I hope a jet version is included as well for Shin Getter Dragon...Since its been ages. Where the hell was the Command ship for Getter G series?

...
Just a small pic of the Swordfish proto. Nothing astoundingly awesome yet.

Getter Dragon is a must buy for sure.
Yeah, Getter Dragon is awesome. Combattler still looks... well, like Combattler, which never does much for me.

Holy Shit!!! Im so excited about that Shin Dragon. I might even pick up that sword fish. Ive only seen the Cowboy Beebop movie but I gotta say its a really cool ship design.

That Dragon as noted is a super must buy!!!!

Watch the show. The movie doesn't even come close to doing the show justice.

Interesting colours on the Energer.. also I'm failing to see how the Combattler is 'all new'.. looks identical to the original one..

Double also, now that you've said Getter Dragon has a stache, I see him in a completely different light.. It looks weird.
If they're all the way up to SoC 51 coming in December whatever happened to Daitarn 3?
Daitarn 3 is still in the works. Will be released probably spring or summer 2010.

That's some nice stuff coming up.

I ordered an SOC SPEC XS-01R Eva-01. I have 00 Kai so I know what to expect but I've been in an Eva kick lately and I never got a figure for any line of the 01 so might as well get the best one that's out.

Now that they did the OVA version of Dragon, I hope they do the OVA version of Lyger.

--------------------------------------------------------------

I asked if I have "Time For L-Gaim" but I got "No Reply From The Wind".
I love the colors on the new Energer Z. I still haven't gotten the damned 1st one.

DAMN...that new Dragon is fucking tight. And I know Getter Dragon never had a rocket punch gimmick, but I want something to shoot on this toy, damnit.

The only thing I didn't like about the new Mazinger SoC is that you still have to swap out the forearms to give him the rocket punch. Unless/Until they integrate shooty fists with articulated (non-removable) elbows, they haven't arrived.
I for one dig Bandai's "shooty separation." I like shooty fists and missiles, but I also like being able to bash my bots about with utter abandon -- without a care for accidental projectile ignition.

Wow that Dragon looks thick and chunky. I cant wait to hold for that. I also hope they do Lyger and Poesidon

Yeah? Well, whadda you know? You don't like shit coming outta yer cock!
Nuh-uh! I never said that. I like shitting out my cock plenty. I'm young and hip and poop out my wang way more than you do. Now stop playing ball so close to my gardenias! All this running about upsets the soil pH.

Chrome! And Burning breast plates! And angry eyes!

And ...dark metallic grey insteada' black?

Tamashii limited item?



Strangely, I find myself liking all the Mazingers in the current deluge.

OH god thats cool. I may buy that over the normal version. Got a release date and a price?
Oh I hope that's not limited. I'd get that.

AHH! Thanks for that comparison shot of the Combattler.. It definitely looks like something of interest now.. also GX-45A looks hella awesome..

Energer Z, Big O, possibly the new Combattler and now this new Maz! DAMN IT DAMN IT DAMN IT..

Sometimes I think a drug addiction would be cheaper..

That's the "Atami Nights" version, being sold from October 2-4 at the Autumn Tamashii Nation 2009 event. 6,500 yen.... At the show. These tend to go through the roof after, though.
Figures. The coolest looking version almost always end up as limited releases.

Altho from what I see, there is a tiny window, near the show and just after, when you can usually get something like this close to retail price. It's only if you poop around and wait that the prices soar.

So, is 'Atami Nights' a play on 'Kanjite Knight' from the first OP to Shin Mazinger?
i wonder why they dont release the devil wings, so you can "upgrade" your shin maz to the upcoming shin maz.
It's because GX-45 and GX-49 are two completely different figures. The one that comes with the God Scrander (devil wings) has a opening chest for the head to fit in and slots on it's legs for the Scrander to attach too and so on. It might fit if you just attach it and not transform it to the giant fist but that'll be it.

Atami is the name of a place where events in the series occur.

the series.

Which is really weird by the way. Saw the first episode the other day and yeah what a jumbled mishmash.

I can probably presume that the Atami Maz, being limited and all, will it also be limited in its accessories?

Episode one is an episode length trailer for the rest of the series. Story begins with episode two.
bleh.. double click

Ohhhh.. *smacks forehead with palm* That's a weird way of doing things..

Thanks
Check it. The second opening for the Shin Mahjinga show: [www.youtube.com]
Im not sure if someone asked or answered, but is this going to get a US release like Mazinkaiser.
Speaking of US release SOC's, I've been meaning to ask: How or from who are retailers like comic shops supposed to be able to order the imported figures? I wanted to get Shin Maz from my local comic shop, but they looked in the Diamond ordering thing and couldn't find anything.

Isn't this deal through Toynami, not Diamond? I've heard of something called Previews as being something used to order the figures through, if that means anything to your local shop guys.
I just bought a GX-45 last night at a Hastings Entertainment o.O Caught me completely off guard. I've seen various anime figures and a few Revoltech toys, but to find an SOC was shocking.
