    You can afford both?! I felt such a comradeship (if there's such a word) when we were exchanging "we are broke" posts :cry 

    Just kidding, I am still broke, though.

    I'd say Dancougar, just by the look of it :)

    Dude, at that "time" I was broke until I got something "extra" from my last company this week! LOL! Yeah, I'm leaning towards Dancougar now because he looks better and his size! More feedback please!

    I'd Probably go for Dancougar, based on its size, but Gunbuster does look extremely cool

    Slugslinger - ya, i saw that pix at I was impressive...the thing that got it going for Gunbuster is the engineering and the extras...

    Tech Spec - I can get Dancougar for around USD150-160...I don't have to include shipping as both toys are available in my country. Gunbuster is around the same price range.

    Dancougar first. Big, triplechangers and combiner. Massive gun and sword. Headmaster.

    Gunbuster is brand-new and will be around for a while, but Dancougar had to be reissued to be found for such a price, and how likely is it that it'd be reissued again later?

    Go with Dancougar now, and wait a little while for Gunbuster. Wait too long though, and who knows, he might end up being the next Dancougar in terms of secondary market value!

    Well both look awesome, but I would say get Dancougar. I love how it looks, and I also liked the show (what I saw of it).

    Being totally impartial (I know next to nothing about SOC), I'm digging Gunbuster if for nothing else than the neat Alt. mode and the nifty color scheme.

    Gunbuster.

    Why?

    It's the fucking Gunbuster. Bit sad that it can't do the proper pose for the Buster Beam though.

    Defnitiely Gunbuster.

    It's MUCH more iconic.

    ...what about Voltes 5?

    Are the flaws on Dancougar really that bad? (in regards to the CollectionDX review)

    I may be a bit biased *points at my avatar and sig (even though my sig is from Diebuster)*

    BUT GET GUNBUSTER, DAMMIT! lol

    It's seriously the awesomest mecha ever. Taking on BILLIONS of aliens on at once and TOTALLY handing them their asses. And the ending of the show is epic. Makes me cry everytime.

    GunBuster = epitome of badassery.

    Gunbuster!
    He looks awesome, especially with the cape and stand!

    EDIT: Also, Gunbuster has the Baseball Bat

    There are no flaws on Dancougar, the guy at CollectionDX was on crack.

    Yeah, thanks for the advice...I was thinking of the above. It appears that alot of local import stores in my country has overstocked on Dancougar , hence the competitive prices - that's why its a good time to get him now.

    On the other hand, Gunbuster's stock may not be that much and if I get him (Gunbuster) later, his price may "rise" like Voltes...decisions, decisions...

    According to this thread and everyone's input it seems that Dancougar is in the lead and for the following reasons:

    i) design
    ii) triple changing combiner
    iii) size

    On the other hand, the Gunbuster is also very well designed and has cool gimmicks too like the many guns, axe, baseball bat etc.

    Sigh...I really need to weigh my opions carefully...

    Dancouga's "combination" is essentially just a big robot wearing two other robots as shoes, with a new hat.
