About Aphrodite A
Aphrodite A is a giant mech originally built as a symbol for peace by Dr. Yumi from the remains of Aphrodite for geological research. Although this mech originally lacked weapons, it was later upgraded for combat with the Koushiryoku Missiles for offensive battle so that his daughter, Sayaka Yumi could pilot Aphrodite A alongside Koji Kabuto in Mazinger Z. This collectible is 15″ tall with a metallic paint application that highlights the attention to detail and Threezero’s signature weathering effects. The figure is fully-articulated, including the fingers, and features light-up LEDS eyes, cockpit and afterburners on her backpack. In correspondence to the upgrades she receives in the story, Aphrodite A also includes Koushiryoku Missiles that actually eject from her chest.
