Got to love this 80's Mecha show! The OP song is so catchy.

Dragon Caesar was delivered this morning. It's pretty nice. Getting it together wasn't always easy, but the result is that parts that need to be tight, are. The tail is super articulated, but putting it together is a bit time consuming with so many parts.

Stickers seem to be a bit higher quality than those of Daizyujin.

The Goryujin mode is a tad frustrating, as the waist doesn't want to stay together without a noticeable gap. Another tab would not have gone amiss here.

As a Transformers fan, the gold plastic bits, especially the Goryujin chest, is worrying.

Looking forward to King Brachion.

Damn. Dragon Caesar is MUCH bigger than the Tyrannosaurus. Ah well. Can't get the scale perfect every time.

Thanks! Over the last 10 years living in Japan, I became something of a hoarder. I'm trying to get my different collections down to manageable size, but these Zyuranger Minipla were just too good to pass up.

Well... glad to see a GGG fan here And yes, both price and size wise, this is definitely sustainable Hope they release GGGG down the road too.

Well, not just Zyuranger, the Liveman one is also awesome if you are into other Sentai's stuffs too. More to come!

I'm not even sure why people buy the DX versions anymore. These minipla figures are cheaper, more articulated, slightly more show-accurate and much smaller.

They are also cheaper-feeling, much smaller, don't display as well and are usually hacky in the transformation or just parts-formers. I collect both, but minipla is certainly no replacement for DX IMO.

Back in 1993, my friends and I were always blown away by how Bandai stuff seemed to be of such higher quality than other toy producers (Hasbro, Kenner, etc).

The same is true today. Bandai does good stuff, and anybody who sub-licenses does likewise.

The Super Mini-Pura stuff is fantastic. Especially when compared to other items of similar price.

DX is great. Minipla is great. SoC is great. It's all great. As a life-long casual fan, Bandai can do no wrong as far as mecha is concerned.

And Brachion's getting ordered the second it goes up for pre-order on Amazon Japan. None of the fence-sitting I did with Dragon Ceasar.

Gah. I know if I buy these, I'm going to be so tempted to paint all the grey in these guys silver. The grey is just...no.

Super Minipla: King J-Der Now Official Update! [Dec 17, Website Exclusive] I knew it was huge, but actually seeing it is insane~ Even Dragon Caesar looks puny there lol

Calling it a 'Minipla' is no longer the case. This belongs to the Master Grade category

Dammit. They ALWAYS do this. Just like with the Ranger Keys. "Oh, you bought the first two, so your OCD collector brain feels kinda obligated to buy the last. 5,000 yen, sure. 3,000 yen? Why not? 12,000 (over $100)... Urgh. I paid less for my first Perfect Grade Gundam.

And, yeah, I'm gonna order it. But if I'd have known this was going to cost fully half of what Legacy Titanus did, I'd have just imported the Legacy Zord line.

...no I wouldn't have. I'm still in, just because having a really nice set in such a convenient size is worth it.
