Engine Gattai Series 05 — Engine Gunpherd (2008)

Gunpherd is a mostly fixed piece, but he does everything he needs to, so it’s very difficult to penalize him. Because of the ratcheted plug connection system, he can be rotated forward for a level firing position if you don’t feel like making him imitate Ryuutaros. It definitely feels like there’s fewer unique voice clips on his included Engine Soul than any of the others’, but he is the quiet, stoic type so that sort of fits perfectly.

Comparisons between the various versions are below the cut.

Having owned the Bandai Asia release, I can confirm it is identical to the BoJ original. The American version accomplishes much the same in a slightly less polished way while completely foregoing voice-clip functionality. Ebay will wreck your wallet. Enlist the help of a middleman service to scour Yahoo Japan Auctions or try your hand at Mandarake.
