I know the toy has a lot of faults, but there's still something about it I really dig. I remember seeing dead stock of these for sale from Taiwanese sellers back around 1999 ~ 2000 and being amazed by how cool it looked in its Japanese packaging. The robot mode is just neat looking to me. The head in particular is really over-the-top with its giant mechanical mane.

I think the use of ball joints in Leon's elbows is pretty interesting. This toy originally came out in 1995, around the same time Transformers G2 was making use of the same joints. And yet somehow it seems out of place being used only at the elbows, compared to the Cyberjets, which had it everywhere.(Advenger from Goldran too shares a TFG2 feature: spinning/launching rotors, just like the Rotor Force.)

I'm looking forward to the Great Goldran review :)

Y'know, I really gotta say that I don't find fault with this toy's...faults! The combined robot is absolutely gorgeous and it has tons of play value. His halberd is one of the best weapons for such a robot toy. Everything about it is just classic!

Cool review man. I love the

Cool review man. I love the Golden Braves. Especially when they are all combined. IIRC they have 29 missiles littered all over there bodie in Great Goldran form. This is just over the top Super Robot goodness.
