New Photos and Info For DX Chogokin Mazinger Z

DX-Chogokin-Mazinger-Z-001

Bluefin Tamashii Nation has provided Toyark with new images and info for their upcoming DX Chogokin Mazinger Z. The figure stands at 30CM tall (about 12″). It is due out in between December and January 2013 at an MSRP of $439.99.

Forty years after the birth of Mazinger Z, fifteen years after the debut of the Soul of Chogokin, the DX Model represents the cutting edge of history. This large scale product towers nearly two times the size of previous Soul of Chogokin and Super Robot Chogokin toys, standing at roughly 300mm, and incorporating revolutionary new features for the Soul of Chogokin series including detailed mechanical inner workings, first time ever light-sound gimmick, and a full hangar facility for total storage.

The inner mechanics of Mazinger Z are replicated in fine detail. The front armor plates can be removed to expose everything from the inner workings of Mazinger Z’s face down to its fists and toes. Separate split armor plates are also included, letting you display it as a cutaway style model.

The chest includes both LED units and voice units. The voice unit plays instrumental versions of the “Mazinger Z” theme, “Our Mazinger Z” ending theme, and the “Z’s Theme” song. It also includes a sample of Koji Kabuto’s voice (provided by Hiroya Ishimaru) and sound effect samples for the docking sequence, the Photon Beams, the Rocket Punch, the Drill Missiles, the Breast Fire, and the Rust Hurricane. LED units are incorporated into the head and chest, letting the eyes and the chest illuminate, simulating Photon Beams and Breast Fire attacks. The lights and sounds are controlled with a wireless remote.

The Chogokin DX Mazinger Z comes as a set with a large-scale hangar-base that can house Mazinger Z inside. It isn’t just for storage. It acts as a display for the extra armor parts. The footlights feature working LEDs, replicating the dramatic appearance of Mazinger Z in its hangar.
