So as the thread says... did Popy make the die-cast have a golden tint to it on purpose for the GA-78 or was it some kind of accident? I note that this version often has a lot more oxidation on the arms than photos I see of the silver arm GA-78 or the Shogun Warrior version. Does anyone know the background?
As an aside, I do have the golden arm version of GA-78 and I've always thought that Dangard Ace is one of the best looking standard chogokin Popy made. I'm not so fond of the GA-79 DX version as something is wrong about the proportions and the floppy wings that always move... though I understand why people want it. If I could someday afford the Jumbo Dangard Ace I'd gladly own, its also impressive compared to its brethren.
Anyway, back to the question... any answers? Are there other examples of this color of die-cast from Popy?
Can you post a pic of your golden arm version next to a standard? And which box did it come in? There were 2 Dangard st box versions.
I'll try to post a pic later... but its not a huge difference, its just the arms have a slight gold tint to the matte metal. If its next to the silver matte arm version then you notice the difference. Its the Japanese version, I don't know if the Shogun Warrior version has that variant. I doubt it.
