Panzer World Galient belonged to one of those pioneer mecha anime that tapped on the story of knight fantasy whereby civilization goes back to primitive after technology was lost and giant robots became ancient relic, mined for military used. Galient is the legendary giant robot aka 'Panzer' in this Sunrise anime. Surprisingly, Bandai didn't make figure of this classic robot where as companies like Kotobukiya (trading figure, Unifive (action figure), CMS (chogokin) and Wham! (high end figure) had taken interests in the anime merchandises. CMS had done an re-imagination of Galient, revamped to look more medieval.
There were two versions of CMS chogokins, one normal released with metallic paint coating and another limited edition released in original T.V anime series colour. I certainly preferred the metallic coating which I'm having. The details of the toy is amazing with nice curves on the armor and weapons. The toy feels very heavy and solid since CMS claimed that it comprised of 90% metal. Even the sword is die-cast. I must say hardly any chogokin toys come genuinely close to this amount of metal composite. Due to the bulk of the toy, the articulation was sacrificed. Accessories are simple for this box set. There's only optional hands, sword and shield. A really nice gimmick is that the sword can be slotted into the shield so the shield kind of act like a scabbard, holding the sword. There are also some round plastic parts where they are supposed to cover the holes to hide the screws.
