Not gonna lie, I can see why Hasbro is so eager to take over PR from Bandai here in the states. The combination aspect is trending more and more towards "Zord Builder" style combinations even from the source material...leaving them tons of wiggle room to fill store shelves in the US with unique US designs.

And in that regard, I think the Cube Animals are the best blend of gimmick and combination we've seen in the past few years. Sure, they're blocky as all get-out, but the Minecraft style makes it work and there's tons of potential for new ways to stack and plug them together.

Beast Morphers should be interesting, but beyond that not all too thrilled about where the Megazords are heading.

I like the Slash form a little more but that sash part is just bothering me.

I wouldn't mind if my mecha didn't have an "X" chest and it became a "y" chest haha. Just take off that sash

There's some nice things about the 2 forms, but as a whole, they just dont look good. The changer thing was already mentionned, but i don't think it's the only problem. Unlike the Kyu Voyager, some of the trains work as legs, but not as arms. It look akward. And the Slash Form face look so cheap compared to the other one... But the other one look weird, so it's not that better XD

I personally don't see to much wrong with it, other then being a tad front heavy. But then I'll be keeping it in combined form anyway, it'll look good next to Cho/chocho Toqoh. It's the shoulder pillions that make it

I love seeing how great some people paint and finish their Mini-Plas. Using flat paint was genius.

It took me far too long to realise that Lupin-X's mouthplate is gold because it's his Patren-X 'hat' upside down, and vice versa.

Updated the sounds list slightly on the main page. We're getting close to having them all revealed. 4th Quarter listings should come around the 4th/5th of July. Though that's assuming patterns hold. Could also be the following week, as per last year.

Are the minipla non-clear version avaliable for pre-order?

X-Emperor set confirmed for 7/14 release like the X-Changer. I'm assuming/hoping that means Fire and Thunder will also release on that day.

Still no word on the X-RodSword.

I would assume it's also 7/14, but it could be later in the month too.

Update: XRod Sword is confirmed for 7/14 as well.

Looks good with the Lupins, bad with the Pats. He'll probably look good with Splash and Crane though if you have to have a Pats combination.

When you realize that Toqger’s Mecha wasn’t so bad after all.

They couldn’t have found some way to not have a pink sword sticking out of its foot?
