We’ve got good news and bad news for Go Nagai fans. The good news is, there’s an awesome Super Chogokin Great Mazinger figure coming out this month. The bad news? You’ll only be able to get it at one store!
Tamashii Nations Tokyo is the first flagship store dedicated to the brand, which produces the popular diecast Chogokin figure line and its higher-end variants. Mecha fans know it as the place to go for high-end reproductions of their favorite bots, with Mazinger Z as its first-ever release.
The new Super Chogokin version Great Mazinger comes with dual Mazinger Blades, removable Atomic Punch gauntlets, and a a Great Booster that can be displayed on the unit or off to the site.
The base also bears the figure’s model number, GX-02R, as well as a reminder that it’s only available at Tamashii Nations Tokyo. The figure will go on sale September 21 as part of the shop’s Go Nagai exhibition.
Even if you can’t make it out to Tokyo, live events from the exhibition will be streamed to YouTube on September 19. Be sure to bookmark the page and set a reminder!
The Tamashii Nations Tokyo x Go Nagai Exhibition will run from September 14-29.
