They had the original EVA-01 Metal Build so it's likely it will be sold there as well.. but they also couldn't fulfill all the orders for some members here. Amazon also doesn't package collectibles very well.

Yea, Amazon US can be hit or miss when it comes to packaging.  I ordered a chogokin from there once and the box inside had a hole but the shipper box was fine :unknw:

For those with a metal build eva-01, do you think the joints will hold up okay and not be a sloppy mess early on?

Picked up Eva 01 at EE. Damn you guys!

If I hadn't already ordered 02 at Bluefin I would've gotten it at USA Gundam with the discount coupon. Damn I should have waited. <_<

Next time, baby.

Mine is in a fairly dynamic pose since the day I got it and its joints have remained rock solid.

I got the eva-1 on the first release and I haven't had any problems with the joints.

Well I was supposed to get two, but Amazon cancelled one of my 2 original orders from the first round. If I would have gotten both I'm sure I would have opened it already.

Good news for me, DAM the official mexican distributor of Bandai has announced the upcoming release of the Eva 02 here in Mexico 

The price is to be determined but it seems around 250 USD, a bit more that ordering from HLJ but way less that some resalers

I got mine minutes after the order. 

 

Also that blue frame,  I need to get that. I wonder if we will ever see a Penelope Metal Build.

They're on facebook, instagram, twitter, amazon, ebay, have been to comic-con with a booth, and have a toy themed van so it seems like they are at least a serious business.

I see a lot of Metal Build Astraea posted on YAJ around 25k and some lower at Buy now price. Wonder if Astraea is not that popular in Japan as the Type-F appreciated quickly as I remember to around the 30k level after its release.

Type F imo is way more appealing  and looks way more striking, Astraea looks like a down-toned Exia the Exia repair III.  I would really love to get a Type F but man is already getting ridiculous prices   :blink: 

 

And talking about Exia III I found this, : 

This option set I think it looks great
