GET BACK IN THE ZONE… MEGAZONE 23!
Torrance, CA, May 10, 2007 – Japan’s Yamato Co., world-renowned for its fully transformable Macross and Armored
Trooper Votoms action figures, continues full throttle its line of Megazone
23 Full Action Models with two new, improved 1/15 scale Garlands: Army
Color and Metallic
Color Box Set!
Loosley inspired by the Macross anime series (and even serving as
source material for the unreleased Robotech the Movie), Megazone
23 tells the story of young motorcycle enthusiast Shogo Yahagi who mistakenly
comes into possession of a top-secret, government prototype bike/mecha (the
Garland) through his friend/test driver, Shinji Nakagawa. Shortly thereafter,
Shinji is killed by the mysterious B.D.; and Shogo must run for his life, repainting
the Garland from its original army color to its now familiar red.
Drawing upon original mecha designs by Shinji Aramaki (Wolf's Rain, Bubblegum
Crisis), Yamato’s 1/15
Garland - Army Color Version sports all the amazing features of the original,
as well as a host of new accessories including an army test pilot action
figure with interchangeable Shinji Nakagawa head, two style of figures --
standing & sitting -- of Yui Takanaka, and a laser orb gun all packaged
in a distinctive window panel box. Yamato’s Garland – Army
Color Version is now shipping and available from Big
Bad Toy Store, Image
