300 in fact, and another fifty for the walls. :/
If the stock holds out, I plan on starting with maybe a couple towers a a couple walls and see about adding on a bit more month by month.
edit: and up on TCP
Toys Alliance x Archecore ARC-11 URSUS GUARD ARCHE-SOLDIER SQUAD (thechosenprime.com)
Toys Alliance x Archecore ARC-10 URSUS GUARD ASGARD SHIELD SET (thechosenprime.com)
Toys Alliance x Archecore ARC09 URSUS GUARD MOBILE FORTRESS STONEHENGE SET (thechosenprime.com)
They're up on PIA for more reasonable prices, though I'm not sure how much shipping would add:
PRE-ORDER ARCHECORE ARC-09 URSUS GUARD MOBILE FORTRESS STONEHENGE SET - Pocket In Action Club
PRE-ORDER ARCHECORE ARC-10 URSUS GUARD ASGARD SHIELDS SET - Pocket In Action Club
PRE-ORDER ARCHECORE ARC-11 URSUS GUARD ARCHE-SOLDIER SQUAD - Pocket In Action Club
PIA's checkout has a shipping estimate. The prices usually range from about USD retail to a fair bit cheaper. Though, lately some things have come up a bit more.
Shipping to the us is like forty bucks from them.
ShowZ generally has the best prices for me in the UK.
I’ll start with three walls, two towers and one troop
Eh......yeah, it's disappointing that the walls, towers, and bunkers are so expensive. But who am I kidding, I'm purchasing this toy line because I like the transforming robots. It doesn't look like the walls, towers, or bunkers have much (or any?) interactions with the transforming robots. I don't think I'll have any problem making up some kind of headcanon and having my Archecore transforming robots fight similarly-scaled Transformers figures, amidst backdrops made of Titans Return Fortress Maximus, Earthrise Skorponok, etc.
Ouch, I might hold off until I get the rest of the first wave and the robots.
I'll just wait and see if I can afford this stuff when it comes out. I'll likely only ever get like, one wall and one tower set anyway, as something to have on my desk
Kind of ancillary, but these were posted on a 1/18 FB group:
20.34US $ 1% OFF|RIHIO Infinite and Far reaching Series Alien Beast Emperor Manlong Soft Plastic Model Movable Toy Figure Best Gift|Transformer/Robot| - AliExpress
7.99US $ |12cm RIHIO Alien Beast Garage Kit Statue for Fan Holiday Gift|Action Figures| - AliExpress
These beasties aren't the first product from the company; RIHIO, and are meant to go with their 1/60 mecha line. Unfortunately; whilst you can find the mecha on BBTS, I haven't located the aliens on any American sites.
Still; I picked up 3 of the unarticulated four packs and 2 of the bigger articulated ones. If (when) Archecore gets around to making those bug things from the backstory these will make perfect stand ins until then (and even then they look cool to have around).
BBTS shipped my dudes! Gonna get them monday.
Looks like this one (in two parts and in Mandarin, though) shows off the transformation process a little better, though sometimes out of frame. No partsforming after all. Transformation looks to be a bit of a process.
This reviewer doesn't like the shoulders lol.
The one I found sucked.
First in-hand reviews! The transformation is definitely more involved than I thought. I like the clicking sounds of ratchets in the joints
I am super pumped for this figure. Absolutely adore the Mad Max/Blade Runner design of the alt mode.
The Chosen Prime has Frost Light listed as 'arriving soon' for anyone interested!
Toys Alliance x Archecore ARC-02 UARCHE-YMIRUS TYPE-03 AY-03F FROST LIGHT (Transformable Robot)
I was going to ship my Stash tomorrow. Looks like I'm holding off on shipping the Archecore stuff till it comes in. Hoping not tomorrow, Friday works better for me.
Kind of hoping BBTS is at TFCon this weekend and this is available.
Not very realistic, but hey, it'd be cool.
