Bandai Soul of Chogokin GX-51 Getter Dragon

Scheduled for a November 2009 release, Getter Dragon will be joining the ranks of the Soul of Chogokin line from Bandai. Recommended retail price at 7875Yen (~SGD$124). Getter Dragon is from Getter Robo G, a super robot anime series created by Go Nagai and Ken Ishikawa and produced by Toei Animation.

I am not a fan of the Getter Dragon mecha design though, something about the head just turns me off. Not too hot about the red/white color scheme either..maybe if they did a "black" variant.

However, pics of the gokin from Bandai does indeed put it in a good light with gokin looking solid and imposing. Size is good (see comparison pic with SOC Big-O below)

I'm still undecided whether add it to my collection.
Until then, here are some pics

  1. Shin Gettar is memorable for me. I grew up watching Getta G on TV. Even thought this is from "Getter Armageddon" which sucked! This robot design is awesome.

  2. I skipped on watching this anime. maybe thats why the mecha design holds no sway over me :P
