Hehe! I'll happily wear the blame Noel! 

Im not sure Autoart ever did a Rothmans livery 959.. but I'd have to check. I had a silver road car 959 by AA in my former collection and was in fact eyeballing getting one again! There are plenty of other very nice Porsche models, 911 for example out there available.

I did briefly consider one of those Redbull concept cars but decided against it in favor of something else. They are ok I guess but im not a huge fan of concept cars. I'd rather have actual production models in my collection. 

Is there anything else you're considering?

You're entire Macross collection for FREE! :yahoo:

And I would also recommend MHtoyshop.com. $8.00 flat rate and the packaging is top notch. Tissue paper around the figure itself, then bubble wrap, and packaging paper. 

Do they carry Macross stuff? If not, pass. Hehehe. j/k :lol:

yeah! 100 Valkyries at $500 each which covers cost of replacing each one with shipping. That is a rough average and includes appreciation of Valkyrie pricing over the last few years. Hey I gotta cover myself appropriately! ^_^

Oh and enough is never enough! even 4 of.. :D

I have to say if there's members here who supports Arcadia inspite of their lack of releases, QC problems, wrong color choices, repaints, and reissues, there's also members here who supports Macross Delta inspite of its issues.  ^_^

No offense meant, Anubis. Great hauls by the way. Too bad they put the stickers over Makina. ;)

I'm just pointing out to people that you don't need to rub anything of/against everyone's picks and choices. :rolleyes:

WE ARE the reason why this people still have business. ^_^ 

 

Now back to our regular programming.

Yup I disliked Delta but its a release that has subs and I support that. Im voting with my wallet, and I want more Macross with subs ^_^ So far I have SDF, DYRL (Bootleg I think), Macross Plus, the Frontier movies, and Delta all with English subs. ^_^ The sticker comes off, Amazon puts them on but i didnt bother taking it off for the pic :lol:

....Screw Harmony Gold BTW :lol:

how do you like the Downbeat? is the rear bumper really detached in alt mode? all the preview images from behind have like the white part of his rear bumper way below normal, not sure if its Jazz's shins or was a mis transformation.. I like Maketoys more than Toyworld.. but hesitant on purchasing either of them...

I asked the same thing a few posts back. Nothing changed, it still has the ugly rear. That was the deal breaker for me or I would have been all over this Jazz release.

ugh. boo.. thanks for the quick response-

well, I guess can either wait for if/when official Takara release or just always keep him in Bot mode. I saw the online Chinese review of him, I thought it was really well done but they purposely didn't show the rear!

 

also. who needs four VF-31Js?! I cant even get one. sheesh.

Yea the back bumper or whatever it wants to be just hangs out the back. I really dont mind it, MP Sideswipe has similar junk hanging in the back as well as Tracks. Compromises had to be made but it is the only disappointing thing about Downbeat. Robot mode though he is perfect IMO :wub:

Apparently some member does. It's either they have a lot of money to burn. :rolleyes: Or they just want to display it in all forms and have extra. ^_^ Uhm, what's that term again? Oh... SPANNERIZED! :lol:

Ok. What's the deal again on the rear bumper on Jazz (Downbeat) figure? Sorry, I don't have a clue on every 3P Transformers items.

I passed on it because of the ugly bumper, swirly plastic, and it being the wrong Porsche.

The bumper and the plastic I get (same reason I didn't buy) but I'm pretty sure it's the same Martini 935 that the G1 toy was based on.

Thanks VX31! Now I get it. So there's no way to push that upward, correct? Is it more like an afterthought concept?

I mean. with the 935 Porsche race car had some ridiculously high side skirts and rear bumper designs, so props to Maketoys in trying to get it vehicle correct. but with that, you get the leg kibble coming down under the chassis... prob a design tradeoff since they couldn't tuck the leg hinges and everything underneath... too bad-

Another new arrival! Never got ahold of a 30th Anniversay Roy way back in the day. I wanted the option parts in the old DYRL white and I plan on Frankensteining my own 1S with fixed shoulders and a proper canopy tint. :)

I dunno. There's zero padding between the item and the box. Unless he took all the padding out and put everything back in the shipping box just for this picture. :lol:

Hey guys, got Mirage from HLJ. She shipped (EMS) out Saturday night and got in this morning. I think Mirage was about $36.00 or so, was worth the $$$. :D

well don't I feel like a jack ass.. I cancelled my HLJ order and went with NY only for them to be taking their time processing it.. why would they be sitting on it for so long?

I emailed them but in typical NY fashion, no reply yet.

Got these from HLJ last week.

IMG_7124_zpslukqgj95.jpg

Nintendo Classic Mini Family Computer from AmiAmi. One for me, one for my Dad. Already asked a friend to add more games into it. ;) 

IMG_7126_zpsia9yekjx.jpg

And this week I got this from GundamModelCenter. The other should've been Metal Club 00Raiser but they accidentally sent me a Dragon Momoko 1/100 Strike Freedom kit along with the Wing Conversion Effect Part set. I'm just waiting for their reply since it's holiday in China right now.

IMG_7122_zpscrb976zf.jpg

And today, finally this one arrived too from eBay courtesy of MaximaBuy. Minty-minty. ^_^

And of course for my 7 yr old son. It's not an AutoArt display piece but he loves it. ;)

Because NY sucks. 

Maybe they're calculating how much extra the shipping is going to be before sending another invoice. :p

Has anyone had problems with hlj orders? I bought a set of Act 5 stands 3 months ago, and still no news of it.:wacko:

What does the status say under the open orders of your account?  Did you get any request for payment emails?  Was it a preorder?
