Kazushi Kobayashi Retro Robot

Kazushi Kobayashi has just designed a new DIY resin kit that just oozes class, from the actual design, down to the amazing paintjob on this figure. Apparently, this particular set is known as Chubu 01 and blends 1950's aesthetics with a modern robotic touch. The premise is that these robots would be used to help with transport and logistics of heavy goods. With a price tag of $300 USd, it ain't cheap, but at least you can gawp at these lovely pics instead!
