    with i wa t to say, the Gems share a lot of similarity with the transformers Mythos
    both are made rathen than been born
    they both whent troug a civil war that found it way to earth
    and both are inorganic asexual races

    I'm happy to hear about the Shodo Kamen Riders; I started a few months ago, and I've been loving them.

    I had the same realization about wave 4, hoping there's all 6 Shocker Riders, etc.

    But the secret figure in wave 5 isn't another Zect Trooper, it's a Skyrider variant... I think? But you were right about Dark Kabuto BANDAI 2017年3月發售: 食玩 SHODO Kamen Rider VS5 共7款 @500Yen

    I hope the series keeps going. Having all these characters in this size is great. I seriously hope there'll be more Heisei.

    In answer to your question about successful transforming robot kickstarters. Unrustable Bastards is not the first. I believe the first is Woobots, the wooden transforming robots.

    Excited for the listen question, seeing as I don't actually remember what I asked

    Aw, half-expected mention of Fireshot and Vanquish from that image.

    Dammit, TJ, stop finding such cool weird Chinese toy lines!

    Oh yeah, head sculpts, forgot about asking that. I did mean it like Steven Universe. Probably should have said Vangelus Universe and the Crystal Podcasters

    Well, there are two versions of the Skyrider suit, so that would make sense. I've been buying extras off of someone over at Tokunation since wave 1 and am really enjoying them, although I got hosed on Stronger because of wave 3 case assortment.

    Anyway, I'd like to chime in on awesome head sculpts: Alternators Optimus still has one of my all-time favorite Prime heads and I think my favorite Starscream noggin probably belongs to the Energon version.

    I have a feeling that as of wave 3, the assortments are being laid out more and more with the idea that hardcore fans are buying entire cases. If wave 4 is laid out such that the dupes are enough Shocker Riders to use one of each colour of scarf...

    Props for recognizing how good Animated Megatron's head is on the leader toy. One of the best sculpts out there in the line, imo.
