It’s been quite some time that I’ve seen a brand new product surrounding Gainax’s Gurren Lagann series. Today, Japanese plastic model manufacturer Plaiobot announced that they are taking pre-orders for a fairly large Super Galaxy Gurren Lagann plastic model kit, and I have to say, it looks pretty damn cool.
The Super Galaxy Gurren Lagann figure stands a pretty sizable 220 mm (just over 8.5 inches) and features a plethora of design options that match the design that was found in the anime. In addition to the five molded colors, the head and chest are pre-painted, so all you have to do is to assemble it and the crossbow gunmen ‘Super Galaxy Gurren Lagann’ is in your hands!
The two towering Giga Drills on each shoulder can be removed and attached to the arms to recreate the ‘Super Galaxy Giga Drill Break’!
If you’re into plastic models like our Editor-in-Chief, this might be something that you want to look into. Also, check out our weekly Gunpla live streams on our Twitch channel.
The kits are going for ¥9,900 through amiami and are expected to start shipping in August. This is a good kit for amateurs, considering the major parts are already pre-painted, and the Giga Drills give you some options to play with customization.
