Akira is very well known anime, it have a deep political meaning of Japanese culture. Apparently Leonardo Dicaprio is already on take to make a movie out of it. Well, this news is not about that, is about this sick cool toys from Project BM. This bike is 1/6 scale of Kaneda’s Bike. Comes with 3 different LED color, blue , yellow and red for the dashboard. You can open up the bike’s body for inside mechanical works. Totally awesome, comes with heavy price tags of 39900 Yen, or about … 450 USD some Japanese online store have it for sale for about 300 US. Worth the money ?? Yes I think soo..
Aoshima rather known as Miracle House are rather famous for their SG series Getter. The only problem are they making too many version for the same model. Lately I was looking into getting on Black Getter robots model. I actually really wanted to get the Fewture Black Getter which are damn expensive ( price up to $1000 – $1500 USD). At the moment there are 3 versions of Aoshima Black Getters they are:
- Black Getter Normal Version (With Ryoma)
- Black Getter Metalic Kawaii Version (With Dr Saotome)
- Black Getter Matt Blood / Weathering Version (With Ryoma)
After close investigation with no doubt I can say the Weathering Version of is the best amongs all, not only comes with the blood stain it also glow in the dark. The only problem is there not much stock available for this version. It can cost up to $250 US.
I decided to get the Metalic Kawaii Version, as I feel there are nothing special on getting the normal version of it.
You can wait until Bandai release their Black Getter SOC.. maybe it just a matter of time !
However it is up to your preference which one to get 😀
If you confused you can collect them all .. hehe!
Not long ago, I got an Alto Custom Bandai 1/60 SDX from big bad toy store it is on 20% discount. Not a bad price, shipment is a bit expensive but they do reliable shipment with tracking. You can cancel any order as long as it is not shipped from their warehouse.
Surprisingly enough Alto Custon 1/60 does look a bit small. Not very satisfied with the stock look I decided to get more parts for it. The Armored part produced by Tamashii. Tamashii only sell parts, limited edition toys for bandai stuff on the web. Bought the part for $99 USD. The part for box is so huge its about almost 3 time bigger compared the actual Alto. The parts are made of plastics. Great colour and high in details. Makes the alto custom so loaded … Worth the bucks! I definitely recommend this kit for all of you who own Alto Custom.
