EHI-05 Brachios Newtype

OMG the pilot doesn’t ride in the head!? I thought I lost the chest gun pictured on the box, but apparently it was never included. Phew! I seem to see the “newtype” variant on auctions more often than the “regulartype”, which has silver armor and dull red underbits—like the NJR, but then the gun and cockpit are black.

EZ-012 Brachios(aur)

I have one of these MIB, if anyone’s interested. Fun fact: this almost always shows up on ebay listings as “Grachiosaur”. Hasbro font fail!

GRZ-004 Dark Nessios

A big part of the Rebirth line seems to be re-tooling and updating old designs. This one takes Brachios and makes it into a plesiosaur, which in turn makes me very happy. In the ancient times (2001), a hobby magazine showed a Brachios-to-Plesio kitbash (one, two), so I’ve been hoping for an official bash for some time. In other news, Hydrazoid is sad at not being the coolest (and only) plesiozoid anymore.

The only bummer to this kit (besides not being a real swimmer) is that there are no eyes on the new head. The ones on the box are ’shopped. I cut off some extra bits from the purple sprue to make mine.
