Grendizer SRC Review by Gold
The following review was originally prepared by Gold in August 2013 on the Robot-Japan Forum:
Hi gang, here's a simple review for the Super Robot Chogokin Grendizer
Extendable ankle joint. To help Grendizer pull of excellent poses.
I have to say I’m really impressed with how Bandai worked out a way to make the Screw Crusher fins work around the elbows. Great engineering thinking here IMHO.
Hand Beams! (Would’ve been nice if we had some sort of effects parts here)
Screw Crusher Punch!
I’m not 100% sure, but I seem to remember in one episode, Grendizer used the Screw Crushers as melee weapons, instead of shooting them at an opponent. Please correct me if I’m wrong on this.
Lol… this made me laugh when I took the pic.
Since we’ve yet to see a final prototype for the Spacer, here’s SRC Grendizer with the GX-04S Spacer.
Fits right in, no leg shafting required. The lock doesn’t rub or do damage either.
(Apologies, I didn’t detach the Spin Saucer blades from the tree from my GX-04S set and for this shot I didn’t feel like digging up the regular GX-04 for them, just try to ignore the large black undersides of the saucers. )
Group shots fun.
Double Lighting Buster!
Triple Mazinger Blade!
Punches in bunches
Boy, I’d hate to be on the receiving end of that. Imagine the terror on General Dark’s face when he realizes the last thing he will ever see is 6 fists flying at him at the same time.
Size and weight comparisons
With the GX-04S
With the Revoltech Grendizer (which reminds me, Revoltech never released a Spacer did they?)
With the Chrome Metaltech 01’
Mazinger Z (128 Grams), Great Mazinger (136 Grams), Grendizer (171 Grams), Shin Mazinger Z (148 Grams)
Diecast parts include:
-Practically the whole torso
-Shoulder and groin joints
I thought about doing a The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly here, by honestly, I just totally love this figure. I can’t seem to find anything that disappoints me (maybe the lack of Hand Beam effects, or the lack of the foil stamps on the SRC boxes starting with Grendizer).
Your mileage may vary but this one seems to be the best Grendizer figure I have.
