Grendizer was graciously provided by Angolz! Get yours there!

Secret weapon of the planet Fleed, Grendizer is the robot piloted by Duke Fleed. The Grendizer is sought for its great power and destructive capabilities by the Vegan Empire, and they will stop at nothing to get it. Duke flees to Earth to escape the Vegan Empire only to be found once again by King Vegan. Duke must now fight to protect the Grendizer and the Earth.

With this, Metal Box and Yamato give us Grendizer from the Toei Super Robot show entitled UFO Robot Grendizer . Made in SD proportions with some excellent engineering and copious amounts of . metal, Grendizer is sure to please the Grendizer and SD fan alike

Let's review:

Packaging:
The box is oblong and blue .. Simplistic and good picture and text placement make it a nice little box

Box Front

The back includes all the warnings and features that are included:

Box Back

Aesthetics:
Grendizer's colors are dark and a satisfying mix of shiny and matte with even a few translucent pieces Aside from being SD, Grendizer is. faithfully represented here in figure form All his sharp angles, blocky-yet-rounded design, and other such defining bits as his wrist blades are here

Gren Back

His 1970s super robot colors are all present in their gregarious glory, but they are not all accurate to the show. For instance, the purple on his legs and crotch; that's much too bright and saturated from the colors used in the television show And the visor and horns on his face are also incorrectly colored Not a deal breaker for most, but it is a point of contention

Gren purple

The paint is clean and suffers from only minor overspray and goopiness, namely around seams. Things are not super tight, but you'd have to get in close to see any discrepancies.

Grendizer also has a good amount of metal in his construction (a nice treat indeed). Located mostly in his center of mass, it gives the figure newfound weight and heft.

Articulation:
Being SD, I was not prepared for Grendizer to have this much articulation going on; there's a lot of interesting engineering going on in here, too. Along with the basics-double jointed head, ab crunch, universal shoulders and elbows, ball jointed wrists-Grendizer also sports a neck flap and neck extension joint for more extreme head movement and a sweet submerging hinge in his wrist blade to help move them out of the way (as his design does not allow for such). His arms are my favorite part as they are sick!

 arm pose joint

Sadly, the engineering basically stops at the waist down.
That extra deep ab crunch It can only move up and down and side to side; no left to right spin
And the legs Well they're kinda bland
You have ball jointed feet and knees that do not really do anything (his hips are universal jointed, though, so that helps) These legs are not significantly better than if they were static They are minutely expressive, but.. they hardly do what legs are supposed to do

With that said, he still looks good in almost any pose you can put him in

Accessories:
Grendizer comes with a large amount of accessories:
- Three extra pairs of hands
- Screw Crusher Punch rocket effect parts
- Screw Punch wrist blades
- Screw Punch elbows
- Double Harken
- Space Thunder effect part
- Stand

 accessories

< span style = "line-height: 1.6; background-color: transparent;"> All of the accessories look as good as the main figure and are very easy to switch out with one another I was surprised and pleased with this

Rocket Punch

The Space Thunder effect part was finicky to get to stay on at first, but after a few tries it stuck on like a champ

The stand, however, has some loose joints in it that can not be tightened Its primary. use is to pose Grendizer flying forward (which it does well), but floating poses are harder to get to work; you need to put the stand arm in a Z shape for it to stand up

<. p> stand 1

The sheathed Harken blades on Grendizer's neck can be removed to be accurate to the show; a nice . little touch

neck stuff

Gimmicks:
Grendizer comes with a pretty cool gimmick (as most Super Robots should): light up eyes

 eyes light

The effect is striking as it is excellently bright; however, the plastic for the eyes is-I feel-too translucent It looks less like Super Robot eyes lighting up and. .. more like carnival lights If the plastic used were more milky then the illusion would be better captured

Closing Remarks:
Grendizer is a neat, little, SD robo guy
With solid construction, luscious metal, beautiful engineering, and a wide range of accessories, he is very playable. and very expressive. With only a few missteps to take into consideration-off colors, simple legs, not the tightest paint-Grendizer is a charming SD representation of a renowned robot. Whether you like SD or Grendizer (or both) this toy might be for you
