Just as a warning to anyone looking to buy this figure - DON'T!
[Fellow board member gpa was kind enough to pick one of these up for me at a local store. Thanks again, dude!!! ]
I just received Choryujin today. Sadly, now that I have the guy, I wish I never got him.
He looks great next to my collection of Revoltech figures (similar style, with Yamaguchi's defining exaggerated sculpting), but I was shocked about five minutes after I had him out of the packaging when the damned thing BROKE! I tried to plug in one of the pegs from his foot stands when the entire foot just ripped clean off. It basically crumbled in my hand. And when I placed him down on the table to attempt to glue the foot back on, the OTHER foot just came rolling off. I couldn't believe it! I was super gentle with this thing, too. What a piece of junk! Gah! I'm going to attempt to glue both feet back on and never EVER pose him again. He's basically a tiny, fragile statue with garbage for articulation. Ah well. At least the little Volfogg that comes with him is nice.
They have been popping up on ebay fairly cheap lately. I picked one up, Mine does not seem to have any QC issues. like everything about it except I wish there was more face detail. The neck joint seems half as compared to so many toys I have owned by this company. Other than that, its fairly solid. Looks good with GGG.
I remember seeing these in a comic store several years ago but I kept passing cause I hoped they would remake them in the same scale they made of the jinki Extend figure, which is still one of my favorite kaiyodo figures even today. Robot museum was a good series and could have expanded tobe so much more. I feel like it was the grandfather of the revoltech line. The scale is simular, and the sculpts was of course done by Yamaguchi.
