    I agree the shoulder joints look like they mainly go forwards and back, Im guessing the outward motion will come from a "shrug joint" housed in the chest

    It looks like that's mainly to allow his shoulder parts to rotate back slightly to show the 'wing' detailing underneath when in a idle pose. But I don't see any joints to fold the upper arms at all...

    Google translate implies that separate head is the more poseable one, and there is a transforming one inside the body.

    Also, looks like preorders go up on Monday

    Looks like Dagwon is available on HLJ...didn't check around, but I'm guessing he's at the normal retailers.

    Not unexpected, but still awesome to get confirmation. I'm expecting P-Bandai though...

    Super, or regular Minipla, are rarely available for international shipping from AJ. In the rare instance I've found that AJ will send it, DHL has refused the shipment at Customs because they contain "food" and sent it back to AJ. This is because if it's sold and shipped by AJ, they call out the "Candy" in the title of the figure, and list that whole thing on the shipping invoice. I have had occasional luck with 3rd Party sellers, fulfilled by AJ, that make it through DHL...they've all been P-Bandai items, coincidentally.

    Of course, this all applies to shipping to US, not sure if it's different for other countries.

    Ah balls, that's annoying.
    I did get the Shinkalion Dr yellow candy toys from Ami Ami with no problems though.

    Anyone find King Gosaurer looks a bit awkward in these newer pics?

    "A bit" awkward nothing, he looks fucking weird. The last two had awesome super robot proportions, but this looks weird and lanky.

    That just happened to me with the lightspeed rescue kit. I tried to argue that super Minipla doesn't have candy, but I was bluntly told they don't distinguish. I then went and checked my dancouga kit and had a small piece of gum fall out. Hopefully BBTS will carry this.

    The little piece of gum is my favorite part of Super Minipla. I was kinda mad that the single-boxers like the PB Tenryujin and Gekiryujin only came with one piece while the regular boxsets came with one per. Although as I kid I always preferred the candy toys that had chocolate.

    My gran saurer just shipped today, and I have to admit that the combined form looks somewhat strange and lanky. That said tho, I'm just happy to finally have a representation of king gosaurer without having to pay a ridiculous price for it.

    While there are probably a number of things that could be adjusted for more ideal proportions, the biggest issue is how wide-set the shoulder connections are.

    Yeh I paid for mine too. It looks great as gransaurer at least but hoping the combined mode can look better once in hand.
