Originally released in 2016 to publicise the Shin Godzilla movie (now only available on the secondary market for a 500%+ markup), these Kaiju figurines of monsters with their heads hung solemnly at a press conference are a respectful nod to an important part of Japanese culture: the apology – through which balance and harmony in society are maintained.

From top: Godzilla apologizing for destructive vandalism (破壊行為), Mechagodzilla for imitation and copyright infringement (模倣行為) and King Ghidorah for aggressive invasion (侵略行為). 

That’s Hedorah on the right in the last pic.
