UPCOMING RELEASES # 02 : COMPOSITE Ver.Ka Gurren Lagann [Bandai ]


INITIAL IMPRESSIONS:



Hey there once again, boys and girls. I've been doing some "soul-searching", and it has come to my attention that it would be almost impossible to keep up in terms of continuously buying super expensive toys for the forseeable future. As such, my blog will now feature some new "wish-list" or upcoming releases mainly that pique my insatiable interest or when my mood is in the frame of mind for some random toy pickings. After all, you know the old saying:- that "variety is the spice of life!" 



Chanced upon this kickass rendition of the ever popular "punk-rock" themed Mecha series:- Gurren Lagann- by the good folks at Bandai specifically through the brilliant Japan-Mecha and Anime designer extraordinaire, the one and only Mr. Hajime Katoke-san! Suffice to say, this IMHO, the most "faithful" version ever produces of the super-robot drilled one in a long while. While there were other similarly inspired and already released lesser versions 
(read Kyodo's Revoltech); and the so called "perfect" edition (Read Konami's SOC version), this is the best as the design is more "streamed-lined"-plus- THE FACT THAT  it's sculpt is totally beautifully made beyond excellent reason to own one of these.


Luckily for fans of the series like myself, I had the good fortune, once again to get a decent deal for this 15cm Diecast and ABS plastic goody, crammed with the usual Accessories & Extra parts (just think along the lines of a "Master-Piece" Revoltech Lagann figure, and you're pretty much there! LOL!)

SO GLAD I GOT THIS ON A DISCOUNT.

JUDGING FROM THE PRODUCTION SHOTS, THE DESIGNERS AT BANDAI JAPAN HAS ONCE AGAIN DELIVERED A SOLID LOOKING, BEAUTIFUL MODEL WHICH CAN BE ADMIRED UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL! A++
