  1. Looks a bit grand and over the top for a Craig's Bond.
  2. This topic has been locked. Did this before with some Star Wars topics. Hollywood is always tweaking your beloved childhood favorites. Some changes make sense and others don't. If any of these Sequels/Reboots are inferior products it is because of a number of questionable decisions. Here (like with other fandoms) we'll always get some critics that will use some "woke based" argument. These products are unsuccessful because they are bad in nearly every category. It is not because they made some changes to make things more inclusive. For those outside of fandoms it creates the appearance that fandoms are dominated by a bunch of intolerant people. When critics here object to such changes it is nearly always included comments about things being "woke." These comments tend to border on the political - something that isn't allowed. When topics like this drift away from the subject itself to a discussions on society that border on intolerance and politics things get locked.
  3. Maybe Ed will be the featured bounty. Paid to hunt a mysterious hacker, find out that it's a kid that learned some terrible secret and they have to protect Ed.

    Worth a try but these weren't officially sold here, came out how many years ago and Bandai not making them anymore.

    This just happened. When to move the arm out towards the side. First touch in that direction and it came right off.
  7. Craig's Bond is similar to Dalton's. Either actor would have fit in their Bond movies. Craig's Bond suffers from lack luster story arch. Casino Royal ended with him a broken man because of a broken heart. Kind of like the first novel. They could have focused on that. Instead we get his mother relationship with Dench and this dumb Blofeld was my adopted brother and he's been behind every evil plot that MI6 have faced since I joined them. I wish they did their own thing instead copying whatever was trending. When are they going to fire Purvis and Wade? They bring in new directors, new actors and new additional writers but Purvis and Wade have been on as writers for many of these films. Some good and some bad. Get rid of them. Really want to see this movie but if I waited this long because of Covid I can wait a some more for the streaming release.
  8. Thought I was done with their figures but the quality increase with little Roy impressed me enough to continue with them. I really like the look of this figure but concerned how a soft good figure would look next to non-soft good figs.
  9. That's what I see as the biggest issue with her claim. If it was only in theaters a large number of the potential audiences would still choose to avoid large crowded places. What's a few more months to wait for the later streaming release when we've already been waiting a year? If they kept delaying it until theaters recovered would anybody still care to see this movie? What really hurt this movie was making at after her story in the Avengers concluded.

  11. Ouch. https://variety.com/2021/film/news/snake-eyes-box-office-flop-gi-joe-toy-movies-1235026986/
  12. Got it! The fan in the Fan Racer actually moves. A couple complaints though. It should have came with 2 Hikaru figs to pilot both aircraft and a seated Minmay. They should have included a DYRL style Minmay holding hand for those who don't care for the cartoon style hands. The VF-1D looks awesome. If Bandai wants to make more non-transforming jets like the Fan Racer I'd buy all of them.
  13. That review matches the others I've read.
  14. Waiting US customs at DHL Ohio hub. Maybe I'll get it tomorrow.
  15. Bingo. Looks like it was stop by Customs in HK and started moving again.
  16. Anybody else's 1D from AE been put on hold by DHL? Read there's a variety of reasons fot a hold and I'll contact DHL if it doesn't move time. Interested if I'm jthe only one.
  17. I thought the same thing. When I did the pre-order AE had me select shipping. DHL was the only usable option at the time so I went with that. Looking at the 4480 price and Japan Post tracking number I assumed it had to be EMS. Just fed the tracking info to DHL and looks like they've got it. ETA by the 26th. Everything I got shipped by DHL from Japan so far arrived in 2 days. Should get it by Friday by my estimate.
  18. Waiting for AE to send me shipping cost.

    Macross figures

    I came today 3 days ahead of schedule. It was just before I went to work so I only had a few minutes to fondle myself. (Why does that sound so filthy?) Had run the arms under hot water to get the biceps to move. KC has been good with customer service but I felt that these figures were too fragile to handle and was going to stop collecting after this one. Only handled it for 5 minutes but the build quality and appearance seems to have improved. Build quality might have to do to increased size. Can't wait to play with myself.

    Estimated delivery for mini-me is Saturday.
  21. It is good that they are creating several times to order them instead one specific time. Allows people a chance to get them. Down side is you can't combine items to save on shipping.
