Cast off the beast, and the man! Now, become a god!

I'm kind of surprised at the largeness of the sword. in both this toy and the SOC. In the actual show, its size was much more moderate.

At least, it was moderately sized for a giantic robot composed of four other gigantic robots.

I'm not a Dancouga fan,

I'm not a Dancouga fan, never liked the idea of that type of combination. About the name on the box. After the Tv series was finished and OVA was released by the name of God Bless Dancouga, so my guess is that this toy is based on the ova version (don't really know if it's different from the tv one).
Dancouga Nova was also announced in this line?

This review inspired me to

This review inspired me to watch the first episode of Dancouga (the original,not Nova),and now that I've seen it,my only question is why haven't the made a figure of the metal mask mohawk guy? Screw Dancouga,MMMG is where the real action is! I wonder if he's any relation to the dude in Kizuna Encounter for Neo Geo?

Saga-gx,what do you mean by "that type of combination"? What's so different between Dancouga and other combining robots?

Metal Mask Mohawk guy

Get this, that mohawk guy you mentioned? His name is Death Gaia.
Even his name is metal.

It's a pretty sharp looking

It's a pretty sharp looking hat though. ;)

And Death Gaia is one of the better names I've ever heard! I didn't catch his name during the show because I was watching it raw,and the Japanese words all just blur together for me. I should take Micheal Phelps' advice and get Rosetta Stone.

Dancouga

Although I have never watched the show I ordered the mecha from HobbyLink Japan and surprise surprise received it yesterday together with Baxingar. The paintwork is exquisite and I love this line of robot figures. Yamato is doing an excellent job. Can't wait for Baldios. Thanks Yamato.

P.S. Yamato please do not waste plastic on black versions, metallic versions etc.
Kindly keep to anime colour. That's what the hardcore fan really wants.

currently ordering

unfortunately, it takes ages for toys to come here... currently ordering it, though i doubt it will hit my place any sooner than the release of GNU DOU Dancouga Nova.

life needs to be bittersweet;
you work the sweet side, and i'll manage to embitter it.
