Cinema 1

Hey Josh, that Cinema 1 store in Dubai is actually really cool. It caters to the high-end modern movie collectibles crowd. I know some folks that lived in Dubai and they sent over some shots of the store to see if if there was anything that I wanted for my collection. Look for the Dubai Mall and you'll find some pictures of the store (it's designed really classy.) Most of what they had that I saw was your Sideshow, Hot Toys, PG Gundam, statues, etc; your typical medium to high-end japanese collectibles (or stuff that caters to that crowd). I didn't know they had anything exclusive - their stock looked like the same stuff as what HLJ or Angolz offers - so now I've got to check it out again.

I have a feeling that "Grendizer World Dubai" is basically the licensor of Grendizer in the United Arab Eremites, or a name HL uses to keep them out of legal hot water? There is a huge amount of merchandise in Dubai based on Grendizer, specifically T-shirts, from what I can tell from friends's pictures.

This giant 7-foot Grendizer was what got my friend to send me pictures of the store:

I have family leaving for Dubai this week, they're staying right next to Dubai Mall so I'll ask if they can stop in and quiz the clerks about any other exclusive super robot items they sell.

Had the chance..

I had the chance to buy this only a month ago in Dubai Mall (Virgin Megastore). I decided against it and instead got the Duke Fleed figure by HL Pro. It was a decision I soon regret because it can't even stand on it's own due to some deformation of the legs. This however now, after looking at the review it actually seems like a decent Grendizer collectible. I just wish it came in a box.

Looks awesome!

Since Grendizer was popular with the Arabic populace back in the day, I'm not surprised bout' finding it in Dubai ^^
