1/12 is also just too darned big for most folks. My collection of Yamato toys takes up a huge amount of my storage and i can't imagine this will be any better.

Looks like the arctic gear line is making a comeback. I don't know if they are the same 1/48 scale, but I'm very interested.

Also more wave 1/35 kits like the scopedog red shoulder custom and the one I was really hoping for, the blood sucker. I really don't think that one has ever had a plastic kit until now.

It's gonna be some great times for votoms fans with kits and toys in various scales.

Any details on the new arctic gear line? I'm hoping its a continuation of the AG-N varient

When someone mentioned am HMR Scopedog I immediately thought AGN. If it's coming back, great, we need Strike and Rabidly Dogs.

I think it's the same an the agn figures in the same scale. I saw the pictures at the tag hobby site on the takara/tomy section for the hobby show. They also look like they have those same info cards. I can't read Japanese so I can't give a great rundown on all that's there, but there are pictures.

Wave also has some new 1/24 scale kits like a burglary dog and marshy dog and another scopedog variant with sitting and standing Fyana figures shown on the dengeki hobby site.

Is this what you are referring to?

Looks like a Strikedog =) but in the AG-V variant =(

I was really hoping for a continuation of the AG-N line which had die-cast legs/feet and a painted pilot and interior. I never had the chance to get the previous releases. =(

I think that berserga may be a new variant. I know the old line did the first version, but this looks like the later version. I could be wrong thoug. I really wish I could read all the info on that tag hobby page.

There also a teaser for a strike dog, so that may be 4 for the Arctic gear series coming soon.

I just pulled out my burglary dog from the old series and it was a lot of fun. I hope they keep going with these.

AGV needed a Zwerg, Strike, Rabidly,ecrevisse, and Strong Bacchus, I think that would do it for the original series and ovas... but I'm probably forgetting something.

What about my favorite from the last red shoulder, the bloodsucker as an Arctic gear figure.

I am super happy it's getting a kit from wave though.

CDX has a review of the preproduction version of the upcoming ScopeDog from ThreeZero:

Josh just confirmed that it's all-plastic...

edit: not sure if the forum is still messing up the urls or whatever...

Looks beautiful though really expensive for incremental improvement to the Yamato.

Nice. Looking forward to your review on this one, Jenius. Btw, just in case you stumbled on those decal of yours, do let me know via PM. I remember messaging you before about it. ;)

I wasn't absolutely sure if those are the same scale as before, but they don't look very large and they have those same info cards so I'm just going to assume they are 1/48 until I'm told otherwise.

Reviving a PM, dear good sir. ;)

I'm debating if I should preorder this. Never got a Scopedog.

Me too. A 1/12 scale is really a great Votoms centerpiece figure. But, for me, it is really too big. And with that price, I was hoping to get some accessories atleast. Like Red Shoulder Custom accessory. Or interchangeable legs for Turbo Custom. :unsure:

Yes, with more accessories I would feel more comfortable preordering it.

Let's say you were 3A and you were selling a $500 scopedog, so you ran the company (this is an internal debate I was having). Since the Scopedogs are so modular which would you do:
1) Sell multiple variants that are only slightly different: (clean, weathered, red shoulder, space war (green), marshy dog, turbo custom)

or would you:
2) Sell conversion kits that comes with new legs and/or accessories?

If I made a Melkia version, I would either include a purple bear conversion kit or sell one separately.

Clearly it's option 1, but that doesn't make me lose hope that they'll eventually sell Chirico separately.

At least it has a fully articulated pilot. The cost is very high overall and the size is a bit too big for me after trying to find space for the hmr monster, but I still admire it.

I don't think three zero has ever dealt with diecast, so it shouldn't be a shock. They use sturdy plastic though.

Can't be worse than the yamoto designs and they had almost no diecast.

I am in for one after seeing their other robot suits from video games and such.

I thought some of the other votoms fans would have brought it up sooner, but since I didn't see an update tag hobby has some pictures of the arctic gear strike dog. I think it looks great and I will definitely buy it.
