Neo Getter 1

Still worthy...

Lately I'm finding myself searching out these older gokins over their contemporary Gokin offerings. New stuff like Bandai's SRC line is better articulated and engineered, but their size is diminutive, and unlike older Gokin toys, they really don't at all feel special. I'm curious to see if in the near future there will be a renewed interest in these older toys.

I've gotta say, I've enjoyed my recent purchases of Aoshima's Getters over anything I've bought in the SRC line. It's too bad that if someone wants a 'real' modern Gokin toy, they've basically gotta go the high-end route with something like Fewture's (over priced) EX Gokins.

There's just no real middle ground anymore...

These older "new wave" gokins

These older "new wave" gokins were fun enough, but they lacked the refinement of Bandai's SOC line. The closest equivalent I can think of now is the Fewture EX gokin line - not the huge diecasts, but the smaller Transformers Diecast, or the recent CM Corp's ones.

Stryo-melting action

I got a couple of Aoshima Getters from an HLJ sale a few years back. When I opened up the New Getter 1, his head was entirely covered in melted styrofoam :P I managed to scrape most of it off, but boy that was annoying!
