Golden Week

Filed under: Toy News — Rumble Crew @ 7:34 pm

It’s the national holiday of “Golden Week” here in Japan — what better time to release a limited number of GX-01RG gold-plated Mazinger Z “Soul of Chogokin” toys? (Don’t worry: for those who missed it, it’ll be getting a wider release in the beginning of June.)

A limited number of the chrome-festooned diecasts were sold at the “Chogokin Expo 2004 Pre-Exhibition” held in Harajuku, Tokyo starting on the 25th. More interesting than the toy is the show itself — a warm-up, apparently, for a major, “official” extravaganza celebrating all things Popy to be held next year.

Will 2004 be known as the “Year of the Gokin?” Only time will tell…
