Finally heard back from Mandarake about shipping me the wrong item.

Good news is that they will be sending me my VF-171 and Armored Parts.

And I guess the incorrect figure they sent me is cheap enough that it is not worth it for them to have me ship it back 

I had a similar experience with Jungle. Instead of a Yamato VF-1J, they sent me a v1 Yamato VF-11B. I contacted them and they just refunded me the money, but didn't ask me to send the wrong item back.

The 1:72 YF-11s aren't worth the trouble of sending back, much less the cost of shipping.  :lol:

My first VF-25. Really fiddly, but a nice piece. I won't lie, it had me on the ropes for a few minutes. I really dig though. I do realize having the knife in the shield hand isn't exactly how that's supposed to be done, but he looks cool! I'm absolutely going to have to get a couple more so I can have a fighter and gerwalk thing going on.

Also un-boxed another 1/60 VF-1S Focker. This one is grounded until my Yeti stands come in.

Such a beauty :wub:

Marvel Legends Nightcrawler.  I’ll probably have him converted into X-Force Nightcrawler before Hasbro releases theirs.

1/100 F-15J Aggressor.  I like it.

Mafex John Wick from Chapter 2 and John Wick Chapter 3 blu-ray.

Un-boxed these two guys today. Is the "cloudiness" on/in the VF-31 canopy normal? I bought this used/opened. But it was never un-boxed.

This is the first DX VF-1 I have had in my hands. The hype is real. It's super nice.

Yeah, that canopy is normal, across all the VF-31 figures.

The VF-1 is pretty amazing. Transform it to battroid, it's the best posing of the transforming figures.

I can live with normal, thanks.

Yeah, I think he's going into Batroid next!:good:

I REALLY can't wait for the DX VF-1S with S&S parts now!:yahoo:

So I got this thing

Mafex_Evil_Gwenpool.thumb.jpg.83a8abdbb73172c22566c876b64c94db.jpg

Unfortunately, this is the Mafex I'm more used to expecting. Basically, lackluster. It almost feels like KO quality. The joints are poorly designed and not very effective, the whole figure feels cheap and easily falls apart when you try to use almost any of the supposed articulation. Positives are the paint application is pretty good and the wired cape is nice. I also like the comic panel accessories but think I will end up using the stands for those for something else. I got this as kinda a test to see if I would want more Mafex figures in the future and if I was basing it just on this, the answer would be no. Luckily for Mafex, I got their Spidey figure before this and that is better in almost every way so I guess I'll keep my existing preorders for the other comic Marvel and Batmans. Venom is on the way so hopefully that will be better too. Good thing is I have a character that is unique and not available from any other line. I'd be pretty pissed if I went for the regular Gwenpool since that would be one case where I think I'd rank the ML version higher than the "high end", cost three times more version.

The 31A has a transparent, yellow-orange tinted canopy. It's the only 31 that doesn't have the glittery canopy.

it's because the the 31A lacks the magical girl power of the other models.

New Purchase 09/13/2019

 

Hasbro just forced Zeta Toys to take down their Unicron over an IP dispute, but they have no problem lifting Bandai's Metal Build designs to incorporate in their Transformers franchise.  Hmmmm.

It looks great, but I attribute this bad ass look entirely to Bandai's genius.

Really? I haven’t been paying attention to the whole thing but after I heard about the Zeta Unicron, I thought it looked better in many ways and had a few better features minus the working mouth in planet mode that Hasbro has. Zeta is also a lot smaller. Looks like HasLab has stalled even with the extension. At this point, I actually hope they just fail.

I just took a look at a couple of these. They look really cool. I like the Prime. They're BIG BUCKS though. How tall are they? How did they cost when they were released?

 

That prime isn't out yet, it's 21cm tall and it's $450 because Flame toys are out of their god damn minds.

Just curious as to how you've linked the two things [Zeta Unicron to haslab Unicron and Bandai's Metal builds to...Flame Toys Star Saber]? For me neither the haslab nor the zeta unicron ever did anything [admittedly they looked very cool] but I can see how when hasbro is trying to literally do their biggest thing ever [size+price] they don't want a 3P undercutting it.

That’s because Flame Toys and Bandai contract the same designers (Decomas Labo, Chemical Attack), same situation with Bandai and Arcadia contract T-Rex to design their Valkyries.

Hasbro has nothing to do with it.

Um yeah, I'm not into it that much.:blink:

At $250 I would be a buyer. But $450! That sucker better be 30cm tall and have a LOT of presence.

In other news, picked up my MP-10G last week.  Can't wait to break these out for a crossover display.

Nice GB collectibles sir! ;) 

Better play with these while you have time, sir. Because once your Kairos arrives, you're going to swoosh it around more than you're going to play with these GB's. Hehehe. :rolleyes:

 

Again, great hauls everyone! :good:
