So far so good everything seems to work fine on mine
..And, surprise! Got my replacement Earth Liner today too.
GSC also tightened the ankles, so GX stands no problem fully combined, and even tightened up the abdomen connection tab.
It's finally here
Yeah it's a great feeling for all of us fellow Brave brothers on this thread.
These past few years have been awesome for Brave fans in general. Articulated modern renditions of our fave Yuusha warriors which was unthinkable wayback then.
"We deeply apologize for any inconvenience caused and hope for your understanding in this matter."
Yeah, right. For some effing reason they couldn't send the parts to me via an air parcel or something so they decided on using UPS without consulting me and the courier showed up with a bill for taxes and their service fee that's higher than my daily earnings. Fun! I'm tempted to write to their customer service about that but I'm afraid they're just gonna tell me that import fees are the customer's responsibility.
Got mine yesterday, nice little surprise.
My current Bandai SMP (mostly Brave) collection:
Unfortunately 99% of this is out of my price range. Some CHUG-styled Brave figures would be epic, though. Many would fit right in with the JG1 cast, or even in a Cybertronian lineup.
Both my Da Garn replacement parts and Victory Saber arrived unannounced
Unfortunately not likely to happen other than some colour references in certain repaints we've gotten. Braves doesnt belong to Takara beyond the original toy molds and anything we've got has been very collector focused. Cheapest is the model kits and even those are pretty expensive for their size.
Still no chocho part for me

I'll admit it took me a minute to get a toolbox for GGG.
Might consider this as an upgrade to my current tool box which I'm storing all my tools for fixing or customizing my TFs.
Nice to see some love for the Brave series. Still don't have the Goodsmile Dagarn-X but have the vintage. I like his unique chest design and of the few who has a X-shape wings.
Received the chocho
I like the replacement part package can fit nicely in the original box lol
Today I received a call from the customs office about my chocho replacement.
Those ugly bastards are absolute idiots or (more probably) they're once again trying to find a way to steal money from me.
Otherwise why do they want me to send them a file with the content and value of the shipment when it's clearly stated on the shipping label? They even sent me a copy of the label...
They just think it's wrong that adults play with action figures
You can prove them wrong as the invoice hard copy is there as proof. The invoice is together with the shipping airway bill.
My invoice had the parts listed as "1 PCS REPLACEMENT" two times, 100 yen each. That's total bullcrap but unfortunately last year's changes in EU's legislation oblige the customs to check and demand taxes from every single incoming package. Non postal services such as UPS then use that to rip people off further with unreasonable service fees. I've had to pay (converted) 35 USD or 33 EUR for the absolute luxury of receiving these free replacements that I shouldn't have even needed in the first place, damnit.
Fingers crossed for some Brave stuff
