AAArgh!

This is AWESOME! Seriously, a really beautiful toy. Where has TAITO been all my life, apart from producing some of the greatest, most iconic videogames ever? I'm afraid that my suitcase is going to bebrimming with Taito stuff when I come back at the end of March... (If there's any to be found, that is...)"Hey, uh...let's volt in."

This is absolutely

This is absolutely fantastic. Taito is doing a heck of a job with their Matsumoto UFO prizes, but this has to be the best one yet. I keep passing on the Marushin gun; everytime I think of seriously getting one, I take a good look at how deformed it actually is.

The fact that it has any moving parts at all is great, I'd be happy with a static piece. Time to pick one up.

Cosmo Dragoon

I bought this toy from Yahoo Japan via a middleman. The toy is a masterpiece. When considering the amount of anime-accurate detail and the incredibly cheap price, I prefer this to its diecast or garage kit counterparts. A must-have for Leiji Matsumoto-sensei fans.

Looking for it!

I'm a huge Matsumoto fan and we're planning on doing a group cosplay in Greece (currently at 6 people). I've been looking for the Cosmo Dragoon everywhere to no avail. Could anyone tell me if there is any way to get my hands on 3 of them, at their normal price ( not at the crazy level the Ebay ones are being sold )? From what I can understand, there are two models avaliable, as shown here right?

If possible, I would like to have both of them and one of them twice (making that 3 of them as planned). Anyone out there who knows where I can get any of them?

I want it so badly ;_;

I quickly went to look for it on Ebay as soon as I read this review; to my surprise, it's no longer 100 yen but the ONLY model available on Ebay is $200 WITHOUT the shipping. Unless you won the lottery or you have 200 dollars to spend, I wouldn't suggest getting the toy--or perhaps it really did come out in limited quantities. My message is don't look too hard at the pictures or else you'll be tempted into spending a lot on a beautiful toy.

This

This is an old thread but I've seen some people paying crazy money for these the last two months.

There is a vintage diecast version that I think is pretty darn nice, with sweet box art, that is roughly going for the same price I've seen people paying for these. It's metal, and it shoots caps. Keep that in mind before you click that four hundred dollar button on the auction...
