Hyper Jet Robo Gashapon
Review by quinncat
When I look at this Gashapon version of Hyper Jet Robo from the "Machine Robo Rescue" series, all I see is a strong longing to get the real one. But alas, I cannot afford it, so for now, I'll have to make due.
The figure comes in 16 different pieces but, it doesn't retain any of the functionality of the original, so that means no separate figures or full gattai.
After construction, this lil' Hyper Jet Robo is actually really cool! The paintwork is very nice for the small size. He features silver feet that act as water containers, and red shins with white and blue highlights. Fake fists are also molded in red on the backs of each leg. The body is made to look like the Jet Robo figure in body mode so, it features many very accurate paint apps, and fake little arms on his back. The shoulders have white paint that only covers the front, while the back is left bare. The arms are also pretty well painted, with really well molded clenched fists.
He features 7 points of articulation, so you can still achieve some limited poses. However, he does have problems standing up.
Overall, Hyper Jet Robo is cool little candy toy, that doesn't skimp on the paint, and is a neat substitute for those like me, who can't afford the original.
