Gokin (alloy) refers to it's metal content. There is a segment of collectors, like me, that collect diecast Super Robots. Some of those collectors are also fans of Transformers, like me. However, Hasbro/Takara will not give licensing for transforming figures. This is why as soon as licensing for the character, minus transformation of course, was released you saw an explosion of non-transforming figures from companies trying to cash in on the Transformers 30th Anniversary and offer stuff like never before. For example, Kids Logic, Ultimetal Prime, Kotobukiya, Sentinel etc etc
While it's pointless for collectors who need their figures to transform, there are others who dont mind having a nice diecast version of their favorite characters. That's why these are low run figures. These weren't meant to scale with regular Transformers toys. These are in a class of their own and understandably misunderstood.
