I'm not a Grendizer fan

I'm not a Grendizer fan (never seen it, don't really want to 'cause it's too old school for my tastes), but I like this thing! I would get it just for the saucer mode (I LoL'd at the detachable tripod legs), but the completed mode looks pretty awesome as well.

Nice review. I like how you point out this is a pre-production model and what the differences will be. Good photos as always.

Personally, I'm loving the fact that there are so many new Grendizer products coming out as of recently. Any chance this is a sign of a new series in the works? almost all of Go Nagai's robots have had a new series or two, seems a bit unfair that they keep leaving Grendizer out.

This looks great.

I 100% support and encourage the Grendizer love!

can't wait!

Can't wait to get this one - I like the design of this enemy saucer robot! Would anyone know the release date? Also, is the prototype the "weathered" version as compared to the Manga/Anime version?

What a terrible time to be

What a terrible time to be broke! Grandizer is THE super robot that got me into the whole genre, so he holds a special place in my heart. I avoided the Metaltech since I already have the SOC, but I've wanted saucer animals for ages. Complained about it many a time to other fans.

Now we have a command saucer AND a saucer animal? Cripes. How much plasma would I have to sell to get the Metaltech Grendizer pack plus both baddies?.......

Mirror mirror on the wall, who's the greatest Grendizer and High Dream fan of them all?

I know the answer.

If it's a model from the Grendizer universe and made by HIGH DREAM, I'll buy it - DEFINITELY!!!!

HIGH DREAM is doing a great job with their METALTECH SERIES and I wish them luck from the bottom of my heart.

The only grumble about GIRU GIRU is that HL Pro had to change his anime-accurate set of teeth (seen on the resin prototype) to these anime-inaccurate needle-like teeth for safety reasons!

I find this decision simply unfair and illogical as this is not a toy but a model for serious collectors!

Looking forward to buy GIRU GIRU and waiting anxiously for the next METALTECH 03 - The Duke Fleed Buggy with a piloting Daisuke Umon!

I finally just got one of these today and in seeing this review now, I can't believe it's been out for 7 years already? Anyway, I love it but the mouth on my particular example just won't open up and I'm afraid I'll break it if I try too hard.
