Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.


Recommended Posts

Went to the post office earlier to pick these up. I had a pretty bad experience with Mandarake last shipment since a Sealed YF-30 was shipped using a smaller box (that is hacked to be bigger)

These two were shipped using a box that has like 50 to 70% clearance.

The 25S Armor parts is Sealed with box damaged but I can never really see the "damage" they are calling.

What more suprising is the Super/Strike Parts. The box really looks brand new.

nice parts buys! im thinking about getting the VF-1 parts.. just gotta find an available set!

last few buys from Mandarake I have noticed that listings are just duplicated with the noted condition carried over.. there may be damage even if very slight but I guess they have a lot of items to list and get lazy..

I had to sell my soul to Mephisto for this, but.....if it means spooning Goddesses of war.....

Nice...so does this mean they are officially not being released by Toynami?.....or did you sneak them off the cargo ship holding them that is indefinitely docked in Shanghai? :rolleyes:

Nice! I don't collect figures but they all look very good!

I really want to get those Yukikaze fighters but will stick to just Macross for now.

Nice, where you get the mospeada bike?

Hey Pedro2k6. I got it from Mandarake. :) But it's missing the decal sheet. :( I already emailed them since it's not posted that it's missing the stickers and I'm just waiting for their reply. Hopefully, there's a refund or something. Hehehe. :D But if they have the decal, hope they can send it to me as well. If not, I'm planning on using a waterslide version once I'm done with the file. :)

I've been down on HT lately... but this Robocop figure is superb.

I love the heft with the diecast, the rubber biceps, the moving forearms, and the articulated hands.

Looks fantastic.

Hope to take some real pics soon.

I remember that shot he took in the movie, the pose is spot on. The open arm in the air nails it.

Nice! I love the little figure's expression! Is this the one that works with the LED kit?

Good for you. I have been camping for these but obviously I missed them.

If it is fine with you, would you pm me how much you paid? Just to have a number to benchmark future purchases.

Yup, but I decided to give the LED a miss and paint the frame green instead

Make sure to post pictures if you do. I dying to know what that would look like. May I advise to use a metallic turquoise color? :D

I also made the enlightening experience to never ever buy anything at the god awful Black Friday sale from HLJ when there is a much nicer Christmas sale right around the corner. ^_^

I was watching the transformation videos and Wow that thing is huge when built! Green LEDs would look cool too.

Not the same model but just a reference.

I would just like to say "Thank you!" to Hasegawa. With every new Macross release they come out with, the prices on the classic resin kits of the same scale plummet to stupidly low levels. Picked this up for ¥27000, and I've gotten pretty much all of the 1/72 VF-1 line for about ¥3000 per kit.

Wow! I didn't even know anything from these, hehehe!

Can someone identify what year the destroid was made? I never saw any manufactured year except there was a 'Japan' marked in its foot.

It was sold during the original SDFM era....so most likely 1983
