I was kind of in a picture taking mood today, probably should used my other camera though. After having the CMs & Toynami Alphas in my hands again I so can't wait to see what the Sentinel Legioss feels like, pricey or not it's got to be better in QC than these. IMG_8392.JPG.ee915a9e11f7df0d84c1be21369a80ff.JPGIMG_8375.JPG.6d4b2cf86f5d2658229f60111990b5ae.JPGIMG_8401.JPG.181254b72750f15b6a89cfcea54681ad.JPG

Most impressive 505th'd.  Must have taken time, patience, a lot of coin to assemble that collection.

I'm going to be super bummed if Evolution doesn't release a Tread.

Thanks @Mazinger, It's been quite a few years in the making. Luckily the Alpha Poseable's are fairly cheap and I bargain hunted the hell out of the MPC's especially after my experience with Maia's Alpha, it looks good but a total QC nightmare.

Prepared to be bummed, I seriously can't see Evo Toys making a Beta/Tread and trying to get $300+ for one.

Your hope should be in sentinel, not evolution toy.

Sorry, that's what I meant.:crazy:

Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

I don't have hope for Sentinel to do it.  I'm quite sure they will.

It is a beautiful collection. I do love the look of my MPC alphas but I don't transform them out of fighter mode anymore out of fear of them falling apart. I mess around with my MPC beta all the time, but wish the shadow beta had actually been released.  :(

It's true!  Sentinel's barely opened pre-orders, and they've already delayed from July to August!  :o

It was a link off of this thread? I can't remember where it was though.:unknw:

It took me right to the Alpha page. Your link in the quote above takes me to their "front page". Is that how that's supposed to work? It still somehow knows that your the referrer?

I suppose I could cancel my current order and put a new one in linked by you just to be sure. I'm not sure if that will drive BBTS nuts or not though.:blink:

Oh no need to cancel. Yes, that is the link that tells BBTS I've sent traffic their way, it doesn't go directly to any item, just the store.

I think I click it every time I watch one of your videos, even if I'm not buying.

Is that how that works? It's a traffic thing? I'll click them all the time then too!

I think they actually track both the track and the conversion to sales rate. So, traffic helps, buying things while you're there also helps :). I updated my bookmark so I'm always shopping there under my link

I put a transformation guide up for the classic 1/35 scale toy yesterday and have mostly updated the old text review on the site with all new higher definition/4K photos. Thanks to Tekering I was able to get this box shot up:

Some day I'll hope to get other language variants and that faux anime version up also. 

I'm surprised how much fun I had doing this review... though my red Alpha is a bit of a QC dud. It occurred to me that a big part of the reason I always think of the Alpha as being a very chunky fighter is because this toy has left such an impression on me. It's like a gorilla in soldier mode.

Love the red on that. 
 

torn on whether to pick up the blue ride armor and wait for the red legioss, or get the blue legioss and hope they make it to the red ride armor. Not sure I can afford more than one of each, and I generally don’t like to do multiples of molds. 
 

hmm.

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.

Appreciated!

Do people need to make a purchase or does it work in your favor just by clicking and being sent to the bbts website?

I honestly don't know. I suspect that both are tracked. So all traffic is good traffic and related spend is even better. Thanks for the support guys! 

Man, I might come back from Thanksgiving with the in-laws to have both a VR-41H and a VF-1S DX waiting for me... it's going to be a real tough decision on which to crack open first. Probably the VF-1S since the VF-1 is still the king (when it comes to views at least :))
