Chogokin fans who are sick to death of the same old slew of characters might as well stop reading this right now.
Bandai’s back in the game with a new series of retro Chogokin reissues, this time entitled (somewhat imaginatively) “The Chogokin.”
Larger than the gashapon-style “Capsule Chogokin,” yet far smaller than the “real deals,” this new series’ claim to fame is that the toys will use the same amount of diecast, and the same gimmicks, as the originals.
First up? One of the most challenging, intriguing, and innovative selections of vintage characters seen to date! Or maybe not: “Etarnal Heroes” style Mazinger Z, Robocon, and Getta One. Sigh…
Look for ’em at the end of June.
