Caught these at Fewture's booth at SuperFest and they look really well done. Non transforming, but totally poseable. 13cm tall, 6,980 yen a pop. And each includes a Nove, "just for Rog." I pray for a super-detailed Tulcas next.



Hmmn. The price isn't as bad as I feared. Too bad it doesn't transform but they captured the anime's styling right.

Weird proportions, with those tiny chests. Sharp styling, though.

A non-transforming Tulcas would be kind of bittersweet.

Nice but feels like these should have been Revoltechs.
I want to know the die-cast content of these... for around 80 bucks they could be fantastic figures, or really overpriced crap. The articulation does look great, and I do like the styling (even if it clearly isn't for everyone).

Given the actual animation quality of the series, I'd say the vinyl actually captures the style better...


:( I always wondered why there weren't vinyl power suits... they're so much more vinyl-shaped!

Sweet! They're like the re-incarnation of the non-transformable 1/72 Takatoku one, and the same size, too.

Might have to put one of these on my 2010 wish list.
They're out!

Humn.... Very interesting. 5 inches tall, hyper-anime-dynamic style.... $77-$80.

Neat! Wish I could afford one now .... :(

Thanks,

Away they look good but up close the sculpt (particularly on the head) is mushy and the paint for the visor is streaky. I give credit for them doing an obscure robot that almost anyone that knows it is due for its inclusion in the G1 Transformers toyline.

Yeah, that headsculpt is TURRIBLE. But the figure does seem very dynamic.

I first encountered it via the CONVERTORS, and the Testors-imported kits in Kay-Bee's hobby isle. Hasbro's repackage was too expensive for me back then.

Can't wait for the Transformers boards to start speculating if Hasbro will import it for $20, like they did for CM's gokin..! :-D

Discounted! Nobody cared for them I guess. The green one is tempting.
Non-variable expensive chogokin Calibur = Full of meh.
if you like the SRC line then this is a good toy for you, lots of pose-ability and not much else. i picked mine set up for about 50% off each. I guess at 35% off it is still a do, but if you have the CM's and you are not a completist or not a diecast fan then don't bother.
