Wave W.H.A.M.! HELLDIVER type 99 Airborne Assault Labor from Patlabor the Movie

1/48 scale works out to be 6.5 inches tall, which is not huge. That's been the major issue of contention with this Wave WHAM figures - the price to size ratio. At about 14,800 yen, or about $150 USD, you get a six inch tall ABS and PVC figure. That's right, no metal.

Still, it looks awesome! Features opening visor, removable gear that attaches via magnet, and opening air brakes. Due September 2009.

  1. $150.00 for this is a joke and sadly everything "robotish" seems to be ridiculously priced nowadays. CM's Panzer Galiant is $170.00 and all it can move are it's arms? Believe me, I love robots - all you have to do is look at my Macross Ben-wah balls collection to know it - but shit's become so crazy old "soul of chogokin" are suddenly on the affordable side!
