    hahah, with no stickers on they don't look as cool as those first release photos we saw earlier.

    the appeal is the cheapish price and the FREE CANDY :)

    The stickers were an expected drawback, but the Henkei Prime is pleasantly convincing even with minimal detailing. I can hope the other two look as decent with stickers.

    I'm hoping we get those here in Taiwan. I remember a few years back we had Gundam candy toys like those. I collected a whole bunch, don't know what happened to them though.

    With some patience and a good paintbrush, those could look simply fantastic.

    It looks pretty good with the stickers. I already have Classics Prime and RM Star Saber but I might get these just because they're kinda neat.

    It's awesome that Kabaya is giving us fully transformable, build-yourself kits again after all those years. I'll buy the whole set just to congratulate them!

    These are pretty cool for five dollars or whatever. I'd definately pick up a couple iif I come accross them in the uk - shipping makes them far too expensive for what they are to import tho.

    You probably wont find these in the UK. At least I've never seen candy toys sold here.

    not in WHSmiths or anything, but i'd imagine some will turn up on ebay.co.uk and stuff.
