    I think the fact that it's Kotobukiya, not Bandai, making these model kits says it all really. Why would Bandai put tons of money into making 300+ dollar SoCs when they can't even be bothered to get the rights to make cheaper model kits, even for the sake of testing the waters?

    Good Smile Company.

    Koto did the D-Style ones awhile back.

    Maybe they will once they run the ggg super minipla train dry. Super minipla has done a few 'out there' choices.even older sentai robos that no one thought they would do. Its a possibility.

    It literally says Kotobukiya on J-Decker's and Great Exkaiser's tags. Try reading.

    Anyone got advice on pricing for DX Goldran toys at this point? Looking to sell, and to get a fair price for myself as well as the buyers. I've got Goldran, Sorakage, Leon Kaiser, and Advenger, all in nice shape. Sold DX Silverion already. I've had some of these on Ebay for a bit, but may be overpricing. What I put them up for was based on things selling within the past 6 months. Thanks for any advice!

    This is what I bought some of my Goldran toys for used. Advenger I bought new so he was a bit more.

    Note that Leonkaiser is missing his tail so that impacted the cost.

    Also note that if you want to sell me a tail I’ll buy it for 20 XD

    That is helpful, though these are complete toys. I've priced them very similarly to others that have sold recently, but apparently the market is very small.

    I thought we were talking about Bakuryu-Oh and his buddy. My bad.

    As super robot type heroes go who would be a worthy successor to the king of braves for the next generation?

    That's where I am too. After getting the Minipla versions of GaoGaiGar and Super Sentai Liveman, I just don't feel the itch for model kits anymore. It's nice to have them in my collection as there's no way I could afford SoC or original DX toys at the time. But the Minipla is just...so underwhelming. It's these times when I realize I value heavy plastic and gokin over hyper articulation and model plastic.

    More “very specific things I’ve made for my super robots”

    I just opened my Draias, and was really bummed to find out the shield has nowhere to go.

    So I fixed it.

    As always, any parts I make are free to people on the thread provided they pay for the minimum amount of shipping

    Since it connects via 5mm it can just neatly store on the shield in the other two modes.

    Anyone have the old DX and the D-Style King J-Der? I wanted to know if maybe the head of the D-style is more proportionate to the DX body so I could try looking into modding it.

    I'll leave here some of the scans portraying some of the new bots from the Vol.1 of the Hakaiou manga

    If I've asked before I'm sorry, anyone have the Wave 3 Brave kits from Kabaya? I think the set was Fire Duke , Might Kaiser and Fighbird.

    Silhouette on the left is too indistinct to really tell if there's any difference, but that's just Genesic. The one on the right is Betterman Nebula, Lamia's most commonly used Betterman form.
