We were in extreme AWE when we read the news about the 40th Anniversary Edition Soul of Chogokin DX (SOC DX) Mazinger Z. The thing is HUGE! haha, its like the perfect grade of the SOC line. It stands around 300mm or 12 inches which enabled Bandai to incoporate lots of new features and details. The armors can be removed to expose the all the hydraulics and metal workings of Mazinger Z. Not only that, they also incorporated LED lights on the eyes and chest to replicate the activation sequence and breast fire attack which BTW could be controlled using a remote. And if that already makes you happy, there is more! You get to have a specially designed hanger as a base. The hangar can be used to hold and display the armor pieces that are not in use. Comes with two spotlights and cranes as well. This is a must have for Mazinger Z fans!
The release date is approximately this December 2012 with the price of around 37,000 yen / 21,000 php / 460 usd
You need 7 pieces of triple A batteries for this figure (2 for mecha, 2 for remote and 3 for the hangar base)
Packaging size is 420 x 540 x 320 mm
Mazinger Z height – 300m
Hangar height – 380 x 280 x 280 mm
Haven’t had even one SOC figure before. But it seems this will be our first because we want one! haha — Who wouldn’t love a big ass Mazinger Z on his cabinet?
Crossing our fingers! hope to really get one!
