  1. Hopefully, you serve as a cautionary tale that gets more people not to use NY. I know they didn't used to be this way, but it sounds like they've turned into a dumpster fire over time between the poor customer service and the self-scalping on PO nights.
  2. Chimera Class is one of the "Design the Enterprise F!" contest winners that got repurposed for a smaller, more combat-centric ship class. It's kind of notorious in the game for its big, goofy beerbelly.
  3. If you're genuinely wondering: In Gundam SEED one of the factions distributed machines around the Earth Sphere that disable nuclear reactions, so mobile suits are battery powered. The Astray frames have beam sabers and beam rifles as their main weapons, so the pilot of the Red Frame (who salvaged it, not the intended operator or pilot) wanted a weapon that wouldn't use any of that precious battery life that they could fall back on and only use the more power hungry beam weapons as needed. Also it looks cool, and the Astray mangas pretty much run off of pure Rule of Cool.
  4. Oh, that's the same stand arm that the War Machine mk 4 stand comes with, neat. Double hinged at the bottom, the butt hook for better support, plus the two smaller arms with hinges to fine-tune things. Neat.
  5. The MRD Gundam Frame Vidar is web exclusive, sadly. https://p-bandai.jp/item/item-1000145875/
  6. IG-11 is Star Wars, it's not coming over via Bluefin or P-Bandai US. The Marvel stuff can, the Star Wars stuff can't. And as web exclusives neither one will be up on Amazon Japan except I guess by flippers selling pre-orders on their pre-orders.
  7. Well, there was already that goofy A Princess Bride PG-13 re-release of Deadpool 2 to fill a gap in Fox's release schedule a few Christmas seasons ago. So I guess there's precedent?
  8. Yeah, they're still checking on availability for the Avalanche Exia, which is what I'm waiting on and was going to cancel. They mentioned they got a decent chunk of their last order but not all of it was complete and they're still trying to figure out what else they can get their hands on.
  9. So apparently there's signs that they raided the Metal Club/Muscle Bear/whatever headquarters, but not their warehouse, and some stock is still getting out. As for if that means the company itself is going to survive, who knows but supposedly orders for stock are still being fulfilled to some degree for the moment. The Avalanche Exia MB KO might even have managed to squeak by before the raid.
  10. The english dub is up for it now, for anyone that was waiting until then to watch it.

    It's possible. They also might have accidentally put the wrong wing in if they had multiple opened ones. It's worth contacting them to see if that's the case. Seems like an easy problem to fix if that's the case.
  12. She's a notable part of the later seasons of Rebels as well, which is well worth watching after dealing with its own growing pains like Clone Wars did.
  13. Mine just stays eternally in gerwalk mode. I fear trying to change it at this point due to the black magic involved in making it transform at all.
  14. It's scaled up to be a viable ingame ship, with changes to windows and such to match.
  15. Huh. That's REALLY damn weird. Were they still the same price or was it at least cheaper? Because on HLJ the listings are now noting they're sets of 2, but the price is also 1k, marked down to 800jpy, when IIRC they used to be 1.5k.
  16. The act combination stands are 2 per pack, the act 4/5 stands should still be 3 per pack. If those got reduced it's pretty weird.
  17. I'll vouch for DHL. Not much more expensive than EMS for me for items from HLJ and they get to my doorstep in like two days flat instead of the roughly week long trip for EMS. Notably the last shipment was just at the end of last month and it arrived with no issues either.

    I ended up using one of the stands that the Glaug, Regult, and missile sets come with plus some extra arms from other stand sets to do two VF-2SS units and all 8 bits they come with.
  19. Mafex Robocop is a pretty good figure. Have both the Robocop 1 and 2 versions personally.
  20. Worth noting that in study so far the virus shows signs of mutating very slowly. So it's not likely to spontaneously change and screw us over all over again.
  21. DS9 best Trek crew representing. I'd go so far as to call it the most consistently well written, possibly the only consistently well written, series of the entire franchise.
