    Full Metal Panic! Action Figures

    Hey guys, not to rain on your parade or anything like that - but MyKombini was one of the stores that couldn't deliver on the 31A. I had my order cancelled and money refunded immediately but a few members reported that after that happened they briefly listed it for an inflated price (I didn't see for myself). I have ordered other Tamashii exclusives from there before with no issues and hopefully this Metal Build is fulfilled with no issues. Good luck gents!!! -b.

    Nice pics everyone! Got mine yesterday and I'm really surprised with how much I like the 31S over the F and both iterations of the J, especially in Fighter mode. The C still wins the best Delta head design. Can't wait to get the Armor pack whenever that's released. -b.

    Then maybe I read his post wrong, I thought we were of a different mind on a few key points. Either way, all good. LOL - yep! -b.

    Gundam Figure Thread - Newtype GN-002

    Well sh!t, I'm definitely down to get a MB Strike Freedom. Hopefully they won't be too difficult to get. I sold my original awhile ago and I've been kicking myself ever since. -b.

    We will have to agree to disagree on some ideas, even while I see your point about applying whatever "today's" social standards are to "yesterday's" social standards, - some things are abhorrent no matter when they occurred and what was the "norm". Slavery (no matter the culture or continent that it occurred on) wasn't an accomplishment. Genocide, child sacrifice, any number of things people did across the globe or here in the good ole US of A should be looked at as horrible. I don't see mine or anyone else's disgust for those things as irrational or fickle. We agree that history shouldn't be changed or re-written as is so often it is, usually to the detriment of all, it should be remembered as is, the good, bad and ugly, so that we can learn and grow from it collectively. But to be honest, some monuments need to be torn down. It is a slippery slope and where the line in the sand is drawn can be quite arbitrary based on one's own value structure. Mine tells me that I won't blindly respect the past just because "things were different back then". The part in bold - Disney absolutely pulled a CYA. Whether they were right or wrong, I can certainly see how a quick and decisive decision had to be made. Agree with them? Ehhh, maybe so, maybe no, but blame them I don't. -b.

    Wait, did we just equate racism to the "PC standards of today"? And I've read the Adventures of Tom Sawyer, I don't want it banned any more than I want those old Disney cartoons banned, but ugly is ugly and evil is evil - there is nothing PC about that. And yes racism in all forms, at any point in time, is just that - ugly. We shouldn't care what the societal standards were at the time. I really wanted to stay out of this discussion because there really is no "right" or "wrong" as far as we know. We can debate the topic 6 ways from Sunday but no one knows the mind of the person that made the "jokes" in question. At best they were in poor taste and at worst...well there's a special place in hell for folks that hurt children. I'm in the camp that I believe Gunn was trying to be a provocateur vs. airing out some perverse personal desire. But I don't know, and at the end of the day it's not my place to pass judgement. I've formed an opinion and nothing more. All of that said, I sure hope no one judges me as a person based on some nonsense I said 10 years ago. -b. PS - get the Director from Ragnarok or Ant-Man and the Wasp to take over GoTG, Gunn is entirely too toxic at this point, petition or not and support of the folks who actually know him or not

    Also quoted for truth, I wouldn't mind if this was an amazing revival of the old 1/55 line as well. I think it'd play well from a nostalgia perspective AND scale better with the current line of 1/60'ish Valkyries. And considering that I sold every single 1/48 I owned years ago I don't have anything in that scale. But I'm still planning on buying 1...or 2. -b.
