    We have no idea when they'll see release. And that makes me irrationally angry.

    I genuinely want to know how any company stays in business selling 2-4 low-run toys per year.

    It really is bonkers. Not sure how GMR fits into Action Toys' whole business strategy, but I can't imagine it's performing to anyone's expectations.

    I'm out. The pace of releases is glacial and the figures aren't really turning out the way I hoped anyways. This is coming from a person that initially planned to go full completionist on the line. I'm still interested in the DX Bike Robo, but otherwise I'm hoping that a company like Bandai eventually gets to take a stab at these classic figures.

    They need to get a few more out to even the sides. Turbo, Loco, and Fitor we've seen...Small Foot, Flip Top, and Hans Cuff would be good choices.

    Honestly, though, if Bandai had just reissued the original 600 series toys, I would've moved Heaven and Earth to import cases.

    I don't think Flip Top appeared in Revenge of Cronos.

    I dropped out after I got Blackbird and they revealed Missile Tank and Shuttle were next. If Blue Jet & Loco ever see the light of day I may grab them, but currently the line has totally lost my interest.

    Tony from robotoybase (ex Chimunmung) is a very reputable seller in my own experience.

    Apart from that, i'd like to have 100 € to put on this toy NOW!

    I didn't realize that it was Chimunmung until I tried setting up an account and it said I was already in the system. :lol

    Ouch, $15.53 cheapest shipping option to NY. I'll wait till a US retailer gets it, or ebay.

    I need to get me that Bike robo DX!
    Will Japanese stores like anime-export or amiami have pre-orders for it?

    I have a classics go-bot question and was thinking this thread would be the best place to ask.
    Does anyone have any information on the plastic capsule toy model kits from the 80s? I remember as a kid getting a dive dive from a vending machine. There were others as well, but that is the one I remember. Solid single color plastic and somewhat simplified, but fully transformable.
