Neo Getter 1
Review by JoshB
Neo Getter gets no respect in the world of Getter Robo, with all the attention going to his brother, Shin Getter. But here's a tip, Neo Getter is the better toy.
Both toys have diecast construction, clicky joints and immaculate paint jobs. But Neo Getter wins with all the cool gimmicks.
First off, Neo Getter has chain fists! That's right. A hollow alternate set of forearms houses a long chain attached to the fist! Pull the fist off and the chain extends. it does not fire, unfortunately.
Neo getter also has a feature that most modern chogokin have been lacking - firing missiles! The two tread banks on the back open up to fire spring loaded missiles. They aren't the most powerful missiles in the world, but they do fire!
Also, Neo Getter comes with a unique energy bolt that he can hold above his head, to replicate the effect in the anime.
Other accessories include an alternate set of hands, and special handshake hands for Shin Getter, so Shin and Neo can shake hands. (Mazinkaiser can shake hands as well. They're awfully friendly).
Aoshima produced several different versions of this toy. Here's a guide to the toys and their differences:
|Normal Version||Shown here.|
