Review: Godzilla vs SpaceGodzilla: S.H. Monsterarts Little Godzilla and Effect Pieces

So I ordered this a year ago and had it on Pile of loot at BigBadToyStore but never got around to buying that Revoltech Ika Musume so I had it send now, It got here today. Since I didn't really have anything else to review I thought, hey, why not this. So This is Little Godzilla from Godzilla vs Spacegodzilla, the older version of Baby Godzilla from Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla (II), and I like the character's design and it was a Tamashii web exclusive so I had to have it. The price was around 45 dollars when I pre-ordered it so it was worth the price.
Look at the amount of Adorableness! The character only appeared for a while, when It was captured and saved and maybe something else when the team had visited the island. I'd say Godzilla vs Spacegodzilla is my 2nd favorite out of the Heisei Series, first being Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla. Let's get to it shall we?

Box

The box is pretty cool having a face shot of Chibi-Goji and the display window, The sides show Godzilla's name in English and the Katakana on the side, Ritoru Gojira. On the back it has pictures of Little Godzilla and some other stuff of which I can't really read yet... Soon!
The top looks like this.

Contents
So, straight out of the box it looks like this, and you can see quite a couple parts, The Figure is only a part of the set.
You get Chibi, Base Stands, other bits and the Crystals for Spacegodzilla.
 So you get this stand piece and you have to remove the bits on the side.
After that it becomes more useful, make sure not to lose those bits, you might want em back later. 
 This thing hooks up the sides of the base of the stands
 You use em like so, if you want, you get four so you could attach more if you wanted.
 You get two of the big ones and two of the small ones.
 And you use them like this.
It looks great, it makes for good displays. You can also trap Chibi in there if you want.

Figure

Chibi is adorable! So this figure captures that essence!
The figure is nicely molded and has more than a couple bits of detail and the paint is magnificent! It has quite a couple bits of articulation, none on the tail or a neck joint, then again it doesn't really do much in the movie, and remember the more articulation the less detail.
Look at those eyes, it's adorable! that short snout, oh just how adorable can you be?
It's pretty articulated and you can do quite a lot.
He's kinda tall so he'll be terrifying to your army.
D'awww! SO CUTE!
The joints on mine are a little tight, I'd recommend not forcing them, play with him gently and they'll loosen up. Of course this isn't a toy, it's a display piece, a collectors Item, and expensive one at that...
Father! Yeah he's pretty short, and Godzilla is around 6" and 6.5" "fully" erect. He's shorter than Bandai of America's 4 inch figures.
Chibi isn't quite as articulated as his father but he can move his legs to a higher distance. The torso moves a lot more nicely than on Godzilla.

Overall
There isn't really much to dislike about this figure, maybe some bubble beam parts but it does come with nice crystals, and it was also pricey but I'll forgive it.
It makes for a fantastic display piece and the bonus of the crystals so IMO: Worth it!
So it's up to you whether you want it or not, I'd say go for it! Plus doesn't Spacegodzilla remind you of a Mortal Kombat Character?... Anyways, that's the Review.
