Magna Stampede watches from the shadows...
Really? I was going to BIN one for about $20. (None available domestically so it's mostly shipping.) I'll save the money here and waste it on something else, then. Thanks for the word.
Sycia, what's that? Interesting looking.
Girl is a Busou Shinki,
The vehicle/ dino thingie is a Dinobreaker toy from the D.I.C.E toyline by Bandai (TakaraTomy's new rival?). Not familiar with the animated series, but the figures and transforming dinos/ vehicles are sold separately. Some of the vehicles are pretty cool, but their articulation ain't so hot.
Got another one not featured in the back of the package. Will be snapping pictures of it another day :3
It's cool to me!
damn it i want a medicom snake............. just soooo expensive
The box pics are great! haha
"I love you box.. "
I don't watch the show, but I love these Jungle Fury Power Rangers! The Bat Ranger is definitely my favorite!
And his ride!
Wow, I had one 1:32 Roadbot before, and I thought it ok, but these 1:18 ones are so awesome. I must get the other few 1:18 and 1:12 ones I want now.
Holy crap, those Big Boss pictures are awesome. I'd love to get one, but imagine they're not very cheap...
And he's been out for a while, but I just finally maanged to get this badass:
If you want it that badly, I'll sell you mine (might take me a couple weeks to dig it out of storage, though). It sounds like a robot...except for the robots. Qui-Gon and Darth Maul are awful, Obi-Wan & Anakin sound like they have cotton mouth, and the Battle Droids just sound like dudes. It would've been a sooo much cooler idea, had they used clips from the movie, rather than have no name tools rerecording them...
Dude! Those motorcycle ones are awesome!!
I love the "4.5" figures may ride on vehicles". They've been given permission!!
So the quality of the roadbots are on par with the alts/bts?
are they cheap?
No idea who that is, but he looks like a badass Destro.
That's an awesome comparison! It's Kratos from the God of War Playstation games.
On par with Alts? Hmm, the plastic quality is great, I doubt you'll be snapping anything off. The transformation schemes probably aren't up there with alts, but they're still good, not nearly as complex, but then I found some alts were so complex as to be annoying to transform anyway. But the Roadbot go back into car mode easily enough, and fit together very well. The car modes look wonderful, nicely detailed with great interiors. And I don't know about other people, but I really like the paint they use for the bodies, it's like...uh, sparkly? I'm not sure how to describe it...
They do have a few problems though, like all their elbow joints are too loose, they don't hold their massive weapons that well, although their weapons are pretty sweet, giant swords and axes and such. They also have limited posability, as they are fairly top-heavy. They also aren't partsformers as much as the 1:32 one that I have is, which is nice. But they are larger than alts, alts being 1:24 scale and these ones being 1:18.
They are decently cheap, actually, at least some of them. Agesthreeandup has a few 1:18s for less than $20, and BBTS has some 1:18s for $20, and they both have a few 1:32s for $10 or less. I'd really like to find someplace that still has the 1:12 ones for reasonable prices though.
Thanks for the info!
They have 1:12???
I wonder if nail polish or whatever might tighten their joints.. loose joints scare me
Thanks to a friend in Indiana, I got a nice statue for really cheap. I don't buy busts often, but when I do, it's usually of something I really love:
Wow! Very nice!
No, not that badly now, but thanks. I assumed the voice clips were taken from the movies. Bummer.
Is that a custom Sigma Six Storm Shadow, or did they actually release it, it looks amazing I want one!
