The best add-on with the worst toys

Furaimaru was amazing on Gokaiger. There was one very cool episode (#27, I think) where the team used him to cloak their ship, a rare case of a team actually using a support mech to do something other than combine with the main mech.

Sadly, the unfolding gimmick has made it impossible to turn Furaimaru into a decent toy. The chest symbol in add-on mode always ends up being tiny, even on the candy toy. The Super Megaforce version sort of corrects it... but the rest of the toy looks awful. Furaimaru deserves better.

Is the ToySource reliable?

I was looking for some Super Sentai stuff and I found them for really cheap on the ToySource, but the prices seemed to good to be true. Is it reliable? I'm thinking about getting the Mobirates.

ToySource is a very reliable

ToySource is a very reliable site. I have ordered from the several times. I have had no issues and their shipping is super-quick.

The prices for their Super Sentai stuff are amazing! Just keep in mind that it is the Bandai Asia products. I bought the FuraiMaru, the Gojyujin and the Gao Lion. The FuraiMaru and the Gojyujin are identical to the Bandai of Japan release. I have not yet opened the Gao Lion, but I assume that it is also the same as the BoJ version. You get a free key with each one. Gojyujin comes with the anchor key and Gao Lion comes with Gao Red.

Thanks!

Bandai of Asia? I'm thinking about getting the Mobirates, is the Bandai of Asia version the same as the Bandai of Japan? And it's weird they only have Gokaiger stuff....

They're great

ToySource is run by the same guys as TFSource; it's intended as a way to get all your pre-orders from all lines in one place while using TFSource as a Transformers store to stock older items and buy from collectors. At least I think that's the reasoning behind it. Either way, I've never had problems with either site.

Great looking toy

I agree with Atom Smasher. It's a great looking toy that stands alone but the combination is lacking. Just a huge whole in Hurricane Gokai-Oh's torso and the Hurricanger symbol isn't as large as it appears on the show in any iteration of this figure.

Also thanks for the link to Toy source. The best price I could find for a Gojyujin so now my Gokaiger series is complete.

No prob! I am also using

No prob! I am also using ToySource to fill in the gaps in my Gokaiger collection.

This is why we need 3rd party Toku items

If only someone like Dr. Wu could pop up for Sentai and Kamen Rider fans... wouldn't a custom chest plate for Hurricane Gokai-Oh be great?

That is a pretty great idea.

That is a pretty great idea. I think the adult collectors would love to have that option. But I wonder if the demand would be high enough so that the products could be made affordable enough. The third party Saint Seiya pieces that are made to fix the inaccuracies of the Saint Cloth Myth toys are pretty cool. That being said, they are a bit pricey and I can live with the shortcomings of the official toys.
