    For the price, that's pretty impressive. Very nice.

    Thanks for covering these weird old toys. Most of this obscure stuff would've been lost to time, drowned out by the popular toys of their day.

    It's wacky and obscure stuff like this that keeps me glued to CollectionDX! Always keeping it fresh, unique, and interesting!

    The gyroscope stabilization is awesome! I wish more toys utilized such a feature! Such a mechanism would've been great for something like, say, a Masters of the Universe vehicle.

  • Even crazier than the chameleon! Almost hard to take in the mechanical side up close, but from a distance, it all comes together. Very cool.

    Very cool. Doing the half complete/half mechanical thing could be its own line, or maybe a gimmick for some kind of media.

    The fact that the motocompo is pretty much immobile is kind of disappointing

    I believe UBO is another toy in the line and the callout is stating that the toys won't interfere with each other.

    The gun looks like Earth King's weapon from the Godaikin Godsigma set.

  • Wow, they are still available? These are a steal at that price.

  • Just bought the red one from their website!
    Red, yellow, and green are still available and at a discounted price of $35!
    Go get ‘em!

    That is a cool set that looks exactly like the name sounds. Was about to say, the dx brick is too good to be true. But even cooler that you can get the bricks customized.

    Nice review.

    Solo, each of these sets have looked interesting. Together, it's nice to see how they interact and have themed groups. Very cool.

    Of the ones you've covered, I think the blue series is the coolest looking, but the green series is the best designed.

    That really is cool on both fronts, the suspenders and the packaging. Wonder if there's a museum filled with such things, not toys but the merchandise that went along side them.

    If someone decides to read this, and would have a nice scan of the sticker sheet,, shoot me an email to
    Thanks. Fun reading this review from 13 years ago, and great to have this resource still.

    I really love this updated Dancouga figure! I think it's about time one of these 3rd party companies try their hand at making one. Unfortunately he's not as popular as Voltron/Golion because there a literally a million different figures available. Licensed & unlicensed. High quality & crap quality. Maybe one day though...

    For $45, that's pretty good. May have to pre-order, but I'm really looking forward to other characters they'll do.

    Looks nice - was one of my favorite Gobots. Liked the action toys releases, but these look swank. Anything to get more Machine Robo out there!

    I might pick one of these up next year. Seeing these, and seeing Hasbro getting serious about vehicle toys again recently, I wonder if there's any chance of new M.A.S.K. toys getting made anytime soon. Or even just reissues of the originals.

    Ramen Toys is doing a modern Thunderhawk that looks really good. Maybe one or more of these things will get that ball rolling.

  • Dino Mega Playset a badly molded folded up mortar - the light artillery tubes used by infantry. It would fit with the other military themed accessories.

    You are an opinionated coward - you force your opinions on other people and call them names when they have a different opinion than yours and you know they can't answer you back and pretend that nothing happened every time you're here.

    You are a hypocritical whiner - you call people like that while you never look in the mirror while most of your posts are just like that, whining.

    You are the type of person who enjoys to be miserable to others because your life is too boring and this is the only way for you to have some sort of excitement.

    But go ahead and do your own thing because that's what you always do until the day you wake up and realize how much time you wasted whining and ranting instead of doing something more productive.

    Assuming that by "goggled" you mean where his eyes were joined by the eye color being extended across the bridge of his nose (which turned into full goggles in some art after the first time it happened), that was a look only present in the comics, and only inconsistently.

    For instance, nowhere to be seen in the iconic image of Fort Max pulling his own damn head off:

    Or these:

    A comic-only look that wasn't even constantly present in the comics wouldn't even have been in the running.

    If by goggled you just mean the eyes sticking out of the face, there are reasons why they wouldn't have gone that route even when they went with an American face for Cerebros:
    1. Inset eyes like the toy and the Headmasters depiction are easier to sculpt and paint; they also made it easier to do the clear eyes for the electronic lights
    2. The toy/Headmasters look is probably more iconic overall, and it was also the only one suitable for the prospective redecoes.
    3. Related to 2, having multiple Cerebros faceplates is one thing, multiple Fort Max faceplates is another.
    4. Conflicting designer desires.

    When the reviewer or commenter is an illogical whiny bitch? Yes.

    Whoever designs these figures does a good job. Flea can attach to the shoulder of Krepitus. These little design choices for the line are awesome.

    I didn't notice the loops before, awesome detail!

    Nice pics! What I really like about the figure are his harpoon accessories. There are tiny loops on the wrist launchers and harpoons themselves so you can tie string to them if you want. That was well thought-out. Plus, the dude is buff.
