  1. Not to be argumentative but your previous post's criticism lead me to believe you either haven't read the LN or aren't recalling all the details. A lot of what was criticized was better developed or explained in the corresponding LN. Obviously it's not the viewers responsibility to have read the source material. The Anime should stand on it's own merits. I don't generally hold LNs to exceedingly high standards as it's essentially pulp fiction but in every instance I have encountered the LN is inevitably better developed even if it's not by that much. That's also to be expected as the anime treatment is generally just a animated commercial for the LN. I've only read one series so far that is more of full well developed novel and that's Saihate no Paladin. Still in that each volume is fairly short so not much can be depicted. The fact the art in Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou anime looks like Monster Musume is disappointing. The color art of the character designs included in the LN is actually pretty nice. I've read a few LNs were the art style change in the anime has irked me. I can't bring myself to watch or read KonoSuba. It's entirely too much slapstick from what I sampled. I do not have the patience for that anymore. I enjoy the change of pace TenSura and Death March kara provide. They're pretty low key and slow paced slice of life style isekai stories. I do find the food trope stuff in them annoying though.
  2. Based on the criticism in here for Monster Musume no Oisha-san and The Misfit of Demon King Academy I won't be bothering to watch them. Seems like conversion from LN to Anime didn't go well in either instance. I'm used to a bit being lost in translation like most of the background info in Mahouka but some conversions are worse than others. It should be conveyed that Saphentite is the only real love interest at least initially ( I haven't read all the volumes yet) in Monster Girl Doctor. I've been watching the The 8th Son and My next life as a villainess. The former I enjoy the setting but the protagonist is a bit too passive. The latter is too humorous for my taste.
  3. I'd like to see an RX-77D and a WD's repaint. I won't hold my breath though. I'm also curious if we'll see a AGX-04 Gerbera Tetra released. I've pretty much decided to stick to early UC releases but I've still picked up a few of the other designs that have caught my eye. Mostly just the Mass Produced units. I'm hopeful at some point they will do the 08th MS units again. I have the pre Anime Gouf custom and it's alright. I won't buy as many as I did with MSiA obviously
  4. I've been reading the Light Novels and they were alright. Nothing exceptional but seemingly a new angle on the monster girl setting. Define weird. Is there an exceptional amount of fan service or something in the anime? I know the pacing is odd because being a Doctor there is some investigation involved in every arc.
  5. I know, so true. The whole industry is like that. The price on Figma has really inflated as well which you really only notice if you've been buying them since the beginning. MSiA/EMSiA were in the ¥1500 to ¥2500 price range back in what 2007? Even the early RD Figures were much cheaper. I believe the pre Anime version of the GM Sniper II was around ¥2500 as well. It''s not as nice of a figure obviously. A little less polished with less features but still it was a solid offering. Don't get me wrong the engineering and the base medium have improved greatly but I'm not sure that makes the 200% plus price hike any more palatable. That's not even considering the Tamashii web shop exclusive releases.. I received my effects parts set. Nice setup if you don't want to buy all the various individual figures for the battle damage effect parts. I'd like to see something like this for the thrusters and weapons if it isn't already in the works.
  6. So many releases coming out for the UC fans. Really surpassing MSiA/EMSiA in terms of selection. RGM-79C GM Type C Space https://tamashii.jp/special/gundam_anime/gm_space.html MS-06F-2 Zaku II F2 https://tamashii.jp/special/gundam_anime/zaku2_f2.html
  7. It's worth noting that while you get 2 stands you only get 1 "crotch hook". There's 2 of the standard claws included. I've provided a picture of the back of the new and old stand boxes for piece reference.
  8. Follow up on my previous stand post. I finally picked up one of the new humanoid stand packs and surprisingly it actually has new pieces. I hadn't seen this noted anywhere but perhaps I didn't look hard enough. The arm and claw piece are all new. Not really necessary for RD figures since they have a plug but great for other figures. Would still work well with GFF or MSiA/EMSiA. It's worth noting you still get way less option pieces with the new stand but they may not be necessary.
  9. I am an original owner of a Blue Toynami Alpha. I haven't had a problem with the hands yet. It is however very floppy and hard to stand without any assistance. Has everyone had problems with the hands? I am curious how prevalent that issue is.
  10. Technically is available in the US. Bluefin is the US distributor for Bandai and I've bought Tamashii stands from them before. I haven't been to any shows were they have had a booth in over a year so I'm not sure if that's still the case,
  11. The original price was ¥1,040 at HLJ and ¥980 at AmiAmi. Though prices on line tended to fluctuate as high as $20 iirc. The 2 pack I received recently was $10. I did not get it from HLJ and the website did not have the details documented quite as specifically. I'm assuming they removed 1 stand and some of the other pieces to keep the MSRP down but I'm a bit disappointed honestly. I can't imagine it costs all that much to produce these at this point. They've been using the same design for ~10 years. I picked up GoodSmile's simple stand 3 pack to evaluate as a possible replacement. MSRP is ¥1,091.
  12. The MegaHouse versions are better toys. You can play with them without worries. I prefer the size and the look/color of the plastic as well. With the CMs they are more accurate and you have more options like the trading figures.
  13. It's not the combination stand. I have some of those as well and they are preferable in certain situations. It's definitely a mechanics stand and it comes with less pieces than before. I thought I still had an original mechanics stand box for reference but I couldn't locate it. I did however find a humanoid for comparison. The original humanoid and mechanics were the same box with different inserts.
  14. I never thought I would get a GM Cannon let alone two different styles. It's nice the African Campaign Type comes with a GM type beam rifle as well. Still waiting for a White Dingos version though. Also anyone know when the Tamashii stands became 2 per pack? I swear both the mechanic and humanoid used be 3 per.
