  1. 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....
  2. Updated with new prices. Will be adding some new items over next couple days.
  3. Wow this is looking soooooo nice. I'm trying to get out of collecting so much but this makes me want to stick around. Maybe I'll sell off my Bird of Prey and Weathered YF-19 to make room for this new beauty.
  4. The Wave stuff looks sooooo nice. I am still kicking myself to this day that I missed the WHAM Patlabor Helldiver.
  5. My wish? Don't make anymore awesome Valks, lol! I'm trying to sell off most of my collection right now and while I can part with all my Bandai stuff I just can't bear to part with most of my Yammies.
  6. Curious to see how these turn out in peoples' collections given the rather unorthodox color scheme.
  7. The game is great fun if you like games like Capcom's D&D Arcade Games, Castle Crashers, Guardian Heroes, Golden Axe, Final Fight, etc. Stunningly beautiful and a basic yet very fun and fluid combat system, good online co-op (though no voice chat which is weird), and a nice ability/level system that carries over into later playthroughs (unlike Guardian Heroes where you level up for almost no reason as you can never max out a character and nothing carries over to the next playthrough). I've enjoyed it. As to the character figures I actually like the Amazon and Elf figures much better....
  8. Hey I remember Dangaio! And I still have the VHS tapes also. Solid old school mech series, maybe someone like Discotek will rerelease it one day.
  9. Saw this yesterday and enjoyed it. It completely is the setup for Riddick 4 and 5 which are already being planned. Very much Pitch Black 2, but won't stun you the way the first one did as it does feel like familiar ground. I did like the fact that unlike the other films you do get to see Riddick broken down and nearly beaten right from the start, and not just for a moment or two, and as the film progresses you can tell very much that it is leading in to what is next for the franchise. Not epic or amazing scifi but I am glad they got to do a third film and I'm excited that they want to move forward with two more movies to close out the character and the Necromonger storylines.
  10. Nice. I wanted one of these soooo bad once I found out about them. But by that point they'd long been sold out and the only one I could find at the time I think was a about a rand. I'll spend that on a firearm but not a model kit. Hoping Arcadia will revisit these one day...
  11. Did something just happen to indicate that Bandai might be doing this? Or is this all just speculation? And if so I doubt Bandai will bother with the original series given their factories can churn out cheap DBZ and One Piece figures at a fraction of the cost...
  12. Just made a deal with ErikElvis who was prompt and courteous.
  13. Updated with the few Yamatos I am parting with. Pics to follow tomorrow or so when I have time.
  14. Updated prices, reduced the YF-29 30th due small tear on box in upper back corner and reduced RVF-25 prices.
  15. Just made a deal with Scream Man who was courteous in negotiating and was prompt with payment. Thanks!
  16. Just made deals with Bobby and skullmilitia. Both sent payment right away, and I hear they're hip dudes also!
  17. Sorry for delay replying to folks, really busy last couple days. All PMs replied to; though everyone seems to want the same darned thing, lol.
  18. For a number of reasons, though mostly because I’m moving on to other things, I am clearing out a huge portion of my collection including all of my Bandai Renewal Valks, some Yamatos, and some other Anime/Game related items. All of the following are for sale and include free shipping in the continental US via UPS Ground with Signature Confirmation and Declared Value Coverage. If you are in Alaska, Hawaii, or outside of the US let me know where you are and I will provide shipping options for you. Item condition is indicated next to each item; virtually everything is brand new and/or never displayed. Due to the massive amount of discussions here on the forums regarding missing parts with Bandai releases some of my Valks have been opened and inspected to check for things like missing wheels, hands, bent/broken antenna, missing nipple guns (VF-171s), etc. These pieces are listed as New/Inspected below and have never been transformed or displayed. All external parts are confirmed to be present and intact. All of their additional parts such as hands, gunpods, antenna, etc are still sealed in their original poly bags. As much as I like these pieces I just don’t have the ability to display them and won’t for the next several years if ever so it just makes sense for someone else to enjoy them rather than them remain sealed in their shipping boxes. Payment via Paypal , you may mark as a gift or add the additional 4% to cover paypal fees; whichever you prefer. I have never sold here on Macrossworld, however payment will be received by my business account whose feedback you can check on both Ebay and Amazon. More items to be added as I have the time and pics to follow as well. I am pricing these based on recent sold prices on ebay and elsewhere, not the crazy “I want $500+” nonsense that we’ve seen over the last year, and I have done my best to ask for fair prices for what are brand new items that I often had to pay well over retail to obtain (thanks Nippon Yasan!). Well...ok, the Low Vis is kind of up there, but I'm not parting with that lovely except to a serious collector. That said, feel free to contact me with any fair offers or if I have missed the mark too much on an asking price. For Sale: Yamato Valks: SV-51 Ivanov New/Sealed $400 (SV-51 is still in it's original shipping container from Twin Moons Anime whom I ordered the piece from. It has never even been removed from it's bubblewrap and you can see the images of this below. Hence the seemingly random cardboard box photo below.) SALE PRICE $350 VF-1A Low Visibility Limited Edition 1/48 New/Sealed $500 SALE PRICE $400 VT-1 Super Ostrich & VE-1 Elint Set V1 New/Sealed $400 SALE PRICE $350 And that's all the Yammies I'm willing to part with at the moment. Sorry but the SDF and VF-4 aren't going anywhere, lol. Pics coming in a day or so when I have time. Bandai Renewal Valks: VF-171 Alto New/Inspected Pefect $230 - 2 units available SALE PRICE $200 VF-171 CF New/Inspected Perfect $180 - 2 units available SALE PRICE $160 RVF-25 Renewal New/Sealed $200 - 2 units available SALE PRICE $175 Other figures: Bandai Super Robot Chogokin Armored Core Set New/Sealed $100 SALE PRICE $85 Tekkaman Blade Figma New/Sealed $50 – 2 units available Space Adventure Cobra Figma Cobra & Lady Set New/Sealed $125 – 2 sets available SALE PRICE $100 Kurumu Kurono 1/7 Black Version Figure by Orchid Seed New/Sealed $150 SALE PRICE $120 Kurumu Kurono 1/7 Red Version Figure by Orchid Seed New/Sealed $100 SALE PRICE $85 Odin Sphere SIF EX Velvet 1/6 Figure by Yamato New/Sealed $120 SALE PRICE $100 Muramasa Kongiku 1/6 Figure by Alter New/Sealed $140 SALE PRICE $125 Muramasa Momohime 1/8 Figure by Alter New/Sealed $120 SALE PRICE $100 All prices include free UPS Ground shipping with Signature Confirmation and Value Coverage for the continental US. Revoltechs and Figmas shipped free but may be shipped via USPS Priority Mail if more cost effective due to their smaller size. Outside of the continental US feel free to contact for shipping quotes. I will be updating over the next week or so with more Valks and other figures/collectibles as I can work through the boxes of my collection. SOLD: VF-25F Renewal New/Sealed $200 (Small ding on back right upper corner-see pic below, otherwise perfect, sealed condition)(SOLD) YF-29 30th Anniversary New/Inspected Perfect $280 (Minor box damage in upper back corner-will update with pics) (SOLD) YF-29 New/Inspected Perfect $350 (SOLD) VF-25F Renewal New/Inspected Perfect $180 (SOLD) VF-25F Super Parts New/Sealed $140 (SOLD) YF-27 Renewal New/Sealed $250 (SOLD) VF-171 Alto New/inspected Missing 1 chest cannon, recommended as a parts Valk or replacement for anyone needing a new, prefect condition Alto that could simply remove the missing chest cannon from another piece to add to this one thus creating a mint condition, untransformed 171 Alto. $120 (SOLD) Revoltech Metal Gear Solid Snake New/Sealed $45 (SOLD)
  19. Put them back in the boxes and pack those inside double wall shipping grade boxes. Do NOT use the shitty standard "moving boxes" from U-haul, Lowes, HomeDepot, Walmart, etc. Go to either a specialty box store or online to Uline and order these: http://www.uline.com/BL_418/275-Lb-Test-Double-Wall-Boxes?keywords=Double%20Wall%20Boxes You'll either pay "a lot" for a box, or rather it will seem like a lot for those not familiar with this stuff, at a specialty store or you can pay less with Uline but the shipping will be pricey. However these kinds of boxes are built like bricks. This is what you want to protect your stuff in a move. Standard moving boxes collapse with minimal handling and if there is anything slighty heavy on top of them; and let's face, it the movers don't give a crap about your silly Japanese toys. My wife and I transported an entire collection of Walt Disney Classic Collection and Disney Armani figures across the country and back in Double Wall 24x24x24 boxes with no breakage problems. Plus all my game/anime collectibles went in double walls again with no problems. Also get packing peanuts to fill in the void space in your boxes, try not to use paper.
