Review: Super Robot Chogokin Mazinger Z Jumbo Machineder Color
The newest Super Robot Chogokin to join the ranks is the Dynamic Official Online Shop Exclusive Mazinger Z: Jumbo Machineder (Machinder) Color. If you can’t already tell, this is a straight repaint of the original SRC Mazinger Z figure. Here is the review.
Mazinger Z Jumbo Machineder Color
Figure: This Jumbo Machineder Color repaint of the Mazinger Z figure doesn’t bring anything new to the mold. The only thing that’s significant is that it’s colored to homage the old Jumbo Machinder. The arms and legs are a nice shade of metallic blue paint, and the torso has a nice tampo on it. That’s it. Am I the only one that thinks that this would be amazing with modified rocket legs, a different left hand, newly molded shoulders, and wheels on its feet?
Accessories: As you guessed, we simply get the same accessories as the original set. Only this time, these accessories are color matched to the mecha. For how much this figure was, I’m disappointed that the Jet Scrander wasn’t included.
Overall: Well, it’s just another Mazinger Z figure. While it’s a thing of beauty, I’m not so sure that it homages the Jumbo Machinder figure very much. I honestly feel like this is simply a missed opportunity. How cool would it have been if this was a unique mold? Bandai should have at least used the Shin Mazinger Z mold. Either way, this is only recommended for die-hard Mazinger Z fans, and even then… you’re just getting a repaint. If you have money to throw around, invest in SRC Devilman Mazinger Z instead.
