In one of the most ambitious Chogokin projects to date, Tamashii Nations presents the Argo (Yamato) as it appears in the StarBlazers 2199 (Space Battleship Yamato 2199) anime as a high-end chogokin diecast model with full light (multiple LEDS with different colors for Wave Motion Engine and Gun sequence portrayal) and sound functions- features five tunes from the anime as well as five different cannon noises.  Measuring over 16" long, this is the largest version of the ship ever produced as a Chogokin, and features a combination of diecast and plastic parts to accurately portray the most minute details of the famed star cruiser. Light and sound gimmicks are controlled via remote control to enhance the experience and make you feel a part of the space battleship crew. Rendered with faithful proportions and exquisite detail, even hull internal mechanics can be viewed. Accessories such as interchangeable Rocket Anchor x2 and wings, Cosmo Zero x2 and Cosmo Falcon x4 fighters, and special display stand are included in this deluxe set.  *Batteries sold separately- requires 4 AAA batteries (two for model, two for remote control).  The North American release will include the original Japanese box design, but under the Starblazers moniker.

  1. This is a beauty. Not diggin' the light clear stand arms though but I guess they needed more to set it apart from its two predecessors. I have both the Popynica and Chokogin and they have all black stands that don't stick out like these do. Still, I'm considering this one because its created from 3D data taken directly from the series, and that series is so, so good.
