    I own GaoGaiGar w/ Goldion Hammer and Choryujin w/ Volfogg. Ive decided i want more from them. The revoltech stuff looks awesome, im planning on getting Mazinkaiser

    But heres the question:

    Is the gunbuster figure they put out worth it? I need to hear from someone who has it.

    I don't own the figure but don't you get the Soul of Chogokin version instead? It has the transforming gimmick, missles-in-fingers gimmick etc.

    The SOC version is really expensive, large, and not the size of my GGG figures. All things i do not want. Im trying to be minimalist about my future collection decisions.

    From the pics it looks good but im wondering about quality and joint work. Its no revolver joint system but im not that picky.

    Yeah, I get your point. One of the reasons why I have not picked up the SOC version is because of other "purchase considerations" also.

    The Kaiyodo Gunbuster seems like a really cool and very poseable action figure. I see no problem there. =)

    I also wonder how large the GGG action figs are. I think Revoltechs are the size of a Deluxe yes?

    around basic sized at the most, my Ingram is about 5 inches tall, don't know whether Mazinkaiser will be any bigger

    If the Revoltech line was larger say, ML size i would have gotten them without a second thought. The line up for the line is solid. Example, Getters, EVAs, Pat Labour etc.

    You say you have the GGG with Goldion Hammer, right?

    What's your opinion on it? I was thinking of buying one recently but I see no reviews for it.

    The Revoltechs are great little figures. Size wise, I'd put them at the height of a Beast Wars Deluxe, 5 inches is about the right height for them. Great designs, I can't fault the line at all so far. I'm planning on doing a "dream team" with the Revoltechs once I get Convoy and Mazinkaiser - Mazinkaiser, Convoy, Getter 1, Giant Robo and Star Gaogaigar. They ought to look good together. All in the same non-scale too.

    My dream team lineup is:

    Mazinkaiser
    Gunbuster
    GaoGaiGar w/goldion hammer(already have)
    ChoRyuJin w/ Volfogg(already have)

    I might want Getter Robo 1 but im not sure.

    If they were ever to do God Gravion id get him in a snap. Same goes for Godannar.

    gunbuster is supposed to be HUGE. to intentionally limit yourself to anything but the largest incarnation possible is blasphemy.

    Thanks for the resurrection :thumb 

    That is a good figure though, got mine at Media Play way back when. I miss that place.
