That is so cool! How rare is it? I've never even heard of it before!

Diener figures of all kinds are quite common loose since they were given out as premiums in McDonald's Happy Meals in addition to being sold by Diener both loose and as rack toys through traditional toy channels.





I'm not sure how common or scarce they are in unopened box/new old stock form.

Monsterrific magic slates are tough to find. This Beetlejuice one from 1990 is the best I can manage on short notice:

Mattel Godzilla( the Godzilla in this photo is not mine. Mine is not available at the moment. All I need is the box)

The Mattel Godzilla is a fun toy. Here's my Rodan. I don't have his box, though...

Is Rodan part of that same Mattel Shogun Warriors series?

A couple of fantastic Shogun Warriors on display here, I'd really love one of them but I'm not sure it's going to ever happen. Still, it's nice to see some of there people's collections  :D

People generally consider Mattel's Rodan to be part of the Shogun Warriors line, but actually he's a stand-alone figure. On his box it says he's part of The World's Greatest Monsters series, although Rodan is the only figure in this line that they made. Godzilla is part of the Shogun Warriors line and Rodan is a great companion piece for Mattel's Shogun Godzilla. I wish they did make more World's Greatest Monsters. I would've loved to see a big Mecha Kong or a King Ghidorah, or Mothra.

I don't have the box for my Rodan, but I do have the instructions...

Which other Shogun Warriors did Mattel make then?

Mattel's SHOGUN WARRIORS line were actually a bunch of different big robot characters from Japanese cartoons and manga like Mazinger, and Gaiking, and Raideen, that were repackaged and sold in the U.S. In Japan they had many more giant robot characters that weren't remade by Mattel. So, Mattel took a bunch of Japanese toys and put them together and called them SHOGUN WARRIORS. The Japanese kids actually had many more giant robot toys calle jumbo machinders,  that Mattel didn't make in their Shogun line.
