  1. Thanks for the review GabrielV! I had cancelled my order for the SOC 2022 Yamato as soon as I saw: I'm still debating whether I'll get it, given that the differences from the SOC 2199 Yamato are very slight, apart from the turrets being remote controlled and the expanded sound and music samples. Maybe I'll bite when the price gets lower in the secondary market.
  2. Wow, I was wondering where everyone was at when the pre-orders came up. So there was no official announcement for the pre-order dates? When I saw the Tamashii page for the End Game Figuarts, I browsed the links for each figure, and checked their release dates. I saw that they would be releasing starting April to June, so I looked at NY and the other hobby sites to see if any of the figures were already up. The first time I looked they weren't up yet. Then I saw ps99042's post about Thanos being already sold out, at Cdjapan and Amiami, so I rushed to check NY again, and was lucky enough to see Thanos open for pre-order. I waited and checked to see if NY would open orders for the other figures, and sure enough, they began putting them up for pre-order in increments of about 10 to 15 minutes in between. I was not able to check the other sites to see what time they were put up for pre-order. I would also be quite upset if I missed out on these because there was no pre-order announcement. I missed quite a lot of the earlier Marvel Figuarts and had to pay aftermarket prices for some to get my collection up to date. Since then, I had this thread on auto-email notification to see when the latest releases would come out (thank you Macrossworld!) I hope you guys get a chance to pre-order the figures from another online hobby shop.
  3. Bandai is also apparently re-issuing a lot of the old Iron Man suits, as well as Tony Stark from Iron Man 3. I guess they're going to milk the hype for Avengers Endgame as much as they can. Hehe!
  4. And lastly, the Iron Man Mark 85: https://www.nippon-yasan.com/figures/27815-shfiguarts-iron-man-mark-85-avengers-endgame.html Man those last two were nail-biters. The NY wheel of death spun quite a bit before I got my pre-orders in. See you all after the End Game!
  5. Iron Man Mark 50 Nano Weapons Set 2 is up: https://www.nippon-yasan.com/figures/27814-shfiguarts-iron-man-mark-50-nano-weapon-set-avengers-endgame.html Traffic at NY went up since this was posted, so hurry before its gone!
  6. And Ant-Man: https://www.nippon-yasan.com/figures/27809-shfiguarts-ant-man-avengers-endgame.html with his ride: https://www.nippon-yasan.com/figures/27810-shfiguarts-ant-ant-man-wasp.html
  7. Available at NY, go, go, go! https://www.nippon-yasan.com/figures/27807-shfiguarts-thanos-avengers-end-game.html EDIT: And just like that, he's gone. Managed to secure one in the few minutes that it was open.
  8. Here we gooo! The floodgates have been opened for End Game merch! Looks like Bandai has had more of the nano weapons in the pipeline. With the Bandai Nano Weapons Set 2 and Takara Tony's Nano Weapons Sets A, B, and C, my Mark 50 is going to have a lot of wonderful toys to play with. The Mark 85 is also an instabuy for me, although it looks a little bare without any bundled Nano Weapons. I wonder if the Mark 50's Nano Weapons will fit it? Will probably get End Game Thanos, but on the fence about Cap, Black Widow, Antman and Ronin. Disappointed that Cap does not have an alternate head with no helmet. Maybe the head from the Civil War Cap will fit it? Love the added texture on his suit though. It seems Marvel is paying one last homage to the comic book costumes of Cap and Iron Man. A fitting swan song for them since End Game is supposedly their last movie. I also love the texture on Black Widows suit. I don't have any Black Widow figures yet, so I might bite on this one. But then I'll need Hawkeye... Speaking of which, how come Ronin has no bow? Maybe he ditched the bow in the events prior to End Game? I guess all shall be revealed this 26th of April.
  9. There are instructions in his posts. You have to pay the full amount first through paypal, then PM him your complete name, address and country.
  10. Hey guys! Just came across these cool third party Nano Weapons Set for the Figuarts Iron Man Mk 50. After seeing reviews from youtube, I went ahead and pre-ordered Sets A, B and C from the maker, Takara Tony via his facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100019686341010 Anybody ordered this as well?

    I understand the price increase of Arad's ride in anticipation of the Armor Pack release. But a 200 percent price increase? Did Ozma's go up that much after his armor pack were announced?

    Wow, NY is already selling Arad for 68,000. That's quite a markup. Everybody loves an armored valk leader, I guess.
