When I got the the Popynica Poseidon to complete the Getter G set, it brought all of the best parts of each ship out, making the set feel greater than the sum of it's parts. Each ship has it's upsides but seeing all three together really took me back to my childhood and for a few days after it's arrival, I could barely stop looking at the trio.
A 3.5" x 2.5" x 2.5" box houses the final vehicle in the set, resting snugly within a sheet of foam along with a catalog and bag of missiles.
Now with all three vehicles on hand, here's a comparison shot of the size of the boxes. As someone who really values symmetry, I do wish all three boxes were the same size, but that's a minor complaint.
All three Getter G ships look great together.
Poseidon is nearly 3.5" long and mostly die-cast, although it seems to have more plastic parts than the othe ships. The wings, head and chrome bits are all plastic. Unlike the others, there is no clear plastic cockpit on this one.
Most of the color details on Poseidon are painted on.
The only stickers on it are the "Getter Robo G Poseidon" label on the each side.
There are two gimmicks on the toy. The first and best is that the wings can fire missles, much like the Liger ship. The mechanism works the same way, but the missiles are a different shape and color. The missiles for both my Poseidon and Liger vehicles are still sealed but you can see that the red Poseidon missiles are a little longer.
Lastly, the wings of the ship can be folded up.
Another small and simple vehicle, Poseidon and his Getter Robo G/Starvengers teammates look great on my shelf and have really opened my eyes to the joy of the Popynica line.
