This is an action toy, with some die-cast metal parts, of a science fiction/anime character or item.
Back in 2001, Bandai's Soul of Popynica Space Battleship Yamato came out to thrill fans and collectors alike. Beautifully proportioned and sporting gimmicks galore, it was the Yamato toy to have...until now! Nearly a decade of technological advances later, and with the upcoming "Space Battleship Yamato" live-action film firing up Yamato fever like never before, Bandai now presents an entirely new rendering of the iconic ship!
Measuring 425mm in length (nearly 17 inches!), this lovingly detailed Yamato is packed with great gimmicks. An infra-red remote control (four AAA batteries are required) cues four music tracks, six different digital sounds, and the full-color LED lights of the Wave Motion Gun, main engine and sub-nozzles, and main bridge. Panels and hatches open, revealing inner detail and accommodating the included eight small spacecraft (Cosmo Zero, two Black Tigers, Kato and Yamamoto's Cosmo Tiger IIs, a three-seat Cosmo Tiger II, an ambulance ship, and a Type 100 search craft). The main guns pivot in unison via a hidden dial, and the gun barrels can all be elevated individually. Small deck guns also pivot simultaneously with hidden dial. The main smokestack missiles can be raised and lowered, and the ship's wings pop out via a hidden switch release.
A sleek black base is provided to display the Yamato either horizontally or canted upward, and holds the infra-red remote control as well.
Made of ABS, PVC, and die-cast alloy, this epic all-new entry in the Soul of Chogokin line is fully painted, but requires minor assembly of small parts (no cement needed). Don't miss this chance to get aboard Bandai's latest, greatest Yamato!
