At his job, he slacks off a lot

When he sob's, he gets out some crack for a slot

That combination is bonkers!

While still a cluster**** at least it's more creative than say much of the modern sentai ultimate combinations of late (Shinkenger one probably being the most overdone).

Y'know, I actually find myself agreeing with that.

Much as I despite parts-formers as cheap, unimaginative and un-engaging (is that a word?), a cluster-f*** megazord CAN be appealing in my opinions depending on the overall look and function(s) regardless of how it is assembled. And in this case, Ultimate Giant Braver is a surprisingly satisfying cluster-f*** megazord.

Bad joke over. Good review, I had no idea these things existed outside of Bandai.

(*witty Crack Saver pun*)

I have to agree with you, siningy- Crack Saver seems a satisfying end to the line.

Yeah, the Wolf is a bit disproportionate, and the Dragon is simple-ish, but I like the Turtle and Tiger designs for being more vehicle than animal. (The Tiger's cannons double as missile launchers? SOLD.)
Crack Saver itself isn't too bad either, though I see what you mean about one leg being shorter than the other. I like the color pallet and how even though it has asymmetrical mecha attached to it, it remains consistent with its decoration in combined form.

Ultimate Giant Braver, while unquestionably a cluster-f*** megazord, somehow still works for me. I like the giant F*** YOU!! sword, and how the three scrolls are all visible and open at the same time.

I second the notion that, with time and refinement, China could pull out some really great combining robo toys. While the undisputed king of knockoffs and bootlegs, if they can just get away from those cheap temptations, they could turn out some really solid material in the future; definitely give Bandai and PLEX a [much-needed] run for their money in terms of Super Sentai-like toys.

EDIT: Gotta ask- where did you get that minifig lamia from? ^^

The minifigure is from the Collectible Minifigure Series 10. It should be the current one in stores, but they are blind packs so you have to awkwardly feel up the bags.

Nice one. While the other two

Nice one. While the other two are 'ok' (seems kinda traditional) Crack Saver (WHY??) has some very interesting design elements. And he becomes more like a weapons and armor upgrade to Heaven Braver (or w/e you want his english name to be) unlike Engineoh G12 and Samurai Haoh where the last dude seems to just add height and bulk for no apparent reason (I still love them both though). Overall I'd say this line is very satisfactory. The main probem is the getting them. While not exactly very expensive themselves, the shipping will kill you.
