Nautilus: Metallic version
Review by AJProDie-Cast
Released by Aoshima, here's the mighty Nautilus, from the popular Gainax anime series "Fushigi no Umi no Nadia" '
This is the Metallic version.
Typical box and packaging of Aoshima ship releases.
The ship is around 12 inches long, somewhat smaller than all the other Aoshima ships and has no light up features.
Instead, it has gimmicky, opening missile silos with a button slide in front
In the back are two weird slide-out twin missile features that once switched/open were very hard to set back. The solution was I held the toy upside down and used my fingernails to slide back...very awkward!
The additional options are a back docking bay…
A detachable submarine/bridge…
And underneath gun bell.
Finally, two little small vehicles:
And one larger red pod, which comes with the metallic version and has plastic balloon and long orange legs (not shown, never took out of box).
The side of the box shows the Anime version (grey) which comes with the same pod and normal version (blue) that comes with a Captain figure
Overall the ship is mediocre, the stand has a tenuous hold on the ship (not easy to see where it should lie),
and the look, size, and lack of lights…
The price is around $169 on sale plus shipping, and for that I say pass and get another Chogokin. If you’re a big fan of the anime magazine or cartoon, it is mostly metal and does look pretty good.
