Paul Kaiju Gobo King First Edition...!!

Toybot Studios - 3 July, 2015 - 14:49
Paul Kaiju King Gobo

The stars were aligned for this one as I won the recent raffle for the first edition Gobo King in black vinyl with metallic paints. Holy smokes is this thing a beast! 12 inches tall, 7 points of articulation and get this: a removable helmet. The details on this guy with the tank treads, chest gatling gun, disc blade, wooden back door and chain are amazing.
