Here you will find a list of Hong Kong Market exclusive items that came with the Soul of Chogokin releases through the years.
Soul of Chogokin Gx-39 Baikanfu Hong Kong item – Carry case.
The foam handle is removable.
Also included inside are two silica gel packets. I have to say, the insides are smelly. The closest smell I can think of is melted styrofoam. It was just pure murder on the olfactory sense. I had to air it out for two days before attempting to take pics of it. Guess it must be the foam reacting to the glue.
Gx-39 fits snuggly inside. (the case can be closed with it inside)
Soul of Chogokin Gx-40 Godmars Hong Kong item.
Removable foam handle.
Just like earlier Toysdaily posts mentioned, the Godmars can’t fit inside the case unlike Baikanfu.
But, taking the styro tray out of the box, it will fit.
Similarly, it also comes with the two silica gel packets and the same nose hair burning smell from the foam reacting to the glue. Also, it’s quite a chore to take out the styrofoam tray once you’ve put it in, as the accessories tray does not fit (too long).
Soul of Chogokin Hong Kong items – The Crystals
Soul of Chogokin Gx-41 Reideen
There are two versions, one with the LED display base (costs about $20 USD, about $15 USD more than the regular) and the one without the LED. I’m still trying to get the one without the LED (for the sake of completion, I’m nutty that way ).
The 4 LED for changing the colors (requires 3 AAA batteries, not included).
If memory serves, I think this is the pattern of how the color changes, from green, to blue, to purple to red.
Soul of Chogokin Gx-41 Reideen Hong Kong item.
It took a good deal of searching in Hong Kong but I finally managed to track one down.
With the Gx-41S Reideen Hong Kong item.
The regular Reideen Hong Kong item (left) seems to be etched much heavier compared to the Gx-41S version)
Soul of Chogokin Gx-43 Daimos Hong Kong item.
With the other Crystals.

Soul of Chogokin Gx-45 Shin Mazinger Hong Kong item Crystal
Limited to folks who got their Shin Mazingers in Hong Kong but I think this is available in the secondary market.
Shin Mazinger Px-04 Pileder Hong Kong Crystal
Soul of Chogokin Gx-46 Dygenguar and Aussenseiter Hong Kong item crystal
The Hong Kong Crystal for the Gx-46! There was a second (again, limited) production run and thankfully a few good friends helped me out. I totally missed out on the first release and was a pain to track down!
The crystal shows only Aussenseiter though, no Dygenguar. The crystal is also larger than the usual release.
Soul of Chogokin Gx-47 Energer Z Hong Kong item Crystal
Soul of Chogokin Gx-48 Big-O Hong Kong crystal item.
Fortunately, the etching seems more well defined now than what they did with the Gx-45 and Gx-47 crystals, those were somewhat hard to photograph.
Soul of Chogokin Gx-49 Shin Mazinger Big Bang Punch Ver. Hong Kong item crystal cube.
Soul of Chogokin Gx-04S reissue Grendizer Hong Kong item Crystal
Bandai Chogokin GE-10 New Gaiking Hong Kong item – Diecast shield
While the shield can be attached to the toy, I didn’t feel like risking it seeing that the cuff edges seem kinda sharp, it might accidentally cut into the paint or plastic. Also, there doesn’t seem to match anything shown in the TV show. I guess it’s just something the Hong Kong guys cooked up for the HK release.
