Titled "Classic Mechagodzilla", 2012's Fusion MehcaGodzilla 1974 is a fun variation of the character with its translucent mold, wild paint, and glitter.

 
Articulation

In terms of design, this is a reissue of their older release of the Showa version of the character except with several twists. Because of the translucency of the figure, the vinyl is thinner and more "squishy" with the thickest parts of the toy being found on the joints. The figure is lighter in weight than say Banda Creation's Millennium Godzilla and is soft to the touch.

For articulation, Fusion MechaGodzilla 74 has 6 points with the head, legs, arms, and torso all being moveable. His head and torso can swivel 360 degrees, which is neat as it stays true to the abilities displayed by the robot in his feature film.

   
Close-up

Let's get to the highlight though, at least for me, as this is probably the coolest part of the figure: the paint job. The black "smudges" are interesting and seem be to be placed liberally on the figure and even into the eyes. Glitter is also seemingly baked into the mold and it gives it a cool look. While the figure is mostly comprised of the gray/white/black design, the appropriate oranges and reds are still applied, such as on the MG title on his arm.

Overall, the Fusion Series of the Godzilla line has been around for a couple of years now and has always brought wilder and crazy variations to the monsters. It's always nice to break from the norm and this figure does just that for MechaGodzilla 1974.
