We’ll examine the pros and cons of each Gundam mini collection and at the end we’ll have a number of comparison shots showing the different ranges side by side.

[MS] – Getter Robo Miniatures

Continuing with the last few posts this one will feature figures from the Getter Robo Mecha series. Getter Robo is a classic series from the 70s with both a manga and several TV shows and OVA adaptations. The Manga which the units profiles from MechaStellar are based on is written by Ken Ishikawa and starts off with the Getter Team fighting off Mechasauruses from the Dinosaur Empire.
