Alright, keeping up the speed we are on night 2! Also Happy Thanksgiving! Today we have SRC Shin Getter 1! When I saw this guy go up on Pre-Order, I had a great fanboy moment…Up until now I only could get this guy in Revoltech form with out selling an organ…So now we have and a Mazinger and a Grendizer…how does the next Super Robot compare?
Shit Getter is pretty impressive out of the box. He is massive! One of the heaviest figures to date. His coloring, wow…a brilliant red with a pearl white and emerald metallic greens…just a thing of beauty. The head sculpt has those beady angry eyes that just look like they are ready to destroy something. Just a TON of personality in this robot! The only thing I didn’t like was his feet…big and flat, not too much room for balance.
That being said his body allows amazing fluid posing. Double joints galore with plenty of rotating limbs allow this robot to hit some photogenic poses.
Also his hands are not super tight so swapping them has no drama. We have of course the fists, rage/splayed hands, holding hands and one big open splayed hands.
Also his arm can pop off…ok…this is actually a feature illustrated on the back…no idea really why…perhaps it is for some stuff for his separate effect kit…(hmm…should I order that? WTF?? $95??? sorry…)
Still this feature is compatible with other SRC effect parts…
Other accessories include this freaking huge scythe and abdomen plate for the Getter beam. The plate is an easy swap, and I think the beam version looks cooler. The scythe though…dear lord it is just gigantic!! The aforementioned parts pack that is out of my budget (really, $95??) also will have the Getter Tomahawks.
Finally, we have these sexy wings…they clip on the same way the other SRC backpacks do, so yes, you can use them on Mazinger or Grendizer. These are on ball joints so they can be posed…but unlike Shin Mazinger, they don’t fold bat like. They take up a lot of space..
Though when extended for full flight they make a statement! Again I have mentioned this before, but use Act 5 Staged…this guy is HEAVY.
I have mentioned his weight, but really this is the biggest SRC Go Nagi robot to date. I mean Grendizer was bigger than Shin Mazinger…and look at this comparison.
If you are a fan of the old school robots, you need this guy in your collection. Bandai’s SCR line really has blown me away. I am almost ready to sell off my Revoltechs if they make a full catalog they Kaiyado did. You can order yours at a pretty good price from one of my favorite stores here.
