“Panzer World Galient” is a robot anime TV produced by the Japanese animation studio SUNRISE in the 1980s, and Threezero recently launched a metal skeleton action figure of the mecha soldier Galient redesigned by Threezero’s Art Director Kelvin Sau. It can recreate the two forms: the initial Panzer Blade Galient, and the Panzer Blade Assault Galient after repairs and upgrades. And can also be transformed into Big Falcon and 2 different machines. The playability is very rich, let’s take a look!
The initial Panzer Blade Galient
This Galient figure belongs to Threezero’s ROBO-DOU series.
Overall it is a non-scale articulated figure, and its total height is approx. 9 inches, which is 24.5cm.
Compared with the original modeled appearance in the anime, it can be seen that while retaining the classic elements, Threezero mainly redesigns the mechanical details of the mecha and adds the weathering effect.
This time it also continues the fine tradition of Threezero, with a remarkable die-cast main frame embedded in the figure, so I believe that the overall play experience will be definitely very good.
You can see that the outer armor parts have obvious weathering paint.
In addition, it provides 42 points of articulation to display this Galient figure in a variety of poses to increase the playability.
This time the tires on both sides of the feet are also able to rotate, which can recreate Galient’s iconic offensive action “roller dash”.
The main weapon is a big sword, plus Galient’s Armor itself has the armor elements of samurai, the whole looks very much like a mecha knight.
In addition, this Galient figure is also equipped with a soft whip, the wire with small blade pieces attached can be bent freely, and it can take many poses for waving the soft whip.
At the same time, this figure recreates the iconic transform mechanism in the initial Panzer Blade Galient form, which can be transformed into Big Falcon.
The Panzer Blade Assault Galient after repairs and upgrades
In addition to the interchangeable hand parts, sword and soft whip, the accessories also provide other weapons and 2 interchangeable backpack covers.
A detachable rear cannon can be installed on Galient’s back, together with an assault cannon and a shield, it can be displayed in the form of Panzer Blade Assault Galient after repairs and upgrades.
Combining strong firepower and heavy armor, I have to admit that this Assault Galient form is more attractive!
The surface of Galient’s shield clearly shows a stronger weathering effect than the body, and even the paint surface is mottled a lot, and the color is slightly lighter.
The biggest highlight of this huge shield is that the upper part can be opened and transformed to create a gunport shape that integrates defense and offense. With the interchangeable left leg’s armor cover with holes, it can display a cool shooting posture!
Used together with Galient’s double-barreled assault cannon, the shooting style is very imposing.
As I said at the beginning, this figure can also be separated into 2 machines in this Assault Galient form. This is also a faithful recreation of the original settings in the anime TV.
The picture above shows that Galient’s torso can be completely transformed into the Panzer Falcon.
In addition, the hips and legs of Galient can make him transformed into Strike Vehicle.
In terms of the richness of weapon accessories and the changeable forms, I feel that this Panzer World Galient figure is the most playable work in the ROBO-DOU series so far!
And the heavy retro mecha appearance has a nostalgic feel, even for me who have never seen the original anime TV “Panzer World Galient”, just can’t help but want to buy this figure.
