New year, new Brog. I start my 2011-Brog-year with my darling No.1.
Rockbat. The freaky cat.
This time I want show you some detailed views of the Aoshima Rockbat
plastic model kit. I think I’ll never glue this kit together, because I ended
my modelbuilding career with 14.Â Better keep it MIB ;-)
There are a few Rockbat & Blazer model kits, to be precise 4.
Two big ones from Aoshima and 2 smaller ones from another brand.
The box is really nice. Rockbat is posing like superman.
OK, the scarf around Rockbat’s neck looks a bit strange. Parlez-vous franÃ§ais?
Inside the box: Construction manual, catalog, “guarantee” note & the plasitc kit packed in 3 bags.
This is the catalog, showing twoÂ other cool kits. Blazer and Curricular Machine.
Here is the construction manual. Looks simple…maybe I try to build the kit.
Or keep it MIB?
A big and a smaller bag for the plastic parts.
In a separate bag you find a few stickers and 2 springs for Rockbat’s rocket-punch.
Now a few action features of this unusual Rockbat.
Adjustable legs, secret chest-cover, special skateboard, axe, firing right fist…
…and instead of left fist. A spring loaded spaceship.
A spring loaded spaceship instead of a left fist!
WTF…I keep it MIB ;-)
Some more box details of the other kits.
More fotos etc in the BBS as usual.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen this black headed variation, or I just plain don’t remember.. Found this in a 1997 character daimashi. I remember when I picked it up back in the day I thought that was odd, but never brought it up. Out of sight, out of mind I guess as I probably haven’t seen it since then..
Anyway, please discuss HERE.

This is HOT! From the biggest Massholes in Mass., Brownnoize Productions (aka TBDXr Sanjeev Selvaraj and Co.) comes the first figure in their “Faux-Gokin” line. Probably the BEST Grendizer enemy of all time, GIN GIN!!! These are a limited run called “Yojimbo” and are bare antiqued solid metal with magnemo limbs.. That’s right MAGNEMO limbs. For more info you can hit them up HERE. Stay tuned for my in-depth review coming soon!
In the meantime, feast your eyes on this bad ass shot:

Submitted for your approval: An invincible guardian of world freedom with buzzsaws on his arms and breast missiles. And you thought only female robots like Aphrodite A, Diana A, Minerva X, and Venus A had breast missiles!
This was found at a local toy show in San Jose, CA last month for $20. You can find more info about all the Shogun Warrior models on offer here
