That's one gorgeous looking

That's one gorgeous looking Chicken Ship!

Perhaps not too surprising, it's basically an updated mirror copy of the original Popy DX classic, sans rolling wheels and missile gimmicks, complete with the spring loaded Horned Tank docking bay... but I guess you couldn't really improve on perfection. The size of the toy looks about the same as the original too. For the price, I don't see this as essential a piece as say... the Uni-Five Godphoenix and definitely not if you already have the Popy DX. But that's one fine looking toy!

Great Photos.

Really nice pics of a great toy. I also got this and love it. It's just gorgeous and heavy and beautifully painted. I've never even seen the show and only collect the original Gatchaman stuff but this piece was too nice to pass up. I've also preordered the Godphoenix and Mark's plane that are coming out soon. I didn't pull the trigger on the Gatchaman pieces released a couple years ago and have regretted it.

The only thing I had trouble with was the horned tank wouldn't fit if I closed the hatch so I swapped that out for the car being the center and the tank being stowed in the wing, then I can lower the hatch. Maybe my platform doesn't go down as low as it should? Also, the screw to put the stand together was super small and I almost stripped it. Probably won't be taking it apart anytime soon :)

me too and great review

I bought and love it, same issues, but Fewture always looks great but has some defect that drives you crazy.

Also got the God Phoenix and Marks plane repaint, I also regretted not getting and actually like they are now not part of the sets

That is awesome! The only

That is awesome!

The only thing I liked about Eagle Riders was the most ridiculous name ever given to a villian: you thought he was called Count Egobossler. No it's-wait for it- HAPPY BOY!! No that's his ACTUAL name. Apparently he liked to "laugh a lot" but he name is just....narm*

* narm is when something tries to be serious but ends up being funny or ridculous instead
