    I'm really starting to worry about the future of this line. After three figures the line seems to have become a webshop exclusive. First was Tekkaman Evil and now Ngee Khiong reports that tekkaman blaster mode will also be a webshop exclusive. This line had so much potintial esp with the Ronin Warriors characters.

    That sucks man. And I really wish they had done Tekkaman Evil and Blaster Mode in the scale of the SoC Spec...

    Dude, just get a middle man. It'll only be about 20 bucks more expensive than what Japan gets.

    i'm going at least to try a proxy service to get blaster.... as long at it accept credit cards (and gives me time to get the money).... cuz paypal hates me... and even if its JUST 20 bucks more than usual... it's still too much knowing how much costs Armor Plus figures.... i even have trouble buying $40+ shinkis.....

    I agree, but still... BoA is knocking the idea around the executive board room about imports being brought here. At least, that's what their Twitter guy/girl said.

    So dose anyone see any hope for this line? Right now I think we'd be extremly lucky to get Ryo with inferno armor. I'm kinda kicking myself for not pre ordering Evil.

    I've already written off the line after Ryo. I might go back and get Blade though.

    This line showed a lot of potential, but this recent shift to online webshop only is rather disappointing. I really hope Bandai goes back to doing regular releases instead of web exclusives. The possibility of having the whole crew of ronin warriors would just be epic on my shelf.
