Since I have been getting into and somewhat impressed with the Chogokin series of toys from Bandai, I decided to get this guy. Why? Well I’m not too sure. All I knew about him is that he is a remote controlled robot of sorts from the olden days of anime and the better half likes him. I gotta admit that his cool chunky retro-style really appealed to me too.
After keeping an eye out for him for a while, I noticed that despite his modest original price, he commands a huge amount of money on the second hand/after market. Actually, I should clear that up a little bit. There were two colour variations for this dude initially. One was a flat blue and another a metallic blue, with an extra character. I decided to get the metallic blue. Naturally, it’s the rarer more expensive one. Luckily I found one a reasonable price. And now we shall have a look at him!
