    Ok. I'm trying to dissect the photos you posted above.

    Me too. Please, @calubin_175 /anyone/everyone correct me if I'm wrong, but this is my take:

    • The *new* McShow/MoShow Aile Strike model is an oversized version of the metal build. (As shown in Calubin's last photo, included as 2nd pic below.)
    • In Calubin's photos, the new 2021 figure is on left, the original 2016 MoShow figure is on right.
    • Gundamit listing has photos of the original 2016 version.
    • OnMyPrimus listing has new 2021 version - states it includes the extra armor parts. (But also shows a picture with Aile Striker on the back...I wonder if that's included?)
    • F360/no3Ljm : you both are saying you prefer the right one, which is closer in styling to the PG, correct? And that would be MoShow 2016 then?

    I think for the time being, I'm going to assume McShow is different than MoShow and therefore the labels would be: MoShow (2016) and McShow (2021). I definitely prefer what I think is MoShow (2016), but as long as the price is good for McShow (2021), I'll still pick it up. But I am waiting before picking up any weapon sets in the meantime.

    Thanks for providing clarification @calubin_175.

    Strangely enough, MoShow stopped using the name MoShow because they got busted by Bandai and released their Buster 1/72 under the name PoisonToys.

    I would assume they’d not risk using the MoShow name again, unless they’re doing it for brand recognition. 

    Yea, originally it was this Aile Strike figure that is being (re-)released that brought the Bandai hammer down on MoShow.

    Shell companies we all think are MoShow:

    • Poison Toys
    • Vientiane Toys
    • Gigapower (Big & Beefy Dinobots)
    • There's another couple 3rd party Transformers companies that they are supposedly attached to, either same designer or pure rename. (G-Creation?)
    • McShow - opinions are split on this, so reviewers think the one figure released so far doesn't have the same 'feeling' as other MoShows

    Yeah, HARD pass. I would rather pay $3500 for a real one.

    Is this figure a KO or a custom design? I know ShowZ has listed custom/small batch gundams before.

  3. There's a 1/72 category view on ShowZ:

    https://showzstore.com/c/1-72-complete-model_0539

    MoShow has a new non-gundam Takeda figure coming very soon. Motor Nuclear is another high quality producer, but their figures are pretty much variations/increasingly complicated versions of the same base figure. (New accessories, colors, $$$.)

    FYI, gundamit.com is show's new sister site that's going to focus on action figures/gundam vs Transformers being the main focus of ShowZStore.com. You can login to both sites with the same account.

    Just missed out on the 3 zero bloody guts at sideshow. Tried to buy it multiple times only to tell me someone else had it in their cart. After several attempts I waitlisted it.  Do they go by who waitlists first or just an email saying it’s available first come first serve?

    I was out all afternoon and it was gone by the time I saw it posted. Sucks.

    As far as I know, they send out a batch of emails and you have a limited amount of time to make the purchase if a unit would become available. I've received waitlist emails where the item was no longer available to buy 45 minutes later and some that were available for a day or two. 

    But they only had 400 and if anyone did want to cancel their order, they're throwing away money since all the threezero berserks are going for a decent amount on the secondary market.

    I've given up hope of ever getting one.

    Does anyone have a quick review on this dude? I like Gundam stuff.  But I don't like MB stuff. I think they're just way too expensive for how big they are. And I'm not into toys that height anyway. Too short for my display "balance". Your mileage may vary.

    Any hoo, 1/72 Gundam stuff is right up my alley. As long as the quality is good.

    Thanks

    As a quick review: I picked it up as a preorder and was impressed with joints/paint/finish. I didn't put it through a 100-point test, but I give it 5 stars for matching my expectations from what is listed on ShowZ. Supposedly McShow is not connected to MoShow/Vientiane Toys/Poison Toys but I couldn't tell by initial quick glance in comparison to my Hurricane Buster. I think some Youtubers have stated it is not up to MoShow level but I chalk that up to building up MoShow to mythic status.

    Thanks for that link. I was right about them repacking. My freaking Midas took 4 returns before I got one mint. I have paid all my preorders for the avenger line. 
    Time to move onto other sellers and just eat the full price up front. 

    Did they fight you at all on the 4 returns? Did you have to pay shipping?

    The selling of used/opened items as new is unforgivable in my book.

    Well... Can't blame Sideshow as other HK based sellers like Toysbuyingagent also ships stuff to the States as much lower costs. 

    I actually have two pre-orders with ToysWonderland and will see what happens next.

    Edit: So Sideshow claims to have the copyright, exclusivity and ownership to all the 1/6th figures? That's pure farce and baloney and Sideshow pulled the same BS on Toysbuying agent as well.

    What is Sideshow claiming? USA distribution rights? 

    Does anyone have more information/links to what is going on?

    If I remember correctly, Entertainment Earth charges pre-orders upfront when you place the order. Not when the item ships, right?

    I haven't had to prepay for any of my pre-orders but I don't remember if I used a credit or debit card:

    You have a better chance of actually getting an item if you pre-order it now. (First come, first served - some exceptions apply.) You don't even have to PAY now if paying via credit card. We won't charge your credit card until an item is ready to ship.

    Hmmm. I am reading in the thread that Amazon is cancelling orders. Although I have had success with them in the past shipping to the states.

    I had a Bandai Dynaction Evangelion figure and some Threezero figures cancelled from them in the last year. I think those were both smaller batch items. (I've had some figures from major US manufacturers cancelled too, but I'm chalking that up to the times we live in.)

    I would think a general Metal Build release like this would be safe from cancellation if you don't have another option elsewhere. You can always cancel your order later without penalty.

    Amazon's been cancelling collectibles on me this year. Dynaction Evangelion earlier and then a Dorohedoro figure from Threezero this week. And I'm still waiting on a banpresto for one of my son's Xmas presents.  I went with BBTS and suggest y'all do too.

    Finally got my Gurren Lagann in after months... and heartbreak. The ball joint on the neck is snapped clean off. I think it's fixable, but damn.

    Has anyone else received one that was decapitated? How difficult was it to fix. Seems straightforward. If it's simple, doesn't seem worthwhile to return it. Anyone have experience with returns to ShowZ that can chime in?

    Well that sucks. But looks like it could be fixed with some super glue or epoxy? (Is that hole in the neck piece for a pin or air/gap from the mold?)

    I have had to get replacement/missing pieces several times with ShowZ. They're very response, click on the 'After Sales' item in the main menu. But their ability to help you out is completely reliant on the manufacturer. They'll normally post a note on the product page if think anticipate any issues...like if a company is shutting down. Even with the KO (Knock Off)/4th Party items, they've been able to take care of me. Sometimes they can send you something within a couple days, other times it takes several months. That guy has been sold out for awhile now, right? So fingers crossed they can help you out sooner than later. (I'm expecting a re-issue if it hasn't happened already but you may need to wait on that.)

    Chinese New Year holiday is coming up in less than two weeks and pretty much everything shuts down over there. I suggest you fill out that form like...now.

    As posted in the Gundams Figure thread, P-Bandai is now offering Chogokin RX-78F00 for Y22000. With a release date of May 2021.

    https://p-bandai.jp/item/item-1000154059

    Right, this is after I purchased mine from YJA for $300+. Screw you, Bandai! :aggressive:

    Dagnabit! I bought one for about the same from AmazonJP over a week ago and it showed up the next day. (Not sure if they expedited it to deliver with my MP Arcee or if DHL was just in turbo mode.)

    I guess that's an early tax. But unless Premium Bandai USA starts selling it, I won't feel ripped off as resellers/proxies are still going to have to charge some extra fees if I were to source it from P-Bandai JP.

    So it's neither Gundam nor 3rd party at this point, but it still started off as a 3rd party "metal build"-ish figure and was discussed here so...

    ShowZ shipped out my CCS Toys Gurren Lagann today. Can't wait.

    I didn't realize it was so big: IMG_8910.PNG.eafd6121bf4cabc075499629eb862146.PNG
     

    I unfortunately cancelled my (discounted) preorder at ShowZ. There's too much (Mando Hot Toys) coming down the pipe in the next few months and I'm way past being out of room to display things. 

    Maybe I'll pick it up in the 2nd or 3rd release, it looks amazing.

    Oh hell yes. I had written off the Snow White...thank you General, sir!

    Freedom Concept 2 is back in stock as well:
    https://www.bluefinbrands.com/freedom-gundam-concept-2-mobile-suit-gundam-seed-bandai-tamashii-nations-metal-build.html

    Wonder if they saved some for the Gundam Expo event going on the next few days?

    Welp, that got me off the fence. Thanks!:good:

    I got my notification to pay last week from showZ and I couldn't pull the trigger. He looks awesome but I don't know where he'd fit into my collection...and it's a couple hundred bucks that I think I may put towards Sinanju before he disappears. (Supposedly he's tied to Wei Jiang who was raided.) That, and I think a ridiculous amount of my other pre-orders are going to start popping in the next month or two.

    Nope; I'm in the US.

    The whole thing seems kind of strange with everything else indicating that they're not in stock yet. All I can say for certain is that they generated a tracking number associated with that order; it doesn't seem to have even gotten to the carrier yet so it's entirely possible it's some kind of glitch in their system.

    I got a notification in my preorders that it's ready to be paid but no email from them. I don't want to pay in full if it's not going to ship for another couple months and then take a month to arrive so I'm waiting to see what happens.

    On a related note, I noticed this notification 2 days ago and had 2 other notifications show up at the same time. One was for the ToyWorld BB Optimus Prime, I paid that in full and now it is showing up as 'In Stock' but no shipping notice yet. But I think this means Tetra is definitely incoming. (Especially for those of you who paid already.)
