    I understand the “R” part but adding the “R” to the end of the original number is how they normally do it. God Mars was GX-40 and the renewal version was GX-40R. In this case, the original was GX-33 and now we have GX-83R.
    Edit: Lol, never mind. I just zoomed in on the magazine image and it is GX-33R. @Gabriel Contreras just made a typo. Haha.

    Yeah, I was actually eyeing the original a few months back. Glad I held off. Wish they'd updated the spring-loaded, transformable arms to be more poseable, though, instead of relying on the arm swap. Not just for the sake of perfect transformation, but also so that you can have both the rocket-punch gimmick and the added poseability, instead of either/or.

    Still, this is preordered on sight.

    As far as Daimos, wouldn't it be neat if they did a DX version to complete the Robot Romance Trilogy? :)

    I have the original Leopardon but I am a sucker for the R release so I’ll most likely breakdown and get it. I have Daimos too but I’ll take a reissue R and a DX if they make ‘em.

    I actually tried to message you about that a half hour ago, but your inbox was full. :)

    Thanks man! Yeah, I’m a hoarder even for messages, lol. I think one workaround is to use any old PM we have if we had one. There used to be a way to download and archive messages so you can delete and clear space. I wish that was a thing again.

    Ah, no worries. I don't think we've communicated privately before. But yeah, I saw how interested you were in this release (as am I), so I wanted to give you a heads-up!

    Sweet! I'll post when I see it at NY or AJ. I'd like to get both in one order and I'm thinking this won't be a preorder maddness situation so it should be doable.

    I'll wait till BBTS gets it up for preorder. tend to favor them for most imports if they carry them.

    I split between amz.jpn and NY. I cannot believe Leopardon is going for over $300 that price is way out of bounds. It’s frankly worth maybe $100 to $120. This thing is outrageously priced. It’s not a large and dated.

    Hey, TR--The current price on AJ is the aftermarket price. You might already know, but the official AJ preorders sold out, and third-party sellers frequently jack up prices after that...as you say it's ridiculous. My preorder price last night, including shipping, was 20,516 Yen. It's why I PMed you before the preorders went live. AJ tends to sell out with SOCs, not crazy fast as with the valks, but fast enough.
