The GX-08 Aphrodai A (commonly known as Aphrodite) is the first of four female
robots to be introduced into the Soul of Chogokin line. She features a fair
amount of diecast, incredible articulation, and best of all, breast missiles.
Aphrodai A comes with 4 sets of breast missiles: small size (2 sets),
large size, and a set to give the impression that she is out of missiles. The
large set can be attached to long missile bodies that can be held by Mazinger
Z. All accessories store on the base. The base also includes a stand that attaches
to Aphrodais' waist to make sure she doesn't topple over.
Aphrodai A is a great toy, but she is not without flaws. Metal joints touch
other metal which can result in scratched paint. The clear dome on her head
falls off easily. Bandai also did not include any variant hands. Still, she
is a great toy and looks great with the other Mazinger SOCs.
Aphrodai A was released January 2002, for a cost of Ã‚Â¥ 3,675.
In 2004, Bandai is releasing a new version of Aphrodai A, GX-08a, from the
Mazinger Angels series.
