This figure turned up at the end
of the summer of '98. A complete rip off of the brand new toy that
was released with the Godzilla movie.
The packaging is the same as
the Godzilla you can find at your local toy store. Only the bootleggers
have decided to call him "DINOSAUR"
This bootleg figure comes with
a rocket launching tank and a missile and Godzilla's breath. In the authentic
toy, Godzilla's breath is a clear blue missile-like accessory. in this
figure it is army green. If I get any more, I will open this one
up and give you more details about the figure. This is the only bootleg
figure I have seen of the new Godzilla. I suspect there may be more with
The bubble is pretty fragile
and is not glued down very well. In the middle of the bubble is a hole
that you can put your finger through. Look very close. It is right around
where his right knee is. Through this hole you can push the button located
on Godzilla's right rib cage area. You get Godzilla's famous voice
when you push that button.
Why the bootleggers called this
figure "DINOSAUR" is beyond me. On the back of the card is the same exact
print you will find on the authentic Godzilla toy packages. All except
for the copyrights and toy manufacturers name is on this package.
Also missing is the "Genuine Godzilla" logo that is on the authentic toy
I was really surprised to find
a bootleg Godzilla action figure so quickly and to be honest with you,
the makers of this figure did a really good job.
What do you think???
This is the figure in the original
package. As you can see, the card is exactly the same as the authentic
toy. Only the name of the figure has been changed.
Here is a close up of the figure
and its accessories.
An extreme close up of Godzilla The Bootleg Monster.
Well, this is the first Godzilla
bootleg toy. I have the Bandai Godzilla bootlegs that will come up later.
