It has finally come into being. I remember gushing when it was shown off at a TamashiiFes, but now we have a date, price, and sample. Daizyujin, better known to Americans as the original Megazord, will be released this September for 5,040 yen. It may seem like a steep price, but it's packed.
As you'll notice in the header, it comes equipped with the Godhorn (Power Sword) along with effect parts for the Lightning Cut as well as another set for head laser attack. Yes, this is a purely nostalgic purchase for me, but like I said before, this is the Megazord figure I've always wanted. It can actually pose and do things. While it won't be able to split apart into the various Guardian Beasts/Zords, I will gladly trade that function in for die-cast and articulation.
Pre-orders aren't up just yet, but with the gallery going up, I'd expect them soon. Also, to whoever is running Tamashii Nations and the folks at Saban, allow this to come stateside and while you're at it, throw in Dragon Caesar/Dragonzord so I can be fully happy. If I may indulge myself fully here, S.H. Figuarts of Geki and Burai would be amazing too.
