Based on the popular mid-’70s anime, Casshan, Sentinel has announced the Tatsunoko Heroes Fighting Gear Friender, based on Casshan‘s robotic dog. Though this version of Friender doesn’t transformer or breath fire, he certainly looks great. He has been perfectly captured in great detail. It measures about 18cm–about 7 inches–in length. There are no included accessories, or effects parts, but does feature many articulation points for a variety of posing options. Tatsunoko Heroes Fighting Gear Friender is available for pre-order, along with a re-issue of the Tatsunoko Heroes Fighting Gear Casshan too! Friender is priced at 7,000 yen (about $68 USD) and Casshan (Re-Issue) at 7,800 yen (about $76 USD) with both scheduled for release in October.
