With the release of the new anime series Shin Mazinger Z Bandai, in addition to production of the recent gx-45, took the opportunity to resurrect the now defunct Soul Of Popynica years with the production of a new Pilder (with lots of code brand new, PX-04) inspired by the features that the aircraft has the new board.
The box has dimensions and Bandai does not disappoint this time either, as the Pilder years ago and has remained Hover GDP der. Opening it clear from the start that they were invited so I do not know how pleasing to the fair recycling, polystyrene blister and base are in fact exactly those of the px-01.
The figurine of Koji's cute but apparently cared less that the px-01.
We come to Pilder: main differences compared to the first version are relative to the nose (most prominent), the upper boundary of the cockpit (which has a protrusion absent in the px-01), the curvature of the glass (less accentuated in this model) and the upper margin of the central fin (parallel to the ground and not tilted).
The other most obvious difference is the coloration, with a shade of red darker than the red fire of the px-01 and a higher monochromaticity due to the fact that in this case are red colored also supports the blades. Live the color is still very nice, much better than in the photos.
But sorry to see that, not to make a new mold, Bandai has kept unchanged the rear of the aircraft without changing the features as it should (for which there is a grid, typical of the first Pilder, that this revision should be omitted).
In short, a good product since it departed from the mold of a beautiful model, but in the end, a hybrid that is neither 'meat it' fish not having it perfect relevance 'to the classic version it' to that of the renewed Pilder.
To buy if you want it, without doing follies.
