  • Are these the same as the older Banpresto valkyries that were released some years ago? I believe they were the same scale and also made from ABS, the Toynami version here looks an awful lot like them even down to the packaging.

  • Thank you Josh for letting me play in this wonderful sandbox you have here. It has been loads of fun for me. Happy New Year to you and yours.

  • Wow Josh. Thank you. Personally and Professionally had it not been for you, I'd probably be just another Gundam nerd. Now I'm a published Gundam Nerd with a website behind him. I want to say that my knowledge base is only thanks to those that came before me and what I've learned first hand.

    While I've been behind on getting you some new material, I just want to say that I promise some great things in 2007. Building a Better model one year at a time!

  • I'd like to send thanks to all the contributors for the great articles and fantastic photography that's been posted over the past year. I also want to extend my thanks to Josh for all his help in editing and posting the few reviews i managed to pound out this year (hopefully I'll manage to do a few more for '07), you've managed to make a fantastic site that will help preserve the history and trends of the hobby, not only for the die hard collectors, but also for those who are just now getting into the hobby. CDX has become a great tool to educate all of us not only about the present and future of this hobby, but also about it's history and origins.

  • Funny, he pronounces my username correctly [most (ignorant) people online think I'm a girl!], but then turns around and botches my real name! Well, don't feel too sorry, Josh; most people do that too.

    .

    Seriously, though, I want to thank you (and for that matter, Russell Cox, for helping put CDX up!) for allowing me the opportunity to share my collection online. That is something that I had never really considered doing.

    .

    I thought that it would just be a one-time thing with my first review of the DX Ninpuu Gattai Senpuujin from "Ninpuu Sentai Hurricanger", but I was encouraged by Josh (and some nameless people offline) to continue to develop my writting and photographic skills. (The photo side, not so much.) The more I collected (I have well over 70 individual pieces/sets), the more I wanted to share it even though I knew I was still well behind older collectors such as Josh, and I was a bit more selective (and less-wealthy) than others in what ended up on my shelves. Hopefully someone would notice it, and then come up to me in the real world and say they liked. (I really do need that feedback, folks!)

    .
    Not too bad for a guy with high-functioning autism, huh...?
    .

    Well, once more, thank you to CollectionDX for the opportunity, and I look forward to sharing more of my collection in 2007!

    PS: Do I really know way too much about Super Sentai???

  • Well, thanks for the..thanks. Actually, I think I'd be mad if you suddenly said I COULDN'T contribute anymore. I love having a forum to do the Jumbo stuff, and god knows I would never have the initiative to do my own website.LOL

    And yeah, thanks also to James and Rob, whose vast knowledge of intricate toys/models hopefully goes a long way towards compensating for my limited knowledge of simple ones! :)

    Looking forward to more from Atom, Sanjeev, etc... I love the variety of the site. So many different interests.

    And definitely thanks to Russell. Is it safe to say he is sort of the "Wizard of CDX"? Thanks for doing so much of the behind the scenes work.

  • Looks cool enough. If it transforms and is big enough, I'd get one... I just don't know anything about it!

  • Yes, I have taken what I have read here into consideration. For example since the review of the Revoltech Getter 3 figure, I've had an inkling to get one, which I didn't have before. Same with the "G.I. Joe Sigma 6" Dragonhawk V-TOL aircraft- that thing is cool! Reviews of the various Soul of Chogokin Evangelion Units from "Neon Gegesis Evangelion" also allowed me to get detailed information on them without having to risk money on them first. (Of course, the first one I get would be my namesake- EVA Unit-04 .
    I am also pleased to report that since I joined CDX over a year ago (two?), I've had just a handfull of random people on the street I've been talking to say how much the like CDX. (Two commented directly on MY reviews!)

  • Hi,

    I recently came across your review via a link at another site. The thread related to the numerous bootleg figures being sold online. Sadly, all three of your figures are not lemons. All three are fake. I've seen the real version, and believe me, it's flawless and not even painted. The PVC is colored. Sadly collectors, like you, don't realize you're buying fake Japanese figures. Your description of the various flaws leave no doubt in my mind. This figure was a showcase figure. It was immaculate, and the coloring looked EXACTLy like the figure on the box (note: your figure's arms are not colored properly). All three of your Cammy are definitely fake, recasted Hong Kong bootlegs, and all three show the typical signs of a bootleg. Dead giveaway is the seams, paint, construction, availability outside of Japan, and lack of licensing sticker on the copied box. A Limited Ed. Japanese figure (mass produced or not) will not show the flaws found in your figures. This figure released at approximately $60.00 in Japan, and only 1000 were sold by preorder at WonderFest. It's highly unlikely you could even find it for less than the preorder price or at all in numbers higher than 1 at a time outside of Japan.

    eBay is flooded with bootleg figures. If you want to protect yourself from buying fakes, please take time to research fake figures. I found your site and this review on this thread:

    Good luck!

  • Danguard Ace

    I had forgotten but there was also a difference in Dangard Ace boxes. Some say "Super Hero Poster" in Katakana, followed by some kanji that I don't know. It probably means something like "included" or "bonus" or some such. But that way you can tell which version is inside. It's written in silver on the right side.

    Excellent job on the review by you and Nate. I really need to start actually opening and inspecting my SOCs. I have this, but I had no idea it had a stand to display in Marveller mode.

  • i'd love to review the Fewture EX Gokin getter, but as its very expensive, it isn't in the works right now. If a sponsor wants to send it to us, or a user wants to review it we would love that!

  • Hello. I thought that this review was very interesting. I wonder if you are planning to review this version of Getter, which looks even more interesting. (I don't know Japanese and don't know if this toy is even released yet, so I apologize if this is a stupid question.)

    When I saw this at Target last night, I kinda wonder what the heck is up with this? For all who knows, Hasbro might release some star trek transformers, THEN I would start to think there insane.
