I am nothing anywhere in the

I am nothing anywhere in the ballpark of a fan of Mazinger, Mazinkaizer, etc. That has zero appeal to me.

But this thing is bad ass! O_o

Ha, ha...! Funny, really...

Ha, ha...! Funny, really... 'cause that's the same way I feel about Evangelion - zero interest in it - no kiddin'! But I did pick up the SOCs and a few Revoltechs of the EVAs.

Anyway, Josh, one thing that I wanted to point out is that this guy's name is actually spelled MAZINKAIZER, versus the original MazinkaiSer. I have no idea why Go Nagai or Bandai (or both) decided the suttle name change, but I guess it is pretty much because they could. The figure is pretty awesome, but like you said, very hard to find at a reasonable price... heck, it's price was unreasonable even when it was first released - for a 14cm mostly plastic figure that is.

Oh yeah, Josh... you forgot to put the Skull Peg back in the chest after you removed the Breast Triggers. ;)

The only other super robot

The only other super robot Revoltech I have is the Getter Robo 3... just because it looks cool. But I've never seen it before either.

It has gone up to about USD

It has gone up to about USD 200 on ebay X)
I think bandai made this taller in order to give a correct-in-scale feeling when compared to mazinger & great mazinger.

Any word on a SRC SKL Minerva

Any word on a SRC SKL Minerva X? This robot has a few features in the anime that could use a weapons pack or just give the figure a nice SOC treatment.

The actual name of that one is Wingle...

Yeah, the name of the female SKL counterpart is Wingle. So far, there is no news or even a hint that it will get the SRC treatment. However, rumor is that Mazinkaizer wings are actually Wingle's head, soooo, it may be released for the purpose of accessorizing the Mazinkaizer SKL... and probably as another Tamashii exclusive.

Jumbo Tribute

There IS another figure definitely coming from MAZINKAIZER SKL - and it's the powered-up Mazinger.

One look at the toy, and you can see, it's a nice tribute to the Jumbo Machinder Mazinger.

Did you watch the anime DVD?

It's getting an R1 DVD release too in a month or so.

Great design. Maybe they'll be a revoltech of it too.

Scrander Cross !!

A huge thanks to Josh for reviewing this. I honestly didn't think it would make it's way to CDX since its so rare as you described.I also got mine from Anime-export and absolutely love it. I have had some trouble getting him to hold the guns from the other end, but i suppose i might be able to make it work after looking at your pic there.

Also, it might be interesting to note, that in the newly released 2nd episode, the breast triggers attache to each other and a handle comes out, forming a huge axe like weapon. Fans are wondering if this is any indication plans for a new accessory pack that would include the axe handle along with the wings (scrander part) that should be introduced in the next and final episode of Mazinkaiser SKL.

Ugh. Exclusive?!

I hate that this thing is exclusive. I want it but I am not willing to pay for the "collectors price" for it.

How does someone get these exclusives when they come out?
