Thanks!Now im having all sorts of Medabots Nostalgia!
I remenber the small ones,they were cool,though i never had one.They had all these interchageable parts,whick you could make combinations.They dont much articulation,but they seems cool.

I remenber one that i always wanted was that super cool Metabee you could buil with a timpet and later the parts,just like the show!
These models had Metabee and Rokusho.

This Rokusho you showed does have timpet or is super anime accurate version?

Haha, I also have that Medabee Tin-Pet you described, but I can't seem to find it anymore in my house. I've been searching for the other three Tin-Pets that were released, as well as a new Metabee, but they are expensive on Ebay.

This D-Arts Rokusho will not have a tin-pet, sadly/

I have searched Medabots and...
The Medabee model with the tinpet is rare,i havent found one on ebay.
I found one eletronic season 3 Medabee though.

I`m not much of a fan of season 3.

I read the manga and it really good,I have read it through 1 to 5 or 4 i think.
Too bad i lost 1 some time ago,it was my favorite.
But its really cool and funny.

I want these. When do they come out?

I'm sad that we aren't getting tin pets for them.

I've always wanted the old Medabee kit, but I can't find it anywhere.

The kits go for absurd prices right now, over $100.

Metabee's being released next month;

I had one of those, that orange one.
It had like an inner frame with metal arms and legs and you could armour it up.

I had the Sumilidon kit, as well as two of just about every single 3' figure that was released! I absolutely loved Medabots as a kid! :D Too bad I can't find any of them anymore... :(

Hi all,

I came across this thread by accident, but I was happy to see that there are other Transformers fans who also like Medabots. A few years back I really got into collecting the Hasbro Medabots model kits- right around the time they went on clearance at TRU for $3 a pop! Well that became an obsession and I found myself on YahooJapan quite a bit buying up pretty much anything that I didn't already have. Anyway,long story short, I was considering selling off my collection, but these new kits have sparked my interest and now I am reconsidering. Just to give you all an idea, here is a portion of my Medabots collection:

I'm not sure where they'll go, but I can't wait for the new ones! :)

Thanks- if there's any interest I also have a checklist as well as package images for almost all of the Japanese Medabots (Medarot). It's a shame so little was released in the US.
