I still want a DX

I still want a DX FiveRobo.

Funny thing I just noticed- on that Korean bootleg's box, they use the helmets of the rangers from the later "Changeman" (1986), not the proper "Fiveman" (1985).

Yup. Now that you mention it, I do remember when we first saw that original Yahoo auction and discussed it on the old CJT BBS that someone else pointed that out as well. Good eye.

I'm thinking I may pick this guy up, given he won't require a second mortgage. But he is high on E-bay (sometimes $500), so I guess patience is the key.

There's one on Ebay now for $188 (+$60 shipping to the US) shipped to the US which isn't too bad, I guess, but I know the seller just got it on Yahoo a few weeks back for about $75. He's been doing a lot of flipping of JMs. It's the second Five Robo he's flipped recently. There aren't any on Yahoo at this moment but I'm sure more will turn up soon.

Actually, JM flipping used to be pretty common years back. I do think it's less prevalent now though since more people know to look to Yahoo!Japan than before. Also, the rising price of JMs makes it harder and harder to turn a profit.

In comparing this to the Korean version (review forthcoming), I discovered that the head on this one DOES turn. It was just really, really tight on mine and I was afraid to break it, I guess. I'll edit the text to correct this mistake.
