  1. The armor is massive and the pictures just did not do it justice. Was checking out how it fit the leg pieces together and one side was bigger than my mouse (and heavier). I'm going to go back to staring at it...
  2. Nippon-Yasan gave you merchandise in exchange for money? I only got excuses the last two times i tried to order from them. They are dead to me (1 refund and 1 credit card chargeback, both about 6 months without any word before having to reach out to them) EDIT: Sorry... allot of frustration there... no offense
  3. I guess they had planned a few different version (one transforming, one smaller die cast, and one non transforming all with similar boxes). Seems the non-combining just got scrapped https://lionsandpilotsandbots.com/2018/05/01/playmates-toys-no-pidge-allura-hunk-action-figures/
  4. This matches that toy box and look https://toywiz.com/voltron-legendary-defenders-red-lion-action-figure/
  5. Sorry if someone already posted this... this guy analyzes the Blitzway photos in detail
  6. As it turns out the head was connected to the body by having the head attached to a plastic square. On the body side it fit on the shoulders inside of a slightly larger flat square box and the way that it came out was the head side square snapped and then ripped out from the flat box through the middle. In order to fix it I would have to glue the head square together and then it will not fit back in the shoulders. I would have to cut the sides on the shoulder box and slide it in... and I have no faith that I can do that without causing more damage. It's a bummer but honestly the lack of possibility and amount of display space it uses had been bugging me since I found out about the Bandai GX-71 a few years ago which was why I'm buying the Blitzway Voltron (and I still have the original 1980s die cast Voltron anyway). I didn't come to the decision lightly, but in the end it's not worth it to try and fix it because I don't want to display it anymore, and even so these big lions don't belong in a box.
  7. Up on Amazon.co.jp https://www.amazon.co.jp/-/en/dp/B09BF8DR81/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=voltron&qid=1627673336&sr=8-2
  8. Thanks! That's what I was thinking as well. It appears to have just shattered in one spot but the opposite side I found freakishly matched it without being separated into 25 pieces. That thing is massive and was taking up 2 levels of my detolf. I loved how the Matty Voltron had the figures and the lion cockpits even if they werent very detailed. It's a great voltron but only if you want them just standing in lion form or Voltron, and no posing (or standing unassisted). I've been wanting a posable Voltron for a few years and the Blitzway one is going to be it lol
  9. YES!!! I didn't think this could be repaired but i gathered all the pieces (found one across the room) and I figured out how they go and it fits snug. I'm going to try this weekend. Thank you for the advice! They are also selling the Blitzway Voltron at The USA Gundam Store https://www.usagundamstore.com/products/voltron-defender-of-the-universe-carbotix-series-voltron
  10. Thanks... I was showing it to my daughter and then the leg just came off. I dont know why I didn't support the legs Yeah I just bought a recliner for $800 so Voltron is now at furniture prices
  11. I watched He Man as a kid and it was fun. I watched this show not expecting much but no matter how you slice it, it's not a He Man story at all and they made the main character into a joke. If they had named the miniseries something like People of Eternia or something and then it would have been acceptable but I can't stand a bait and switch. That said the first episode was decent- and then the remaining 4 episodes are a downhill ride in quality of storyline.
  12. Hey @sqidd- where are they selling out? I haven't even found any for sale yet I thought they go on sale July 28th at 5 PM KST. I've been checking all the usual places that sell Macross stuff
  13. Wow- that's the kind of tactics I was hearing about NY a few years back. Crazy that they would adopt the same style as the most hated store among Macross fans.
  14. I had no idea about Nin Nin- thanks for the info! Okini sounds like the better option
  15. Yeah I had seen it at Nin Nin for 307 but that seems like a pretty big markup. I want to see if i can get it from a proxy before I go S&M on my wallet
  16. Can anybody recommend a decent proxy service for the VF-1D? I see plenty of entries in google just not sure if there are any to beware of... like a nippon yasan of proxy services. Thanks in advance
  17. Wait- the GBP is an accessory? I was reading comments and it sounded like an entire non transformable valk. Right? I have a little saved but I'm having this weird panic where it builds up and about every 3 days I say I'm just gonna buy it, and then I come back to the computer and look at it and it just doesn't balance out and I close the page because I think I can do better (like its a girl lol) Thats just kinda evil lol... also I dont think anyone who has seen the set will settle without a pretty good chunk off the price, and I dont wanna pay 100 for the fan racer. If this thing was cheaper I would probably bite the bullet.
  18. So conflicted on the VF-1D... not a fan of the that valk (or orange lol), but being able to recreate the iconic scene with Minmei is pure nostalgia. Also I want the fan racer. Im going to regret this either way. Any news on the GBP release?
  19. You rock! Thank you!
