Need to wash the taste of the Netflix Cowboy Bebop remake out of your mouth? Well, scrounge up $404.99 and get ready to pre-order this replica of Spike Spiegel’s Swordfish II!
Big Bad Toy Store is currently taking pre-orders for the model kits. Good Smile Company will be producing a 1/48 scale replica of Spike’s lovely ship, but it won’t arrive until January 2023. I do not have any familiarity with GSC’s model kits. For the price, I’m hoping this thing exceeds the standards we see with companies like Bandai.
This 1/48 scale model features Spike Spiegel’s Swordfish II ship from the anime series Cowboy Bebop. Under the supervision of mechanical designer Kimitoshi Yamane, the unique design of the Swordfish II has been faithfully captured and features fully articulated parts, light-up elements, and highly detailed paint application.
Here are the details on the kid:
- Length: 14.17 inches (36cm)
- Width: 11.80 inches (30cm)
- Made of ABS and zinc alloy
- Articulated folding wings
- Landing gear can be displayed either retracted or deployed
- Swiveling ailerons
- Telescoping and swiveling plasma cannon
- Articulated air brake
- Removable cockpit unit
- Canopy can be opened and closed
- LED light effects
- Requires 3 LR44 (not included)
What do you think of the Swordfish II model? Worth the price or for $400? Should the thing come pre-assembled? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
