  1. I'm in the middle of finishing the basement, so I'm trying to keep purchases to a minimum, but does anyone know if Fext is planning to redo the SciFi line again since they are sold out (except for 04)?

    I got my Regult missile set for about $215 shipped by finding a Japanese seller on ebay that was accepting offers. I started fairly low and kept incriminating by like one dollar each time my offer expired. I think I finally annoyed him into accepting my offer.

    Agreed- I like the deck-breaking firepower Monster most.
  4. Yep- this room is kept mostly dark and I've still had yellowing on a few toys. I've seen people keep their stuff sealed in the box and still had yellowing, so you try to reduce it but things happen.

    The Meptoys Breetai beating on Hikaru
  6. Got my Yellow from BBTS. No stress marks on the plastic/metal connection and I was *super* careful moving that piece going to armor mode. I did pop off my windshield- like the above posts, no breakage on tab, it just is the glue wasn't enough to hold in position. I decided to just throw the piece in the saddlebag for now while it's in armor mode. I need to go check @jenius transformation guide since I haven't figured out how to pop out the upper VTOL jet on the wheel hubs (I tried gently pulling on the small flap and only managed to pop that off). I'm glad the instructions made it clear you have to pull the missile doors upwards to be able to open them, because I kept pulling the door off before I looked at the instructions and was wondering if they fraked that up. Makes more sense when the hinge slides upwards. I also took the picture and then noticed I hadn't straightened one of the blades, but was too lazy to take another picture after.
  7. Just got my BBTS notification of shipping as well.

    And now my HMR purchases are done for a bit.

    I got my Monster for like $210 but I'd still pay that price. My shelf is getting a bit busy now- it's hard to take a photo that highlights anything. This next is especially hard to photograph with Lego Voltron dominating behind them. Also just got a Meptoys Breetai, so I'm likely gonna have him clubbing Hikaru's 1J in my next set of poses.
  10. No MSRP that I've seen yet, as MEPToys was working on getting the Breetai figures out. It is planned to go into production after the Chinese New Year- i'd seen some cost ideas thrown out at around $15 with a three pack being less, but that was when the toy was planned to be slightly smaller scale. I'll post when I see anything.
  11. Given it is the same scale as the CM's and Toynami/Aoshima, I'm guessing the 160mm is probably just measuring to top of head (I know my own measurement of my CM's drone was slightly shorter than 16cm and @jenius's page puts the toys at 17cm which probably measures to top of the sensor antennae. Even if that is to top of sensor, it's not a signifacant;y smaller toy than the previous ones.
  12. I believe the legs can pivot some (it wasn't part of the prototype). The toes don't seem to pivot independently though.

    Except for the Missile Regults, I'm done for a little bit. Honest.
  14. Yeah, every time I get a notification from BBTS I get excited, only to see it is a preorder opening for something else.

    Millia is here and now she's wait for Max to show up. Then I just have Roy and two CFs and then I don't have any others coming. Honest.
  16. I am so glad I'm only getting gashapon Gundams, because my wallet could not survive getting a bunch of greenies (and I'd need a bunch).
  17. Looks more like it got squashed some rather than someone rummaged through it, since the Bumblebee is still in there.
  18. Probably was the conversion rate when they put up the preorder.
  19. I've got a space all prepped behind my Beagle VR-052T just waiting for mine to head this way.
  20. I asked my Max to demonstrate for you, but he got rude and told me to have another of my DXs do it instead. I told him he was my only DX and I wasn't getting another until Roy's 1S, and this is how he treated me:
  21. All the fingers have the knuckles.
  22. And all of Jenius' video reviews has a link in the first comment, which makes it easy. Especially if you are going to then use BBTS to purchase said item (if still available). Small way to pay back for all his reviews, which I've used to inform some of my own purchasing (or to discover what extent of certain things are out there) since sometime in the early 2000s. Just the other day someone claimed there was a Shadow Beta released by Aoshima/Toynami and I was pretty sure there wasn't. A quick look at anymoon.com confirmed it never got released.
