    Though I never did like the weird square pattern in the grill.

    Great PhotoChopping! I like your revised rendition, too! I'd definitely bite if this was the final size/shape.

    Yes, more chunk! Great folk are getting a screen style ginrai, but I’d love us to get a more directly toy inspired figure.

    I don’t see any reason why a Western version couldn’t be retooled.

    But then I didn’t see any reason why they couldn’t have done Doubledealer and toy Doubleclouder repaints of Vasili, either…

    My childhood best friend had one. One of the toys that impressed me the most. I would also prefer a more chunky version. I like the Fanshobby proportions for example, but the fanshobby line are always a bit too stylized for my taste at the time.

    Not to get to off-topic, but seeing that (model from a while back, if I'm remembering correctly), I'm still hoping we see the Banana Force toy at some point soon.

    DX9 does a comic recolor with alternate head sculpt and I won't be able to resist throwing my bank account info at them.
