    So this is a continuation of the Medabots line (Those were called Dual Models as well and made by Takara)?

    Not sure - these are supposed to be around 10 inches tall & almost exactly accurate to the film renders.

    Just making an observation :D . The Medabots Dual Models also had inner skeleton type bodies in which the armour would attach to.

    closetrat - thank you for the images. I'll add them to their resource pages :) 

    The name "Dual Model" has been used sporadically by Takara since the 80s, starting with Dagram :) 
    I have Votoms Dual Model (reissue) and the most recent use I think was in Dual Model Zwei series, which had no add-on parts!
