Space Runaway Ideon 伝説巨神イデオン









You may have find this robot familiar appearing in games like 'Super Robo Wars' series or it might give you the impression that it's a gigantic GM from Gundam series. Actually this robot is known as the 'Legendary Giant God Ideon' from the anime 'Space Runaway Ideon 伝説巨神イデオン' that traced all the way back to year 1980. This 1/810 scale Ideon by Aoshima was a reissue to commemorate 30th anniversary of the anime. It was given a repackage and included as a special item to August 2010 issue of Dengeki Hobby magazine. The kit came all red (all white for the vintage) so the other colours you see on the finished product were hand painted by me. If you don't mind the rough works. There's only a few parts to snap fit but plastic cement was required. At certain areas, especially the legs, obvious gaps could be seen on the seam. Since the kit is a design from the past, you got to forgive the robot looking unproportionate as well as the articulation of the limbs only restricted to just back and forth.

that is so classic and a great addition to anyone's collection. You can see how cool it is with the transformation and the 'gundam like' robot.

You are so right bro, there is a chogokin version of Ideon in a huge box but I didn't set my my budget on that. I might settle with the action figure by Yamato which look pretty decent too.

Bro, you were exposed to this anime early than I am I guess. I like the mecha but have not actually watched any of the episode.

I don't remember seeing this one but the design is truly during those era.

Oh yes, it's like those super duper old Gundam Macross toys. Nostalgia...
