My first reaction to seeing this MOC and presentation by zi zy was a flood of nostalgia. My buddy and I used to love to go to a Japanese toy store in LA called Pony Toy. We would gawk for ages at all the cool stuff from across the Pacific. This is so well done it looks exactly like a classic Japanese model kit, the kind we would lust after but couldn't afford (jeez, I've always been poor).
Kids from the decade that brought us The Gong Show, bell bottoms and Star Wars will remember these large iconic robots from across the sea. Well thanks to the creative mind of builder MacLane we're going to get a whole series of these soon. It's LEGO meets super heroes meets 70's Japanese robots, and I can't wait to see more.
