    According to my friend, he said that this is from Soul Of Chogokin. I instantly remember that cartoon, it's like...a big robot has a smaller robot inside him, then the smaller robot has ANOTHER small robot inside the second one, the third one can play rugby though IIRC.

    It will be my first buy for this line. :D

    That particular one is from Machine Robo: Revenge of Chronos. He's the Baikanfu, the smallest one is Rom Stol, hero of that series.

    You might be thinking of Gordion though, as the original Baikanfu from the 80's was a remold of that toy.
    Ironic, isn't it, that Japan's Machine Robo fleshed itself out with imports from other Super Robot lines just like TF did.

    EDIT: Looking at the picture of the base and the bottom left corner, it looks as though Leina Stol is also included in this set. So you've got both the Stol siblings in this set?

    The SoC baikanfu comes with both the main character and his sister, if every magazine ad and scan is any indication. It looks like quite the impressive piece of engineering.

    The shoulders for Vaikungfu don't look too great without Kenryu inside. But Overall I Get a Masterpiece King Exkaiser feel from this figure. If I have money when its out I'll buy it :) . Also is it just me or is Rom and Reina like the microman figures?

    This forum really needs a dedicated SoC thread, like the Brave and Busou shinki threads... I never know where to post the interesting stuff I find.
