    I wasn't going to post this... but I just couldn't stop the urge to share. Finally I have a dream come true in this figure. Megazone 23 was pretty much my first true introduction to Anime. The first one I asked for by name... the first one I ever saw in it's original language. So this Garland figure is very special to me.

    It is great, but not perfect. It's a little on the delicate side, but... well worth what I paid.

    The Garland does indeed look badass. I'd love to buy one, just don't have the money in my account or the room to display it right now.

    Not only does it transform, but the rider actually fits inside it in robot mode. It's really awsome.

    Let me tell you, the figure doesn't fit all that well when transforming it. In fact, it's a bit touchy even without the figure involved.

    It doesn't help that a little cover plate that is part of hinge was broke off (right out of the box).

    The pegs that connect the hip joints into the central tire... don't exactly fit well. One side of mine fits great... while the other side goes in only a bit beyond half way (no matter how hard I push it in).

    All that being said.... the damn thing looks beautiful !

    As for price... if BBTS still has some instock, they were selling them for around $100. Other sites were offering them in the $150 range. Haven't check ebay.... you might find some deals.

    ...but I think it's a bit to expensive to be used for kitbashing.

    Wow, he's a LOT bigger then I expected. :eek:  So what's the size of the figure? Could he fit Marvel Legends figs?
