|DIECAST GUNPLA?!!!! This is amazing to me...What will it be called? GunMetal? Can't be called Gun"PLA". I wonder how diehard Gunpla people feel about this. I for one will love it and hump it. It's an RX-78-2!|
|JoshB of CDX spotted these in a corner and my traction beam was activated.|
- The Korean Set had DIECAST lions in it (Korean sets are all plastic)
- The Trendmasters set happened to not even be a Trendmasters set- it was a variant LIONBOT box!
- These belonged to the owner of Media-Blasters, the makers of the Voltron DVD and they had a very important role in the making of the DVDs!
OK, I nerded way too much as is evident in the video I made for CDX. Read the full story by checking out the article I did for CollectionDX.
If you want an in depth look at the two sets, check out this video:

|You'll see Hasbro brought back the same First Edition packaging from the first release. This new version of CJ differs in that the artwork shows his zombified self up top.|
|He's all beat up and covered in Dark Energon. His robot mode has the alternate zombie head with cracked horn. If you want to see it, check out the video below.|
Honestly, I really like that this was made. However I wish it didn't have little problems that a small $100 diecast shouldn't have. Problems like bad paint apps that are gone over by hand with a brush. It makes it look sloppy. On a huge piece, this would be unnoticeable, but on a tiny diecast, it's an eyesore. For big fans only.
|The box is exactly what you would expect from a high end collectible. Thick corrugated cardboard box with foil lettering and colorful graphics.|
|Again, high end packaging here folks. Super thick styrofoam holding all the contents in place.|
|It is a very beautiful piece that is mostly diecast metal. It feels good in the hands. From this distance, you don't notice much of the imperfections.|
|The G-5 looks awesome in this view.|
|The set comes with some alternate booster pieces and some landing gear which surprisingly is metal. I guess maybe not surprisingly given the weight of the figure.|
Here's my video review.

|Here are some line drawings of the upcoming GX-62 Danguard Ace. At this stage, many things can change, but at least you see they are already hard at work!|
Speaking of Soul of Chogokin, Golion fans will be happy to know that Bandai is in talks with WEP to be able to do something with Golion. It's nothing concrete and there is no official word, but it seems as though it will eventually happen! Check out this CollectionDX video of our trip to Comic Con where we discuss our visit to the Tamashii booth and more.

To my surprise, I received my Mattel Black Lion from Mattel, the final subscription piece. Havent had a chance to really mess with it but so far it has exceeded my expectations after having dealt with the other lions. I should have a video up real soon... yes, I know i reversed the legs in the picture!
