I love these reviews of these

I love these reviews of these horrible, horrible toys of yours. They remind me of myself as a young mecha fan blindly buying up things on ebay I thought were cool and realizing only after I got them in hand how terrible they actually were. I should review my old kaiyodo virtual on figures one of these days!

Hahaha, thank you very much,

Hahaha, thank you very much, that's pretty much the ultimate compliment. I'll be able to keep this awful train going for a while, so I'm glad at least one person's looking forward to them.

I wish I could say when I was a "young" mecha fan. Unfortunately horrible toys are something we are all destined to relive over and over again. As reference please see Josh's CM Grendizer review.

I really enjoy these reviews

I really enjoy these reviews as I'd seen these toys on dozens of Japanese websites over the years and could never find any in depth information about them. It's also just fun to see more of stuff by Volks because they are such a fascinatingly weird company.

I feel bad for these toys

So much potential, all of it wasted...

at least for the most part, these toys have had a Kotobukiya Model kit release, which while THOSE aren't great either, they're better than these...

but stuff like Valsione-R? KoRyuOh? R-3 Powered? your only option is Volks and it annoys me so.

The Valsione R is pretty

The Valsione R is pretty weird. It has a lot of the same issues, but at the same time makes some changes that go a long way to improving the line. Changes that as far as I can tell were dropped for the figures that followed. At any rate, the R makes me pretty happy, which is a lot more than this pile can say for itself.

I might postpone that review until I can find my vanilla Valsione though.
