I hope they'll follow with Gaofighgar and the Genesic.
So this has been moved to Pose+ Metal instead of it originally being under Pose+ Style. I wonder if there were any changes made to it.
Just received the replacement hand from pose+. A quick check but no fingers popping out.
From what I have read, Pose+ initial intention was to produce GGGG but they have issues acquiring the necessary license, and had to settle for a GGG instead.
I hope they make a GGGG a combining version with their level of engineering could be masterful. I'm quite close to dropping $500 on Sentinel's GGGG, but if Pose+ made one it would probably be similar in price and it transforms!
Maybe it's because Sentinel is already making one...let's hope they can sort out licensing in the future.
yeah im pretty sure it had something to do with Hobby Japan if I remember correctly and they'll probably keep the license until they release King J-Der if it's going to be branded under GGG Final. Looking at it now I can probably see why Amakuni's/Sentinel's GGGG was as tall as it is IF they're gonna make King J-Der to scale alongside it.
If that was the case, that sucks. As much as the Amakuni version looks really nice, it's non-combining feature is a big letdown.
Edit: better scans
Ugh... that price...
That price is insulting, and the fact that it's only as big as the SOC makes it laughable. I dare somebody to tell me that the extra detailing and slightly better articulation warrants doubling the price of the SOC.

Lower production numbers is likely the bigger factor.
More detailing and articulation are not negligable, and probably makes the figure cost 20-50% more on development and tooling alone. But when you also add on the fact that this company is new, with nowhere near the market penetration of Bandai, their production numbers are a lot lower, so development costs need be recouped over a much smaller run.
Economics of scale.
It looks absolutely crazy but damn, that price...
Aslo the inevitable upgrades will make the whole thing about 100 000 yens.
Nice to see a combining GGG with double-jointed knees to give a deep knee bend. Looks cool, but I'll just stick to the SOC.
It does look great, and I do like Gaogaigar, but I've had so many Gaogaigar toys over the years that it's not the most exciting subject to me now. The price isn't too much higher than what I would have expected from Pose+, but I'm probably not spending that money unless there's something about it that compels me to do so after I find out everything there is to know about it.
Have to wait and see how it comes out with places listing it and shipping. I am tempted since I'll have the SoC in Star GGG mode with the reissue backpack coming.
