If you liked Minerva X...

... in its 09 version, then I recommend the Black Minerva kit from Bandai. A great piece of the same character in its dark/goth winged version. Same quality, very beautiful paint work and including articulated dark wings. Mmmh, I putted a pic in my gallery as far as I remember...

Minerva Black

Thanks for the heads up! I saw that version as well and it looks great, Hopefully I can pick one up soon. I know it was a premium so I shouldn't wait to long.

Cheers

Maz Ladies

I always thought the Maz Ladies got short shrift. If you get past the idea that you're playing with a female robot doll with rocket propelled breasts, you can appreciate them for the top-notch gokin they are. Each lady is an excellent gateway drug to SOC (was for me!). Once you physically feel what modern gokin can be, you'll be hooked. Leo, seriously pick up Dancouga. It's dated by SOC standards, but it will blow your mind (except for the head/bird, which sucks).

Can anyone tell me,

I've seen listed on ebay several that say Mineva X rather than Minerva X (Missing the R) on the box and on the display stand. Is this an earlier version that they messed up the spelling or possibly a bootleg? Just kind of curious.

nope nothing special...

just transliterating it from the katakana being read as such though interestingly the katakana is ミネルバ.

ミネルバ= MiNeRuBa but

ミネルバ= MiNeRuBa

but I will go with what's written on the Box in Romanji by Bandai although both are correct.
