    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.

    ShowZ generally has the best prices for me in the UK.

    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).

    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.

    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.

    Kind of hoping BBTS is at TFCon this weekend and this is available.
    Not very realistic, but hey, it'd be cool.
