VERY spiffy, but I'm not

VERY spiffy, but I'm not sure how I feel about the lack of Spacer...

Looks like they handled the curly Screw Crusher blades by making them rigid and just designing a hinge joint in the forearm that cuts right through them. I like that. What I don't like, however, is the apparent lack of shooting fist. Boooo!

The sculpt looks better than the SoC, but we'll have to see what the final product looks like...

Needs his saucer!

It's different, but I approve of the change to the front of his leg to allow ankle movement.

... ... ...Would you say the horns are adequately sized? My gut tells me they need to be a tiny bit longer maybe...

Well, the new ankle design

Well, the new ankle design is sort of a copy of what Bandai did with the SoC. I think the SoC was done better, though...the gaps on this one are too obvious. Then again, this is an unpainted prototype: when it's all finished in gloss black, it may be tough to notice.

As for the horns, I'd say that they're the right length, but they need to be angled down slightly (so that they look more horizontal), and then curve up more at the very tips. This is actually pretty surprising because all of High Dream's more recent Grendizer figures (the 12-inch PVC figure and the tiny 4-inch diecast with the Spazers, which can be seen near the bottom of this TBDX thread) have nearly identical head sculpts, with the horns looking more or less perfect.

HL Pro. 6" die cast action figure metaltech grendizer

The pre-production sample will be on display at the NY toy fair '09, then you will have a better idea of how it look, it is ultra dynamic and you can do so many sort of pose..., alright I'll not be at the fair this Year to meet with you guys though..., sorry :(, I'm too busy with some new project,
Btw, we had the Lucca show in Italy few weeks ago and we had the 24 Inch Kotetsu jeeg at the booth, it is a great great piece, I'll send pictures later : ), not sure if you like Jeeg though...

I'm hoping it'll be cheaper

I'm hoping it'll be cheaper then the SOC. But if it's made out of Diecast, that's unlikely

It is cheaper

It is cheaper but has some very interesting gimmicks, one of which I discovered today!

HIGH DREAM - METALTECH 01 - GRENDIZER

Attention chachipower: You are wrong regarding Grendizer's head.

If you remove the head (which sits on a ball joint), you will notice a removable part which covers the back of the neck.

When you remove it, you will find that the back of the neck (underneath it) is painted too and has two other points of articulation so that the neck can be moved backwards and the head forward ready to be fixed and posed to the up coming Metaltech 01+ Spazer!
