Trendmasters Anguiruses by AlmightyRayzilla Trendmasters Anguiruses by AlmightyRayzilla
Here's my rendition of the rare (and looooooong out of production) Trendmasters toy, in both the original colors and the [even rarer] 40th Anniversary repaint colors!

A slight review of the toy, it is the epitome of the 90's, being EXTREME with a bad attitude. The toy sorta has this "hey, you talkin' to me, bucko?!" look to it, which makes him pretty ferocious looking. Sadly it didn't really get a wide, varying release, only being made in one size and in three sets, with one of them being the blue repaint.

For the drawing here, I sorta went for a "do I need to choke a bitch!?" pose. All I really left out was a cinder block for him to prop his foot on. ;p

Anguirus (C) Toho

Trendmasters fan art? Awesome. You captured TM-Anguirus perfectly.

Nice Work!

To me, Trendmasters Anguirus would make an interesting carnation of what a potential Heisei Anguirus would look like.

Same here.

A shame it only had a limited release. I'd have LOVED to have a 6-inch or even a 10-inch scale Anguirus.

Any chance we'll get the Trandmasters Megalon from you?

Oh, I'd say there's a good chance. I'm definitely wanting to do the rest of the cast now. :)

Plus, you don't see much fan art of the Trendmasters toys.

Very true, especially since its the only outlet where Biollante had 'suit-actor' legs.

I remember the Trendmasters figured quite vividly! It was the first time I was ever exposed to Godzilla as a young child growing up in the 90's!

This art looks excellent, and Anguirus looks particularly awesome! Great job!

Oh my god I love it. It was so hard to find the damn anguirus, I managed to get one when I was younger, but he was in the smaller unposable scale.

I do believe trendmasters was the first to make Anguirus blue with yellow spikes right? Take that final wars.

Huh? What kind of toy was that? Since when they made an anthro Anguirus figure? Thats pretty odd. I wonder why the decided to make him anthro. Was he suppose to be half human or something? It sure does look really cool though. You rarely see Anguirus in a bipedal stance. He definitely looks menacing and definitely has the "Do you want me to beat the shit out of you?" look. He sure would be qualified to be a bouncer for a club lol. Anyway, really awesome job Ray!! This piece is pretty badass :)

Ooooooo. Interesting. Theyre not kidding when they said it was they most muscular Anguirus ever. Its like someone injected kaiju steroids into him and hes on roid rage. Certainly a far cry from the short occassionally gentle quadpedal herbivore we all know and love. This guy looks like he wants to beat your face in lol. The bipedal stance does suit him though as well as being a hulking muscular behemoth. Sure is one badass figure. I wonder which form would be stronger? Anywho thanks for the info :)
