    Thanks guys! :drinks: That's what I figured after watching the movie. I don't think there will be an Armored Set for Arad's. Let alone his 31 Super Parts. I already gave up on Bandai regarding Delta Valks. I just don't understand the way they prioritize Bogue's units. The Elvis Draken I think deserves more to get made than his. Oh well. :unsure: 

    :good: 

    I didnt understand that either. No one asked for Bogue. I was expecting Chucks 31E or Arads before bogue. Not too sure why Bandai did that... then again , bandai doesnt listen to their customer base anyway.

    Thanks! I only posted it even though I wasn't sure if it's already built and painted based on the asking price. In case for those who wants a METEOR unit for their Metal Build Freedom/Strike Freedoms. ;) 

     

    any time something is labeled as a "Garage Kit or Garage Build" its generally a resin DIY type kit. 

     

    On a side note , has Nin Nin been doing the "Insufficient Shipping Charges" thing with anyone else?? They hit me with it on my Hayate 31AX Supers and Exia devise recently. $20 on supers and $13 on exia

    I wonder if we will be getting the METEOR units from Gundam Seed if the Type-E is successfully.

    I think the Red Powered and 150 Gerbera Straight was not super successful from Bandai's standpoint since we never got the diving helmet and other add-on sets for the Red Frame. 

    I'm also super disappointed that we still don't have a Skygrasper as a Metal Build set while Bandai is pumping out obscure flyers I've never heard about for the Strike Gundam. <_<

    I guess with the Metal Structure Sazabi release and Nu Gundam reissue we won't see a Metal Build version any time soon. :(

    I forget who but someone makes a METEOR UNIT , its the same company that makes the Ptolemaois Pod and the other launch deck , the name eludes me right now. Playhouse or Bug house? 

     

    *edit , it was megahouse

    Bandai Spirits also has one , so I doubt MB line will get one soon as much as I would love to see one.

     Shin Getter competitionist's have got to be losing their minds and have broken wallets right now. Holy smokes there have been a lot of Shin Getter releases recently. 

    -SOC

    -CCS red

    -CCS black

    -ThreeZero

    -And now a MB.

    Did I miss anything?

    ThreeZero actually launched two colors. One was white and red (anime) color and the other was silver and red (metallic). They also have a black shin getter in the works for 2023. Similar to the CCS black version , it will have a battle worn scarf as well. It’s on Nin Nin and Show Z currently.

    Thank you, I think I was checking before it went live

  6. I really hope there is an add on later for Dynames to include the shield bits. I feel like their were a prominent part of his arsenall in the second half of 00 Raiser. I believe they were also used in Trailblazer awakened but dont quote me on that since I havent touched that movie since 2014

     

    *** just to clarify , this is going to be a limited run = brown card board protector or is this going to be a base sale item?

    Looks like it's new. A KO of MB Crossbone. Gundamit has it for preorder for US$128.99.

    https://gundamit.com/heixiu-model-mb-crossbone-gundam-x-1_p1698.html

    Def worth it for the for the extra parrot accessory and extra cape parts. Those gold ish button cape pieces were easy to break. In case you want to throw a parrot or cape on the X3 or dual wield pistols this might be a good way to go.

    They're absolutely killing it with the Metal Robot line with all these UC and Wing releases. I just wish they gave the same kind of attention to the MFFC and Metal Build lines instead of releasing the same mold over and over with tiny changes to colors, decals, and an exclusive accessory. It's getting old.

    Agreed, being a collector is starting to lose its fun/enthusiasm. Also coupled with the lower amount of pre order stock and having to stay up late to try and order one before selling out has been a pain in the "donkey" . I dont understand why bandai made so few of the Strike Noirs

    $280 US price tag effectively puts the MSRP at a little over 40000 yen.

    That's more expensive than the Arcadia SV-51 which is only 36800 yen.

    40k for a toy where Bandai absolutely cut corners in its original design and now reissued with their current level of quality control? No thanks.

    The problem is that they know they have a solid fan base and people will buy it no matter what. Look at the horrible QC on the original Frontier line of toys. Bandai just re polished the turd and people are eating it up. They wont change anything until sales begin to drop significantly.

    ^ Fair enough. I own 2x YF-29s and while I love the design, I'm holding off on getting anymore. Same for the VF-31AX, I only have the one (Bogue) and it has QC issues. :( Won't be getting anymore of them either ... except if they release the grey low-viz version (as shown in the anime renders.

    And I am sorry to hear about your issues.

     

    ^ Sorry to hear. I also got the 30th Fokker YF-29 - transformed and left in battroid for about 6 months. When I finally went to "play with it", hips and arms were loose AF. 

    Baaaaannnnnddddaaaaaiiiiii !!!!! (screamed like Kirk did to Khan in ST2) - LOL

    I agree that the YF 29 has QC issues. I shelled out $300 for the 30th Anni  yf29 and supers only to find the same problem with the arms as mentioned above. One of the wings also droops down when extended.

    Is there much improvement over the original Metal Build release?

    Thats a tough one. The first freedom gundam came out in 2012 , back then Bandai set the bar real low. I own an MB freedom and the detail on this one looks better in my opinion since it has more panel lining. However its also an apples to orange comparison as this is their Chogokin line which is more on par with Robot Sprits in terms of detail and points of articulation.

    nIn isn’t a bad place . I use them often . Just be Warner’s there is a small chance they are going to shake you down for $10-15 just ass your item is ready to ship. It just happened to me with the Red Dragon Cavelwetch and V fin head set. 4th time it’s happened in many years with them

    Quick question, with brown boxes do you mean the brown TWE shipping boxes or the way BBTS packs their boxes?

    The Metal Build Hi-Nu wasn’t a TWE exclusive item so it doesn’t come in the brown Bandai Tamashii Nations shipping boxes (same for the Dynames and Eva-00).

    Regarding the way BBTS wraps their packages I always get a sturdy cardboard boy padded with bubble wrap so that the items don’t move around.

    I usually wait till some items are in my PoL so I never get single items from them though (I also don’t care too much about the box as long as the item inside is fine).

    That explains the brown box for the hi Nu & dynames but which Evas came in brown boxes ? I know some of them did because I have some boxes for The purple  Eva and Red one.

     

    in terms of BBTS shipping . They sent a big box with a small box inside. No bubble wrap between those two. Inside the smaller box was the hi Nu floating around loosely in a bubble wrap sleeve. If I every buy anything from them again I’ll make sure to post pics , I already tore down the bigger box

    So more or less, it will be around US$280+ for the Chogokin RX-93ff thru P-Bandai US. Shipping and tax included. In today's (9/14/22) conversion Y26400 is US$184.65. If we're going the proxy route, is the total service and fee and intl shipping gonna cost us around US$100 extra? I have a feeling that we're just going to save atleast US$20 if we did the proxy route.

    The big question tonight is, to order or not to order?

    Just my opinion but I would skip. Its cool looking but the quality of the figure is more on par with Metal Robot Spirits line. This new Chogokin gundam line of theirs doesnt have the quality , points of articulation or detail that would justify that price. Wait til the novelty wheres off and people start reselling them for around $220 like they did with the RX model after the NIght Model dropped

    Luna Park SOP

    It really is. Poor shipping has always been a staple of who they are. Their solution? Offer a monthly charge for proper shipping. Sorry to dude who got his Hi Nu wrecked by LP but there have been quite a few posts about this.

    Can I vent about BBTS for a sec? unfortunately I ordered a Hi Nu from them (alcohol was involved otherwise I dont like ordering from them) and why is that they can never manage to send over the brown transport box like other vendors? I emailed their customer service who basically said " its how we get them " and offered no additional help. The issue I have is that they sent it over in this plastic wrapped film in a bubble sleeve thrown in a box. During the shipping it must have bounced around a lot and the front/back of the back are kind of warped. Just looking at the front of the box you you can see the bulge on the front/back from the plastic trays. Ive had similar issues with my Dyanames and Eva 00 I ordered from them. Has anyone else had issues like this with them?
