    We've got a thread somewhere far back, so I am repeating myself, but Bandai 1/20 kit is very nice if you are into building model kits. If not, depending on how much you want to spend, there are 1/48 (Actic Gear), 1/35 (Max35), 1/18 (DMZ), 1/12 (Yamato).
    Hope you'll get one one day :) 

    I am in love!

    Hehe, that's Brave! Why hit someone with a hammer when you can hit them with a hammer the size of the moon!

    Dinogeist is an absolute beauty, he's a triple changer and the other two modes are just as sweet. He's a plain fun design, though not the easiest Brave to find. They turn up on Yahoo Japan from time to time and I strongly recommend him even if you're not a Brave fan, he's that good a design in my opinion.

    Thank you for the info :) 

    I have been looking more pics at Ebi Kobo and though his dino mode seems a bit strange his jet mode is also beautiful.
    If I am to use yahoo jp, I need to buy from a seller with CoD option. One seller has the option but he wants 17000yen :(

    I'd say thats expensive but I have no right to talk since I payed 12000 for one of my figures coming in which is only about 12 CM tall (Its rare but not really a collector item so to speak) :D .

    Edit: I believe there was a anime to it (I've got the theme song on my phone lol). I think the gimmick is that Gradion (the train) is a video game system that plugs into the TV. All the other auxillary units plug onto him as add-ons to the game.

    I was aware that the Japanese Bandai model kits existed for a long time, but they were inaccessible to me.

    Sounds like it. The Dino Geist is one sweet mecha. I'd get it if I didn't have so much stuff I wanted still out there :lol .

    Thanks for the info Roanstalker. yup i've seen dat train guy Gradion somewhere (he could even pass of as a TF or Brave robot).

    Btw was the line cancelled? (due to poor sales maybe) b'coz so far i've not seen or heard any type of news regarding the toyline. it just disappeared without a trace.

    I have spent that much on a Votoms toy, but knowing that there are more affordable yet unobtainable ones makes it very difficult :( 

    12cm tall rare item? You tease! :D 

    How long ago did you get yours? I really hope I could get one around 10000yen. I guess I'll wait out, but I won't forget. He'll be mine!
