3rd Party Liokaiser

Postby Subria » Tue Feb 23, 2016 9:36 am

Now I'm not really a 3rd party person. There are some nice pieces out there I'll admit, but generally they all tend to be interpretations of characters that you see many times over.

TFC's Hades on the other hand looks at a relatively obscure combiner from the Japan only Victory cartoon - Liokaiser, and follows the original alt modes quite closely too. It's probably unlikely that Takara/Hasbro will ever redo these characters in a way that does the original justice. I can see a version being made out of the current Combiner Wars moulds, but it'll be a fudge job really.

Pretty much all combiner parts were built into the individual 'bots, and there's a nice individuality to each of them, but they combine well too.

I've been attempting to build my G1 original up for years, but given he's a Japan only release (4 were released as part of the Euro releases, but without the Breastforce partners). I'm about 2/3 complete, but getting some of the weapons is going to be a pain.

I'm now tempted to go for this piece - and even at the price, it'd probably work less than what the G1 original goes for these days!

I think Hasbro may be releasing a Box set Combiner Wars Liokaiser eventually, it hasn't been officially annouced yet, but this artwork was leaked:

It will use the Skylynx mold for the torso though, so Leozack and Jallguar won't be done properly, but it will be a lot cheaper than a third party figure.

I love TFC and I love their Liokaiser. If it would fit my collection I'd be all over it. Looks incredible, really.

That's the issue, it's still a fudge job. :(

I know 3rd party KOs are normally a big no no but has anybody got this set? I'd love to hear any stories good or bad. I am considering this after a few other purchases come through. I was only made aware of this today on the subreddit as it scales very well with combiner wars devastator.

I've seen quite a few reviews and was going to get one myself.
If you think about ko's would you say mmc and fans toys for example are ko's of Hasbro and Takara and yet they charge the same price as Hasbro Takara?.
