  • I love my Travelion! I would recommend though, if you are going to get it, to get the Toys R Us Japan exclesive version which includes a gold version of MagiShine's Grip Phone and a new set of more show accurate spell cards.

  • Thanks for the info - I've been meaning to watch the anime for some time now... It looks great.

  • I'll tell you why there are two different flames...
    The flame depends on which "female" robot Danner merges with. Yes, there are TWO female robots: Neo-Okusaer & Go-Okusaer. Neo-Okusaer was the original one, which created the Red Flame in Godannar's head. Go-Okusaer is the updated version that produces Godannar's Blue Flame.

  • LMAO...

    For a *split* second, I was biting into this, until it dawned on me what day it was.

    ...then, I read that Fred Garvin had retired from male prostitution to become a Bandai product manager, and I had to pick myself off the floor laughing and sit back in my chair to leave my comment.

    Good stuff Josh. XD

  • I was totally falling for this, until the Todd MacFarlane thing.... Sounds like something they would try/ruin. Nice Work!

    This might be the weirdest packaging idea I've seen and the link to carnivals almost makes me want them.

  • Josh, can you upload a picture of the Voltron knees in anything other than a 5 degree angle? I can't get mine to bend the knees, and I don't want to use excessive force to get them to bend. As far as the Godannar, you will not be dissapointed...

  • Voltron really fired his fists in the show? Wow, I'm getting old, because I don't remember that. ;-)

    My masterpiece bends at the knee. Granted, there's really no pose that you can put him in that lets you use it, but still, its there.

    Oh, And I'll have the Max Godanner up next week.

  • Come on JoshB, Voltron not only fired both "fists" in the show, but it also fired the Blue and Yellow lions heads several times.

    As far as Voltron's knee articulation, it is almost the same as the original Popy/Bandai/Bootlegs... the knees do not bend back or forward. Unfortunately, this means that you will never see Voltron kneeling down, rendering honors to the Max Factory Godannar Twin Drive Mode (die cast) figure for its incredible articulation system.

  • Bandai Museum Tour

    Great article. Unfortunately the Gundam Cafe was closed by the time you got there. You could have had a Mono Eye or Haro drink at the bar. That place was a trip.

    The Garada used to be bound to the ceiling with wires. A friend of mine was involved in setting up the Bandai Museum, and told me the Garada was found in one of Popy's old warehouses, gathering dust. Nobody had any idea what it was.

    I even got a third one of these at a New Englad Comics sale for only $10. So they are out there for cheap if you keep your eyes open.

  • DVD Review: Robot Jox

    That's not really true... The format for the movie's "bio" here is limited at this point because of how Joshua set it up initially. I've been going over details with him for the last few days, and we're planning on reformating how it looks. In the review I initially submitted, Joe Haldeman's name was credited as the screenwriter. But for now, this is all that'll appear.

    I'm gonna have to forward that page to a few people, though.

  • DVD Review: Robot Jox

    You forgot one of the most notable things about this film - it was written by legendary science fiction writer Joe Haldeman. You can read about his experiences writing it here.

  • I am so jealous of you guys!! I am so itching to go to Tokyo sometime in May, but I am presently saving for a downpayment for an place.

    I have been to Japan once when I was 15yrs.old and haven't gone back since then.

    Keep putting up this travel guides. Thanks a lot.

  • Awesome job Josh, Loved how you edited and presented my writeup and the pics are outstanding as always.

  • nice one, i just got back from a 3 day visit to tokyo in early feb. i just had to go, was nowhere near my actual destination of canada (visiting friends for xmas) but just threw it into the plans! spent a lot of time in dept stores where the sheer size of the 'cool' toy section was about the size of the whole toys r us store here in west australia! spun me right out but i was there for the markets. heard there were all sorts of used toys for sale market style but couldnt really find what i was after. learnt a lot though - take heaps of US dollars or yen (not all credit cards work!), learn some japanese coz no one speaks english, get good maps and know where you wanna go, dont get lost on subways and get where you wanna get early coz theyre not open 24/7!!

    cool place - was raining the whole time i was there tho - but really cool. I will be prepared next time and there will be a next time! Have a great time and keep living the dream while you can!

    Thanks for collectionDX! your collection is inspirational to say the least..

  • Nice one, this sort of info. is always helpfull.

    I was lucky enough to travel to Tokyo a few years ago and I can recommend to anyone GO, GO NOW!!!- YOU WON"T BE DISAPPOINTED.

    I had the luck of being able to tag along with a mate of mine on one of his buying trips to Tokyo and Hong Kong (he owns an shop and finds hims self traveling to these location on a regular basis - LUCKY BASTARD!!) Anyway, he had sussed out most of the cool shops on previous trips which made it even easier to plow through my meager budget like there was no tomorrow (ahh, it's only money) and I couldn't believe the amount of great stuff these shops had in stock .

    If you are thinking of going you should also try to time it with one of the swap and sells they hold at Tokyo Big Site. We timed our stay in Tokyo with the WCC (World Character Convention), which is one of the smaller swap and sells but there where still tons of dealers.

  • NYTF06: Hasbro

    It has recently come to my attention that there will be more than just the five "Beast Wars" sets mentioned above. The original versions of Tarantulus, Dinobot, and Transmetal Rattrap will be reissued as well; each including CD with a single "Beast Wars" episode highlighting that character.

    Each set will also have the final three pieces for the exclusive Transmutate figure- bringing the total number of collectable pieces to eight.

    We got the review toy at Newbury Comics as well. Great deal.

  • Space Runaway Ideon

    I totally agree with you that this is an awesome toy. I initially wanted one when it was first released but did not want to pay the whopping 5,800 yen plus international shipping. This toy was later relased domestically and i stumbled across one at Newbury Comics for 20 bucks. And have seen several others at other Newbury Comics. So if you are looking for this awesome toy at an awesome price, i suggest starting there.
