R/C Mechagodzilla Robot: Crush, Crumble and Chomp!

Why is it that Japan gets all the coolest toys? I mean really, why can’t I walk into the neighborhood store and pick up one of these?

Coming this December from Bandai Japan, this remote-controlled Mechagodzilla robot is truly a sight to behold.

Towering at nearly 20-inches tall (1/100th scale), the mechanical creation is faithful to the version of the Robosaurus Rex from 1974’s Gojira tai Mekagojira (Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla).

Mechagodzilla has light up eyes, nostrils and mouth, and his spinning rocket-launcher fingers and toes have flashing LEDs in them too. But the best part is that Mecha can go all Linda Blair on your ass (or Steve Martin in The Jerk), spinning his head in a complete circle as he screeches sound effects digitized from the movie.

Now the bad news. Not only is Mechagodzilla only available in Japan, he’ll set you back a whopping ¥84,000 (about $828 USD, depending on how the dollar is doing). Still, if you’re a big fan of the classic franchise, you might just have to pinch your pennies for one of these.
