  1. Ok thanks. I wasn't looking to buy from that specific seller anyways it just happened to be the first one I saw for comparison. Also I don't want Chinese KOs but I didn't know if sometimes the factories keep running without Lego's knowledge like many of the clothing factories do. Obviously those are unofficial and considered KOs but when they come from the same factory it's the same thing. Don't really want to buy something made in China anyways though. Thanks for the input everyone.
  2. Nice custom build. In the comparison pic in the top right I see what looks like the McFarlane Toys bike. What are the other two?
  3. My little guy has just gotten into Scooby Doo a bit and I have discovered that we missed out on the Scooby-Doo Lego sets a couple years ago since he wasn't into either at that time. I see ebay "reprints" like this are available at a fraction of the price of the originals: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Scooby-Doo-Mystery-Mansion-Building-Block-scoobydoo-shaggy-Velma-Fit-Lego-Figure/183222665636?epid=22023420227&hash=item2aa8ec01a4:g:t0QAAOSwQKla9yW5 Has anyone had experience with these? Are these just extras that the factories continued to run, as often happens with textile product, or crappy bootlegs? I'm willing to pay the premium on the Mystery Machine and a couple other of the sets but the Mansion and Lighthouse are quite overpriced in my opinion.
  4. http://anymoon.com/blog/?p=9838 For $500 getting a 4/10 for durability is unacceptable. I hope they never release their Patlabors as this is shockingly bad quality control. Not to mention the work is probably being done by kids in China paid a nearly inhuman daily wage. Disgusting company.
  5. Oh forgot to say. Absolutely love it. I had the original Yamato release and sold it along with the Super Ostrich years ago to "make space". This was ~2013/2014 and they were both New in Box; suffice to say I've regretted that decision so I am thrilled to have this bird back in the collection. It seems to me that it looks much better than I recall the Yamato version looking. Super hopeful for an Ostrich now!
  6. They're connected, the whole thing still slides right off EDIT: Just checked, the boosters were pegged into the backpack but I didn't realize the backpack wasn't pegging into the Valkyrie itself. Seems like a really big piece to be held on by such little plastic pegs, but I guess that's Japanese toys for ya. Thanks.
  7. Anyone else having problems with the boosters sliding off? I haven't even tried anything other than jet mode and I want to put it on a stand at an upward angle but they're not going to stay in place if I do that. Am I missing something about securing them in place?
  8. Why are you doing this??? I was on an anime/toy sabbatical when these released and completely missed the Wave figures. I have looked off and on the last few years and literally never find them up for sale. I literally would trade a brand new Metal Build Eva-01 for a sealed one of these right now if I could. You are evil...lol...maybe...
  9. Wanting to get my little guy some diecast aircraft and needed some suggestions. He has a few ~2" jets that he loves so I want something a bit larger, say 6-9" with more detail. preferably $20-50 price range. Here are a couple examples I am looking at but literally I don't know anything about these, or other manufacturers, so any advice on which lines/manufacturers make better product would be appreciated: Amercom Blackbird: https://www.diecastairplane.com/store/p/126487-YF-12C-SR-71A-Blackbird-NASA-1971-1-144.html Daron/Postage Stamp Blackbird: https://www.flyingmule.com/products/MP-PS5389-1 Smithsonian Nighthawk: https://www.flyingmule.com/products/AF-A00145
  10. Anyone pick up the Batman Ninja figure? I'm kind of disappointed with it. There's just not much to it; equipment, articulation, poseability. Also the cape is really fragile. My little guy wants to play with it and I usually let him but I don't think this one has much resiliency. Passed on Joker because Batman is really more like what I would expect from a $20 figure, not a $50+ one...
  11. Is this one of you guys? https://www.ebay.com/itm/1-12-SENTINEL-RIOBOT-Mospeada-VR052F-T-Accessories-kit-Robotech-Cyclone/292725088914?hash=item4427c66292:g:WjIAAOSwtVdbmagT Who here has accessories for sale?
  12. Man what a mess. Once again Bandai prove they are the most anti-consumer Japanese company out there. At this point they are as bad as Harmony Gold in my opinion, just with a few less convicted felons in the executive offices.
  13. The Revoltech is quite good, especially compared to the Revoltech Ingrams. Something about this one didn't look so great to me and I've yet to pick it up, What did you dislike about the -Side Labor- version?
  14. Sorry if asked an answered here before but wondering about the new Medicom Mafex figures like this Eva-01 coming out: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10545381 Looks exactly like this one but at half the size: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10191307 Are these just half size RAH reissues? I already have most of the RAH Evas but I would spring for them again in a smaller scale also.
