    Regarding distribution i haven't read anything definitive as of yet. They're very likely (almost assuredly) going to be sold in Japan.
    The diorama pieces are the actual packaging for the Pocket Titan mechs. I'm glad whomever decided to utilize / modify the Rihio molds decided to include a poseable pilot with these sets. The pilot along with the diorama really make it worth picking up if they are sold in North American brick and mortar stores.

    Is that SAS suit copies from something or a genuinely original design ?
    Kinda looks a bit like a Zaku Gundam.

    So I just got my unboxed set of 4 Waruder suits from HZJ on eBay today, I was looking them over when my 5 year old wanted to "check them out", about 30 seconds later one of the ball joints in the worm tail was snapped off, apparently the tails don't make good levers when trying to pry out the worm pods from the suits.

    Hey it's only 10 bucks but I enjoy a challenge, here's a few pictures showing how I fixed it:

    Examining the damage.
    IMG_20191123_154024760.jpg
    Found a metal nail that was small enough to use as a brace internally bridging the two broken pieces like a bone.
    IMG_20191123_154321627.jpg
    Find a drill bit that matches the size of the nail.
    IMG_20191123_154330782.jpg
    Carefully drill out a hole in the center of each piece.
    IMG_20191123_160453538.jpg
    Test fit the nail in the holes to make sure you've got it cut to the right length.
    IMG_20191123_161030204.jpg

    Apply glue to the holes, slide the nail in one piece and fit the pieces together and hold steady pressure waiting for your glue's set time.
    IMG_20191123_161635339.jpg
    Once your glue has set and cured try it out and see if it worked.

    Will be putting up pics and maybe a review of the MFT Waruder Suits tomorrow if I get the time.

    so I really like this, 2 questions

    1. Are these larger figures
    2. Do we think they will come in SAT/Police flavor?

    I've got some more shots of my Warudaraider Set posted in the Official Diaclone Reboot thread, compatibility with MFT Waruder Suits seems to be pretty much perfect!

    That looks like it stepped out of a Voltron: Legendary Defender episode ( a good thing).

    I’m kinda new too so when I discovered these modes can be done last weekend, it blew my mind.

    Agreed whole heartedly. These things look like the perfect city building material. I'm curious how they scale with the original Rihio source figures. Anyone got a reference pic?

    FINALLY! I can stop asking about it now. This looks awesome. I am all for having some no-frills, generic humanoid mecha for my Dianaughts. I'm a little surprised it isn't in black, but I'm cool with khaki. I'll need a few of these.

    That missile effect looks pretty radical, a little paint would help it pop. The effects are my favorite part of these sets.

    Am I the only one that thinks the pocket titans look cheap and crappy? It seems like this thread has got completely derailed by them.

    I'm actually looking at them and wondering if maybe by clipping out the control column you could have enough space to get a Titan/Prime Master in their cockpits?

    They do look like they are lacking. I might pick one up to check it out but yeah, they do look like cheap ko's which is ironic with this thread
