And I thought the last title was a mouthful...now, you see, this is what they should've done with the Mecha-King Ghidorah Base: included a tiny Ghidorah to fight!
Besides being all silver and shiny, this playset is unique among the other head-shaped ones, because it has a vertical orientation. It works pretty well in the "play value" department. Besides various heavy weaponry (actually the same missile launcher as in the Mecha-King Ghidorah set), you also get some vehicles, which can be connected together like a train, and a removable radar dish that you can pretend is a Maser cannon.
*No buildings here, but instead you get plenty of action features inside the base, like a working elevator, excuse me, a "Utility Transport Elevator Pad," a folding ramp, and a cylinder that opens to reveal a hiding chamber for Mecha-G.
*The Garuda ship makes a second appearance.
*The Mecha-Godzilla minifigure is unique! This was a nice move by Trendmasters, rather than just rehashing the one from the year before.
*The configuration and weapons can be switched around on the Attack Vehicles, which is a nice touch.
*Just whose base is this, anyway? It looks like Mecha-Godzilla's house, come to think of it.
*When folded, the playset includes the fin on Mecha-Godzilla's head--this is both good and bad, because while it completes the excellent look of the playset, it was also removable, and tended to get lost by careless 90's kids.
