Out of the packaging,'Zilla looks pretty cool.Aside from the obvious soar thumb gimmick alterations,this figure is decent.
I thought the exaggerated waist cut would bother m,e,but It really doesn't. It's just there for the gimmick and that's it.It actually adds to the height of the overall figure.The sculpt was done nicely.I love the detailed lizard scales and bumps.
Here's another thing that might turn collectors off,and that's the visibility of the screws on the other half of the sculpt.They are actually more pronounced in the pictures than they are If you have him displayed in normal lighting.Darker screw heads may have been a better alternative but like I said,It's really not that big of a deal.Anyways ,If your buying this figure,It's for the gimmick and play-ability ,not the aesthetics.
Overall a great purchase, I think ,for a figure that normally goes for 15 bucks.He still looks great dueling It out with Optimus and various other figures In my collection.Comparison pics below!
