    So, decided to revisit my Webdiver Galleon, also planning to get Gradion, Kerberion and Ortorion. Not right away though, need to let my wallet loosen up a bit first, but hopefully they'll still be available when the time comes.

    Just curious, if any of y'all have Golemon, how's the articulation on that guy? Particularly in the arms. He seems a bit too bulky, thus restricting a lot of movement.

    Oh, anyway, here and here are my Galleon reviews. They're basically identical though. Only the pics in the second link aren't resized. Same size if you save 'em though.

    Great toy, I sold mine last year. I do regret it, its even better when displayed with Cannonball.

    Love that toy... love a lot of the Webdiver series really.

    For Golemon, his shoulders have a great range of motion and he gets bicep swivels. The elbows are a little limited though. The legs are worse, aside from the kibble restricting them, you have to play around with the legs to get knee joints and then the outward hips go away, you can rotate them but not move them out. But, kibble issues again, so it wouldn't do any good. I still really like the figure despite that though

    I've got Gradion, Goremon, Jaguaron, and Sharkon. Goremon is pretty nice in combined mode. It's actually got fairly good arm articulation. This is probably the best place to get Webdiver stuff. Unfortunately, I have no idea where to get Wyverion or Daitalion. I've never seen them anywhere.

    Yeah, that's where I plan to get 'em. Need to check out what kinda shipping costs to expect though, since I live in Asia.

    I'd love to get Wyverion, looks neat, but yeah, not available there right now. How's Jaguron and Sharkon for you?

    Figured you'd get a kick out of it. Was also hoping you'd be the one to answer regarding Golemon, since I knew you had quite a few of these guys. Hmm, from the sounds of it, Golemon is okay, but getting him shipped to my country might be a bit costly. Are the individual doggies any good?

    I think Jaguaron is nice, but he's not one of the more popular figures. He doesn't really have any head articulation, due to the transformation, and the shape of his head. He's only got one elbow, his legs are limited, and kind of on the skinny side. His car and gun modes are pretty awesome, though. Personally, I think $14 is a bit too much for it. I got mine for $6, when BBTS had all their Webdiver stuff on clearance, and it was worth that much, for sure.

    Sharkon on the other hand, is just pure awesome. Great vehicle mode. Great robot mode. Great articulation. I'd say he's the best of that size class, and totally worth $14.

    I have a bunch of these figures but I can never remember their names! Except for Galleon, since his name resembles his alt mode.

    They're like the other Webdivers, quirky as hell, but they are a little weak individually since they have to combine as well. Beast modes are nice, vehicles are a bit iffy, but I still like them.

    Cool, might grab him then. Presumably Gradion's worth the 50 bucks, I'm just concerned about the shipping to my country.

    Guess who got Gradion for the price of a TF Voyager? Finish guessing? Well, you're WRONG!

    I got him for the OLD price of a TF Voyager, before the price hike a year or two ago.

    Got this guy at a shop, they just wanna get rid of the thing. So, got the box and TV cables and everything. Although it does have some paint scrapped off at the head, the paint is otherwise pretty good as far as I can tell. Chrome and everything's intact.

    This guy is one biiiiiig muthaf-SHUTYOMOUTH-just talkin' 'about Gradion.

    Pics and stuff to come later maybe.

    Glad to see some love for WD. Sometime in the next month or so I'm planning to do a full photoshoot of the entire line.

    Haven't had them out in five years or so... looking forward to getting reaquainted with them.

    Oh hi Webdiver thread! I missed you.

    I'm STILL after a Wyverion, that thing is quickly becoming my non-TF grail... Dont suppose anyone's got one they've let collect dust in a closet for a while they wouldn't mind losing?

    I used to own Garyuun. Cool toy, but didn't really fit into my collection at all, so I've since sold him off.

    I do want Gradion and Golem-On, though. But Gundam Store and More doesn't ship to Canada, despite their website saying they were working on that last summer.

    Rewatching the Gradion review, and yeah, need to find Wyverion myself. That store I mentioned has the role play sword and some of those... well, they're like, smaller versions of the main toys? Not gashapon, but something like those semi-articulated "action masters" of Armada toys. Hopefully they'll dig through their old stock and find a few more WD hanging around.

    Yeah, I've been after this guy for a long time as well.

    I have all of the bigger d00D5 but they won't fit in my light box which means no pix until I decide to drag them outside.
