  1. Nope not yet. HLJ billed right on release date. Surprised, but not worried in the slightest about the lack of an invoice from AmiAmi. They'll ask for money sooner or later, or if something crazy happens they'll cancel the order and I'll save $300-400 from the toy + shipping. I went overboard and ordered (3) of the stand-alone sets so I'm fine with having just one combo. -b.
  2. At this point I'd be happy if they just finished the "hero" lineups of either DYRL or SDFM. If they do that then delve into the other on-screen variants. -b.
  3. Ordered my Deadpool(s). Glad I didn't wait because the usual suspects sold out pretty quickly (AmiAmi, Hobby Search and HLJ). The typical, but a little less hectic than the average DX Chogokin or Metal Build pre-order experience at all three, but I love that HS waited until 3 AM eastern to even make the listing live, I think that was their way of combatting bots, or at least it worked out as I was able to get an order there. -b.
  4. The price on Luna is reasonable IMHO, 25,800 against retail (in Japan) of 22,000. I did place an order for the CHOGOKIN x GUNDAM FACTORY YOKOHAMA RX-78F00 GUNDAM -Night illuminated version and while in no way discounting the experience of others, I've been very happy with the handful of times I've ordered from Luna Park Toys. Forgot about those pics @no3Ljm! I absolutely love the first release to me it's definitely better than the GFFMC 40th Anniversary RX-78-02 and original versions. It just "feels" better and the articulation is about what I'd expect from GFFMC, which is to say it's not as articulated as a Metal Build but it's far from a statue. It's playable and it poses just fine. And I say all of this having severely over-payed for the original CHOGOKIN x GUNDAM FACTORY YOKOHAMA RX-78F00 GUNDAM at initial release. -b.
  5. Noel! Welcome to the party! That's right, Hikaru colors for the win. -b.
  6. Glad I'm not the only one lol We will however have to back away of this thread cautiously, the 30 is beloved by many. -b.
  7. Don't regret selling mine one bit, never really cared for the design and the toy wasn't executed that well to begin with. -b.
  8. Yeah, the Pitch Meetings are always freaking hilarious. But definitely spoilery "...barely an inconvenience" LMAO -b.
  9. My showing was packed, 12:40 PM on a Friday. While everyone was masked, and I'm fully vaccinated I was annoyed to see no more social distancing. That's my biggest gripe, most of the action/fights were as grounded as they could be for a Marvel movie. The fight scenes weren't gritty per say, but they weren't comic book over the top like the final showdown was. Interesting. I'm not Chinese so I can't relate to the cultural implications of what it's like growing up in a Chinese American household where parents/grandparents have one set of ideas/principles and kids/grandkids have another having grown up in the states. But the movie very much centered around parents and the legacy they leave, and expectations they have for their children. Shang Chi being THE main character with this theme. In any event, I feel she plays the same character in every movie I've seen with her in it, but she didn't distract or ruin the movie nor did she pull me out the scenes she was in. Just kind of this side-kick, maybe something more in future-installments kind of character. -b.
  10. Surprised to see this thread so quiet, went to see Shang-Chi earlier today and thought it was absolutely fantastic. Easily in my top 3-5 MCU films behind Endgame, The Winter Soldier. Even Awkwafina who I find to be generally annoying in everything I've seen her in didn't bother me. Don't get me wrong, she was still very much Awkwafina, but her character was relatively likable and the movie did not suffer at all from her being in it. Hell, I even rooted for her in a few instances. The first two thirds of this movie were just really, really good. The third act was good too but the climax went full Marvel with the CGI - something that felt extraneous when compared to the rest of the movie. A minor critique at best. Great action/fight choreography, strong emotional arcs, GREAT cameos, good humor, solid soundtrack and it left me wanting more. If I can find the time I want to see this in the theatre again. -b.
  11. TAKE MY MONEY! *edit, if they release a Luke from the final episode of Season 2 I will absolutely lose it (in a good way) *2nd Edit - links from Tamashii Mandalorian; https://tamashii.jp/item/13709/ Boba Fett; https://tamashii.jp/item/13708/ -b.
  12. Sweet! I haven't opened my re-issue KB yet (from Hobby Search), I don't have any place to display it. And I've still got one at HLJ that I haven't shipped yet. I get from your feedback that it's a pretty solid release, is there anything in particular you really like, or you're annoyed with? -b.
