Mist the Graffiti writer has been dabling in the toy business for a while and I have loved his previous designs. These new ones were no exception. According to VinylPulse:
"Both the Dark and the Original Goldorus vinyl figures designed by Mist have cleared customs and will drop in a few hours @ the Bonustoyz web store. Both the Dark (349 pieces) and the Original (149 pieces) will sell for 119 euros (~ $170) + shipping.
This is one of the premiere releases of the year -- combining Mist's devilish style with a well-done homage to the old-school Japanese Grandizer. Goldorus is mean and lean with an 'exploding' fist (spring loaded) like the old Japanese robot toys plus weapon that converts from two axes to a dual-tipped instrument of death."
This was the original Orus toy by Mist. The flowing graffiti-esque shaped arms made this one of my favourite toy designs a couple years back.
