Brilliant review. I LoL'd a

Brilliant review. I LoL'd a few times.

Why are those ankles so freakishly' pose-able??? Is something supposed to slip in there from another set? But the bits of die-cast would be quite satisfying, along with the great articulation.
I agree- effect accessory pieces are becoming the new thing for toys. But I would remind people that when they tried to make spring-powered effects- which in theory sounds great- you got things like water and ice blasts which never looked as good as they could. Still, love the effort here.

I considered getting some Medabots sets, but I could never quite bring myself to do it when presented with the opportunity. Like you, I didn't see much of the show even though I was aware of it; perhaps it was because I didn't want to commit to another catch 'em all/collect 'em all critter series. I liked the Metabee set where all the armor could come off to reveal the inner die-cast metal skeleton, but I heard it didn't have that great posing and the joints tended to wear out fast.

How do the limbs attach?

How do the limbs attach? One of the rewards of battle was receiving one of the opponents body parts (as I've recently learned). Is there any sign that they would be easily interchangeable with the upcoming Rokusho?

Edit: Also, do any of the muzzle flashes fit into the launchers on his head?

This figure looks pretty

This figure looks pretty great, but then the original Tinpet skeleton model kits were great too. I sort of wish this one had a full skeleton. It looks like the medal in his back is just plain orange plastic, like the Kotobukiya kit?

Do you know how the scale compares to the old model kits and to the Koyobukiya kit? It would be nice if they could trade parts, or especially if the newer items could use the diecast medals from the old kits.

This thing looks great; I

This thing looks great; I know there is already a Rokusho on the market. Do you have that one too and if so do you think you might write a review for it? I'm glad to see some updated Medabots toys but I know Bandai will never give me the characters I want most: Phantom Renegade and Mr. Referee.
