    Hey people.

    There's been a slew of lower-priced Galaxy Force figures in Korean packaging on sale recently. I checked out an Exillion figure (Hotshot in blue, not the red repaint), and it seems like the red plastic looks dull, and honestly, a bit cheap.

    Has anyone compared it to the Galaxy Force or Cybertron release? Are they composed of the same plastic?

    Thanks for your help.

    thanks.

    it's lower so it'll be able to sell in the korean market.

    the hasbro version is cheaper still, and that's pretty much the same thing as the japanese release as well.

    which ever mold you get of this toy, its pure win. Thr red exillion dvd exclusive is the best paint job of the mold......ok maybe goldbug too.

    IMO the Goldbug version is incredible. But any version of the mold is pretty nice, so you won't lose out.

    I believe the Korean releases are handled by Sonokong, which means they should be pretty much exactly the same high standards as any other official release. I'd be very surprised if that were not the case.

    The only MAJOR change between Cybertron Hot Shot and Galaxy Force Excellion is the screws for the spoiler pieces on the Galaxy Force version are covered. That's it.

    Sonokong no more. Korean Galaxy Force now falls under Mocom Toys. :D

    looks like the purchase is, quite literally, in the bag.

    thanks all.
