I was walking through the backstreets of Harajuku on my first day alone
in Tokyo. I took a few turns and next thing you know I am lost in the
back streets of this hipsters paradise. Luckily I had the toy-radar on,
and I found a little store called Pook
I found Panda-Z Waiting for me there, its cuteness demanding me
to purchase it. So I did.
Panda-Z is manufactured by Megahouse, a small Japanese company.
It is about 6 1/2" tall, and made out of painted vinyl. It comes
blister carded. The packaging is nice because it allows you to re-seal
the figure, although i'm sure Panda-Z will never want to be put
away. The card opens up to reveal some nice artwork, including some sketches
of other characters in the Panda-Z universe. Will we ever see figures
Panda-Z Features articulation at the neck, arms and legs. The
pilot is removable, as is the "Jet Scrander." You can remove
the fists to simulate "Rocket Punch" action, but they do not
There is nice detailing on the ends of the fists. The bottom of
the feet have nice paint detail, too.
I don't know if Panda-Z is limited or not, but I saw empty display
stands for it all over tokyo. HLJ has them, so get them while they last.
