  • I'm impressed at the fact that Bandai America has produced something for the older fans of the franchise. Although I have to say, the muscles on those figures are...YIKES

    Hi, for some reason, the link " Sigma Strike Duke " in your review links to Trendmasters Viltron. http://www.collectiondx.com/node/168.
    Would you mind checking that out? Thanks.

    This week two specimens at both ends of the spectrum sold on Yahoo!Japan. The first was MIB and ended at 646,000 yen (approximately $5,536). The second was loose, missing two horns and one leg spike and ended at 163,000 yen (approximately $1397).

    True that, but since it is my only Duke figure I display him without the helmet. But you do have a point, the faceplate is so frosted he could just pass for a generic soldier with a big gun. :)

    If the helmet's on with the shield down, it's less a repaint of another duke and just a faceless guy.

    With a BFG.

  • I should add that my friend Arturo, of Mazingoandtoys, told me that the huge Mazinger Z was not only on display, but also for sale for roughly $3000 US (+shipping). This one can be taken apart and shipped in pieces, which I don't think those big ones from Japan can be. Furthermore, the eyes light up!

  • In Japan, the series is called Kamen Rider, so we Toku freaks like to use that term more often than Masked Rider. That being said, the first Kamen Rider figure is from Kamen Rider Ryuki, though I can't remember his name. The second one is from Kamen Rider Hibiki, and is the main rider, or Oni, in the show. He's just called Hibiki, plus Kamen Rider Hibiki, along with Ryuki, is considered one of the black sheeps of the Kamen Rider franchise.

    I loved your video review! I had the original big Voltes V toy as a kid -- and it's nice to see the major improvements on this new one.

    Just a comment -- those pointy things inside the Volt Lander "hood" are supposed to be drills, so they're not really supposed to shoot out.

    Again, great review! I'm going out to buy one!

  • OK, here's the deal: first off, the name of FireKaiser's weapon is called the Fire Lancer. Next, it's Douza, not Touza, and Wolzard is actually Blagel, the father. He didn't really kill Miyuki, he just sent her to a magic world known as the Flower Garden of Souls. Other than that, good job! Keep up the good work!

    Well, I just checked the CJT "Completed Auction Thread" and there was no mention of any Daltanious in the past year.

  • Future Robo Daltanious

    >"I honestly cannot remember the last time that I saw one for sale"

    Like you said daltanious is scarce, but i do remember that last year there were about 3 or 4 that came up on yahoojp. 1 of them i know was boxed and the others were in varying states of condition, from complete with sticker wear to one that missing it's legs..i'll check my saved images and maybe can get some dates for you.

  • Ultraman Leo

    Great Jumbo reviews, keep them coming please.

    BTW, I was at the Bandai Museum last November and the Leo box was still there at that point. It was in a display case, lying on it's back, behind some vintage Ultraman toys. Is that how you last saw it? (I took a few pics of it, but it was difficult to get a decent shot due to how it was poorly displayed). If it's gone now, that would be a shame due to it's rarity. That museum is the only place that most collectors would ever see something like that (and the Garada jumbo) so it would be a shame if Bandai didn't appreciate the importance of having the item on display.

  • Ultraman Leo

    Thanks! But I'm probably enjoying writing them even more than you are reading them. I just hope I'm doing the toys justice. They are definitely more difficult to photograph than smaller toys.

  • Ultraman Leo

    I just want to say I'm happy & grateful for your excellent job in these Jumbo Machinders reviews that are so helpful to us the fandom. Please keep up the good work & those awesome reviews!! Now its more easy for me to know what to look in the auctions.

  • Personally, I find it a bit dissapointing and unworthy of the title "masterpiece".

    This version of Voltron has very limited features. For example, the blue lion. The missle canopy feature is gone (the red one where the number 4 is placed). The head missle is gone too. Same with the yellow lion. Absolutely nothing. And the detailing is actually quite minimal for a "masterpiece"(i speak of all the tech details on each toy). The red and green lions do not have a head launching feature anymore. The black lion has no open door chest lock that I was hoping for just like in the cartoons and I also agree that his face just doesnt match up the way it could've. Black lion also has extremely skinny front legs.

    The only thing I appreciated about this figure, was it's articulation of heads and legs. But nothing to wow about especially when Masterpiece Optimus Prime conquored all areas of details and then some. A worthy production for the title "masterpiece" if you ask me.

    I was hoping for something far more detailed and clever like Masterpiece Optimus and the Yamato Valkyrie fighter.
    And at 150.00 USD? No way.

    90.00 USD would be the right price for this so so version. Its just too much hype. "OOH LOOK AT THIS!! AWESOME!!" ... nope.

    Id personally save my money for an original one on ebay. I own 5 sets already. This one is just too expensive for what it offers. The book box isnt convincing enough.
    My two cents.

    Hi, how tall is the figure? It looks great. I'm kind of hoping he's at least 7" tall standing.

    thanks.

  • I should have noticed this, but the chest piece is NOT supposed to come off, mine apparently is just broken. It's supposed to raise up on a "living hinge", but remain attached. From what I can tell, the plastic was pretty thin and hard on mine. Not very flexible. Anyway, it's broken. Damn.

  • sweet review Dave. Funny, for some reason I've never really known about the different modes for this guy. Still great review, thanks for posting and keep up the good work.

  • Both the red dragon thunderzord and the assault team were package in one box : the thunder megazord. But it was release just a few weeks before the beginning of the third season.
