For those whom missed out the Aoshima Shin Getter (original colour) and does not want to pay $200+ on Ebay, here is the next best thing: Weather version will be out on Sept . The only question is: which wing type will it be :rolleyes:

Oh, and I forgot the neo Getter Weather Version too. I kind of like it, the original non weather scheme was a bit flat for me (l like the sparkle version better, though). Then we are told that there will be the black version of Neo Getter follow soon. Aoshima is killing us....

Any more news on the special Berserker SOC Eva-01, wether it's out or if it's available to pre-order guys?

Anyone here gonna go grab it? Perhaps the new movie version SOC Evas will have some decent extras?

I am pretty sure it is out, I think I have seen them on Yahoo JP. But do you really want to get the Spec knowing the groin problem??

Hmm, so you think they would not have fixed that by now? k.

Well i sure hope the new SOC line will be fixed, seeing how they look very similar to the recently released new line of SOC Evas....

Anyone getting the new SOC movie version Evas?

just take some out and say you need to wipe them down for dust or something and then add in the new ones

i jus got the zanbot too its still boxed and I'm waiting on the getter set to arrive any day now.

if they do the gx-04 and gx-04b grendizer and the boss borot gx-10b then I'll be super happy.

Hey Guppy & M73, does the re-issue Zambot have a better ankle design 9so it can pose better)? I heard there was an issue with the posability of the 1st release.

Guppy, surely the women can't tell the difference between a Getter and a Zambot, to them they all look red, just like the way we don't keep track of their shoes...lol.... :blink:

Well I'm not sure of the old version's issues but it can have its feet in an A-stance with the feet planted on the ground. Hip articulation is pretty shameful though.

and you're right Mowe - I've had it out on the coffee table all week and wife has said nothing.. She thinks its my Combattler or Voltes toy.. hehe.

I got the getter set today and opened up the ingram 1 & 2 pretty cool figure. my friend has my camera so no pics <_<

I really havent tested out the pose-ability of the ingram but its heavy and looks great. and nope still haven't opened the zanbot ....hold on .....well the ankles dont really move around , he can tap his foot , but ankle movement is limited. overall its a cool figure i imagine its the same as the 1st release.

not that i know what that was like

Hey guys, I just heard that the Dynamite Mazinger is really not the best built toy out there. Somebody on robot Japan said double sided tapes were used on the fist :blink:

for those that are interested HLJ has posted a pre-order for the next version of dynamite Gohkin Mazinger

yes and no. the inner body is die cast . the head shoulders and so on are all vinyl/plastic so its more of a kit. it includes double sided tape to keep the upper arms , fore-arms , thighs , and lower leg from sliding up and down. the head fits onto a ball joint and has some movement. the fists and feet also attach to a ball joint . See the pic and check post 512 of this thread I like the figure. as far as die cast content yes it doesn't have a lot. but the figure does look nice and its one i dont mind picking up on a regular bassis b/c i cant tarnish any metal and its fun to play with

I really like mine, he is has great articulation and can do some cool poses, much more than SOC versions. But he feels more like an action figure, but still reasonably heavy its a great combination. Most of the inner skeleton is diecast and it works very well when you add the adhesive strips. Bigger than SOC versions too, he looks cartoony like the manga, but cool.
