    I have a Chinese bootleg kabaya Scorponok, Trypticon, Fort max, and powermaster optimus prime. They are pretty cool but the colors are way off. Scorponok is brown. Fort max is red and green. But still cool.

    Cool, they're making Star Convoy. I'm looking forward to it since I'm a fan of Animated.

    When did Star Convoy appear in Animated? There was that little Activators Prime that was a Star Convoy homage, but that's it as far as I'm aware...

    Due to not having any electronics, it can split its legs apart. The Brave Gum wave 2 kinda soured my opinion of kabayatoys. Especially the smaller ones. If these were sized like Bandai's minipla it would be fine but these guys are WAY too small.

    If you want these guys cheap, watch captured prey. They typically let you buy non-random singles.

    Yep. I get all my kabaya kits from there. cheap shipping, good prices, fantastic experience all around. one thing people may not like is that you have to pay for preorders up front, but that's never bothered me.

    I'm not sure. I do love Kabaya kits... but these guys aren't really doing much for me. I don't really care about Star Convoy, as I never watched that series that he may have been in if there was one... I've watched Masterforce. Once. Buster and Hydra are neat, but... how much do I want em... I dunno.

    That said, I do have the Kabaya Road Ceasar/Overlord sets, and the Big Powered, and they are really fantastic.

    I dunno. I'll give em more thought later on, I guess.

    It's the same kind of gum as in baseball card/movie cards of yesteryear. I'm sure it'll be as fresh as cardboard. It's only in there so these can be sold in Japanese grocery stores.

    Yeah, it'll be fine. I've chewed all the gum that came with my candy toys. its not anywhere near as bad as people like to say. I think its actually pretty good, but the flavor doesn't last long.
