Released by Bandai in August of 2013, this is the Mechagodzilla figure that is part of a series of six toys called the "Chibi Figures" line. This toy can be purchased separately, in two packs with another toy or they can all be purchased together as part of the Godzilla Chibi Figures 6-Pack.

 
Side View

This Mechagodzilla is from the 1993 film Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II and is a fairly exaggerated interpretation of the character. For the paint job, it's rather simple with its silver body and yellow eyes. It's the design however, where it's interesting. One of the first things you'll notice is that the face is elongated to where it looks almost dog-like even down to the nose. Another exaggeration is the "horn" on top of his head to where it protrudes outward much farther than his movie counterpart.

   
Back View

The level of detail is solid especially on the back of the figure which has included the rear back jets which I thought was a nice touch. The "sections" in the eyes add a nice attempt at movie accuracy as well.

For articulation, Mechagodzilla is sort of like Chibi Destoroyah where the arms can move up and down but not by much. One thing that really stands out to me is the pose. It's like a little "tough guy" pose which I find to be very endearing.

Overall, Mechagodzilla is a solid figure but one does wonder how the Showa version would look as a Chibi this size.
