[Throwback Thursday Review] Rodzilla

Disclaimer: This is an humorous review, purposely exagerated to be funny.

Today I'll review the most epic model ever conceived by the creative brains at Mattel Inc.: The 2000 edition of Rodzilla! Forget about Exotos, Auto Worlds, Minichamps, MBX and any other peasant model. Nothing can be closer to perfection than this model.

Design and accuracy: 19/10

I can imagine. One day, at night, Larry Wood went to his bed and he had a revelation:

"For the 1988 line, I'll design the best model ever made! It'll be the dream of every child: A dragon with a V8 engine!"

And this is the result of that revelation. It's perfect replicated from his vision down to every single scale! The dragon earns a 10/10, and the engine got a 9/10 because it doesn't really work with gasoline, beign only decorative. So the total is 19/10.

Fit and Finish: 1st/10

Yes it is very fit, look at its muscles! And how it reclines and grabs its hips' wheels without giving a single f***. Plus, it always finish 1st, in every race it races, because it breaths fire and exterminates the oponents. Wouldn't you give it space if you saw this face on your mirror?

Value: 10/0 = priceless

HOW CAN YOU PUT A VALUE IN SOMETHING SO EPIC??????

Well, in 2000 my parents paid R$4,00 for it in a toy store. Besides, it's part of my "sweet 20", the first 20 models I got 15 year ago, that started my colletion.

Rarity: idk/10

I really don't know about the rarity of this model, but since it is almost 15 years old I can take it to History Channel's Pawn Stars and say it's an antique.
