    Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    ...What? It's almost as if all of those statements are from one person in the movie who not only isn't portrayed very positively in the trailer, but might just not be the most rational of people in general. Are you really going to take it THAT personally that you're going to start suggesting there's some terrible agenda at play in this movie? That it's trying to program us to want to unleash giant kaiju to destroy ourselves? Really? Not that kaiju movies, especially Godzilla ones, have ever been allegory (thinly veiled or otherwise) for environmental issues or anything. No, that's just crazy talk.
  2. Looks like Set C of Jinbao's OSKO of Gravity Builder is coming into stock at the various export sellers and the chinese video reviews are pouring in. Can't wait to finally have my full set of these guys.

    Interesting how they no longer let you wait and pay for it at release despite it being a regular release, too.

    Looks like black with a neon-green line on the front.

    They're shipping a day or so early, which realistically doesn't matter much in the end because no one is getting 0 day shipping. Their actual shipping time isn't that bad either, usually stuff goes out same day as long as I throw out the shipping request not long after it's paid for. Since that 5-6 AM for them is 3-4 PM for me, that's not hard to pull off. Even with saturday releases and shipping requests stuff is usually out the door by noon for them and out of the country by midnight that night or 6 AM the following day.

    HLJ released it exactly on time though. Release date for the VF-2SS Nexx was November 10th. Their stock roll-over happens right at around midnight their time, then around 5-6 in the morning their time the payment requests/charges go out. That's just how they do things, in my experience that's how they've done things for a while. They broke it for the October 27th Bandai stuff for some reason, with it all going live a day earlier than it was supposed to, but in general they keep to release date.

    Nuu's review also confirms it includes the full SAP armor and separately the holster armor for Nexx's second gun.

    Those really were some glorious days. I ended up with a PG Wing Gundam Zero Custom from Amazon for like $35 dollars.

    HLJ seems to have more VF-4 stock going.

    Sounds like securing my order at HLJ THEN sharing the link was the pro move. Whoo. Order already processed and confirmed.

    Try reloading it. It's definitely there.

    Hi-Metal R

    It might derp out, but I assure you it's there and was active at the time I posted it. Already got my order in.

    Hi-Metal R

    The VF-2SS releases both sold out rather quickly and have stayed sold out. It's the VF-1 2-seaters and VF-1A Hikaru that never really sold out. Given the relatively small amount of VF-4 merch it's more probable for it to turn into a feeding frenzy compared to the recent VF-1 releases.

    The page says "complete set of SAP units" AND separately "Nex machine legs SAP" so it might very well be the whole set plus Nexx's heavy railgun and leg holster armor. https://tamashii.jp/item/12632/?wovn=en

    Release date for the VF-2SS Nexx is up, November 10th.

    Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    Oh, that Guren SEITEN box is gorgeous. Can't wait for mine to get here tomorrow.

    Hi-Metal R

    Where did you get the idea that it costs $300? It's 12,960 jpy IIRC, or roughly $115.

    Hi-Metal R

    No more than the VF-2SS is if I had to guess.

    They can do a reissue of the Avalanche Exia, god willing.

    FEXTHOBBY Macross Line up

    What places are even going to have these for sale outside of eBay for $85 or more or FextHobby's own website?
  22. At this point you're better off grabbing 3-4 of the bootlegs to make sure you can cobble something that looks good out of them all. You'd still be spending like 1/5th the cost or less on the aftermarket price that the Figma goes for.

    That's most higher end toys now though. Figuarts, Robot Damashii, and Figma prices have been climbing for years now. I'm genuinely surprised it's not the 15k jpy price point the VF-2s are at.
