    Any updates on the SOC Voltron reissue and the SOC vehicle Voltron that's coming this year?

    SOC Golion is amazing in person. Easy to handle too, if you played with the Godaikin release back in the day or any iteration of that mold, the SOC won't feel too much different. It'll feel familiar, yet better. That last part is especially what I love about it. The way you can pose the lions on their own is ridiculous.

    Is there even confirmation it’s happening? I’d be fine with an announcement for now as I have the one that company did a couple years ago and it’s fine. Miracle, was it?

    I don't know if there has been anything officially official. Lol. Some number of pages back in this thread, someone said a Mexican distributor for Bandai...or something like that...said it is coming in 2019. I know...kind of a HE TELL ME situation.

    And yes...Miracle Metal Works made your MP Dairugger.

    It's not "he tell me" at all. The source is Bandai's distributor in Mexico, they've announced things well in advance before that ended up being real.

    I can't find the link, it's not an announcement like a press release but more of "hey this is coming soon" and then it usually does. Anyone remember the link?

    I'm hopeful they release him! I just didn't have any luck turning up any concrete evidence earlier.

    Didn’t know there was an anime colored version! I’ll have to check that out.


    On an unrelated note, I finally started putting together my Super MiniPla - have only done the black lion and haven’t yet applied the stickers. It has been ages since I built anything from a kit - really makes me appreciate the factory workers that make all my other toys. I almost feel like it should be mandatory for all the QC complainers out there to do it. Also, I knew about the stickers, but damn, it really does frustrate me to have to apply them. Any good tips to help get them straight the first time?

    I know it isn’t a perfect figure, but I still love the Miracle Metalworks Dairugger. So many cool accessories and display options!

    I probably won’t get rid of mine, even if Bandai does a SOC version.

    Some of those stickers are a pain. The only advice I can offer is to use tweezers or the tip of an xacto knife to gently position them. Get one corner or edge of the sticker in the proper place, check the orientation, and press it down firmly only after you are sure the position is correct.

    I'd actually suggest just use the tip of a toothpick, as unlike an xacto, there is no risk of scratching something.
