Review by NekroDave
Of the four toys that constitute the "Rocky Robot" series from Ceppi Ratti, this is the second one I've been able to acquire and it is my favorite thus far. Despite the fact that it shares the exact same body and limbs, it seems strikingly different from the previous version due to not only having a much different head, but also a much brighter color scheme. Here are the two side by side.
When I first saw this toy, it was jokingly referred to as having a "watering can" head, but in fact I believe it to be based on the character of Baratak. Still, the sculpt is pretty silly, but certainly stands out.
Another minor difference between the two toys is that this one here comes with an ax for a weapon rather than a sword. In fact, with this toy I was lucky enough to get it in a box and it turns out that two of the robots in the series have the ax while the other two have the sword. Here are some pictures of the box that I was unable to show last time around.
I love these terrible little drawings of the robots on the sides of the box! Are there traces of Gundam on the other two? Could be, could be...
And as I suspected, the end of the box shows each character with a box to check to indicate which toy is inside.
Well, not much more to add. Just know that this exists and bask in its glory. You know you love it.
