This is for fans of cannon fodder and those into mecha troopers like me! Here is Appleseed SWAT Guges Landmate trading figure. I believed this piece is the most sought after among the others. If I'm not wrong, the Japan release comes as a set of blind box and this is the special figure. Mine is the US release by Toycom in collaboration with Yamato Toys. It's open concept for the liberty of choosing the figure you like on card.
A bit on the history - Appleseed started as an original comic by Shirow Masamune and the figurine is based on the movie in 2004. Shirow Masamune other outstanding works include 'Ghost in the Ghost', 'Dominion' and 'Black Magic'.
Definitely the biggest figurine among 7 others as Landmate is the exoskeleton mechanism suit operated by human. When you look at the figure, you can literally see the smaller human arms and the bigger mechanic arms mimicking the wearer's arm movement. A brilliant idea that gives us a glimpse of robotic develop in the near future.
In the movie, these exo-suits were assigned to the eSWAT and the white scheme is usually the primary colour worn by most Police operatives and to the Japanese, white is the colour that represents justice. The consistency of the paint ain't perfectly smooth on close up but it is considerably neat and the prints on the figure certainly are sharp for a small figure. The figure would look bigger if it is not in kneeling pose.
