    Still waiting patiently for these. If we get Blue Jet and Super Car Robo I will be ecstatic.

    Considering they actually gave a review copy of Tough Trailer out, I'd expect he'll be next, whenever they get around to returning to this toy line.

    At least they aren’t putting out anymore preorders for this line that continually get delayed like they do with a lot of their other products.

    Although I guess it’s not much different. Either way we still don’t know when anything’s going to be released, if anything further is released at all.

    They never even released Tough Trailer?? then why the review copy lol. Looks like Pro Truck Racer will have to wait even longer.
    Reminds me of the ES Gokin toys, chogokin-style SD robots, they're quite good I have the Baikanfu and Gaiking the Great. they're also produced by Action Toys, and yes, the delays between those releases were extremely bad, sometimes a year or more passes between releases. But the silver lining? ES Gokins started in 2009, and they're still being released a decade later, hopefully they can do the same for Machine Robo

    I cannot sing the praises of that figure enough. It's literally one of the my favorite figures of all time, and makes me dream of a whole line at that level of quality. The weight and feel of it, the look, that bonus face, the combination of nostalgia and modern toy fun, the ruggedness of it. It's seriously up there with (and maybe beyond some of them) any TT MP I own for my money. It just captures everything I love about CyKill (I know it's Bike Robo but... for me he's CyKill and that bonus face is amaaaazing and hilarious lol. I hope if they do Eagle in the DX format they can still get away with a similar face for him too.) Seriously though, the difference/step up in quality in the DX vs the normal line is astounding.

    If it were any line but GoBots, I would've washed my hands of Action Toys long ago.

    Hey, I just found this thread and... *Reads through the 236 pages of comments*

    So... Should I even ask if it is worth it to buy the Train Robo? I have a lot of the older Machine Robos from long ago and missed out on the Space Shuttle and Blackbird which I would have liked. See the Train in stock and was about to get it after asking in this thread. But maybe I shouldn't after the comments I read here about the line and figures. As I shouldn't support them if they are not producing figures to support the fan base.

    I think Train (Steam) Robo is one of the best.

    As for buying any figure in Action Toys,who's stopping you anyway? Go ahead..the only thing that's stopping the toys...is the makers THEMSELVES! Their release schedule is that of a regular normie which is something I thought 3rd parties are AVOIDING. Yeah,official toy companies might give you the cold shoulder but I thought 3rd parties were more better than the actual official companies. Well,Action Toys proved us wrong time and time again.

    Get the toys however you like. They're just not gonna listen at this point in time.

    Cool, thanks for your good point. I ordered one since it looks really good and an upgrade to my original. Sorry to read how Action Toys seems to be dragging their feet on these.

    Do these get reissues?

    I got rod drill a while back but slept on the rest of the line. They seem to be sold out everywhere.
