Bandai Phone Braver 7 is a Phone With Attitude (and Limbs)

by Paul Strauss

I’m not sure if you can actually make phone calls with the Bandai Phone Braver 7, but I don’t mind. I mean really, it’s a cell phone with bendable arms and legs, so what’s not to like?


The Phone Braver 7 (model GE-46) is an anthropomorphic mobile phone from Bandai’s Soul of Chogokin series. How I missed Phone Bravers number 1 through 6 is anyone’s guess. Maybe this chart will help you figure out what’s going on.


Actually, Phone Braver 7 is based on a “character” in a popular Japanese TV drama, K-Tai Sosakan 7, a drama about “a high school boy, his transforming cell-phone robot, and his six detective partners that fight against an internet-based criminal organization.” I’m surprised NBC hasn’t optioned it for the U.S. yet.


From what I can tell, this particular model features interchangeable light up faceplates, and makes sounds, but there are other versions floating around that actually have an LCD screen and play games too.


Priced at $135 (USD) over at XL-SHOP.com, Phone Braver 7 isn’t cheap, but it is awesome.

I hope this is what the iPhone 4 looks like.

    A minor correction but the Chogokin Phone Braver 7 is marketed under Bandai’s standard Chogokin line rather than the SoC line. What’s the difference?, I have no idea. The toy is very nice though. There are standard DX toy versions of the Phone Braver line however their appearance is not nearly as show-accurate as the Chogokin and because they rely on LCD to display the face, they don’t make good display pieces since their LCDs are usually off for power conservation purposes hence you can’t see their face unless you actually toy with it. The Chogokin does not have that limitation.
