    Yes, all exclusives—but that usually means they’re available elsewhere outside of Japan. Robot Kingdom (Hong Kong) and BBTS (US) are great to check.

    Anyone else notice they changed the layout of the legs to make it taller at the expense of smaller feet?

    So our power up gets a power up? lol

    I have a feeling I better go ahead and pick this set up cuz I doubt they will re-release it in hero colors too. Looks like they tried to vary the colors just enough so it works with VMax and ShadowMax.
    Should also look pretty good on my DA-47 Tri-Digger

    I have my own tracking checklist, so when one is skipped, I notice. ;)

    We can also see in this pic that the sword splits in half, which I hadn't realized.

    On another note, I'm now very glad I cancelled my regular Legion Ripper order. That dark version is just wonderful.

    I do hope we get another set like DA-85 to work on this configuration. Those extended legs look pretty legit front on. Would be pretty awesome if all these convoy upgrades eventually beef him up to Gigantor or DA-80 size.

    DA-88 is basically a less substantial form of DA-07 (Cosmo Battles v2)... It just feels like it lacks enough main-body parts to be on its own...

    I guess it is more like the Chronicles Scepter, but for V-Max/Shadow...

    Small wings or wheels would have fleshed this out more...

    The more power-ups they release, the more VMax looks like Cybertron Optimus Prime! I think the DA-85 cannons could be configured in a similar way to the below pic and have some massive under arm Gatling cannons.

    Aah, totally didn't think of BBTS; will have to keep an eye on them! I've ordered from there before, and they've been pretty good

    I'll gladly be corrected if I'm wrong, but it seems like everything but the Diabattles V2 is complete.

    oh right, that is the add on for big powered, I see the canopy color now. there seems to be a missing raid chamber for one of the powered suits too, and at least battles can be a full mech without wings, so yeah even better than I originally thought.

    Yup, missing a set of cannons for the big powered legs as well but it's all usable stuff. Might see if I can find a set of wings to complete the diabattles, then I'll have one regular and one Cosmo

    Type E didn't come with a chamber, so that's complete too

    Man I'm a total sucker for bubble turrets and bubble canopy type things. It's one of the reasons I love Battle Buffalo so much. Definitely stolked to get that DA-88!
