    I know. Was just saying that GSC has moved beyond just title and support Braves. Likewise Bandai has already done TF based designs with Hiryu and Goryu so we know Takara is flexible there. With both hurdles cleared, there shouldn't be any barriers to more Hiryu and Goryu.

    Which Gundam? RX-78 is small but Nu is huge. Likewise Gunleon comes with a ton of gear. The big ass wrench drill alone could easily go for a $20 P-Bandai weapon expansion set. $50+ for a large HG is pretty normal. Even if Gunleon was on the smaller side, the accessories are going to drive the price up.

    Not model wise, I'm just saying he's on the real robot size and not a huge Brave super robot

    It's Evolution Toys, I don't think anyone had high expectations for this release. Still bizarre to me how this company is still alive.

    We still talking about the price of the kit? All I was saying is $50 is about right given that you get a normal sized HG, a bunch of extra weapons, expressive hands, transformation parts, and a massive weapon (at 23 cm that wrench is bigger than most MG weapons).

    I'm not concerned with whether or not Gunleon is going to scale correctly with any Brave pla. To me it is no different than throwing Tryon 3 in with a Brave display. The bots all being roughly the same size is all I’m after.

    It’s Evolution Toy. I heard rumors that they were formed by former Cm’s employees. I thank Primus every day that Good Smile is going to try to do their own version.

    I have absolutely no idea on that one, I don't really buy kits that often.

    AmiAmi stopped selling most if not all Bandai model kits during the pandemic, from what I've heard because Bandai declared a rule for their kits with the intend that stock produced for the Japanese market would be sold regionally instead of being exported.

    HLJ however continued to and still does sell them.

    So yeah, AmiAmi won't offer Gunleon, you have to buy it somewhere else.

    Some of its flaws might've been forgivable if it didn't cost so much. But for this set's price you could almost buy two copies of GSC's equivalent pair. Absolutely insane.

    It's even worse for their obscure stuff. Who on earth is going to pay twice this much for a Gekiganger or Atlanger? Except you kind of have to if you want them bcs there's no other "high-end" figures of them out there.

    Will anyone be interested with trading your Might Gaine and Kaiser with my Da-Garn (opened) and Da-Orn (sealed)? I know the prices are different so cash will be involved for sure.

    What a thoroughly impressive set all around, a literal dream come true as it's one of my top three Braves.

    Man, how did you get the double dourinken to fit though those fixed posed hands? I feel like I'm going to break the hilt when I do.

    Dourinken!!! Let's Mightgaine!

    I see pictures like that and think to myself, do robots have things to compensate for?
