yea i agree dont think alot of people will go crazy over it since half the whole line was exclusives and only 2 were regular releases.i think only the people will want super shinkengers if the whole team became regular releases or something inside the figure will make people go nuts over them.they should have just releases the thing as acessories.

I wish Hobbycraft had Japanese model kits. All they have is WH4000, Star Wars and automobile. Most of which pre-date WW2. Not even so much as a gundam. At least they sell paint to customise BoA toys.

gotta admit, these figuarts are kinda addicting. i picked up another one yesterday, the base state of Fourze. So that makes my 5th one so far(gokai red & blue, Joker, Decade & now Fourze) I think I wanna pick up the Fire state soon, but if/when the Cosmic state of Fourze comes out, I'll deff be pre-ordering that. Cant believe i passed on a V2 for 2280yen..ah well.. =\

Just had my Super Shinken Red arrive this afternoon.

It looks great! I do have to say though the coat is made of very soft plastic and there was a slight cut/scratch on it... I was annoyed.. but! as the material was still there, I was able to smooth it down with my thumb and now I can't even tell there was any damage.

The shoulder pads do seem to have a habit of falling off (as one did in the CS Toys review), but with a bit of patience they go back on.

The Shinkenmaru is essentially the same as the ones that came with the regular Shinkengers, except the area where the disc can go is painted (unlike the regular ones, which I just found out can have the disc removed, but it just exposes red plastic).


I'm very curious as to what will come with the other Super Shinkengers in place of the Mougyu Bazooka... Anyone want to toss out some educated guesses?

Is it true the feet are diecast this time?

My guess is effect parts maybe for the others.

They might not come with anything other than the Shinkenmaru and Inromaru. It's not uncommon for something like that to happen.

*compares feet* Unless I'm missing something, they appear to be the same material as regular Shinken Red.

I've also noticed that the Shiba clan logo is much more accurate on his jacket's chest, compared to the logo on regular Shinken Red (and the other Shinkengers). It's smaller, and not as stretched out vertically.


Ewwiikk, that may be the case... I can't really think of anything they could package them with (besides the aforementioned idea of Shinken-Oh controls.. but that's not going to happen ).

Yeah there isn't much in the way of accessories outside of a few new extra hands that they could possibly add in.

I can see that happening if they decide to have them as regular releases this time around.

It would be nice for the extra accessories they included the missing Kuroko with the others.

Quick question, do we have an approximate date for when Gosei Knight will be released? I know it's supposed to be this month, but I've not seen just when. Always helps to prep the wallet for incoming charges.

No, it won't be sometime next week...or even this month.

His release date is in May, and according to Yokatta, his shipping time is the 30th of May.

This is because Yokatta need time to acquire their stock and send them out, although it shouldn't take as long as that estimate. His release date is the 27th of April.

Mandarake but it'll be a couple weeks before any recent ones or coming soon ones will be there.

Using a middleman to put in an order is best, otherwise you'll have to wait on the post-sale market and hope the prices don't just go up. Gokai Yellow and Pink for example were in huge demand and now cost an absolute fortune. Orders for Gosei Knight have already closed, so you'll just have to hope he doesn't become as sought after as they did.

So, I got my Ichigo, Nigo, and V3 from Ebay today (First, First, Next), and I have a question. I looked at the instructions for them, and it says 2010 China on Ichigo and Nigo, so were they re-released? Or does another country make their own versions or something? The packaging looked to be normal (explaining what a Figuart is), and I don't think my ShinkenRed had that (might be mistaken. And weren't these some of the first KR Figuarts?). So, anyone know about that? It's just curiosity on my end.

Yes, "The First" versions are re-paints/re-releases. Same mold, just new paint apps to match "The First" movie instead of the original "The Next" versions.
