  1. I still have a lot of Playmobil toys from my childhood. I adore the medieval knights sets: To this day I prefer Lego over Playmobil but they where still fun toys.
  2. Oh, the armor parts sold out already on AE. I was too occupied with work to notice. Oh well, I will try to get one on release day. It is already a super expensive week. Had to pay for MP Shouki, SV-51 Nora, MB Eva-00 and K3 Rodimus.
  3. It is worth a try. Some companies have excellent after sales support. Even if this is not the case your retailer might have a junker he scalped for other parts. I don’t know how the after sales support for MS is though. I know how you feel. I have two breaks I inflicted on my toys that are super upsetting: one of the canards of my VF-19Advanced and the hip swing bar on my VF-25F Renewal. Just thinking about them makes me angry If anyone has junkers of both toys hit me up!
  4. Leader Skyquake might be a Voyager+ toy: a bit bigger than regular Voyagers (like Prime:Prime) and he comes with a big gatling gun, sword and extra zombie head. Maybe they came up with a neat transformation for a jet that is not a box under a plane and need the larger budget to pull it of. Could also be a pre-tool for a new Seeker mold if it is a G1-fied version of Prime Skyquake.
  5. Isn’t Spider-Man supposed to be black and red? So the blue is a highlight of the black spandex.
  6. As I wrote somewhere else the castle doesn’t come with enough knights with visored helmets and separate chest armor. Including three or more of those knights would have been an absolute draw for me buying the castle since those where my preferred knights as a kid. With just one knight done like this to me it’s a set that is expensive and will take up a lot of space (the castle itself looks very good though). So maybe I’ll buy it if it ever goes on clearance. [edit:] Saw more pictures of the castle and apparently the queen comes with a knight helmet with golden visor and another helmet is in the armory for the knight with the hair piece (which I mistook as the squire at first). That makes the set more interesting to me. Still not enough horses for all the knights. My own Lego castle is the one they released after the yellow one (6080). And four knights on horses is a must to me.
  7. I just noticed that I don’t have a second blue VF-31AX to display the Armor Parts.
  8. Does anyone know the day when the X-0 Full Cloth will be released in June? I have a preorder with Luna Park and I think I need to poke them a bit once the toy gets released in order to have it shipped.
  9. Since all add-on sets up to this point have been web exclusives there is a high possibility that this one will be too. Looks good. Why the orange missile covers though?
  10. That is a lot of silver. Would look nice with some panel lining. Maybe in a dark purple.
  11. Yeah at the end of the show it turns out that Night City is actually inside a virtual world and the protagonists have to fight and destroy god (i.e. the creator of the world) with a giant robot.
  12. Totsugeki!!! 🐬🐬🐬 More images here: https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail?scode=FIGURE-140896&rank=
  13. I started to watch Birdie Wing: Golf Girls’ Story. It starts rather interesting with the mafia setting disputes via a 1 vs 1 golf match with those underground golfers. Losing one of these matches has severe consequences for the golfer… I basically no nothing about golf (i.e. I had to look up what a birdie actually is) but the show is very enjoyable. It also has a great opening song by Hirose Koumi.
  14. I don’t know how to feel about that. Volume 40 of the manga seemed like a good end for the series. You could imagine that Guts and Casca lived happily ever after on that island while Griffith is off doing whatever. But now with volume 41 you opened a whole new can of worms that somehow needs to continue.
  15. I think what also might have helped to change the color of the Super Parts thrusters and engine covers to make it more look like Max. Maybe the dark gray from his VF-1J or the light gray of his VF-22S. The lavender looks too much like the blue.
  16. Yukikaze is up for preorder at amiami with better pictures: https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail?gcode=FIGURE-140841
  17. I have the two announcements Raiden Bots on preorder. Mostly out of morbid curiosity to see what an official TT MP combiner would look like. But I’m thinking daily I shouldn’t waste my money and cancel them. I think the Moon Studio have some advantages over the MP ones since the bot mode looks cleaner, well proportioned and more cohesive. But from the videos they look like a mess to transform and the train modes look very stubby. Those are some areas where the official ones could outshine them.
  18. Got my IronTrans Star Blade. It’s bad, don’t buy it and hope that HasLab Star Saber delivers. Or, if you don’t need it to transform and you have the budget for it, get the Kuro Kara Kuro one. It’s great. How bad you ask? I think it sits firmly on the third spot right after the MP one and the PlanetX Kadmos. Compared to Kadmos at least his joints can support poses and it feels more solid than the MP one. Star Blade shares the non-transformation of the others. Given that Star Blade is a big toy and fairly stylized I wonder why they didn’t come up with a more involved transformation. Since the company has not many releases under their belt it could be inexperience. It is just plagued with a lot of paint imperfections. But, to be fair, it has a lot of paint. Many people, myself included, had the hands fall apart on them but nothing a bit of super glue couldn’t fix. I could write more but I’m strapped for time at the moment.
  19. I wished the different parts of the wings had articulation but I love the additional yellow highlights they added. It really pops compared to the EW version.
