Did you invite Godzilla?

I'm loving this 1978 Sears spread featuring Hasbro Super Joe, I'm just somewhat curious as to why Godzilla from the Shogun Warriors was crowbarred into the back like that. It works though doesn't it? Little kids don't care that the toys aren't from the same lines (unless you were that really anal kid) and this scene probably got reenacted in a couple of (lucky) households.
