Soul of Chogokin Gx-46 Dygenguar & Aussenseiter
Dygenguar (Stands for Dynamic General Guardian)
Zankantou (nihontou mode)
“Ware wa Zengâ Zonboruto, Aku wo tatsu tsurugi nari!” (“I am Sänger Zonvolt, the sword that smites evil!”)
Dygenguar also has the ability to shoot energy projectiles from the Zankantou “Zankantou: Denkousekka”
I’m really impressed Dygenguar can do this pose, though I guess the pointy knee and foot helped
Zankantou (broadsword mode)
“Waga Zankantou ni tatenu mono nashi!” (“There is nothing my Colossal Blade cannot cut!”)
In one battle Dygenguar loses his Zankantou, forcing Dygenguar to use only his default weapons.
Aussenseiter (German for “outsider” or “Maverick”)
Optional hand for extra pose.
Aussenseiter’s pilot is Elzam von Branstein, but he also goes by the alias Rätsel Feinschmecker (which means “The Mysterious Gourmet”)
Schulter Platte (German for “shoulder plate” Aussenseiter throws his shoulder plates like a frisbee at his opponent)
Elzam’s family crest
Lanze Kanone’s fold out from Aussenseiter’s back.
Lanze Kanone (Lance cannon)
Lanze Kanone W
Sturm Angriff (Aussenseiter’s final attack, means “charge” or “attacking wind”?)
Okay… so apparently, the SOC Aussenseiter can’t do the Sturm Angriff pose (where he shoots straight up into the air), due to mainly the cape getting in the way, so you have to remove the cape (just like in the game) and secondly the wrist joint is unable to hold the Lanze Kanone steadily so keep that in mind if you want to do the pose.
Super Robot Wars!
Height: 55.4 Meters
Weight: 142.7 Tons
Height: 54.9 Meters
Weight: 165.5 Tons
So going by these scales, these fellas should roughly be about as big as Combattler, sadly that is not the case.
“Tomoyo, ima koso ware wa no chikara miseru toki!”
Comparison with the Lanze Kanone legs (left) and properly proportioned legs (right).
With the default head and Lanze Kanones as legs
Hmm.. not that impressive yet…
With the proper head and the Lanze Kanones legs
With the proper head and legs (much better!)

The little blue piece next to Dygenguar’s optional face comes from Dygenguar’s shoulders when you have to take it out to attach the capes’ collar.
Display base rear view
-Both Dygenguar and Aussenseiter stand roughly 7″ tall
-Dygenguar weighs roughly 300Grams, Aussenseiter weighs almost 500Grams with everything attached including the guns (I forgot to weigh the Ikki tousen mode though)
-Decent amount of diecast spread out in Aussenseiter and Dygenguar(I was expecting severely minimal amounts at one point, glad to see I was wrong).
-Gotta love the way the swords were done. So darn shiny!
-Capes are somewhat hard to fit into the slots and left-right parts can be confusing to distinguish at times
-Dygenguar’s shin guards tend to pop off easily, I guess it’s better than it breaking off though.
-The Lanze Kanone guns are somewhat hard to pull apart at first, especially since the manual only illustrates it to be simple pegs, not so, they’re actually more anchor-like, so some force is required.
-Warning points! Watch out for these spots as I found the plastic here a bit thin and some force is required to shaft these parts out (possible points of breakage? I can’t say for sure).
-This part isn’t really thin but is still incredibly tight!!! You might have to put some effort into pulling it out to extend the legs, I have no idea if I pulled out the shaft enough since the manual doesn’t really indicate how far out you have to pull out.
-Ratchet joints limited only to Dygenguar’s bicep and knee.
-The high price? This is the most expensive SOC set release so far. The lack of ratchet joints might also be a problem especially for the Pferd mode’s rear thighs(Aussenseiter’s shoulders). If you’re not careful in properly placing the set in the support stand’s slots for the horse’s rear legs, the horse’s rear legs might slip and the whole set might come down.. so watch out for that.
Overall, the negatives aren’t too bad. The transformation isn’t really that complex but it does involve some tight joints being moved, especially the thighs joints on Dygenguar.
Overall, I like it, the Ikki tousen mode has impressive shelf presence. Individually, each robot looks really, really good too. Considering how this set could’ve gone horribly wrong (or worse, cancelled) Bandai really pulled it off I think. Here’s hoping they release SRX and the other core OG members.
