Military Police have armored cars blocking the streets.
And a few machine guns are set up and ready.
