Is that the HLJ replacement? ThreeZero needs to put metal in their joints, especially at these prices. This doesn't make me hopeful for my for repair. 

Yes this is the second one that HLJ mailed me. Just not dealing with it anymore. Can't leave this much money tied up in a pos like this.

It will probably break in other places in a few months and I'll be fraked.

 

Beyond angry.

Welp. I'm done with threeZero now and forever.

The replacement that they sent me has a split in the left arm bicep and the socket popped out after rotating it twice.

 

This is pretty much scam level of bad. I've never been this pissed off at a toy company. DO NOT BUY THREEZERO. They are scam artists. It's cheap, poorly designed crap that has a nice paint job.

 

Send it back and get refunds now before it crumbles on your desk.

Ouch!

That's a major bummer.

Hope you at least get your money back.

Got a 1/12v1. Not as bad as I thought it would be. Actually a very good item, imho, and not as wobbly as Chachi's/RPA's.

Waiting on some weapons to dress it up a bit like the others...

Takara 1/48, Bandai 1/20, Takara 1/18, Yamato 1/12v1

I like the 1/18 scale more. ;)

I learned something new about Yamato 1/12 version 1 toys recently. The Parachute sack gift-set comes with exactly the same red shoulder toy that was available separately... for some reason I thought it had a different 'red' on the shoulder. I think it's because the box has a picture on the back where the red shoulder looks darker. In hindsight, it's pretty obvious that the gift-set would be the same since they sold at the same time.

I like the 1/18, too, but the Yammie 1/12v1 is really not that far off from it.

Granted, it's very generic in paint/details and even accessories, but it really handles about as good or even better than the DMZs.

I only wish the RSC kit and/or the LRS/Odon versions are readily available and not scalper-priced as they both are right now.

Still, you really oughta get at least one for your collection.  Especially since you seem to like customizing and stuff.  I might panel-lined mine later on, but the current generic non-detailed look is actually fine with me.

Fwiw, I just received both my LRS kit and Weapons set-3 packs...   :bump:

Hopefully they finally fixed the issues jenius and capedbaldy encountered with their actual Scopedog...

They should do a website exclusive Melkia version with parachute pack! I'd buy it. Speaking of which... I haven't heard about my Scopedog that's undergoing repairs for a couple weeks now....

I'm confused why these aren't AG-EX releases. What's the difference between EX and V? Many of the EX releases are combo packs, none of the original V releases were other than the Transporter which came with a Scopedog (AG-V14).

Volks 1/8 was really a huge one.

Out of curiosity. When did that 1/8 scale got released and is that a resin kit? If so, what's the initial MSRP?

Thanks!

Not sure when the 1/8 got released and no idea how much the initial msrp was.  Looks like a resin-kit, tho.

We got somebody in this thread that posted a mag-scan of it back in the day.

The dude in the TD-thread seems to have started building his kit back in 2011.

I got my AG-V19 in today... but I don't get it. Why does it come with the Uoodoo spec Red Shoulder custom? What does that have to do with the Battle on Quent? I mean, it's a cool Scopedog and all but wouldn't a normal scopedog have made more sense?

I reckon Takara surmised nobody in Japan wants yet-another V01, so they opted to include a V05 instead coz the fans can never have enough RSCs.

It would've been better if they actually made an actual articulated AG Zwarg instead of that static kit they bundled with that set.

At any rate, my AG-V18 should finally get delivered next week with Nendo Lum...

 

:bump:

My problem with preordering these AG releases, which I would love to support, is how quickly they become available at huge discounts. Two months after release it seems like you can get them for 33% off. Before I've even opened mine I feel like I've way overpaid.

Where do you get them at 33% off?

Japanese second-hand shops... but they're all still MISB. Like after 2 months local stores sell their leftovers to other stores at breakeven pricing and then those stores can sell them at big discounts and still make a profit.
