It’s that time again friends! A few weeks back we took at the fantastic new Space Squad release of Gavan Type G. This figure was a long overdue renewal that helped set the stage for the original Metal Hero himself to also receive this treatment. In this case though S.H. Figuarts Space Sheriff Gavan came packaged in a massive set with his unique ride the Saibarian!
Gavan like Type G really needed this renewal treatment. The old Gavan body was a pretty poorly made figure with numerous documented QC issues. While these new releases haven’t been perfect on that front, I’m looking at you chrome finish, they are above and beyond functionally better figures than the old releases. Gavan comes armed with 3 versions of his iconic Laser Blade as well as 4 sets of hands and a Laser Scope head. But the biggest and best accessory is of course the Saibarian! This long overdue bike is a top notch figuarts vehicle. Functionality it can fully transform, it’s got several tamashii stage ports built in for action shots, and despite being plastic, it has some decent heft to it. It’s a shelf presence.
