    Darn, those guys never sleep! I have yet to get Gunbuster and Ideon! Iron Gear looks really good. I don't know who Raideen is though. Does it transform??

    I'm surprised they did Iron Gear, despite the previous release of Xabungle. As for Reideen, I can't believe you haven't heard of Reideen, but to answer your question, it does indeed transform into God Bird mode (not really that cool looking, but it's something).

    Holy chit, Reideen?!

    Yes, Reideen transforms, albeit not very intricately. However, the actual engineering -might- be intricate if they want the botmode to look good without parts removal!

    I believe Iron Gear is either the giant red battleship or giant blue land-battleship from Xabungle.

    Iron Gear is a huge red battleship from Xabungle. I've got the vintage one. Basically (on the vintage) the legs split in half and the torso becomes the bridge. I'd love to see how the SoC handles this guy.

    And Reideen? Sweet!

    Iron Gear was my poor mans SDF-1 when I was a kid.

    I can't believe how huge the new IRON GEAR is. So many SOC's to get, so little money to buy them....

    Iron Gear was an odd choice IMHO, but at least they finish the Xabungle 'bots :)  I had the cheap Convertors version when I was a kid and have a slightly beat DX version (broken antennas) that I got aon a flea market find for $5 :)  A definate must buy for me :) 

    Raydeen is a no brainer for me to buy (Since I'm an old Shogun Warriors guy!) Now they just need to put Dangard Ace out so I can have the comic book trio (with Combattra) on my top shelf! I'd even buy some original comic art to display behind the 3 if I ever get Dangard!

    Glad I'm being so picky on movie toys since SOC and Macross look to be aiming for my wallet pretty hard!
