    Well, thanks to Vangelus' youtube reviews, he's gotten me REALLY interested in the Brave toys.

    As of right now, I have an MP King ExKiser in the mail to me and the MP Dragon Kiser will be mine in the near future.

    really, all I'm looking for are some good suggestions with really good descriptions of the toy (pics would help too ^_^) and places to buy the little money leeches from.

    Someone call? As they've suggested the Brave thread is the place to go. Recommendations depend on whether your after new stuff or old. I can recommend a few old stuff. Namely:

    Pegasus Saber (Giant robot Centaur? Sweet!)
    Great Goldran (Bling! Bling! Especially the reissue)
    Battle Bomber (Rough around the edges but each mech is basically a quadruple former (Robot, vehicle, animal and combiner piece)
    Super Guardion (personal fav)
    Great Might Gaine Perfect Mode (Big and sturdy combiner with two Locomotive Steam Engines!)
    Shadow Dagwon (Quadruple changer at the core with three animal guardians to combine with. And its a ninja :D )

    New stuff theres quite a bit as well:
    MP Braves as you already know.
    CM's Brave Goukin (Beware. Not everything in this line can be attributed to being a brave. Patlabor, Goushogun etc are NOT braves. Raijinoh is brave's long lost brother :D )

    Of Brave Goukins they made:

    Gaogaigar (Being reissued soon with improvements)
    Star Gaogaigar
    Genesic Gaogaigar (reissued last year with small improvements)
    Gaofighgar

    Also they made DX Great Baan Gaan which is also one of my personal favs.

    Probably should have introduced yourself in the already existing Brave thread here.

    Shin thinks he wants to get into Brave.

    Shin wonders why in the Blue Hell he is talking about himself in the 3rd person!

    Note that the old Brave toys, even the old Takara GGG ones, are mostly bricks.

    True.

    However, that is part of the fun. They carry on and take further the original G1 style Transformers (like Powermasters and the Victory series). It's what G1 could have been like if it'd not gone down the road of Micromasters and Action Masters.

    Also the fact they lack articulation often aids the combining aspect - they are amazingly cool combiners after all. I doubt that could have been achieved if they had articulation.

    And that is where the fun of Brave lies - they are not articulated, but they have some extremely interesting transformations and combinations. Goldran's Silvarion for example has a very awesome and unique transformation especially where Drill Silver is concerned.

    Yeh. But articulation wouldnt hurt :p . The basic Gaigar and Ryu brothers are probably some of the most articulate old brave toys.
