The MINIPLA Collective Thread - All Discussion Welcome!!


Taichi May 22nd, 2017 07:21 AM

So with all the discussion of Minipla over the past few weeks... and no where to really put them... I went ahead and made a "new" thread. So here you can discuss everything pertaining to Minipla... whether old, new, super... whatever!!

On that note... to reiterate what I said in the other thread...

[QUOTE]Saw it come across my FB this morning and then AnAlpha from Tokullectibles somewhat confirmed...

We seem to be getting word that Super Minipla King Brachion is being released for 12,000 yen. What we don't know, is that there's some conflicting reports of what exactly that price reflects. Is it a set, is it just King Brachion? Stay tuned![/QUOTE]

AnAlpha May 22nd, 2017 07:31 AM

Naturally, following :)

Super Minipla King J-Der
Well, since this is a thread about Bandai's Super Minipla... It won't be only about Daizuijin and Dragon Caesar :) And news are also welcomed. Not sure if anybody here is a GaoGaiGar fan, but rejoice! Super Minipla King J-Der Announced! No release date. Too bad it isn't bigger than GGG, that would have been awesome and the best scale!



Taichi May 26th, 2017 06:47 AM

I'm not a fan of GaoGaiGar... but I'm ALWAYS interested in seeing more Minipla.

That's what I wanted, (and the original thread tried), so post away!! The nice thing is, with a mod in control we can add new items and everything in the first post... so it's a double use thread! lol!

Finally done, only took two months.

Bandai announced their next Super Minipla project - Zambot 3. For those of you who are not familiar with the Super Robot genre, Zambot 3 is a gattai (combination) mecha from the late 70's. It has appear in numerous Super Robot Taisen franchise and is considered the brother of Daitarn 3. Good to see more classical Super Robot appearing in this line.



No release date.

You can check out a video of him in action (with Daitarn 3) in the recent Super Robot Taisen V on the PS4:

Update on Super Minipla Zambot 3! They announced Zambull and Zambase and yes... tehy can combine to become Zambot 3!



Really looking forward to this! If they ever make a Voltes V or DairenOh... I swear man, I'll indulge myself into this line!

[COLOR="Red"]UPDATE (June 13th 2017): [/COLOR]
Another update on Zambot 3! This time revealing the actual mecha... For a Super Minipla, this thing is freaking awesome. Same size as Ideon!



Zankantou July 21st, 2017 01:56 AM

Super Minpla Zanbot 3 Now Official! [Nov 17] Looks awesome!



You know for a miniature model kit, this packs a lot of punch. It's almost like the Soul of Chogkin version.

Gerky July 21st, 2017 01:59 AM

I would seriously not have thought that a Minipla just seeing those pictures. It's and amazingly realised kit.

DekaRed Prime July 21st, 2017 02:12 AM

OMG, I just found this thread. I've been a big fan of these ever since I had some gunpla when I was much younger, then I discovered minipla sentai mechs around the time of Go-Onger and Shinkenger. I did post pics on here of my completed G12, they probably gone now. When funds allow, I shall definitely be picking up more of these, Super Minipla Daizyujin is top of my list I think :D. I love those pics of Kyurenoh, I almost got it myself.

Does anyone think we might get a Super Minipla Gurren Lagann, or would Lagann be too small? I'd also be interested if there were Kotetsu Jeeg, Kotetsu-Shin Jeeg, and Grendizer.

Zankantou July 21st, 2017 02:25 AM

DekaRed, I think the Super Minpla line focuses mostly on nostalgic Gattai (combination) mechas. But who know's.. Go Nagai's mecha's are always a big hit. So Grendizer, Jeeg, even the Mazinger's might eventually come.

ToyHappy's review of minipla Gigant Houou and Kyutamajin


Zankantou July 31st, 2017 12:40 AM

Super Minipla: King Brachion / Live Robo & Live Boxer (Sentai Liveman) are in the works!



Good, finally get to complete the Zyuranger side!

Zeddykins July 31st, 2017 02:21 AM

King Brachion is cool, but the Liveman mecha? AWESOME. One of my top 5 Sentai and some of my favorite robo designs. Def gonna purchase when they come out.

JohnnyX August 1st, 2017 02:33 AM

i seriously wish the minipla were more like gunpla in terms of one kit box to build it all. I hate having to buy 3+ boxes to make one figure for the price of a dx....

really wanting daizyujin minipla, but as it is now, sitting at $70 - $100 for a small kit with candy, is just not justifiable by my wallet

Infinitevirtue August 1st, 2017 02:01 PM

Yeah, the Super Minipla aren't the best value for the money but it's nice to have a fully articulated and transforming version of the megazord that doesn't cost as much as the SOC one. CDJapan still has both Daizyujin and Dragon Caesar in-stock though:

Daizyujin 4372 yen: [url]http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/NEOGDS-215926[/url]

Dragon Caesar 3325 yen: [url]http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/NEOGDS-229366[/url]

DekaRed Prime August 1st, 2017 02:30 PM

I love how the description says Daizyujin contains 5 [b]random[/b] boxes. If this is the case, how is anyone supposed to get the complete set?

Zeddykins August 2nd, 2017 12:31 AM

I don't mind paying a little extra since there's a bit more articulation than the DX releases. This will be nice for Live Robo and Live Boxer since their original releases suffered from being bricks. Also, the size makes it easier for me to display. Ain't got any room left for the DX stuff as it is...

Infinitevirtue August 18th, 2017 10:50 AM

Clear Zyuogher set:




ZyuohKing and ZyuohWild are actually really nice looking:


Not a huge fan of the Wild ZyuohKing mode though:


They are pretty cool. Wasn't a huge fan of the brick-like DX ones so I never got them and I haven't watched the show either. Picked up this set when it was on sale at Hobbysearch and I'm glad I did.
