    I was extremely impressed with their Cale figure, both in build and sculpt/design. Their Sekmet figure was good quality, but I had a mighty frustrating time attaching one or two of his armor pieces.

    Does any one know anything about Union Creative? I'm looking at getting Ryo that looks like the Sentinel version but the description says the company is Union Creative. It's from a legit site I've bought SHF from.

    I think Sage looks great, and seeing 2 of the guys together really makes me want these that much more. But I really can't justify the cost of building a 5 person team that would ultimately cost me around $800 (close to $1k if I got the white armor too). Even at the slow pace they're being released. But I'm loving looking at these bad boys, and will just live vicariously thru the folks who do snag these. I think Sentinel is doing an incredible job on these.

    Link? They work with Sentinel or are part of them, what you’re looking at might be the Sentinel Ryo

    I looked at some photos of boxes from Sentinal Ryo on eBay and the back has web addresses for Sentinel and Union Creative so I guess they are the same company

    Well, we are half-way through November and Anubis is still listed as an October release. No updated photos, no updated release date, nothing. I'm really starting to get worried, but thankfully I have not yet ordered Anubis simply due to the fact I didn't want a Sekhmet repeat of having my order cancelled and then needing to order again. I did order the new Kaos figure, and hopefully he will be released by the end of the month. Sure would be really awesome if both Kaos and Anubis arrived at the same time...

    Kinda surprised this hasn't been posted here yet, but the Facebook pages have revealed new photos of Anubis, and I gotta say it looks amazing! Here's just a few of the pics, more on the Facebook pages! As of this post, Anubis is still listed as a pre-order, but hopefully this is a sign that he will be released very soon...

    Nice! Thanks for sharing the images. I can't wait for Anubis! I hope the chain is easy enough to pull off and add some extensions to get a properly long chain. It seems a tad short but easily fixable.

    Shuten/Anubis actually looks surprisingly good.
    But these 3rd party warlords use the same body as the Robin Warriors, right? Meaning that they’re not scaled properly with the existing Armor Plus Robins, since they’re supposed to be a good deal taller...

    Yeah, it's the same as with the original Playmates figure line which I'm fine with. At this point I'll even accept Talpa in the same size just as long as we get him one way or another...

    Yeah, it's funny the Warlord and Warriors being the same height doesn't bother me. The thing that's off for me is that everyone is the same thickness/build. The anime portrayed the Warlords and bulkier, thicker, etc than the Warriors. I wish somehow they could have made the Warlords more stout if even the same height.

    Oh well, the quality on the Warlords is actually really good. I was quite impressed and happy to finish the set.

    The Shuten/Anubis actually looks better to me than the Anubis/Kale and Naaza/Sekhmet, but that just might be the pics.
    I would've liked the Warlords to be bigger/bulkier/thicker in addition to being taller than the Ronins as well! It doesn't look like it's as prominent with Shuten/Anubis, but the beefy armors to the other Warlords while being the same height as the Ronins make them look really stout.

    Honestly, Kento/Shin should've been a bit beefier than the rest too!
    And I'm going to say it again but the biggest fail with Bandai's Kento/Shin release was not including a super-wide-grin face as an extra part.

    THIS! I still can't believe that they didn't include a wide grinning face. I would have readily skipped the standard face and only included a grinning and yelling face.
