“The follow up to the beloved 1/35 scale 35 Mechatoro WeGo that started a new customizing culture in Asia the 1/12 scale version will feature everything that was great with the smaller version and add much much more!!
Now counting over 20 variations and rising for the 1/35 scale version we believe the next evolution for WeGo is to scale it up and make even better then it was before.”
