Sorry, I afraid of breaking the antennas on the head and as such only transformed the toy to tank mode. The toy can actually be transformed into 4 modes ~ Flier, Tank, Gerwalk and battroid


Please see instruction manual for the transformation

I finally got this super rare 1/40 Orguss II Olson Orgroid Special with the assistance of Tokyohunter. It was by chance that I found Tokyohunter's blog while desperately looking for Tamashii DX Macross Chogokin parts online. It so happened that Joseph (Tokyohunter) is based in Japan and could help source for toys in Japan. I had also preordered these from Joseph:

1) Bandai DX Chogokin Ghost & Weapons Set
2) Bandai DX Chogokin Galia 4 Fold Set
3) Bandai DX Chogokin Alto's full armour parts

This 1/40 Orguss II Olson Special that I have is in very mint condition with the joints still extremely tight. There is minimum shelf wear to the box and the window perfectly intact with only a few minor dents. It's stickers unapplied and comes complete with weapons, instruction manual and catalogue. Well, 1/40 Orguss II Olson Special comes with price but I still grateful I found Tokohunter.

Retro as it is, the company Takatoku that made Orguss and Macross toys in the 80s was no longer in existence. Leon, thank you for the constant support!

LEon said...

I'm more amazed that you've got the Standard Emann type that the Olsen!

That's incredible!!!!

Dennis aka Katsuden said...

I thought the standard Emann type is the more common. I got them too from Ebay. Thx for visiting my blog!
