One of three destruction based playsets, with the other being for the enemy monster and one the Destruction City release. All are similar in principal, with small two inch figures and breakable structures that make them fun to play with and perfect for their target audience.

 
Front View

Each of the Destruction packs comes with a monster, a building, and one military vehicle. This pack comes with Godzilla, a red building and a jet.

As far as the Godzilla figure, it has limited articulation and is the same exact toy that appears in the Destruction City set. Godzilla's arms and legs can rotate, but that's it. Watch for rotating Godzilla's legs because if they go too far, the legs will fall off. The detail placed into aspects like the scales is also very well done, especially for a figure of this scale. However, the toy has ups and downs and the paint is one of the downsides. The paint job on the teeth, for example, looks like it was applied quickly with little gaps of white paint missing. Will the intended audience care? Not in the slightest. The eyes are interesting as they are just yellow with no black pupil in the center. It makes him look evil. I like that. To round out the color, the light green that moves from the chest on down to the tail looks nice and there are no blemishes to be found.

There's no paint to be found on the accessories such as the buildings and the military craft. While the red building looks a little odd compared to the gray building used in promotional stills such as this one, it does serve one major purpose: it stands out. That's actually really cool because if you collect all the sets, you're not stuck with buildings that all look the same. The buildings and bridge, I've learned, were made different solid colors of red, green, and blue because grey just looked too boring. An all monotone gray city scape would have looked a little dull. It's a wise move because it adds some life to the set. I would have liked to have seen some coloring for the military vehicles to make them pop more but again, the intended audience most likely won't care.

As a result of the wide range of colors, the figures look pretty impressive when all combined together into a single play frame like below:

   
Package

Overall, this release is fun to play with, especially when combined with the others. I whole heatedly recommend getting all three of the sets. If you're a parent, this is a great choice for the kids to play with. If you're a parent/someone who has no kids, this set will turn you INTO a kid.

As a side note, here is the Fact Sheet listing for this figure:
