The Space Battleship Yamato is pretty much a hit with the boys even today. We have seen several avatars of the same in Lego plastic and the likes. That said, it is indeed quite rare to spot this masterpiece with a brilliant coating of silver color. We recently spotted the 1/350 Battlehsip Yamato scale model that drew us in instantly.
It was Bandai who had this rad idea of performing a silver makeover for this popular battleship. This one is exclusive and will be available for only a very limited period in Japan. Dimensions read to the effect of 766 x 220 x 102 mm. This translates into a weight of 1,950 gms when the stand is also included.
A remote control keeps the ship at your beck and call. In other words, you can make the tor ‘shoot’ or even activate the rear engine. The figures aboard are heroes of Japanese anime. One can also spot a set of mini fighter jets too. The price tag reads $850 and Bandai is game for offerinf the shipping option by end of next month. Makes for a great Christmas option.
