  1. Hey Gaijin, Thanks for the news. Where can I get more info in this? I checked the apple site, but there is no mention of this... If this actually happens, it'd make things easier for me. Q.
  2. Hey folks, I am sick and tired of protected m4p files... I can never transfer them to other devices (i.e. to my psp...). Is there some other places where you can buy mp3 (or better quality format) songs online that not not protected? Thanks for the info.
  3. Ha ha. Thanks guys No need for apologies. I know you guys didn't mean any harm.
  4. boy I admit... I am korean and I feel quite embarrassed about it... But if you allow me... I watched this cartoon (at a theatre) when I was really young. This was first created in early 80's (where korea was still very behind socially, economically and politically--I think we were still considered as developing country) During that time, as you can imagine, almost everything was copied from Japan but proudly claimed to be "original" or even as "examplary" master piece of Korea... We even had Robot TeaKawn V (we really like "V" you see...) that looked very close to Mazinger Z... So yeah, while I am quite embarrassed, I kind of look at with the eyes of empathy. And now, I am quite proud of how much korean entertainment has grown (korean dramas, animation, games, etc.) and how some of them are really "original". One way for 3rd countries to catch up to developed country is by imitation. Just like a lot of south east asian countries now copy korea and japan and yet give themselves credit for being "original". I guess part of it is propaganda... If you remember, when Japanese car companies first came to the states, they got horrible reviews (just like hyundae first got into to US market), and they practically copied US models except the quality was poor... but now look at where Toyota and Honda are at... I guess my plea to you is that, objectively, it is absurd and funny, but if you can be graceful enough to remember that this was sort of a necessary step for Korea to grow, I'll be greatful.
  5. HLJ pre-orders for SS figures have already ran out... boy do they go fast... Hey guys is there any other places I can order from? Thanks
  6. Aah... No one wants a box? Oh well, I'll just reduce the number.
  7. Hey guys, HLJ has it up on their website now... I am ordering two boxes. Is anyone interested in buying one box from me (plus the half of shipping)? If you live in SF area or east bay, we both can save on shipping.
  8. I thought the premise of the movie was too weird (or I was too stupid to understand the plot...). So what was the movie all about? From what I got, it seems like the egyptian god (eagle head) created Earth. And he needed to have descendants to continue his life(?). So he borrows a human body to sleep with that blue haired (almost) woman (and no one knows why she has power to procreate/bare gods' children or where this girl is from).. am I right? I have couple of questions: 1. What was significance of the central park (they call it intrusion)? 2. What was the man wraped in black cloth? He just makes non-humans into humans by giving pills?
  9. I watched it, but the quality wasn't good enough for me to figure out what was going on... Can someone explain to me: Who was the guy on the bad? He said "hello Lora"(?) What's special about that? Thanks
  10. Where do you pre-order them? Does the store have a website?
  11. agree with that ... i am pretty pissed off with pope shion campaign ..i've followed the campaign rules (order original PS2 games, send stamp, etc ) it cost me around USD 160+ incl shipping .... only to find out my local hobby store have 1 case of pope shion only for USD 45 .... 374155[/snapback] Thanks guys.
  12. Hey Sumdumgai, Do you know any online stores or deputy shopper you recommend? I really would like to get pandora... Thanks. Question.
  13. I've posted some of mine on sales section for trade, but I could sell them, if you want.
  14. Going back to the original question... My love for aquarion lasted about an hour. I opened it, saw it and sold it... In general, I only keep the toys I really like... SOC Mazinger (gx-01r), Tetsujin28 (did I spell it right?), Maginger girls, Takara MP convoy, etc. Macross (bandai reissues) Even if my feelings go away, if I see them or play with them, suddenly my love(?) for them comes back... I've been also collecting some Saint seiya figures. Not sure how I feel about them though. My feeling is that I would slowly drift away from them soon and only keep 2 or 3 figures... I think regardless of the price I simply have to like the toy...
  15. Hi can I order one too? Thanks.
  16. On the contrary.....the Sagittarius head piece is very useful As you expected,....you can put the Sagittarius cloth on Final Seiya At first it didn't make sense that Bandai would add the piece without a full purpose,...if you tried adding the new head to the old Seiya you would notice that it doesn't fit at all,....so I decided to "force" the shoulder piece together on the Final Seiya,..and tada~~ So with a little love and lots of pressure I'm sure you will be able to do it too,.....so no worries....go for it cuz the Final Seiya with the Sagittarius cloth looks so much more beautiful than the original. He looks much taller and is shaped much better,......I'll be sure to post some pics for you,....still waiting on Cancer (ughh) and Aries (oooh) so i can take a nice group shot of everyone released so far! Cheers Haru No, I think it looks beautify too. I've tried (forced) it. It is just the fact that it needs to be forced that bothers me (plus shoulder issue as well). It feels like the figure has to be ditorted a little to wear the cloth... And for me it's not worth it... unless I have 4 or 5 seiya figues.
  17. did anyone try to put Sagittarius' clothe on the final figure? It doesn't fit right... I think the shoulder area is too tight and I can't rotate the shoulder (or it takes great effort to do so) The new saiya comes with Sagittarius head peice, but it is not all that useful..
  18. I finally got my saiya final bronze... wow, it is so much better than the first one... He looks really nice. I am excited for dragon v3
  19. did anyone get saint seiya final bronze? It seems like that guy hasn't beek talked about much... For those who got him, how's the new body sculpt?
  20. I disagree. I think the characters are pretty good. I wish that they had released the Minmay in the Chinese dress, but it never happened. I only own the Lisa and Rick (those names are easier to type - ha), but they are probably the best "3D" Macross figures available to date. Wouldn't mind if more figures (be they large scale or small scale) were made, though. I haven't really seen a 15th anni valk out of the package, so I can't comment on that. Hey wait, Renato - did you mean the little figures that came with the 15th anni valks? I was referring to the 1/6 scale ARII 15th anni character figures. Aren't the CM's figures the best ???. at least I thought so... unless you don't count them as figures since they are trading kits...
  21. Hey, notice the new saint seiya has a wrist joint(s)... interesting. I am actually excited for this new seiya now...
  22. hey... this figure has a new mold... hmm... I am sure it is an improved version, but it looks little funny... Hey Q Yes it does look like a new mold. When you say it looks funny are you referring to the sculpt of Seiya's face? Cuz I think they molded it to look like the Overture animated Seiya if you notice the larger eyebrow So far I can't wait to get this one. The first Seiya face looks nothing like tha anime nor the manga. The closest looking Seiya face (the old anime) would be the one that comes with Saggitarius however the head is a little too small for the body when compared to Aioria. This new Seiya looks the best overall in my opinion. Just my 2cents though. The only question or doubt that I have with this prototype is the fact that there are no seams or slots to remove the front portion of his hair to place his tiara (notice the head shot pic) hhhhmmmm????? Haru No, I didn't mean his face. His face looks nice. I meant the body sculpt. his new abs and upper thigh...they look funny in that they are just ball shaped joints. That is all. It looks like one of those artistic wooden sculptures for drawing (you know one with no face you pose and draw...). I am not sure if I like it or not, though.
  23. hey... this figure has a new mold... hmm... I am sure it is an improved version, but it looks little funny...
  24. Hi, I have a follow up question. IN gx-01 (well I actually have gx-02b), 1. Knee joints can swivel aroung 360 degree and it is somewhat loose (unlike tetsujin) 2. and hip joints are pretty loose i.e. if I pick up the toy by its torse and hold it parallel to the ground, the leg falls (unlike tetsujin--I love tetsujin!). Is it like that in gx-01r as well?
