    Dude, those like in the "candy toy" range? So you can't expect much. Here are a number of Votom toys...and they can be pretty pricey.

    I will only list the more recent ones:

    i) Takara's 1/18 range

    http://cgi.ebay.com/1-18-DMZ-X-ATH-...ZWD1VQQ_trksidZp1638.m118.l1247QQcmdZViewItem

    ii) Yamato's 1/12 range

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Yamato-1-12-Vot...ZWD1VQQ_trksidZp1638.m118.l1247QQcmdZViewItem

    iii) Bandai's 1/20

    http://cgi.ebay.com/1-20-Bandai-Vot...ZWD1VQQ_trksidZp1638.m118.l1247QQcmdZViewItem

    This one is a model kit with pretty straightforward assembly - no glue or painting needed.

    iv) Maxfactory Votoms 1/35

    These are made of PVC-like material. Very posable but it can't go into the infamous "dog-mode".

    I have all but the Takara one and surprisingly, my fave is the Bandai version.

    Wait for SydneyY to reply - he's the resident EXPERT on all things Votoms! :D

    SydneyY would know. He started a thread on Votoms a few months back I think.

    HERE I AM!!!

    Thanks guys. I'm no expert, just the noisiest here :lol 

    They are Kaiyodo KT figures. Very nicely detailed with painted cockpit and pilot, but no articulation. You can push a lever down on the back to put them in "down" form, and that's all. They are basically display pieces.

    The list LigerPrime provided is a good one. If you don't mind small size figures TakTom Actic Gear line (1/48) has great lineup :)

    SydneyY! Long time no see! What's the latest Votoms you have bought? I didn't get the Bandai Custom Red Shoulder because I never saw him in my country! Do you have news if Bandai will release other 1/20 kits like the Strikedog?

    Mate! I don't see you much since the toyark split :cry  I only come here to post in Brave thread sometimes and you don't come to TF toyark :( 

    I didn't buy that Kaiyodo Bloodsucker I was talking about (got CR Black Convoy instead). Maybe next month....

    Not really following Bandai news, though I expect hear something if they are planning on new 1/20 kits.

    Hope you'll score a Scopedog :)

    Yeah, bro! I rarely go to the TF toy forums because I'm keeping to my goal to just stick to reissues. My last TF was Sky Lynx! The TF animated toys look so tempted but I'm resisting them.

    With regards to Bandai's 1/20 Votom kits, I sure hope they are not canceled because I sure like the line alot! I want to see Strikedogs, Standing Turtles and Fattys! :D
