Armarauders‬: EF-JAT-47FG ‪‎Bellerophon‬ (Cam's Custom) Deluxe Edition

The box is huge!!!!
First saw the prototype exhibited @ STGCC two years back and finally owned it after a long wait. I totally love the mecha design that came closed to Robotech. 

The pricing is pretty premium like what we would pay for Hot Toys, but buying EF-JAT-47FG ‪‎Bellerophon‬ (Cam's Custom) Deluxe Edition is really worth it as it came tons of accessories and some well made that IMHO, this is one of the best toy I had bought. The figure is heavy with plenty of die-cast. Moreover, the figure was so well painted and looked like air sprayed by pro modeller. 

Tall figure that stands approximately 9", which meant it towered over most of my Master Grade Gundam. The figure is amazingly nimble, very humanoid with 70 points of articulations. Unlike many toys, the accessories held up well to the figure and did not fell apart easily. 

The toy packed with gimmicks like missile hatches opened to reveal the missiles within that that shared similarities with Macross VF-1J Great Battroid Pack GBP.



Full Gear Bellerophon: Cam’s Special, and it will come equipped with custom full gear armor, fully articulated arms, legs, feet and hands, the sized-to-scale pilot as well as a detailed and sturdy docking stand from which to display the Bellerophon.

I also like the fact that the toy came with a small pilot that fitted into the cockpit at the chest. Reminded me of 80's toys like Starcom and M.A.S.K

The pilot even had a jetpack and rifle. 



Melee weapon seized from the alien tribe

One of the most impressive features is the fingers. Full points of articulation with no problem from holding weapons to clenching fist. Scrapped off the concept of optional hands!

Figure goes down to kneeling pose without difficulty

With simple assembling of pillars and platform, we have the docking station! It also served as a stand for the heavy figure. Very sturdy docking station that allows you to make minor adjustments to how you want the dock station to look like. I think the caution straps looks good however I feel that the choice of colour for dock station seems awkward. 


It's not called deluxe pack for nothing! The pilot even came with a clear stand that used clip or peg to hold the pilot pose like Cam is floating. 




The helmet of ‪‎Bellerophon can be swapped with a clear part if you like to see the brain matter. lolz.




Mecha Workshop is proud to announce an all-new line of action figures featuring the Bellerophon mech. Think of the Bellerophon similar the RX-78 from the original Mobile Suit Gundam. It will function as the core design, the “skeleton” of the Armarauders figures and will have interchangeable add-ons that can connect with and customize future toys. In a war against an alien threat that spans the galaxy, a soldier must adapt, alter, and conform as needed in order to survive and prevail. Named after the hero of Greek mythology who slew the monstrous Chimera, the Bellerophon is designed to function as a multi-purpose and highly mobile infantry unit—an ultra-advanced mech that serves as both grunt and warhorse against the onslaught of a relentless enemy. With the addition of specially designed optional equipment, the Bellerophon serves as a “jack of all trades” on the battlefield, and can be called upon to serve on a wide range of specialty missions.

Talking about things that are worth, I don’t want to know the price of this mecha or surely I will be shocked, but looking at this beast in all its glory, I know every single cent was well invested !!!... HEHE... Do I sound excited ???... Well, it’s because that’s exactly the case !!!... No wonder why it’s in the same level of price of Hot Toys figures and in some senses it’s even better, since as you rightly pointed: there is no need of extra hands when you have well designed hands, with excellent articulation... Gorgeous design, with a retro feeling, neat, with a clean color scheme and all those tiny markings, usual in the state-of-the-art mechas... Uhmmm, just in case of inheritance, I would like to be in the list LOLOLOLOLOL !!!... =OOOOO

Wow this is awesome!!! I love the fact that it comes with openable pilot compartment and as a bonus the pilot figure can also be taken out from the cockpit and you can pose him alongside or outside the gigantic machine, I always dreaming and hoping that Gundams at 1/100 scale could have such feature though it's almost impossible either due to the tiny size of the human/pilot in comparison to the mobile suit.

I suppose this is what that Power Doll mecha looks like if it got high end treatment. Certainly an eye-catching display!

Heehee! I did burst my budget on this toy but something I felt very happy with I held it in my hands. It's like the toy has all the features we wanted in our mecha toys in the past.

Yeah bro! The pilot is such a novelty that it brought back plenty of nostalgia. I guess PG Gundam would be recommended for bigger pilot. Just that few PG have been introduced so far...

So right to associate both these mecha as they shared a lot in common in design and very grunt units. I wanted to add FMP! Gernback to this family too : )

I find the docking station colour a bit off. So didn't put it on display. In fact, I sold the hangar away ^_^
