I still prefer the PX-01, all these restylings show that Bandai has no respect for us collectors during the crunch... People like me have been waiting for Daltanious ever since the SOC series was launched... Where is it ???

I guess nothing can surpass

I guess nothing can surpass the original Hover Pileder. Nice to know that the Shin Mazinger Pileder has a new cockpit, not just a repaint.

Wish I was able to get the Mazinger head to dock the Pileder when it first came out.

I fully agree...

I fully agree that nothing will ever surpass the original Pileder. However, I still cannot understand what the heck Bandai are doing! Why waste material on be@rbricks and other gadgets. Why don't they give us a Jet Pileder, a Brain Condor + Great Mazinger Head, a Duke Buggy, a Mach Patrol, and the Getter Machines?

Daltanious will be available in 2010. Besides, we will also have God Sigma and Shin Getter 1 as Soul of Chogokin together with Daitarn 3

Ya know... It is absolutely amazing to me that there is still no re-release of the goddamn head yet???! The price that they command is astounding (ALL PLASTIC!!!). Why Bandai cannot see this over the top demand for it I don't understand. I think that the re-release would outsell almost all of the others they have ever re-done.

I thought I had one as a pre-order on ebay. It was $85.00. After a year of waiting, sadly my money was refunded.- Thanks Bandai!

I have the first version of the Pileder. I do like the new cockpit. That was a much needed revamp.

Great toy- nice, heavy - deadly.

I wish Bandai would wake up and re-release the px-01x, as well as a new px offering: BRAIN CONDOR with GM HEAD!!!

The pins help secure the

The pins help secure the Pilder to Mazinger's head as well. There is one detail that is bugging me, though - the colour!!!

Although the Pilder is advertised as being red, mine turned out to be a very deep red almost purple!!!

Is that a factory defect? Your feedback regarding this matter is more than welcome.

That very same day I received it from HLJ, I opened the box, looked at the Pilder and put it back again, utterly disappointed not to say disgusted with what I had bought.

Nothing compares to the original Hover Pileder PX-01.

It's not a defect - it's a very burgundy color, but that's how it is depicted in the new mazinger anime I think.

I thought Bandai re-issued

I thought Bandai re-issued the original PX-01 and the Head, a couple years ago, and wasn't it also solicited as a set? I remember seeing these a few years back on BBTS and HLJ while i was ordering other stuff... now disappointed if it actually came out again.

Hi all, I saw both Hover

Hi all,

I saw both Hover Pileders on display at a local toy store, and the PX-04 is burgundy in shade.

Great ideas for Bandai to re-release the Mazinger head, as well as hopefully producing a Jet Pileder, Brain Condor, Duke Fleed's buggy etc. Who can convince Bandai for us collectors?

I still think the perfect SOC/Popynica would be an Eagle Fighter from Dancougar. It would be able to be display in all three modes including as Dancougar's head (with light up ups maybe). Of course the robot would be much more articulate than the tiny one that came with the SOC GX-13.

By the way, Josh: "Pilder" = Engrish for "piloter", as in the device needed to pilot the robot. Just like "Scrander" is supposedly Engrish for "scrambler"...

I wonder if anyone has used

I wonder if anyone has used a japanese toy as a weapon? some of this stuff is already insanely sharp and then I get this Pileder and I am once again amazed. I LITERALLY put my BLOOD, sweat and tears into this hobby. I'm still angry at Goshogun's weapons for making a coin slot in my palm while trying to push it through his fist to hold it. Nothing says "Man" like a scar from a metal toy haha

The display base

I wish the display base for this thing looks like Mazinger Z's "crown" just to add a bit of realism, I guess?
