    Because I had to... I just hit 200 Instagram followers... And, I needed something special for my 100th Instagram post. This seemed very "apropos"...

    That dark ripper looks pretty nice... Now I'm not sure which to get (maybe both LMAO)

    Actually in looking at it, I think the scheme matches DA-75 and 76, which I have. So I'll probably have to get that one!

    Now I'm wondering if they'll release a dark Walder suit like DA-82
    (makes me wish I had a DA-26 or two...)

    Obviously will have to get the gun set to go with DA-65 and DA-85 :p

    88 is a peculiar release. I wonder if that bulb could fit on Battle Buffalo

    That first da-88 image got me excited thinking it was a trivers compatible buffalo. Looks like an unofficial verse riser unit in terms of functionality. It also does look very snazzy combined with convoy. But man, 10k yen for a couple of guns is a big ask.

    Dark ripper looks awesome. Too bad convoy + greater + gv and whatever potential upgrades convoy gets in the future are already ripping me a new one.

    I’m beside myself over this news!! These sets are freakin awesome!

    I think I may have to do what I did with the Soldier Type releases. Two dark and one light. Makes a good trio and the dark scheme is definitely the best. :D

    I think it will be interchangeable with the bullet cores of DA-65, in terms of connectors and size.

    They are pretty cool, I must admit :p 

    I am interested in seeing what combinations can be done with the Rippers. I really like them, so would be happy to purchase more than 1, if there was a good reason...

    Also, did anyone notice that there's another drone sword in the parts picture of 88?

    I guess we'll be dual wielding :p

    When I saw frog, it did make me think of the nickname for the Elemental Suits from B-Tech, Toads. I wonder if the Warruders would honor a Batchal.

    I have two of the first Rippers on pre-order and will happily order two of the dark version as well. That looks amazing.

    The Powered Greater weapon pack has me excited as well. The long cannons and bulb cockpit really sell it for me.

    Wasn't expecting another three releases this month after getting the same last month.
    At this rate they'll be announcing DA-100 in no time. :eek: 

    Ripper looks better in those colours to me, still don't like the head but it's not as prominent now.
    The weapons pack is cool, will have to get one of those.

    All of these are great, but that upgrade/weapons unit is awesome! So many new ways to change up sets.

    I just wish you could change V-Max's head with a less modern "Prime-like" one.

    I think all 3 of these are TTMall exclusives... If so, I'm surprised, as I think the weapons set has new parts...

    And, with DA-86 skipped, we'll see another set very soon. (TTMall exclusives frequently outpaces normal releases...)

    Are these new sets TTMall exclusives? I really want to get the Dark Ripper (at least), but I'm worried that I wont be able to find somewhere that I can get one from..

    Oh crap, they are.. doh!!

    This may be a prelude to the "VERS" version of Battle Buffalo which would incorporate bullet cores rather than a powered suit.
