Suddenly crave for a carrier toy after watching Space Battleship Yamato 2199. Have watch the live action movie a years back but following the entire remake anime of the original proofed to hard to resist the merchandise. If you're a fan of the anime series then this is a must have. I was looking for a budget toy of Space Battleship Yamato and was lucky to get this toy or should I say toys from an assembly of 8 trading figure boxes, released back in 2005 by Bandai. Mine was procured at S$80/-, of course if you are going for a more premium piece, you can go for the chogokin version. For details and perfection, the 1/700 scale Bandai model kit is another option. 

 An entire 8 piece set of the parts configure the entire battleship. Each trading figure set are section and modular of the ship form inside out, its pre-painted and the interior (rubber like internal components) can be seen once the outer hull is removed. When put together it formed a 15" Space Battleship Yamato on black plastic stand. In comparison, this version is little smaller than a 1/700 scale Bandai kit. The set required some assembly with those main turrets on plastic model kit tree, other parts are snap fitted so there is no gluing needed. 2 other the trading box even come with pre-painted miniature rubber planes. 

Because of the 8 sections joined together, lines and gaps can be seen running the model. Another drawback is that when handling the model, it tends to comes apart and I suggest using blu-tag in securing those alignment stands. Most of the parts are matted but some gloss and plastic looking, so I had sprayed matte epoxy to even the surface.

WOW !!!... super congrats pal !!!... i’m a Battleship Yamato fanatic, but when i asked some years ago, for the price of the collectible you’re publishing this time, it was "kinda" prohibitive after shipping, taxes and the like... so sorry for that, ;(((((... for an affordable assembling trading figure, i think all the drawbacks you mentioned are forgivable, i just love all that oldie/funky/classic gadgetry of the 70s, featured in this space battleship, it brings back some good memories actually !!!... =D

We really have a lot in common when it comes to mecha liking. Surely, I shouldn't complain on the imperfections, considering it to be trading figures. In fact, the made up was commendable and quite the collectibles. I'm a proud owner humming the opening song of the anime and held my head high and above. Lolz

Yeah! It's inspired by the WWII biggest battleship Yamato. In contrary to Japanese fake ambition during WWII, the anime projected the correct morale value of humanity survival and a hope of peace.
