Since someone with lots of authority in Bandai is being an A-Hole and not moving forward with releasing the SRC MAzinger Weapons Set Ver.2, I decided to make my own set. Here is a picture of the prototypes:
I'm also working on modifications to the Jet Scrander, and also finished a new, more proportionate head for the SRC Great Mazinger.
I still have hopes of Bandai getting of their a$$ and releasing the official set, but until then these will do just fine... ;D

- nice, very nice. where that Jet Pilder comes from? it looks really good, almost official if i do say so. - how did you do that drill missle compartment? - so your modifying the Jet Scrander? - a new head for Great Mazinger, which one do you mean? the one that you show us or is this a new entire head?
crossing fingers you do the Great Booster for GM, he needs it XD
I'm thinking if you wanted a Great Booster for your SRC Great Mazinger if you could find a loose one from the SOC version it would look pretty nice with a few mods. The SRC Mazingers are a bit on the stylized side so a bigger than normal Great Booster would fit in with that design edict.

Thanks bro! I used Alumilite molds and resin, and Tamiya paints. However, as hard as I tried, I could not match the dark blue metallic paint 100% with the SRC's. It would either turn too dark or to light. Oh well, is not like I have a toy factory full of sophisticated toy building machines anyway... ;D
I haven't started with the casting of the Great Mazinger head version 2 yet. But it is on top of my to do list.
TaurusOxford: It would fix them to some degree, since you can choose "large thumbnail" once you have the images uploaded to imgur. It would still be a sh*tload of images, but at least it wouldn't break the forum tables and you can see the whole image.

blitzkriegomega: So...my random question that will never get answered. is there ANY robot you would want in a MODERN Gokin/Figure/Model Kit that has NEVER gotten such treatment before? and what line would you want it in? and by modern, I mean anything made AFTER GX-01.
Aug 7, 2014 18:14:25 GMT -5
blitzkriegomega: and no, resin kits/conversion sets DON'T count. it has to be an official release.
Aug 7, 2014 18:28:26 GMT -5
TaurusOxford: I'll answer it, although i'm not sure it would count. SRC Dragonzord. Yes I know it has figure from '93 and the Legacy version, but I want an actual figure, not a brick.
Aug 7, 2014 22:14:38 GMT -5
blitzkriegomega: the cutoff is 1997, and if the Legacy is just a reprint of the original, it counts as needing a Modern figure.
Aug 7, 2014 22:31:50 GMT -5
TaurusOxford: The Legacy is a complete redo of the '93 toy(much like how the 2010 Megazord is a redo of the old '93 Megazord). No SRC for me.

blitzkriegomega: sorry to hear that ;w; if it makes you feel any better, I can't say Getter Go (TV Ver) even though it's in desperate need of a toy because of the Revoltech of the Manga Version, which may as well be the same thing.

tetsuryu: God Mazinger.
Aug 10, 2014 23:43:36 GMT -5
blitzkriegomega: God Getter could also apply :3 but yeah, what did it have? an 80s Gokin with swivel arms?

gravewolf: Go Nagai has made a new Grendizer! Grendizer Giga manga launching in September!
Aug 20, 2014 1:49:21 GMT -5
magengar: It won't be long before we see an anime of Grendizer Giga. Hopefully it would look anything dark like the artwork in the Shin Mazinger series.

jmc: Thank you for the kind words. As of right now I just put a repro red sticker on the chest but I think I agree with you about leaving the paint and not more stickers. However , part of me still likes the silver midsection sticker with the black lettering.
