Neo Getter 1
Review by JoshB
This version of Neo Getter 1 is from the Shin Getter VS Neo Getter OVA, and is drastically different than the die cast version put out by Aoshima.
It is number 2 in Romando's Mechanical Romance Series, or Mecha Roman for short. Each figure is made of vinyl and plastic, and is fully articulated. It has limited articulation at the shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees and ankles.
The paint job is astounding, with subtle changes in color, and a fantastic attention to detail.
The main flaw of the figure is durability; the joints are very fragile. The soft plastic will break if you try to put into an extreme pose. The joints have limited range, and one has to wonder why the put foam between the elbow joints.
This figure is not a good value at the original retail price of Â¥3300, but you can find them all over the USA at clearance prices.
