    Revoltechs are okay, but PR deserves MonsterArts/SRC treatment. Those are better quality and better built.

    MonsterArts, Revoltech, as long as one of those really good Japanese Collectible Figure manufacturers gets their hands on this license and makes some Highly-Articulated Kaiju and Jeagers, I'd Happily but them. (I know about the 18-Inch Gipsy Danger, but I'm still not bought on NECA's Mechas)

    I kinda hate revoltechs. They look nice and have great articulation but most of the ones I've bought have terrible balance and are too lightweight. After seeing the Figuarts Iron Man and War Machine, I'd rather they do the Jaeger's than Revoltech. Bandai should be doing these through one line or another.

    I agree. I'd buy some high end, highly poseable japanese Jaegers and Kaiju be they revoltechs, monsterarts, or whatever.

    The 18 inch Gipsy actually kinda turns me off a bit with its size. It looks fantastic. I really want it, but....it's SO big. I don't have anything else in my collection even close to that size. I don't know that I'd want something so huge as it'd just really stick out among everything else in my collection, even if I do want it so very badly due to awesomeness...

    That gipsy danger was born to fight my Matty Voltron.

    I hope you'll snap some pics of that fight. That's one thing I'd love to see.

    Done.

    Damn I wish I wasn't so tired at sdcc. I would've have spent half the day hounding them to do Pacific Rim SoC Jaegers.

    Same here, but have no real desire for Metroplex besides for the fact of Gipsy needs a sparing partner.

    Target has sold all the movie heroclix so far. They had the dark knight rises -> iron man 3 -> man of steel -> (HOPEFULLY) Pacific Rim.

    Again, check your local Game/Card stores. Thats where I found mine. Just missing Gypsy Danger to complete the set after an assist from Peaugh.

    Interesting tidbit from the NECA twitter this afternoon:

    [​IMG]

    Looking good for Cherno! :D  Also looks like pre-orders for 18" Gypsy are good enough for them to be hopeful for Knifehead who they also confirmed would light up in some fashion. Probably either the yellow veins (unlikely) or his mouth/eyes. However from the wording it appears that Knifehead is not the only "18 figure on the cards, which suggests the pre-order numbers for Gypsy are really good.

    Hoping we get Churno and Otachi out of this wave. Maybe Coyote too.

    It is weird given that theyre both heroes, but theyre both gigantic so we must! C'mon dude, Metro is huge 7 has so many little features.

    Guess I have to keep an eye out at my Target :) 
    Those must be damn good sales! unfortunately for myself, I only plan to get 18" Gipsy, b/c hes so expensive.

    I would luv an Otachi! :D

    Who wouldn't! We need more Kaiju anyways. They're outnumbered 2 to 1...

    I preordered 18" Gypsy because I think these toys need to be more articulated and bigger to be enjoyed. Doesn't mean I won't get the 7" but I will hold off for now, or until I see them in stores.
