Intriguing! Considering that Nagano doesn't want to license out his designs for action figures, I suppose going the illicit-third-party-manufacturer route is the only forseeable way. Too bad it's not one of the more recognizable mortar headds, but frankly I'll take anything I can get at this time.
Hey Baron I'm surprised to see that you like these designs. Their about as far away as possible from your classic 70's style robots. They are cool designs though.
Yes ! Yes but sometimes in difference their is likeness...Its because each has something unique about them,even though utterly different,its the same with classics,each have a look or gimmick to their character,unlike other modern robots such as gundam and new transformers etc which all look alike to me,boxy thrown together scrap at random,these have true thought out design for arts sake,not just to try and make a robot look badass
.I also like the medieval look to them,the swords some are samurai,some iron age etc,antennae and almost biological flair to their intricate tentacles etc etc,each has a strange helmet or odd striped horns that make them stand out from each other AND the crowd,just like Mazinger is different from Gaiking,but both represent a whole.Im an artist I can see the creator was a true one,these are real art design,not a ripoff of every other modern robot,but truly unique from any other design Ive seen,true style. And thats why! LOL
Bandai just put up a survey on their Robot Spirits line. One of the questions was what new line of figures people wanted to see next from them. And lo and behold, FSS somehow made it on this list. It's causing quite a stir on Twitter right now.
I highly recommend you guys fill out this survey too, because this may be the one and only time we have any chance of good FSS toys.

I'd be amazed if Nagano allowed his creations to be licensed out into the RD or SRC line, especially since he's become convinced that he needs to wipe out 15 years of FSS history and designs and remake it, but we can dream!
So to continue the talks volks has a us webstore now. I just found an image from someone on ig that showed they had a display at nycc. I could not find any more info or reports on it tho. volksusa.com/event/2016animeexpola/item_robo.html The vids I saw of their 200$ mirage kit is it looks good even without paint. Maybe some minor touch up or painting the frame. I hope they do more kits. I'd still like to see an action figure for them or a gokin. I don't really want to mess with any resin kit.
Let us know how you like them. I want the LED, but I rather not have the napalm version. I figure if it was just a variation of the figure it would be closer to the $100 range, and I would bite. I dig the translucent armor. The shame is, I read it requires glue so you can't pop the armor on and off for the skeleton, which itself is a work of art.
KumaStyle.com (TJ): Oh definitely. I think that there are a number of times where KOs do it better especially since they come out later and have the opportunity to rectify stuff the officially made mistakes on,

KumaStyle.com (TJ): I don't know how into transformers you are but the NeoArt Toys Beast Muscle Leonidas absolutely destroys the quality of the original PerfectEffect releases and even has an Eva 01 inspired variant. I try to support the original when I can but I'm not

KumaStyle.com (TJ): going to sacrifice quality for the sake of it. I'm with you.
May 4, 2020 16:13:27 GMT -5
getterjehuty: yeah I agree with you. Quality should be high importance. I actually love FansToys products. and Yes, I do prefer Fanstoys over takara tomy.a bit controversial but I like the die cast and the accuracy of fanstoys.

KumaStyle.com (TJ): It's a fair statement. The MP official line has been a q.c. dice roll for years and I feel like MP-44 was such a big release that no one could avoid that elephant in the room anymore after it turned out to be a mess but I'm glad the community is

getterjehuty: Isn't the Perfec Effect Leonidas have loose joint legs?
May 4, 2020 16:41:22 GMT -5
KumaStyle.com (TJ): at a point where they are vocal about it... and the PerfectEffect Leonidases literally have a loose everything. Even if they're half decent out of the box they seem to just go to heck sitting on a shelf after a bit and unfortunately it's pretty universal.
May 4, 2020 16:42:48 GMT -5
getterjehuty: THis is my opinion but the issues of mp-44 are the knees and the paint. You have to be really careful or the paint will scratch. It is near the abdomen area side.

getterjehuty: I need to ask, KumaStyle. What is your favorite EX Gokin Fewture Robot?
May 4, 2020 16:45:29 GMT -5
KumaStyle.com (TJ): I agree on the issues and those compounded with how incohesive the aesthetic is compared to the third party offerings that came out around the whole time was just.... ugh. Ref EX Gokin: That's a tough call and I honestly don't really think I have a

KumaStyle.com (TJ): favorite in terms of look and quality because it was a very consistent line for me in that regard but if someone put a gun to my head and said choose now I'd probably go with the original release Getter Dragon. I think it has
May 4, 2020 17:15:11 GMT -5
KumaStyle.com (TJ): the perfect mix of homaging the original design but having Sato's signature stylization while the build and articulation were pretty tops. I feel like it has the most crossover appeal to those wanting something more faithful while not having any
May 4, 2020 17:16:25 GMT -5
KumaStyle.com (TJ): little finicky parts that will fall off during handling like some of the others do.

getterjehuty: Mine is Reideen or Shin Getter. I love their designs
May 4, 2020 17:31:07 GMT -5
KumaStyle.com (TJ): Yea. Shin Getter is up there for me as well. Probably my favorite visually but it's definitely not one I like handling at all anymore.
