  1. The first episode implied that bounty hunters needed a place to start for the FOBs to work. That's where the skill part comes in. The first episode cut to the Mandalorian landing on the right planet to trigger the FOB, but it may not have been the first planet he visited. The Mandalorian's goal is to find a planet that is remote enough that it does not get a lot of interstellar traffic. Taking out the raiders and their AT-ST probably made the bounty hunter grapevine, which caused the bounty hunter to visit the system in the first place. Once there, the FOB activated and he was able to find the village. There were references to the fact that they were on the planet for a few weeks before the bounty hunter showed up.
  2. @sqidd Did you get this guy? https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/VariationDetails/80997
  3. I did not check the whole thread so my apologies if this was posted already: DECEMBER, 2019 RIOBOT MAZINGER Z SENTINEL 27,000円(JAPAN SALES TAX EXCLUDED) 160mm For some reason, I thought of @sqidd
  4. I was going to post the exact same thing...
  5. MyKombini just sent a shipping notice.
  6. Mykombini moved to preparing to ship status
  7. Yeah, it is a mental block. Because the Black Series is done by Hasbro, I don't think it is worth the money, even though they are much cheaper. I was going to start collecting the Black Series, then I saw the Slave Leia figure and was nope... I still have not shaken the "cheap, mass produced crap" image for the Black series, even though I know some of them are good.
  8. Knowing Bandai, that will be the release, final battle of episode 1 version release of the Mandalorean, followed by the deluxe, mid-episode 3 version. Seriously, I caved and ordered my first Star Wars S.H.Figuarts Star Wars figure because of the IG-11. I want to recreate the scene of the two of them from the end of Episode 1 where they enter the door.
  9. MyKombini is back up. Order says "Waiting to ship". Both the regular price and the markup are not available.
  10. Great work, but your exterior is a bit boxy... shouldn't it look like this?

  13. yeah, it would be nice if Bluefin would let us order from them... Right now, it is US only.
  14. As others have said, MyKombini has started asking for payment meaning the release of the VF-1S Hikaru will be soon. I thought I'd post links to the stores that may start getting pre-orders cancelled (that also don't scalp): HLJ: https://www.hlj.com/dx-chogokin-the-movie-vf-1s-valkyrie-hikaru-ichijo-use-bans55800 AmiAmi: https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?gcode=FIGURE-049315 HobbySearch: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10616645 Amazon (General Product Listing): https://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/offer-listing/B07SH712YR/ref=dp_olp_new_mbc?ie=UTF8&condition=new Stores that do "scalp" (by this I mean list pre-order above retail after an initial batch): MyKombini: https://mykombini.com/en/november-2019/14762-dx-chogokin-movie-vf-1s-valkyrie-hikaru-ichijyou-custom-macross-do-you-remember-love-bandai-spirits-4573102558008.html - 28,990 Yen Nippon-Yasan: https://www.nippon-yasan.com/figures/28337-super-dimension-fortress-macross-dx-chogokin-movie-vf-1s-valkyrie-ichijou-hikaru-custom.html - 32,250 Yen Hopefully these links will help people who were not able to score a pre-order. Good luck!
  15. Here are some Chrome extensions that blocks images. I am sure there are a ton of them. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/block-image/pehaalcefcjfccdpbckoablngfkfgfgj?hl=en https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/image-blocker/mkhbghdfcdepfhgeklhdhlmdldiiaajp?hl=en Ideally, you would run some analysis to see what on each site is taking the longest to load and then selectively block out the scripts/images/cookies/etc that are taking the most time. There are a number of open source and free tools to achieve this. Of course, you should also test it out first so that you do not break the site... Google Analytics is another contributor to slow load times on sites because that is purely based on Google's response times.
  16. How about a set of arms and legs for the Milia figure that we can swap out via magnets (or fully articulate if we are nuts)?
  17. Shoddy imperial workmanship. That's what happens when you import slave labour from the outer rim planets...
  18. These things are like mushrooms! JUNE 2020 METAL BUILD GUNDAM ASTRAEA + PROTO GN HIGH MEGA LAUNCHER BANDAI TAMASHII WEB SHOP 23,760円 (JAPAN SALES TAX INCLUDED And like part of this thing is already sold out... )
  19. I like the black. Makes it look like a museum. Are you opposed to painting the wall? Maybe some blackboard paint? It will give you a deep flat finish which will cut the reflections you can see off the white wall.
  20. It is the RX-93 Nu Gundam from Char's Counterattack, the theatrical movie released in 1988, which, at the time wrapped up plot lines from Original Gundam (1979), Zeta Gundam (1985) and ZZ Gundam (1986). It was meant to be the "ultimate" Gundam, but with recons, it was eventually superseded by Mobile Suit such as the Unicorn. What you are looking at is the first product in a new line called Metal Structure which is essentially a 1/60 scale "Perfect Grade" model kit made into a fully completed and painted figure. The "toy" went on sale at the end of August and sold out faster than most Valkyries considering this thing costs over 100,000 yen (not a typo).
