great job

Great job as always, still impressed and clueless how you do the black engulfing darkness while the figure is crisp and clean and easily seen...

As for the chogokin...I am on the fence, have him pre-ordered but keep canceling and redoing...not sure

Thanks for the very early review, Chachi!

This sets me up nicely for my specimen to come in, a month or so for now!!!

I supposed this would have been a brick, and quite Vintage style as far as SOCs go. Bandai seems to go the easy way, from gx-45 on...

And... Ehm... The comparison Mazinger is Gx-01r, not 45... ;)

a "robot guy"

Yeah, the 45 has black gloves and boots, and has an extra angle between his ribs.
I feel like I've become a "robot guy," now that I notice such things...

OMG! youre right! I meant to

OMG! youre right! I meant to use the GX-45 but grabbed the GX-01R. Will fix straight away.

*edit- hmm my gx-45 is missing from my display case! If it wasn't for that comment I wouldn't have known. The seaarch continues!

Top quality review!

Wow! That was a review of the highest quality! Good show! I'm glad Bandai is still doing the SOG line.

I wish I new more about that robot because the engineering and quality of the toy is amazing. Makes me really wish Bandai would do a Mighty Orbots toy but I guess the chances of that really happening are little to none, but I can always have hope :)

Sea King and Land

Since Sea King and Land King look as excellent as they do, it's almost a shame to them combined.
After giving it some thought, I think I prefer I would prefer each robot on their own rather than the complete God Sigma.
Having said that, God Sigma does look gorgeous. I've had no previous exposure to character, but I don't doubt that long time fans love this.

Here's some terminology:

The opening panels in the wings are there to replicate part of one of God Sigma's finishing moves. The first part is called... "Sigma Breast"... -_-;

The big silver sword God Sigma uses is called the Musou-ken (Peerless Blade) and the big blue shield is the God Shield.

Finally, there is one final move which I am not sure this toy can replicate, and, as far as I know, it was a self-sacrificing move in the anime that was used towards the end. If you search on YouTube for "Super Robot Wars Z" and "God Sigma", you should be able to see what it is I'm talking about.

BANDAI - SOUL OF CHOGOKIN GX-60 God Sigma

Great review chachi as usual!

I remember watching God Sigma on Italian TV as a boy and really loved the gattai sequence and the accompanying background music!

What I couldn't understand at the time was whether Commander Terral of the Elda Empire was male or female. This mystery was solved when I watched the anime on DVD recently.

Now for some nitpicking:

1. The 'gun' of Sea Rumble King is actually a harpoon - he is a marine robot, right?!

2. The 'gun' of Land Quake King is actually a drill - he is a land robot, right?!

3. The gimmick when the wings open is in reality a very powerful weapon which shoots a high energy beam, a sort of Trinity energy beam at full power. It has a devastating effect on the enemy robots of the Eldans. It was used later in the show when God Sigma was upgraded because the Eldan enemy robots were becoming too strong for him to handle.

Meh…

As much as I would like to pick up this guy, I'm not a huge fan of expensive bricks. So a definite pass for me.

Thanks for providing that

@grendizer1975 Thanks for providing that info. I tried to watch an unsubbed episode and failed miserably at understanding anything. I think my achilles heel is that I'm not much of a fan of anime but I'm all over robot toys !

Yeah, most of my knowledge of God Sigma comes from playing Super Robot Wars Z for the PS2 with a story summarization found on GameFAQs. Thankfully, it is enough that I know what I'm talking about.

Did this set also come with a hatchet (the God Tomahawk) and electric-like effect pieces (God Sting)?

Sadly no, I've read some complaints of these being left out. What you see is what you get.
