-Lots of diecast(almost everything except for the forearms and head)
-HEAVY!! I haven’t been this impressed by the proportional weight of an SOC for quite a while. The toy when fully assembled weighs 500 Grams (1 pound!) It’s 100Grams heavier than the Gx-18 Getter Dragon.
-Ratchet joints in the shoulders and knees.
-Box easily gets crushed (always hold it from the left side!!!!)
-no Getter Machine.
-No longer has the ability to disconnect (Unlike the GX18-20) so you can’t make your own bastardized Getters.
No real problems with the toy but the folded arms accessory did kind of feel under-detailed, the sculpt edges for the hands should have been mode defined IMHO. As is, the lack of detail makes it look like the hands have been “welded” into the arms.
Overall, despite the shrunken size (still not that bad, at least it hasn’t shrunk to 3.75 Inches scale yet), a great toy, luckily they made it taller than Shin Mazinger so that’s a step in the right direction. Plus the impressive weight is a great bonus. I think I would probably pick this over the Gx-18. I always felt that the Gx-18 Getter Dragon was too skinny.
