godzilla's head

Mattel No. 2440 Godzilla!

[Godzilla full body shot] Probably the most recognizable to Americans was the Godzilla Shogun Warrior. He was the shortest of the Shoguns and didn't come with any interesting projectiles or weapons. To make up for the shortcoming, Godzilla's fist shot off! He also has a red lever projecting from the back of his head that extended a "tongue" of flames. Godzilla's arms and legs can be repostitioned, but his head was motionless. His feet has yellow claws screwed to their bottoms that contain wheels for scooting the King of Monsters across the floor (no shag carpet, please).

There were at least three releases of Shogun Godzilla:

The first release was made with a much lighter and brighter green plastic, was painted (the eyes and mouth) very brightly, and had weights in the bottom of its legs. The yellow plastic claw/foot bottoms has a reinforced ring that inserts into holes in Godzilla's legs (the weights reside in these inserts).

The second release was made from a darker green plastic and had no weights in its legs. The face paint was less garish and more subdued.

The third release was almost identical to the second, but Mattel got smart and reinforced the red lever after customer complaints of its snapping off.

As a note, the Japanese release of Shogun Godzilla had a speaker in its chest, with a pull string so you can make Godzilla bark!

There were slight changes made to the box of second and third release Godzilla, indicated by the printer's code: R6493> P643>9858 printed on the front. The box reads:

  • He rolls on wheels!
  • Tongue flashes pretend "flame"!
  • Claw can be launched
    No Batteries! No Electricity!

    CONTENTS: GODZILLA™ figure 19 1/2" tall, wheels on his feet, flashing tongue with pretend "flame" and claw that can be launched! Tail requires ASSEMBLY. Claw not for use with all SHOGUN© Warriors.

    I don't normally endorse new toy products, but these Gamera toys are going to be in limited supply and I thought them too cool to pass up! Check out what Trendmasters is offering...
