Battle Riser

Wow. This sucker trumps my

Wow. This sucker trumps my Power Riser by a mile... I will have to track one of these down. I have a loose Battle Hackers Riser, with the dark haired pilot, but I have no armor for the suit, and you are right that the Battle Hackers pilots are terrible compared to the fantastic martial arts-robo figures.

This mech suit & it's pilot reminds me of Alec DeLeon's Recon Class E-Frame from the TV series Exosquad.

"He looks well-articulated, but is not."

"He looks well-articulated, but is not."

It would be nice to know what this means. I see universal shoulder joints, hinge elbows, kung fu grip, ball-jointed hips, double knee hinges, and hinged ankles... so how is he NOT well-articulated?

The Battle Hackers have nice

The Battle Hackers have nice double jointed knees and universal shoulders, but only have swivel hips, shallow elbow joints, a little ankle flapping, and no body movement. The Martial Arts robos blow these guys out of the water... ball jointed hips and shoulders, lots of ankle movement, body joints, and bicep swivels.

PLUS, the Battle Hackers are hideous. Bootleg-quality heads, no paint, and absurd body proportions. Just terrible. And all plastic.

Good Point, let me clarify.

Good Point, Recognizer. Let me clarify. All of those joints do move, but the figure will not stand in any position other than the one shown, and even then he tips over if you breathe on him. My bias is such that, to consider a figure "well articulated," it should hold a pose by itself. So while the figure is decent hand candy, his articulation is statically limited. I was sloppy in my characterization. I will be more precise in the future.

Ahh,Luke Stewart

Thanks to RetroRobotRadio on Youtube,Luke Stewart wears a blue space-suit and seems to be the Kirk of the Good Luck Teens who crash-landed onto the Planet B-1 while it was having a civil war between the Argos who are the Machine Robos and the Gurendos who were these green turtles known as Sitappas (Underlings),Uwappas who were the blue fly boys and their generals who are these high-school delinquent tributes and one of them is a Yakuza by the name of Yazand.

Luke and the others were pretty much the straight men to the Machine Robos. He's pretty calm and collected. I dig him but his toy looks freakin' amazing. A shame this series didn't came out outside of Japan.

He's always Akira Amachi's partner in crime when it comes to dishing out pain in the anime.
