I actually like these the best comparing to the SOC GX-06, the D.C. Version, and the evolution toy version. Especially Getter 2, love that interpretation. Perhaps the paint job has to do with some of it too, 5 Pro paint job always seem to be so vibrant and glossy.
Oh yeah. They seem to do amazing paint. Those lacquers just glow and gleam. (Granted they are probably incredibly toxic to apply and banned in a ton of countries these days... you just can't get good paint around here anymore.)
Damn, I am thinking of cancelling my order for GX-74 in favor of this. The chest on the GX-74 bugs me as the Getter Energy windows on the chest are one solid color unlike the 5 Pro Studio, paint looks way better too and LED eyes? Oh yaassssss!

Sentinel DOES look good.
It has its Sentinel signiture look and has couple of qirks but no doubt...its a quality piece. Are they STILL on SALE at AmiAmi? Those Getters dont deserve that kind of treatment. It needs tobe on every Getter, and diecast robot fans' shelves. I just dont get why its not selling out especially at that insane price....its wrong, just WRONG.
Amiami finally cleaned out the Sentinel Getters. Got myself one a few months back for 7000yen I think. I don't know if Sentinel's looks way better, but sure can pose more dynamically thanks to the engineering. But the 5 Pro is more true to form as it appeared in the show.Like most Riobots, Sentinel's Getters are stylized to an extend, especially the head.
KumaStyle.com (TJ): It's a fair statement. The MP official line has been a q.c. dice roll for years and I feel like MP-44 was such a big release that no one could avoid that elephant in the room anymore after it turned out to be a mess but I'm glad the community is

getterjehuty: Isn't the Perfec Effect Leonidas have loose joint legs?

KumaStyle.com (TJ): at a point where they are vocal about it... and the PerfectEffect Leonidases literally have a loose everything. Even if they're half decent out of the box they seem to just go to heck sitting on a shelf after a bit and unfortunately it's pretty universal.

getterjehuty: THis is my opinion but the issues of mp-44 are the knees and the paint. You have to be really careful or the paint will scratch. It is near the abdomen area side.

getterjehuty: I need to ask, KumaStyle. What is your favorite EX Gokin Fewture Robot?
May 4, 2020 16:45:29 GMT -5
KumaStyle.com (TJ): I agree on the issues and those compounded with how incohesive the aesthetic is compared to the third party offerings that came out around the whole time was just.... ugh. Ref EX Gokin: That's a tough call and I honestly don't really think I have a

KumaStyle.com (TJ): favorite in terms of look and quality because it was a very consistent line for me in that regard but if someone put a gun to my head and said choose now I'd probably go with the original release Getter Dragon. I think it has

KumaStyle.com (TJ): the perfect mix of homaging the original design but having Sato's signature stylization while the build and articulation were pretty tops. I feel like it has the most crossover appeal to those wanting something more faithful while not having any

KumaStyle.com (TJ): little finicky parts that will fall off during handling like some of the others do.

getterjehuty: Mine is Reideen or Shin Getter. I love their designs
May 4, 2020 17:31:07 GMT -5
KumaStyle.com (TJ): Yea. Shin Getter is up there for me as well. Probably my favorite visually but it's definitely not one I like handling at all anymore.
