What I don’t get is their character choice. It seems they’re doing what others have already done. ET’s selling point has always been niche characters. Now they’re doing mainstream characters that has been done many times over, except ET’s engineering and materials are worse than their competitors. Not sure how long they’ll survive. What is ET’s main revenue generator?

I agree. I only bought those from ET thats hasnt been done yet... where i had no other options.
I like some of their stuff, but I'm afraid when they go for combiners or advanced engineering they tend to fail most of the times (their first arbegas was an exception). Simple characters like kotetsu jeeg (with panteroid ), groizer x, getter robo, getter dragon are great to me (I own the first two and ended up selling their getters cause of the DC releases, since the dc have ships included). I missed but I would really love to get their robot junior, kotetsushin jeeg and gakeen (but second market prices have skyrocketed). Anyway I think they still have some hiden potential there, the red baron and mach baron looks promising. I don't like their hero action figures line, neither their future quest line. But the metal action seems good (their gatchaman phoenix seems gorgeous, unfortunately had to cancel it, this has been a tough year).

Thanks. Yeah, this is the only site I saw it on as well, but it doesn't seem to work. Everytime you register it loses your account and when you try to check out it says that a payment option isn't available. I sent them an e-mail about a month ago, but nothing. Not sure if the are legit.
Oh well, i'll keep looking. In the meantime I just got Gaiking. Really pleased with it!!
I was looking to re-buy a CM's Gakeen when I stumbled upon the ET one. I didnt even know this existed since I swore off buying an ET figure ever since the VF-2SS. Decided to take a gamble on it because the proportions looked better to me and the one I found was significantly cheaper than the CM's. Im very happy with it to be honest, doesn't have a lot of metal but its less wobbly than the CM's and the proportions, specially the lower legs, are much better IMO. My only gripe is that the ankle articulation is very limited. Im really happy to have completed my "Festival de los Robots" display once again.
