Armor Plus stuff

I never understood why they had little handles on their ankles. And then in one scene in the show one guy is caught by those handles so he wouldn't smash through a wall.

I've still got my old US-Playmates/Bandai figure of this guy from the 90s. Damn cool design.

I know someone is going to complain that if Ryo doesn't sell well they won't make the others but I only really want Rowen, Sekhmet and Anubis. Hopefully they get that far. Way better than the older figures obviously which I still have a few of somewhere.
Y'know, I never did get the Takara versions....are they much different than those released in the US?

Was fiddling with Ryo yesterday; he's a pretty nice figure, but I can't see him as something I'll EVER "transform" with any frequency, as it's a process that's almost guaranteed to shred certain parts of the armor as you put them on and off (particularly the way the shoulder pads and side skirts are mounted on - the left side skirt pegs on mine are a chrome flaked mess after only one transformation, mercifully hidden under the skirts themselves). The diecast gives him some nice heft, though, and the metallic finish looks fantastic.

The only other figure I really would want would be Anubis, but I'm not going to hold my breath that he (or even any of the other warriors until I get some concrete confirmation) will ever get made...

I'd want to see Shin, because of the Trident claw, and Rajura, because pink, spiky bug armors rock.

Your cruelty is boundless.
What's the one that had a spider motif? I had that one and both version of Ryo.

Rajura...that's the one I was talking about. Pretty cool, huh?

nah, gimme the dude that could grow six arms. He was bad ass.

I could actually see Southern Cross in this series, but you know they'd do like, one figure and it'd be a Tamashii Web exclusive. Hmm... a Zor soldier with armor would be really cool.
if the line is successful i see borgman as a potential release, especially if takara's license has expired.....

or maybe a kinnikuman armor version. although unlikely, it would be a cool addition to the other kinnikuman nisei figures that bandai di da couple of years back....

maybe a zillion figure too, once again highly unlikely...

a puraresu sanshiro armor plus would also be kinda cool....
>if the line is successful i see borgman as a potential release, especially if >takara's license has expired.....

Most definitely this.

Oh and it was Sega, not Takara that made those Borgman figures.

Other potential, Metaljack.
I want a Segata Sanshiro armour plus fig with metal dogi and throwy action.

YEAH.

Hey, you know what else is technically a human in armor...? ...Diapolon.

Kinda surprised that there hasn't been a new Diapolon toy at all. I mean they've made new toys for Mekenda Robo, Machine Blaster and Gingaizer for crying out loud.

I would love to see a Jan Kuugo in this line. It'll never happen, of course.

Hillsy make Sanjeev sad.
I am stunned, STUNNED that Evil is up (conceptually and prototype-wise) already. I would have thought one of the other Samurai Troopers chara would get the nod. I mean, there's that whole 'warring states period mania' going on and stuff.

Now we need someone to crank out in-scale sofubi Radam warrior bugs.
No. We need the upgraded Evil with the wings and tail next. Then Dagger.
Ok now I definitely have get TM Blade so I can have Evil as well.

Anyone seen a review of the Tekkaman yet? It appears to even be in stock at BBTS, but I've not seen anything online yet.

More serious than thou

I recieved mine about a week ago and I recommend it highly!! Very sharp rendering and paint. Bring on more!!
Here is my ArmorPlus with the old Bandai kit for comparison. Overall I like it but it is a bit floppy with the metal armor on. It is no better than the old kit in terms of poseability, sadly.




Has anyone got the Macross frontier armour plus flight suit thingy? Recomended?

Yes, and yes. A little fiddly at times, but overall a very nice package. Exceptionally cheap from Amiami right now, as well, along with 50% off shipping.
Nice, that's what I like to hear, cheers Hellequin. :D
TB there is bigger than I thought. What's metal?

Wow no kidding, 45% off! But what's up with their being no shipping estimates, do you have to place and order and then wait for them to tell you how much it'll be?
Yes. Alternatively, you can e-mail them and ask them for a shipping quote and they'll give you one.

amiami only does EMS, doesn't it? That's kind of pricey if so.
They do SAL, though they add 700 yen to the base SAL price, so frankly it isn't worth it. For EMS shipping for the Alto figure, expect to pay about 2500 yen with the 50% off, though, which isn't bad at all.

I got it with sal for about 900 yen, which isn't too shabby at all. I can wait a week or so.

I notice they have pretty good deals in Amiami but how do you guys order with them? I mean, their site is entirely in Japanese! Even if I run a website translator, I can't even figure out how to register myself (since you'll need to be registered to make a purchase), let alone communicate with the site operators! Is there any simple way to place an order with them.. in English? Thanks!
They opened an English version of the site recently
