    My store www.chocolate-robot.com got in a new order, and like usual I had to skim off some stuff for my collection ;) . In this order I picked a great book that has as thorough a listing of Machine Robo (Go-Bot) toys as I have ever seen called Machine Robo Wedge. I also grabbed :eek: 3 new SOC's:eek:  : Getter Dragon, Getter Liger, and Battle Fever J. There is more to get still but I need to save up some more money:(  .

    Battle Fever is fantastic and comes with a huge array of die-cast weaponry.

    Anyways now for the reason why you clicked this thread... The pictures!!!!

    So u're an SOC fan huh? Those toys are really addictive and IMO the best robot toys in the market so far...I used to buy almost every single piece and its varient out there until I decided to streamline my collection...I'm buying too many toys...so alot of my SOC bots have been sold. E.g. Robo Getter etc.

    When I saw BF, I could feel the addictive urge...coming back but somehow managed to control. No choice, it was either SOC or GF!

    Congrats on your haul by the way! One of the coolest thing about BF is that it has decent articulation and the weapons look tremendous! You should post pictures of it holding various weapons and the weapon rack!

    If you get BF you will be pulled back into the line. The combination of lots of useful articulation and awesome weaponry combine to create on of the best SOC's to date IMO. He actually is a pretty good bang for the buck too.

    Its good that BT's slowed down for a while so that I could go back and get some pieces I've been wanting for a LONG time.

    If I get time I'll shoot a few more pics, but my camera is acting all f'ed up.

    It was really hard not to get the new Aquarion, but I have the first release and don't know if I love the toy to the combined total of $500ish.

    I know dude, I know...this SOC piece is one of Bandai's best to date in terms of sculpt, articulation and weapons! That's why I'm passing him up...i'm so afraid that if I get him, I will back track and buy them all the SOCs that I've sold off!

    As for Aquarion...although the newer version looks good, I think its good enough that you have the original version...kind of excessive to spend a varient at that price point.

    So very tempted. It doesn't help that this is also the first Super Sentai SOC (I think?).

    Yeah, I'm wondering what's gotten them on a Toku kick. Sentai I understand (30th Anniversary), but -Spiderman-??

    Also heard rumours of a combining Super Sentai SOC, but I'm not sure if it was complete and total hearsay.

    That would be Awesome!! I would love to see some more of the Godaikins and even some of the newer Zords done as SOC's.
