Perfect Choro Q Mach Dragon

I saw this up on Yahoo Auctions and got into a bidding war, paying probably 5 times the original retail price from back in 2000 just so I could tear this thing open and build it. Even if it was harder to come across than the other toys in the range, I probably shouldn’t have spent so much on it anyway.

V B-Da Armor Devil Trident

A brief post to cover the combiner mode of Devil Blighster, Devil Hornet and Devil Poseidon.

Starting with a size comparison of the three in Armor Mode. Devil Poseidon is slightly stretched taller than the other two.

Ride Mode.

To prepare Devil Blighster for combination you start with Ride Mode, remove the arms and transform the figure into the Armor Mode head.

Devil Hornet transforms from Armor Mode with the legs and lower half separated. The head is not needed.

Devil Poseidon requires the most tiresome transformation as you partially disassemble the toy from Armor Mode.

You then have to re-assemble it for to form the lower half of the combiner mode.

Finally, the Arms of Devil Blighster are combined with the leg parts from Devil Hornet and the upper and lower halves of the combiner mode are joined. The upper section of Devil Hornet simply hangs from the back.

Size comparison with B-Da Caliber. It’s no surprise that Devil Trident is shortchanged in terms of size as it comprises of three robots while B-Da Caliber not only has four, but has the massive Chris Blacker which makes up pretty much the entire combiner body.

SH Figuarts First Order Stormtrooper Shield & Baton Set

Also known as TR-8R, Bandai cleverly sold variants with different weapons as Tamashii Web exclusives while removing the accessories that came with the normal releases.

SH Figuarts Ultron Prime

There seemed to be quite a bit of discussion on which figure to get when both the SH Figuarts and Revoltech versions were announced. Being a sucker for SH Figuarts and having been tired of the limited positions the clicky Revolver joints can assume, I naturally picked the former, which may have turned out to be a bad decision.
