Such an iconic toy. Again,

Such an iconic toy.

Again, I'm relegated to my THE Chogokin repro's... But at least I've got all three of the Getta robots and they're not bootlegs!

The thing is, I don't think the arms come off of the THE Chogokin. I love the axe gimmick--too bad you couldn't show it fully in this review.

Ref.Great Mazinga GA-05 review

Taken from my post on: Great Mazinga GA-05 review...

Sanjeev alludes to "The Chogokin" repros in that reviews comment section. I'm not aware of those so maybe Sanjeev could elaborate?

GT

Ahh- Sanjeev must be talking about Bandai's GT series of chogokins. Nice copies- slightly smaller than the original GA series.

Training Model

It is difficult to tell any difference between the comparison shots other than the gap in the shoulders-(mine does not have that issue). It would have been nice to show the right side of his body to compare. Do both versions' Right Legs have the nuts that seat in the leg joint?
So the training model I have is a boot huh? Well... it is done superbly nevertheless, right down to the 16 Toei Animation sticker on the box. I think I might like it even more now.
Did they do boots of Getter 2 & 3 -(as shown on back of box)?
Now I definitely want to track down this one and the Blue version!

These are stellar quality boots for sure- very heavy & gimmicks work well!
