The Chō Kōsoku Galvion “Garubion” sofubi at Mandarake’s Daiman Festival…

Mandarake have unveiled a number of new toys they’ll have up for grabs at their upcoming Daiman Festival this week, the highlight for us coming in the form of this incredible licensed Chō Kōsoku Galvion sofubi! Taken directly from the classic 80’s mecha anime, “Garubion” has been faithfully recreated in soft vinyl form, standing at a gargantuan 12.5″ tall and featuring extensive articulation that changes the figure from ‘bot to car within seconds. Produced in Garubion’s signature white, blue, grey and black for this first run, the figure will be going on sale at the festival this Friday, August 5th for 19,440yen. Here’s hoping we see a version outside of Japan soon!
