Super Robot Chogokin Genesic Gaogaigar
Hell and Heaven hands (I was able to ask for the shipping box for this from my local store. Holds a box of 12 units).
Ok, before we begin, I’d like to point out a little goof I made when I took most of the pics, I didn’t realize there was a gimmick for the fins on GGGG’s chest. I only figured it out after I was done with everything and I didn’t have the time to redo the photos. So apologies in advance. .
Basically, what you want to do here is first, pull out the lower half of the fins, this will open up some clearance for the top fins to slide in. My unit arrived with the lower fins pushed in so I couldn’t adjust the top fins. Lol… that’ll teach me not to read the manual first. 😀
The wrong way (mind the gap)
Adjust the fins (both of them)
The right way
Also, admittedly, I copied some of the poses from Amiami’s blog. They really do great stuff. .http://blog.amiami.com/amiblo/2014/04/02.html
“11 Sol Masters, I will destroy you all!!!”
HELL AND HEAVEN!!!
“I’ll show you the power of true courage!”
Comparison with GGG
For the curious, the wings are not swappable.
-The weigh in :
-SRC Gaogaigar – 235 Grams
-SRC Shin Getter One – 263 Grams
-SRC Mazinkaiser – 308 Grams (Scrander equipped)
-SRC Dai-gard – 289 Grams
-Excellent sculpting all around
-Opening the Gadget Feather is smooth and easy! I loved it! The Max Factory version was a bit tricky to do.
-Super posey! It may be a bit daunting at first but once you get the hang of it, you can push the limits of how far the figure can pose and not worry about breaking anything.
-No parts swapping for the fins for Hell and Heaven! I didn’t think it was possible. .
-Even though it’s the heaviest SRC, the diecast content is a bit limited. As far as I can tell, the only metal parts here are the sides of the lower sections of the legs and the main joints that connect to the torso.
-Sides of the skirt plate tends to get in the way when posing the legs, mine popped off more times than I can count.
-Kind of surprised there were no ratchet joints anywhere here. But the joints are very good so no worries though.
– Given the amount of detail and parts that went into making this figure, one might find the price is a bit high compared to other SRCs, but it’s well worth it IMHO.
-No Goldion Crusher!!!!!! (But it’s forgivable, lol)
I dunno, maybe it’s just personal preference but I feel that the drill knees not being uniformed with SRC GGG seems kind of wrong. In fairness though, I do like it better not chromed, as it makes it more consistent with the crown’s gold paint.
Overall, I love it! The engineering here really impressed me. I thought they couldn’t go one better than how the old Max Factory figure was designed but Bandai really pulled it off. I could mess around with it all day and not worry about breakage or anything. .
