Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

Recommended Posts

I know we have a collection display thread, and a market watch thread, but I thought we need a "Hey check out what I just bought, aren't you jelly?" thread to post your new acquisitions that might not be displayed yet!

Post macross stuff, memorabilia, other toy lines, stands ect.

Post the boxes, or the toys.. not really a thread for full collection displays.

Feel free to tell us about the deal you got too :D

Mods, let me know if it's covered else where.

Anyway, I'll get started with my newest Arrival because I'm so proud of it haha!

Had to chase down the mailman after he tried to get away with leaving a "We missed you!" Note on the door.

Nice. I'm still thinking whether to get one or wait for arcadia's release. How much was it?

Haha! They do that a lot. Gotta keep a lookout on delivery day.

I really like my new delivery man. He knocks pretty loud twice and doesn't bitch about coming up the stairs haha

Haven't had delivery man experiences yet. I've heard stories though. Bad ones mainly. >< I'll get a taste of it when my 2 preorders come in december. Hopefully it's not too bad..

Not that bad considering the prices on the 30th anni strike packs now lol.

I was happy that I finally tracked down that Max 1J -- they were web-exclusives, so they're not easy to find. I scored a pretty decent deal on the Soundwave too. There are quite a lot of people selling their Hasbro TRU exclusive Soundwaves on eBay minus the cassettes -- I'm guessing that they had the Takara versions which only came with Laserbeak, and then bought the Hasbro versions to scavenge the rest of the cassettes. Anyway, found one on eBay that came with the box, all the accessories, and Laserbeak, and managed to win him at auction for $70.

Been an awesome week for me for toys :D

The Low viz is still taped and unopened! 250 shipped for a MISB low viz is pretty fuggin amazing haha.

The Alert is MISB, I got it for $115 shipped from a place in the states. It's a C3 Chinese (legit) version, but I was able to get the sticker off.

The hi-metal line is 1/00 scale. They're small, but excellent toys. I wouldn't say that they are better than the Yamato/Arcadia valks -- after all, they are pretty small -- but they do have certain features that put them above Yamato valks in some ways. I think they have the best battroid mode in terms of articulation and posability, and I prefer the way they implemented the shoulder transformation mechanism over Yamato's.

That said, they are not 100% perfect transformation. You have to swap out the canopy cover, and the landing gears are not integrated. Also given their size relative to a Yamato 1/60, they are hard to find at a reasonable price. I got mine for 6,000 yen at Mandarake before shipping.
