Just built my first Moducase DF30 that I ordered over a year ago before Covid screwed everything up. I have another two to put together which wasn't that hard. I did not expect my Nu Gundam to fit in this depth-wise but was pleasantly surprised.

I just came across this new story regarding a woman who rescued her husband's action figure collection from a flood.

Yep, but three of them. One for the opened figures, one for the misb ones and one just in case.

First things first guys.... 

How in the world is @Slave IV going to afford 3 ships that size to store is stuff? 

Unless what @crackpot has mentioned is true, then @Slave IVhas billionity and billionity of funds though NY as a spokes person as he gets them at a discounted price (just before a rumoured story of an CEO of a certain company embezzling their own funds to support a illegal gambling habit). :ph34r:

Said CEO probably shipped himself via slowboat and he's on his way to meet @Slave IV with all the DX Roys they had in stock. :p

Disney Toybox Hall of Armor Playset x4.  Only one is shown.  The box is huge and 4 of these come in a case.  These look good with Marvel Legends and other 1/12 scale Iron Man figures.

Never saw those.  They look great.

Great and original to see a Nu posed with the Bazooka.  Rarely ever see that.

This may be the nicest little diecast car in my entire collection.

Too bad it’s not a Porsche or Audi but it’s not a shabby model itself at all.

The F40 is something special though.:good:

That's a nice car, Slave. :good: You happen to know what scale is that? Or what's the length of it? Thanks!

Thanks! It is listed as 1/62 and it's about the same size as a typical HW.

Thanks! It's amazing to see a cool engine detail at 1/62. :good:

Yeah, the Tomica cars are really nice. I have a few from when I was a kid and they were always my top mini car toys because the quality was always so noticeably good even as a kid. I still have them all but never thought about buying them now or even knew they still were doing the same thing until I tried to look up info on the old cars I have. I will say there are some better than others and it might be a more premium line but I haven't figured that all out yet. Looking at the F40 box now, it does say "Premium" on it.

Neca Tokka and Rahzar and the (sadly) highly disappointing revo Cable.

What’s wrong with Cable? I just got mine and haven’t opened it yet but I can’t describe any AY figures as “highly disappointing” so far. They are what I consider the best line in comic style toys ever.

Loose joints all over, ankles, shoulders, elbows.  Nothing will stay put.  Can't hold the smaller rifle (I combined the two guns for the pic) straight.  One of the handles simply falls right out of the smaller grenade-launcher like gun.  The gun handle is so short it doesn't even fit all the way down in the hand properly on the Grenade Launcher side.

That sounds like a KO, lol! Will see how it goes with mine.

I'm sure you're all probably sick of seeing DX Roys here, but I'm super happy to get the toy I've wanted from my very first time I fell down the rabbit hole wondering if there was perhaps the slightest chance that I could perhaps find old Japanese toys of an 80's cartoon I love. Little did I (or my wallet) know, right? :rolleyes:  Even after finding all these NEW toys and this forum, I never believed that someone would actually release an SDFM Roy VF-1S, let alone such an excellent one in such a large scale.  Which is why I bought the DX DYRL Hikaru 1S as a backup to convert it into a Roy, but I kept it pristine to sell it just in case (because I didn't really want a DYRL toy).  See my sale thread if you're interested.

A pleasant surprise this morning.  This guy left ShowZ on Nov 23rd. I didn't expect it this fast. Not that I needed it. I'm slammed and don't have any time to mess with it.

Gurren Lagann shipped a week after this guy. I hopp that means it's a week out. I'm REALLY excited that this one.
