Do not hate on this toy

Do not hate on this toy Godzilla fans, it is the only toy directly modeled after the film's poster art depiction of Mechagodzilla 2. Cannon hands and all.

This toy was also available with blueish-grey missiles instead of red missiles:

More than anything, this

More than anything, this makes me wonder what would have happened if Godzilla vs King Kong went a different direction...

Still like the toy.

First off- thanks for posting that reference artwork netkid! That is really nice and I've not seen that till now.

I bought this(MechZilla) and the Mecha-Gidorah figs when they were on the shelf. I still display them with all the other Godzilla collection and they look fine. The obvious attractor was the missile launching capabilities. I got these two since the monsters were supposed to be mech, I thought the power up items looked more appropriate for these guys.

Josh - we know your a bit finicky when it comes to what you like- but I think it looks decent for what it was and the reference artwork netkid posted makes it all that much better. We cant always base the late 80's early 90's stuff on quality of hollow plastic, gummy molds, etc. I remember these being priced pretty low too. The age of super quality wasn't on the shelves. Most of the toys out during this release were similar in quality of materials I believe for the price-line.

LOVE IT!

I remember seeing the Godzilla Wars figures back in the day. However, I don't remember the ones with accessories at all. Looking at this review, what I loved most about this figure is not only the extra firepower, but the derpy-looking face that MechaGodzilla II normally has is replaced with one that actually looks sinister and evil. This is exactly how a kaiju-killing machine is supposed to look.
