Sweet! Was his white too? They are a rare sight and most I can remember were white. Such a cool car!

His was black on black. Looked wicked.

Is that the new dog alien?  Where did you order from?  I got a notice that they'd be in at BBTS soon but they haven't shipped yet afaik. 

Edit: nevermind, it's in my pile of loot now.  :yahoo:

I'm looking forward to this one even though I already have the previous version, but the head doesn't articulate as well as I'd like.  It looks like this one is a bit better articulated.  Also coming out this month (maybe) are the latest improvements to the Aliens warrior and both the 1/8 (or1/10?) and 1/4 scale Big Chap.  Can't wait to get that big alien, although I wish they'd do some others in 1/4 scale.

This newer version  has more movement in the neck joint to allow upwards look while on all fours.

I still have the original release and will be making a dio with this version upon getting it. I have the Rhino Alien on pre-order from my LCS. 

Waiting for the eventual Flying Queen and Alien King tribute from Neca.

Those arms... frighten me.  Did they just get posed awkwardly in the package? :lol:

Nope.  Just don’t keep them straight down.

Still, that Luke figure is hideous. I still bought that set myself. :lol:

I got some HW SW too but for me it was the Mandalorian Ship and Walker. I should have that speeder bike and shuttle from previous releases.

Kitz Concepts Rick/Hikaru finally arrived. I really like the closed visor option.

Definitely will be in for Roy, Max etc.

I just wish some toy company would finally get around to the main fig event, the armoured Zentradi soldier.

Not new purchases but I know some people here can appreciate these toys I just uncovered from my collection.

The Ferrari in front was one of my favorites and prized pieces. Just checked underneath and no wonder, it’s a ‘79 Tomica. The Green Pullback car to the right of it is the best pullback I’ve ever owned. Still looks and works as good as new after decades of use and abuse. That is German made quality!

And a glance at what else was in the box I opened.

Oh man, seeing this thing: https://www.hlj.com/1-144-scale-mig-31-fire-fox-plastic-kit-hma75586

Makes me wish for a 1/100 - 1/60 diecast version.

BTW, preordered the Sentinel Legioss from AJ. I'm sure it is popular here but not checking the Mospeada thread to find out, lol.

Preordered the Riobot 1/48 Legioss AFC-01H at Amazon JP as well.

I’ve been going through my collection also with my sealed figures.  Many lovely Marvel Universe figures to retake pics of.

Maybe slightly. But, AmazonJP wasn't up by the time I turned in last night. And EVERY SINGLE thing I have gotten from AmazonJP has had a damaged box so far. I'll pay the extra couple bucks and get undamaged shipping (in theory).

I'm also not sure how AmazonJP does shipping on multiples. Do the charge you shipping three times? If it's like AmazonUS, yes. Hobby Search will ship in one box and in theory that will be less expensive....maybe?? Either way, it's only going to be a couple $$ swing. Not the end of the world.:good:

I checked and if I was ordering 3 at Amazon JP then the shipping is 2800 JPY.

Yeah, AJ shipping is 1600 for the first item, add 600 each additional. Can’t beat the price for the speed they ship but as someone recently mentioned, they ship in Kleenex boxes. :lol:

But the shrink wrap and fast shipping help reduce the chances of damage. 

Whatever the case, this is the best looking Legioss figure by a long shot I’ve ever seen. Can’t wait to get a Tread to go with it along with the rest of the variants. 

And nice Spidey + Friends set @sh9000 I look forward to watching that show on D+ with my kids.

I love the old school Empire Strikes Back.  That whole era of Star Wars toys is really when Kenner stepped up their game.

Yep, it's the police spinner. Since most of the scifi Hallmark ornaments this year seem to be prior-year rehashes I already have, this is the only one I'm grabbing this year.

This is the tree from a few years back:

12359991_10205376476476386_3314288052017

 

We got the fakest looking tree we could find for it. You can't tell from the first pict but it is pretty loaded down with ships all over. I actually stopped putting characters on the tree for the most part because I didn't have room.

@Kuma Style kinda warned me off of this guy. It's been known to have problems with the wings. And it's pretty damn fiddly. You can pose it, but you certainly can't play with it. He was right..........................................But I don't care! I absolutely love the sculpt and paint details. LOVE IT! You can kinda see in my crappy pic how much pearl is in the white and the maroon on the shoulders. I really, really like how this guy looks. I'm not going to look too hard at it though. Something will fall off.:p

You can tell how not stable this guy is and how worried I am about the wings getting broken. I almost never use stands.

I only have one more Ex Gokin on my wish list. The Energer 1969 in the Anime colors. I haven't been able to find one.

Haha, I always decorate our tree with some toys too.

Carbonized Sith looks pretty badass! The figure isn’t great but that’s standard. The new blaster it has is really cool.
