I have previously blogged about the movie version of Panzer World Galient Tetsukyojin and finally I managed to get the TV version. Like the movie version, this figure is also manufactured by CMS. Unfortunately, CMS had seized operation. The movie version has chogokin but this version is made entirely all of plastic.
The figure stands about 6" tall and comes with quite a number of accessories. Interchangeable parts so the sword can be switch from solid blade to a whip slash. I think this is a cool gimmick! The figure has a medieval design in sword and shield yet carries modern weapon such as the shoulder and hand cannons. There is an optional part like the small dagger pouch on the left leg as shown on pic.
The figure can be transformed into flight mode and tank modes however it doesn't look cool so I decided not go into that. Besides, the joints are flimsy hence deterring the transforming and posing. The figure of Panzer World Galient is not easy to come by, therefore I'm still glad to have it.
By the overall mecha design, combined with the predominantly red color scheme, this collectible reminds me the Sazabi Gundam, albeit less beefy!... CM’s created a lot of great collectibles, many of them for affordable prices, at least at the moment of their original release and maybe that was the main factor for its rather early departure from the market: they just tried to offer too much at once and finances cannot endure that kind of pace for a long time... What a pity, because that company was pioneer in several aspects of our hobby...
Galient/Tetsukyojin is definitely one of the cooler Knight mecha out there and goes along well with Sirbine. I think Wave's Diecast Action figure is still the best for this guy but the Robot Damashii is decent substitute
Bro, I think your current hobby is to hunt "rare" stuff in the market..upgrade already!
They probably took too many licenses at one go.. It’s a pity they were gone..
Yeah! I saw your pics ... I’m now tempted to get the movie version...
So happened to find this on Carousell. The seller is very nice ...
