Due to the incessant promotion by Bmecha on this new line of toy from Bandai, I decided to give it a go and well lets just say for someone like me who seldom buy completed mecha figures this is one helluva a toy to have 😛 First up is the box art, I loved it! Simple and slick.
The back of the box art. The rocket punch effect, extra giant size (forget the name) arm and Wings at the bottom right are sold separately.
This is what you’ll get straight out of the box.
The articulation I must say is pretty decent for this incarnation of Mazinger Z. The shoulders are double ball jointed which enables Kouji san to pull of all those crazy moves. Looks like he is just warming up straight out of the box.
Pretty nice articulation for the arms.
Able to kneel quite nicely. But argh, that seamline on the leg..luckily its not that obvious from the front 😛
This one gets a plus point from me. The arm joints are covered with this extra layer of metal, a very nifty idea instead of having exposed joints like those in find in revoltechs.
The additional hands can be changed via part swapping. The hands are actually more of a rubbery type of material than metal. Now for some action shots!
Even up close, the paint job is slick! Love the metalic red!
For the first release, this extra little Styrofoam rock can be used for your Mazinger Z
Beats just standing on my table 😛
For those who are wondering how big is this baby, as a size comparison, its about the same as my RG gundam ^^
If this is Bandai’s answer to revoltech I am so switching over to this line. Not only is it smaller in scale but the paint job is so much better except for a few spots 😛 So anyone of you have this Mazinger yet? What are your thoughts about this new line? Can’t wait for Mazinger SKL and Altisen coming out soon!!
Till the next post!
