 Watch out for the mecha with the drill.

Tamashi Web has released photos of a new product they're dropping in July - - a GURREN LAGANN figure that pushes the needle on the BAD-ASS meter to 11. Seriously, this is what Rodimus Prime would look like if he were tricked-out and covered with decals relevant for the 2010’s. I really don’t know how US dollars translate to Japanese Yen, but this is ringing up for 5,040 of the latter and I presume that’s a pretty penny.   Would it be enough to pimp a ’85 Thunderbird into a machine that'd turn heads on whatever corner it spun around? Or could it only get you a new cup holder? Somebody needs to put this in perspective for me.

I can’t help thinking of Bishamon from Capcom’s DARKSTALKERS series of fighting games.  He was a disembodied samurai spirit who similarly had a red chest plate that was shaped like a demon mask with burning white eyes. Is there some cultural idiom in Japan that involves that (stemming from folklore, perhaps?) or is it just a coincidence? Educate me here, oh demoniac-disembodied Anime Vice community, and then enjoy the pictures of this figure below.

Gurren Lagan is never discreet. It is always epic.

Can we petition the powers that be to change that to Gurren Lagann's mission statement?
