Woot! Voltes V and Daimos! :wub:

I'm definitely IN for those two!!! And it looks like it comes with a display base stand. :good: ;) 

I wonder if this is same size and height of the SRC line? Or it's somewhere between SRC and SOC size? Hmmm. Either way, I'm still going to get these two. ^_^

I think all Filipino chogokin/super robot collectors collectively creamed their pants at this.

Is there going to be PO madness for this? I want that Voltes V but at a reasonable price...

PELVIC THRUSTS FOR EVERYONE!

 

Seriously, there is a point where it stops being dynamic posing and becomes "Everyone check out my crotch". Daitarn and Daimos are both well past that point.

...

Hey, someone had to say it.

Iirc, Daitarn's a bit of a goofy as heck bot and anime, so making and getting him to do Obari-pose is unintended comedy gold. Especially that ridiculous over-pelvic-thrusting.

Maybe Bandai should just commission Obari to do a new Daitarn-anime.

and call it Space Dandy Daitarn!

 

:bump:

18cm is just right. ^_^ The only thing I don't like is the 'gundam-styled' waist split armor. I understand the need to do it so to make those dynamic pose. But I grew up watching them not doing too much dynamic poses. Just sayin'.

But at the end of the end, I'm still IN. This is an opportunity for me to own these two for the first time until Bandai decides to announce DX Soc Voltes V and Daimos. ;)

Opened my GX-48K today, very lovely finish. Joints are much better than my old version. Feet still flop down when you lift the figure. The finish however is nothing like the Max Gokin. This is more like a matt rough finish, the Max Gokin was actually textured like wrought iron. Also the chrome on GX-48 has been replaced by more of a satin finish. Im very happy with it and have no regrets about replacing my old GX-48 with this one. I like the fact that the option parts all come neatly arranged in a plastic tray. The old GX-48 option parts set had a bunch of parts in baggies and that bugs me :p

With this new Full Action line they have to get to more of the unmade robots now. I can't see them not making a perfect Lion Voltron in this line. Perhaps that might open the door for accurate lions too. Iczer-Robo would fit in with this line as well.

 

I still want transformable versions of Dangaio, Saber Rider Ramrod, Mighty Orbots, and that Southern Cross Hovertank. But I would take a non-transforming Dangaio which would be better than the old Revoltech. I'm surprised they didn't tease Dangaio and Iczer-Robo already, it would have been nice to see some teaser artwork.

Can. Not. Wait. 

To get Gypsy Danger in my hands - I'm about to change my order at HLJ to ship immediately.

I also like the Avenger design so I hope that gets a SOC release as well.

Looks good! I actually cancelled mine at BBTS, I officially decided to bow out on these Chogokin Jaegers, I already have the monster 18" NECA releases, I don't feel like double dipping on the same mecha in another, more expensive line.

Agreed, looks awesome! I also cancelled an order for the GX-77 at BBTS, but it was for budgetary reasons, I still have my order at HLJ which I can't wait to get my hands on.
