    "In the 80's having a figure with more than 5 points of articulation was a revelation, you 90's kids don't know how lucky you were!"

    Micronauts and Microman (which GI Joe ARAH borrowed their articulation design and scale from) had MORE articulation than any of these during the 70s and even before Star Wars came along,, thanks to Takara's toy inventor Iwakichi Ogawa, creator of the "o-ring" and 3 3/4" (or more precisely, the 10cm) action figure format back in Japan in 1974 (resized and redesigned from the Hasbro 12" GI Joe-based Henshin Cyborg series, so it goes full circle, too!). Five points of articulation? Well let's see...

    Neck ball joint.
    2 rotating swivel shoulders.
    2 swivel elbows
    2 rotating wrist cuffs
    2 ball jointed wrists
    1 O-ring articulated waist
    2 ball jointed hips
    2 swivel jointed knees
    2 rotating spats/ankle "cuffs"
    2 ball jointed ankles

    The rotating cuffs are somewhat redundant as they are used to attach the ball joints to the limbs but even if we don't count those, we're talking 16 points of articulation on a 3 3/4" series of figures from the SEVENTIES. :D

    You kids keep getting on my damn lawn... ;)

    They seem to be finding me. I'm like the strange airplane related battery operated toy orphanage.

    I love the fact that you're building a bit of a collection of horrible stuff like this, even if it's not entirely your doing. Someone needs to show these toys some love.

    I love seeing stuff like this! Thanks for posting it up. I'd never heard of this before. The bit about Toho doesn't surprise me in the least, though. They're pretty notorious for cracking down on stuff like that. Out of all the "Creepy Classics" figures that could be found at dollar stores a couple years ago, Godzilla is far and away the rarest because Toho complained and they had to be pulled from shelves. :(

    Wow, this figure dates back to my year of birth. It's fascinating to see how toys have gone from this to super-articulated Revoltechs and SHF's

    Tempting LOL, but no thank you. I have given up collecting and haven't added anything to my collection in about a year......also if I got Mortdred I would have to try and get all the others back for the complete collection. I seen the Skyclaw review.

    Great review. Looking forward to getting mine, then not being able to open it for six months due to other stuff I have to review!

    This figure looks cool. Even though I haven't seen any of the Macross series (They're on my To-Watch list) I still want this figure. Unfortunately, I don't have the money to get it.

    What's with the random spider man display photo?

  • This ship should have been transformable. It's just one of those designs that looks like a transformer yet it didn't.

    I don't know anything about Raideen, but it seems to me that "Raxephon" was one of the first anime of the mid-to-late '90s to attempt to imitate the tone and visuals that made "Neon Genesis Evangelion" such a controversial success. "Genesis of Aquarion" and "Brain Powered" were a few others, though I'm sure there are more that escape me at the moment.

    i might be selling my skyclaw with mortdred, i did a review for that set last week if you`re interested?

    Cindarr was the last Visionaries figure I bought when I got back into collecting in 2004. I never got around to completing the set with Mortdredd and the Sky Claw.
    ''Horn of Unicorn, claw of Dragon'', was a good episode with Cindarr and Lexor.

    "In my opinion Raxephon is the true successor to Raideen, more so than the “official” re-imaginings of Raideen itself."

    I agree with the author's opinion. :)

    If it weren't so pricey, I'd like to see a color scheme closer to that of Raideen just to see...

    Were the hips on backwards on your figure? Also, my figure doesn't have the serial number problem.
