I absolutely love the MechatroWeGo and truthfully, anything made by Sentinel. The quality of their products is absolutely breathtaking, and the engineering is Grade A perfection each and every time. I personally have one of the MechatroWeGo toys– there were model kits of it at DesignerCon 2019, which I purchased directly from the 1000toys booth.
I chose light blue and I’ve been in love ever since. This new 80s color scheme is super fun and charming. The MechaWeGo toys sell out quickly, but if you scope HobbyLink Japan or BigBadToyStore, there are a few specific varieties left in stock.
