I think the limbo pic really says how much Grendizer's torso articulation has improved over Mazinger's, quite impressive indeed. The spazer definitely has a filer piece for the undocked mode, it's not that bad I guess. The main draw here is the anime accurate docking, nice feature. The rear thrusters look very nice (CM's are a looking a bit too big I think) I'm more dubious about the overall docked look. First there's that ugly peghole on the back of Grendizer which will be a real eyesore. Then proportion wise, it looks much more unbalanced than the other recent renditions (CM's Gokin being the best ever made to this day in my opinion) as Grendizer's head is so small compared to the spazer and the harikens are not angled inwards on the back as they should be. Anyway I'll get this set as soon as POs are open, just nitpicking on this because I'll display it in some cool action pose as any SRC should be anyway!
gravewolf: Go Nagai has made a new Grendizer! Grendizer Giga manga launching in September!

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".

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.
