i am wondering is the paint chips on all the metal parts battle damage if so it looks funny that there is no more on the rest of the figures except those areas, i hope it is because these are mock ups that have been handled alot and the final versions do not have the damage on them. but i have to wonder since this is the first time they are doing metal if they are able to pull off solid paint jobs that do not flake off easily
Yeah, these are the first Riobots to have diecast, and considering that their price is very close to that of the Riobot Gurren Lagann and the Riobot Tsugumori (which are all (high quality) plastic), maybe it's a signal that Sen-Ti-Nel is growing as a company and will be able to offer more content for their asking price.
I'd really like to get anyone of these two. I know nothing about Blodia, but it hits all my high marks.
Thanks for the clarification! I didn't think so either.
Well, since this is their first venture into diecast toys, I can see why the placement is a bit strange. Should've made the entire bottom legs diecast instead of just the knee armor and the tips of the feet, but diecast is diecast
I hope they make more Cyberbots figure which can be parts interchangeable with one another. That'd be awesome.
BTW, I wouldn't mind having Gourai, Raf*ga or Twinzam from Kikaioh as an action figure either.

I was really interested in this one during the prototype stages when it was first shown. But now, after seeing the actual product, I've lost all interest. The paint scheme is a little dull. Perhaps, it they went with multiple shades of red and white. The head sculpt, now that I can see it more clearly is kinda weak to me. I like the fact that it has diecast parts and the spring loaded claws are nice. The design is somewhat similar to Alteisen from SRWOG, and that was the reason I was interested. But the overall looks of this just isn't captivating to me so I am skipping this Riobot.
Yep. Blodia was playable in four Capcom games so far.
It first appeared in Armored Warror in 1994, a brawler in the vein of Final Fight and Double Dragon, which as far as I know is still an arcade exclusive.
The next year it was in Cyberbots : Full Metal Madness, a fighting game. This one was ported to the Saturn and Playstation in Japan only, though it was later made available for the Playstation 3 on the US PSN Store.
Then, as Quinjester said, it appeared in the super robot anime love letter that was Tech Romancer for the arcade and Dreamcast.
Marvel vs Capcom 1 and 2's roster featured the Blodia's pilot, Jin Saotome, who summons his giant robot for some of his special attacks.
