Having watched a video, now I see them moving (though it's hard to see with Tank... maybe just due to the video).

Got my HLJ package today. Yep....no Build Gashat.

So far I'm not seeing too much interest in the Full Bottle gimmick. They're fun to shake but that's about it. I was more excited to receive my Hurricane Ninja and Mighty Creator VRX Gashats to be honest. I think Gashats are definitely my fave gimmick since Lock Seeds.

I heard some postulation that HLJ only included the Build Gashat if you ordered the driver and bottle holder combo pack. Weird but highly possible. Sorry you didn't get one

If that's true.....DAMMIT. I originally pre-ordered that pack then changed to the separate items. Didn't get the holder. Didn't get a Gashat. FML.

I ordered the combo and did get the Build Gashat so that may be what happened. It really sucks that they didn't mention that that was what they were doing. The only reason I ordered the belt this early was to guarantee I got the gashat and I only got it because of random luck.

Is there any word yet on how they're going to release the Lock Full Bottle? Hope it's a promotion like the Proto Mighty Action X that you got if you ordered any Ex-aid roleplay item during a specific time frame.

Oh, that must be why I got the Gashat. I don't even like Gashats.

I personally think HLJ's campaign is BS. The campaign ad clearly states you just need to buy a Build Driver. There is no mention of the Build Driver and Holder Set. I guess they did it to control stock, as they probably didn't get much.

It's fine, I'll just buy it second hand. It'll just go on the Japan shopping list...

With regards to the Driver, I'm slowly taking to it. It is fun to shake the bottles and insert them like Gaia Memories. Hearing the voices as you put them in is very satisfying. I won't be hacking my Driver, I did that for the Ghost Driver then thought "Well....now I don't need to buy any Eyecons". But I did, and when they arrived I was like "Eh...heard the sounds before". Never hacking again, lol.

Also Drill Crusher's not a bad toy but I won't be buying any weapons that come without Full Bottles. It's kinda fun but the sounds of the gears/spinning is pretty loud, almost drowns out the electronic sounds. =/

Review of Gashapon Bottle Set 00 with Rabbit and Tank. Unfortunately I was wrong, as it seems even the normal versions don't have the moving liquid gimmick in the belt.

So anyone find it interesting that the build driver straps are the same ones used for the ghost driver?

As in they're the same colour?

Stumbled upon this... seems Bandai are doing another of those little cards demonstrating the collectibles, on this time it has a Build side and a Kyuranger side! I'd love to see an updated one closer to Christmas; Ghost's at least had all the Q1 forms except for Benkei, while this has almost everything blacked out... including NinninComic in the main picture.

It looks like we're back to crummy weapons that have little sounds (to be fair, I guess it's in line with the show.... still meh).

The Ganbarizing arcade game gives us a little preview of Nightrouge's henshin and it seems his changer will be able to read the full bottles, since it says "bat" during the transformation and when inserting the full bottle.

https://youtu.be/xoWdG8yxyjk

Hopefully it can read all the full bottles like the Break Gunner from Drive could read all the Shift Cars. Loved that one.

Considering that HLJ screwed me over on the Driver... I somehow managed to score the Bottle Change Rabbit/Tank Build. Haven't opened him, but it's a pretty box!

I can't wait to get that figure! I loved the W and OOO changing figures. I'm bummed they did not figure out some sort of neck articulation like the W figures have.

I actually like this figure a lot. The gimmick is going to be fun even though I don't plan on anything other than perhaps Hedgehog. Neck swivel would have been the icing... and I wish some of the blue and red were the same metallic as other parts. So it really could have been so much better, but for what it is, it's an interesting design. Something you don't see with action figures.

A Figuarts version is in my future though. I'm absolutely on board with Build.

I would love it if figuarts threw in some of their Iron Man hot rod red into Build and also some metallic blue. It would look amazing.

So I'm not sure if anyone else has noticed this, but the fullbottle toys all make slightly different sounds when you shake them which i think is pretty cool.
