well, got my zombot 3 today. Good, but not as good as I thought.
I had the same reaction.
Well, Zambot is quite an old mold though
That it is. I just don't understand why this (and other SOCs) have this huge amount of backward motion in the thighs and almost zero forward motion. That's my biggest problem. That one thing could make this a much more poseable fun figure.
I know. My first 3 SOC figures are 59 60 61. I think I was spoiled, LOL.
You did watched the various online video reviews of SOC Zambot prior to purchasing him, right?
I did and knew about the thigh limitations. Due to a mistake-order, I got it anyway. I thought I would be thoroughly disappointed, but turned out I actually liked and appreciated it more once in hand despite the limitation.
It was weird.
Posing it sucks most of the time, but it actually had more playability than my Black Reideen and Black Combattler.
Yeah I did. I knew what I was getting into. I like my zambot 3 plenty! I just don't understand why they would make it that way. Same with Daioja, tho not as bad. Just weird.
Love the look and the weapons and the weight.
A few months ago I was tempted by zambot as a first SOC purchase because of availability and fair pricing (plus I like the look of it) however I went for daioja and godsigma first and feel I have been a bit spoiled also. Zambot looks interesting but his poses look very static.
Danguard ace looks really good for poses although his transformation is a bit dull compared to daioja, I might get danguard while hoping for a reissue of godmars......
REVIEW: Super Robot Chogokin Mazinkaiser
SRC Mazinkaiser 1 by Three Nerds in a Basement
SRC Mazinkaiser 2 by Three Nerds in a Basement
Beautiful. Glad I'm saving my money on my Mazinkaiser through Previews, but jow I have to wait another month too!
Also really want to get a God Sigma one day. Hope they rerelease it and I can get it sub-$200. Such a great looking figure.
BBTS has a housed package but I think the figure is mint, possibly untouched. They are selling it for $250 though.
***Retraction it's all over eBay for $250***
Yeah they've had that one for a while. They are pretty readily available for about 250 new through amazon, ebay and several Japanese sites like mandarake. I'm sure it is worth the $250 too, it's just not in my top 5 next expensive purchases, particularly since I have to pay for the Fewture Dragon and Liger really soon. Those will kill me and I need to force myself to take a little break after those.
Definitely my favorite big combining SOC. If you email BBTS and give Joel shit about getting a new boxed version on eBay for $250 he may drop the price. He has done it for me before (although he rarely answers email anymore) I just got the Fewture Dragon. Like SOC, SRC, MP Transformers, Third Party TF stuff aren't bad enough Fewture has to totally kill me. Oh and I forgot CM Grendizer. What a year I am going to sell a kidney.
Maybe keep an eye on Ebay. It's usually around 200 in auction. Just set the feed so whenever there is one Godsigma in auction style, you will know.
Anybody interested in a SOC GX-52 Getter 1? I have a mint in box one that I'm looking to part with.
Hi, a friend and I both pre-ordered SRC Mazinkaiser from Hobbysearch. He received both items and opened his up. Seems the pilder was broken out of box. Is this a common issue on Mazinkaiser? How is Hobbysearch's customer service on this kind of thing?
I'm out of town, so I don't know whether mine has the same issue.
Amazon has Danguard for 76 with free shipping.
Amazon.com: Bandai Tamashii Nations Danguard Ace "Planet Robot Danguard Ace" Soul of Chogokin Action Figure: Toys & Games
If it wasn't about to be Xmas with my money going to presents for others, that is just the right price for me to consider grabbing Danguard.
If you need a Scrander set for your DX Mazinger, amazon has the, for $43 right now down from $100!
SON OF A BITCH!! I should have waited!
