A few weeks ago someone on Micropolis came across an ipad iapp which was an assembleborg catalog and it was shortly after removed as some of the information indicated a december release and a website. The website is now up and you can order through it with shipping via amazon. That's the good news for those of us in the US, the bad news is they only have the first wave at this time. Good time to catch up if you've missed them.

They're releasing them in waves it appears. One wave per season. First are these guys followed by the Jarknoids and Doom Diver, Assembleborg Series 2 with Tri-Striker, Just this month the first Assault Gear Piece was released, I think more Jarknoids are after. There are also a bunch of exclusives that probably will not be making it over this way.

...If I can get this link working; might be a non-AB revoltech figure worth getting; a skeleton warrior from Jason and the Argonauts.

He does indeed look lovely. I wonder if those are swivel only joints or full ball and socket. It looks like the latter. Good price too.

Hotmitts, I recommend Japanese Ebay seller Zira28 for Assemble Borg. She has the best prices and is very nice to deal with. Unfortunately I know of nobody who sells these in the UK.

As you know, I fully second that notion Hypno. I might pick up some extra parts from the US version but at this point it will be 2 years until they catch up with the JP line where it is now. IF its able to make it that long. I'd also rather get mine from Zira28 than find myself out in the cold waiting for them to pop up on the US site eventually.

Hey Hypno according to my sources revoltech developed a new version of the smaller joint for just this kind of application. I'm going to go out on a limb and say the Skeleton is probably using it. I'm not sure but they may have put it into work for the Jack Skelington and Toy Story Woody previously.

These are about the best reviews available in my opinion: (Assembleborgs and other stuff)

The Tamabase has the best pix but they take a while to appear. Or is it just my shit PC?

I only recently realized that the Tristriker comes with a figure which integrates into the vehicle very like the Cyborg Rider set. I think I'm gonna... havta... get one.

Might be your PC or your internet connection as they pop up fairly immediately on mine even when there are a lot of images on the page.

Yeah the Tristriker looks really great. I managed to snag the exclusive ones but I don't have them in hand yet. I'm excited to get them though.

Thanks Hypno. The tough part is actually finding out when the stuff is coming out. We get the magazines here but often a month or more later so many offers are usually over or almost over. I guess it's just a matter of checking their site often but that's also hard getting details for stuff like that. Zira28's message board on FB is pretty good for that too.
