Great photos, Kuma.  That's pro toy porn right there :D

Opened this guy up today--my first Metal Build figure.  I'm really impressed with the weight and construction and balance.

Thanks brother, and honestly this pose makes me so excited to take Mazinger for a review and gallery spin. A balanced running pose is one of those things I think complanies just plain take for granted as it's way more rare than it should be.

Juri

Congrats on the vacation and the HMR. That Juri, though... I didn't like her when she first came out, but the artwork and figures of her have won me over handily. I really wish they'd bring back that costume for SFV.

Can I be part of the cool "I-overpaid-but-hell-it-was-worth-it" club?  Just finally got these two birds recently, from this very forum.

Wasn't lucky enough to get the first releases of either one (YF-21 doesn't come w/ fast pack/stand; VF-11B doesn't have flip top box) but just happy to have them in the collection w/o having to pay even higher eVil Bay prices.

Anyone wanna sell me a V2 1/60 Super Ostrich? :)

I just got my first official dx chogokin valk today. It's true. But why is the box so small? Surely it needs to be at least 3 times the size? When you're used to yamato sized boxes that take up half a room it's crazy to think there is a valk in there. Same with the Arcadia yf-19 I got,everything is cramed in. Oh how times have changed :blink:

Does full action mean it’s poseable?

Yes.

If I had known a long time ago that HMR and 1/100 would end up being one of my main scales then I would have bought a lot more stuff.  I have another YF-19 without the Fast Packs coming in.  I might eventually paint that one into a VF-19A.

Nice find, need to find myself a VF-11 some day to go with the YF-21 and -19.

That's a really good price, and kind of tempting.  Do they have a TOS-era D7 to go with it though? :lol: Only down side is that the full lighting on that one would look weird next to the painted windows on the Enterprise.

I need to take a few pics of my recent arrivals, just got in my Arcadia Max, second HMR VE-1, and the Calibre VF-142 F-14A. ^_^

Oh man congrats on Dancouga!! I got mine last October and it is truly amazing! It poses better than a Revoltech, just be careful when handling the shoulder joints. Apparently there were some problems with the shoulders breaking on some and Sentinel issued some tips on how to avoid any problems.

I do! Funny enough Black Wing is what got me to buy the whole thing :lol: At TFCon USA this past September there was a Flame Toys (aka Sentinel) booth and they had Black Wings on sale for 50 bucks! I picked it up just cause it was cheap but it turned out to be good and then i was forced to get a Dancouga and i have no regrets. It looks really good with Black Wing mounted on the back but Black Wing by itself is also a really nice figure. Highly recommend it. 

I also got the up-scaled Eagle Fighter but that one is just ok, get it only if you can get find it for around $50-70.

Nope; not the case! Just haven't picked it up yet. Recently got the Studio half eye dancouga so looking at the rest of what I need and kind of prioritizing. The Giga abd Revoltech are two I know I need but just trying to compile a list before jumping in and finishing. 

 

The goal is to have a full Dancouga museo detolf with toys, DVDs etc.

Thanks for the confirmation. I tried twisting the torso again on mine and while it squeaks/creaks a lot, it’s no longer popping off. Maybe the ball joint just wasn’t properly seated in the factory, and after I reconnected mine it’s now a better fit.

I can use the smaller connector if I make the stance wider or bend the legs, but it’s not long enough for my standing pose. Honestly, I don’t think they needed to include the smaller connector. I would have been happier if they gave us a Stoner Sunshine effect part instead.

No problem! :D A Stoner Sunshine effect would have been great. Everyone that got a Shin Getter should email Sentinel requesting an option set for effects and proper weapons.

I already have that Uncanny X-Force set from a while back.  Just got some doubles.

Out of curiosity, does Iron Spider figure comes with iron legs?

 

No which kind of sucks but I’m sure someone on Toyark will probably make some.

Everyone seems to be looking for the extra legs/claws on the Iron Spider suit, but does the movie version actually have them? I didn’t see any in the trailer, and from what I’ve seen from the MCU they don’t always conform to the content in the comics.
