    Hi :) 

    Until some months ago I didn't know the difference between Amdrivers and Webdivers, that is until I did some searching when I was interested in fellow board member Getter Eagle's sale thread.
    Those toys looked cool in pics and they were awesome in hand.

    Amdriver is a toyline (there's anime as well but I have no knowledge of it) released in 2004 ~ 2005 by Konami.

    There are Amdriver human figures, I think there are 2 lines; the original Amdriver (Amjacket) figures and Neo Amdriver figures. They differ in proportions, but still based on the same characters.
    There are also some figure + weapon/armour sets, such as DX or ZEAM sets.

    All Amdriver figures wear helmets (?) and look somewhat inhuman. There is one female character (Sera) but even she looks the same, her built is just the same as the guys.
    (Konami later released EX sets with human heads.)

    With a SW Saga figure and a Microman;

    Not knowing anything about the anime, I actually prefer the impersonal look on Amdriver figures.

    There are also Bisars. These are the mechas which can be used as vehicles or be worn as armours (called "Brigandine" mode). The transformation is quite simple as most of them simple involve taking parts off and turning them around to attach on Amdrivers.

    I recently purchased TRU exclusive Neocross Bisar set, which also includes 2 Neo Amdriver figures and 2 weapon sets. I have wanted it for a while and finally found one with an OK price.

    The set was huge!

    Anyway, pictures. There are so many so I am posting low res pictures with links to larger pictures except for some.

    (I understand I could get small thumbnails at imageshack, but I never learned how to use that site and my account is still floating somewhere almost untouched. Apologies to anyone who wasted their time loading pics because my "thumbnails" can be still fairly large.)

    Neo Amdriver Jenus and Ragna; Very articulated, tons of accessories.

    I think those cables/tubes are supposed to connect backpacks and weapons actually.

    Neocross Bisar;
    This Bisar is made of 2 mechas. Fefnir has its own Brigandine mode, though due to its huge arms and tiny legs it has no posability. Only way it can stand is by using one of the arms for support.

    The other mecha, Fenrir.

    They combine to create Neocross Bisar. This mode is stable. Very stable. It looks really impressive in person and fun to pose around.

    There are leftover parts from Fenrir, which turn into a cannon;

    Adding to the fun, the leftover bits can be attached to the back, the stand is stored inside Fenrir and for some reason I was very surprised at this fact;

    Here are other 2 Bisars I have. Both Brigandine mode armours cover up Amdriver's shoulder joints and as the result arm movement is very limited. That's my only complaint really, they are beautiful.

    If you have pics of your Amdriver toys, please post here!
    I don't think I have any authority as a thread starter, but I'd appreciate it if you kindly refrain from quoting pictures. Just want to make a thread tidier if possible :)  Thank you for looking!!

    Syd! Just when I was wondering were you were and now you post! And such "tempting" pictures! This series was on sale at one of the major retailers in my country as recent as 1-2 months ago. Being a big fan of mecha...I was extremely tempted to pick them up.

    Dammit syd... now i really need to buy some. Anyone know a place to buy them? Especially that giftset. BBTS only has 2 core figures, and ebay is all store entries.

    The Amdrivers remind me of Lelouch from Code Geass

    Those look cool, always liked the mechas that could be taken apart and put back as vehicles

    You missed one detail. There were a couple of "sets" available in the AmDriver line with figures that had regular human heads exchangeable for the normal helmeted heads. Outside of that, yeah.

    They're awesome. Some day I should get some pics of mine.

    They are hard to find, I am so sorry that I was late to the game, too. Getter Eagle might have something left, if he hasn't taken his stuff to ebay.

    I saw the giftset on ebay for $99.99 only a month or so ago. I got mine a bit cheaper from a dealer in Japan but the shipping was no joke. I am trying to sell off some toys to pay it off (long story) :lol 
    Then a guy who posts in my small BBS told me he'd bought the same set for 1000yen (9 bucks) on clearance back then and I nearly fainted. Such is a life in Japan *sigh*

    Which ones did you have? Shame you don't have any pics, you'd make them look so good :D 

    I did mention EX sets, but guess that wasn't really much. I searched some more and found out there are 2 EX sets (Jenus and Sera) and Special Bisar sets (w/recoloured Bisars, Ragna and Nyrguise). They all come with human heads. Ragna set is next on my list now.

    I really hope you could show us the ones you've got :)

    Thank you for sharing :)  Cross Bisar looks nice...All nice looking ones are so hard to find now.

    I don't know if I should thank you for showing me the way or blame you for making me spend more money on toys :lol  But I really like those guys. When I got Jenus and Ragna from you I had no idea who they were, but now that I got recolour versions of them I might chase other characters as well.

    I like the looks of these. If I had room in my life for any more toy lines I would definitely consider them!
