Not in scale? NOT in SCALE!?!

what the i dont even

I didn't even know these guys were out. ]
They're where I got my avatar from, and where a good early chunk of my childhood came from, alongside Starblazers, Speed Racer, Marine boy, The Little Prince...

Yeah, something criminal is going on if these don't all lock into each other like in the anime.
It's "cool"... but not what it could be.
Still sexy as hell though.

This could still be cool.

This could still be cool. If all of the toys in set A are in scale as well as the sub/tank in set B, the bike is scaled up to 1/18 to have an articulated figure, and The Phoenix itself has a bunch of bells and whistles as well as mini vehicles (think improved Unifive version,) I would be satisfied I think.

Agreed, that would be

Agreed, that would be cool...but I doubt it'll happen. If that big Phoenix came with all the mini vehicles, I can't imagine why they'd package it with just some other scaled-up vehicles. I dunno...that just seems weird to me.

...Hehe--I have the same problem with Thunderbirds. I'm not into the numerous super-realistic "collectibles" out there; I want to play! So, while I love the Popy DX (Popinica PC-09) Thunderbird 2, the fact that it doesn't come with all the smaller vehicles in-scale that can fit in the pod drives me nuts!
