    great pics. If there's one thing I would like the Gum Kabaya kits to have is real faces with contours, not crappy face sticker which give out the flat, rather uninspiring look on these robots.

    They do have real faces with contours.

    the sticker is just to make the face more visible, and make the eyes colored.

    Yup. You could if you have a steady enough hand paint the faces yourself, though my usual trick is to apply the stickers and use a blunted / rounded edge to gently smooth them on and show up the contours underneath.

    Bought them when i them in shops here in japan yesterday. At only 900¥ for the set, I think it's pretty worth it.

    Who's selling just the three? I want them but I don't want a whole case with extras - I think I'll get stuck with the odd spares.

    As a Transformers fan you almost learn something new every day. I was not aware these three could actually do this. The real guys must be an impressive sight.

    These are neat kits. I have never delved into Kabaya, and I proably won't now, but these are neat kits none the less.

    Oh yes, the final combination is HUGE. I've got Brave versions of Sonic Bomber and Dai Atlas along with an original Road Fire. The final combined mode is unbelievably long:

    One with an Animated Soundwave for a size reference:

    That's not a good deal at all. Capturedprey.com has them much cheaper.

    $10 each is a good deal i think only like what 5$ more then captured pray ? And you dont have to wait for captured pray to get their pre orders filled, this person has them in hand and ready to ship. Now if they were crappy quality like the KO kabayas with the rubery plastic then no not a good deal lol.

    I'm glad I pre-ordered this. It really does look great after all. I forgot that they can combine, and it looks awesome. I love model kits, and even candy toys. I'll be getting a box of them from Japan (because it's pretty inexpensive for me to do so, since the shipping to here is quite reasonable, and the JPY-NZD exchange rate is pretty good), so I'll have spares if anyone wants them. I think they're usually a box of 10.

    Finally put mine together. Pretty neat but do wish that the stickers were a little smaller. Most of the stickers spill out a little over the edges of the parts they are supposed to cover.

    Not quite liking the stickered faces...may just peel them off...

    Overall, money well spent, considering that it cost only 900Yen which comes up to about USD11 for the set of 3.
