    Ah, cheers. I got so swept up I didn't notice the different company logo on the placard.

    To be fair, it is wild to see two Genesic’s in development at the same time.

    It is wild to see two Genesic's especially when neither is from Bandai. Seriously what the hell are they waiting for? SoC has been dragging forever and the RG should've been out by now based on how aggressive they normally are with the line.

    Their GGGG is an easy pass for me, no diecast... and only 20cm... too small to be next to SOC GGG/GFG.

    Sentinel ones gonna cost 100x more... *yikes*...

    Huh, such an odd choice to make gggg tiny and exkaiser huge. Might still grab gggg just as something to fiddle with if it's not too expensive.

    I wonder if Exkaiser and GGGG are different lines?

    Man. A Takara-made Bravern toy. Feels like we've come full circle on this.

    Seems to be the same line, but different levels of um... 'design choices' to my eyes.
    GGGG looks like it's like the old DX and SMP had a baby while Exkaiser is some other companies all together.
    Can't say anything about Bravern since all there is for comparison to him is the Gattai who still is missing his Burn Dragon.

    I love that we're getting Generations-style BRAVE figures, that's pretty much exactly what I always wanted--MP's are good, but they would've probably been prohibitively expensive, especially in this day and age.

    I'm definitely getting Exkaiser as he's my favorite Brave, but would pick up Mightgaine (and offload the GSC one) if they make it, maybe some of the others, definitely J-Decker if they make him.

    This Exkaiser is the most exciting news in a long time. Goodsmile's Brave stuff has been great and fun, but this looks to really focus on playability which is incredible.

    Can anyone confirm if this Exkaiser is supposed to be a more playable, TF legacy esque, action figure as opposed to what GSC is putting out? The added on base mode and jet mode for the trailer make me think it's going for a more playable toy instead of a posing figure.

    Very much doubt any of these will have much diecast at all. That's just not how they make their figures. If they did, it would be advertised as a feature, much like how that idw rodimus they're making is being marketed as an 'alloy model'.

    After re-watching the T-Spark trailer, i think you're right, the only diecast stuff are the Transformers and Zoids at the start, which they heavily advertise in the trailer. I'm sure they would do the same if the ToyRise stuff has it, but didn't mentioned any...

    Can't say I'm fully happy to see this, since I spent so much on the non-combining Genesic and the option part set. While the version I have will probably still be more articulated, this will be larger, besides the ability to combine.

    God, what an insane amount of news to wake up to. :eek: 

    Takara coming out swinging after seeing everyone else making new Braves lol.
    Both look nice but the sizes are all over the place, Exkaiser is too big and Genesic is too small to look good with the GSC Braves really. :( 

    Another version of Bravern is welcome.

    But this,

    I have been waiting for some Ganleon love for years. :D

    Are we sure that's GGGG? I heard on Twitter they're doing Predaking in the new line and well, it looks similar to big G.

    Always love seeing some Exkaiser love, since that was the only Brave I had as a kid. Didn't even know what Brave was at the time. I just thought the design was super cool. Seeing this new one makes me excited, but also reminds me that we never got an update for that SOC one that got revealed a while back.
