Godzilla - Shogun Warriors

Shogun Warriors Godzilla The Shogun Warriors Godzilla figure was part of Mattel's line of jumbo-sized (24") toys fashioned after characters from Japanese cartoons, comics, and film (see also the entry for Shogun Warriors).

The figure was modeled after the popular Japanese movie monster in mottled green plastic. Its right hand could be launched by pulling a lever; likewise a 'tongue' of flame would protrude from the figure's mouth-slit with the press of a lever on the back of its head. The longer tail section was removable for easier storage (see photo).

The Godzilla figure proved to be one of the most popular in the Shogun Warriors line.

For some time, this was the only Godzilla action figure widely available to American kids.
