I don't remember ..

The crotch being like that in the series. And yes this aired on US airwaves and has a dvd release.
That or i never really payed much attention to it. Considering how the story is pure cracked out with good character development.

Overall nice review but all

Overall nice review but all the comments where kind of annoying.

Just asking, but, what's the point of a review with complains of different aspects of the mech desing, not the figure itself, when from what I read you didn't even watched the show. I mean, It's a very unique desing, and you could at leasttried to find out what the little figure is. ( it's some kind of child form of the inner organism that is nirvash type the end) and the pink eyes are like that because the pilot's eyes are also pink.

What's the point? Well, I'll

What's the point? Well, I'll probably sound like a traitor here as Eureka Seven is my favourite anime of all times, but it's like whining at a reviewer of a Gunpla because he he didn't watch Gundam Seed and yet dares to say he doesn't like the design... but then comes the question "are we talking about the design of the toy or the Gundam itself?". Both actually, unless you noticed it already, chara design and toy design are bound together. If you strip the toy of it's main design then all you have left is quality of materials, joint construction, box and not much more to talk about. So basically you can't talk about the toy very much if you omitt the predefined design given by the anime's development team, because it makes up about 90 % of the whole toy. I find it a lot better that Josh says what he thinks, it makes his review something personal and fun to read, even if you don't always agree. Or maybe you'd prefer something like "gee, I'd really like to say what I think about the features of this mecha design, but then again, I'm risking some fanboys yelling at me and we don't want that happen, do we?"

And don't give me that "watch the show! do some research!", youe knowledge doesn't seem to be any bigger. That small toy is an SD version of type theEND and it was Bandai's very idea to make the toy more attractive. No such thing ever appeared in the show. Should that be the Nirvash in pre-robot form, you'd see something completely different.

Argument that Nirvash's eye color reflects the eyes of the pilot is also only half right, because that would mean that Nirvash typeZERO eyes should match first Eureka and then Renton. Gosh, what will happen to his eyes when they pilot him both at the same time? Nothing, it still has green eyes behind green windows. I'd rather say that theEND's eyes are a result of the material used to build it rather than it's pilot pupil color. Especially that in the manga its piloted by several people and no change in its eyes occurs.

Sorry for that monologue Josh ^^ And jus to help, that big bulb with the hatch on the robot's back is its cockpit, that bee-nest-like thing is where the pilot plugs himself in to control the robot.

While the infant TheEND did

While the infant TheEND did not appear in the TV series, it DID make an appearance in the new Eureka 7 movie (which takes place in a parallel universe), along with an infant Nirvash. Seems your knowledge isn't quite perfect either. ;)

That said, while I could've done without all the negative comments about the mecha's appearance, the ups and downs of this particular toy WERE covered, and that's really all I ask for in a review.

About my knowledge, heh, so

About my knowledge, heh, so it seems :D Still, it's much easier to keep tabs on TF Toys than on anime :) Never knew the Eureka Seven project was still open. Thanks :)

The one thing I can think if

The one thing I can think if is that, design wise, the enlarger crotch-piece probably helps counter-balance the huge back cockpit bit. Interesting figure, and I think I'm going to have to check out some members of the Robot Soul line.
