The March 2008 Tamashii Expo exclusive GX-01R+ Mazinger Z.
Accessories. The manual is just single paged and is black and white.
Essentially a retool and a repaint of the old GX-01R Mazinger Z. This version looks better, with the exception of the Scrander having less detail and it’s missing Iron Cutter accessory.
Pilder. The Gx-01R+ has a smaller “docked” Pilder compared to the Gx-01R. Both “undocked” Pilders are identical.
Scranders. Note the missing red paint on the “backpack” and the missing “Southern Cross Knife” ports. The missing red paint does make the Scrander more “Anime accurate”.The new “Z” logo comes from the “Mazinger Z vs. Devilman” movie (thanks to TheMazingerZ over at Robot Japan for the tip).
With the original GX-01 Scrander.
Display stand. The nameplate is replaced with a sticker like the one on the GX-01.
The GX-01R and the GX-01R+.
