Ultimate Takara Brave DX Resource Portal (ongoing project)

This is a toy resource for those interested in the Takara Brave series (also known as Yuusha Brave), a year by year break down of the toy releases and links to blogs featuring them.  Purely because more people deserve to know the wonder of the Takara Brave toys.
I’m not a big fan of the cartoon, this is primarily for the toys so I’m ignoring human characters and non-toy characters (unless there is a TF equivalent).  I’m going fairly anglicized with this too, sorry if that offends anyone.

Each line is presented below in order of release, and over time each figure will have a blog discussing them.
