Tachikoma – Ghost in the Shell: S.A.C. 2nd GIG

One of the few models that have taken time to track down, Tachikoma is a special robot from Ghost in the Shell with an autonomous intelligence loyal to the team. The funny part is that they love a certain kind of oil, its like candy to them and they are like a bunch of kids in a room and when let out they have lots of fun. They are strong as tank and tactile with some weaponry to match. I always found them to be interesting characters, and I always like them and since I’m a fan of Batou from Ghost in the Shell they seem to view him as the favorite of the team.

This model is from Fewture, they make some very interesting models and this is one of them. A diecast large size Tachikoma which is very movable and has an excellent finish. The red lights are kind of cool as well, but I’m really happy that I managed to find this model while looking for some Mazinkizer models and I think it looks really cool. I’m running out of space to place these really cool models but I hope to find a solution, I have even kept some in the box in the back of the closet. I was hoping to find a good one of Major Kusanagi and Batou but that will take some searching to find.

  1. That thing looks cool, never saw the whole GITS series though. But the detail on that thing is amazing.
    Bl3afya :)

  2. I like collecting these, but I only buy metal or ceramic ones. I can’t get myself to like the feel of plastic :/

  3. N: Alah e3afeek! U Should watch the whole series! U r really missing out if you don’t!

    MBH: Then you will like this one, diecast means its metal and plastic joints, all the blue areas are metal and its damn heavy too!!! :D

  4. Hi, I tried using your contact form. It wasn’t going through. I was getting a code error. I haven’t found a good finished Batou for sale. The good ones have all been garage kits at the Japanese shows. The best Motoko statues to me are the SEGA prize 2nd gig ones (2 versions: solid color and clear) and the Vice/Alter/Beagle one. Both are still available on eBay. They are kind of old released maybe 2-3 years ago I think. Bye.
