  1. try $650 aud shipped screamy =-( Got mine today, not fiddled with it much, but its lovely for sure, definite improvement
  2. Just got the email this morning from Amiami, it ended up being $649aud shipped ems. I'm glad I just got some tax back, but yeh HN, Eff you for your hand in getting GST applied to stuff we cant get here and have to import. Jerks. Hopefully its worth it!
  3. "click here if page doesn't load" FIRE ALL MISSILES
  4. for once i was around at the start of a preorder ! and just like all of you, dead frozen unable to order...this is rubbish!
  5. Got that eknight order in, just fit in the allocation they reckoned, but I'm not holding my breath still, cuz they said 'around 50' so we'll see. Not sure i could pick a favourite though out of all the Voltrons. Original since a kid was the Panosh one that fits the figures in it, loved that. The madtoys looks great for a twist, the new one based on teh new show looks great as well. I'm hoping the SOC will hit me with good feels as well. I have way too many V's though. I wish the Mattel supersized didn't have that stupid auto transform for the legs, badly implemented and sets off easily. But love em all =-)
  6. Yeh I did jump on the miracle toys and Madtoys etc Voltron, and agreed, its quite awesome fun, but i had the Bandai preordered at a local who ultimately didn't come through with many preorders, and has kept the money, and helped to embitter this grumpy old man =-/ Thanks for the link on that Eknight, hopefully they come through, mind you, I had something preordered on amazon who I thought would always get stock allocation, and was surprised when it got canned. If a superglobal store like them cant always get what they reckon, then makes me wonder about the other places a bit ! Honestly i have too many voltrons... but... its voltron! =-)
  7. The Phoenix measures just over 20cm long very end to very tip if that helps? Not sure how long the real (hehe real, if ONLY) one is meant to be !=-)
  8. I know right, I thought it would be perfect or near on, but even with its flaws its still awesome. And yeh no prob re 3d design, it probably wont be amazing or anything though lol =-)
  9. Ffs. Bandai, you suck. This happened the first time, thought i would get lucky the 2nd time, but... no. Who does it benefit not making enough to supply those who want to buy? I guess I'll support KO makers on this one, so disappointing.
  10. the parts that are plastic dont feel dodgy at all, which is the impression from the vf2ss, ( not so much the legioss, its a lot better imo) but god phoenixs the main body is metal, the main wings are as well ( with a nice embossed g5 logo I might add!) so its really just the extremities that appear plastic, so theres not enough of it to feel cheap =-) the paint job brings it all together beautifully though, its the nicest blue! The vent opening mechanism is a little stiff but nothing really wrong. The front nose cone that splits to reveal g2 doesn't stay together well at all, so I'll never be using that i reckon. The minor annoyances are that the g vehicles are a bit fiddly to fit in, Joes race cars wheels dont roll like the unifives one either. Overall I'm really glad I got it, its got me kinda wishing for the unifive original color as well though LOL. Love em.
  11. lol true true. The firey phoenix accessory looks really good, quite flexible material as well, and it does fit over ok, but i'm thinking of making a 3d print dummy phoenix to put it on so I can have both forms showing in the display =-)
  12. No prob =-) Its got some nice extra gimmicks, such as bird missiles that drop from the bottom of g5, and the dome on top is clear now instead of grey plastic. They even made the bottom vents open/ close when you use the intakes open/close mechanism. They didn't do teh finer details as well as unifives though, such as the top bird missile isn't painted, and their isn't the same level of paint on the g1-4 as uni, but still looks amazing =-) You'll love it !
  13. The God Phoenix has landed in Australia! Thought I could pop a couple of pics up beside my old anime colored unifive, both have good and bad points, but I do like the new evolution toys one, the paint reaaaally pops. Please excuse the messy table, it's the lightsaber wiring table Did anyone else grab one?
  14. So it looks like the God Phoenix has been released, and mine was shipped just yesterday, so I'm keen to see how it compares to my old Unifive version! Fingers crossed its as good or better! https://hlj.com/metal-action-no-9-god-phoenix-evt57302
