Mothra, Rodan, Mechagodzilla, Mecha-King Ghidorah
a comic Trendmasters packaged with their 10-inch-scale
figures, released in 1994 under the Godzilla King
of the Monsters line. The toys came with sound
and lights features that were activated through a motion
detector. The comic leaves something to be desired,
however. The story goes over Genco's attempt to try
and combine monster DNA with that of Godzilla's Egg
in order to create the "Ultimate Bio Weapon."
Godzilla, Rodan, and Mothra awake (all on cue) and
begin making their march toward New York, where Genco
is located. Genco releases Garuda, which attacks Rodan,
along with Mecha-King Ghidorah and Mechagodzilla, who
attack Godzilla. The battle is short and Godzilla is
victorious. Godzilla then rescues his egg and destroys
the chairman of Genco, who looks remarkably like Professor
X from X-Men,
and the story ends with the monsters leaving New York.
Throughout the simplistic story is more than the comic's
fair share of cheesy dialogue. For example: "Mecha
Team reporting..... situation under control." "NOT!"
Sadly, the art isn't too detailed either, and the monsters
resemble their Trendmasters' counterparts more than
any of the renditions seen in the movies. The coloring,
while technically without mistakes, looks rather flat
and lifeless with the more sophisticated techniques
utilized in most modern comic books. The cover would
probably be the comic's greatest asset as the coloring
is more lively and more detail is put into the artwork.
Overall, it's a simplistic comic that was adequate
for its purpose, considering it was given away with
Trendmasers' 10-inch line of Godzilla toys.
