LOVE that Galvatron fig! 

I loved Nimoy's voice acting for the character ;)

It doesn't show under Open Orders. I found it under Orders History or something like that. I sent them an email, hoping that they'll reply 

Hmm, well you should have gotten an email with a tracking link in it when it shipped, if it was trackable.

Not to put a damper on how nice that Galvatron looks in Bot mode but the Cannon mode is definitely lacking to me.

HLJ loot arrived. Thinking about switching to EMS instead of Fedex even though its more expensive. .

No that looks like the Super Robot Chogokin, not Chogokin. Scales with Figuarts, roughly 6".

That actually is the Soul of Chogokin GX-70 Mazinger DC; not SRC. THat Devilman Figuart was designed to pair with the GX-70 though.

Think of this way:

1/6 Hot Toys = Arcadia
1/6 Bandai Kits = Bandai DX

For me, Arcadia will always have collectible shelf presence than Bandai DX's toy looking shelf presence. ;)

I totally disagree with this analogy, but to each his own. I don't think the gap in quality/finish for an Arcadia and Bandai DX is a much as a pre-painted Hot Toys figure VS a model kit.

IMO, Bandai DX's have more impressive shelf presence especially if you like displaying your toys in dynamic poses. If you just want them standing up in relatively simple poses, then perhaps I would give a slight edge to Arcadia/Yamato, but that's entirely subjective and based on part ersonal preference.

What really? I guess that shows what I know about Mazinger and Mazinger figures, which admittedly isn't much, I've never liked the series or designs. So is GX-70 roughly standard Chogokin height? 10-11" or so? I just figured Devilman was standard Figuarts roughly 6" scale. Is Devilman a giant Figuarts? I know his box is bigger and flashier but I didn't know he was bigger, I knew he was to scale with that particular DC Mazinger, I just though they were both about 6". Interesting. So ignore me Slave IV, I know not which I post about :mellow:.

That GX - 70 mazinger is the newest mazinger release, using the design from the tv show. The devilman its indeed a figuarts figure, but you could say its oversized, to match mazinger, i think bandai is aiming for mazinger vs devilman feel.

Those SOC are around 18 cms and have a good amount of diecast content, the SRC goes around 12 cms and are more plastic than diecast.

The 11 inc (33sh cms) figure are only 2. DX chogokins (would be the same line as macross valks) are mazinger and great mazinger.

Haha, no problem. FWIW, SOC Mazinger is on the shorter side of SOC's so as explained below, Devilman is a bit taller than a typical SHF so they meet in the middle I guess.

Had this guy delivered two-day, more then I should have paid, but I was always a fan of Gears in the original G1 cartoon.

I think Badcube pretty much nailed this guy, he's not perfect, but he's about as G1 Gears as you can get. The transformation is a bit rough in the front end but the end results are great, clean bot mode with a spot on silhouette, and a perfectly chibi little random non-decript bright red and blue truck. I'm just three bots away from my goal of having the original G1 cartoon Arc crew in Masterpiece form, I'm so close!

In retrospect I think the VF-171 mold is my favorite from all the Frontier DX Valkyries (barring the durability issues of the cannon fodder).

Congrats!  The 171s look great, not the easiest transformation sequence, but once you remember the tricky bits it gets easier.

 On another note... I freaking LOVE this Voltron!!! It just feels like a ton of metal!  Well done Bandai!!!

Yup he did a better job than the voice on the series.

I think its worth every penny because of the quality.

All good!  Fanstoys are known to have better bot modes than their alternate modes.  In fairness I rather have a better bot mode because he will be alternate mode too often.

Well unless I do the coronation scene pic AHHA!

I got him as well.  The QC is really crappy but the overall size of KO MP-08 is amazing and makes up for it.

I agree, I've been hesitant about getting these but it was such a good deal I couldn't resist. Just transformed it to Gerwalk & Battroid with no issues. I'm sold on the VF-171 now. B))

@Scyla, It really is a good looking VF! Down the road when I eventually get a CF 171, buying the replacement triangles will be my first upgrade. Was that the worst issues with it or do other parts explode?

Opened up my second HMR Armor.  Can't wait for the third one to come in.  It looks pretty cool on the CF VF-1J.
