Oh man!

I am really excited for this. The armor is hands down the best thing about Red Spectacles and I cannot wait to get my hands on this. I bet you Zuey will want one of these too.

I love the Protect Gear

I love the Protect Gear designs, too....but if this particular incarnation comes from after Jin Roh (presumably, the present, as in the Red Spectacles movies), then why's this poor guy lugging around WWII-era German guns? :P

Mine should be here any day along with Enki. Stupid SAL shipping! But it's all I could afford. :)

Yay

This guy's a definite must-have... the Protect Gear really lends itself to a dramatically sculpted and dynamic figure.

Probably a life support control unit...adjusting heat, air etc.

Awesome toy and a great

Awesome toy and a great review

Thanks for the heads up on this amazing toy.
HobbyLink Japan is sold out, but I found
several places that have it for preorder
(some for under $20).

I'll make sure to be careful with the shields
when my two figures arrive in the mail.

I hope they do a "Jin-Roh" version

The Jin-Roh version of the armor looks better, in my opinion. The chest plate on the "Red Spectacles" version looks a bit flimsy, somehow. There's those big gaps at the shoulders, and a giant seam right in the middle of the chest. Of course, this might be the "recon" version of the armor, whereas the Jin-Roh is the "gunline" main-combat version. This kind of fits, with the Jin-Roh guys using MG42 instead of MG34.

God you are anal. :) They both look awesome to me and only slightly different.

Well, it's a LITTLE more obvious

The "Jin-Roh" armor doesn't have a solar-powered pocket calculator glued to it, for example.

And I'd also like to see the "female" version of the armor, a la Dragon/DML's "cy-girl" line.

Finally got one!

I finally got one of these (and so did Zuey) and it's pretty awesome. Heart. Some of the guns seem a little flimsy, but whatever. The little Mauser gun is my favorite anyway and is great.
