All in all a good toy; arm’s a bit loose.
This mechagodzilla has so many more points of articulation than the Godzillas from the same toy line. However, one of those points IS NOT the elbow. The forearms detach from the rest of the arm at the elbow. I’m not sure if this is an intentional part of the design or not. All the other figures in this toy line have detachable pieces to emulate “battle damage”, and it’s possible that the detachable arms are entirely intention for this same purpose. However, intentional or not, after the arm was detached, it wouldn’t remain in its socket when reinserted. It would immediately fall out again, obligating me to glue it in place.
Still; it’s my son’s favorite figure for the series so far, and for what I paid, it was a good deal. Fairly sturdy within reason, apart from the arm. It won’t survive a tug-of-war between your kids, but my boys (7 and 5) have been fairly rough with it, making it fight the other toys. Frankly, I’m shocked that the arm detaching is the only issue we’ve had, and THAT happened outside of their rough play.
All in all: a good toy.Read full review
