I finally got my grubby otaku paws on Ken. While it has some flaws due to the design aesthetics, this toy has presence. The BEST Gatchaman toy yet! That said, I may wait until G-2 goes on sale or something. I don't think I can convince myself to justify the price tag with my overall impressions.
Bottom line - I love it, but really would love for Bandai or Max Factory to take a crack at Gatchaman figures.
I have Ken, but, as long as there is no Jun, Jinpei and Ryu there will be no Joe in my collection!
I was super excited and was gonna order one, but beyond Ken and Joe there's nothing right? I just kept thinking that they had to make the whole team and .... So I didn't order Ken and still no Joe. just some wasted potential for a Gatchaman team
I just saw that Knight Tekkaman is up for preorder on HLJ. I think that this figure mold just doesn't work. It was great with Casshern and Hurricane even with Gatchaman but now ... it just doesn't look good.
Well, still no for Joe G2 as long as there is no G3, G4 and G5 (at least) prototypes! However, the Infini-T Force teaser forced me to buy Tekkaman, Polymar and Casshan & Friender... and, I actually never watched their shows before (I am, currently). This is my substitute for the incomplete Science Ninja Team Gatchaman figures.
Darn. I was hoping these magnificent figures would garner more interest which will lead to the production of G3, G4 and G5.
Well, until this day I cannot find a complete satisfying Gatchaman team action figures yet! The Sentinel Fighting Gear is awesome but incomplete. However, my substitute for now is the Infini-T Force team + Friender figures. I even ordered the Winter Festival Limited Edition figures, today!
