    I want an even bigger sword blade. We need something for full on Obari-pose goodness.

    Might have to get this too. I got the ratchet upgrades which are great, but the rest of his joints still kinda suck.

    Sounds good to me, don't really need the blade though.

    This. Or at least include some of it in another release. Can't hate KFC though... they do so much good.

    Has there been a sword handle upgrade? As the standard one is rubbish!

    I'm getting this if my Simba ever ships from PC. I just want to know why they don't keep their numbers aligned with the Japanese MP numbers.

    How does this stuff line-up with the other joint kit?

    Does not look like they have the same joints as the ones we are selling, so both should include completely different sets.

    From left to right:

    Hip disk, hip ratchet tab (my guess anyways, without opening mine up), upper elbow, shoulder, lower elbow.

    I bought the other kit that jus replaced the knee and lower elbows. This might be worth it if it improved the shoulders and upper elbows. I'll be keeping my eye on this.

    Great! Good to know. I'd love to see the poseability after everything is put together.

    I'm confused about what exactly these are needed for? Is it strictly for enhancing combination with simba?
