That's Goro, one of the Ultraman kaiju. Are there any markings on him?

Yup, that's Goro from Ultra Q episode 2. He was made by adding a tail to the somewhat dilapidated 1962 King Kong suit.
The figure is a repro of the original 60s Marusan 9 inch figure, possibly from the mid 2000s - a bunch of repros were released in 3 inch size, but you said this one is 5 inches? I know the modern era Marusan has reissued alot of figures in various sizes, so it might be one of those.
Crazy am I? We'll see if I'm crazy or not!
