    Picked up a couple things off Mandarake. Was too tempting to pass up.

    Shipping cost a lot though.

    I remember when those first came out.  I had wished that I didn't have to pass on them.  I ended up getting the Low Vis instead.  But didn't have the cash for both.  Nice score though.  They'll look awesome when you have them set up.

    With the economy going the way it is and Macros stuff more plentiful I think their crack budgets will diminish. They may need to switch over to huffing glue.:lol:

    :lol: As long as they stay away from the Macross toys :lol:

    I think this is mostly down to the economy. And secondarily the GBP not boing the huge draw that other releases are. Mostly the economy though. Every release since the Focker has not has as much demand/been available longer for less money than the ones that proceeded it.

    The scalpers are taking it in the pants for the past couple years. They're sitting on a ton of inventory that simply just didn't sell like past releases did. I just picked a new MISB Focker with Super Parts out of JP for retail plus shipping. The seller had 10+ of them.

    Hopefully this puts a dent in the scalping market long term.

    Good.  Scalpers can go screw themselves.  Some of those guys are smoking crack with those asking prices.

    It sure does seem like it's been a long time since the last VF-1 release.

    It's because they're going to announce Max's VF-1S for the next WWM release.  :D  At least that's what I like to tell myself.

    Hmmm well I don't really love any of them, but I don't dislike any of them either. They're just varying levels of "decent but not amazing." Except the 30th anniversary livery. That thing is hideous. They have just enough wonky design choices to make drag them down, but not enough to make them bad. Like the tiger stripes or the angled spine stripe that kinda just tapers off.

    None of them really stand out to me like Focker's VF-0/VF-1 or Isamu's YF-19 or Alto/Ozma's VF-25s.

    I respectfully disagree about the 30th Anniv. YF-29.  I think it looks sharp.  The stripes look cool to me.  Honestly of all of them I like Isamu's the least.  Just kinda boring to me.  

  6. Well they did recently re-release the enemy Valks.  Not sure if that was just leftover inventory or if they decided to do another run.  Maybe they'll do the same with the other M-Zero fighters.  I'd definitely get a VF-0D PF.  Even if it was expensive it's still a lot cheaper than the secondary market.

    I'd like - LOVE - a VF-0A grey re-release with a weathered PF option and the leg issues fixed. 

    I like the way you think.  Reissue the OD OF while they're at it too. 😉

    I've seen really good success with requiring that the picture(s) of the item have a piece of paper with the persons screen name and date in the shot. Unless the scammer actually has the item It's impossible to do. It's not 100% secure, but it's a long way to ward it.

    I suggested this in the other posting as well.  I've done it in other collecting groups because of this type of thing.
