    I LOVE that image. Land Before Time is one of my favorite movies, and that picture is adorable.

    So I will say that the GGG minipla doesn’t have anymore last removal/ swapping than the SOC GGG. The only part that is a bit annoying is that the lion head needs to be manually moved between Galeon and Gaigar mode instead of just hinging (it’s not that big of a deal in practice). Not that it should change your opinion on it, but there really isn’t any part swapping necessary like on Voltron. I was just messing with it last night so I figured I’d give a hands on opinion.

    I have it as well, and the parts swapping isn't too bad, like you said, and it comes with the 'transformation' hands like the SOC one does so you can swap out more proportional ones on him.

    The two bigger/biggest issues I do have with it though are a) inserting the fangs on the lion head almost always results in stress marks on it, and b) Gao Liner's window detail and blue stripe along the sides are stickers, which, if you know how it transforms, is kind of a terrible decision to that be a sticker.

    Granted, I'm sure any decent painter could absolve that issue, because for someone like me, who can't afford the SoC, it's not a bad substitute.

    Think I tracked it down. Looks like it's a t-shirt design on ript apparel.

    And I bought one. They've got a 20% sale with PREBF code, so why not?

    Yeah I just leave all the transformation versions of stuff on. It doesn’t bother me and I think it looks fine with them. And personally I just left off the stickers because I really don’t trust minipla stickers to begin with and it looks pretty much fine without them.

    Day & Night... wasn't BAD, but relied heavily on the strength on the brand. That's how UT rolls, good things followed by blah things riding the high from the good things.

    My big "OH BOY to oh... okay" is KFC's Snapdragon. Not bad, but not exciting.

    I don't know who it was this episode that kept taking huge gulps of liquid without hitting mute but don't think I couldn't hear that.

    Also for Super Minipla, you should get the Getter Robo set. They don't transform at all! And you can finally have Getter in all three forms that are anime accurate AND poseable!

    Don't forget the g-stone in the head crest. There's a reason you get three of them. I've had to use all three, all three times they came up.

    It's a good set, but the next one is really annoying. Making you get a P Bandai two pack for Liger and Poseidon. They better at least complete the other two Shin Getters, too. I also kind of want them to do Go. Since they can actually make that one transform. Hein would also be pretty cool. That hasn't gotten any merch at all, as far as I know.

    I am just waiting with bated breath for any more news on the line. If Vol. 4 isn't Shin 2 and 3 then I'm probably gonna flip a table.

    And I for one would really love a Texas Mack based on the Shin vs. Neo design.

    I've only ever had to use one of the spares if I dropped it because they're so small. That's why I assumed there was 3.

    The part about Gaogaigar was weird. Plenty of Super Minipla kits swap parts, but Gaogaigar isn't one of them. You pull off the lion head and put it in the other position, and you have to pull off the panels covering the fists. Everything else works the way it's supposed to, as far as I remember.
