    Nice! I do like King Art's aesthetics and making it larger with many more ratchet joints is very enticing to me. The battle damage parts were pretty cool looking on the official KA one, but sometimes you can't have everything.

    Quality is pretty good. No QC issues on mine. Hips, knees & ankle joints are ratcheted.
    I love the colors on this figure, especially the metallic blues and reds.

    I saw someone mention a reissue of the SOC Golion early next year, but I don't see any listings for it. Anyone have info regarding this possibility?

    It was just an unfounded rumor based on a Photoshopped image, was what I last read.

    Ok. Thanks for the info. I imagine a reissue will happen again, as it seems to be a good seller. I held off on the initial release. It ended up selling out after a little while. The reissue orders instantly sold out (must have been rather limited). I just don't want to pay aftermarket prices for it.

    Score! I’ve been hunting for one of these for a while now (MegaHouse Robominal Panda-Z). They typically go for a fair bit on eBay (more than I’m willing to pay) but I just happened to stumble upon this one on Mercari for a very reasonable price. He’s cute...he’s fun...he’s deceptively heavy...and he has dual spring-loaded rocket punches, a missile-firing gut and a Mazinger-like Scrander.

    I'm surprised they haven't done a black repaint or other kinds of recolor nonsense. Really surprised someone hasn't had the obvious idea of Hello Kitty GoLion.

    Hi guys, I am selling some Hi-Metal L-Gaim and Dougram figures on eBay. I know this is not the right thread, but I know someone will notice it more here since it is a transformers forum. These are the best deals on eBay for each figure.

    Does anyone know whether SOC ever plans on reissuing their Buzz Lightyear figure?

    Thanks.

    Yea. I was amazed when I discovered it. I bought two. I wouldn't have even bought 1 at its original retail price. This weekend I'm going to put them on display with the SOC Yamato.

    I also picked up a Daltanious reissue and have it displayed with SOC Golion and Dairugger. The gold chrome on the lion legs is just great and puts it over the top.

    I would LOVE to buy my girls a Hello Kitty Voltron. Sanrio seems happy to lend their license to just about any product so I’m sure if Bandai hit them up they’d be all for it. Bandai already makes chogokin Hello Kitty toys, even mashups with Mazinger and Gundam. They’re damn good toys too, my daughters love them.

    I got mine yesterday but the Amazon driver completely screwed up and left it at the wrong address. I was able to retrieve but I am reporting it as MIA and going to make them give me a 2nd one. I'd never do that to a small retailer or a personal sale between collector's but Amazon over the years has screwed me more than a few times, more than happy to screw them back and get a killer deal out of it.

    Also the driver is an jerk for not following the very clear delivery instructions left on my Amazon account. This was so far from not the right location I have no idea how they ended up where they did.

    They almost always appeared in groups so I was thinking of displaying them both with the Yamato. We will see how it shakes out. :)
