So I ordered a Full set of the Destiny with the wings of light from AmiAmi

Aaaand they put the old Destiny with the set!!!

It was pre-owned but the description didnt say anything about it

 

Just waiting on their reply but  some kind of reimburse would be in order, or am I being too naive with their customer service?

What does the description say in the page of your order?

I know what listing he's talking about and it just showed it as being a full package. They show item and box grades but don't really give particular descriptions outside if anything broken or missing.

I mean it is not the original package they should inform the customer and they do say something about broken and missing unless it is a A grade item

You asked what the description said and I answered with what the description said. And I stated that they state that pieces are broken and/or missing so I don't know what the latter half of this response really means? I'm a bit confused but hopefully you've gotten the information you were looking for.

--------------------------

I feel like an oddball not really being as much into the Astrays as most other people seemingly are. I don't know what it is but I have yet to see a single Metal Build variant that really strikes me. In fact, I'm getting this latest red more for the Aile Strike parts than anything else.

It's okay, maybe it is my english== not your problem I am being clearly asnwered. Thx 

------------------------------

For the red astray it is the third time bandai sell it so I am a little bit tired of their repainting works. Personally I feel the only thing new is the transfer item that allows astray to equip strike gundam's package. However, it is a bit odd for astray to use strike's equipment or strike to use astray's in my point of view

Damnnnnn Kuma! Nice work as always! I wanted the 00 Designer Blue ver, but I just dropped a deposit for the GFFMC Wing SW. Proxies are already limiting their allocated amounts!

They didnt say anything on the item description outside of the box listed as B 

And just got their E-mail acknowledging the problem, they said "we are checking with our logistic department"

Does anyone have recommendation on which proxy sites to use for ordering GFFMC Wing SW? I've never ordered from proxy sites before, I usually use BIJ but was sold out by the time I added to cart.

Google isn't doing me any favors. What am I searching for to get my grubby mitts on one of these? I love the gold!

Please tell me it doesn't have to be assembled.

How do the Metal Robot Spirits stack up quality wise? I'm guessing less then Metal Build. How does it stack up against the Fix Figuration? Specifically the Unicorns (which I'm not too impressed with).

Thanks!

- It's all good. I didn't know what it was either so just relaying what I searched and where I got it... "teach a man to fish" and all that jazz.

- The Metal Robot Spirits are literally robot damashii with metal parts... they're a significantly smaller scale (Even though they're considered non scale many of them stack closer to 1/144 scale so around 5-6" height-wise,) but the quality and sculpts are really good, tbh. many of them I've had to take second glances at in pictures to make sure they weren't metal builds I didn't know about.

Thanks for the rundown. I thought it was a MB by looking at it too and went to the MB list to check it out and couldn't find it.

How about value? Would you consider that a $200 figure? $225?

Thanks as always!

I wouls say less than 200, it is small as kuma said. It would be little bit disappointing compare to MB standards if you spend 200-225USD.  Also ORB-01 does not have lots of equipments, the coating of gold color is very expensive that makes the price not very reasonable. 
However, without considering the price it is a good collection, it is more like the TV series not MB kind of style.C3CB7B01-218F-4CC9-B3FE-912DADA1E372.jpeg.694c909e8805991099365e55627d97e6.jpeg6A0FC578-FDE4-451B-8650-59C80CFD25CB.jpeg.d5d293a48717caa0b1368d4ac8217ab9.jpeg

I like that the Metal Robot Spirit line for Seed Destiny has Infinite Justice and Akatsuki. Maybe Legend will still be released. The metal build lineup has been stuck with rehashes.

On the blue F-91, does the beam shield attach securely to the arm?

I have the white Metal Build F-91 and the beam shield can get knocked off even if you look at it the wrong way.
