in the wondrous year for all Godzilla fans, 1998, a
series of figures arrived that would instantly collide
with many different kids' toys of Jurassic Park, Alien,
and even Predator to prove what is the dominant monster.
Like many kids from the year, or I was the only one
who did this, this release of Baby Godzilla often found
its way into the Jurassic Park compound to fight off
raptors and Aliens, but this isn't for the history
of the toy being reviewed. Like many releases by Trendmasters,
this release of an anorexia-stricken Baby Godzilla
differs in design from its movie companion. Colored
a fiery red with a cream-colored chest, the design
is, arguably, even better than the ones used in the
Besides the color scheme, the most obvious difference
in this design is the monster's jaws and over-sized
teeth. To be fair, however, this release does center
around the fact this particular Baby Godzilla, called
"Razor Fang" on the package, is equipped with a powerful
bite to render its victims helpless. Another visual
difference is its spines, or lack there of. The original
1998 movie babies were all equipped with tiny spikes
while this little devil is equipped with nothing more
than a few back bumps. Also, while its movie brothers
may have been on the skinny side, this figure just
goes overboard. The creature lacks any sort of muscle
tone like its inspiration.
Now, with the main complaints out of the way, I can
easily say this figure isn't that bad. Its arms and
legs all move, allowing the figure to be set up and
a wide variety of different poses and taunts. The jaws,
as said, open up wide so that they can clamp close
around other figures' bodies and limbs. The jaws themselves
are activated by pressing down on a small button on
its back. The figure also stands at a nice six inches
allowing it to go into battle with other movie series'
toy lines and offers it unlimited usage against endless
hordes of enemies.
Alongside this super-evil-burning-Baby Godzilla, two
other figures of its type were released. One with a
slashing arm and the other with a powerful tail whack.
The figure looks nice on a shelf when its sitting with
its brothers as papa Godzilla watches on. Just don't
let it get close to Minilla. He doesn't like Minilla.
