Super Robot Chogokin Anti-Gurren Lagann is a thing

Why it is a thing, that I don't know the answer to

People like Gurren Lagann and some of those fans were quite fancy of the recently-released Super Robot Chogokin of said titular robot. Coming from the depths of Super Robot Wars is this palette-swap of Gurren Lagann, Anti-Gurren Lagann! You see it's black and made by the Anti-Spirals, and uh yeah did we mention it's black?!

Okay, there are a couple of differences between this and normal Gurren Lagann other than color. As you'll notice, the trademark glasses are gone and the drills resemble spikes more than a drill. That's not to say that there aren't any drills as SRC Anti-Gurren Lagann comes with 33 of them. These drills are longer than the ones included in the Drill Set of Manliness and are able to be used in combination with the original SRC Gurren Lagann. Perhaps there is some value to this figure after all.

Value will come at a price though as the Super Robot Chogokin Anti-Gurren Lagann is only available through the Premium Bandai Shop. Just pretend that you didn't expect that to be the case. Orders are being taken now (for the convenience of your proxy) until its June release date. You'll have to part with with 6,090¥ for this. Look on the brightside, maybe if people actually buy this, they'll actually make the SRC King Kittan I would've preferred over this.
