A few recent acquisitions.

Thrustmaster HOTAS for PS4, took a bit to snag one at cost, since most were going for double retail.

Glad to hear the HOTAS market has normalized a little, this past year has been utterly bonkers.. everything has been inflated to almost double retail this year.  Apparently no one was prepared for the surge of demand when MSFS came out. :p

Star Wars Retro Escape From Death Star Game.

Nice! I still have my original Star Wars game that I've been playing with my kids.

Calibre Wings VF-84 F-14A.  

 I do like the mold better than Hobbymaster (I have two of those), especially the open bleed air door ducts, metal touch for the cannon fairing, etc.   The Hobbymaster wings are smoother, though I do like the glove vanes on the Calibre as well as the swappable fully open TF-30 nozzles.

The biggest draw for me was the adjustable weapon configuration  on the wing glove pylons.  The extra weapons, as well (being able to put 4 x sidewinder, etc. Should include 6 Phoenix so probably wouldn't ever use those pylons otherwise, but only  has 4. 

Unfortunately the wing glove pylons are a fiddly mess and the pegs that connect to the plane should be twice as deep. Then the uniformity issue where some pegs are thicker than others.  One of the Phoenix pylons always wants to fall off, too (should have designed these with a couple more pegs to fill the Sparrow fin holes), both two Phoenix and one of the Sidewinders came off of their pegs when I was trying to pull them back off.  Nothing a dot of glue won't fix but if the draw is different weapon configurations, this should be easier to do.

Also,, VF-84 was a TARPS squadron, so this one should have included a TARPS pod as well as 6 Phoenix (the "Doomsday Loadout"), 4 x Sidewinder, 4 x Sparrow.

I really want to get one of their F-14D or F-14B, but just missed the Tomcatters F-14D CAG plane.

OHO  I was waiting for a VF-84 classic!  Thanks for the heads-up!

Well, Mandarake did me right! :yahoo:  Just got my SV-262 and VF-31J, both in great condition.  The SV was still in its plastic film/bags and was entirely mint.  And the VF, which Manda said had a discolored panel, somehow had a dirty thigh panel that cleaned right up (nothing else, just the one panel).

Now your missing the Slavos to fill in the missing gaps on the Draken @Pontus and the prices have gone down on the add on for the SV 262. 

Can't go wrong with Manda. ;)

Actually, I was disappointed to find it missing the sword.  I thought it came with it, but no, it's in the wallet sucking bandai extras.  I'm happy with this tho.  The SV is a beauty even if a pita to transform.

I can’t wait to see your pics of Mechander!

Thanks man. It was scheduled for today but is delayed and FedEx is basically like that facility is backed up, dunno when it'll go out so... I wait. Not like I don't have a backlog lmao.

Speaking of adding to that, another one came. One toy away from being done with 2020.

Two Vintage Dins @sh9000

Can't find jack squat up here in Canada in regards to either the vintage or the 6 inch version. It's either gone or scalped right away. 

Thanks.  I think he was in stock more than once.  Surprisingly they were shipped in boxes and not mailing bags.

Nice! Did you get the Grogu pin with either of them?

Sheryl Gorgeous figure arrived. Staying boxed up because I have no place to put something that large at this time. Also got my Arcadia stand after several months on the high seas. :bad:
