Just sharing some of the latest additions to my computer hut decorations. Found most of this Kabaya series at the toy candy section of an Asian store on Clement St., San Francisco. Pretty good value for the look and playability. Body parts and fire armor pieces can be combined to a degree, but I think they look best in their default configurations.
So far I have had no luck in finding an online source for these since I'm missing the Blue Knight. Usually pick up Gashaphon figures and toy candy boxes on a whim when checking out the actual stores in Japantown, Chinatowns, and Mitsuwa markets while traveling www.mitsuwachicago.net/english/aboutus/otherstores.htm
I started collecting them in 2012 to the end of their line and picked up a few other Kabaya Candy toy sets, both new and old along the journey.
I bought my first set from Amazon Japan via Yokatta (who I haven't used in a long time just because I haven't needed them). The rest I bought through a Japanese middleman auction service that searches all the sales & auction sites in Japan in one go (That helped a ton). The newer stuff that was still coming out, I managed to get from AmiAmi or Hobbylink Japan.
Currently, the line has been dead for quite some time (2014?), so I think it may finally be finished. Volks and Kabaya have since worked together again and made this Transformers candy toy assortment (link) but nothing else as far as I know.
