    As far a NY goes, I only use them if I have to or if their price is lower than everyone else. The more people that boycott them the less competition I will have getting my fix of Collectables. I understand wanting things as soon as possible, but I can wait. So long as I get my orders. You just gotta beat down the envy/jealousy that wells up when everyone here starts to receive their orders. They are French owned (I believe), so expect French-like service? Whatever that is...
  3. If the Ozone Elimator generates ozone, I would advise against it. Ozone can degrade things like rubber. Like anything, research first, it may be OK. Arm & Hammer claims their product eliminates order. Maybe put everything in a lidded container with baking soda refrigerator style (non-contact)?
  4. Yeah, jenius pushed me down the Macross collecting rabbit hole too. I got into the Arcadia and HMR stuff because of his reviews. When he really like something he makes you really like it too. Then the want grows... I was under the impression that you were thinning out your collection in preparation to move or something. I guess I was wrong?
  5. Oh my GOD! It's the Jetfire origin story! The people of Cybertron take a VF-1S and turn it into Jetfire!
  6. I think our best bet for the video quality you are looking for is to try to find a LaserDisc copy of the movie. VCD tends to be highly compressed and thus poor quality. Your major problem is that unless you can find a good quality, working CRT, everything you play the movie back on will be stretched. Either the playback device or the television monitor will stretch the video. How well it dose that is highly dependent on the hardware/software used and your personal preferences. As Noel pointed out, NTSC/PAL is 320x240, DVD is 720x480, HD is 1920x1080, roughly. Your vintage copy of DYRL, whatever you decide on in the end, will get stretched (maintaining aspect ratio hopefully) to whatever vertical resolution your monitor is. Remastering and the quality of it is something I really do not want to get into. It's a very large can of worms.
  7. If you got snacks/food to go along with it, then yes! Totally!
  8. Happy New Year! I will argue that Valkyries are very "Doll" like. A lot of you baby them, play dress up with armor/missiles/SSP, and depending on which ones you have, you can play Mommy/Daddy or romance dating with them. You can even get a hanger to play house!
  9. Going to give Choujikuu Seiki Orguss 02 a go. No real expectations other than it will likely be weird.
  10. Give it 2 or 3 years and that price will feel reasonable.
  11. Toothpaste is probably way too course. Novus Plastic Polish or equivalent if you can get it. I've seen a co-worker turn a clear plastic motorcycle visor opaque using toothpaste.
  12. The reality is that no one can pick out a better gift than you can pick out for yourself. The rest of you that are still waiting for your shipments: Look on the bright side. At least your boxes are less likely to be crushed in shipping from the holiday shipping rush. You would be a lot more upset if your shipping box was crushed, the contents damaged and the seller was unable to replace the item.
  13. Being that it is 2019 (soon to be 2020), I haven't seen any replicas of Kaneda's bike with the proper electric drive. Granted, I haven't been looking that hard to see if anyone has made one though. I'm thinking gas or LNG engine generator with electric drive? The MOSPEADA confuses me. It sounds like an some type of internal combustion engine, but exactly is HBT anyway?
  14. I hope those are Hong Kong Dollars, not US Dollars.
