Check here for the full STS '19 displayhttps://www.weibo.com/ttarticle/p/show?id=2309404361137524201971
>>7503552Thats a really incredible display. Thanks for the link!
no exclusive this time round for STS?
>>7503547Managed to grab a preorder for echo for $15 from an ebay auction from a user with thousands of feedback. Pretty excited about that>>7503550That looks fucking amazing>>7503552Is there going to be a black version of the queen? Are all those aliens the same? Is the skull variant a feature of the existing ones, or is that a new mold?
>>7504013Its the normal xeno, yeah. All the same mold. The queen could come in more colors down the road if she sells well. There still look to be a ton of xeno colors on the way.
Echo is actually a female
>>7507792Hmm. Are her eggs round or boxed-shaped?
Were both of the big boys supposed to come with small animal friends, or just the hippo? I'm liking rhyden a lot more than I thought I would, but there's a definite lack of tiny cleaning birds or frogs.>>7507792That bio is pretty fucking metal.
>>7508550Also picked up the wartale moma, and he holds together a lot better than my first one.
>>7508550Yeah, the bird and frog only come with the hippo
>>7508605Looks like I'm gonna have to double dip. Oh no, someone stop me.
>>7508649There's a top of a key looking thing that goes on top of Rhyden along with some studs that go into the side but yeah no little buddies like the hippo.
I wasn't really sold on the Jungle Dio before buying, but now I think he looks amazing.
>>7511318This is probably my biggest preorder month ever with a good 300+ coming by the end of april, and this goddamned parrot is easily what I'm most excited for.
>>7503550Since they have the Avengers license now, wouldn't it be cool if they do a Tesseract storage box?
>preorder>Release date: April 2019>April is almost gone>first ever preorder>just my luck
>>7513145PO from where? It just came out in China last week.
>>7513145Preordered mine from Hobby Link and it just got in and shipped out today.
Blue Armor (The SWAT Rhyden repaint) is a Xiaomi shop special like Computer JoJo and is already on sale there today. (https://www.xiaomiyoupin.com/detail?gid=106742)
>>7514410Did Coder JoJo make it onto the official tmall shop? I can't remember. Anyway resellers on world.taobao.com are starting to stock Blue Armor, you probably need to go through them instead of the Tmall shop if you want it.
>>7513679I've ordered from HLJ before. I guess I was just unlucky in who I chose to go through.
>>7514748>>7514757Damn 4chanx. Sorry for the double post.
>>7514410Fuck, I need this right now. You will believe Rhinos can fly.
https://www.weibo.com/5537333601/HrIPeoMqnStop motion promo featuring Blue Armor
>>7514413Having trouble finding anyone selling it.
>>7517290Yeah it was just released over the weekend, give it a week or two for the Taobao sellers to get it.
>>7513145Weird. Hobby Search didn't send a payment request, it was just sitting there waiting for it, so I did that. We'll see how long it takes them to ship it .
>>7520194Interesting. Did you do that?
>>7520911somebody else's custom. I realized Dio is a good platform to customize
Got the bird in and its incredible. The clear plastic is gorgeous and the articulation on on a whole different level. Maybe the most attractive looking box form as well. I'll post some pictures once my move is over with but I'd put it at the top of all the boxes so far.
>>7521418This is one of those things where I liked every sentence even more than the one before it. Golden week needs to be over already so hlj can ship my birb.
>>7521475HLJ had him? All I see there is the Dio cases.
>>7520194That paint, tho
>>7521570 HLJ is where I got mine. Must of sold out.
I must be missing something because I don't understand the purpose of the clear plastic card that's in the instruction packets.
>>7522583If you fold it the way the instructions show and put it inside the box, then put the figure inside the plastic insert will act somewhat like a spring and help push the figure out of the storage box when you open the door.
>>7522714ah okay cool, thanks.
Oh man I love these colors from this picture Stryker posted on Twitter. I want this so badly.
>>7524233>Transparent orange base color>silver and black highlights>blue flame pattern>Ghost D09 moldI swore to myself that I wasn't buying anymore Dio recolors, but I NEED this ASAP!
>>7524300Just noticed it has DIO 2.0 pegs on the hip armor so its the updated mold.
>>7524233Holy fuck, Stryker, if you're listening, we need this Ghost Dog. Please.Also, you have good taste in manga.
I finally got my iceqube. The heads are a little wonky, but it's a really fun set.
>>7525197>wonkyCould you elaborate?
>>7526150They rotate more than turn, and that swivel is at the very top of the head, so it can look a bit weird. Also, the heads look a little sunken into the neck unless you actually have them look up slightly, I wish the grey piece on the back of the neck extended up like half an inch.
I missed getting a neon blue delta for my neon blue group. Think they'll be back in stock ever?
>>7527392I think Stryker pointed out in that one thread that they want to keep limited colors limited, so it's unlikely??
>>7527438Well shoot. Didn't Dio go in and out of stock every few months? Or am I misremembering?
>>7527727Stock definitely fluctuates. I feel like you could find it with some digging on Taobao.
>>7524233Dorohedoro Mega Box?
>>7528312Dammit Japan your holiday is over, gimmie the bird.>>7528323Holy shit.
>>7528343How many years have you been waiting to use that gif?>Holy shit.What?
>>7528344>>7528340The translucent orange is giving me big ice planet/orange transparent chainsaw vibes.>>7528345It's a very impressive pose.
>>7528358>a very impressive pose.I know! It's easily the most expressive Box since Dio. I can't wait to get mine so he can hang out with Getty and my yellow Dio troop.
>>7528344>>7528340I want this so badly I'm gonna lose my shit if its not available at some point. Between this and the bird the line just keeps getting better and better. Also, my SWAT Rhino is on the way.
>>7528340>>7528344Goddamit! This one had better pop up on Amazon or something!
>>7528340>>7528344If Stryker doesn't make this a normal release I might throw up.
remember to grab those dios right now before the revised version arrive. you've been warned.
>>7528693Way ahead of you. But yeah, everyone should be snatching stuff up. Same for JOJO at some point here too as there is a 2.0 for him as well. If there is anything you've been looking at for months wondering if you really want it or not, your last chance might soon be approaching.
>>7528494Where did you order? I'm new to these but that SWAT Rhino will be my first purchase if I can find him.
>>7529164Got it from here: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=592788269483You can either set up a Taobao account or just go through a middleman service. I use 42Agent when I go through a middleman. I figured out how to use Taobao but the last time the packaging was almost wrecked so if its something exclusive I care about I just fork over the extra cash for proper packaging done by middlemen. Here is the picture they sent me today of my order.
Jojo establishing his dominance
>>7529240Wait a minute...
>>7529246>Let's talk about this!
>>7529249Is this vore?
>>7529186Life saver. Thought I'd never see this item up for grabs. Thanks man much appreciated.
>>7529359Always happy to help. The Beastbox general is probably the nicest of all the generals I've been in. Although I probably just jinxed us now.
>>7503542What a fucking joke. These look like shitty transformers that just all turn into a box.You know you have crappy toy idea when Rock Lords is better than it.
>>7528693>>7529154What does that mean?
>>7529539Had a good giggle.>>7529543It means that soon they will only be producing DIO and JOJO 2.0 versions and will not be redoing all the previous colors.
>>7529606FUCKI haven't even decided which ones I want yet
>>7531135collect 'em all
>>7531135No word yet on 2.0 versions of Delta or Moma, so those should be fine for now. Just wanted to give people the heads up that if you've been staring at some version of DIO for a few months not sure if you should get it or not, there will probably be no more of them ever made so once they run out of stock its all over. DIO 2.0 should be on the way here soon and we already saw the mold for the JOJO 2.0
>>7528340Wtf... Which variant is this ?
>>7528344>>7528340>>7524233I love how the spots look like magma
>>7531527Magma or scales. Possibly magma scales.
I dont have any of these yet but the parrot has made me want to pull the trigger. So i'm about to order a bunch of these off hobbysearch since they seem to have a decent amount in stock. The only ones i'm definitely getting are the parrot & the camoflage dio. Are there any others you anons who collect these recommend i pick up at the same time from the ones currently available?
>>7531626They're all pretty good. Jojo seems divisive but I personally love the shit out of mine.
>>7531626Literally all of them are good in their own way. The penguins are also godtier in my opinion.
>>7531655Thanks for the input, i just added the penguins to my order.>>7531643>Jojo seems divisive but I personally love the shit out of minewhats the supposed problem with that one? i was thinking about ordering the camo johnny.
>>7531626>>7532584The penguins are cool, but delta is easily my favorite of the current lot.
Also holy crap I just realized rhyden's tiny horn is geared to her eyes, you can make them angry by folding it down.
>>7532698>herIf it has horns its a male, hippos are female
>>7532584Mostly people complaining that the hands aren't articulated. I love all my Jojos.The camo Jojo is especially good too. He's a famous rapper you know.
I thought these were actual repaints coming but apparently they're just customs. Still cool though, I'd like to see more colors out of the bird mold.
If they redid Echos head to be an owl i would get that.
>>7534916I would love if they occasionally released crazy color schemes like this.
Echoblaster won me over, easily my new favorite in the line.
>>7535372How did they change the color of the clear parts though? Recast?
>>7535940>>7535946Beautiful. I wasn't interested when we first saw the protos, but the translucent wings and general aesthetic won me over. What's the best place to score him (ideally speedily) right now?
>>7536090On AmiAmi right now. Pick EMS shipping and you'll likely have it before this time next week. If you want cheaper shipping you can wait for BBTS to get it in.On another note I got my SWAT Rhino and he's fantastic. Colors and tampos are so crisp and fantastic. I was one of those people who was almost totally disinterested in the Rhino and Hippo and now I adore these bulky dudes.
>>7535372source? I would like to see more pictures of this event.
>>7536084>>7536663Stryker retweeted him, from his twitter he apparently did the CAD design work for echoblaster?https://twitter.com/U_shin_0604/status/1127042519504547840>Yes, both molding color is yellow. It was easy to paint because I got a test shot of runner state.
>>7536710Really amazing customs. Sure does help to be the actual designer of the thing, lol.
My stack of beast box containers is getting so big I'm not sure how to continue stacking them. I'm a little worried that the clear plastic legs on the bottom are absorbing a lot of weight and could begin to warp or snap. I'm not seeing any evidence of that happening yet, but its a small concern.
>>7537469I'd hazard a guess that they're fine, since the weight is evenly distributed among the four posts.
>>7537469Literally wat. They're plastic and tiny. Those boxes wouldn't show signs of stress if you stacked them twenty high. If they we're diecast maybe you would have something to worry about. Have faith that Stryker doesn't use absolute shit materials, which is the only way stacking them four (only four!) high might be a problem.
>>7538488Clear plastic is known to be more brittle and prone to cracking or breaking, and all the boxes are made of clear plastic. When I pick up my whole stack its actually pretty heavy. Not heavy as in I'm struggling at all, just heavy enough that I'm a bit worried. I just don't want to break anything is all. But if something does explode I guess I can end up mentioning it here.
>>7538531Maybe try only stacking them 2 or 3 high if you're worried. Takes up more space, but would put your mind at ease.
>>7538531Clear plastic isn't necessarily any more fragile than any other, it has to do with specific mixes and types of plastic. I have clear toys that I could hurl against concrete walls all day without breaking, and ones that will crumble if I closed my hand around them a little too tight. It's all about the specifics.
clear box are cheap anyway. so no big deal
Received my Blue Armor too
He has more clear, dark-green tinted parts than I thought.
Did you know that SWAT teams are known as "Flying Tigers" in Chinese?
>>7541267>SWAT Rhino>Lost Planet SWAT>Zaku GashaponAre you me? Glad you're liking it!
>>7503542Flame Jojo and the fire department Moma are on sale on BBTS right now if anyone's been wanting to get them a bit cheaper.
>>7541273>mfw i realize I actually own that MFT swat setWell shit, I thought I was safe from the taobo forbidden fruit, but they finally got me.
Oh yeah forgot this pic. I'm glad they included Rhyden's original turnkey, it resembles a pair of handcuffs.
>>7541530The only reason the cat is staying still for the photo is because the birb boxes look like food
>>7541541>when yer pal says be there or be square and ye didny go
>>7541524nice pussy and toy shelf at the back. mind showing the shelves?
>>7542019I'm just reposting them from Stryker's Twitter feed.
Yellow bird boy should be dropping soon as there is a fun little video promoting him on Strykers twitter.
Echo is in the Amazon store now, while Rumble and the SWAT Rhino have both been added as pre-orders to BBTS.
>>7544997Good eye on Echo being on Amazon. Going to need to watch BBTS to see when Rumble can be ordered, easily the better color choice but still gotta get both.
>>7545178Scale with a nendo.
>>7545183Living the fucking dream.
>Paid for birb well over a month ago>Starting to get nervous that it got lost in no-tracking hell>Check shipping date: 11 days ago>What the fuck, HobbySearch?
>>7547154SAL. Not even once.
>>7547178>>7547228>SAL, not even onceYeah, I chose SAL because I didn't want to double the price of the item.
>>7547324in hobbysearch's defense, they do tell you that ur fucked.
>>7547324I totally get that its just that SAL packages are treated like shit and can take a month or more. Usually feel the same way which is why I wait until I'm gonna buy a bunch of things and then just ship EMS.
Is Vanguard's colors based on some RL organisation's uniform too?
>>7547939I just assumed Vanguard's color scheme was based off of the US Coast Guard. I mean, he's a rescue bot, right?
>>7547883>which is why I wait until I'm gonna buy a bunch of things and then just ship EMS.This is usually tough to do since it requires the perfect confluence of release dates and in-stock items for all the stuff you want. Probably a better idea to check out HLJ, their Private Warehouse feature lets you stockpile stuff for up to 2 months then just pay one EMS charge. Using this model, I only pay for shipping six times a year, and each time it's only around 5k, which is much less than if I'd individually shipped everything in it. This also takes the stress out of buying small items, since they basically add nothing to this shipping charge.Just something to consider.
>>7548261Thanks for the advice. I did this for the first time just recently when I bought a ton of Cavico models and Beastbox stuff. Worked out really well.
>>7547154Its not just you. I ordered mine EMS and its been 12 days so far (they took my payment 10 days ago) and it only just changed status to 'shipping' on the site, I still havent got a shipping notice or tracking number. Hobbysearch has never been this slow for me ever. I just want my damn bird.

Just in case anyone is looking, someone on ebay is selling the DIO Mahjong three pack set!I already have mine, but it's there for purchase. BBTS is out
https://www.weibo.com/5537333601/HvcSq2A0252toys teamed up with a Japanese designer to create a soft-vinyl of JoJo. Only 60 sets will be made. Their Tmall store will be putting it up 20+ of these over 23~25 May, FCFS
>>7550117Fuck, this is rad! I've loved Touma's sculpts for years, and his chunky angles work perfectly with Beastbox. I want it, but with such limited numbers, I know I don't have a chance.
I FUCKING ORDERED THE CUTE PENGUINS AND IM SO EXCITED BUT FUCK RSAL HOLDING SHIT UPBy the way virgin to the line.
So... this is my echoblaster. Recieved by SAL from hobbysearch. How fucked am I ? The tail and the stand are both broken.
>>7550850>slow>no tracking>smashedIf you can tolerate SAL, you might as well learn Taobao.
>>7550858I've been using SAL for 10 years and never had any issues. I can wait for two weeks for my toys. I'm not from the US though so it may take less time.
>>7550117There is no way I have a chance at this, but I might try anyways. I'd kill for one of these.
>>7550850Holy shit dude. Maybe contact hobby search and prostrate yourself before them for a new one. Shit sucks, dude. Sincerely sorry for your loss.
>>7551619I hope he did so before an anon suggesting and posting the image online.Remember how /toy/ fucked up (rightly so that time) figma Mikasa anon after he dropped it from window ledge and anons reported it to GSC to not send him a replacement since his claim of "arriving broken" will be a false claim, with his window photos attached?
>>7551990Different case, that anon broke his, this one's due to the shipping. I do wonder if there's a clause/disclaimer somewhere about SAL in their ToS though.
>>7550117best of luck to me too!>>52toys official shop giving out iron man colorway storage box for ordering iron man
>>7550850Fuck, that sucks my dude. I rarely ever have problems with SAL but just recently I had a kit (Super Minipla 2 pack) come in absurdly mangled. I was super scared about it being broken, but aside from some very warped sprues and a few pieces popped off of them, everything was fine. And after it survived all of that, I was the one who broke a piece, d'oh.
>>7551990>>7552276I did contact them yesterday about it, but they basically told me to get fucked. That's more or less what I expected, but yeah, not so happy about it since it's probably the best beastbox yet.
On the Tmall shop, Ironman is on sale and >>7552258There's 5~6 hours till Rumblebeats is on sale, first 300 sales will receive a free clear box.
>>7552276>>7552937You should've used registered SAL, it's just few dollars more and you get insurance.
>>7552950The problem is, they don't offer it. Also, I did make a mistake. The shipping was "ePacket light", or whatever this is supposed to be. It was either that or EMS, which I'm not against using, but the problem is I get a fuckload of taxes using that, and quite frankly, it's not that fast.
>>7552959>The problem is, they don't offer it.They do, I buy from them them as well.>>https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/faq/101#shprsal
>>7552963Mh, that's weird, because I would have used it, if i'd got the choice. Maybe they don't offer it anymore to my country ? I know mandarake doesn't since 2017
>>7552982>Maybe they don't offer it anymore to my country ? I know mandarake doesn't since 2017They should've said in that case...maybe try to email about them about that?
>>7520194THIN YOUR FUCKING PAINTS
>>7547939Standard rescue team colors
>>7552945Thanks for the heads up, friend. Just put an order in now. It'll be nice to get a free box and not have to order an additional one. Now that we have some finalized pictures a little detail that I really like is the metallic flakes in the black plastic for Rumble.
>>7553724I adore the frosted white clear wings, but other than that I'm not feeling this color as much. I hope Striker brings out many more bird colors though, this looks like a very good mold.I want him to do the Viewsonic logo birds.
>>7554086My favorite part aside from the color is the little Gundam head crest.
>>7554086tweet to him
Finally took a couple shots of my yellow-and-black Dio squad, with my other two thrown in as well.
Well, everything seemed to work out with TaoBao. Glad I can finally see what these are actually like in-hand.
>>7555373Wow is that one whole shipment?
>>7555374Iceqube and Echo were in one shipment, and the rest were in another. Came from a few separate stores too, but consolidated for shipping overseas.
>>7555373>Going this hardcore right off the bat.What a cool dude. Got some great colors and figures right off the bat. Hope you love them and go for the Rhino and Hippo as well as they are quite great and severely underrated. Glad it all arrived safe. Keep us updated and take some more pictures, dude!
Mine collection so far. Waiting for IceQube & Echoblaster to join the party.
