    Default [Toys] Soul of Chogokin - Japanese diecast robots

    Anyone here collect these toys? Here's a combiner robot from the series. GX-13 Dancouga, arguably the best and most beautiful robot of this line so far.

    Dancouga with his big, BIG gun!


    Even Decepticons are no match for Dancouga.

    toys are very interesting, but if possible, try different lighting set up.. will make the toys more attractive...

    I prefer the EVA series, EVA 3 and 4. They look better.

    Actually, I didn't use any setup at all, just room light. Any tips for me? Will a light tent help?
    Although the robot is diecast, I think my shots make it look plastic. Will different light sources give it more reflection, hence metallic look?

    Izzy: can't wait to see yours!

    TMC: Sorry, me no EVAs to take. Anybody can lend me?

    Yah, I was trying to find a good place for the flare. Didn't want it to block the barrel mouth.

    What about this version without the flare?
    Dancouga's DaiGun (no flare)

    hahha.....thanks for reminding about the Soul of Chogokin line, just went to check it out and they slashed the prices by 56%! Picked up Eva 03 and 04 as a result. Now time to see what kind of diorama I can make with them

    Add on: A lot more awesome than I expected. Wide range of poses to work with too.

    Here`s mine GX-21 Eva 03 Production Model.
