IMG_3177 400x599

Finally lugged these guys out of their boxes to take some shots. Love 'em. Chunky, heavy, die-cast with a retro, junkyard vibe going on. Designed and sculpted by the late, great Taku "Professor Robo" Sato, this figure is truly a work of art. I liked it so much, I had to get this toy in both colorways. As you can see, the detail is beyond amazing. Look at the three pilots!! check out the tiny fire extinguisher!!??

Am i right in understanding these are 16 inches tall?

toybot studios said...

no, no. that would be huge.... they are even less than 12 inches tall. I would say around 10 inches

Yeah i did a bit of research and found they were 9.5 inches tall.
They are selling the silver version at big bad toy store for 130 bucks, i think i'm going to pick one up. Thanks a lot for the heads up on this.

toybot studios said...

that is such a screaming deal. i paid double that. when they went on sale at BBTS, I had just ordered the silver one as well....

Yeah, i felt that way when i saw it too.....and not even from a collectors standpoint thinking about the resale value but....in terms of appreciative value....to have something thats die cast and that well crafted for that price almost seems immoral lol. I think this figure will look great next to Bertie.

Just want to point out that this Ex Gokin Boss Borot is actually not designed and sculpted by the late Professor Sato. You can refer to the names of designers and sculptors on Artstorm's official page here: http://artstorm.co.jp/exgokin_bossborot.html
