Tekkaman Blade with Pegas

Actually, I think it's a shame Pegas can't eject Blade from inside like he did in the show, but that's because he transforms. Also, I think it would be cool if blade's hands, shoulders and head anteannas collpased to form his high speed manouver mode, or include his whips that he uses to retrieve his weapon after throwing it, but that's just me bragging :)

A really nice toy, indeed :)

BTW, the shoulder weapons are called Vol Tekka and the handles in Pegas extend when the robot is used to dramatically increase Vol Tekka's power output.

16.000 yen

at that price, is it the most expensive SOC SPEC?

I too think it's too bad

I too think it's too bad that he can't turn into his high speed mode. It's a pretty cool attack, and probably would've allowed for an easy way to fit him into Pegas too. This one is definitely gonna be my first SOC, even if it is a soul spec only cause I loved Tekkaman Blade so much. Someday....someday it shall be mine....

I agree. Tekkaman Blade's

I agree. Tekkaman Blade's American rendition, Teknoman, was one of my favorite shows as a child. I've been waiting for what seems like forever for a decent toy set of these figures, so this will be my first SOC investment as well.

Seems like a neat piece, but tekkaman himself has no metal at all?

I'll take Baikanfu over this one, thanks.

XS-12 Tekkaman Blade with Pegas

The box is great, Tekkaman Blade is great, Pegas is great - Everything is great except the price.

For 16,000 YEN (plus the large amount of VAT and customs clearance I had to pay) I got an item which is 98% plastic!!!! Oh come on Bandai!!!

Speaking of Tekkaman Blade, Bandai will soon release a diecast version of Tekkaman Blade in their ARMOR PLUS range.

As for Pegas' lack of leg articulation, there is nothing wrong as Pegas was only a carrier robot/battery charger/friendly robot. Notice Pegas' Tako (octopus) head - a trademark of Tatsunoko Pro. who seem to love sea creatures so much that even their trademark logo is a sea creature - a sea horse.

I sincerely hope Bandai will release a diecast of the classic Space Knight Tekkaman and Pegas.

Cool man. I got this

Cool man. I got this recently and its a neat set. I feel Pegas steals a lot of thunder from Pegas but that ok. The ability for Blade to use him as a surf board is cool :D. I wonder though why is the extra head (with shorter antennae) grey instead of white?
