SOC news

So far it's only out in Japan and HK. Hasn't arrived in Singapore yet either...
Where there is darkness there is light... Where there is evil there is justice! The emissary from the heaves, KENRYU, has arrived!

And then they all get beaten up because Kenryu is useless.
And the next SOC is...

And there was much rejoicing.
No shit, for real?? The Gods of Chogokin have answered, Godmars, New Jeeg, and now Daimos!!
GO! Mighty Orbots!

GODMARS - 28cm tall - Weighing in at 1.1kg

I'm not sure but will this Cosmo Crusher also be included?

The catch phrase for this new picture perfectly fits Gingaizer of all things. "tsugi no chogokindamashii wa kore de kimari sa" is just like the refrain of Gingaizer's theme song, "tatakai wa kore de kimari sa." Gingaizer also has a mask that flares out in a way that could match that silhouette. With Daimos I would expect the catch phrase to be something that matches Daimos, but this line doesn't seem to have anything to do with Daimos.

That godmarz looks insane!

FUCK YEAH!!! Now that's a REAL Gokin!!! He's instantly tied at the top of my most favourite Gokin list with Dancouga. GAWD. I was a bit worried at first when I saw early (uncoloured) shots of the combined mode - the thighs of the blue/yellow & black/silver robots do not get concealed (like Godsigma) and as a result, you'll see a very unsightly gap in-between each of their thighs.

However, it seems I got worried over nothing. It's certainly not bothering me at all right now. Although I do hope Bandai will release some sort of an 'outer shell' which I can add on to make the thighs more flushed & anime-accurate in the combined mode.

What a way to kick-start 2008. He's gonna' make it instantly to the top 3 spots of TOTY 2008. It's also not every time we get a toy that looks better than its anime counterpart (oh wait, but then again, there's Ideon, Iron Gear, Dancouga...). All right Bandai - try topping this next year (No, SOC Daimos is not good enough unless I can strip him down to his endoskeleton).
It looks so ffffffun. With a capital FFFFFF. I want to play with it now. When does it come out? March 'r somethin'? So boxy, yet awesome. Like a giant Volvo mecha-titan. The individual bots remind me of Albegas, but with a few leftover; including one that doesn't remind me of Albegas at all.
The toy actually looks better than the original artwork. How often does that happen?

Check out the ass shots:


I wonder how they managed to get fattie's lower legs hidden in the combined mode? They stuck out from behind on the vintage one - it was a real eyesore considering the combined looked almost perfect. This is so cool!
As always, Bandai's engineering is incredibly impressive but this design itself isn't doing much for me so I'm going to pass on buying it myself. But I will be checking out some detailed pictures of it come release time.
Really well done even though I rather get Baikaifu (and still Ideon) first. God Gaia looks the best.

God Mars is GX-40. Looks like thy some how have trouble getting Reideen out.
stuff and stuff

I think the combined God Mars looks too skinny. On the drawing he looks more powerful and more like a robot than a human in armor. Also the lower part of the legs looks weird compared to the drawing.
But I will buy it, of course.
Bigger GodMars pics downpage...

Inflate the price of fuel and food, trash the dollar, and raise the price of must-have socs to over 20,000 yen... whatta world!

Yes, god mars... yes, yes, daimos! The mind reels! The soul is weak...
Looks like Daimos might get the same ratchet ankle treatment as Baikanfu's, from the look of the blue print. This is just too good to be more unstable SOCs from now on!
looks like some of the side skirt folds up to form the sides of daimos' waist.
Did someone say "Daimos"?

I feel faint!
Any idea of how tall Daimos will be? You think it'll be the same size as Combattler V & Voltes V or will they make it smaller?

Edit. Double post.

Daimos is looking like some nice complicated engin eering porn there and Black Serena looks very nice now it's painted.
Was going to pass on BS but I might try and get one now.
I love the comparison shots between the original and the SOC Godmars.

Black Serena

That's really really nice. The mobile armour concept has always been interesting. Cool to see it well done in plastic/metal.

It seems that Reideen will have two versions. One with and one without the "God Surface Rock"

That's been long-assumed but it's good to hear it confirmed. I think the rock looks really dang cool, but I don't think I appreciate it enough to throw the extra $$ at it. Very cool option for the Reideen uber-fans though.
Why does Reideen have a surfboard?
I like the Black Serena.

Looking very nice. Can't believe how long this one has been delayed.

(scroll down)

Looks like you have to buy the one with the huge mountain and gold statue if you want white limbs. Or if you want the motorcycle dude.

Feh, I say. Feh!
Wow, Bandai knows how to rape a fan's dollars (or yen).

That's a no brainer - I'd pick the "ST" version. I would never display that mountain thingy anyway and the motorcycle PVC and white limbs are neglible, especially considering the 6615 Yen difference in price! Plus chrome limbs is consistent with the old skool aesthetic anyway (along with the rest of the "ST" SOC's). I'd use the $ I save to go towards the Daimos SOC instead!
No worries here. I have no interest in the mountain, gold statue, motorcycle dude or the white limbs. Just release the damn thing already!
I really like the mountain. Shame about the price.
