waist of a kaiju. Have one appearance since his
main movie, and that was completely stock footage,
and Ebirah then goes from being an undersea horror
to a joke for the 2004 movie. Sad, very sad. Well,
enough of that because I think it can mostly agreed
on the Showa Ebirah is a million times better than
Final Wars version. Just like the original
Ebirah, however, the 2004 version lacks on figures
just as much. Each are vastly ignored in the figure
department and only have a few collectables each.
This review is for the smaller Ultimate Monsters
series 2004 Ebirah.
Released in 2007, fans were able to get Ebirah
as part of the Ultimate Monsters series. The figures
came randomly in boxes, so you could have just as
much a chance to get Ebirah or any of the others.
The set includes Ebirah, Hedorah, Gigan, King Caesar,
Godzilla, and another version of Godzilla with glow
in the dark spines. All of them are from Godzilla:
Final Wars (2004).
These figures can be best described as hyper figures,
but the detailing is simply astonishing, even better
than some of the six and eight inch figures. Ebirah,
like all of these figures, needs assembled and there
are tons of pieces. The tail, the body, the claws,
the legs, the head, and the antenna all make for
a fun time of putting together. Unfortunately, it
isn't rare for some pieces, especially the antennas
and legs, to fall off when grabbing it, but these
aren't figures meant to be moved around a lot. Ebirah
is purely meant for display.
Ebirah looks like a perfect match of his movie
counterpart. And the highlights on the claws just
look down right awesome. The body is nicely decorated
with the right amount of spikes and bumps, keeping
this figure from looking overly smooth. The back
and tail is especially nice in this department.
The sculpt and colors of Ebirah can virtually be
described as flawless.
Now, how does it scale in with the rest of the
figures? Take a look at the picture. Ebirah is just
the right size and fits right in with the likes
of Godzilla and Hedorah. He’s not too big
or small, just right. He’s about six inches
long, not bad considering Hedorah is just a tad
In the end, a highly recommended figure if you
like these type. An entire set goes for about $60,
but I got Ebirah for $6 on E-Bay. Not bad, not bad
