  1. Bandai DX VF-31

    Looks like I have a tracking number already.
  2. Bandai DX VF-31

    I typically use EMS when I buy something from AmiAmi or Volks Japan anyway. An Arcadia Valkyrie shipped EMS by Ami Ami is around 4,500 yen, which is about $40 USD most of the time. So, $43 for shipping isn't a big surprise.
  3. Bandai DX VF-31

    Ordered it from Loopaza. Hopefully I won't regret the impulse decision.
  4. Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    Ranka has been complete for closing in on two months now. Sheryl arrived late last week. Freyja arrived today. I just wish I had a Minmay and an Ishtar to go with them.
  5. Kitz Concept Robotech Toy Line

    Maybe once his hair is popped off and the helmet is on he'd look fine to me. Now that I see those model sheets, it looks like the figure has the face structured for the helmet.

    Something about it looks strange to me. I guess if I had to say something specific, his face looks too narrow and pointy.

    I'd like to get a KC Minmei. It looks OK, and should go along my figmas well enough. Not liking the KC Rick. His face looks messed up. Not as messed up as the Toynamis, but bad enough. The Toynamis look really bad. As someone said earlier, only Miriya looks passable and only just barely. Roy might be marginal as well. It's difficult to tell. If Minmei turns out good, and if KC did more character figures, I might be in for some if they look decent enough. Scott and Marlene/Ariel would be nice. 1/12 scale Alpha!

    He is deathly afraid of that helmet.
  9. Bandai DX VF-31

    In regards to the 31A. Since I'm still new and inexperienced in the ways of Bandai Valkyrie madness... I had to skip on pre-ordering back in November. What are my options going to be for scoring one of these now? Will HLJ or CD Japan or some other vendor likely get them in stock on release, or am I stuck with ebay or something?
  10. ANIME Figures and Statues

    Not a brony, but that's pretty neat. From what I found from a Google search it's going to be more Hasbro properties than MLP. I'd like a Jem.

    Last night I saw a regular VF-0S on there. I wanted it, but it just wasn't worth $350 to me right now.

    Orindlt, your massive hoard inspired me to take some pictures of my new Eaglemoss XL Enterprise, so this flood of images is your fault! And, as I was handling it, the deflector dish fell off AGAIN! GRRRRR! Anyway, here we go. I'll spoiler most of these so those who don't want a flood of the Enterprise can avoid it.

    I voted for Minmay from DYRL with a note that either concert outfit would be good.

    I may post pics later. Right now I'm irritated. I got a Eaglemosss big scale TOS Enterprise. Directly out of the box the deflector dish fell off. Also, while examining it, I noticed the starboard bussard collector has something wrong with it. It looks slightly mismolded on the bottom and the color isn't consistent. I'm basically just bitching right now. I don't intend to return the ship. I don't want to deal with the hassle. I'm just going to take my lumps and move on. And I've already repaired the deflector with some superglue. Of course, that revealed the central spike of the deflector dish is molded crooked. I'm very disappointed. My first impression is that my little Corgi Enterprise is better. Crap. I just noticed something else. The starboard nacelle is ever so slightly tilted inboard. I'm glad now that I only ordered this ship. I had originally intended to order the D and the E along with it, but I reserved myself to only check out the TOS and go from there. I won't be ordering the D or E now. I also won't be ordering any of the smaller ships. I may give them another chance on a mega scale Constitution Refit, but otherwise I've been given a negative impression of the Eaglemoss product. Derex, maybe I should have just ordered a Diamond Select Nemesis Enterprise E. I'm not a fan of the E, but I bought the original release of the ship ages ago and it has sort of grown on me. In pics the Nemesis re-release looks like a good upgrade.

    OK, got it. They just looked different from what I had seen before. False alarm.
