Even in these harsh times, toy and model collectors can stay winning with any number of diverse releases coming their way soon. One upcoming figure we couldn’t miss the chance to share with you is this mega posable Lazengann courtesy of Sentinel and Union Creative. Reminding us why we loved the modern classic Tengan Toppa Gurren Lagann in the first place, it perfectly replicates the show’s unique visual styling bringing it to the third dimension with the appropriate punch. Looking as sleek as ever, you wouldn’t realize Lazengann’s from a show that’s just about old enough to go to high school.
The fully titled Pryobotte Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann Lazengann will go on sale next February though you can pre-order it now. Retailing for just under 50 dollars, you’re getting a lot of bang for your buck for just how good Sentinel did on the sculpt here. Looking like a cross between an Evangelion unit and Kill La Kill’s iconic Senketsu school uniform, it’s one of our favorite designs. Plus the model comes with a number of prop weapons as well as a small Lord Genome who piloted the robot in the show.
While it’s heyday is long gone, it’s hard to overstate just how big Gurren Lagann was and how influential it would be. For starters, despite being a Gainax show it magnified the independent careers of Hiroyuki Imaishi, Kazuki Nakashima, and Sushio enough so to eventually lead to Studio Trigger. In fact many lump Gurren Lagann into the Trigger canon despite existing before the studio. Getting an extremely nice looking Lazengann figure in 2021, a mech that only featured in one or two episodes, reminds us that this series still flares in the hearts of fans everywhere.
