What can I say...this is the most fantastic and awesome representaion of Getter, and so are his other modes... if it wasn't the price tag I'd definitely want to have a collection of these, they look incredible :) Go Nagai should be proud of this :)

Maybe it's just me...

I've owned all three Fewture Getters and the limited Black Getter, and it might say something that I've sold all but Getter 3 for a loss. While technically very impressive, their execution just never managed to speak to me enough to warrant keeping them, especially not considering their monstrous price tags. Pieces fall off and break fairly easily (especially on Getter 2... lordy), and they're just too large, too awkward, and too pricey to make themselves available to being touched once you've taken them out of the package.

It's one hellofa high the first time you unbox them though. It's just a pity that (at least, for me), the magic fades pretty quickly and they turn into dusty shelf hogs.

Good but bad...

Yep, good to know that people who missed the 1st edition won't have to pay sur-evaluated prices to have a nice collector piece of steele (I remember trying to explain my wife why it was "necessear" to burn 300$ on 1st ed', hum). But bad since I don't see any hand improvement and they are really s****y to make 'em old correctly axes. And the "falling torso cover" problem seems to still there... would be cool if Fewture would offer real clean finish that we expect on those too expensive items.

When I first saw this

When I first saw this reviewed a few years ago on this site, I was crushed to know that it was sold out and thought I would never get my hands on one. Now this is my chance to do so! Y'know, aside from the fact that I'm a poor college student... Still, if I do get a piece I hope it's this one.

OK, I'm closer to sold now

OK, I'm closer to sold now that I can see just how well articulated the figure is... and yet, the price is just such a big problem.
