Congrats on all your acquisitions! Does the Sentinel Legios feel as good as it looks?

:blink:

 

So, if you’ve read other comments on it, some people aren’t happy with a few things about it. To me, it came out better than expected and it’s hard to compare with it’s looks since it looks so good so based on that I’d say it feels slightly less good than it looks. The only complaint that I’m not even complaining about on mine is it has very tight shoulders but I know that is an easy fix. Transformation and articulation are all really good.

It literally took a slow boat from China to get here, but I finally mustered a “few” more troops for the 501st:

My FromJapan package arrived finally.

20200702_111221.jpg.f24dd4fd9795d4ffc8cc68f00aa7cbf0.jpg

  • Arcadia VF-0D PF
  • Yamato 1/60 VF-1S Hikaru (Weathered, MISB)
  • 3x DX 1/48 missile sets
Spoiler

Took a chance on the Hikaru, as the seller didn't take any pictures with the flap open, but listed it as "new, unopened" for ¥29,000

Luckily it appears to be in pristine shape, no damage to the rainbow canopy, and even the box is almost entirely undamaged. Got a ding on one corner (probably during transit) though.

Also confirmed the inner clamshell is still taped shut, and no visible damage or deterioration anywhere.

Now your waiting for Jungle to send your copy of Roy over if this Suspension of Mailing ends.. 

Isn't correct to say that some packages from overseas are now shipping from certain sellers from what I understand?

Jungle only ships via Japan post, the only option they gave me was via Surface or to wait for EMS. So I'm waiting for EMS, as I'd rather not let that one sit on a cargo ship for weeks in the middle of summer.

Fun fact, this is my first Yamato V2 VF-1. And only my second Yamato VF-1.

Started collecting during the Arcadia releases, so there wasn't much drive to hunt down older and more expensive Yamato stuff.

Smart! I typically will not try to hunt for marked up past releases either. Didn't you grab some Yamato Destroids lately? I was thinking about buying some too but I didn't want to pay the shipping for them.

That was someone else. I do have a single Yamato Tomahawk (Olive, weathered) that I got from Jenius quite a while ago.

I have lots of Yamato stuff, just until now it was a single V1 VF-1A Max that's still in it's sealed box.

Oh my bad. I don't have any 1/60 Destroids yet. Gotta change that someday.

They look great, but the joints are quite loose, especially the waist. I need to add some future so it'll stop slouching.

Figuarts Emperor Palps showed up today, bigger box then I expected too. Beautiful figure, excellent detail throughout, looks good with the guards.

Before the chaos ensues, I just got these grails today both weathered, both new/unused.  Never thought I'd find the SSP weathered with such a limited run.

Very nice, I saw those on YJA but blew my monthly budget already!

Congrats :)

Thanks! Got lucky because it was a good price for the two considering what the Valk alone goes for these days. I was a little strapped after paying for the 0D, but didn’t want to pass.

@borgified -- maaaybe, I want to, so I can make a space bridge out of the bases, but summer funds are super tight around here, and if I do anything I want to pre-order the Magic Square Megs...

I’m so close to ordering the Coneheads. I only want Thrust but the figures are so good that having more and getting extra space bridge parts almost me not care about paying three times more just to get the one figure I want.

The 0D's came out of their boxes a few days ago. I've had the 0S/Reactive Armor for a while in boxes. Man! I'm super happy with it! If I had known it would blow me away this much it would have been un-boxed a long time ago.

Another Marvel Legends Retro Dazzler.

 

Are you going to do something special with that Dazzler?

I've got a guy who is here in Michigan that does custom helmets doing a SDFM Hikaru helmet right now. Not nearly as cost effective as these. But, they look pretty darn good in pics and the paint is WAY better. I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out. And at this point I'm all in on helmets. May as well have him do a SDFM Roy. Spoken like a true addict!:p

I'd love to have a Miria to go with my Max. That would be pretty fun. And I'd really love to have Roy's helmet from Zero. Miria would just be a matter of paint. Roy's Zero helmet is going to be somewhere between a fortune and impossible.

I'm happy with my one Max helmet but look forward to seeing more of all of yours!

you guys with the Masei helmets, they make a blue bubble shaped visor that looks more like the animation. you have to shave the inside edge of the visor a little, but I think it really brings the extra out of it. I copied someone on MW who did it, but it's a nice thing, and posted a long time ago, so I'll repost it
