    Wrath and Onyx look fantastic.

    Onyx is a must for me. On the fence about Wrath.

    When you're say SHF Den-O forms, you're referring to the "current" figures yes? Because "sword form", "ax form" etc aren't out yes?

    I would rate HasTak higher if not for some of the QC problem me and my friends have encountered. Sometimes I wish they would do things right the "first time" like Bandai.

    I think this has been debunked by other Bandai toylines such as the Saint Seiya line.

    I like the bee because i find the suit not overly complex! LOL!

    I thought you had watched Kabuto because you know about the Bee? LOL!

    I was thinking along the same lines too because of the modifications done to the "regular" release of New Den-O. Bandai will er, play "cheat" (in a nice way) to produce the figuare again.

    Oh yeah, how did I forget about the Saint Seiya line!? I was told about it quite some time back!

    Double confirmation on the star system! :D 

    Yup, glad you like him! What I like about this line is how they balanced articulation with sculpt! I haven't picked him up yet but I am so impressed by the other figures that I got!

    What does FML means, dude? Anyway, I get what you mean...I told myself I will be focusing on Kuuga and the original riders but picked up Agito and G3X! LOL!

    ZeroEdge - Thanks for the pixs! I don't know if I should continue with the Figma riders...I like my Ryuki but I feel he's kinda rubbery and living in Asia, I'm wary that the humid climate will "damage" the toy.

    People still buy those? I...guess I had an Ultraman or two back then. But to get them now seems so...counter-evolutionary.

    Seeing as kaiju don't get the deluxe treatment very often and a line like Ultra-Act can only do so much at a time... hell yeah people still buy vinyls. It's that or nothing if you want a figure larger than two inches.

    Very OT but if the Rurouni Kenshin franchise ever got the super articulated figure treatment, who'd be up for the job? Revoltech, Figma or Figuarts? I think Figma pulls off Anime characters a lot better than the other two.

    He said "SH," not "SHF." Souchaku Henshin. All of Den-O's forms (except Cho Climax, due to its not existing yet) got SH releases.

    "Fuck my life."

    Also, get Gills. You can't only have two-thirds of the Agito trinity.

    Whoever does it, I hope they go off of the upcoming live-action Kenshin. That way I can get Kenshin, slap on some yellow paint, and pretend it's Ryotaro possessed by Kintaros.

    Movie RK...I'll pass. Unless the movie becomes a sleeper hit or something (doubtful).

    He's talking about the Souchaku Henshin Den-O figures, which are very similar to shf's due to being at the tail end of SH releases. Both them and the kiva figures have similar articulation and scale, but have large pieces of diecast and removable armor.

    edit: beaten to it

    Hope the Unkh hand isn't too small. I'd love to have one of those.

    I'd imagine that it is too small, given that it's ment for a small child to wear. The one I have commissioned is going to be scale to one used on screen, meaning that I should be able to wear it.

    Not to kill your excitement, but I could have sworn reading those were exclusives somewhere.

    I kinda want to base them on the movie after you mentioning that. But honestly, I see whoever picks them up going with the anime/manga designs, probably because it'd just be easier to do.

    How does this licensing thing work anyway because if I recall, when the 2nd Evangelion movie came out, both Figma and Revoltech had EVA figures out. I remember being torn between getting a Figma Mari or a Revoltech one.

    I'm guessing the Rebuild license may have been timed based. Kaiyodo bought the license for X amount of months and then Bandai grabbed it after that.

    Not these. That's a retailer solicitation, to show off the products for them to order.

    I think the exclusive sets are upgrades on these. The Gamel I remember from the set with Mezool, for example, had much less black and was definitely closer to his complete appearance in the show.

    EDIT: Tamashii Web for EX versions of Gamel and Mezool, naturally. http://p-bandai.jp/b-boys-shop/item-1000008225/?TOP_B I can't find the Cazali, Uva, and Ankh set right now.

    Haha, BBTS is even offering the exclusive versions! http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=BAN13588&mode=retail

    Oh, I see. Good to have that cleared up.
