  1. @sqidd here is a playlist of someone building the model. He is not doing anything too fancy other than applying panel lining. Others have gone on to completely rebuild the electronics, etc. I think he is up to Volume 24 at this point. This will give you a sense of the size of it as well. I'd volunteer to build it for you, but I live in Canada...
  2. Cherry Bomb toys is absolutely amazing. If you have a chance to visit, I highly recommend it. If you watched the video, you may have caught a glimpse of this, but this was my best find in the store.
  3. When I saw your post, I thought "hey, what about the old Legioss kits, they should have a colour guide". So paint mixing looks like a must. Searching through HobbySearch lead me to discover these, which I did not know existed:
  4. I'm a sucker for the MG Barbatos and ordered the add-on kit, mostly for the mobile worker. I wanted it for a diorama I wanted to build titled:
  5. I put in a ticket to upgrade from SAL to EMS (still supported in my country) and NY came back with $14. This was for a single SSP set. The key is to use the correct subject line "Change Shipping Method". My previous ticket was ignored, even after escalating with their Live Chat person.
  6. I've been a customer since they first appeared online, over twenty years ago. I met Scott at a WizardWorld convention back in the early 2000s. Super nice guy, big hobby geek. I have never had an issue with anything from them. The redesigned site is a bit a flaky, but other than Macross pre-orders, it works if you know what you are looking for. They are currently running a promotion where you can win back your shipping costs. Most items on the shop are discounted, again, other than the crazy Macross toys. If you are looking for model kits, they can't be beat. Easy to order, great customer service and super trust worthy (they will not scalp).
  7. Of course they will. Once you find them, you will stop looking...
  8. I think HLJ is having issues due to the recent system work. I get different search results from what was posted above. Probably a session replication problem. They should be able to sort it out so look for it later this morning (it will be good for those who did not stay up).
  9. If the drinking game was everytime someone was cartjacked, I would have polished off a bottle of scotch. I don't think I can afford this game anymore...
  10. cart jacked at amazon
  11. Got one at Nin-Nin-game I'll stick around and help out
  12. nin-nin-game is live

  14. Yup, two people on this forum got one that we know of.
  15. anyone think this thread will hit 500 pages tonight?
  16. dynaction evangelion up: https://www.nippon-yasan.com/figures/31613-dynaction-general-purpose-humanoid-battle-weapon-android-eva-01.html
  17. I, for one, would be sound asleep right now if it was the DYRL version.
  18. this? https://www.nippon-yasan.com/figures/31612-dx-soul-of-chogokin-volt-in-box-choudenji-machine-voltes-v.html
  19. interesting, the discount on Nin-Nin-game is down to 10% from 20%, before it goes on sale.
  20. AmiAmi Page, not available yet: https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?gcode=FIGURE-060557 On your marks!
  21. Not Macross related, but I loved this build. Wonder if anyone did a cutaway of the SDF-1?
  22. I think we need two new entries in the Urban dictionary: A bit more on topic, I am not looking forward to Pre-Order night, but whoever is new to it should definitely follow this thread. There are some store that can be avoided like NY, AmiAmi and HLJ. Updates done to those sites last year make getting a pre-order exactly at 4:00 PM JST pretty much impossible. If you follow this thread, you make see something pop up a bit after pre-orders start. If you do get a lead, please contribute but don't try to flood this thread with useless information, especially during pre-order madness. Our lady @Shizuka the Cat, the songstress of the pre-order night, does a fabulous job on pre-order night summarizing the fun. Hopefully she will again, but we know she can't always make it.
  23. Thanks to massive incompetence at CBSA, my package was assessed as industrial equipment worth $30,000 and a $500 duty was slapped on it. So I can either return to sender, or send back to CBSA or pay the duty and claim a refund. A CBSA review can take up to 2 months. Great...
  24. Technically, TV Roy never piloted a VF-1S with super parts, so you will need to wait for the VF-1S (Roy Custom) Hikaru special edition, then the TV supers. And it will only come with the DYRL hands. That is typical Bandai.
