And we close today with what is probably forcefully grabs the prize for worst model of the century, the poor Barattack by CM's.
The model is a loyalty that I would call excellent. As you can see from the picture the model perfectly represents his animated counterpart. Piccolino but being paunchy will not notice much.
In the box are [...]
Another article today about the old guard.
This Bandai Gokin 1994 may in fact be considered a precursor of subsequent lines Chogokin (non-vintage) Soul of Chogokin 1996 and 1997.
Red Baron is taken from an anime of the same year, in turn revisiting the old Tokusatsu of 1973.
The model is made of a block of [...]
And it finally came time to present the most absurd piece I've ever bought in my collecting career.
A brief historical introduction: the old line Chogokin game in 1974 had in fact three components: a component Super Robot (which is what interests us most), a component Sentai / Super Sentai (also interesting), a component of [...]
Along with its sister Yamato, Space Battleship Andromeda this marks an important innovation for Bandai: For the first time the spaceships are included in larger series Soul of Chogokin, rather than the Soul of Popynica as it was in the past.
Many have turned their noses up, but apparently the choice of Bandai has paid off, because [...]
An update a little 'different than usual for one of them (or maybe smaller?) Absent in the series Soul of Chogokin: Junior Robot (Robot Junior in the original version), the funny robot piloted by Shiro Kabuto.
The robot was one of the first Chogokin outputs for the original series, namely the sixth; is in fact released as GA-06 [...]
And finally, after 4 months from the first issue, we conclude the project Tobikage with this fantastic Bakuryu.
I would say that the series ends with a flourish; I think the Bakuryu is in fact the most aesthetically pleasing of the three, either in robotics that the transformation into a dragon.
Metal content similar to the previous outputs: the majority of the [...]
And finally comes the turn of Daitarn! Soul of Chogokin One of the most controversial of all time: some great, for others a SoC hated type of processing, differences in the sculpt with the animated series (the thighs for example), but especially for the hate straps that are broken in robot mode in a rather unsightly.
And the [...]
While they are still at the hotel ready for my last day at Lucca Comics 2010 and waiting diminishes a bit 'in the rain, here are some pictures of Daltanious.
Abstract: This is obviously not the finished SoC, but a resin prototype. We can then observe to see what has been done by Bandai, but not treat it as if [...]
Upgrade today with Gokin one of the first to come into my collection: the Marmit Devilman, taken from the animated transposition of manga considered by many to be the greatest masterpiece of the master Go Nagai.
Released in 1998 for the Heavy Gokin, the outputs of which can be counted on the fingers of one hand so far. At the time the series SoC [...]
