figure based on the 1998 Godzilla remake, or more
accurately, another Baby Godzilla figure of the
1998 raptors… I mean Baby Godzillas! Unlike
the other two I reviewed, this one's gimmick is
hatching, freshly hatching from a pile of poo…
I mean an egg. I do admit, however, that this is
one brilliant idea and the action works, its just
that the egg looks like a pile of you know what
and the Baby Godzilla looks almost nothing like
Let's start this the simple way: How does it work.
You take the baby, and sit it inside the egg. There's
a little plug on the inside of the egg that fits
into the tail. Then you close the egg. Then, when
you want it to hatch, you just press the button
and BAM! Instant egg hatching!
Well, for a Godzilla toy anyway. Usually we just
get run of the mill figures. Now for the Baby Godzilla
itself. Its obviously based more on the Claw
Slasher Baby Godzilla I reviewed previously.
The colors are the same: Yellow and red with black
spots. Sadly, the color didn’t work there
and it doesn’t work here. Articulation wise
there isn’t much. His legs can be moved slightly,
allowing the baby to lean forward, and its arms
can also go up and down. The tail and head can’t
be changed position, so no matter what you try,
it always looks awkward.
Now for the egg itself: It looks like crap, literally.
A nasty brown with what appears to be slime covering
big white blur with brown highlights. I know there
wasn't much to work with, what with most of the
scenes in the movie that involve the egg being awfully
dark, but I know it didn’t look like a big
Well, enough of about that, more on the creature
itself. The detailing and texturing here, however,
looks really good, and he has more prominent spines,
or growing spines, on his back than both of the
Way back when, I know this didn't go for much.
I’m not sure what it goes for now, but I still
say the Razor Fang toy remains the best of the US
Baby Godzilla figures. Get it if you're a fan or
see one for cheap.
