Released in 2004 with a slew of other tiny figures for the Godzilla Super Chronicles set, this release of Biollante is the latest figure of the massive plant. She, like the other kaiju, was placed in a book-like box that would open up as if a book. I had gotten the series (all except Gotengo, Destoroyah, and Gigan) for free from a friend who was getting rid of most of his collection.

 
Side View

Now don't get these figures confused with the High Grade series. They're much smaller and don't feature as much detail, but aren't half bad. Biollante stands at two inches tall and is made of hard vinyl. The tentacles are about two and a half inches long and can be removed from the body.

As said, Biollante doesn't sport the amount of detail the pricier High Grades feature, but she isn't half bad. The only real complaints that can be made is that she only has four tentacles and is too small when compared to the other kaiju released in the series. Her mold is nicely textured with ridges and bumps with plant-like details running down its back. The tentacles are stretched out to the sides and look ready to strike.

The paint job is anything but bad. While some more highlights of darker greens. The mouth is painted entirely red, making it seem as if she only has a single row of teeth which, if you saw her film, you'd know is just not the case. It's a small flaw, but if all of Anguirus' spikes can be colored in this set, you'd think they could do the same for Biollante's countless amounts of teeth.

Not a bad of figure at any cost, but not the shining star of the set (I believe that goes to Rodan). I can't say get the set just for Biollante, but do get the set if you come across it. The figures may be small and it may cost a tad bit now, but it's a nice collection.
