Figure. Imported from Japan! Mech handlers in big-robot-animation-series’ generally fit into two basic molds. The first mold is that of an ace pilot with innate skills who takes to maneuvering a robot like a duck takes to water. The second mold follows a more humble path where the hero has potential but must work hard to get to the lofty levels of the aforementioned prodigies. In the Gun Buster anime series, Noriko Takaya fits squarely in the second mold. Unsure of herself at the outset of the animation, Noriko eventually grits her teeth, finds her impressive abilities within, and pushes them forward to help the cause. To celebrate all that is Noriko, Kaiyodo presents the eighteenth "Monsieur Bomé Collection" release, dedicated to the Gun Buster pilot! Figure stands approximately 8" tall and features a display base. Blister card packaging.
