Zagoran Tank Mini (SDCC 08 Exclusive)
Review by Shogundan
After reading Josh's Balbagon review, I just had to show our readers what gateway toy sucked me into the world of Kaiju vinyls.
I never really had much love for vinyls. I always thought they were overpriced kiddie toys. I was wrong! While Josh and I covered this year's San Diego Comic-Con, this vinyl caught my eye at the Gargamel booth......Behold! Gargamel's Zagoran mini tank vinyl!
So many things compelled me to get this piece. From its comical menacing grin to the fact that its a monster wearing a WW I German-inspired helmet while riding a tank! The German inspiration really struck a chord with me because of my German heritage and the fact that I'm a history buff.
Man, this thing just oozes cool! Upon further inspection, I realized that not only was it aesthetically cool but it also has some gimmicks. You can separate the top half of Zagoran from the tank and attach his legs, so its like 2 figures in one. That's not all! He has a waist joint, the turret moves on the tank and you can remove his helmet.
To conclude this, watch out! The vinyl bug can bite you when you least expect it. Heck, it got a hater like me appreciating the beauty of vinyl.
