Ankouku Daishogun II?
Very nice looking revision from the preview shots. I REALLY hope to see a review on this one. You have to love bad guy gokins.
I have been looking into this release of Ankouku Daishogun and it seems it will be a repaint with new sculpts of the head on the chest, and the shoulder armor. There were some people reporting that there's affiliation listed with another company on this re-release. (PRODUCT IMPORTED FROM COSMIC GROUP) ?
I don't think the round armor plates or the part on the back made the cut from these prototype shots. It appears they throw in two pvc figs now instead of the usual one figure. It looks to be an affordable option for those who missed the first Aoshima releases- now very expensive.
I have researched the total cost to acquire this and decided to just wait it out and see if the rumors become fact and Aoshima releases a gokin of "King Hell!!" This artwork has me praying they do.
My cash could go toward King Hell instead as I have the first one anyhow.
