Yep, I owned the Blitzkrieg Combination Dai X once-upon-a-time. A fantastic model and worth a ruddy fortune now. I would still love to see a perfect version at some point though; with the technology available nowadays, that model would be a knock out.I think you're right that the creators had some say in the vintage toys' design. The X-Sabre is practically cannon as far as I'm concerned. It may not have appeared in the show, but it's there in the blue print and comes with every Dai-X toy Takatoku produced. I'm sure if a sequel had been made you would have seen the Dai-X wielding the X-Sabre. It was one of the main things that I felt definitely needed to be included in TROM, that's for sure.It would be fantastic to see some of those melee weapons featured in your game, Crash.
I like parties, I like fun, I want to live in a hamburger bun!
