    Maxfactory's Figma Line

    Mercy was surprise-announced and is already up for pre-order currently.

    Hi-Metal R

    They initially showed the prototype with the others in that nice big reveal, but IIRC there was another showing of the prototype and it finally showing up in magazines in the fall last year, like September-October? Seemed like it was going to go up for pre-order October or November but nothing ever came. Then how come we still have so many months with no HMR releases at all if they have plenty of Macross releases lined up but supposedly no room due to other shows getting HMR releases too? There's plenty of low-effort repaints they could have done if they just wanted to milk the VF-1 mold more.

    Unlikely. They'd have probably just not made anything during those times. There's been plenty of months over the last year they could have done a Macross HMR release and there was nothing at all instead. Realistically, Macross is a niche product same as the other HMR releases are. The fact they've been teasing the Tomahawk for like 4 months and there's no pre-order to speak of kind of says it all.

    Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    It's the result of a contest to design the new Enterprise for Star Trek Online from a few years back. The Ent-E is lost in the late 24th century to an Undine rift and the ships that come out of it while captained by Data. The Odyssey class is a next-gen ship and one of the early members of the class gets made into the Enterprise-F and is captained by an Andorian.

    Batman Beyond Animated Movie

    I've wanted Michael Keaton as Old Bruce in a Batman Beyond movie for a while now. After seeing him as Vulture it was one of the most obvious castings in the world.

    METAL BUILD RELEASES

    In counterpoint I will say I've had them actually refund me the difference when the pre-charged shipping amount was too much for what it actually cost to ship. The Zeong's box is HUGE for an RD and I don't quite blame them for asking for more compared to their regular charge.

    MyKombini is a bit sluggish on processing, but I've never had an issue with any of the pre-orders for web exclusive stuff I've done through them. Have heard one or two people say that if you require post-purchase support it gets far iffier but I have no first-hand experience with that.

    That's a rather tempting price, not going to lie. Edit: Oh, wow. Not THAT tempting. Look at that eBay feedback.

    METAL BUILD RELEASES

    It is being released at the end of the month. 2/23 according to Bandai's website. There's no reason to assume that the Amazon version will be any different, either. It might have a sticker or two on the back of the box, but that's it.

    Ace Combat 7

    That far west base is full of easily killed ground targets and is the farthest away. Made sense to go there first, resupply, then deal with the closer areas. Supposedly the 8AAMs aren't bad against drone swarms if you actually have a full swarm and good angles. There's parts that will improve lock on time and homing capability and both of those will probably help.

    Ace Combat 7

    I had issues with that mission until I got the A-10C with the 4AGMs. Went for the far area to the west first, wiped it out, went back taking potshots at the air field and resupplied, dealt with the air base then went for the plateau area. The Gripen E has carried me through like 6 or 7 missions now, especially with the LACMs. So many ground heavy missions in a row.

    Ace Combat 7

    If anyone else hasn't gotten their code yet get in contact with a customer service rep and make sure to point them at the product page and its advertising of the DLC code, then point them at https://www.bandainamcoent.com/news/ace-combat-7-frequently-asked-questions and for further proof that they're supposed to provide the code on their end. One is Bandai-Namco's own FAQ for the game's pre-order bonuses, the other is a Reddit post made by a Bandai-Namco rep explaining the situation. I contacted them using all this info and got my code a few hours later after the rep forwarded it to their marketing and promotions team.

    METAL BUILD RELEASES

    Same. I canceled mine after realizing that without the Full cloth I just didn't care, and even then I'm not sure I like the Crossbone enough to need a Metal Build when I already have X1 Full Cloth, X2, and X3 as Robot Damashii figures.
  14. Oh, those look rather interesting.
  15. Not familiar with those, but these are teeny tiny 2 inch or so tall plastic figures with what seems like pretty solid build quality for a KO and a lot of posability including a hinge and balljoint for an ankle joint. I highly recommend grabbing one or two to try out. I went in for $60 worth (the tank drone/chopper drone accessory set that turns into add-ons for a mech, a green basic mech to go with them, a Coast Guard colored flying model, and one other) to try out and just threw down for another $90 worth that includes all 5 SAT units (SWAT mechs basically) and two others. For their price it's hard to mess up trying just one or two. Show.Z already has my second order shipped and out of the country now by the look of it.

    Had the first half of my Christmas spending for myself come in from China finally. A set of MFT's Lost Planet KO Diaclone power armors. At $12-$15 per these things are pretty much perfectly priced for their tiny size and modest complexity. Plenty of posability and customization with the parts they have, and even little pilot figures for a bunch of them that are jointed and have feet magnets to help them stand. Already ordered a bunch more after getting these and being impressed by them. Now to wait for the others to arrive and that Jinbao Devastator that's the other half of the Christmas spending.
  17. These lil' Diaclone KOs are wonderful, especially for the price of $12-$15 per if you shop around. This first batch was off a guy on Aliexpress (never did have tracking work for it, either), and I've gone ahead and ordered another 7 (including the full SAT team) off of Show.Z's store after getting these in and messing around with them. They're all of 2 inches tall at best and most have little pilot figures with them that are jointed and posable and have tiny magnets in their feet to help with standing. Surprisingly posable and stable for how tiny they are, with a lot of customization due to the ports and accessories they come with.

    That's the only thing I can figure at this point but I figured I should give some benefit of the doubt. Not sure why, but hey.

    What are you even hoping to accomplish here?

    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.
  21. 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.

    Hi-Metal R

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