Really impressive prototype collection Trendmasters. As a kid the Trendmasters Godzilla figures from wave 1 of their 1994-1995 toy line were the only Godzilla figures readily available for me. I would pick these guys up at ToysRus. The only thing that turned me off immensely from these figures were the liberties taken to change up the monster designs and stylize the hell out of the classic designs. By comparison the Godzilla Animated tv series toyline seemed to have replicated each monster perfectly from the small screen. Its a bloody shame that none of these were mass produced. I would love to add a Godzilla "animated" version prototype to my collection.

I can't believe that Cyber Godzilla can stand in that pose with its tail up without falling down. Amazing..... For those interested including myself you guys have any suggestions with regards to where I can hunt some prototypes down from this toyline?

Thanks for shedding some insight into the world of collecting these awesome prototypes. I'll definitely be sending a PM to you along with my email address. If anything I'm very interested in getting an animated version of Godzilla. The other monsters not as much. Hopefully one day I can add one of these to my collection and then post a review here at Gforever.net. Come to think of it, perhaps you could consider doing that for us here at Gforever.net. I've been posting detailed figures reviews here at Gforever.net with tons of pictures for Bandai's SH MonsterArts series during the last half year. It would be awesome to see more photos of your prototypes and your personal insights into how you got them and their sculpt, paint, articulation etc..... I know you've done a special article special with Scifi Japan. But that gave a mere glimpse of each of these figures. Some more detailed pics similar to how I do my reviews would be great!

Let me, Hesei, or Gforever know if your ever interested in doing something like that.

On a side note I read in some of your previous posts that some of these figures have electronic parts inside the prototypes. Are these working? Light up effects or sound effects?

Just amazing stuff really. Thanks for the youtube link. I've been thinking even though these are prototypes I would assume that both the resin casts and the prototypes are made in China? Or were the resin prototypes of that 10 inch Godzilla made in the US before being shipped to China to make a few prototypes?

Love the group shot. I too would love to get my hands on some of the monsters from the animated series. Please keep me posted as well if you ever decide to part w/ a CyberZilla, normal Zillas, or a C-Rex. Let us know if you are interested in helping us with some articles on these rare items. You are one of the few who will ever get to see and handle them in person.

I look forward to watching the youtube link when I get home from work and I bet if the fins lit up, that would add such a neat effect to the figures!

And lastly this photo from underneath..., which shows the Production Number (31112") for this line of toys. Always a sure sign of it being a prototype, most likely used at Toy Fair, when these numbers are visible.
