nice review...plastic stress marks are like a girlfriend who ends up being a "crying game" girlfriend...back hair...hell that is why they invented weapons= back hair to me...maybe some shooting missiles would have been cool

If you already have a

If you already have a weird-ass proportioned giant robo, and then you turn around and add big dreamy eyes and make it into an SD figure, it is INSTANT WIN in my book.

I got no love for any Getter mecha (except the Revoltech Getter Robo 3 I have), but this toy is f***ing adorable! (*chuu*)

I really like the detail behind the transparent windows; nice touch!

Wasn't aware of this series, but it looks interesting.

I like this little guy, but maybe the price for all three will keep me from buying. Especially since I've never watched any of the shows (not really into 70's cartoons).

mine is on the way ,so excited... go all of the releases (getter 1 was particularly hard to find...) i expected the hands to flop around but never the joint plastic stress... much less the "back hair" part... : (

hope it doesnt turn me off...

Waiting for that Baikanfu... : )

hmm with a username like that

hmm with a username like that I'm not surprised this one is on its way to you. I'm sure you'll like it. Recently a few of my reviews have been prone to some weird "happenings". Figures are falling apart, flopping around etc.

I can only imagine it has something to do with the heat in my little review room. I'm talking HHHOOOTTT. Heat lamps, no AC etc. Maybe it softened the plastic enough to damage it. I dont know. I hope yours is non hairy
