  1. Used, I wouldn't pay much more than what they retailed for. I have two MPC Alphas, the green and red one, that I purchased secondhand for around $60-$70 each. One of them was missing the box, but the other was pretty much MIB. I knew about the issues going into the purchase, so I had decided in advance that I would only get them if I could get them for a bargain. Given the build quality and durability issues, I didn't think they were worth it beyond that. With the increased competition from newer Legioss releases, you'd think that prices would have come down on the MPC Alphas, which was I was curious and ran that search. Either people didn't get the memo, or there are a lot of folks who really want Robotech-branded product.
  2. With the advent of new Legioss products, I was curious to see what the current market values were for MPC Alphas. I did a quick eBay search on sold listings and.... holy crap, those things are still selling for over $200 a piece.
  3. Some of these toys were known to have issues out of the when they were brand-new, out of the box, so the fact that yours fell apart as a second-hand item is not all that surprising. The advice I would generally give to folks regarding these toys is to decide in advance how you're going to pose it, carefully transform it, and then forget about ever handling it again.
  4. Am I the only one that thinks that the red/white/black color scheme is kinda appealing? Maybe not exactly the way the have it colored in that prototype -- but some variation of it.
  5. Just finished a sale with sjoebarry as a buyer. Pleasant to work with, no hassles.
  6. Selling a couple of items from my collection. All prices are inclusive of shipping and PayPal fees -- what you see is what you send me, no need to tack on extra. Continental U.S. buyers only. These will be up here for a week and then posted to eBay if there are no takers. I've bought and sold here in the past, and you can find reviews of past transactions on the SSL. 1) Bandai DX YF-29 Isamu version/Super Parts: $150.00 -- MOVED TO EBAY This has been displayed and transformed several times. Even though I haven't handled it a ton, it developed some looseness in the ankle joints and hips. I've applied clear nail polish to the ball joints and tightened the screws up a bit, but they are still not that tight. Other than that, the figure is in good condition. All accessories and parts are included. 2) Sentinel Riobot MOSPEADA Stick Ride Armor: $190.00 -- SOLD This is basically brand new. I opened the box once to inspect the contents, and one more time to take these pictures. Other than that, it has not been removed from the clear plastic tray and has not been handled or transformed. Boxes for both toys are in good condition w/some normal shelf wear.
  7. Right, I understood that the two divisions were separate within Disney. But the TV side has always made at least some effort to reference the films in order to establish the connectivity. AoS was usually the most blatant about it, typically having at least one or two major references to something happening in the films that were releasing the same week as the episode on air. The Netflix shows were more subtle -- mostly offhand comments about "that green guy" or Ben Urich's office displaying copies of the NY Bulletin with headlines about the Battle of New York. But the The Snap from Infinity War, and are too big to ignore. The shows have to either have to address it in some way or make some incredible leaps of logic to disregard it.
  8. This is a moot point now that all of the Netflix MCU shows have been cancelled, but I'm genuinely curious what the writers of those shows would have done in response to the developments of Avengers: Endgame. They could have done maybe one more season ignoring the events of Endgame, but at some point it starts to look awkward the longer the shows stay on the air. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D has chosen to ignore Endgame, which is weird considering the current season takes place a year after The Snap. There are still a couple of other shows out there (Runaways and Cloak and Dagger). Wonder what they are going to do about it (if anything)...
  9. Most of the super soldier experiments in the main MCU have been failures. Steve Rogers is the only one that worked out. The others all had pretty disastrous side effects -- Red Skull, Hulk, Abomination are not exactly what you'd call successful outcomes. The super soldiers developed by the Russians/Hydra were also unstable -- they went mad and rebelled against their superiors. Low probability of success, and high probability of catastrophic damage or loss of life if it doesn't work... doesn't exactly provide a great incentive to experiment. On the other hand, if you count the TV side of the MCU, you have Luke Cage and Jessica Jones who seem to have their powers without any side effects.
  10. I was there and I attended their panel on Friday. Since S2 of Cobra Kai had just come out a couple days before, I think most people hadn't had a chance to see it yet at the time (I hadn't), so most of the questions were related to the films. One particular question was about what they thought of the Karate Kid remake. They all gave their respectful answers as you would expect (Will Smith is one of the producers), but Ralph Macchio added at the end "Will they still be talking about that movie in 30 years? I don't think so." I just finished watching the series last night. Great second season, but I have to say that my nomination for the best shot in the whole series so far has to be the last shot from episode 6... you know, the one that references a certain famous line said by a certain character in the tournament from the first movie.
  11. I know about the leaks being out there, but I don't really feel like I'm in danger of being spoiled. Maybe it's just because of the places I frequent online, but other than news about the leaks, I've not seen any site purporting to post the actual leaked footage or descriptions thereof. I feel like I'd have to actively go looking for them.
  12. I believe Max's 1J debuts in the same episode that Hikaru's Super VF-1S debuts. Max has been promoted to squadron leader and is leading the escort group that Hikaru bails out in the souped-up VF-1S. It's also the same episode that he humiliates Miria in the arcade.
  13. Yes! This is exactly what I was talking about. Johnny is not Kreese. He has his own, well-intentioned-if-a-bit-crass sense of honor.
