Two New Customs from Rotobox

Rotobox have just released two new killer customs. The first is a Celsius version of Spider-Man 2099 which has an awesome metallic blue paint job and fierce arm stabbies. The second is another Qee version of Voltron. At first glance it’s pretty similar to Rotobox’s previous take on Voltron, but check it out and you’ll see some great new details, especially the logo on his lion belly.

Jumbo Combattler V from Rotobox
Rotobox continue their stunning customization work with this tribute to Combattler Godaikin toy. True to the original, this Qee version combines five pieces to form the full robot. It’s a one-off and has already been sold, but you can still drool at all the photos here.
Albotip: The “V” in “Combattler V” is pronounced like the letter (as opposed to “five”) and stands for “Victory.”

Barf: Disney Mech
Disney have no problem cashing in. We’re up to 107 Dalmatians now, right? They’ll even design their own mech for the Micky-loving otaku, because that’s a demographic. This metallic bastard is being released as part of Bandai’s Chogokin line, which is usually very high quality, both in design and build. This is just embarrassing though.

Obscenely Awesome Mazinger Z Chogokin Figure
OMFG. Look at this thing. It’s like the giant robot equivalent of Kaws’ Dissected Companion. The super accurate recreation from the original Mazinger series comes with a bunch of LEDs and full size docking bay. It’s almost a foot tall. For the $440 price tag, I was hoping for something more like three feet. It’s still awesome and I still want one though.

A Little Bit on the Virtual-On Side: Virtual-On Force (AKA Virtual-On 4) is getting the Platinum Collection treatment next month. The re-release will run about $35 and feature Fei-Yen on the cover. I hate Greatest Hits / Platinum Collection banners on my game art, but the Fei-Yen art makes up for it. Plus, the price is too good to refuse.
