    I just do not get it, all these guys have mad skills yet play follow the leader?

    Talk about a snake eating its own tail
    why try to remake a modern Gorilla?

    I get it that folks wanna make cool Gorilla dolls but these really ape the HXS dolls

    Are they just unable to make or form an original take? Why not do Orangutan?

    Although there still are cool toys coming out these days it seems like everything just keeps getting shittier and shittier

    How many times have we seen a king ju on Mandarake and said to ourselves, for that price I could just make my own. Well here are two guys who said that to themselves, and acted on it. That red hot style guy even did the bald head gorilla head, fuck.

    I got a winning email for both of these color ways. Super excited to get them in hand. All the toys that have come from PlanetXasia have been very good thus far. :)



    Getter Robo 1 and Mazinger Z versions.

    Got my Mecha Goliathon in the mail today.

    Looks great on photo, but ain't as impressive in hand.
    The painting has taken a beating when traveling and the vinyl ain't got the right feel if you ask me. Can't say I'm to pleased with it unfortunately.

    I haven't gotten a painted 1 from them but the 2 I own have a great feel to them. Very chunky and solid I thought.

    It does suck about the paint.

    Might be the over all feeling that is a combination with the paint. As of now, I would probably prefer a unpainted one.

    You should hit it with a gloss clear coat. Could get a can of the monster kolor if you don't have an airbrush.

    Update on my Mecha Goliathon situation:
    PlanetX saw my post here and contacted me over Instagram.
    He's sending me replacement parts for the damaged ones.
    He have been really nice about the whole thing and I'm really happy with how he handled the whole situation.
    So a big thumbs up from me!

    That's certainly very classy of him to do so. Overall we're lucky to have pretty kind makers and artists in this hobby.

    This color combination is so fantastic. And seein' it painted gives light to a lot more details I otherwise would have/have been missing. I'm pretty into this one.

    I'm happy to see that the horns on this one don't look like early 90s CGI polygons

    does this garbage brand have any creative ideas of their own?
    ...other than ones like, "you know what would make this toy way cooler, if it had TWO heads!"

    I think my problem with them is they take great toys and "make them their own" and in doing so, make them look cheap and unoriginal.
