Popy New Tetsujin 28


Popy released a jumbo machinder Tetsujin 28 in 1981 - this was the "new" design that took 28 away from the pot-bellied version into a newer, slimmer robot from the anime series New Tetsujin 28-Go. This Popy version is unusual for two reasons: first, it does not come with wheels on the feet (not sure why they left them off) and second, the figure came with accessory fists, including a firing fist that could be fitted on either elbow (both fists have plungers) or a missile firing first. Of course my loose example lacks both of those - also mine has reproduction stickers and thrusters (the rockets on the back can be slid off-and-on for additional play factor). There are two-missile banks on each calf.



In general the figure is a bit plain molded all in dark blue (much like Giant Gorg). I do like the classic T28 mohawk.
