Besides the Soul of Chogokin figureS?

I forgot about those lol. I meant in the Robot Spirits and Sofvi Spirits lines.

Got my Shrikethorn;

Quick review on Shrikethorn - although he stands shorter than Raijin it's roughly the same mass. His torso reminds me of the Ben Swolo meme. It annoys me a little that's he stuck in a pose looking straight down, and the tails only have 1 swivel each at the base. He has 7 swivels, but they're not nearly as useful because 4 are in the arms, and he needs to keep one arm down for balance unless you tip him backwards. I just now found the 7th swivel while typing this, it's a torso cut. Kinda cool. The build and paint quality is fine, no issues.

It's a decent vinyl but I think it's very overpriced for what you get. Main reason to get it is if you want to set up a Pacific Rim display and you want all the kaiju together. Unfortunately since it's a web exclusive I don't think the price will get any better. There might be a cheaper bootleg, but the hassle I had with getting my Raijin to stand prompted me to buy official for Shrikey, just something to consider.

Nice, can't wait for it.

Anything new with Tamashii's PR line? Still waiting for the Drone Jaegers, November Ajax & the Mega Kaiju...

Tamashii also didn't come forward with the Chogokin Crimson Typhoon or Sofvi Spirits DX Otachi. Maybe the attic'd the franchise due to some reason...? If so, it's a hard bummer...

Sofvi Spirits Otachi? Never heard of it. Are there any pictures?

^ yes, there was an illegal (since it had a no photograph sign next to it) picture of it floating around the net standing next to Chogokin Gypsy Danger, but I have no time to dig it up right now.
