This would be great if they could make statues of the complete G-Force team. Hope they stick to the Original design.

I may have to get this. Huge fan of all the series. What are the chances they can improve the face sculpt and visor seams?

Yes, caught that they missed both. I can ask them on Collectors Group.

Itís funny, I understand the visor is a nightmare to sculpt and mold and have a perfect translucency so I can give them a pass on it.

But the bracelet is an integral part of the uniform and character. Forgetting it, or worse, leaving it out as a stylistic choice is inexcusable. :)

Prime1 updated their Facebook homepage with this photo. They said the bracelet was missing when displayed at the exhibit event. So relieved.

Now if they can just manufacture the visor to look this good in the production version.

Saw some new pics from the exhibit and they must have found his bracelet because in the new pics he was wearing it.

I have been waiting for a Battle of the Planets line. I know this is the Gatchaman license so we won't get a 7-Zark-7 but I can deal with that. Mark looks awesome.

Good eyes! Looks like the birdarang can be removed from the holster. Or thereís 2 swappable sculpted holsters.

Not sure I like the alternate portraits but that's a lot of display options.

So am I right in thinking the SS exclusive is just the switch out angry portrait?

If so I might just grab this locally when funds allow...it's freaking glorious

Yea....crazy...payment plan won't start until Nov. I have been waiting for this piece. My first in a long while....and it will still be a long while.

at least now Prime 1 seems to be more realistic with their estimated arrival Dates.Out of 9 Prime 1 Statues I PO only 1 was actually on time.

and the reality is all of them except Mr Freeze I could have waited until they shipped and still got the Exclusives.

This piece REALLY took me back to my childhood!! I can’t name the characters, I think they were color coded like Voltron, and I’m pretty sure there was a fat one or a little kid...anyway, I’m getting this just for the nostalgia feeling alone. I’m afraid it will ruin my fond memories if I try to watch old episodes on YouTube. I can’t wait forever on Prime 1 to finish Evil Dead Ash, so I guess I’ll use my $650 SS bucks on this!

Watch episodes of Gatchaman, not Battle of the Planets. Sandy Frank took 105 episodes of Gatchaman and made Battle of the Planets, which was a bastardized version of Gatchaman.

Fell in love with G-Force when I was a kid.
As a young adult I purchased the entire Gatchaman series on DVD and loved that even more!

This is a must have.
I just wish we knew if Prime 1 is committing to making the rest of the team.

Oh yeah, a 1/72 scale God Phoenix would kick ass too!

Thanks for the advice, Underworld. I’ll try to watch some Gatchaman this weekend. After my last post I watched some G Force on YouTube and it was dumb as hell. Thats not going to stop me from buying this statue though.

Battle of the Planets was 85 episodes, plus 7-Zark-7 PSA's.

Gatchaman was 105.

Was the Gatchaman movie just a couple of episodes from the series or was it an entirely separate story?

Just started appearing at UK sellers now...£984
WOW!!!

Might consider the SS route now as payments not due to start until November & I can't see shipping & UK Customs costing me an additional £300!!

Plus swap out portrait ;)

The movie was pieces of the series with some added scenes of Berg Katse's origin...I believe.

Exactly! Battle of the Planets had both 7-Zark-7 and Casey Kasem as one of the voices.....people don't be hatin on BOTP!
