No they are both better (have better wings anyway).
soooo God Max. Vs Shadow Dagwon? count me in.
LOOOOLLL at this thing. That's supposed to be a lion? Looks more like one of those Quill Rats from Diablo II.
That looks awesome. I think i'll have to import that one.
I'll be damned - it does look like the legs go all the way up. At least on the shark. The other two are a little more ambiguous.
It's a little odd that the blurb doesn't mention that ability, though. The blurbs we've seen for GouKenzan make it REALLY clear. You'd think they'd want to mention it here too. I guess, to be fair, they specifically refer to this combination as the "Land" Sanjou Gattai. The GouKenzan toy, so far, has just been called "Sanjou Gattai". So, maybe they felt some need to only reveal this one combination?
Not sure I'd go so far as to assume any of the six toys can combine, though...
Epic looking beastformers that combine Getter Robo style?
Looks great, I might give this a shot.
I'd wanna see a photo of the combined mode - not just artwork.
nope he meant to say they look like power rangers crap from bandai, the power rangers have distinctive "aesthetic" of blocky vehicles with tacked on animal themes, the braves/eldoran have similar themes but usually better designed because they are robotic animals, not animal themed vehicles, so no it's not japan-ish style, it's very much bandai's power rangers style. takaratomy isn't above imitating its competitor if they figure that's what the kids are buying these days.
These Ninja team do spot similar look like some of those Superlink Transformers.
I wonder why robotkingdom only has these has individuals and doesn't have a special going for the set of 3 like they do for the Samurai Team.
Any idea when anime-export/HLJ/Ami-ami will put up preorders?
It's because these three are spread out over three months instead of releasing at the same time.
It's probably because while the Samurai are coming all together in June, these three are coming months apart (the first in July, then one in August and the shark in September).
I'd expect preorders about a month before the release of each on HLJ and stuff. Try around the 14th-18th or so?
These lok interesting. But it looks like the combining has put a toll on their design. That lion head is huge. And the bird doesnt really look much like a bird (like Hawksaber).
These figures look interesting and kinda remind me of RID combiners where function took priority ahead of form. For example JRX - which was a lot of fun - had individual robots which had the robot element worked on last with vehicle and combiner element first.
These look similar with the sharkbot having huge legs to allow for a stable lower torso in combined and, no doubt, beefy arms in chest mode.
The birdbot much like in the equivalent in JRX will serve as a stabilizing component.
I am aware that any bot can fit any role but I'm sure that there will be some trade off somewhere.
All in all, these look very interesting not least became they 'came out of nowhere' and seem to be pure fun and ott Japanese design first.
What's the size of the single and combined robot?
I will rather they come out a giftset or sort of rather than individual.
This looks pretty classic. I'm not sure where i've seen lion heads as a transforming bot's symbol but I'm sure I have. Maybe Power Rangers. It's a shame Hasbro doesn't make Transformers in the Unicron Trilogy style no more.
I've always thought that those series had a G1-ish style.
And compared to recent TF series, IMO they really do.
Single bot would be voyager sized (same as the samurai team) & as for combined mode not too sure at the moment..
Separate names with a comma.
