Banpresto Super Robot Wars PTX-003C Alt Eisen
Alt Eisen (which means “Old Iron” in German) was released in 2006 by Banpresto (after Unifive stopped producing diecast figures. Personally I think this might’ve been a follow-up to the Unifive release of the Huckebein MK-II. Sadly, as far as I know this is the only other diecast Super Robot Wars Original Generations figure I know of.
Alt Eisen Weapons
Triple Machine Cannon
After the Revolving Stake has “fired” all of it’s shots, the chamber can be emptied and the shells individually removed.
Alt Eisen stands roughly 5-6 Inches tall, weighs roughly 400 Grams. Ratchet joints abound in this figure, the shoulders, and the hips and groin joints are all ratcheted (the knees aren’t though).
Thankfully, the manual has a color-coded guide as to which parts are diecast on the figure (indicated as blue). Why can’t all diecast toy makers do this?
The base also works with other 1/144 figures.
When attaching the antennae, just pull out the head and attach, since the huge shoulders will get in the way.
The Square Claymore release button is cleverly hidden in the shoulder vents
Thrusters can move individually.
Word of warning when flipping out the Revolving Stake chamber, make sure both ends (pins) of the stake have released the locks. Otherwise you will break it if you force it out.

Alt Eisen later had an upgrade and was renamed Alt Eisen Riese (Old Iron Giant). The changes in the design are subtle but the weapons have been greatly improved.
