Welcome to Macross World where the only opinion you are allowed to have is that everything Yamato/Arcadia makes is perfection...until version 2 comes out, then the reissue, then version 3, then version 3.1 with option parts. And be sure to send a personalized thank you card to Bandai for the fake shortages last year that skyrocketed certain models 3-4 times retail; which has now inverted itself and you can pick up every recent release for less than retail.
Also do NOT express any opinions along the lines of....
-These cheap Chinese toys are exactly that, cheap pieces of Chinese plastic crap.
-Said cheap pieces of exploding Chinese crap are NOT worth retail, and certainly not worth more than that.
-This entire forum is a full of morons who advertised that they were dumb enough to pay $300+ for a cheap piece of plastic in the "What would you be willing to pay Arcadia" thread (or whatever the crap they called it) so now Arcadia is doing exactly what the forum asked for and completely raping the consumer on pricing.
-Macross 7 was made for children, lovers of really crappy music, and pedophiles.
And no matter what you do do not EVER point out that when there is a valk shortage and an HLJ employee directly informs you in writing that they presold lots of 10 don't you dare suggest that we ask them to play fair and let everyone have a fair shake at getting a preorder! Because that makes you a complete a-hole for asking a retailer to treat the consumers with a little respect and not feed the scalpers (meanwhile the entire forum will do exactly what you suggested and it will cause HLJ to change their policies while they berate and curse at you for daring to make the suggestion they are hypocritically following).
Man this forum is amusing. I still love Macross and I stop in here from time to time to see what's new out of curiosity, but I'll be spending my money on real toys like this from now on....
Paid for this bad boy with the sale of only a couple of my old Valks. And this won't disintegrate into crumbly pieces of plastic from simply sitting on the shelf.
Ignore Davidwangychan's posts. He even send people PMs telling them not to have their own opinions; apparently dissenting opinions are tantamount to thought crime around here. And now for XrentonX and anime2KPedochan's generic, inane, and predictable replies to any post I make....oh, never mind, I blocked them so I can't read their vapid nonsense....
