    Well, I'm finally on the Kabaya train. Ordered Fort Max from Captured Prey on Monday. Can't wait for him to arrive. Seeing these pics makes my mouth water even more!

    good purchase.

    he's a kit build. as if you didn't already know that.

    the stickers for Powerglide & Windcharger can be a pain in the arse to apply. because they're so tiny

    I recommend using tweezers or a toothpick to hold the stickers while trying to position them. It gives you a little more control, and less of the sticker will be touching the tool than if it was on your finger (if that makes any sense).

    Really looking forward to receiving my Fort Max. I'll never have the room for a proper one, so the little chap can go with my WSTs.

    Thanks for the advice! I'll definitely be careful. I'm super OCD when it comes to my label placement. >.>

    Same here. The Wife saw I had pre-ordered the other Fort Max and quickly gave me the DAFUQ look. This lil guy will be good enough for now. Plus, he looks like awesome desk kibble.

    In the last 2 pictures you can also see the Takara Seven kits for Windcharger ("Charger") and Brawn-as-Bumblebee ("Gong"). Are the Seven kits ok for this thread? Got a few more pics I can share...

    All the best

    Is Deathsaurus worth it? Looks kind of neat. Can anyone tell me how Kabaya TF kits relate to Power Rangers/Super Sentai candy toy kits?

    I really like Defensor, how is the plastic on these little dudes? It looks good, but they're pretty small.

    Fort Max's definitely a worthwhile purchase. You won't regret it!

    Here's some pics of Deszaras to help some of you decide

    Very nice thread with lots of gorgeous photos! I'm afraid my most treasured kabaya kits aren't transformable ones - Car Robo Brothers - but all the pics make me want to pick up some newer ones :)

    I never got any Kabaya Kits so I figured I would try them out with Fort Max and the Zone series. Overall, I like them and it was fun putting them together.

    As far as I know they all transform but they are partsformers.

    bigkid24 is right. I think most, if not all, of the new Kabaya figures are trans/partsformers. Still fun nevertheless

    I got the WFC Optimus one of these at my local collectables shop. I like the alt mode better than the robot mold (and I had forgotten that these were parts formers) so in vehicle mode it stays!

    If anyone is looking for the Deathzaurus chest piece little guy (I don't know its name), let me know! He's a fun little guy, but I don't plan on getting the full set.

    I have the new fort max kit. It's intresting how it's actually bigger than prime deluxes.
