PLEASE DO NOT MAKE MECHA REQUESTS!!! I will make videos of what I feel like!
DX Chogokin Gingaioh! DX 超合金 ギンガイオー
It was long overdue...
This is the glorious return to Chogokin mecha after a seven year absence. It sure did come back in a big, bad way! DX Chogokin Gingaioh is by far the heaviest mecha out there. You might think those giant 12 piece cluster mecha are heavy, and you're right. Gingaioh is just five pieces of solid Chogokin goodness.
Gingaioh itself relies on a concept that was far from being unique at this point: animals. It is made up of five Seiju [星獣]...
All five combine when the command "Seiju Gattai!" [星獣合体] is given. Gingaioh doesn't come with much in the way of accessories. Included is the Gingaiken [銀鎧剣] and Gingalcon can transform into the Galcon Bowgun [ガルコンボーガン].
I have to say, this is pure Chogokin goodness. Looking beyond the metal, the design is a bit lacking. Gingaioh is guilty of being...ummm...substance over style[?] I think. The design really lacks a degree of detail that I think Bandai was trying to justify with a ton of metal and a VERY nice paintjob. Take all the good stuff away and we're left with a Volvo-esque mecha, just a blocky toy. This isn't entirely Bandai's fault, Gingaioh was kind of blocky in the series as well. Aside from this...great toy.
Bandai America released Gingaioh in the Power Rangers Lost Galaxy Megazord line as Galaxy Megazord. Galaxy Megazord was basically the same as Gingaioh. It did, however, lack much of the metal parts that Gingaioh has making it substantially lighter in weight. Also, the sword included was made of a flimsier plastic and the paint isn't nearly as detailed. It is a nice alternative to the Gingaioh, but Gingaioh is VERY cheap itself if you know where to look. It's entirely personal preference.
Also released was a gold plated version of Galaxy Megazord through upscale toy store FAO Schwarz. This version is VERY rare.
