Shin Mazinger Series Intro
The Styrofoam box is the same as the Px-01 Pileder, down to the "Z" logo up front.
Manual. It's a bit of a problem to get the base sticker out since the bag is heat-sealed, so you have to cut open the bag to get to the sticker.
New Koji is a repaint of the old figure (with white helmet now!) with "palms down" hands. The new Koji has a problem standing up due to the left leg being somewhat "bow-legged", it took some fixing with hot water to soften the leg and reposition it before I could make it stand properly, a friend of mine also has this problem with his figure. This was not an issue with the Px-01 Koji.
Comparisons with the Px-01 Hover Pilder
Notable differences : -Different shade of red and silver paint -New front grill -New protruding metal portion near the canopy -New control panel -Red painted propeller wings -Koji's helmet is now white and his uniform is lighter colored.
Not bad, it's not exactly a complete reissue. The only real problem would be how difficult it still is to get Koji inside the pilot's seat. I almost popped his head off and the gun on his hip still gets in the way when he's sitting down (sigh.. "10 years of SOC Engineering!" and we still get this oversight...).
I got mine last week. It's a bit smaller than I thought, but I still like it! When I was a kid, I loved the Pileder as much as Mazinger himself, but I never bought the original version (PX-01). I bought this one and I find it perfect, it's a keeper!
mojacko: mighty quie over here...not much discussions going on.

S_Gokin: i really dont recommend it (unless you found it dirt cheap) both Arkham asylum and Arkham city are bad, story wise and gameplay, didnt try Arkham knight yet, but im not sure i will, if they kept all of those annoying things from the early games

mojacko: think its a hype thing i dont see it will last through the ages its like a re invention of the head knockers thing.

mojacko: i doubt the value will sky rocket when the hype dies out.
