Go Nagai hero is armed and dangerous
Shin Getter Robo cranked Go Nagai's classic combining robot up to 11 in 2004. For fans wanting something special to remember it by, RIOBOT is rolling out a swanky Black Getter variant.
The new figure blends the deadly look of Shin Getter with the style and color scheme of Black Getter from Getter Robo Armageddon. It comes with a variety of parts for different poses, including its indespensible Getter Tomahawk.
The weighty alloy figure stands about 200mm tall, with both its internal and external mechanics reproduced down to impressively small details. The 'bot is now available for preorder at 33,000 yen.
Presales close July 30, and figures are expected to ship out in September of this year.
