  1. +1. As with any consumables, take them with moderation. Anything excessive is detrimental. For me its more of a roller coaster ride. It started when Yamato entered the fray, that ends the Macross draught. First it was 1/60 v1, then 1/72 M+, then peaked when it was 1/48's VF-1 & 1/60 M+. Man did I buy almost anything 1/48's & 1/60 M+. Then graduated from college, sold my entire collection to pay deposit for mortgage & started career. Quit completely for 2.5 years. Got married, then started to wonder : "hmm...I wonder what's going on in MW forum these days?" and BAM, started collecting 1/60 v2 VF-1, Destroids , M Zero, M+ etc (Yamato folded & Arcadia emerged from the ashes). A year ago, I hit my low again. Sold some, kept some, started to think more "rationally"...and now I'm left with only a Yamato's 1/60 v2 Hikaru 30th Anniversary + fast packs & an Arcadia's 1/60 YF-19. And in between, HMR came out, bought some as "sample", liked it initially, but my love was still with v2 VF-1, so HMR's were sold. For now I'm going for a max of 3 x VF-1 v2, one for each mode, which I plan to buy in a really slow pace in the next few years (just so my collection "sinusodial-wave" time-period is longer, lol), and maybe a revision of the YF-21/VF-22, if Arcadia ever revisit it to pair with the 19. I'd love a renewal SV-51 if they released it a few years back. The old version plastic was craptastic, the thighs on mine cracked in so many places, but at this point in time I think Arcadia has missed that window for me as any. And oh, ordered a Calibre Wings 1/72 F-14B Jolly Rogers diecast model because the price & online pictures were irresistable. We'll see how well this one goes. So, anyways, that pretty much summed up my ups & downs in Macross collecting. Never had a passion for other collection as I'm more of a sports guy, though I spent less time since getting married. Overall, tried to quit, but realized I have never really quit anything. So now I'm just taking it slow.
  2. Just wanted to share, flyingmule has an extra 20% for On Sale items, which brings the Calibre Wings F-14B Jolly rogers to $86 before shipping. http://www.flyingmule.com/products/CL-CA721401 Was searching for reviews and saw Calibre Wings video on youtube featuring Noel, which reminds me of an old MW member aka BlackAces, who used to build beautiful plastic models here. Searched the forum and found this thread! :

    Hi-Metal R

    Knockoffs of the same stand are also available on ebay for $2-3 shipped.
  16. $10 off $20 coupon was glitchy (sometimes works, most of times not) becuase it wasnt meant for US region, which is weird as BlackFriday sale mainly happens in the US. Someone mentioned the coupon restrictions on the thread : https://slickdeals.net/f/10897435-ebay-coupon-additional-savings-10-off-20-w-paypal-checkout-ymmv-limited-quantities?src=SiteSearchV2_SearchBarV2Algo1
  17. Chogokin SV-262 : 11,880 Yen http://jungle-scs.co.jp/sale_en/?page_id=121&id=2128791
  18. Just sold my 2nd copy of the Arcadia for $240 (without missiles)...I dont see anyone could sell it for $500, let alone $1000. $300-400 on average on ebay, and sold ones were less than $300. Well maybe in 10 years, and if Arcadia went down under, we'll see it soar to $1000+, probably will be a hard sell too since no new anime people can relate it to.
  19. OK USPS tracking is just weird these days. It doesnt make sense that the status "out for delivery" is unchanged from morning till night for the two packages that Im tracking. I think you'll get them tomorrow. Similarly, chronocidal package was updated as "delivered" at 6AM, the day before actual delivery took place. He contacted USPS & was told the package was delivered so early in the morning to prepare for of the upcoming busy gifting season. Which was balooney. We almost thought the package was stolen, when the next day USPS dropped it off like nothing happened. Luckily the $400 package was insured, so I wasnt too worried. All is well, but seems like USPS tracking system is whacky since last week.
