Here's a nifty little piece from my collection that I thought I'd share with you all, One of the all time classics designed by super robot legend Go Nagai and given form by the masters over at Bandai The SOUL OF CHOGOKIN GX-02R GREAT MAZINGER.
One of my all time favorite robot designs, this baby looks like it just jumped out of the TV screen.
This guys chest, torso, waist, arms from the shoulder to elbow & Legs from hip to knee are made out of die-cast making this one hefty robot.
Double driller flying fist!
Here's a nifty little backpack that shows his jet pack in non flight mode.
Bazow! ready for take off!!
(notice the little leg fins on his heel that pop out for flight mode)
A little flexing before take-off. The backpack adds a heft and color to the whole design.
(I love the flaring forearms and hips, early 80's robot chick)
Here's his long range space "scrander" for off world missons.
(Slightly bigger that the jet scrander it has a neat 60's jet plane look)
Ready for takeoff.
Here he is on his stand with all of his bits and pieces
(minus the space pack to give you a better view )
He actually came with Two swords, one of which I game to Mazinger Z.
If you collect any sort of die-cast super robots, this bad boy should be one of the linchpins in your collection.
Next week we'll feature the SOUL OF CHOGOKIN GX-41 RAIDEEN.
