Ani-Merch': SHFiguarts Itashar Robo!

Just about every Super Sentai/Power Ranger team has had the same few things: brightly coloured uniforms, flashy transformation sequences, and of course, a cool giant robot to pilot!

For the Unofficial Sentai Akibaranger, this is no exception... even if their robot is far from one would expect of a "classic" fighting robot. Stubby, chubby and adorned with images of Z-Cune Aoi, the moe-as-heck main girl from the popular fictional anime within the series itself, it's none another than the Itashar Robo!

Sure, this robot-reject might not quite be the slickest, strongest, or even the bravest of mecha, but that doesn't mean this figure isn't at least uber cool! Scaled accurately to the already-released SHFiguarts Akibarangers, the Itashar Robo features high-end materials such as rubber tires, full-on decals, and a touch of die cast metal - a Chogokin staple!

The Itashar Robo also has an accurate transformation gimmick from Itashar-mode to Robot, and can even be driven/piloted by the Akibarangers in both modes.

To top off this ostentatious otaku offering, the Itashar Robo also comes with all its 'signature' weapons like the Tsundere-Swords and the Kanbanban signboard Rifle (yes, they are as ridiculous as they look)!

Releasing sometime in November, the SHFiguarts Itashar Robo is the perfect way to round out the collection of any Akibaranger fan out there!

Remember - PAIN IS POWER!
