Shin Getter 2 comes from the most recent Getter Robo series, New Getter Robo (Shin Getta Robo 新・ゲッターロボ), created by Jun Kawagoe. In this series all the Getter Robo combinations get another makeover, updating them to modern times while still keeping the getter aesthetic.
The Revoltech Series No. 08 Super Robot Type Shin Getter 2 (リボルテックシリーズNo.08 スーパーロボタイプ新ゲッター2) is the second Revoltech figure released from Shin Getter Robo. It’s a character you don’t see too often in toy form, and it is a joy to have it as part of the Revoltech Series.
Getter 2 is built for speed, and it is evident in the design. Clean lines and a sleek profile help Getter 2 scream through the sky.
In regards to Revoltech joints, this figure has 12 joints in it and one on the stand, for a total of 13 joints.
Getter 2 has no accessories aside from a stand. But when you have a giant drill for one hand and a giant claw for another, do you really need any? The claw hand rotates and each claw is articulated. The drill moves, and is sharp as hell.
Not much else to say about this one, it’s awesome looking, and if you are getting the Getters, you gotta get Getter 2!
