Go Hero presents MECHABOT™ - A Hero Reforged
Enter the world of Mechabot™...where great Japanese Monster & Sci-Fi themes come together in a new universe. Mechabot™ is old school cool with modern action and rocking music. If you enjoy the live action excitement of Johnny Sokko and his Flying Robot, Ultraman, Godzilla, and Gamera, you will love Mechabot™.
Throughout history there have always been giant monsters that wreaked havoc on civilizations. Some of these behemoths, named Stargoyles™, could devour entire planets. In these times of peril, great men of men rose to battle - Odysseus fought Scylla & Carbides, St. George slew the dragon, and Captain Nemo hunted the Kraken. These heroes, called the Macosmo, did not fight alone…they were armed by master craftsmen, artisans known as the Shokunin.
The current Shokunin, Elijah Yoroiichigu, shows his young apprentice, Zing Takemitsu, the culmination of his life's work. It is Mechabot™, the most advanced armor and weaponry ever conceived. To prevent the armor from falling into the wrong hands, Zing is forced to bond with it, forever changing his life.
Now Zing must master the Mechabot™ powers, fight the evil Stargoyles™, and protect the Universe, the Earth, & a Girl!

COLLECTIONDX ANNOUNCES THE RELEASE OF THE NOR’EASTER VEGETIUS KAIJU VINYL TOY

DRACUT, MASSACHUSETTS, November 5, 2008 — Following the sold-out "Gore Version Sky Deviler" CollectionDX is proud to announce our latest exclusive toy - the Nor'easter ver. Vegetius!
Vegetius stands 12 inches tall and is made out of translucent blue glitter soft vinyl. Made in Japan by the master craftsmen at Marmit, Vegetius has 5 points of articulation and is limited to 50 pieces.
Vegetius is one of the many giant monsters that take part in the Boston-based Kaiju Big Battel, a series of live action-monster wrestling events. He is the most beast-like creature of the Battel and no man or monster can control him around food.
This color scheme is meant to evoke the harsh, cold winter of the New England region, home to both CollectionDX and Kaiju Big Battel. The blue vinyl is translucent with metallic flakes; a color mixed exclusively for CollectionDX. This color has never been done by Marmit before.
Nor'easter ver. Vegetius is available NOW in the CollectionDX shop for $65
The figure comes bagged with a header card featuring art by CollectionDX’s own JoshB.
