Cute way to do a review! I like how the combining pegs are handled here so as to not mess up the heads. Hopefully it isn't too breakable, though (have had a few Kabaya figures snap with very little effort).

Is that really the G1 Seacons?

Its like they just, rushed G1 toys a bit too much.

Were you expecting something mind-blowing from these tiny little Kabaya model kits? Part of the selling point of these is their charm and little quaintness.

Not really but, it's a bit sticker crazy.

That's inherent of the nature of model kits.

So are those the actual G1 Seacons or just a build your own kit?

These are tiny, down-scaled, miniature replicas of the Hasbro/Takara-made G1 toys in model kit form made by Kabaya.

Kabaya models are a great way to get a representation of obscure Japanese G1 figures... without having to take out a 2nd mortgage on your home.

For example, Dai Atlas, Roadfire, and Sonic Bomber are pretty expensive toys, commanding between $300-$500 a piece. The Kabaya versions--which are pretty accurate to the originals, transformation wise--currently have a Buy It Now on ebay for $25.00 for the entire set of 3. Yes, they are MUCH smaller, have no electronics, and fragile... but they're a great alternative, and look great with large city bots.

Seriously!? 300 to 500 a piece? You could get better toys than that for much more worth!

Model kits I bought you had paint and glue if you want something fast and easy buy cheap model requires no glue that comes with stickers for details, I bought fundamental models they came with crappy stickers made gun dam look cheap, tacky, undetail enough, my last gundam I painted gloss car model kit paint was ver ka wing zero cockpit chest piece on gundam you can see brush strokes but everything else on gundam stood out eyes stood out more with glossy look and hiro pilot size of my pinky figure nail turned great

It's a shame these partsform when transforming from robot to beast. Still, I might nab a few Skalors or Overbites to have as a legion of generics.

As a collector of these Kabaya figures I can tell you this.

They may not be big highly detailed articulated figures that don't require parts to be removed to be transformed, BUT, for their size, they have a fair bit of articulation (and some even better articulated than their original G1 figures) and are just plain fun and make a great little addition to collections.

Don't be so quick to write them off just because they come packaged on plastic sprues and require you to put them together or because they're not as big or detailed as other figures until you actually try them. You might be pleasantly surprised. :wink:
