    Will be posting a review on YouTube once I edit the video.
    The joints on the official balljoint are very tight

    Wow, it's been so long since any activity here. By now I'm sure everyone here has heard the Armor Plus line has been canned, but then I found this on the Facebook page...

    Sure, it may not be Armor Plus, but it still says Tekkaman. If this series hasn't been abandoned, maybe there is still hope the Dark Warlords will see production someday...

    As much as I adore this line I don't see anyway we'll get the Warlords. At least we got the five Troopers along with Black Inferno.

    For that alone they're keeping a prominent place on my shelf along with their Playmates little brothers.

    I'd honestly be happy with replacement hip joints.

    Weird thing is the hip armor is silver. Hope they fix that.
    I guess the good thing about these bootlegs is you can use them for replacement parts and to display as just the armor for those that could only afford 1 when it was 1st released.
    If anyone can get in contact with the manufacturer datong, they would make a killing if they sold hip joints and helmet parts by themselves.

    Any chance this would fix the hip issues so many figures from this line has? I only own Rekka no Ryou v2 because of that but if Datong starts releasing non breaking versions of everyone, I may start collecting all of them.

    Not sure about durability but the one I bought a few months back I replaced the hip joints on my Ryo ver 1 2009 and they are still okay, but a little tight and all I did was leave it unarmored and on a tamashii act 5 stand.

    I really like the new 4" Saint Seiya line, I think doing something similar with Ronin Warriors would be a great idea. Ditch the removable armor, just give them swappable heads/removable helmets. I like the build a scene idea, but there is several things you could do with Ronin Warriors. I think just lowering the price point and complexity would make it easier to get a line with quicker releases and more characters. At this point I'm thinking of just dumping my seven and moving on anyway. Just no point for me without the Dark Warlords and the potential that the hips could go.

    (original post from 2015/Jan/05)
    After over a year of being packed up, finally got my Ronin Troopers back out on display.

    Fortunately, it seems it's still the same broken hips as before, with no new additions to the list. Wildfire'09, Strata and Torrent are still fine, as is my newly-opened Black Inferno. White Inferno still has one broken left hip, while both Halo and Hardrock have two busted hips.

    Am I the only one STILL bothered Kento/Shuu doesn't have a super-wide-grin-smile face?

    Nice display! And no, I really wanted Kento to have an obnoxious grin face. He seems almost like a different character with that gaunt chiseled face.

    Just ran upstairs and measured for those who asked: these measure ~6.25 inches unarmored.

    So did anyone here get those hip replacement joints? I'm thinking of replacing all six of mine, and if I'm reading it correctly, it'll be 120 total (at $10 per joint).

    Yes, I broke down and had all five Ronin's replaced. After moving I discovered Cye had a broken hip, so I said the heck with it and sent them all in for replacements. Only the two Inferno's have not been replaced yet.

    Also, am I the only one left still holding out hope for a Warlord release? Yes, the Armor Plus line has ended, but that doesn't mean we still can't see them in some form or another, right?
