Giant Robo (Missile Version)

Bazooka Version

Don't forget that there were two different versions of this toy made. The one shown above is the missile version, and the other is the Bazooka version. The main difference is that the Bazooka version does not have the missile inserts but instead has a giant bazooka that mounts on the backpack. The toy itself is identical, it was just a way to make more money by packaging different accessories with the same toy. Also, the Bazooka version has a different version of Ginrei included.

You kicked, I scored! Thanks.

I'm new here, and thanks to your review, I knew what I was looking at when I checked out a local collector store for the first time today. They had both versions, for the same $20. I grabbed the bazooka backpack version, and I'm glad to have it on my shelf. Great heavy, clicky robot for the bucks. Thanks NekroDave! You've activated Mysterious Underground Toy Store Magnets that may yet suck my truck(me within) back for the other one.

Wow, many thanks and welcome

Wow, many thanks and welcome to the site!

It's always nice to hear feedback on reviews, especially positive :), but it's also cool to see it on ones that are not current. It's nice to know the older reviews still get looked at and also makes it feel worthwhile to do reviews on the toys that fall into that nether region between "vintage" and "current", in the first place.

The fact that Giant Robo cannot touch his shoulders is NOT a drawback but anime accuracy!

The robot is chunky and retrograde - just look at he huge rivets adorning his body!

The toy would have been greatly ruined if Yamato used the same extending arm feature as the Aoshima Shin Seki Gokin Mazinkaiser!!!!

The animated Giant Robo is also very limited in movement.

It's already a miracle he can fly!

Oh and by the way, I made the same mistake you did - if not worse - as I did not buy it even if I had watched the anime and enjoyed it!!!!

Wow! I got lucky today and

Wow! I got lucky today and found the Bazooka version of this guy at a little collect able toy store that was going out of business. New in box under a heavy layer of dust. Mixed in with tons of obscure 90's comic book characters and 12 million McFarlane toys was this gem tucked in a box on the floor. He is a delight. Heavy. Good presense. And he looks perfect standing beside the SOC Big-O.
