Hello everyone,

1.) I am thankful for finding a DX Chogokin VF-1J on AmazonJP for under $300 after shipping.... which just arrived today via DHL (Amazon Global Shipping).

2.) I am thankful for @jenius continuing to post toy review videos each and every week.

3.) I am thankful for my dissertation proposal and my proposal defense both being approved last week! YAY! Now onto the dissertation final report and the final defense. With any luck, I will get my PhD in June 2020.   *crossing my fingers and praying to Kawamori-sama* 

4.) I am thankful for all the folks here on MWF that I have bought, sold, or traded with. After having read some posts here about other people;'s transactions going all wrong, I feel particularly fortunate that I have not encountered any problems so far.

5.) I am thankful for the MWF members, admins, and moderators who help make these forums a place I like visiting each day!

I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving and a Blessed Black Friday! May all your pre-orders go well!

Aww that's sweet! I'm thankful for everyone who checks out the site and my videos and the MW community for their feedback that help make it all better and provide such great conversations.

Next week I'll also be thankful for my VF-1S Hikaru, SV-51 (hope ankles are okay), and a VR-41H!

Usual gripes on TFW. To me hes G1 Bee and poses well and looks great. It's how I remember him when I was 6. I dont play with my toys much. Pose them and muck with them every now and then. After that they are behind glass for a while. You should love him. Post your thoughts on him. Happy Turkey day!

Recent arrivals while I was away.

One of my rare non-Macross figure purchases. Nier Automata was an amazing game and 2B continues the tradition of "androids I'd fool around with." :lol:

Don't really need Ronin AND Hawkeye though if you want the swords and bow you have to get both. Thanks Bandai! People love being nickel and dimed!

31S armored parts I got for only 12k. Woohoo!

I think they released a different version of the Avengers in Japan. :o

To be honest I couldn't tell you what went wrong.  Only what's broken.  I have Stig and Rey and didn't have this problem.

I tried to swing the bar around underneath the arm and peg it into the backpack.  The peg didn't line up.  I readjusted the arm, plugged it in, and felt the whole assembly come loose.  Looked back at the front and the bit was broken.  Not sure why the hell that piece is plastic anyway, it doesn't require friction but it does potentially require resistance to sheering when rotating and being plugged in.  I may have a horrible QC model anyway, the fabric in the right shoulder is bunched up and doesn't seem attached under the armor correctly.  Several other pivot points weren't lined up straight and I was afraid they would shear off when I tried to rotate them.

Finally today i got one of my Macross Holy grail. The VF-1S Focker DYRL weathering plus Super parts also weathering. The weathering version of the VF-1 from Yamato is still my favourite despite the DX from Bandai(which is great anyway).I bought them as used but they look perfect to me.  Now down with the waterslide decals.

That’s how the box looked on my lawn, lol! Box inside seems fine but I haven’t bothered checking closely yet.

The box underneath is in much better condition and that’s good since it should be my Blowsuperior.

Hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving and good Black Friday deals. I got a few this year.  My wife surprised me when we got to Best Buy whereupon SHE tried to convince ME to get a PS4pro, so I countered with a "might as well get VR too."  Both were $100 cheaper.  I was hoping to try VR when No Man's Sky supported it.  I had no idea it already did.

I also found a used Rahxephon action figure going for $100 less than usual.  I loved this anime, but didn't wanna spend over $200 on the action figure.  The model from Bandai is only $60, but this is so much better, mostly die cast, with clear plastic bits, an excellent figure.

And the new Steven Universes movie was awesome, love the show, and the DVD was worth the $15 to see some behind the scenes footage (even if CN never releases their shows in proper sets!  GRR!)

Looks more like it got squashed some rather than someone rummaged through it, since the Bumblebee is still in there.
