Mattel’s Godzilla Shogun Warrior

Shogun Godzilla

At some point in the late 70’s, Mattel were happily importing lots of Japanese robots and branding them as the Shogun Warriors. These robots were predecessors to toys like the Transformers and were extremely cool – especially when Mattel branched out a little to include Godzilla in the line!

With fire-breathing and a fast-and-furious fist, which kid would not want to set up fights between Godzilla and their giant robots?

    My brother and I had this along with two of the other robots. This guy was so cool. I always look for them at shows and flea markets. I remember Godzilla’s tail used to pop off when we were playing him.

    Great ad too.
