Since where talking about squished boxes from Amazon.jp at this moment, has anyone wondered about how is Amazon.jp boxes going to fair when Arcadia's PE VE-1 gets shipped out and delivered to those who ordered it on the first week of May? :unknw:

It's concerning but I try not to worry too much about toys. These things bring me joy and I leave the worrying to other crap that happens in life. If anything, I think the shrink wrap helps prevent the box inside from getting damaged.

Sigh... my latest purchase from YJA.:

Yamato 1/60 v2 VF-1A DYRL Hikaru with Super Parts

 

Note:  This is after I had just recently bought the non-Super Part version of the same toy.   *sigh*

 

Anyways, I was watching the most recent Godzilla King of Monsters movie trailer, and I noticed.... they are fighting in Boston!

For 4 years my dorm room had a view of the Charles River, so I'd recognize that CITGO sign anywhere!

Got some stuff in from HLJ. Love the 1D, no real complaints, Captain Marvel is a bit meh, but Broly and Gogeta are fantastic! Love these guys, highly recommended, just like the DB Super Broly movie, I'm 12 and still love Dragon Ball, come at me.

I was in japan for the holidays last week. I was in the Nakano Broadway area and was able to get a V2 1/60 VF-1A (loose with no box, missiles or gun) for $25 and wandered into a pre-owned cellphone/ipad store and got a very good price on a 2018 mac mini.

Another Yammie 1/48 grail came in from Manda before I left for work and no customs slapped on it. 

Getting the corresponding SSP is another question.

Check out Ebay. You will find a trusted seller with an SSP with broken tab and at a great price. I met him in person and can vouch for him as really great seller and person. 

Good Luck.

Throw back to 2015 when I framed some Valkyrie photos.

Not really a purchase of Macross items, but supplies for Macross related materials.

Keep your eye on this link on BigBadToyStore, they haven't gotten in the US Bluefin stock yet, I've seen Broly go on and off of pre-order for the last few days or so.

You wouldn't happen to be looking for one of these to go with it would you?

That looks amazing! I knew you were an amazing modeler. Now you just need Team Anglerfish figures.

I have the Ausf. H and have been wanting to also repaint it for ages now.

@tekering That is beautiful.

Got the 3A DLX Bumblebee and it's just fantastic. Prople either like movie designs or they don't but as a product it's fantastic. I've never seen diecast content like this on something this size and the articulation abd balance are incredible.

DST Kingdom Hearts Sora and Sark.

Cool. Do Sark and Tron come with their Identity Discs? I seem to remember the penalty for losing them being quite severe.

When it comes to character likeness on 1:12 scale figures, Bandai continues to raise the bar:

Wow...!  Thanks, guys!  :hi:  

It's still a work-in-progress -- and the only tank I've ever attempted -- but your support is much appreciated.  ^_^

Oh, and by the way, Kuma...

Marvel Legends MCU figures (larger sized 1/12 figures) seem to pretty good overall with likenesses also.  I’ve got too many to stop, switch over, or blend in other toylines with them.

Any of you ever have USPS misplace a package? How have you gone about trying to find it again?

I've got two packages that last updated nearly two weeks ago now, in the Chicago area. (I'm in Wisconsin.) I've filed a mail search request (on the 22nd or 23rd), but haven't gotten a status update yet. I'm worried someone in Chicago might have misread the shipping label and routed it back to Japan; this is the first time I've had this happen. I don't want to entertain the thought that someone jacked the mail while it was in transit from Chicago to WI.

In the time since the last update, I've had two other packages find their way through customs, one by boat and the other by EMS. The former was delivered yesterday and the latter will be so by tomorrow. Meanwhile, these two are still just "In Transit."

I was under the impression you had to have the shipper issue the request or else the post office ignores it.  I tend to avoid using USPS whenever possible.  Though in a few instances where UPS misplaced a package I've found finding the CEO's contact info. on a charity list and contacting them directly tends to get things moving rather quickly.

You'll have to notify the sender so they can put in a request to find out what happened to it. If it turns up lost, you'll be reimbursed (if it was insured). The process could take months to complete, so if it's something you really wanted and you don't think it'll be available a few months from now, you might ultimately end up having to buy another one.

Thanks. I was able to put in the request online as receiver. If they only respond to sender requests, why even bother offering that option on their website? Ugh. Thanks for letting me know; I'll see if there's a response by Tuesday, then let FJ know, see if they can put in a second request for me.

I rarely care about these things but my first impression was this is rather attractive packaging.  UPS almost beat DHL to the punch until they lost both Thanos and Count Dooku in albuquerque today...
