Alright everyone. This is a work in progress.

This thread is to be used for things that are more or less "one-off" or very limited. I will be, possibly Morgan or others will be adding to this over time to get things that have been posted in the Legacy thread, or other single threads merged into one conglomerate. This way things can be viewed easily and together instead of searching for one particular thread... or perhaps multiple threads over the same thing.

Like I said, work in progress. The Soul of Chogokin Megazord is the first and foremost that I wanted to get in here.

So start discussing!!

Tyrannozord27 October 23rd, 2016 01:55 PM

I can understand that fans wanting a screen accurate Daizyujin are disappointed, but those of us that craved for detailed and articulated dinozords this is a god-send! Cannot wait for April.

For anyone that has bought the Bandai Buddies line, are they posable?

Tyrannosaurus looks like he's taking a huge red dump in that pic :P

I hate to agree with you :005:

I wonder why all the poses we've seen of that dinozord have been in that position. Its not like it cannot be sitting up higher.

Taichi October 23rd, 2016 02:01 PM

LOL!!!! Is he constipated, relieved, who knows!!!!


No Tyrannozord... they're static figures. But they're highly detailed.

TheLastBlade October 23rd, 2016 02:22 PM

On the bright side, the first daizyujin chogokin may become cheaper.

Great point!

Qi iHuKam October 23rd, 2016 02:51 PM

Thank you for this new thread Tai!!

The one absolute best thing I love about this SOC is how awesome the tank mode looks, for some reason, I just have a real soft spot for that mode...

Nowadays mecha are just clustered crap, but Daizyujin...ahhh God bless Daizyujin, it is so beautifully made :puppyeyes:

andr0s81 October 23rd, 2016 03:08 PM

I'm just amazed they got the forearm position right since just about picture since the SRC came out has them twisted. While I can understand why the head is a little on the small side, why is the sword so damn huge? It looks like it's almost as big as the Megazord itself.

Diecast October 23rd, 2016 03:17 PM

I dig the slightly smaller head, larger back cannons, and big ass sword. Gives it a more ..."mecha" look, for the lack of a better term.

But I've been watching Robotech lately, so it might just be the frequent exposure to '80s anime mechs.

Taichi October 23rd, 2016 04:06 PM

[QUOTE=Qi iHuKam;5274070]Thank you for this new thread Tai!! [/QUOTE]

No problem!!!

Also, if anyone can think of other one-off things, or something that's not Bandai direct, PM and I'll figure out a way to add it. Like the Tokyo Vinyls... those will be added soon.

I kinda want this to be that odd, "hey, I didn't know they made that", type of thread... or something that's obscure. I don't want it to get out of control either... so there will be some things that may not make it.

livemrcraig October 23rd, 2016 04:54 PM

I really hope they announce Dragon Ceasar to go alongside this release.

Amen to that! I also have to say that Dairenoh was a beautiful mecha! They say nothing beats the original, but man Dairenoh could compete for the crown.

[QUOTE=livemrcraig;5274105]I really hope they announce Dragon Ceasar to go alongside this release.[/QUOTE]

I would rather hope that the Legacy Dragonzord becomes compatible with SOC Daizyujin. Wouldn't that be something! Although I wouldn't object to a new Dragon Caesar SOC. :)

Tamashii Buddies are essentially their answer to Funko Pop Vinyls. Albeit a more SD (Super Deformed) style. So nope.

My only complaint is the Godhorn/Power Sword is too bluntish. If the Super Robot Chogokin's can be sharp (which it is), then this should be too. Other than that yeah pretty much the Daizyujin/Megazord we've dreamt about for the longest.

Will never happen as they are designed by different divisions of Bandai. Being Tamashii Nations and Bandai of America.

Thanks for the clarification fellas. I am tempted to acquire these, they're kinda cute. But holy shit the recent legacy purchases have set me back a few paychecks.

Lets suppose SOC Dragonzord is a given. I wonder how they'll approach the price point. Allow me to explain. You get 5 combining zords in the SOC Daizyujin, all highly articulated and gimmicky, painted, etc. and it costs about USD $300. A SOC Dragonzord would be one just zord, how would they justify that price for it? Unless they add hoards of accesories (right size tail piece for Goryujin mode, candy-cane smoke staks, maybe even electronics), the two prices would seem disparate. OR they could price it lower than Daizyujin...:eusa_thin

Would you guys buy a $300 SOC DZ just because its, well, a dragonzord?

I suspect it would be getting the Soul of Chogokin Goldymarg treatment where it would be at the least half the price of SoC Daizyujin and $200 at most. Seeing how one more or less needs the SoC Megazord to make the most out of the Dragonzord mold but the Megazord is a standalone item.

Given the amount of diecast thats actually in Tamashii Nations products and the Soul of Chogokin line in particular, do you really expect a Dragonzord /Dragon Ceasar Soul of Chogokin to be under a $100? They'll justify it's price by said diecast, points of articulation and all. But yeah you are right, they should throw in some effects and the proper tail for the Power Staff Combination if anything to help fill out the box with some extra stuff since it is just one mech/zord.

But like i said to Hoodimus Zedd, Legacy Dragonzord isn't gonna be compatable combining with Soul of Chogokin Megazord. There is no other way around it. Especially since there is no Zord Builder ports in any BoJ/Tamashii product. And to be honest Tamashii Nations would be stupid not to ride MMPR train just soley because The MMPR figuarts were the only ones to succeed and did very well for them according to Adam Newman. And also because they've been evidently trying to keep that train going again after the failure of the Figuarts Zero Green Ranger.

I definitely don't think they'll offer the theoretical DZ for under $200 to be honest. Hell, I bet there will be plenty of fans that'll buy Dragon Caesar for $300 just knowing it'll combine with SOC Daizyujin. I agree with you 100% that Banda will wanna ride that SOC Dragonzord straight to the million dollar mountain.

By the way, what was the difference between the SHF zero green ranger and the regular SHF one? I was just looking at the aftermarket prices for the SHF rangers and its crazy, except the red rangers found a couple for under $60. But they do look a whole lot better than the legacy figure in all sincerity, and have way more articulation.
