DX Samurai Kyojin Mogyudai-Oh

Its a hot mess.

I always question the "cluster fuck" feature of the current super sentai series. Not only does it look ugly but removes the joy out of playing and fiddling. Its just one piece of technicolored brick. I do own (and love) a DX Shinken-oh but I won't go to get the other components.

To quote Christian Siriano of Project Runway: "Its a hot mess. It's a tranny mess."

This series was fantastic

This series was fantastic (the japanese version), one of my favourites. Unfortunately the robots ended up a cluster fuck. I only collect the candy toy versions of the sentai robots (better on pocket and shelf space) and its the same.
I keep the main guys separate. Having 3 cool looking robots is better than a brick.

The candy toys are awesome

Not only do the candy toys have tons of articulation (usually--I don't know why the Kyoryuger candy toys don't have elbows when they could work an extending joint), but common peg sizes mean that you can create your own cool combos. I was able to make a "Mogyu Daikai-Oh", for instance, leaving out Shinken-Oh entirely.

Awesome mess

Got the whole set all at once a few months ago and I love it despite the drawbacks. The fact that it's so ridiculously over the top is why that mess is so awesome.

I do wish that Bandai would create DX versions of the candy toys.

I'm surprised...

I'm surprised that EVA didn't completely rip-out the toy (I was expecting him to say that we should avoid it like the plague).

I'm glad I've ditched Deluxe Super Sentai robots for Soul of Chogokin robots. PLEX designs lately tend to be ridiculous and over-reliance of gimmicks that blows. SOC prices does hurt the wallet but without the regrets once you've played with them.

I spent two years ripping

I spent two years ripping them. Isn't that enough??? O_o

What I said was, avoid getting the DX Mogyudai-Oh UNLESS you want to make the Samurai Ha-Oh combination. It is overpriced, lacking in fun, has crap gimmicks, and is way too big for what it offers up. Beyond that cluster-**** combo, it IS a piece of crap!

Yeh I agree with that. By

Yeh I agree with that. By itself its just really boring. simple transformation that takes seconds and the motorised features are a joke. I only got it because it was 2000yen. It becomes fun when you put together the Samurai Haoh (no matter what one may think of the final combination, I still think its fun to put together) but that requires owning like every otther toy from this DX line. I was already wanting to complete Daikai Shinkenou anyway so I didnt mind forking out a little more to get the big clusterfuck. But on its own Mogyudaioh is really boring.

I really do not like that the leg is just one big piece that can't be separated. although the US Samurai version is separated, it looks weird. looks like after this samurai ha-oh, you won't be reviewing the other giant mecha from go-onger (which is G12).

contact button on your

contact button on your profile doesn't work, so i'm doing it this way. I remember reading somewhere that you also have a DX Revolver Mammoth from the hurricanger line. If so, do you have any plans to review it for CDX? I'm interested in getting one someday and would like to hear your opinion on it first.

Yeah, this is not the best it could have been

The lack of a thigh gap and so much as a G1 Jazz-style slide-separation for the legs is unacceptable. Especially the lack of a thigh gap. Even freakin' Pyramidas had a halfway-decent attempt at a thigh gap, and it formed the ultimate combo by having the Zords loaded into its back! As are the tabs in the fists. And the lack of wrist swivels, though then again that's sadly par for the course as far as DX Sentai Mecha go.

That black bar between the arms? It's kinda there to give the effect of a yoke, but mainly it's simply to help the arms stay together and thus stay on better.

As for the clusterfuck base, what it is is an ornate, winged mobile throne, with a cannon in the headrest, and Kame and Saru acting as the back feet. They also act as sort of detachable subunits that can disconnect to harry the monster and give the rest of the machine a better shot, which is a neat idea. I think that's the best way to look at it, personally.

Other failings

There's other stuff that's wrong with this thing that makes it disappointing for the big expensive motorized mecha. There should have at least been swivel joints in the elbows in order to enable a full recreation of Samurai Ha-Oh's finishing move, as far as articulation goes. And there should have been gearing in the forearms to spin the drills - it's a simple mechanism and there's plenty of room. This is the deluxe, gigantic, motorized robot that forms the base for the ultimate combination, and it should have done more.

The BoA Bull Megazord does not really improve on any of these problems, but they're a lot less disappointing on that figure since that one was made for a cheaper price point.
