First wave release date is scheduled for early August for Mazinger and his weapons set (seperate release), late August for Great Mazinger and late October for Alt Eisen. The line looks to be for poseability and not for transformation
Others slated for release are -Reideen the Brave -God Reideen (appeared only in the last episode of 1990's Reideen the Superior, a Gatchaman-styled Anime) -Dygenguar -Aussenseiter -Cybaster -Gear Fighter Dendoh -Knight Gear Ogre (also from Gear Fighter Dendoh)
Sentai characters like Shinkenoh (from Shinkengers, 2009) and Sun Vulcan (Taiyo Sentai Sun Vulcan, 1981) also appear in this line. The figures will have diecast, but as to how much diecast proportionally remains to be seen. The price isn't half bad though.
Personally, the ones on my "got to have list" are Alt Eisen, Cybaster and Gear Fighter Dendoh and Ogre. The scale roughly fits into the SOC line (Dendoh is listed at 24.5 Meters tall, roughly the same height as Great Mazinger's official height).
The only real downside to this line is that the figures are 14Cm tall only, roughly 5.5 Inches tall (Gx-45 Shin Mazinger is 6.5 inches so we're talking a real scaled down line here)
The coolest part I think is they're planning to release the Photonic research Labs - Mazinger's base (See pics)!
I also editied the title of the thread to fit the new name of the line.
If you're familiar with Bandai's Robot Tamashii line, they should roughly be the same height basing it on how they're displayed with the Soul Act stands.
The diecast content may be limited to just the feet which is the same practice they did with the SH Figurarts line. I'm basing this assumption on the pricing as the prices for Mazinger and Great Mazinger is quite near to more recent releases for either the RD or SHF line.
Great thing about this line is that they can be mixed with their Real Robot counterparts for a great Super Robot Taisen display. ;D

mechapunk: seems like it. a far cry when it was a fresh board in 2001. we started with just Malvin,me, omni x, and oliver. then it rose to about a hundred members, lurkers and the like. now it is a Ghost town.
