what an awesome piece this

what an awesome piece this is. those thrusters on the limbs, love that detail. you must show us more of that yellow one!

I've been on an exo-suit kick latey. the idea of a base frame exo-suit with interchangeable armor is something I've been experimenting a lot with Legos recently. Don't want to show off, but since it's relevant and I think you guys would like it, check it out on flickr! if anyone is a MOCer, I highly encourage you copy my frame design and put together one of your own!

Battle Riser Review is here

I don't know, I think I like the Battle Riser better. There's just too much red up top with little to break up the lines on this one. Plus, I'll take pincer arms over extra elbow boosters any day of the week. Do you know if sticker sheets were originally included with this line? It looks like Bandai was going after some of the modeling demographic with these (like every other company in this time period).

Edit: After a quick glimpse across the internet, it seems that these guys aren't too bad on the wallet...just...need to...get through Christmas...

I just took a quick look at

I just took a quick look at the current listings on Yahoo Japan. Looked to be quite a few going around the 3~5k yen range. You'd have to find a middle man, but that's a lot cheaper than 200 dollars.

Prefer the toon

I really dig the illustration style used for the cartoon. I never got to watch Machine robo. Maybe its time to track it down. We should had gotten this instead of the gobots show.

I never get tired of that OP

I never get tired of that OP for MR Battle Hackers. Too bad the show will never get subbed (the only reason there's an encode for MR Revenge of Chronos was that an HK DVD was released).

The pilot's name is Akira Amachi

So yeah,I've been watching the series for some time now. Akira Amachi here is your typical rash,brazen shonen hero for mech anime. We've all seen it from Gundam from Amuro to Kamille to Shinn Asuka but where these guys get a lot of time for development,I feel Akira's (insert your Akira reference here since he gets to ride a bike named Twin Cam Jimmy later on as a reward from ep. 8) character development is quite nice and he doesn't come off as a whiner..most of the times. From the first episodes,he was the first to wanna make a difference in ep. 6 while the Good luck kids were expected to take refuge in a hotel but in ep. 5, that proved ineffective because of spies lurking around the area.

Ep. 7 is where both Mia White and Patricia were questioning that they were being sidelined to wait for the war to end and not being able to get back home to Earth. Funny that this contrasts to TF where the Autobots need to find energy to get back home while also stopping the Decepticons,the kids of Good luck are stranded on an alien planet and THEY have to get back home since the Electronic Planet B-1 is already looking like its seen better days.

Akira himself is pretty much brash and impatient kinda like the Battlehackers but later on after ep. 8,he feels like he has been integrated into the ranks of the Battlehackers. The Battlehackers are more like shock troops or the guerilla force which is pretty interesting considering this is a kids show but then again,Revenge of Cronos has a lot of robo gore and violence so yeah,this one was more of 'You die once...GAME OVER'.

Though throughout the series,we do get to pay attention to select members here and there because there are many of them. Akira does team up with the likes of Mach Blaster,Garzack,R. Jettan,his bud Luke Stewart,F-1 Jack,Twin Cam Jimmy,Jet Winner Robo in ep. 13 where the Jet got a new head and the goof ball of the kids - Zen Ogawa and also Mia White (who I feel was underused out of the Good Luck teens).

At least Akira ain't angsty like a LOT of mecha anime shonens out there. He's funny at least and has some goofy expressions to boot. Overall,he ain't bad. The toy...I'm gonna get it near the end of this year,baby!
