should have been SoC

Would have been nice if it has a SoC version, die cast and all. anyway, it would be definitely worth the wait.

This guy looks completely

This guy looks completely incredible. I love what they did with the arm blades. I only wish that mattel had retained popy's ambition and artistic conscience. Yes, I consider banks of launching plastic missiles to be an act of artistic conscience.

I was never aware of the Popy version's subtleties until today. I had always frowned upon Daimos as a machinder because I was only vaguely familiar with the mattel version, which did not have arms that could accommodate the Popy arm accessories. I looked at him only as fodder for customization, and not as a whole piece. This changed when I saw the mattel version at a flea market a few weeks ago. I was blown away by his coolness, even though he was a beaten down, caveman-like dumbing down of a masterpiece. Today I saw a YHJ auction for the real deal, with swords. I had to go looking for pictures of Daimos with these blades, because I didn't even know if he came with them. Which led me here.
