I'm also waiting on the Gurren Lagann from showz.  I messaged them the other day and they said they have no idea when it will arrive (shrugs).

When did it ship?

I'm excited about that Shin Mazinger Zero!:yahoo:

I know!!! The figure looks so good and is going to be a great upgrade from the SRC version. And CSS Toys teased a Shin Getter so that is an automatic buy. 

Are there any pictures of the Gurren Lagann next to a Metal Build? Just curious how it scales and what the size is.

It's 9" tall.

It sure seems bigger though:

I meant that I am waiting for their stock to arrive; nothing shipped to me haha

They said they don't know when they will receive their stock.

At least you're in that boat. Mine was from the first batch that shipped in November. Tracking is dead at this point. I'm probably going to have to do a chargeback before PayPal's 6mo expires. which i'm sure will get me banned from ShowZ. Oh well. I can't just let it slide.

I have a backup coming from Hobby Search, in theory this month. Fingers crossed.

If it shipped via surface then you may hear something soon.  Surface typically takes around 3 months for me in the NE USA.  The tracking won't update until USPS has it.

Yeah, mine shipped in late September, and showed up in December.

It's slow-boat shipping.

They ship different things at different speeds. The Gurren Lagann definitely went out surface, but after they shipped mine I also got something else (a much smaller item) shipped air and it showed up in like a week or two.

Same size.:p

EDIT: I just checked tracking. It updated 66min ago. It's in New York. So USPS should have it here in March.:lol:

Lucky you! I’m totally out of space to place something like this at home :unsure:. Could get rid of a part of wifes’ closets but in the long term I won’t be happy with it ;)

The cycle of collecting:

  1. Get too many things to display
  2. Get more display space to display them
  3. Get more things so you can fill your display space
  4. Repeat 1-3 until out of space in house/condo/apartment
  5. Get new house/condo/apartment with more space
  6. GOTO 1

I see, I have to proceed to step 5 ASAP

Spouse and kids tend to slow the cycle down.

. . . Didn’t say it stops it completely, mind you. 

Just slows it significantly. :db:

^^And the old standard:  “Eat ramen for the whole month, while I pay off all the things I bought.”

Ramen... Cheap, extra starchy dehydrated noodles in a package and could clog up your arteries. I prefer Udon or Soba to be honest and it's better tasting.

 But are udon and soba inexpensive enough to help you offset your collectibles payments and debts?

The whole eating ramen thing was a running joke back in the day for how some folks would afford to get all their Macross crack/goodies.

You ate instant noodles!?!?

I just remember eating crow back in those days.

I mean, I like an occasional instant noodle (especially if I get to mix in an egg and sometimes some cabbage).

But back in those days, I was able to save the funds for my “hobbies.”

Who knew date nights with the future wifey and then diapers and formula would cut into the toy budget?! :lol:

But back to that listing, where does “Get itch to make your own customs” fall in the list.  Or does it take about 3 or 4 cycles before that step is added? :pardon:

I like ramen. Mix it with tuna and a little mayo

Always been a Kraft Mac N Cheese guy (with the powdered cheese)

I’m too old to eat that stuff now though. At 49 I have to be real picky about what I eat if I'm going to perform physically like l’m 25-30. Bummer.
