I'm interested in finding and buying this guy. How much does he go for??
I have no idea, but if you ever find two of them, let me know! That is pretty awesome.
I love that Powergilde, though as I understand it they were originally sold as unbuilt resin kits, and not very durable. Hope I'm wrong though, as I wouldn't mind having one either.
hmm...I seem to remember these being built - but perhaps there was an unbuilt option too? Otherwise I think when they first came out - they cost about $250. I have a feeling they have gone up from there
After owning 2 Jizaitoys myself, let me just tell you first hand: they are NOT what you think they are or what they seem to be. They are a low quality floppy mess and cost an arm and a leg to boot.
Sure, they LOOK good but that is absolutely where it ends.
You can't pose them and you can't get them to hold a pose in vehicle mode, IF you can even transform them at all. People go into these thinking they are soooo awesome, believe me they are not. I guarantee you, that thing will cost you at least $200 and after you get it you will be like "what the hell did I just buy for $200?".
I hate to tell you this but that's way it is. Seriously spend your $200+ dollars on something else, you won't regret it.
If you need any more info about these, don't hesitate to PM me about it.
What a Buzz Killington! Lol.
Thank you for the warning though. I really appreciate it. I knew it was resin but didn't know it was that cheaply made. It looks so damn good and sturdy. You just saved me some money.
Was it this figure that you had or one of the others?
I had Cyclonus and still have Wheelie. Poorly engineered at best and cost you $200 on the LOW end.
The bottom line though, is that you won't be satisfied....at all.
Man... That Wheelie looks good too. How limited were these??
My Cyclonus was #15 of 40. BUT they did another run of them in metallic colors so that didn't mean much. I can't remember what # my Wheelie is, probably similar.
After classics Cyclonus came out I couldn't even GIVE that damned thing away. I ended up trading it up for another(much better) custom Shockwave upgrade Kit.
Poorly engineered? Sure doesn't look like it.
if yours was loose, maybe you used the wrong size pins.
Trust me they are.
I did not build mine. The guy that owns/runs Jizaitoys built them and sold them to me. The fit and everything about the transformation just didn't work and would fall apart if you even so much as looked at it the wrong way.
I guess if you did a lot of reconstruction and super-glue intervention it would help a little but damn for $200 I expected to not have to do all that.
prolly a case of well engineered for display piece, terrible for playing...uh, i mean posing! posing my action figure! not toy!
Did that Ironhide ever come to fruition? I remember seeing a very work-in-progress pic a while ago, but I can't recall hearing anything since.
I have a metallic Cyclonus #16 out of 40. I've also seen a colored clear version too. Once you get it in a pose do not move him. Had to build up the joints with nail polish. Do you have any pics of the Shockwave upgrade? Is this the one where you need a Revoltech figure to attach to?
Yes, I want to see this Shockwave too..
