I still prefer the proportions of the concept art to the final figure, but it seems less awkward than some early promo pics made it look.

>I still prefer the proportions of the concept art
Completely agree with you on that. The Concept was fucking incredible, and it felt like a true evolution to Dio. This one is like a side grade because he lost his big head and gained a super chonk body.

The very first prototype head looks bad though, I'm glad they changed it.

>>9167706
It’s funny, I just noticed that Dio’s eye in the concept art is a perfect match for their new logo. The eyelid is curved, unlike the straight line shape of the 1.0 figure or the more complex shape of the final 2.0

I always thought it would be perfect if more BBs had eyes like the hippo/rhino. Simple shape and cartoony aesthetic, and can rotate to show emotion.

If they're gonna add Dio 1.5 carriers to newer figures (not 1.0 since it doesn't have ports on its thighs), I wish they'd make some new 4cm designs.

In other news, Mega Dio came in the mail yesterday and I'm liking it overall. You can tweak its stature to look less hunchbacked, and it poses pretty well. My biggest complaint is that the legs aren't properly articulated at the knee joints, so you kinda have to fake it by unlocking the hip panels and using the shin swivels.

I'll post pics when I get around to it—probably after Dio 1.5 arrives which is hopefully in the next week.

Dawg, just get it from Aliexpress. Even with slow shipping it'll likely arrive long before BBTS gets theirs, and for around the same price too. I do this regularly and always get my figures before BBTS gets them.

Official store? Or a trustable one? Could you send the link?
>>
>>9187536
Aliexpress in general is pretty trustworthy since they have pretty decent buyer protection policies. 52 doesn't have an official store on Ali, only Taobao (which requires a middleman). I don't have a specific seller I use or anything, I just search for the best price and go for it. I've bought Beastboxes from a few different sellers and gotten them every time. Boxes were kinda fucked up though (they just sent the bare box itself wrapped in bubble wrap/plastic) so I hope you're ok with tossing em.
>>
>>9187536
If you want to keep the boxes in a good state, I've used Woori Store for beastbox three times in the last month, and everytime the box was perfect, even when one of the packages I've recieved was in a pretty bad state. The guy packs them great.

I have a weird feeling Mega Dio is bombing sales-wise, people have been so vocal about their negative opinions and there are way less in-hand photos than the beetle or kangaroo.
>>
>>9194008
I think it's decent honestly. But yeah the proportions all still kinda wonky, and calling him Mega Dio while being only slightly larger than the initial release is odd when it's the same size as the other larger boxes.
>>
>>9194637
I don’t mind the name, size, or general look of the head (and for the record I’m happy with my purchase). BUT, they should have set a strict, no-budging rule that its head couldn’t be smaller than Dio 1.0

This is the one by Mechazone, right?

I love his original stuff, but I'm just not feeling this. The shapes, the design, the general aesthetic, none of it's really working for me. The colors are sorta cool if you consider them an M-Tron reference, but it's not enough to make me bite. I understand the challenges of folding a humanoid form into a little box, but still unfortunately not feeling this.
>>
>>9200805
Ooh, 18cm, meaning he'd be around 1/10 if he were human sized. Not extremely big on the proportions, but it looks interesting if nothing else.

I just can’t figure out why they went to all the trouble of making it fully articulated by modern action figure standards, only to for the torso to be a solid block with no ab crunch or waist swivel. If not for that I’d pick this up.

The Kangaroo's beast mode is great, but the transformation reminds me of Alien Queen's spaghetti-alignment ordeal , though not as bad. It also feels like there's enough empty space to squeeze the boxing gloves if they change the sculpt a little.

Hey guys long-time lurker here, want some suggestions for a new Beast Box to add.
I managed to get a Delta and Jojo in standard colours from someone I knew when they were working in Beijing, and have to say they are pretty awesome for transforming toys, with them being the first I ever owned.

And I have been lurking for some time since then and been eyeing some nice looking new lines from this company, so I'm here to ask: any other toys from this brand I should get?

I do want to get the panda and the two MegaBox releases, but I want some more suggestions from all of you here, so any takers?

FUcking...pretty much almost anything, honestly. The line has come so far since Delta and Jojo, and almost everything has been phenomenal. Some must haves in my opinion include:

- The bird
- The crab
- The long-necked dinosaur
- The spider
- The mantis

I am using intentionally vague terms because almost all of them have multiple colorways/versions, and they are all awesome. This is not a complete list of all my favorites even, just my current faves. It's pretty much a great line through and through, they make missteps every now and then but they rarely release toys I would flat out call "bad."

>>9239555
Forgot to mention Toxic Horn. I have really been loving him lately, his colors work so well.

>>9239521
There's more than two Megabox releases. Generally you can decide based on the animal/character, or whether you prefer articulation, transformation, accessories or gimmicks, some are focused on one of these particular aspects more than others.

You'll also be largely limited by what buying methods you can use, whether you can figure out how to proxy from Taobao.
>>
>>9239579
>You'll also be largely limited by what buying methods you can use, whether you can figure out how to proxy from Taobao.
Nah, this pretty much only applies if you want very specific limited-release colorways, or absolutely NEED to have new releases the minute they come out. If you're ok with the standard releases, and are decently patient, they will eventually show up at all the usual webshops (and much later, Amazon).

It's a cool concept in theory, I just have a lot of problems with the heads and the look of the combiner. The combiner is too busy and ugly, with a messy silhouette. And like, is the combiner's head a fucking box as an homage to Motormaster or something? That's the only reason I can come up with for why it's so hideous. Great heads could have gone a long way towards endearing these to me.

Just got the kangaroo, and it's awesome, possibly even one of the best in the line so far. But the instructions and box were badly water damaged during transit so I'm having to just figure it out myself.

Do the boxing gloves come off? I assume so since there are articulated kangaroo paws underneath, but they don't seem to pull off easily and I don't wanna break it.
>>
>>9295119
yeah they come off and you need to remove them for box mode. As for the instructions, you can figure out the transformation using the tabs and pegs, a lot of them are for locking the box mode.

>>9297226
Even if your middleman is willing to snipe, they are limited to 2 per account or something. Seems like a nightmare to proxy.
>>
>>9297359
Never used Xainyu before. Does TBFocus accept them?
>>
>>9297403
Dunno you'd have to check their t&c. Most TB agents including the official ones refuse to touch xianyu. I know Superbuy is willing to proxy xianyu but only on a case-by-case basis. There is also the problem that you need to use xianyu's phone app to browse the listings effectively, it's just much more mess than taobao.

I'll keep looking on Taobao, but nothing yet. Sucks because this is like, the only mold of this version of the mantis.

They've been around for a little while now, and have evolved greatly from the original D10 (DIO) model. Normal Beast Boxes average around $25~ USD, while the bigger and more complex Mega Boxes are closer to $50 USD, depending on where you look. There's also a bunch of rare color variants.

Yeah you need a forwarder. Superbuy I believe you can copy/paste the URL https://detail.tmall.com/item.htm?id=629894993477
They start charging from 500g or 1kg, I can't remember so it's not worth buying a 50g box charger alone.

Try looking up taobao guides or forum discussions specific to UK. Women use taobao way more for their clothes and dubious makeup supplies so they'll know common pitfalls for your region like taxes, customs tearing your packages open, reliability of your last mile couriers, etc.

I buy straight from Taobao. Pricey because you need a forwarding service, but I get it really fast after release.

Other than that, all the three methods you mentioned are reliable enough. Just research fair prices and don't overpay from scalpers, and you'll be fine. The only Beastbox knockoffs in existence are of Dio, and they generally look so shitty you'll instantly be able to tell.
>>

BBTS is fine legitimacy-wise, they're just extremely slow and tend to overcharge a LOT for import toys. If you're patient, you're fine with them. You will probably get it faster via Chinese eBay sellers though.

BeastBox Universe VIP
On sale 20th November for 1688 RMB

VIP item this time is the gold version of the Centaurus Beetle mold, name is "Black Waltz"

It's a subscription for a whole year so 1688 RMB is right.
8 regular + 4 limited over the year and Black Waltz upon purchase, 13 boxes in total. It works out about the same or cheaper compared to buying them one at time on release, but you'll miss out on Black Waltz and have to camp for the limited items.

How solidly do these tab together in either mode? Is there a concrete locking point for cube mode or is it kind of held together with hopes and dreams?

Also is there a benefit to grabbing more the one of a particular mold like say the rhino and hippo besides the alt mode itself?
>>
>>9379942
They're different designers, so that can vary.
For instance, the beetle makes a super solid block, but the croc feels (to me) far less solid and, whilst it fits in the box charger, a much less satisfying cube (beast mode is super

>>
>>9380161
>seems like it would be solid as hell
It's not a mess or anything - more like multiple fairly solid sections joined together by fairly stiff ball joints. It still feel like I'm describing it badly, but it just doesn't have the nice, 'finished' feel I get from tabbing everything nicely in place with some of the other moulds.
>I'm hoping the stegosaurus gang is a more tight cube
Jawbreaker/Trashard/Bloodstone comes together extremely snugly. That, along with its super charming beast mode and lovely use of translucent plastic, puts it as possibly my favourite mould thus far.

>Also is there a benefit to grabbing more the one of a particular mold like say the rhino and hippo besides the alt mode itself?
The gimmicks. Rhino has a rotating-eyes gimmick, hippo has extra weapon ports on the head and inside the mouth. Dio and Jojo 1.5 versions have added 3 mm ports and extra accessories. Crabs can attach to each other forming a hermit crab, so you may want 2. Monkey combiner requires two sets to complete.

And for the cat molds, a lot of box space was allocated for the lion's mane, so the tiger and panther end up looking hollow in box mode.

Sui-Feng from Bleach’s incredibly (theoretically) OP two-hit kill weapon, which only ever successfully worked against like 4 minor enemies, 3 of which were from filler arcs?

>hermit crab

Oooh that makes me wonder, can you fit the box charger over the crab that’s being carried? Obviously the lid would have to be left open but I feel like it should work otherwise.

Should be able to. That being said, I was getting more Tachikoma vibes from the combined form than anything.

theres no built in storage for bloodstones godzilla breath right? Im trying to find a space where it could work but everythings just a bit too tight. Love the fig otherwise hes the best out of the 3 I own I think

Nice. beastbox.tmall.com listed these two Parasite Weapons for regular sales. Hopefully that means more Parasite Weapons and PO bonuses are getting released for sales individually.

Wish they did it last week though since I just shipped my October haul.

I was able to stick it in there. I don't recall where exactly, and I'm too lazy to go get it now, but I don't remember having much trouble with it.

Ok, went to check it. Seems like I put it in the back. This does allow the box to still fully close.

Okay sweet thanks man, I pretty much confirmed you can't get it in box mode anywhere but that will do

Oh, sorry, I just reread your posts and realized you were asking for storage on the cube itself, not in the charger box. But yeah, it is at least something being able to fit it into the box.

Also, to anyone who wanted Chang'e, she is not a Tmall exclusive after all it seems, she's up on HLJ. So...go at it!
