Someday our robotics and

Someday our robotics and miniaturization will be so sophisticated that such toys will not be limited to a light gimmick. They'll have full mobility, and may even be controllable by a kinect-like interface. You could have a friend come over with their Big O, and you could literally fight it with your Daitarn. They may need little rubber gloves to prevent paint scratches.

Too bad for the tachikoma. It's a great idea trapped in the early 21st century.

Very nice toy, I think I want one! I have never been interested in interactive computer toys but this looks like loads of fun, especially for my work computer. Bring this to the office and make the work day go faster! I also loved the design of Tachikoma.

Missed the Boat...

Yeah, I'm the same - I missed out and am now utterly kicking myself. HLJ was selling them for ages for around $50. Now you can't get one under $300... I didn't get it at the time as it dropped when the 1.2 version was released with the metallic paint, and I was wanting one of those instead and just never bought it.

Ah well, at least I managed recently to get a Good Smile tachi for retail...

Well, I managed to get one

Well, I managed to get one myself finally - for 7000 yen plus postage. Under $100 all up. I'm very happy with it. I got it from Mandarake. They really have some awesome deals. If you search for the Japanese text of the stuff you are looking for you might have better luck too. Initially I found it and it was second hand, 5000 yen, so I ordered it, and they contacted me telling me thay it was out of stock, but they had a new one for 7800 yen, and I said hell yeah, and when I was billed for it, I only got charged 7000. I was stoked. It arrived yesterday.

I couldn't frigging believe it though. I got it for less than retail, new, when everywhere else on the net is looking at around $300 for them. Mandarake ROCK.

I should see about doing a Tachikoma comparative review somewhere. I have the Good Smile Ghokin, Fetwure Ex Ghokin, Bandai Ghokin, and Megahouse Perfect piece, and a wave.
