  1. FS *Special* Bandai DX VF-19 Advance ****missing one articulated hand**** has been opening, and transformed once. No breaks or cracks to be found. I may find the hand and if I do I’ll include it. Throwing in a CM’s Dyson figure. $215 shipped CONTUS + PayPal friend/fee Bandai DX VF-31F never transformed, all baggies sealed. $210 shipped CONTUS + PayPal friend/fee I’m on the good sellers list. thanks for looking, more to come.
  2. I'd rather pay 5$ to have a Script made to load the page without images. That's how they (the resellers) do it. The bot would still be limited by service speeds
  3. Just when you thought it was safe to sleep in.. this one will be extra F5 madness.
  4. FYI, It's not bots doing the split second purchases, it's running the purchasing page on script only. It's how a lot of the F5 sales get instantly sold out. This is a big issue with the products sold in Asian markets. 3A had a huge problem with it, holiday sales would be sold out in less than a minute. The Script users would have the page loaded, and checkout completed before your main page ever loaded I suspect the same thing is happening here. Bot's can't change the connection speed and site server hang ups. running with out site images... well there almost no serve lag time. They tried to combat it by only allowing verified emails and lowering amounts per customer, but the shop owners would just have multiple instances open.

  6. Just when I Thought I’d never spend 400$ on a single Arcadia purchase again.. to quote the great Harry.. ”just when I thought, you couldn’t do anything dumber, you go and do something like this...and totally redeem yourself!” RIP wallet

    Plastic quality is all dependent on price and type of base. The reason quality of plastic has gone down is due to cost and making it more enviornmentally friendly. Hence why lots of new North American toys are very Hollow and bendy. Japanese makers still use Chinese factories and the costs have risen roughly 80% just since 2003. So That’s why plastic quality suffers, for a better cost to of product to the consumer. Honestly it wont be shocking that one day soon, Die-cast might be cheaper than plastic. Who knows what kind of petroleum laws may come in the future with the global crises.
  13. Transformers has a HUGE market compared to Macross, especially Zero. Optimus Prime is an icon of the brand and pop culture across the planet. The SV from Zero is a tiny niche market of diehard fans. Pricing it higher than 350$ USD is retail suicide. 400 or more and it’ll be in HLJ’s in stock warehouse for 2 years.
