Reideen the Brave

Josh, apart from Dairruger,

Josh, apart from Dairugger, you have a dizzying collection of reideens! This seems like a great addition. I was a little scared when I saw the very first picture in this review of the legs bent for God Bord mode, but then I saw there was a clip on piece to aid in it's transformation. I prefer the clip over having it be a floppy mess. However I do agree that Bandai needs to perfect this transformation since it's one of the simplest out there.

My Reideen should ship in today, so that makes 3 Reideens in my collection. I have a long way to go to catch up to you haha

Is the mecha collection

Is the mecha collection version the one that was like the Gundam MSIA but for super robots?

No, thats SRiA or Super

No, thats SRiA or Super Robots in Action.

Mecha collection is a plastic model kit that makes a toy-like model when done.

DeQue Reideen

Out of curiousity, Josh, do you have the adorable little DeQue Reideen? It's probably one of the more obscure variations of the character, but it's a cute little piece that, despite being a mini blind-boxed figure, has a stand, parts for transformation, and both closed and open versions of his weapons!

I do have it - both versions

I do have it - both versions actually (regular and gold). It's a cute little piece.

This will be my first Reideen since childhood and can't wait to get my hands on this one.

As a kid I had the ST Shogun version and it was one of my favorites well into middle school years before becoming "trapped" (melted into) a toy car due to firework mishap. As a teen I bought a Jumbo Reideen at a garage sale and I still regret selling it 10 years ago.

I'm loving these SRC figures and I am also a little disappointed that there is no numbering system.

Might have to get one

Despite its flaws this is still a pretty cool looking Reideen figure and at the price I might have to get one eventually. I've always had a thing for Reideen ever since I was a kid when I used to have a jumbo Shogun Warrior version of him. Seeing this guy really makes me wish that I still had it along with the other Shogun and various Japanese robot toys that I used to have as a kid.

I think this guy is next up

I think this guy is next up on my list of things to hunt down. I've been putting him off too long. I'm pleased that he seems as good as or more likely better than the SOC. Which I was not thrilled with. All the folding back kibble and floppiness just annoyed me.
