    Just tried your hairdrier method. Super easy and the hands now look super clean, not a single gray/powdery trace left. Thank you again!

    Heads Up!!

    Seems some Japanese retailers are getting restock of some SoC’s slated for release later this month, so if anyone is looking anyone of one of these, here’s your opportunity!
    Also seems that Golion will also be restocked but AmiAmi hasn’t put it up for preorder, so those on the eastern hemisphere that are still looking for one be on the look out tomorrow!

    Ah, so I guess everybody knows we're getting SOC GaoFighGar then? SUPER COOL!

    ...Even if I hardly have the space or money for him. In fact, I'd be more content with a reissue of Super Robot Chogokin GFG just because I love the design of him. (In fact, out of all the GGGs, I kinda like GFG the most? Is that weird to say?)

    There is a certain appeal to GFG's "real robot" aesthetics, ditching the obvious train shoulders and ostentatious lion head. Gaofar and Liner Gao II sharing a colour palette and similar geometry also help make the combined form more cohesive looking than the original GGG.

    Got my Getter-Arc today. Shipped in a box that was a bit too small, and caused it to bulge. But I noticed the SoC box itself was a much heavier cardboard than I normally see with SoC. Not as heavy as say Hasbro or TT, but certainly far heavier than in other releases.

    If I had the extra cash I totally would, that thing is at the top of my want list. Been planing on saving the cash up after Christmas and buying it at some point or another.

    It did get mentioned here, during the last Tamashii event, just not as much attention as some other reveals. I own two of the MonsterArts versions and am still hype to see more.

    Oh shoot! I didn't even know this was a thing! :eek: 

    Where is that video coming from, anyway?

    UPDATE: Hey, any chance we can get an SOC God Gravion at some point in the future? I love how the Metamor-Force Gravions from Sentinel look, but I hardly have the asking price for any of them...

    Big O in the Top 21? That's kinda surprising. I thought The Big O was super niche in Japan.

    I take it the alternate heads are toy/anime-accurate heads?

    And the lower leg pieces are to give him chonkier legs like the original SOC Gaiking? Also holy crap, that belly blade is huge.
