    I still find it a bit funny that we get upset over a color swap and head change on anything else other than transformers or Macross. Everything else is a money grab!! 

    XD

    Count taken from: https://gundam.fandom.com/wiki/Metal_Build#Regular
    I may have missed some? but did my best to manually count them form the categories...

    Seems like they were all p-bandaid.

    EDIT OMG missed the first two under regular release, don't know how I f'd that up. I was wondering why I was looking at the list and thought to myself 'wth why'd bandai start with transam as the first release? that dont seem right...' LOL. So it looks like 10 variations so far, not including this 'X' version (11 now):

    Regular
    2013 Exia repair 3 
    2013 Exia repair 2


    Exclusive
    2014 trans am exia
    2014 avalanche exia
    2014 avalanche exia (weapon plus pack), included are the option parts which could be purchased separately
    2018 10th anniversary edition exia
    2018 astrea type-f (gn heavy weapon set), not included(?) Avalung option set
    2019 astrea + proto gn high mega launcher
    2020 astrea high maneuver test pack
    2020 exia repair 4

    Don't know how many metal heads we have on here, but one of the great ones passed.  Slipknot was one of the huge reasons I got back into metal and Joey's drumming in particular was a main factor in that.  He'd left the band a while ago, but his influence helped bring about a whole new generation of great metal bands and drummers.  Godspeed, my brotha.  That's one hell of a jam session you're gonna have up (or down) there.

    I heard... they said he passed in his sleep. It's sad and I just don't know what to say other than he was great and will be missed.

    From BBTS - https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/VariationDetails/171942

    Threezero Storm Shadow PX Cameo version. 

    Honestly I like this version more than the previous one.

    That SS looks nice as hell. I'll probably have to save up for him and hope to score one down the road.

    I wonder how many people have cancelled orders and request refunds AND if sideshow refunds the customers who paid off their figures. Sideshow will probably no refund the deposits but what would be bad is them either withholding the refund or just issue credit to keep the customers tied to them 🤷‍♂️

    From what I've read a good number have cancelled and others who cant afford plan to finish completing their existing orders (to not lose their NRDs) and then contemplate their options later.

    There’s one on eBay of sideshow does not replace it. Kinda expensive though .

    Aiyah... thank you very much for looking out! Good news is that the Sideshow rep who assisted me yesterday put a ticket through to their returns/exchange dept and I got a response from them today. Even though it was wayyyy beyond the 30 day coverage window they're going to honor a replacement (2-3wks eta) without the need for me to send the original back. I'm glad that worked out. Worse case scenario was that I would just airbrush over it with my best attempt for a match.

    Nice!

    I’d still try and reach out to sideshow and see if they can just send you another chest piece for the 85

    Yea it was a long shot, but I contacted SS just before for a part exchange and sent over the pic above and highlighted/circled the indicated area. I only inspected it and for any missing parts when I received it and (under the anticipation of the future headsculpt exchange program) I placed it back in the box immediately. It's been sitting there ever since.

    Amiami does have good stuff for grabs in the 1/6th scale, however I haven't pulled the trigger on it yet (plus DHL shipping to Canada is going to be a killer. EMS is still suspended after the switch over to DHL back in March).

    Yea there were a lot more I wanted to get at the time too, but had to resist due to all the anticipated future releases.

    @Kicker773 and anyone else that's planning to chop all ties to SS.

    This post from the link I gave earlier - Do what you got to do.

    Ahh geezz... thanks. I started reading the first two pages of that thread and got caught up in other things. I briefly checked the page from my phone earlier and the page count jumped, lol.

    NICE! Yea I ended up skipping on WarPun, and on the fence about MK47. I got WMMK6 from AmiAmi on a 40%(?) off sale (listed as new, unopened) and used ferry ship at the time. It was double taped on the bottom (opened previously), but upon inspection there was no damage, wear, etc. I couldn't complain for 40% off.

    On the fourth one they tried. Saying that the blemishes were normal part of the figure and that they are consistent on what they’ve received from hot toys. My response was there is nowhere in the description that it was a “weathered” gold color iron man. So if they were not gonna replace it, I wanted a complete refund and was gonna go to toyswonderland or other company. They sent 4th one after I told them the go ahead and to inspect it before sending it out or I would return it. Long and behold I got a mint one

    Thor is out!! So basically gotta pick up rescue then just wait for hulk and iron Patriot 

    Damn I was under quarantine back in Feb when I got my IM MK85 from them with a sratch/blemish on the chest plate. I was going to msg them and go through the hassle but figured I could paint, polish it over myself. The shipper box i got the MK85 in was unopened and I requested a double box. I think it was done at the HT's factory.

    A tweet (assuming we all have twitter) a few hours before posting is not a heads up.

    Yes I agree. It's not. I was made aware because I checked mwf and @Sanity is Optional was kind enough to post a reply with info. I then checked twitter, and emails. PBUS sent or I received the email yesterday appx 7:42pm EST (just shy of an hr notice).

    PBUS has a horrible notification system and the same thing happened with the RG Eva 01 Night Combat (I missed out on that one completely). PBUS really should at least give a day notice not 1+hr.

    So these won’t be available for preorder after 7/25? It’s ok if not like it won’t be available anywhere else on release 2023 lol

    So basically create a panic to have people pre order something that won’t be here for another 2yrs. 

    Yes exactly! Sideshow causing panic and artificial demand for their contract/distribution/license agreement they have with HTs, lol. I guess they're trying to starve the competition lol.

    What are they pulling specifically? 

    Sorry, it's the Exclusive editions (not collectors) they're removing from their site after July 25th. There's a timer countdown when you go to the product and select 'Exclusive'. AFAIK for each of the following:
    Iron Strange (Sword)
    Armored DeadPool (Arm cannon)
    Blackwidow (Taskmaster shield)
    Iron Man Mk1 (Metal helmet)
    Boba Fett Repaint Armor [both versions with and without throne] (Holo Razor Crest & Holo Fett Slave Ship)

    maybe others I missed?

  10. Wow... Sideshow just announced on their livestream that they're pulling the Collector's Edition for the new releases on July 25th for the con. Afterwards only the regular editions will be available.

    And... the viewers are spamming the live chat with the Toyswonderland drama, because the big bossy boss boss mentioned something about 'drama' but didn't directly say what it was, LOL.

    If the site crashed the way it did last night for these kits, I dont even want to know what getting the DBZ figuarts will be like tomorrow :o

    Yea it's going to be reallly bad. But for the DBZ figs and what I saw on their stream last week there's a limit of 2 per piece per transaction. So four characters and one base set, meaning 8 total (2 of each) and 2 bases per transaction. IIRC they said the limit per account was 12 or 24 of one particular figure (ie. 12 gokus) before the account hits a limit. So if one buyer wanted 12 gokus they would need to run 6 separate transactions and pay 10$ shipping 6 times, no combined shipping with previous orders.

    I didn’t know it was going to be up last night or when.  I had no way to prepare.

    Yea bluefinbrand and pbandaius put up a tweet a few hours before listing them on the site.

    Managed to snag one. 😬

    Had to spend a looooong time reloading the pages to snag one, and I had it on cart at 6pm...

    Took 10+ minutes to get charged, and never even got a confirmation email (it does show as paid on my account).

    Yea same, it was real bad. No confirmation page... only thrown an error page. Checked my pp acct and the charge showed up immediately. The order appeared like 5 minutes later on PBUS. At X:19 was when my email order conf came in.

    @no3Ljm -  Here's the original screen shot that @Slave IVwas taking about before it went into crazy town on Amazon jp.

    Ya i figured it was lower (around msrp), but azjp sells out fast and allows resellers to list immediately. 

    a bit of a catch 22 for eager buyers that just keep clicking the add to cart and checkout without looking at the numbers. One could accidently buy an inflated price, lol.

    Yeahh.. as noticed from previous VF-1J Armored set PO, many shops like HLJ, AE now price them equivalent to base price + Japanese domestic tax. The domestic tax should actually be waived for export. In effect, these shops are already scalping during PO..

    Yea... hlj and ae use to offer lower prices... not sure if its because of the tax (but prob is) or just to recoup the costs of their services (people cancelling on them, etc). The scalping/inflated prices I was referring to was azjp's relistings by 3rd parties. 40+k already.

  15. cdj always has the cheapest listing, but one of the highest shipping. Cdj is nice if you remember to use your discount points, lol. Plus waiting for their email listings are too damn slow and their site search is garbage.

    I'm sure the demand is artificial... just scalpers or people who missed out the first time. Hlj does have one of the higher prices.

    order stop at hlj
