Today’s main feature…!
Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
Today I’m going to be taking a look at… No! No, not Dayo-san! I’m going to be taking a look at an item from threezero that went up for order today…
|From the popular multiplayer sci-fi shooter ‘Titanfall’ comes a model of one of the large robotic weapons known as ‘Titans’. The Strider is known as one of the more agile machines, and has now been shrunk down to 1/12th scale together with a pilot all in the IMC color scheme.
The Strider’s torso and leg armor plates, waist area, arms, fingers and more all move in various different ways boasting over 100 points of articulation. The cockpit hatch can also be opened and closed, and the included pilot of the same scale can even be seated inside. The inside of the cockpit, torso and back thrusters all feature light-up effects with interchangeable red and blue lights. The Strider also comes with a plasma railgun, and the ammo drum can even be detached from the weapon. The left shoulder features a missile launcher with a cover the can be opened. The included pilot is also gully articulated and is dressed in an outfit made from real fabric for a truly realistic appearance. Detailed armor parts are also included worn over the fabric, but can instead be detached is you desire. The pilot also carries a CAR101 weapon.
It’s… huge…!! (´□｀｡)！
Approximately 508mm in height huge!
And this is only 1/12th scale! Imagine seeing one of these STRYDER’s in full size!! You may remember in the past threezero also released the TITANFALL ATLAS – it was also really huge and great fun to look at and play with, and the STRYDER provides an all new, rather different charm that is just as enjoyable! I imagine displaying them together would also look amazing! (｡･ω･)ﾉﾞ
You can see the TITANFALL ATLAS here:
Let’s see how it looks from the back!
The thinner arms and legs allow the STRYDER to keep it’s manoeuvrability! The thigh area also has a very characteristic design! If we zoom in a little closer you can also see proof of all the battles the weapon has taken part in – it has a degradation appearance filled with scratches, dents and cracks! threezero do such amazing paintwork to make things appear damaged! (‘-‘*)(,_,*)(‘-‘*)(,_,*)
It’s also so big that it’s rather hard to tell the size from photos! _:(´ཀ`」 ∠):_
Anyway, let’s move on by taking a look at some of the included parts!
First up is this huge Plasma Railgun!
Just like the mech itself, the weapon has a heavy, mechanical and used appearance!
Plus the ammo drum can even be spun around like so…
Plus it can be detached too! ε=(｡・д・｡)
Speaking of articulation, the cockpit can also be opened and closed!
Once the top and bottom parts of the hatch are opened, you can even see the pilots chair inside! ♡
But that’s not all that opens up!
The cover on the left shoulder mounted missile launcher also opens up! ☆
Here is a photo with everything opened up!
W-Who is that standing at the STRYDER’s feet?!
A 1/12th scale pilot is also included!
As if the STRYDER itself wasn’t detailed enough, the amount of detail on the fully articulated pilot is absolutely amazing! His clothes are even made from real fabric for a truly realistic feel and appearance! ☆
It’s hard to call this an optional part! He really is a figure it his own right!
You really need to take a long look at the details with your own two eyes! Just look at each of the belts all along his legs – each sculpted differently with buckles in various places!
（´-`）.｡oO (I was going to use petite Mikudayo as a size comparison, but she looked so cute kind of hiding behind the pilot’s leg…!)
Anyway, let’s get back to the STRYDER itself! Just like the TITANFALL ATLAS, the model has over 100 points of articulation! Not only can it hold all the included weapons by moving each individual finger separately, the legs, hips and even shoulders can all be moved around for all sort of options!ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ
You can easily recreate your favorite scenes from the game, or instead come up with your very own original poses!
However! There is till even more to this figure!
△ This is how petite Mikudayo-san looks in the cockpit!
If we spin the model around to the back… you’ll notice a little button!!
It looks like a rather dangerous button to press, but I took the chance!
Even the inside of the thrusters on the back are glowing!!
Placing the lit-up figure in a darker area creates an amazing atmosphere! (｀・ω・´)ゞ
It’ll be a tough choice deciding where to display it!
Better in the light where you can see all the details… or rather in the dark where the light-up effects look incredible! Either way, it’s a a model filled with details, fun and amazing volume!
The TITANFALL STRYDER is currently up for preorder!★
Orders in Japan can be made at the GSC Online Shop!

While we’re on the topic of robots…
ThreeA’s MDL DEFENCE HAROLD – MEMBER ONE SHITTY 9 is currently up for preorder at the GOODSMILE ONLINE SHOP!
|In the battles of the World War Robot universe, self-controlled artificially intelligent robots made by the Rothchild Corporation are the primary weapons of war. Harold is one of the first generation robots, and while he may be one of the older models, his powerful artillery cannons and stable tank treads have proven time and time again they are highly reliable.
MDL Harold is the sole surviving robot member of the Noachis Defence League which saw the Earth Defence Force drop 100 Large Martins from the Iron Panda division on the city of Noachis. The battle for Noachis was a turning point for MARS, where all ongoing negotiations were cancelled and the ‘MARS ALONE’ edict was passed – MARS annexed itself from Earth completely to forge an independent future.
This of course was not seen favourably by the EDF! The war continues! The ‘Weekly Hobby JAPAN’ June edition will be going on sale from the 25th April 2015, and will feature the start of a new comic series ‘WWR THE SHITTY 9’. This figure is the first figure made in collaboration with the series – one of the members of THE SHITTY 9 Unit, MDL Harold! The figure is a pre-painted 1/12th scale fully-articulated model. The tank tracks are fully mobile, and his head can be pulled out from the body allowing for all sorts of different nuances in poses. He also comes with both manipulator arms with articulated fingers and cannon arms, allowing for even more variations for fans to enjoy!
This figure is exclusive to the GOODSMILE ONLINE SHOP, and is the first in a series of figures from the WWR THE SHITTY 9 manga currently being serialized in Monthly Hobby Japan Magazine!(・д・｡)
