    Less. They seem to be one of the easier bits of OOO merch to get ones hands on.

    Good to know!

    in that case, I'll wait and see how Bandai handles the Figuarts release first.

    But because of all the armor parts, Birth's Combo Change figure is more expensive than the others- 3500 yen instead of the usual 2500 for OOOs' forms.

    I have the figuarts version preordered at HLJ, but want this version just for that sick looking scorpion the parts combine into. Too bad there seems to be no cell medal container.

    Nice find there! Surely echoes on what's been going on with Japan lately. :)

    I really like art like that. That one quote that Shotaro said about Fuuto's strength as a city is also kind of fitting to the current situation.

    Love that picture as well. Kudos to the author.

    On a side note, I guess those are the only pics people have with Maisto/Fast Lane 1:12 bikes?

    Considering grabbing a couple of Kiawamis from HLJ's sale...looking at getting Blade, Garren, or Momotaros...though I'm leaning more towards Momotaros what's the general consensus of these guys?

    These are really nice little figures in a slightly bigger than 3.75" scale. The sculpt and paint are both fantastic, although the SIC redesigns aren't for everybody. Of the ones you have listed I'd say Momo is the best. Blade's shoulders are severely limited by his shoulder pads and I've had some annoying issues with Garren's hands not being designed to hold his Rouzer without having to break his thumb (I do otherwise really like Garren, though). Momotaros, on the other hand, has no hindrances to articulation beyond the natural limits of his joints, his accessories work just fine, and he has some very cool uses of translucent plastic in his sculpt. Plus, if you can find Sword Form Den-O, they go great together (and Den-O is one of the line's best).

    As someone who really dislikes the taros imagin, Momotaros is easily the best KT in the line (that I have, I think I'm behind by a couple of months again).

    Really nice toys in general (certainly worth it for their price point), but many of them have bizzare design flaws and inconcistencies that detract from the overall experiance. (Ever had a toy where it seems they went to extra effort to neuter some elements of it?)

    In other news, got Figuarts TaToBa and Ankh from HLJ. Packaged shipped off from the airport about an hour before the quake. :O

    Hibiki is still the most solid KT I've held as far as I'm concerned, though momotauros is incredibly nice. I've got all the main riders so far plus momotauros and the only one I don't highly recomend is Ryuki, and thats just because his qc is a little bit questionable.

    Blade's shoulders really aren't that badly hindered, yes they could be a lot better, but they aren't so terrible it ruins the figure. You can still raise his arms strait out front. Plus his head sculpt looks really nice.

    Before buying anything on HLJ, I think they still have a bunch available at Amiami, for cheaper prices than HLJ's even after the sale.
