The Figure and Accessories
Overall Sculpt Design
As the Little Godzilla was designed to attract female and kid fans, it is characterized with the face of kitten (big eyes and big mouth).
And the figure is faithfully sculpted with depicting the characteristics very well.
In the picture below, you can also see a cute ear like those of cat.
When it comes to paint application, I appreciate gradations around its body but in comparison to works of Yuji Sakai, a Godzilla figure maker, it looks little rough (maybe my expectation for paint work of Godzilla figures have gotten high because of Sakai’s work. :p)
But I also appreciate variation in the pattern of the body parts. Parts of the face to the neck, the chest, parts of the legs, the arms, and the tail, and tail’s bottom have different patterns.
I don’t like its back part though, I see a big gap on the back and the white part of the inner part makes the figure look little cheap…
Although it has good articulation in arms and legs like other Godzilla action figures, the neck and the tail parts are not articulated at all…
Mouth’s articulation in maximum angle ↓
Back’s articulation in maximum angle ↓

This Godzilla figure seems to be designed especially for sitting posture. It looks the nicest to me in its sitting posture.
With the crystal set, you can depict the movie scene when Little Godzilla is imprisoned in the crystal by Space Godzilla.
