Global's Pipe Holder (6/15)



  1. Maybe it's a prototype box, but it looks like the box is more of a "rigid" sturdy cardboard box (see the ridges?) , as opposed to the flimsy boxes we usually see with the line: Thoughts?

    Which SDF/Macross is that? (in the middle)? That looks sweet!

    I took it one step further. By using the overlay technique, I "forced warped" the image on top of the other (force warping just the stand, since this was the part that I can get close i.e. same shape). It's def gonna be a tad off, but I think the "layered" image on the left should give an even more accurate idea of what the size difference will be.

    Whoever thought about using the stand as a point of reference for scale is a genius.
  5. Very cool of you to bring your collection for fans to see. That's a lot of work. And I'm sure Macross lovers appreciated it. Kudos to you. Very cool...

    I had no idea they were just sitting around lol Well, I guess that explains why it took so long to get the next HMR. I guess it all starts with the price that generates once filtered in from manufacturer to distributor. A crazy business. Does anyone know what the produced runs are for these? Are they considered "limited"?

    Fair enough. 😃 I think I don't mind paying some extra dollars to the one who is 1) reliable 2) packs good and 3) ships fast.

    It makes sense that U.S. sellers/retailers are more expensive. They have to make some kind of a worth-while profit for taking a risk and getting these imports here for us to buy (so we can order with very little risk) 😃 If anyone knows a seller who is in the charity business, point me to them.
  9. Visually, compared to the Arcadias, the HMR looks more organic to the way they're posed (not as stiff). But then again, I may be judging from a "render" (optimum posing to accentuate the that 'anime' feel).
  10. Has anyone ordered from this guy: https://www.ebay.com/itm/225000827770?hash=item3463182b7a:g:LogAAOSws5lijNj9 He has an expected delivery date for June. Hmmm....
  11. lol Even down to the "Robotech Defense Force" logo (hehe). Are Steve and Tommy Yune sleeping on this?
  12. Saw this at Walmart today. I thought it was interesting, given the strict licensing being the toy design. *Sorry if this has been posted. Didn't see it anywhere if it was! And uh, please excuse my ugly thumbnail (literally)
  13. Good, stuff, as always, @jvmacross!
