    Are you sure they aren't double-jointed? Look at the left arm at the 2:55 mark in the video.

    Yeah, especially since i'm not a fan of her Twilight Princess design. Link though, I ironically prefer that Figma over the Skyward Sword Link. Totally not just because of the extra accessories with the DX version of thr former, haha.

    I think you might be right. That would make me extremely happy since that joint isn’t on Combattler. Nice catch!

    Huh. I would have thought Combattler DX would have double joints as well. Any idea why they didn't incorporate them on the DX?

    He's always such a cheerful little murderhobo. I grabbed it because A Link to the Past is Zelda to me, and that's the design, more-or-less.

    So the DX Voltes looks like a bigger version of SOC version?

    Currently with shipping AJ is the same as BBTS (though with BBTS it would be 50 dollars sales tax for me), so not a terrible price... I can see why he sold out that quick.

    I'm wondering with these quick sell-outs if AJ will have a big price dip. So far the Arcadia has come down, so that's been a decent deal.

    Combattler DX languished at retail and below retail prices on Amazon (US Amazon) with free shipping for well over a year. Even now it’s there for a little over $500. I wonder if Voltes will see any amount of time below retail there since he’s usually more popular than Combattler.

    Voltes. Every. Time. If it preordered out I wouldn’t be surprised if BBTS opens it again.

    In all honesty, I would love it if they released some of those. I have a Mattel Shogun Warrior version of Great Mazinger that's only missing 3 missiles.
