    This renewed my interest in Daltanious. I went ahead and picked up an original GX-59 I saw on the used market, though I like this Toy version release too.
    Does anyone know where I can watch the original series? I had this series at one time, but I can't find it now for some reason. PM me if you have any ideas. Thanks.

    Second attempt, this time "New" from Amazon.com, and not a Amazon Warehouse Deal.

    I hate to break it to you but that is actually a house-cat someone stuck in an Amazon box. Your luck has to turn around sometime.

    Majin Titan IS SCARY to detach from Majin Sphinx. :confused: 

    Other than that, I love it! :D 

    God Mars is an absolutely eye-pleasing robot to look at. :) 

    The only other is two Chogokin figures I have are GX-45 Shin Manzinger which I bought years ago and just dug out of storage, and GX-88 Dairugger XV as a Christmas present for myself couple months ago. :) 

    Yeah, I caught the Soul of Chogokin bug, but I will limit myself to one Chogokin a year since they are pretty spendy. So no more until 2021. :p

    Hey guys, does anyone know of any other animal-themed gokin combiners out there apart from GoLion, Daltanious, GaoGaiGar, Daizyujin and DanCouga? Doesn't necessarily have to be SoC or Bandai.

    How about the SOC Megazord? He’s not a “classic”, per se, but he’s a beast!

    Good tip, fschuler. I love the look of that one, but the reviews I've read about the toy itself have been mixed. Kind of dampened my interest.

    Monari: If you go through the history of sentai robots (Power Rangers in the U.S.), many of them are animal-themed combiners. Link here w/ photos: Giant Robo

    Some of the sentai robots had diecast in them, mostly notably Gingaioh, which has quite a bit of metal. In fact, the DX Chogokin label is on the box (of the Japanese version, anyway).

    Not gokin, but Beast Wars has a couple of combiners (the original 90s line), and there are of course a few animal gestalts in the regular TF universe.

    Uhm....is it just me or does the SOC GX-41 Reideen figure kind of....does not good?

    I picked up the 41s set for what I thought was a steal, but after actually opening it and fiddling with it i'm wondering if maybe I was the victim.

    A number of the old CMs ones were as well. Rajiin-Oh, Sankan-Oh (sorta), or if you ever manage to find one of these rarest of birds in the wild, the Yamato Zoid's Shield Liger. Shield Liger released pretty much as Yamato was dying.

    I have a couple if anyone in interested in one. It’s solid fucking diecast without ratcheted joints so use your imagination. Still a pretty cool piece but flawed.
