New desk toy...Grandpa has arrived, finally...
Nice! That's a great package for a classic Maz figure.
BBTS had a sale on some of their SOCs not long ago, so I went ahead and got him. He wasn’t all that much more than a lot of SHF figures out there, really...which is amazing considering the fit and finish and how much shit he comes with. And he’s so heavy he almost feels like he’s all diecast. It’s nutty.
It’s a fantastic Great Mazinger
Love that Great Mazinger
If Great was the Grandpa, then what does that make Mazinger Z?
It was either going to be him or GX-70 (Z). Great came with more stuff, and I honestly don’t care for the gap in Z’s chest crest. So that kinda sealed it for me. I’ve been tinkering with him and trying out the various option parts...the customization with this guy makes him a lot of fun.
By the way, who is that bot in your pic?
Lol...didn’t think about that. Grandpa Z?
Speaking of BBTS deals!
Mazinger Soul of Chogokin GX-75 Mazinkaiser
I don’t own this but I am getting close. I just don’t like Mazinkaiser.
Those wings look huge. It’s like Mazinger died, went to hell and fought his way back out. I’d have to reconfigure my whole shelf to fit him in. I need to check out some Mazinger media sometime. I know virtually nothing of the underlying fiction.
Dang, I regret missing on that sale. Will just hope that it goes back on sale by the holidays.
Wait, is this the one you bought?
Mazinger Soul of Chogokin GX-70 Mazinger Z DC
Another great one! That figure is a solid chunk of BEAST!
It was this one...but it was $40 less than the current price.
GX-73 Great Mazinger Dynamic Classic
Nice @fschuler !
Lol. What the hell is holding him up? I had a hard time deciding between the red wings and the gray ones I put on him...kinda wish the gray set were silver. The missiles are a nice touch, though.
It's standing on its own like that. Very solid joints and toy overall. Yeah, so many options and I just wish more gimmicks were built in instead of parts swapping.
Ah ok, I missed the "Great" part. Thanks! My memories are more with the original than the newer ones? I honestly can only tell by the ship in the head so I have no idea if I actually saw Great Mazinger or the regular one.
Only pic I can find right now of the og.
Crazy...just looked like he was leaning back too far to be able to stay up. I would say the joints on mine are just about perfect. Nothing is loose at all and nothing is overly tight either. The only thing I “need” is an actual rocket punch in mid-flight...might work on something like that...stay tuned...
Yeah, really nicely made figures.
Rocket punch...I got my SRCs for that
