It really seems to be a good figure. The amount and quality of the accessories is nice for the price.

I never watched the show, but the design is really cool. I like how they made the thin arms and thighs together with big forearms and legs, without sounding cartoonish.

Thanks for the review!

Sweet review. Could've used a nice close-up shot of the head.

Having not seen the show, I get the feeling that all this swag looks more impressive on the toy than it does in the anime.

Re roboswag, amazingly no.

Re roboswag, amazingly no. Every item included with the robot shows up multiple times in the show, with its results or consequences well covered. The show is surprisingly "real world" grounded in unexpected ways. In spite of the pair of giant robots and the giant aliens. The characters are astonishingly real in unexpected ways. And it is one of the few Giant Robot shows to actually ask about the physics (and stupidity of) many common robot tropes. Take that drill arm for example. The scenes with it are amazing for how awkward, useless and unintentionally destructive the thing is, because it is a big honking drill arm spinning at thousands of rpm. Also noteworthy is the knot punisher and its earlier versions. The big honking pile driver weapon. It isn't a one and done super weapon or something from the finale. You watch the team develop and evolve the weapon over time. And once they find a weapon that works, they start using it, as their first go to option. None of this "ultimate attack" build up nonsense.

If you haven't seen it, it really is an often overlooked gem.

SRC MegaDeuce!!!!

Have not seen the show but I actually bought this figure based on this review and the fact that I love the design. It kinda hits on all my Giant Robot loves.

This figure also makes my hope for SRC MegaDeuces even greater!!!!!!!!

Have the show's boxset. . .

Pretty funny how they have to deal with all the red tape, worth a watch good series IMO. . .
If you have lived the salaryman's life (or spent serious time in Japan) you will like it a lot !

Pacific Rim meets The Office

A great often overlooked anime. A really distinct robot. What more could we ask? Okay I confess I would really love to see this guy given the SOC treatment. There is just something appealing about the lowest bid government contractor built and operated robot getting a top of the line Gokin that is oddly appealing.

One neat detail often

One neat detail often overlooked. The extra parts in the tray allow you to assemble or display the robot configured for both the 2nd generation Knot Punisher (no hands, the claw piece on the flywheel arm, the pile driver piece on the back of the knot punisher and the weapon facing long way forward) and the 3rd generation Great Knot Punisher (the weapon barrel rotate to the rear and both the weapon and flywheel have retractable hands. No pile driver counterweight. ) The SRC Kokuboguar comes with the first generation "Knot Buster".
