20 years ago in Japan, the release date of two very different films, Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack and Hamtaro: Adventure in Ham-Ham Land fell on the exact same day. With fans from both sides flocking to the cinemas to see either movie, there was something else that happened that day that wasn’t just pure coincidence.

That something was the birth of Gojiham-kun, a hybrid between the terrifyingly gigantic Godzilla and the fun-sized Hamtaro. Merchandise of Gojiham-kun was given away as a present to viewers who came to see the movies. And although he may just look like Hamtaro wearing a Godzilla costume to disguise himself, don’t be fooled by appearances -- Gojiham-kun continued to be a popular merchandise character after all these years.

To celebrate Gojiham-kun’s 20th birthday, a new product inspired by him is being released by hobby goods retailer, Premium Bandai. It is a Gojiham-kun tissue case, and for the price of 6,600 yen, you can have this hamster-kaiju in your room or in your office, providing you with tissues and also something cute to look at.

You can find the product page to purchase the Gojiham-kun tissue holder through Premium Bandai’s website.
