Mothra, despite being more or less a solid piece, is a great toy. She has a good paint job, a lot of coloring, and most importantly she stands out from previous versions of the character-- significantly.
The monster includes no accessories, and she really doesn't need any-- so this set worked out OK.
Everybody loves Mothra. She's had three movies with her in the starring role in the 1990s, she's been redesigned in a number of interesting ways, and now, she manages to look like the classic character and completely new-- in other words, they managed to come up with a good design here.
Most of the detail work comes in the coloring, which is pretty apparent from the photos. There's some buglike texture resembling hair here and there, and like many of the larger Final Wars figures it's obvious a lot of work was done to get her to look like her on-screen counterpart-- which is good, because otherwise this would be a very uninteresting toy.
Her head is her only point of articulation-- not too surprising, but they could have tried to put some sort of joint in the wings or in the legs. The detail is great with her big blue eyes and nicely sculpted facial details which, despite being made out of a translucent red-orange plastic, turned out to look spectacular. It's a nice big toy that pretty much speaks for itself, which is good and bad-- if you like what you see, it's a good toy. If not, it's not like it can do anything to redeem itself.
Mothra's only form of packaging is her tag, just like the rest of this series of Godzilla toys.
There really isn't much to it. I mean, it's a tag.
This is a must-buy for Mothra fans and most G-fans, assuming you like the colors and character design. She isn't capable of doing much, so she's going to make a fine display piece or a great toy-- assuming you're careful with her. Some samples have a split on the seams near where her body meets her wings, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for details such as this when buying one.
