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.
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.

magengar: Wish we could have a way to edit our PMs with late editions after they've been sent, especially when addressing a group of peers... that way it doesn't become a long dragged out multipage PM "thread".

TaurusOxford: A new Mega Man X figure is coming. Get hype folks.

recca74: All I want for Christmas is SOC GGG, PG Unicorn, and a pizza! Not the guy from GGG!

TheMazingerZ: blitz... you mean GOKIN. CHOGOKIN is the Mazingers Super Alloy.
Oct 16, 2014 15:17:47 GMT -5
blitzkriegomega: I thought chogokin was just any robot figure with die-cast in it, while Gokin is for non-mecha.
Oct 17, 2014 16:27:08 GMT -5
TheMazingerZ: nope, GOKIN is DIECAST. Chogokin is Mazinger based.
Oct 20, 2014 18:23:53 GMT -5
magengar: And "Chogokin" is also like a pet-name for some of Bandai's diecast toy lines, since Mazinger-Z seems to start those robot toy lines.
