    I just got into these guys about an hour ago and they look pretty awesome! So do you have to assemble them yourself? How much do they cost? How big are they?
    thanks! IK ive been asking quite a few questions lately so I appreciate all the help!

    You take them off the sprues yourself and assemble them yourself. And apply the stickers. Price varies on who/where you get them from, and I think they're about Scout class sized. I don't have any, but that's what I've gathered from reviews.

    I paid between 5 and 6.50 for all mine from capturedprey.com

    Most are about the size of a cyberverse commander (as you can see with kabaya ginrai and dotm cyberverse commander optimus in this pic)

    The wave with Rodimus, Inferno, and Victory Leo has much smaller toys, since they each came with parts to make Rodimus' trailer. They're just a little bigger than a standard legends toy.

    I have no idea how big the combiner guys are, I don't have any of those yet. I know they're tiny, but I don't know to what degree.

    Yeah, I only own Starscream, but it's awesome. Before I got into TF's, I was actually waning in my interest in Gundams. It was a nice kickback to build a model again, but have it be a Transformer (despite how it actually "transforms").

    I own the Gaiacross set, but I have yet to put them together, much less even open them. Thought at time to sell them too, but didn't have any local takers.

    Well, I hope this thread gets renamed to "Kabaya Transformers Appreciation Thread" or something. (Or do we have one already?)

    I love this line! :D 

    Didn't think much of these when it debuted but that opinion has changed a fair bit since.

    I'll post a done up Deszarus + a combined plane mode of Victory Saber later on when I hit the office.

    Yeah, I actually want G1 and Henkei Convoy from Set 1.

    Edit: And I just ordered them on Ebay.

    Well just don't get your hopes too high (as in picture quality) since I'm not a picture person. :lol

    Here's some I had lying around:

    That Victory Leo is NOT Kabaya. He's a Robotmaster. But he and Star Saber scale very well with Kabaya Ginrai.

    EDIT:

    I can't seem to find my Kabaya Magnus pictures but I remember that in truck mode him and Ginrai/PM Prime scale nicely with G1 Motormaster.

    Remembered that Sixshot is not Kabaya but a KO. Here's the link if anyone wants to see it:

    Will rodimus be more expensive?
    I just think he's such an awesome tf, and I love the mp-09 mold so a mini one would be sick!

    As promised, here are the pictures of Deszarus & Victory Saber which I'd built.

    There's a video on Youtube showing one how to do up the combined plane mode for Victory Saber. (Despite it not being an "official" one since the instructions were never published on Star Saber or Victory Leo's box)

    I didn't like the way certain things looked on the original video thus I made a few "alterations" myself. ;)

    One cool extra thing I'll note is that Kabaya Ginrai's cab is the exact same size as WST Convoy, so he kind of doubles as a WST Powermaster Optimus Prime.
