Review by JoshB
Medicom offered 3 different versions of it's Miracle Action
Figure Raideen figure:
- Regular Color
- Gold Color
- Chogokin Color
All three versions have the same features: 30 points of articulation,
bird change transformation, variant hands and weapons, a miniature enemy
figure (Dorome), and a tiny pilot figure on his motorcycle (Sparcar) that
fits into Raideens' waist.
Diamond Comics imported the MAF Raideen in 2000, featuring
english packaging and an english instruction sheet, created specifically
for the US release.
The hardest one to find is the Chogokin-color version, which was a Toy
Show exclusive in Japan. It was released at the 2000 20th century toy
museum exhibition. It retailed for 5,980 yen.
This is a beautiful figure, but many people find it too fragile for them.
It does tend to break easily. Also, the transformation into GodBird mode
involves adding several pieces. It could have used a stand in GodBird
mode, much like it's cousin the HCM Raideen.
Due to retailers ordering too many units, this figure can be had for
a fraction of it's retail cost. Look for it, you won't be sorry.
