    It's a translation convention issue.

    "Dygenguar" is probably the most accurate, because as noted above, it's supposed to be short for "Dynamic General Guardian".

    "Daizengar" is the phonetic Japanese transliteration, based purely on the romanization convention for the characters involved. "Z" specifically because the Japanese language doesn't recognize the soft "G" sound of "General" (if you've ever watched GaoGaigar, you'd recognize the constant pronunciation of "energy" with a hard "G"), so "Z" or "Zh" substitutes.

    It's not really hard to figure out what the clips of Thrudgelmir and Dyzengar "combining" reminds one of considering the Super Robot Wars OG: The Inspector was a passion project directed by Masami Obari. Guys been with TF since Day Of The Primitives and has forever left a mark on the giant robot genre as a whole beyond it.

    Wow, that is a fantastic reuse of the mold. A perfect opponent for Bludgeon.

    Oh yeah, a new character from a mould that I was interested into so is not out of scale.

    Must buy.

    Only issue I\'m seeing is the tiny sword.
    Other than that, he truly is the Sword that Cleaves Evil.

    I'm probably going to sell the originals molds for the exclusives. Never thought I would want these more. Red Stray better be somewhere in the pipeline to complete the trio.

    Yeah these redecos are so better than the originals. Maybe have a red one from after beta so they can use all three molds. It’d be a nice companion to the asterisk kultur.

    I mix up which one is stray and beta all the time. I meant the one with the big ol' gun.

    Based off previous experience, does anyone think A3U will sell this on their website?

    Ahh I see. Don’t blame you. Stray is drift and after beta is deadlock. It’s pretty confusing.

    Yes, and also will be available in the shop (I am 99.99% sure of it since I've seen all of their other convention exclusives in the shop whenever I visit (at least twice in the past two weeks)) in a couple of weeks' time.

    FUCK YEAH!!!!! I’d be keen for any kind of Gurren Laganna figure that actually combines. Soul of chogokin should also do one. And a genesic Gao Gai Gar.
