BTW, I just remembered when the last time I actually saw this Gundam was.. 2004 when we were shooting toys for Super #1 Robot at my house in Seattle! Tim's photo looks much better than the one I just took.

Oh, and BTW Erik, any chance you got a pic of the inner Gundam tray, or the instruction book contents list? Just trying to help figure out what other parts might me missing from the set Myles got.
You're lucky my boy. I actually took pics of the instructions prior to wrapping it back up and returning it to the archives...
Doesn't show the contents unfortunately. Mine have all the weapons in the slots. Two sets of tree missies red (long/short). 3 wheel attachments for the core fighter as well as a yellow fin and blue nose extension/missile, silver staff connector, sticker sheet and instructions.
You guys got me going here!! OK, here's the DX Tryder set. Mine is MIB with the unfortunate exception of a torn sticker on the abdomen.. F U C K!!! Anyway, this toy is HEAVY!!! A true thing of beauty.. The pics are from my iphone (sorry).. Enjoy!

Here's the SD, and the Basic Fundamental Clover was kinda wacky with all their bots in so many very close sizes, but totally different toy.
SD has more details molded
Do NOT mess with Diogia Basic Fundamental's chrome blingity-bling. Even though his chest details are just a sticker.
Sweet! The SD version is what i had as a child, i rembered that it did not have much diecast (strangly, at that age, i am already very fond of diecast toys ), that is extremely playable and durable, had hours of fun with its rocket punches, and it survived countless trips to the sandbox ;D too bad my childhood toys seems to mysteriously disappear as i grew up
WOW - I love how they have his name (Tryder, I mean) imprinted in the styrofoam. That's the only one I've seen like that, though most of my toys come loose. Ha!
So how does this Tryder stack up to the other Tryders in terms of size? Is this larger than the DX? Is the bird one the same as the DX with just the extra accessory? And the smaller spaceship / Tryder combo set? So many different sets, but I assume that there are only three basic body types (not counting the minis and stuff) - the ST, the DX, and the transforming one. Is this correct?

"the ST, the DX, and the transforming one. Is this correct?"
Yes, the official "DX" is kind of crappy, it's the one that was used with the bird as well. This one is only available in the "Kanzen 7 Henkei Gattai ("Completely Transforming 7 Combination")" as well:
What a cool set. Erik, man, you are very fortunate to own this!
Yeah man, I love it. I don't see them often for sale either. Odd, as the show was pretty popular. The pics I took really don't do it justice though. The whole torso is matte and gloss diecast and has that jeweled clear blue chest cover. Just a beautiful toy.
And, yes Dyl, I agree with you. Best thread of 2010~!!
