    Flame toys win in term of design and engineering. I have Op and the KO tarn from MC. If you compare the price, Moshow win.
    But compare with the KO tarn from MC, they are both at the same price tag and I would say the KO tarn is the best of all three

    The problem with most of 3rd party metal build style figure is they are either too big for my taste or too simple in design. I still think bandai MB is the best overall. Sentinel/flame toy are cool too but they are so pricy. Bandai MB is on the higher price tag too, but I can still sell them later for the same or even higher than what I paid for them.

    Yeah, thanks again. I look forward to some more figures from them. You didn’t go for this Shingen figure though did you? I’d highly recommend it if you like the look/style. If not, I’d keep an eye on their other or future products to get one when you see something you like.

    Yeah, agree with you on Flame Toys. I don’t have any and can’t justify the cost for anything I’ve seen from them yet. My introduction to Sentinel was the Iron Man Re:Edit line and those are the finest Iron Man figures I own. Their Hulkbuster is the best figure period in my entire collection in that range of scales. I agree some of the other Mecha figures I got from them are not as good as the Re:Edit figures though and their prices can be bananas.

    Oh no I unintentionally made that sound interesting. Vinyl Figures. They suck. They’re pointless and stupidly expensive but they’ve captured my attention recently.

    Vinyl figures ARE THE original Super Robot toys that started me on this craze so that makes perfect sense!

    Just opened my MB x-1 full cloth and confirmed the front cloth can open to the same angle as in the x-0 full cloth promo picture. Now I can pass on the x-0 FC, saved $350.:D

    Very true my earliest toy memories are vinyl robots. They are just so beautiful to look at. Once I got a couple I realized I really like to have them all around on display.

    I’m curious that if the reason to pass on the X0FC is that X1FC share the same armour mechanics, assuming you have X1, X2 and X3, wouldn’t they all share the same mechanical design apart from color scheme, weapons and minor design changes. Unless of course it makes sense if the only Crossbones you own is the X1FC, as it is kinda the ultimate form/version itself.

    No, I only have two: the original x-1 with the bird, and the x-1 full cloth.
    I’m a casual MB collector and collect many other stuff too: transformers, SOC, PG, macross, metal structure, and saint seiya, etc. I don’t like to collect the same mold more than two copies, too many things to collect and limited funds.
    I feel in recent years, Bandai milk the same mold for too many times, GFFMC zaku for example.

    mmmm I am jealous of your self control.
    And speaking of some crossbones. The X-1 is currently boxed but. The base with the X-3 is pretty neat.

    Totally agree!!! I really hope this X0FC will be my last Crossbones. Although I know they’ve teased X1 Skullheart, they’ll have to release extra goodies to warrant another purchase for me… same goes with X1 Patchwork and X2 Kai…

    Im glad I personally don’t like the Ghost design, so that would be an easy pass for me.

    I had the MoShow Metal Build 00 Qant, the MoShow 1/72 Aile Strike, both the sword and launcher striker packs, and the 1/72 Hurricane. Sold all of them a couple years ago because 1/72 scale was just too big for me, and the Qant had to be sold because I needed the cash at the time, but each figure/accessory were top quality. I was astonished at how good the Aile Strike was when I first got it.
