Question. Are the Megaranger megazords exclusives? I don't see listings on Amiami.

Secondly, regarding the breakage issues of the Red Shogunzord, it really sucks. But I've been prepared. I suggest everyone shave a bit of plastic from that piece, and use Silicon Shock Oil to reduce the stress greatly.

Is it even a piece that needs to be moved?

[edit] I realise what that bit is now and that it has to spin on the spot to make the transformation. mmm, very worrying.

Blech. Grey paint is just so hideous. And I always forget how ugly Delta Megaís face is. Iíll just sit around and see if Mega Voyager gets announced.

From what I can gather, they donít seem to be exclusive. As for the 3200 yen versus 6219 yen, the former could be a mistake on that sign. Until somebody is able to translate the sign, we wonít know why it says 3200 yen yet the website says 6219 yen.

3200 yen is roughly the cost of Minipla sets (8-10 individual boxes) when theyíre not exclusive. This is Super Minipla though and if they were Premium Bandai exclusive, the 6219 yen would be in line.

I rather like it's G1 transformers type of face.

Yeah. No chrome makes it look dull.

3200 yen is the price for one box (here either galaxy mega or delta mega). The complete set consist of 2 boxes (galaxy mega and delta mega) so 6400, add the 8% tax and you have 6912 yen.

Too bad you can't preorder 2 sets on amiami...

Being a huge PRIS/Megaranger fan theses two are a must buy for me.

I hope we get Mega Voyager and Mega Winger next.

Looks like they'll have some decent articulation according to these prototypes:







Found at Bandai's Candy toy blog: http://bandaicandy.hateblo.jp/entry/2018/10/01/120000

I think these photos definitely sold me this set.

Finished building my Muteki Shogun. Good grief, it feels fragile. I've struggled with a few parts, so paranoid was I about breaking them, that I probably didn't put so much force into putting parts together.

I trimmed the neck/knee parts on Kumard and Gammer so that it didn't stress the coloured plastic. Unfortunately I ended up trimming a little too much from Kumard and now Muteki's knee is a bit floppy.

Yes, I trimmed the holes for the thigh covers to attach to on Saruder, but I still had to gingerly move the parts when combining to the point where I struggling to attach its feet to Muteki's waist. I'm still not sure how long that will last.

Having the assembled robot on my desk, I almost don't want to disassemble it again, which is a shame because I was looking forward to having a Muteki Shogun which had five fully-posable robots that combined into a fully-posable robot, but I also didn't want to risk breaking it.

God. At this pace it's going to be one a night. It took me 2 hours for just one.

I.hate.stickers.

Some are so fragile they ripped. Not happy about the sloppy stickers placement on the lower legs. Some are creased because of folding them.


When I'm done I'm going to take a group photo with all five pieces then combine them and then never take it apart


Maybe the other four will be easier





Maybe the other four will be easier


Finished white and blue last night. Today working on Yellow






Yeah. That's not going to fit.




I realize that the part is upside down when I took the picture. Still needs to be filed down



All. Done! Feels very unsteady. The arms work great though

I love this boy. His articulation is NUTS. But Im not gonna uncombine him ever again, even if I did add the silicon oil and shave plastic. Too scared!

And the best part? It scales really well with the Evil Space Alien figures 1

Not happy with the waist stickers. I had to cut and repair my mistakes.

I'm not thrilled with the stickers. For a "Super" line, there's no reason to have that many. I'm actually dreading building mine now. I was excited, but with plastic breaking and the stickers... ugh.

I mean, the gold chest emblems could have been solid pieces that clipped in, but they decided to go with stickers? Muteki, even with the added articulation, almost seems a step back from the other Super entries.

I can't really tell but are the fists on the red one backwards? I'm still waiting for mine to arrive but I have a feeling I'll end up painting a lot of the gold details instead of using stickers.

Ah. Thank you

If you don't use some of your stickers is it possible I can have them?

Just edited my post. I didnt bother with the waist stickers and straight up painted it. All the gold parts were painted on my build. Some stickers I did use. I painted my Shogun Megazord's face!

Waiting for the Ninja Megazord...

Ya know, maybe BD Labels can do a set for these kits..
