The following review was originally prepared by Gold on 12/18/09 on the Robot-Japan Forum:

 

Hi all, here's the quick review of the Gx-51 Getter Dragon - Shin Getter Robo- The Last Day Version.

The Good
-Lots of diecast(almost everthing except for the forearms and head)

-HEAVY!! I haven't been this impressed by the proportional weight of an SOC for quite a while. The toy when fully assembled weighs 500 Grams (1 pound!) It's 100Grams heavier than the Gx-18 Getter Dragon.

-Ratchet joints in the shoulders and knees.

-Optional extension for the shoulder pads to give a wider range of articulation for poses.
[image]





The Bad
-Box easily gets crushed (always hold it from the left side!!!!)

-no Getter Machine.

-No longer has the ability to disconnect (Unlike the GX18-20) so you can't make your own ba$t*rdized Getters.

-Getting the Tomahawk into the fists can be a chore, the hole is too tight so end needs to be forced into the fist (possible paint scraping?)
[image]





The Ugly
No real problems with the toy but the folded arms accessory did kind of feel under-detailed, the sculpt edges for the hands should have been mode defined IMHO. As is, the lack of detail makes it look like the hands have been "welded" into the arms.

[image]



Overall, despite the shrunken size (still not that bad, at least it hasn't shrunk to 3.75 Inches scale yet), a great toy, luckily they made it taller than Shin Mazinger so that's a step in the right direction. Plus the impressive weight is a great bonus. I think I would probably pick this over the Gx-18. I always felt that the Gx-18 Getter Dragon was too skinny. :)
