    Yesterday i came accross a store locally that got several Sonokong figures, like BWII & Neo but also they had The Magne Power Robot Man Endeavor and Robotman Dean (plus more Microman stuff, like the Micro Trailer/AM Prime Trailer repaint).

    Unfortunately they didnt had the prices for all this stuff yet since they pretty much had just received them at the office. Probably by mid week they would have everything sorted out

    What would be a good price to pay for each being Korean reissues? I dont even know the current online prices?

    Edit: Damn! toyarena have them for $49.99 & $99.99 respectively! But still, what do you think i should pay for each?

    I'm not entirely sure, but I would say Toy Arena's prices are generally in the upper reasonable area. If it's lower than their prices, it's good. Any higher and it's not really worth it.

    I'm curious. In the BW stuff, did they have Tripledecus or Killer Punch? Those two are ridiculously hard to find.

    I don't think Sonokong released full assortments of the Beast Wars toys, just like they tend to omit the Transformer-based Brave toys and anything from Exkaiser from their releases of the Brave series.

    Don't know about Tripledacus, but Killerpunch was a one-episode wonder in Neo so maybe they didn't bother with him.

    I'm not really sure. One thing that's kind of annoying, is that they released most of the versus sets, but hardly any of the single packs.

    It sucks. There's been like one of each of those sold on here, ever.

    Yeah, realy weird about that... i always wanted a Sonokong X-9 Jaguar!

    I wonder if Takara simply couldnt find the molds or maybe denied their use to keep these figures exclusive to japan? Who knows

    Well, anyway, im going later today to the store to check if there are prices already, maybe make a list of available figures for fellow fans (national and international) if the price is decent :)

    Not bad. A little sad that they didn't get much BW or Braves, but they got tons of Microman, which is awesome.

    There's pics of pretty much all that stuff here. Only the links on the right. The ones on the left are all reissues. Endeavor is cool, but a shame they don't have Dean. It's definitely the cooler looking of the two.
    1999 Microman Series

    I have the Sonokong Big Convoy, and it's great.

    Finally, respect prices, bigger stuff like Endeavor, Big Convoy, Galvatron or Megastorm, are priced around $25-30 (by current exchange rates), smaller stuff alot less, like $8-10 (Heck! Captain Shark was $15!)

    In a couple of weeks im going back to get more stuff, like the Acromonsters set, Robotace and even the Sky Garry repaint (wich they found today!)

    About Microman Endeavor

    Hi there!
    I´ve been lookin´for years to get a microman Endeavor for a good price, the only place i´ve found they´re not very expensive is in the Toys Arena Page, but now that u mention u got your endeavor for around $25-30 i think i can finally get my hands on one of those little bastards...

    By the way, if your info is right then we live in Mexico, i live in Mexicali, B.C., so, creo que mejor podríamos estar escribiendo en español para no andar dando tantas vueltas al asunto, tienes forma de conseguir un Endeavor de la tienda que mencionas? si es así solo dime el costo total ya con envío hasta Baja California y te depositaría inmediatapronto, ya sea por Paypal o por depósito bancario, como gustes. Gracias y suerte en todo!
