Does size really matter ? Well, that is something you could argue about...as far as Exogini and Gormiti go, there are series where both coincide

Posted Image


However, it is true to say that this only applies to the Gormiti mini-series, not the normal size Gormiti

Posted Image


When we compare sizes of normal sized Gormiti with Exogini, the difference becomes apparent

However, this post is made to proof why they are related..not to show the differences, hehehe. So here we go : Look at the head..and count the arms ... seems pretty obvious how this Gormiti came to be created

Posted Image


What about these two ? You`ll have to look a bit deeper then the colour...the pose, the body and those arms...the Exogini has definitly served as a model for this Gormiti

Posted Image


Here you have everything - colour, tail, claw..it`s all there...

Posted Image


..anyone for tails ?

I start the group pics with the green ones, in Gormiti talk these come from the Forrest, however in the Exogini language, all are aliens (true to the original line which was called "Fistful of Aliens"), so it`s easy to appreciate that whilst Gormiti are kind of woodland-like, all Exogini have alien features. Having said that, even in these group pics you can see certain similarities.

Posted Image

The blue ones, creatures from the Sea (Gormiti), again are aliens as far as Exogini go.

Posted Image

The red ones are probably more akin to each other, as Gormiti set their natural habitat ina volcano environment, which has got to be pretty outlandish..

I would like for other forum members to give their inout. You don`t have to agree with me (although this would obviously help to make you a lifelong friend..) - just write..and if you have pics to prove your (opposite) point of view, post them, please

I was chatting to a UK based Italian (over here doing his doctorate) on Seibertron last night and it seems like the links between series 3 Exogini and Gormiti are pretty well known in Italy. He was unaware of the Fistful of Aliens origins of those same Exogini however.

Wow, really cool. I dont collect either toy line, so this connection would never have occured to me. However, GIG was/is involved with both lines, so it makes sense.

The connection between FOA and Exogini series three is not well known either. I would even say many US collectors dont even know much about the Exogini third series. I have a fairly detailed write up about it at MXD fyi.

Hell, I had to order the 3rd series of Exogini, just to replace my childhood FOA collection. For my money though, all similarities considered, I will still take FOA over Gormiti.

Whoa. I just got into Gormiti last year. Would love some of these smaller guys. They'd fit better into my miniature gaming. You guys have probably covered this but can you get em in the US?

If you're talking about Mini Gormiti, then no, you can't buy them in the US. But you can always buy them from forum members here who have lots of them to sell ;)

The minis look cool, not as cool as FOA though. I see the same basic style to them.
