Half Eye is a very famous Studio producing high-end transformable figure.
They're a small indipended Studio quite similar to a Garage Kit producer,
ora 'doujin model' toy maker.
While big makers such as Bandai focuses on the aesthetical appeal of their
toy/model, Half Eye focus on the idea of 'actual transformation'. This means
in the GX Soul of Chougokin version of GunBuster you have to swap parts
during the 'transformation' process, such as adding hands, etc. On the
contrary, the Half Eye toy is completely transformable in the true meaning
of this term. Every single bit of the machines is supposed to be moved
WITHOUT being disconnected from the model. This is why their toys usually
looks uber-complicated and not always pleasant as for aesthetics.
IIRC Half Eye was also famous for producing a 'fully transformable' Getter
Robot (something actually said to be impossible to create) and a really good
Escaflowne among the others.
