Looks like OVA 2 is up for preorder now.

yup.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/6317849846/

7/23

stupidly shocking expensive po-pricing at US$60???  it should go down in pricing.

At any rate, let's see.  I do hope these are the native bluray versions instead of the yet-another-sd-versions.

9 episodes should be:

-- six for Phantom Arc

-- one each for Case:Irvine, Votoms Finder and "Chirico's Return" <-- gotta be the "Alone Again" ova.

-- still no Pailsen Files Movie nor Mellow Link.  WTF, MaidenJapan???!!! <_<

I bought both of the first ones, doing my little bit to support the series of releases so that we will hopefully get Mellowlink, but I'm a little disappointed that there's still no word on that coming...

You might want to check if those dvd's are still playable.

I've had some of my old dvd's (anime and otherwise) giving me playback issues for whatever reason nowadays.

DVD's begin to degrade after some time...

Little information is available for CD-ROM and DVD-ROM discs (including audio and video), resulting in an increased level of uncertainty for their life expectancy. Expectations vary from 20 to 100 years for these discs.

The older the DVD, the worse LE I would expect the discs to have... gotta go check some of my OG Collection now...

Yeah I agree, said to myself I'll just buy one to see what's the fuss about. Now have more than this but the rest have to stay in boxes as I  only have limited shelf space at the moment.

I adore my Actic Gear collection. Still looking for some of the event exclusives. I also adore my CM's vinyl collection Patlabor toys... just missing one of the Tsaiyo variants to complete it. Sadly, I couldn't even tell you which box they're in in storage...

What do you mean?

I have the 1/20 LRS Turbo Custom.  Got it from Mandarake years ago.

Yeah. Shipping to the US is a bitch for it.  Think it was 5200yen or so when I got it.

As such, it's usually offered at ami and mandarake in opened/slight-box-damage condition.

I just saw both the LRS TC and the recent Sansa Red Shoulder TC over there right now at both sites. 

Fwiw, think Bandai cheaped out by making the turbo-heels not wheels on the TC.

Also, the feet spikes are solid single mould part as well.

Quite unlike the separate-pieces/movable spikes of the regular non-turbo 'dogs.

Are you in the US or elsewhere?  It may depend on which country they can ship to.

fwiw, I'm in the US so the kits are usually shipped via EMS or DHL only, and gets really pricey quickly.

Only the Sahra store gives out shipping-fees cost before actually placing your order. 

The others usually don't and/or only after you actually placed the order.

At any rate, here's the 8k-yen from the Sapporo store:

https://order.mandarake.co.jp/order/detailPage/item?itemCode=1112217209&lang=en

There's another LRS at the Complex store for 9k-yen.

add/edit:

Sahra, Shibuya, and Kokura stores has the recent Sansa Red Shoulder for 10k-yen:

https://order.mandarake.co.jp/order/DetailPage/item?itemCode=1097260618&lang=en

add/edit2:

Here are ami's links (they're a bit more pricey since they add tokyo-tax on their items) :

LRS with turbo-sack pack: https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?gcode=TOY-RBT-4125-R

LRS without the turbo-sack pack: https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?gcode=TOY-RBT-4156-R

Sansa Red Shoulder: https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?gcode=TOY-RBT-4938-R

Sansa Red Shoulder with bonus clear-file: https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?gcode=TOY-RBT-4678-R

and they even have the Space Dog kit: https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?gcode=TOY-RBT-4576-R

Oh you're in Oz.

Yeah. You guys got some new restrictive laws and stuff about imports that the Mandarake shops most likely don't want to deal with anymore. I think Sahra had a 2k-yen Actic Gear Brutish Dog recently, too.

It's a bummer.

I think Ami-ami is possibly the only shop that will still ship these particular LRS kits to you, albeit very very expensively most likely.

Excellent collection.

Hope you do find some other reasonable shops to import your ACs if the Manda-shops don't work out.

Also, iirc, I think there were a couple or so other VOTOMS-fans/collectors based in Oz who will have better information than me on where to get stuff into Oz.  Just can't remember their nicknames anymore.

Anyone built the 1/35 PS version wave kits and have a review on the kit?

Also how do the Takara DMZ toy compare to the bandai 1/20 kit,is it worth the extra coin?

too lazy to take pics myself, but here's an old classic pic from some fan regarding the various scaling of the available 'Dogs back then:

Keq, I have all the wave kits that have come out. They’re all in various stages of building or painting. I love them, but as far as cons, they’re almost more of an older style kit than a modern Bandai gundam. Some have hollow spaces that look better filled with putty and there are some seam lines as well. The other downside is the price. I love the design, so I was willing to pay, but I can see the average builder skipping them. The other downside is the waiting game between the standard release and ps version that will be able to do the down form and will include the pilot  and seat. Another downer is that there are exposed pollycaps in some joints. They’re not highly noticeable in most cases.

on the plus side if you’re willing to spend some time on them they look nice and wave finally released a water slide decal set for all the available kits. There’s a lot of surface details that will look great with washes.

It’s gonna be a bit before I complete anything. I have a huge back log and I temporarily have no garage area for painting. Hopefully closer to the summer I’ll have a few items to show off.

Looking at the upcoming OVA 2 Blu-ray release, it's still at $40, and it's only 290 minutes (though it looks like this one is legitimately all HD).

The first (tv eps.) one was 1630 minutes, for $25, with OVA 1 being 595 minutes and currently at $18 (I paid $35... so much for pre-ordering).

I appreciate getting high def and not just standard def on a Blu-ray disc, but this seems a bit excessive.

Is there a listing for OVA2 already? I'm curious about that.  I figure once I get through my Patlabor Blu-Rays these will be the next thing I purchase (but I'm only watching like one Patlabor episode a month so it's going to take a while).

Yes sir.

It was $60 when it first listed 3 or 4 weeks ago, then went down to $40 recently.

However, seeing how OVA 1 is now down to $18, I might wait a bit. I paid $35, even with the preorder price guarantee.
