  1. I responded, “Gotta catch ‘em all!” 😂 HA. (Btw, you win the Internet for your avatar.) Oi! @Cacophanus
  2. Btw, which one of you crazy cats are Ollie Barder?! Reveal yourself. 😜
  3. Heck yeah! I think the more of us that fill it out the better.
  4. Link for those with a phone that can't read it: https://jp.surveymonkey.com/r/RNGJ73D (Not sure if it is coded specifically for my instance)
  5. It's happening folks! Do the survey from the QR code!!!!! They ask about what we want in the States.
  6. Wow. I agree with you. Haha. But yeah that’s where my head is on both of those topics too.
  7. I don't think it's an overshare, man. I can relate in many ways, and I'm sure there are a ton of others too. In that sense, it probably resonates well for many. Just not sure if I prefer the ending unresolved like the original (darker) or tied up a bit like Rebuild (lighter). I think I appreciate both and look at them as separate tellings of the same story - almost like a choose your own adventure. If I were to guess, it probably reflects Anno's maturity and growth over the last 25 - 30 years. Most of us have a worldview that evolves (whether we are aware and intentional of it or not).
  8. Yeah I’m a bit unsure how I feel about it. The original ending versus the rebuild ending is quite different albeit both a little surreal.
  9. Ya know we have this same conversation over and over. I love it. We’re such nerds. It would be interesting to actually see production numbers, revenue and profit on this line and then compare it to the profitability of let’s say Gundam. If I were a product manager for the Macross line or even product marketing, I would be interested in trying to pull sales by region from my resellers to project the opportunity size outside of Japan.
  10. You can see from the images that the in-progess shots don’t have the same markings. He must recreate them. 🤷‍♂️
  11. Thank you! And totally. An insta-buy for sure if they did it. I wish Bandai cared to reissue 1/55 again with new valks like they did with DYRL Max 1A Origin.
  12. Haha I have not. But here are two.
  13. I did because I’m a crazy MoFo but he delivered. Sent me pics of shipment etc. And arrived in good shape.
  14. I bought my custom VF1D Chunky from him. Solid work.
  15. That's what happened to me for the 31J with Speaker Pods. I woke up two min before release, panicked, and ordered two of them from my iPad. 🤷‍♂️
  16. I reached out to @BluefinBrands and got this response: Not sure that it can be taken as anything more than the rep wasn't aware of any announcements at the time I inquired yesterday. But worth sharing. Also, re: @Hobby Genki I haven't seen them turn their listing live yet. Neither has Okini Land from what I can tell.
  17. Well that was passive aggressive. Feel free to be more direct. You're obviously allowed to have an opinion just like me. It's simple: You asked a question and I responded. You don't have to like my response, but I'm certainly not the only one who thinks this way. Totally. Astute comment. Nevertheless, one I don't have to like or not comment on, ya know? I choose to give out free loans with no interest at my expense and sell extras at cost but prefer other people's decisions not to inhibit my ability to acquire these POs at my expense because they freely share info to people who do nothing to contribute in return (and that isn't a statement reflective of you or Scyla.... it's not point at anyone specific but the general lurkers and people who only come around for PO night and take). I think much of what you said goes without saying my friend unless it was to clarify your intent as a contributor. The Mods ultimately are charged with maintaining order here - not you and I. But like you said, it's an unwritten rule that I'm speaking about. We're talking about the same thing: People should contribute to community. I'm pointing out that they don't. So while @Scyla may and has contributed for a long time, asking the question on a public forum instead of a private message invites leeches to garner that. We all know that every second counts for these. And while people obviously comment or divulge at their own discretion, I give my blunt opinion at my own discretion to give something to consider before divulging.
  18. On a similar but separate note, why the heck would any of you want to create more competition for yourselves in securing something that is already super difficult to PO?? Use some common sense. Try direct PM'ing someone if you're really curious about a question like where someone got the link somewhere. (And that's not an open invitation to PM me as much as I love ya'll though I'm always happy to resell my extras at cost 90% of the time. That's how I choose to give back.) Unless Shawn or JVMacross (who started this new process) has a different opinion, the rule for PO has been to share a link once PO has been acquired.
  19. Yo. That's the mystery isn't it? Find it like the rest of us. Sorry not sorry. The PO rule here is to share links after you've secured your own and that's what @pafy6285 did like a good steward of the board.
  20. To clarify, it only opened for about a min to domestic orders but never opened for global. And yeah, first time ever that the cart froze on me and got cart jacked. Um shhhhhhh. I know I didn’t post it until I got mines. I got sick of doing the heavy lifting finding listings only to have lurkers pop in and go I got one thanks never to be heard from again. You gotta keep a few tricks your sleeve ya know?
