Reissued by Wave, and nearly identical to the OJR, but much much cheaper (at least when it first came out). This one is near impossible to shoot, as you can tell. I’ll try to get the lighting up action sometime soon. Watch out for sunlight, as this one likes to turn yellow (GRRR).
I had an OJR, got tired of it (and needed money), sold it, regretted it, then got this bargain priced reissue. The original had magenta caps and blue clear bits. Earlier this week I finally summoned the energy required to do the panel lining and detailing that was so badly needed. Before, the undercarriage was just a solid lump of grey, and you couldn’t see any of the details. I also broke out the weathering markers to dirty up the armor, and hide the fact that it was starting to show sun-discoloration.
Part of garage kit company Wave’s set of 24-scale OJR reissues. It comes with some extra pieces to make “full armor mode”, as well as a build-it-yourself 1/20 unpainted pilot. A few months before this one came out, Toy’s Dream Project also reissued Deathpion, with the original cap and lens colors (blue-purple and clear blue, respectively).
