Aoshima always makes some great diecast and this is no exception. It carries a lot of metal for such a thin robot. It comes in a giant thick styro tray carefully wrapped in plastic baggies. This guy was originally very expensive but due to lack of buyers, the price was eventually dropped to about $35. So I naturally picked it up. Wow...I wonder why there was lack of interest? This thing is really cool! Definitely not for kids as there is some very dangerously sharp plastic and diecast parts.
