So here we have yet another of Trendmasters 4.5 inch scale figures. This time its Battra, the dark moth. Released in the second wave of the company’s line of figures, dubbed Godzilla Wars, Battra is said to have replaced Mothra due to her low sales compared to the other kaiju in the toyline. Like others, Battra came packaged in two figure battle sets and a larger, nine figure box set to celebrate the franchise’s 40th anniversary. Like many others, the figure was also released in a special color box set that gave the creature a unique color scheme. I’ll be going over both versions here.

Battra is molded in three simple pieces: his body and two wings. The body itself is nicely detailed for an older figure of this smaller size. There’s plenty of bumps and ridges. Even the insect kaiju’s six legs are decently sculpted onto the body, tucked close to its underside. The wings could use a bit more detailing, but thankfully the colorful patterns hide the fact there isn’t any sort of detailing on them.

Scaling wise, Battra fits in fine with the rest of the figures Trendmasters released in this line.




Depending on how you acquired this toy, you got a trading card with him. Sadly, because I only got it through the 40th anniversary set, I do not have this card to show.

The basic Battra is sculpted in a dark gray material with bright red applied to his little spikes. His horns and tail “pincer” things are painted a bright yellow, with his tusks/teeth a creamish color. The eyes are especially nice, painted red with a yellow interior. While not film accurate, it does look cool. The wings are especially nice with a mixture of red, black and yellow. Additionally, the “claws” on the wings are painted yellow.

The alternate version, or as I dub him “Easter Battra”, almost comes off as a “what if Battra was a good guy.” The body is sculpted in a very, very light shade of purple with the spikes a deep purple. His horns, “claws”, and “pincer things” are a bright shade of green with his eyes and teeth/tusks remaining the same color as the basic version. The wings keep the same pattern, only changing the red to purple and yellow to green. I imagine this color scheme might not be favorable to some, but I really think it's easy on the eyes. I’ve always wanted to see a “Halloween Mothra”, with her colors being black, orange, yellow and red, to meet this brighter “Easter Battra.”


Not bad. Not bad at all. There’s really not much I can’t say here I haven’t said about the other releases in this line. It’s a solid little toy and its rarer, 40th anniversary repaint version looks cool.
