Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

Recommended Posts

All the SG people :D nice to know.

Close, I was eyeing that SSP too. But decided to hold back for a reissue. Was so tempted to sniper it. Haha. Nice grab though.

I'm wondering now.. Where else are you all finding these valks locally? So far I've only seen csc, plaza, tfh. Havent seen any of the more popular valks around. Then again.. I dont try to search much since all that I've seen are pretty steep. Online's cheaper anyway. Just pm if possible so we dont derail this any further :p

It was 130$, but it's definitely used. But the joints are tight so I can't complain.

I never bothered with DHL because I figures it's more expensive. But apparently DHL has a main

Route from Tokyo to CT, and if you have a business address, it's 50% less than

Residential delivery. I got the shipping notice yesterday morning, and by the time I left work

A text from DHL saying delivery scheduled for tomorrow.

I was like damn!

good price all around.

My renewal was MIB, with everything sealed,

I had it up for sale for a while on the forums but got no interests,

all of a sudden I got an offer for a straight up trade for a Takara starscream MP(grey/dark version) which in my opinion was a pretty decent fair deal, so i went with it & got to say , Im pretty satisfied with the deal.

I just recently started to build my MP collection but Macross takes priority!! lol

Nice deal on the 25F, I think I saw that one too. That's definitely the low end of the prices I've seen for the 25F on Mandarake. I bought one from them a while back for $150 MISB. I figured I got a good deal since that was about what it retailed for. But I've seen them list it for higher too -- I think there's one there now that's been warming the shelf for a while at $220.

This just arrived from Rakuten :D

In the end it was only $20 more than pre-ordering the May 2014 re-release (compared to preordering from NY or using Tenso to buy from Tamashii directly), and I just couldn't wait! :p

Amazing how chunky the old 1/60 looks now.

what part broke? was it the neck hinge? if it is, glue wil not hold, there's a shapeways replacement.

I dont understand why they made it so hard to pop the neck on the v1. First time i handled it i thought i was going to break it! Seeing how tight it is, i hope your glue is strong enough

Personally, I'd leave it as is. it'll make an interesting display with the Arcadia YF-19.

I thought That piece was for the VF-19's?

The glue worked but it's in forever fighter mode.

Which is fine because every other mode is a floppy failure.
