The current Sega Dreamcast hit, Virtual On is just the latest Japanese import in the Giant Robot Revolution! The game is set in a sci-fi future where giant virtuoids are set against each other in explosive combat. And if you thought those robots looked good at 60-frames-per-second, the robot action figure imports are sure to impress even the most discriminating game-player.
The articulation-heavy figures were manufactured by Kaiyodo's Xebec Toys division, based on the work of Mobile Suit Gundam-designer, Katoki Hajime. The Virtoid Temjin comes complete with seven different snap-on hands, a gun, a sword, Twin back-jets, and a custom display base ideal for posing the figure in dynamic flying positions.
Created by Sega of Japan, the game almost didn't make it to American shores due to the bizarre Twin Sticks Peripheral required to play. But thanks to Activision, Mech-hungry Americans are now flocking to the game in droves! The game was tweaked by Activision to make using the traditional Dreamcast controller easier - and aside from a high learning curve - it plays like a charm.
If you hurry, you might find these figures online at www.tokyopop.com. Good luck!
Hey look! It's a Dreamcast on the back of the robot - and it opens up to reveal a game CD inside!
