Why didn't Yamato make a

Why didn't Yamato make a large toy of this guy to go with the other ones? I know it's a partsformer but still it could have been done even though it's a badguy robot (which rarely sells in Japan unless it's of a popular design).

Maybe they didn't make a large toy of it because it's a partsformer, and it's a bad-guy robot.

The MSC? Eh...

I picked up the MSC Proto Garland, and I can't say it's the best figure. The gun hold is very solid, at the cost of a permanent trigger finger, the swivelling biceps fall out easily when moved, and there's no ankle joint. That being said, for 500 yen, it was a very nice deal, and it looks and feels great.

hmm

Wait, I thought the Organic Hobby Proto Garland had a removable weapon, just like the Harguns.
Also, they all have ankle joints - they're just limited by the sculpt. If you pull the post the ball joint is mounted on part of the way out of its hole, you might get some more mobility out of it (or you might break the post, if you're not careful).
Also also, the Atelier Sai Proto Garland is a lot sexier.

Removable weapons and ankles

The weapon is removable, but he's still got his hand permanently stuck in a trigger finger shape, unless he's gesturing to something.
Also, the ankle joints are there (one of his feet likes falling off) but the armour... flares (?) prevent sideways movement.

Oh, isn't it supposed to be Hargun, not Hagan? Maybe the name was translated wrong for the American DVD release of MZ23.

Hargan - Beam Saber

I appreciate the intricate details & articulation that was craftly put into this obscure mecha. The Hargan is an impressive size of a toy for a collector's price. So impressive it's a sin.

As much as I would like to have a toy like that as one of my latest installments to my robot collection, I'm afraid I'll have to pass this one off my list.

The Hagan indeed is equipped w/ a blaster and a shield, but what Organic Hobby failed to add with this toy in package is a special beam saber & an extra set of hands. I'm only guessing the hands the toy got are undetachable & I can live with that. It's not a partsformer & I can live with that, but I don't think I can live without it's beam saber.

Nice review as ususal, but I'll just save my Otaku budget for Yamato's Hargun if they ever come around it.
