I bet that dude on ebay who’s been trying to sell a case of OJR Twinhorns for so long is pist now! I panel-lined it, because otherwise the details on the red parts would be totally lost. The “present” for Vol. 5 is… a square. Specifically, one of the plates from the Diorama base sets, or Gustav’s trailers. Color me “meh”.
Sea Panther (poor romanization for Panzer?) is one of the most anticipated reissues in the Graphics line. It pretty much sold out instantly, leaving lots of people in the lurch, preorders be damned. Thankfully they’re doing another run in December, but those could go just as quickly. And with good reason: Sea Panther has never been reissued, and the original is hellllllla rare. The mechanism is totally awesome—it rolls along, while all the legs move about creepily. For being one-piece legs, the movement is nice and fluid. The bonus “present” in this set is the gun sprue from Remodel Set No. 1.
The only bummer to be found: if you like applying stickers, you will be saddened by the quality of the foil sticker sheet. I ended up using stickers from spare OJR sheets.
This funny looking lion type used to be rarer than rocking horse poops until now. These Graphics kits have been pretty limited, though, so it could return to such rarity soon. The “present” for Vol. 10 is the two sprues from Figure Set No. 2 (Empire Soldiers). Empire soldiers are giants among men.
