    That's what I'm reading, too!  Actually, re-reading, sorta.  I'd stopped reading after the Neverwinter books, but it's more because I got busy with stuff like grad school and having a kid.  I'm kind of aware of some of the stuff that happened after, but with the new trilogy coming out and more free time on my hands I decided to read/re-read the whole bunch (and it's actually 37, now, assuming you're not counting the Cleric Quintet).  I'm on The Last Threshold right now, then I'll be getting into stuff I haven't really read yet.

    After I get through Drizzt, I kind of want to re-read Margret Weiss & Tracy Hickman's Dragonlance novels, as I heard they settled with Wizards and are going to be releasing a new trilogy.  I've got Andy Weir's new(ish) book queued up, too.

    I just re read Dragon Lance Chronicles as well as the Twin series. Very good books. Finished Starlight Enclave and awaiting the next in that Drizzt series. I also decided to read the first 6 Dune books. Great series

    This is the one that's basically just the MG kit with some diecast? Or...?

    Yeah. I scored the first glossy version. It's a metal skelly and snap on parts. Not all but much of it. I think the second release it had an actual molded box with plastic trays. 

    Parts fall off a lot. 

  3. Released 6th CD and started to tour around the US doing music shows. Mostly college campuses and clubs. A few larger venues of about 1k capacity. Epic times and stories galore. Had a second a few years later and realized I would die much happier as an involved father over a musician. 

     

    Joined to serve, and still do. A few tours in a less hospitable locations. Children are almost all grown and about to be an empty nester. 

     

    Time for the next phase and Macross has been one of the only constants through it all..

    I really dig the quality and designs of there mechs...so I'm all in

    If it is MoShow and not the knock off version McShow. I have the original 1/72 Strike with Sword and Blaster additions. Damn solid figure.

     

    I was tempted to sell it in news if the others release, but VERY happy I didn't. After reading the reviews in ShowZ, that manufacturer seems like they were riding off the name of MoShow. Quit deceptively I would say. 

  5. Just my personal experience with Luna Park. I ordered a second GBP VF-1J. One from Luna the other from Okini. Both came to me in really good shape. Both came in cardboard boxes and NOT ship wrapped.

     

    One thing I WOULD HIGHLY recommend for Luna Park is, plastic corner additions. ShowZ sends them out on almost everything I have ordered. I have a collection of them, if I decide to sell stuff down the road. I am not sure what additional cost this would be for them, but that way, even if in a shipping wrap package the corners are far more protected. Ultimately better shipping containers should be used.

    Received the MC Model Snow White Prelude today and have to say that I am quite happy with it.  Aside from the tampo being less clear and a difference in the neck joint making the head sit closer to the body (pretty negligible), it is a very good copy and hard to tell it apart from the original.

    Mine came with some loose (not floppy) joints that I was able to fix with Kiki.  I think, for the price compared to what the Bandai is going for these days, it is quite good.  The comment about it being 80-90% of the original is accurate.  I wish there was an original color version!

    Some photos, sorry most of it is using my phone camera.

    Where did you snag the MC version. Can't afford the original but would probably get this version.

    On the item page at ShowZ, there's a comment posted by 'Alphahorizon'. Not sure if it's the same @Alphahorizon from this board. Mentioning that his order got cancelled and that the company got shut down. If Exia Dark Matter is also made by Metal Club, then it's probably has the same fate as Destiny Freedom.

    Yes indeed. If I recall it was way back it got cancelled. I believe when one of the companies that make the alternative version got shut down. There had been a good amount cancelled that day. Sad indeed.
