Getter Robo 1 (Comic Version) Final Version

Now you see why this was in my box 'o' extra crap to sell at the summit this year... like you said it looks awesome but as soon as you try to make it do anything except fall down it fails...horribly so.

Not a good toy?!?!? Are you insane!

Speak for yourselves, gents! I happen to own three of each (Regular & Training versions) of this figure and have not had any of the problems you describe above. The only two things (I guess) my Getters have in common with "yours" is that it is somewhat hard to put the gun in their hands AND that the cape is pretty crappy indeed. Other than that, my Yujin Master Action Getters rule!

P.S. If you still have them, and don't really want them anymore, let me know...

kitbashed mine into a black getter

I bought the proto version to kitbash into an ova black getter.
Mine could barely stand on his power and his arms fell off even if he wasnt holding anything. A little bit of epoxy and super glue fixed everything.
The black getter turned out pretty good however the second I finished him pictures of the chogokin and the revoltech came out.. go figure.
btw, that chain gun he has, was that from the shin vs neo ova? i dont really remember him having it in anything else.

Yujin sucks

First off, that Black Getter custom is great! Nice job!

But back to Yujin: I don't have any of these Getter 1 figs, but I picked up the early version of Mazinkaiser (no Scrander) in this "Master Action" series. Master Crap. Joints flopped all over the place making it nearly impossible to stand up (much like this toy). The Mazinger Z, maybe you got lucky (super-lucky) in that you got several perfect specimens...but it seems highly unlikely that the lemons that we all got were exceptions rather than the rule...

I'm pretty much never buying Yujin stuff again without numerous positive reviews.
