Godzilla BIG TRUMP Playing Cards

If you were a super villain, and you placed a block of radioactive poison in front of me, I would give you a weird look.  However, if you put down one with a cute superdeformed kaiju on it, I would snatch it up in an instant, and you would defeat me.
That said, take a look at these playing cards I just received. They have no date, and I can't discern a manufacturer either.  They are oversized, almost post-card size, nearly six inches tall.  They come in a handy plastic case, which, as I've seen before in other examples, has rather delicate hinges prone to breaking.  The face cards are adorned with cutesy kaiju, which of course is the whole point here.  Check these out:

Handy plastic carrying case!

 
 
King Ghidorah Joker (!) and card back artwork

Pretty sweet.  Sets of these rarely come up for sale, but if you see one, you may want to grab it....just in case you ever need them for any Super Evil Plans of World Domination you might be concocting!
