guess they pay special attention to thier baby that is gundam lol! glad to see that you found out how great this line is........ i still cant fathom why the lack of abs in E7 and the increased pricing but RD is a great line. I just wish each figure was consistant in qaulity and number of articulation points....... some have toe joints others dont some have torso ariculations others dont....... etc etc......
I'm saving up for the Moonlight Butterfly Turn X, and I'm hoping to get an Arbalest soon....
Could the PVC to ABS difference in the LFO's be due to weight or stability issues? I know I've tried to get some pretty dynamic surf video poses out of my Nirvash and because of the size of his upper back the stability has been a bit tricky, especially if I want the feet to lay flat.
Also, would the transformations have anything to do with it?
Hehehhehe... Well I personally liked the final version from the TV show, but besides the funnels I didn't care much for the movie final Nirvash.
Also, for those looking for an alternative to the Tamashii Stage stands, I'm currently using a Revoltech Fraulien stand for my Nirvash and it works great.
For some Tamashii Nations speculation, I'm hoping the new series that gets the RD treatment is Shin Mazinger Z. After all, what robot says Robot Soul better than Maz? And if there is a Great Chapter coming up, we're going to need some new Mazinger merchandise!

Well finally got more info on what is being planed for Robot Damashii Side XX
Apparently that list that quin posted a while back were "suggested" lines, not upcoming..... The ones listed (although many are not clear) were based on a poll tamashii did. So the winner is to be annouced at an upcoming event in October....... no idea if more then one will be chosen. One thing that kinda pees me off is damn Evagallion being one of the finalist!! I mean what the hell, are the japanese really that infatuated with the damn series that they want yet another line to take it on!! Kaiyodo is doing a fine job with this line and there is no need for another one!! It would really suck if they are any part of the new lines chosen!
Wish they opened up the polls to international shores....... cuz if SRW OG is indeed one of the choices....... That shoudl win hands down!! Then i can give the ole finger to the ebayers of the Volks figures!! lol

Well i dont know if there will only be one chosen, but thats what it seems. It also seems that its up to bandai who will win, so, despite what are the actual number of votes for each line it really doesnt matter in the end........ though im sure bandai will not ignore the one with the highest votes, however they didnt bother listing the number of votes for each........hmmmm..
Personally, it would make sense for them to do the smaller lines like aquarion, to get them out of the way, and then concentrating on the bigger lines like SRW OG...... but who knows......not to long before we find out.......

screw eva!! it has been done to death what the heck could anyone even benifit from more evas!!! we need some new things in the works or lines that havent been given proper limelight like SRW. Soo poop on eva
Probably NEVER going to happen, but I would like some of the Kobu from Sakura Taisen, specifically the Kobu F2's, and the Atsuki Chisho Ni versions of the Jinbu. If Bandai makes ANY of the Kobu I'll die from happiness.
I'd also like the mechs from Dai Gaurd, Virtual On, Kikaioh, Go Dannar, Gaogaigar, and Gurren Lagann.
Normally, I'd say I've had enough of the Eva's; but as I would like to stick to a single series for my action figures and I since I prefer Robot Damashii to Revoltech, I WOULD like some Eva's here. But they can feel free to hang back till the next movie comes out.

Ha good one Q....... damn i guess bandai couldnt help jumping on that cash cow, then again they arent one to take too many chances!! unfortunately. im glad i cant see the pics here at work and id probably punch my screen!!!!
OK just saw the pics, at least V gundam is there thats cool! but *^%&%&% evas, though looks a bit better then revlotech and i bet the F&(&*ING leg wont pop off either when you try to move it. still bummed that it made the lineup..... and Zegapain, was that even on the list for recomendations!!
Love the new LFO though I always liked that (or two) in the anime, and the only ones that didnt use boards!
and the inevitable RX-78 2 rehashes, at least it seem they are doing all versions at once! So we wont have to be in awe at what the next special damashii release is!! lol
One more thing, whats with the stupid Bonta kun, that thing just look retarded and seems to have no place here whatsoever!!!!
Ahh no news on the tekkaman figures either........ ahhhhh..

finally a good action figure of v gundam and zegapain but I'm totally disappointed with eva wich is done to the dead by kaiyodo with revoltech and bandai with soul spec and some accessory like the carrier for the arbalest and the white the end .
