Yamato USA Announces North American Release of Megazone 23 – 1/15 Scale Garland Full Action Figure



Torrance, CA, June 23, 2006 – Japan's Yamato Co., world-renowned for its fully transformable Macross and Armored Trooper Votoms action figures, seals its reputation as masters of toy engineering with its all new Megazone 23 – 1/15 Scale Garland Full Action Figure. And Yamato USA is exceptionally proud to announce the North American release!



Loosley inspired by the Macross anime series (and even serving as source material for the unreleased Robotech: The Movie), Megazone 23 tells the story of young motorcycle enthusiast Shogo Yahagi who mistakenly comes into possession of a government prototype bike/mecha. Ruthlessly pursued by a group of goverment agents, Shogo plans to save himself by exposing the bike for what it truly is on a live television show hosted by popular singer, Eve. But even the lovely Eve has secrets of her own; and Shogo quickly finds out that the government has much more to hide than just a transforming military motorcycle. As Shogo begins to unravel the mystery of the bike, he discovers a secret which is the very reality that surrounds him…



Now for the first time ever, Yamato brings the Garland roaring to life as only Yamato can with its fully transformable Megazone 23 - 1/15 Scale Garland Full Action Model. Drawing upon original mecha designs by Shinji Aramaki (Wolf's Rain, Bubblegum Crisis), Yamato's 1/15 Garland stretches over 9.85" long in Maneuver Craft mode and fully transforms from Maneuver Craft to Maneuver Slave mode without any additional parts. Even more, as a testament to Yamato's engineering genius, the included 4.75” Shogo Yahagi action figure can remain seated in the figure as it fully transforms! As always, Yamato's transforming masterpiece includes a host of special features including rotating rubber tires, magnets in shoulders and legs, pulse canon, and too many points of articulation to count.



Yamato USA is proud to offer this exciting new collectible in North America, and even more excited to do so below the Japanese MSRP! Only $129.95!
