    Well that's not "Super Robot" per se, so I think Bandai's not gonna go with that.

    Holy shit, this line is going to include a Kiba?! I think Kiba only got one other toy, which became so absurdly collectible that I've only ever seen it behind glass for like $120 at a Mandarake. Online prices are worse, and it's not even a very good toy!

    I plan on buying up the entire Dendoh line for Super Robot Chogokin, these sculpts look great. There's never been a really poseable Knight Ogre and the one really poseable Dendoh they issued was a limited-edition high grade model kit of some sort that rapidly became super-collectible due to limited run.

    (I checked prices about 5 years ago and that kit went for like $500, it's probably worse now.)

    Wow, really? Sorry my bad then, should've really read the list properly.

    I guess then it'll be a first where Super Sentai mecha aren't just huge blocks,eh? I'll be watching to see how Bandai pulls this off.

    Seconded...
    And please make LiOh and Ialdabaoth too, Bandai :D


    Dendoh is tempting too. I think if this line is as success as SHF and Dendoh series sells good, maybe they will make other animal(Gattling Boar, Dragon Flare, Unicorn Drill, Leo Circle, Viper Whip, etc) as Tamashii Web exclusive like Kibarrow and BladeBlade for SHF:redface2:

    ^ Dendoh is second on my list, but if the animals like you said becomes exclusive I'm fine with just Dendoh itself >.<

    The original Data Weapon toys weren't bad so I wouldn't want a "show-perfect" version of them. Maybe a Unicorn Drill and Leo Circle that could actually be combined into Kiba, but I'm pretty sure the in-show Kiba transformation footage cheats.

  19. Sweet! I wonder if this line will eventually replace Soul Of Chogokin.

    It's possible... ;) Like for KR, they had Souchaku Henshin Figures, and then was replaced by S.H. Figuarts. The specs shows that this line is maybe smaller. The nice thing is (from what I read), that this will have full die-cast. I'm crossing my fingers on that.
