In 2002, Yamato Toys released the Hero Collection series of die cast metal super robots. Each robot was 6" tall, featured 14 points or articulation, and were almost entirely made out of metal. In the series were:
- Great Mazinger
- Getter 1
- Mazinger Z
- Getter Dragon
Getter Dragon is a fantastic sculpt and features an anime accurate paint job (as opposed to the metallic finish of the Soul of Chogokin version). He comes with 2 Getter tomahawks, but unfortunately, no cape.
The sheer metal content alone is enough to drive any chogokin fan crazy. But add solid detented joints for fantastic posing and you have one of the best toys of 2002.
The Hero Collection toys originally retailed for ¥4800 in Japan, but they were imported to the states by Diamond Comics Distributors for a substantially lower price later on.
