    Whatever those are, they do look quite cool. Unfortunately, I have yet to see them in my country yet. But if its my Bandai, I assume the quality should be the same as Bandai's "Rider and Monster" series from Masked Rider Ryuki?

    Never heard of the Maden line.

    Looks like a cross between Sentai & Amdriver. Me wants!
    That Fire Kong is pretty sweet.Would fit nicley between Burning Convoy & Zoids Kong.

    OOps! My bad! Hahaha! My mind is too busy on work and on Yamato's Valks (seems like some retailers in my country are dumping them) and SOTA's Street Fighter round 4 (which just came out)!

    Hmmm, if those things are by Takara I'm not too sure about the quality of these. I will make a trip down to my import stores to check them out.

    They look pretty good durability-wise, the articulation looks kinda limited though. The whole entire toyline looks to be pretty dependant upon buying the other stuff in the series if you want to get the full potential out of them.

    They do look interesting...do you own one? It terms of durability, which line can I compare this to? And how tall is the figure? GI Joe size?

    I don't own one personally, but from info i've gathered the A-R Ryukendo figures look to be about 5". Roughly the same size as a Kamen Rider Souchaku Henshin or R&M figure.

    Blast! I was hoping that it would be either GI Joe aka 3 3/4 inch or ML aka 6 inch...thanks for the answers, though! :)

    Thanks for the reply and the link...those photo galleries definately helped me decide if I'll buy them or not. I too wish the figures were 3 3/4 scale, but I still might pick up a set just to have something different.

    Those look absolutely awesome. Especially that shark looking thing. The transform looks extremely simple, but it still completely changes the animal to a jet-like thing.

    I wonder how sloppy that would look next to my AmDriver stuff?
