    I wonder if there will be a Kabaya of the new Metroplex? mind you how long did it take Kabaya to bring out a Fort Max? I think we could be waiting a while for a Metroplex one

    I picked mine up from captured prey. The price isn't bad at all. Fast service and packed really well too.

    I've just noticed this thread, and love Transformers-related model kits!
    I recently acquired the new Fortress Maximus Kabaya kit, and have to agree that it is superb! I can't wait to get some more. Big powered is next on my list I think.

    Here's a group shot of my vintage kits:

    I still have quite a few Kabayas in my sales thread. I can usually send a set of three (except Fort Max) by 1st class to save on shipping. I'll also price match Captured Prey if you guys like. I need to clear some space.

    I think he's bigger than some Voyagers too. There were a bunch of comparison shots when he first came out.

    Wow, that's quite a collection! How old are those vintage kits?

    Thanks!

    They're all Microchange/Diaclone era to late Japanese G1. Roughly '84-'89 inclusive.

    Hey guys, quick question. Are these kabayas the same size as WSTs?

    Anyone know where I can get Kabaya kits of the following?

    Weirdwolf
    Skullcruncher
    Mindwipe

    Hardhead

    I have Brainstorm and Highbrow. They're not World's Smallest scale. I once had a chance at Weirdwolf and would love to get those mentioned above if possible.

    Here's a pic I posted at one point. it shows WST, Kabayas, Legends, Targetroids and Micromaster Devastator to give you an idea how how they all fit in together.

    The Kabaya Kits can be very addictive and I highly recommend getting Fortress Maximus.

    I purchased all my Kabaya Kits from bigkid24 and he's definitely a TRUSTWORTHY forum member to deal with. :thumb 

    Also just to share.... Here are some pretty cool Gumball Transformers Kits that you don't see everyday...

    They transform, but unfortunately they are parts-formers.

    Funny... All 4 of these have recently been MP'ed.

    Unfortunately the plastic is so brittle on these that I had to glue them together in order to hold. :(

    Thanks for the vote of confidence!

    Is that one of the Fairlady molds on the left? Based on your comments about them getting MP'ed I'm assuming yes.

    Yeah, that's Prowl.

    The bot mode was cool, but the rocket launcher broke off so I glued it together in car mode.

    Davheed has a ton of these for sale if you're interested.

    Also, if you look closely at Prime... It almost looks like the WST Prime.
