The following review was originally prepared by Gold on 3/14/11 on the Robot-Japan Forum:



Hi all, I finally got around to handling the Andromeda. Here's a quick look. :)

Light up thrusters

Double Wave Motion Gun 


Launch bay:

Be mindful of this section when removing Andromeda from the display base.

Like the Yamato, optional display base arms to pose the Andromeda in “elevating” angle.

Cosmo Tigers II

Some details:
-Measures 16.5” long, same as the Yamato
-Weighs roughy 680 Grams. Yamato was 500 Grams
-Diecast parts in the front section, thrusters, top part of the ship (where the cannons plug in) and top half of each cannon.
-Not really much in terms of gimmicks. Yamato had better.
-Electronics require 4 AAA batteries
-Button number 5 on the remote has no effect
-Some problems with the Infra red electronics. I had to repeatedly push the buttons on the remote for the commands to register on the Andromeda. I don’t think the problem is with the remote (viewing it through a camera, I can see the IR blinking so that means the remote is working), so the problem seems to be with the receiver on the Andromeda. I tried wiping the receiver plate on the Andromeda and that’s when the IR worked. Anyone else encounter this?
