    God that is such an ugly Drive form. Looks more like a rejected Constructicon design than a Kamen Rider suit.

    Hulk looks weird. Something is off about Captain America as well. Hopefully those aren't the final sculpts.

    They're done in an "anime" type style. Especially Hulk.



    Premium Drive Pit set

    It's about the size of a hot wheel set

    I absolutely detest the Zeronos Altair mold. No double jointed torso, and the feet are too wide. The hands are molded pretty cheaply and don't hold his saber worth squat. Low articulation in the shoulders due to his shoulder pads. Now, it looks like from that image that Vega is using the same mold, just with the cape and EXTRA shoulder pads. So, look forward to even LESS articulation on the shoulders than before.

    It's not a burst effect, it's a large machine called Final Meteor, also from Mebius.

    Yeah I saw that in the Ultra-Act thread, looked like a burst to me based on that image.

    That robotic looking Ultraman a couple of pages back looks so bad ass, must buy for me. I like these Avengers figures too. But I agree, I want more Dragonball figures... at this rate I'll be long dead before I get all the figures I want. I also wouldn't mind seeing more Injustice figures... Speaking of Injustice Figuarts, Injustice Superman is now available for preorder in North America.

    Batman/Superman didn't interest me - I'm waiting on a GL/YL variant.

    Agreed, Sinzz. If I can't buy the Hot-Toys HulkBuster, the figuarts version shall be MINE.

    I hope Bluefin will get to distribute Marvel figures to help save a little bit on these... Thor doesn't look that great to me, but I will probably get him as well to complete the team.

    There's not a chance Hasbro will allow them to be released in the US.

    I think we'll be lucky if the Hulk is less than $100.

    Does anyone here have Blade King form? I got mine today but there's something that worries me. The hands that are supposed to hold the sword seem very weird and unfitting for it. Is it just me that feels this way?

    I've had Blade King since release - and the hands are just fine. How do you mean?

    I think the main difference is that most of the hands are sculpted to allow for 2h posing instead of 1. (with the possible exception of the hand that I think is specifically for the "sword drag" pose)

    The way the hand is cupped is really small and it looks/feels like I'm forcibly stretching out the hand as long as it's holding the sword. Looking at the way it's sculpted makes me feel like he's supposed to hold the sword sideways even though I know that's not true. Like, when I put the sword in the hand, there's still a pretty big gap inside the hand. I've never seen this with any other figuart. Maybe I'm just nitpicking. Amazing figure otherwise.

    Okay, I sort of get where the complaint is - and I think it's how I thought it was. Basically, the King Rouser is sort of like a Dark Souls greatsword (I hope you get the reference on the pose here). Because of its weight, it doesn't get handled like other weapons. Best poses are either standing straight up, in some sort of extended slash, or with it resting on a shoulder.
