Default Cool Robots line whose name I don't know

Found out about these on FB and like them a lot. They look to be a riff on the Pose Skeleton line that I now have less reason to need to sample.

They're some variety by gashapon/candy/trading figure. Think I saw them over on /toy/ last week. 100mm puts them a hair under 4".

Should be able to buy a case on AmiAmi or HLJ eventually. They look like they move better than the Pose Skeleton but boy, are they as boring as fuck to look at.

The company's name is Epoch and they do a bunch of gashapon stuff as well as the Sylvan Families stuff.

I was able to find their website but not much info on those figures.

Epoch capsule toys

As for the scale the Tag Hobby images shows they are 100mm = 4 inches. The accessory packs look like they were released already but I couldn't find a place to purchase them other than Amazon.jp with like $90 for shipping....

I do kind of like them though. Maybe use one for an I Robot figure.

The flyer leads me to believe that they're a March release. I'd give a fiver for the figure, no doubt.

Ah, I thought these were by the company that made the Rement Pose Skeleton. Is Rement the company name?

I remember them from one of the recent Gashapon generals on /toy/ for sure.



Those Epoch Gashapon tables and folding chairs are great, got some last year long with some theatre chairs.

Boss Fight's skeletons should have just as good articulation and not set you back as much?

Even paying x2 retail you'd still be able to get a figure and kart for the price of one skeleton.

I get what you're saying, but it's really not the same thing.

The title line mentions '300 Yen', which I assume is the price of a robot, which breaks out to about $2.50US.

Yup, that's the name, rement mostly does gashaphon foodstuff and various other themes though there's no standard scale for the items, some stuff are 1/18 compatible while others are more to 6 inch scale or 1/6

Yeah, Rement is all over the place. Never know what they're gonna come out with next. I think the most notable thing I recall from Epoch is their old, 1:16ish scale G-Taste babes.

Got a link? Searching for 'epoch' brings up pages of dishware and jewelry.

Yes, Thanks for the heads up. I kept trying to search for those guys but was having a very difficult time navigating the global version.

Anyways, I just got the shipping notice for the 3 sets I ordered so I should have some comparison pictures in the next week or so.

These came in today.

Here is a quick scale picture.


So these guys are pretty fun and I like the look of the robots.
So for less than perfect:
They sport "revoltech" like joints but since they are only like $3 they come on the spru in 2 parts and you have to put them together so they are kind of weak and like to fall apart pretty easily. The joints also don't stay in the appendages very well either. Basically these are crappy toys to actually give kids.

So the white parts are a softer plastic and the grey is more rigid.

Articulation (I'll have more detailed pictures later)
Ball joint head.
Revol shoulders, hips, and knees.
single hinge elbows
swivel wrists
swivel waist
ball joint ankles. (these aren't too good because both the lower leg and foot are soft plastic. They hold good for now but I have a feeling that will deteriorate with time and use.)
The torso is a new one (for me) it is a wheel like swivel that lets the robot double over pretty good as well as bend strait back.

The go-karts are pretty nice too.

So even flawed, better than anything you'd get for $3 here is what you're saying?

Haha yeah for $12 I got 2 droids and 2 go-karts. The go-karts are okay but I don't really need 6 of them. The robots make me think of a more modern styled terminator droid though.
