Recommended Posts

Schwarzenegger made a lot of sci-fi films in the '80s, but I didn't know he played Boba Fett...  :p

BTW, love the Misty May.  :good:

Got mine last night, small but well done.
And yes thankfully it had the book.

Need to get my motivation up to transform it, I have flashbacks from my Yamato hips and hinge breaking.
Hopefully the last Proto-Garland for me. 

Would like a GR-2 though, and of course a Wilde-Sau ~_^

How does the Arcadia scale to your Wilde Sau model?  Post a pic!

For those on the fence about this thing. It's basically $200 off what I paid from HLJ when I pre-ordered. I'm tempted to get another just to keep in bike mode.

Ha, I got a second one for exactly that B))

And with the value of the ¥ dropping like it has lately...yes, this is a really good deal!

Is this the best toy for a Garland?  What is different between the white and the dark Garland that recently released?

The picture shown is off the Fewture Garland, I reviewed it here:

The dark Garland recently released is an Arcadia product. It is different from the ones I previously reviewed in that it is a Proto Garland which has some tweaks but it would be most similar to the Garlaands I reviewed here:

Hi  Everyone

I was wondering if anyone can help me out.  I'm looking for an ARCADIA part 1 garland for a decent price.  Because prices are nuts right now. Any help would be great.

Well, you're not gonna find one at MSRP now...  What would you consider a "decent" price?

I would just wait a year, there's a very good likelihood that Arcadia will reissue it as they clearly have plans on continuing to support the line.

With considerable newly acquired downtime during this "state of caution" I decided to add eyes so the nightmares would finally end...

I see the Proto Garland listed as reissue on HLJ.

https://www.hlj.com/1-24-scale-megazone-23-part-ii-diecast-model-proto-garland-reissue-aca82136-2

I received a proto Garland that I had waiting in the warehouse of HLJ for a while now. Was disappointed to find an amber light missing on the rear and some of the pins not fully flushed so that the left swing arm wouldn't align correctly.

I got an ex-gokin Garland for 24000 yen. I patting myself on the back for scoring a great deal on a new garland. Then the invoice came in. The shipping is over 10000yen EMS. Id this correct? Anyone else who bought the ex gokin? If so how much did you pay for shipping?
