Do you collect other toys besides Transformers? Maybe you've got a Masters of the Universe collection you'd like to show off, or maybe you like Thundercats, Voltron, G.I.Joe, Power Rangers, Star Wars, Wrestling, or any of the various comic book toy lines. Please keep the discussions here to non-Transformers toy lines.

Just thought I'd share my new non-TF obsession. Anyone else ever tried these?

For the uninitiated, I'd prolly best describe these kits as robot versions of Stikfas. Almost all connectors for these model kits are ball and sockets, allowing a multitude of combinations. Being a Lego, TF and mecha fan, this flexibility piqued my interest and made me a fan of this line as well. BTW, doesn't the "SOFIA" kit looks like a good base to kitbash into an Energon/Animated Nekomimi?

As an example, here are a couple of pictures of completed kits.

I'm guessing you need to paint or sticker the crap out of these things? I like how they look, but I hate sticker application when the figure in question is reliant on it for any and all paint apps. And paint? Forget it.

Oh, this series doesn't come with stickers. The line's selling point resembles classic Legos in which parts of different colors are mixed and matched to create designs of one's choice.

A little color on things such as heads would be nice though.

Are they expensive? I'm not so keen on the figures if I'm honest but some of those weapons are sweeeet!
