Robots with cloaks are awesome.

He should go hang out with D-Arts Rokusho. :3

good show

My wife and I both enjoyed this anime. You can stream it on Netflix. I have the Dann figure and want to get this one at some point. My gut tells me that the price will drop before it sells out.

I recently received mine from

I recently received mine from HLJ as well. All I can say is this is an amazing figure. The cloak was a bit fiddly to put together but once you have it figured out wow. It seems the latter figures from this line are FAR superior to the early ones. Not sure which # things changed at but from Sinanju(#79) on they have been pretty amazing.

I have both Volkein and Dann and it will be fun to pose them against each other.

BTW. I think Volkein is correct as I think as I suspect its more of the way it was probably pronounced in the original language of the show. Not sure as I have only watched the dub.

Now if only the El Dorado would hurry and come out!!!!!

RE: Removable Arm

Late in the series, Vulcan gets trashed and its pilot and his brother rebuild it, which mostly involves fixing various firearms to where the hands would be and mounting more missile tubes on the top of the backpack. I'm guessing they are just preparing in case they want to have a web shop expansion set that lets one switch to this configuration.

Oooooh baby. Loved that

Oooooh baby. Loved that sucker in the show, and it looks just as good in plastic! I may have to get me one of those.

Wasted potential.

I got far too frustrated by the sloppy delivery, schizophrenic personality, and loli-creepiness of the show. And I thought Dann was such an ugly design...

That said, Volkein looks so wonderfully industrial-fantastic — this one might have to be my entry into the Robot Spirits line.

All the mecha designs in this show are all absolutely fantastic, and Volkein/Volcan/Vulcan/Vulking is fantastic even among them. It's great to hear that this is such a good rendition of the machine.

Not too far back, I wouldn't believe that we'd see figures from the show.
