As the revitalization of the Showa Era continues from Tamashii Nations, we have one more enemy grunt to add to our collections. Appropriately, following on from the upcoming Renewal of the Shocker Combatman in February is the successor to those very troops. S.H. Figuarts Gel Shocker Combatman!
Gel Shocker was the first organization to succeed the original Shocker in it’s quest for world dominance. Formed by Shocker’s Great Leader, and Geldamn’s General Black, this group culled the ranks of the original Shocker even down to it’s reliable Combatman men. This purge resulted in the introduction of the new Gel Shocker Combatmen who wold menace the Double Riders for some time to come. This new figure is the first instance of Gel Shocker in the figuarts toyline and it looks to be a pretty spectacular release. The Gel Shocker Combatman utilizes the new body enginered for the Renewal Shovcker Combatman and includes both the spiked staff & sword these soldiers were known to use.
The Gel Schocker Combatman will be release in June 2018 as a Tamashii Web Exlcusive for 5400 yen. Be sure to get in touch with your preferred middleman or service in order to secure an order in the near future. Credit to Tendou Toys for sharing this image with us.
