Just in time for the eagerly awaited live-action "Space Battleship Yamato" movie debuting in Japan this December, Bandai serves up this fantastic all-new tooling of the iconic ship! Based on painstaking research on the ship's design for the original 1974 animated TV series, this 1/500 kit will measure 53cm (that's 20.86 inches) upon completion! The main guns will have impressive swiveling action, thanks to a built-in gear gimmick. Clear parts will be included for use in the first and second bridges, Wave-Motion Engine, and Wave-Motion Gun. A display stand is also included, along with six small craft: two apiece of the Cosmo Zero, Black Tiger, and Cosmo Tiger II. A snap-together kit that can be assembled without glue. Molded pretty much in color, but to really do it justice it will need some paint!
