    I also got one face for the combined mode too. Wasnt sure if normal or not.

    LOVE these guys alot, even with some of the qc issues for individual bot or wrong combined mode hand (getting fixes from suppliers), the combined mode is stable (unlike the OS version) and they all look great with a few bot head options i like.

    My Daban 9902 has arrived in Brazil. I made these photos to buy his 3 versions, which I happen to have now.

    I decided to buy 9902 and 9903 only, Long Haul and Hook to replace the NBK. It would only be Lonh Haul but the fittings between the 2 to NBK modified in its version. To form the legs, it is necessary to roughen / sand the notches (knees) on the Long Haul. The size and shape are the same but are thicker making it difficult to fit. That was nothing to complain about. I imagined he would have ratchet joints on LH's legs forward / backward, but he has them sideways. But it's super stiff and the joints don't compromise. Now I wait for 9903 which is in Brazilian customs.

    Full color compatibility with NBK
    Full size compatibility
    Amazing how NBK made a great remold of the GT mold.

    I wouldn't diss NBK - the only real complaint I have with mine is I'd prefer a 3D printed block to secure the crotch so I could uncombine the thing at will - as it is to prevent harm it's stuck in combined mode. So I'll likely buy the Daban ones to use as individual robots before to long. I'll likely start with Long Haul and Hook as I don't have the GT versions of either of those two yet.

    I'm sure there's no actual seated areas in these, but do any of the vehicles *look* about an appropriate size for a 1:48-ish o-scale figure (MP-10 Spike's a close fit) to operate? Ladders and cockpits about the right size?

    Hello guys! And my long awaited Daban 9903 has arrived and now I can say that I am pleased with this green monster! If the knee connections on the 9902 needed attention, the arms needed nothing. The fit was perfect!

    The weight difference between NBK's Hook / Long Haul duo for Daban is incredible. The Daban seem to be so heavy metal.

    From break, I changed the heads of the Devas. The original / Daban Head is very beautiful but it doesn't have the lights in the eyes so I'll leave NBK really.

    Note: I removed the cabin of the NBK truck because it was too bad. It left the cabin / head of the Devas like that of the truck and that other side was just the crane support.

    Very happy here!

    Thanks I'm not very literate with Mandarin despite being Chinese. I found out its not really that great of a deal after all.
