    That thing is huge! I love it.
  2. Hi-Metal R

    Ditto on everything said above. But I'm 41.

    So far, so good. Ignore the photo of the non-HMR product.

    Nice. Should be getting mine any day now. Sorry about the missing part. That would bug the hell out of me. Now, can't you just contact Bandai/Tamashii and have them ship you that part? it's obviously a manufacturer error, right? May I ask: Is it grey darker than the VF-1S Strike Valkyrie (Hikaru Ichijyou Model)? If so, what is the reasoning behind this?

    Totally! I'm a frequent customer, so I do what I can to support who has given me great service. Just throwing it out there!

    I just semi-pre-ordered the Monster (HMR, obviously) from a Canadian-based company: www.itcamefromjapan.com He quoted me about $270 USD (not including shipping, which he'll know once he knows the box dimensions) – he says the price may change if Bandai's MSRP changes. I know this price is steep, but considering all this "pre-order" hunting these days – something that not a lot of people have time for – I don't mind paying some extra cash here and there, especially if it guarantees a proper delivery (especially from a retail store, and not an eBay dude). And I like the fact that it's in Canada, so that's local enough for me (I live in the U.S.). Very nice guy, real personable. Takes him a couple of days to get back to me, but he always does WITH a SOLID, detailed answer. I've ordered from him before, nothing but a positive experience. Packs well, no dents in boxes. I don't think he has the order page up yet, but definitely drop him an email if you're interested. He said he guarantees me one, since he's putting his order in early.

    Thanks for that. I could of swore I read somewhere (maybe on this forum) that if you bought 2 or 3 Regults, you'd be able to get the variant add-ons (just the attachments) for free or something? And of course, you'd have to show proof of purchase or something. Not sure if there was a small charge or if it was free.

    Are these missile variants going to be available as exclusives only?
  9. Hi-Metal R

    Will this do?

    I think the oversized feet makes it look even better!
  11. Deleted post?

    Now I feel stupid. Can a mod delete this thread please (and I don't need an acknowledgement!) Regards!
  12. Deleted post?

    I do, too. You'd probably have the courtesy to point me in the right direction.
  13. Deleted post?

    A mod deleted a post regarding Anime Friend/Star Pro.... I kindly asked that if the information existed on another topic to just direct me to it. Instead, the topic was deleted without any kind of acknowledgment (not even a PM saying "hey, go here. It has been discussed"). It's easy for that mod to hit the delete button, but I spent a good 5 minutes on that post. I mean, honestly, these DMV-like tactics some of the mods (not all) are just rude and uncalled for. Been visiting this forum for years, so I would appreciate, at the very least, a heads up. We're all adults. This is Macross forum, not the Department of Motor Vehicles or Harmony Gold. Smile. Chill. It's not that serious. Life goes on. Have a great weekend.
  14. The Newbie and Short Questions thread

    Is there a compiled list of all the episodes that featured (not sure if "featured" is the right word) the awful Filipino-quality artwork by AnimeFriend/Star Pro? Like many others, I recently re-watched the series. After all these years, I'm still floored by how good it is – and how excellent it has held up. It's up there with some of my other favorite viewing experiences like The Godfather, Once Upon A Time In America, Star Wars, Justin Bieber's Never Say Never, etc. However... coming across episodes like Virgin Road would ruin the seamless experience. Not only was it horribly written, but the artwork/animation was beyond pure sh*t! It didn't look rushed, it looked like someone didn't care. Period. Sometimes it was hard to catch (as they were mixed in the same episodes, in small portions, or with re-used cells, etc), other times, it was like looking at a Filipino train wreck.
