“Soul of Chogokin” fans, prepare to be happy.
This month’s issue of Dengeki Hobby Magazine carried blueprints for the next character in the SOC series: the long-awaited Getta Robo G!
Although the release date and price aren’t set yet, the article stated that there’s a high chance we’ll see the set before year’s end. Of course, it’ll come complete with individual Getta Dragon, Getta Liger, and Getta Poseidon robots.
Design-wise, the Getta Robo G set appears to follow close on the heels of the previously released Soul of Chogokin Getta Robo. In fact, Getta Dragon’s legs are a slighly modified version of the ones used for Getta One (with the inclusion of the pop-out fins found on the Great Mazinger toy). What’s more, the shoulder joints appear to be indentical — meaning that in all probability the Getta Robo G robots can not only combine with one another, but with their predecessors as well.
Stay tuned for more details, but one thing’s for sure: chances are it’s going to be a very Getta Christmas.
