""Lightning Rules""

This review made me have to look at mine close up. I have the Lightning version as well. Mine however, DOES have the Spin Saw Blades in the forearms. The feet and lower legs are the same as your version.

This was one of my all time favorite Shoguns when I was a 7 year old!!!

Your contribution to the

Your contribution to the scholarship of Jumbos is impressive. Great work! I think CDX should re-run your Jumbo reviews, as they are the most comprehensive English coverage I've seen, particularly in regards to rare Maz enemies. And your attention to South American variants is unmatched in any language.

Wow, thanks! But all those

Wow, thanks! But all those reviews are easily accessible from the front page. No need to re-run them. :)

The oldest English-language

@The Enthusiast
The oldest English-language Jumbo site that I can recall is Sean Bonner's Jumboland. It's from the primordial days of the internet, but it's still got some great info:
http://www.sixsite.com/jumboland/index_credits.html

Apologies if links like this aren't allowed. Since it's a "dead" site, I thought it might be okay.

Nice piece!

I was never lucky enough to have any of the Jumbos as a kid. I did have the smaller, 5" or so diecast version of Dragun, and I loved it. I'm hoping it's still up on my parents' attic. In the meantime, I'm hoping to get the Revoltech version. Anyway, great review, and a fine specimen!

More subs

Also note that the upper arms are different as well. I wonder why they substituted the feet and upper arms on the Mattels?

Yeah, that's right. I forgot

Yeah, that's right. I forgot to mention that. I did notice it because when I recently got a Venezuelan Great Mazinger and Dragun, the Great Mazinger arm was broken. In trying to find a replacement, the seller noticed that it was the same as the Dragun. Unfortunately, although they were the same sculpt, the colors didn't match quite right. But anyway, yeah, somewhere along the way, Mattel replaced the Popy Dragun shoulders with Great Mazinger's, and then Nacoral and Famosa followed suit.
