    Yeah, tell me about it.

    And while you've all been drooling over a potential SoC GaoGaiGar, you missed out on this one also coming out in 2014.

    Had to bite the bullet on SRC GGGG. Seems like every time I try to trim down the collection something like this has to happen. As for SoC GGG, looks like I better start saving.

    And here's the really wonderful thing to put a capper on the SoC GGG affair:

    With some tweaking they might could get a GaoFighGar out in the same year.

    So...SoC GGG and GFG both in the span of a few months.

    Looks tiny. SoC should be 10-12" tall

    What's the difference between GGG and GFG for those who haven't watched the anime?

    The difference lies in the torso. GGG main body is a mecha lion, GFG main body is a futuristic space plane. Both the mecha lion and space plane are capable of transforming into bipedal bots; the lion bot is sentient, whereas the space plane is just a soulless machine.

    A shame it took bandai this long to give GGG the SoC treatment; The popularity of SRC GGG probably played a key role in this decision-making.

    Uh, the difference between the two is everything. It's not just a "bit of tweaking". GaoFighgar is an entirely different robot from head to toe, that only happens to look similar to the original.

    Drill Gao II is more angular in appearance, and features drills with a telescoping function and counterspinning bores (the drills expand into three segments, with the central portion spinning counter to the other two). Liner Gao II is a rocket ship rather than a bullet train. Stealth Gao III streamlines the features of Stealth Gao II, taking the big engines from the latter and internalizing them, making the unit no bigger than Stealth Gao I.

    Then of course, the central robot, Gaofar, is an Earth-built substitute for Gaigar.

    I'm okay with GGG's size, if the SRC GGGG is about 6.5 inches then SOC GGG has got to be at least 8.5-9.5inches tall. With Bandai's engineering it should kick the CM's ass across the galaxy.


    ANYWAYS... I know everyone is gushing over GGG , but the prototype for the Metal Build ARX-8 from Full Metal Panic was also shown. AND man if this guy comes with this stand and all of the pilot figures...............I won't have pants left.

    I foresee more Brave Mechas being given the SOC treatment. A Soc king J-der would be great, it would complement the SoC Iron Gear perfectly.


    Well, Bandai could do a repaint for each mold; the typical gold and green versions. GGG completionist are gonna be so broke.
