  1. I got a 1:18 Tumbler to replace the Jada Toys 1:24 that I have (all my other stuff is 1:18). I'm a bit underwhelmed. @tekering warned me. It's slightly undersized. It's nice though. The Delorean is fantastic though! Love it! Not bad for Hotwheels. I had to put a limit on this 1:18 stuff. And that is at 24 cars. That fills up the cabinet they're in currently. And I need some sort of control over this. Or it will get out of control!

  3. Where were you two weeks ago?!?! I just bought one for more money.
  4. If you do a chargeback through PayPal it's a full refund.
  5. IMO the second release is the one to get just because it's so over the top. I'm personally not interested in having one with my space constraints though. I bought one of those GFFMC Unicorns. Ack, it was junk! On top of that the sculpt just looked.......wrong. I sold it off right away. It would be nice to see a MB. I'm guessing they haven't done one because it would take a different frame??? And maybe the Unicorn just isn't that popular. I'm a Gundam noob to the extreme so again, talking out of my butt. I'd guess that the old school Gundam fans are not that into the Unicorn. And the old school Gundam fans are the ones with the money.
  6. Bottom line. Ninni nin nin should know that people are not going to let their PP protections expire. They have two options: -Get the stuff delivered before the 6mo are up. -Refund their order then send them an invoice for a new order thus re-starting the 6mo clock. I hops a TON of people cancel their orders and leave Ninni nin ni with a ton of stock on their hands. From what I am seeing the GBP combo packs are not flying off the shelves. And going for pretty cheap on places like feeBay, etc.
  7. I just thought of something. I'm half speaking out of my butt here so bear with me. Weren't there 2+ releases of those? There was one release that was "really gold!" and then a later release(s) that are not as gold-y? I was under the impression that the OG "super gold" ones went for pretty big bucks. IMO the newer gold doesn't look nearly as good. It looks more like paint.
  8. I imagine that you can with some. Just not this one.
  9. Got notification that BBTS shipped my ThreeZero Unit 01 and 02 as well as the Robot Spirits 02a today.
  10. I got a PG Unicorn so I don'y have a need for a MB. But if I didn't have the PG I would be all over a MB Unicorn. I'm not a fan of the Phenex either.......except for the electroplated PG and put the shields on the arms opposed to it's back. That's a really striking look. Alas, those kits are a FURTUNE. And I don't like it that much.
  11. Yes, I would have all sorts of dumb stuff like that! And if I was rich enough a real one! "Dude, you bought a helicopter?" "Yep" "What is it?" "It's Airwolf" 'Wait, what?!?!"
  12. I think the real question here is what were you doing in a Hot Topic? Lose a bet?
  13. I'm surprised this isn't more common really. I imagine that these would be a pretty good part to have available 3D printed.
  14. It's kind of disappointing that $100 doesn't buy you an opening engine compartment, doors, etc. It's a great looking car though. I suppose that along with the accurate livery is where the money went (I imagine they have to pay for the livery). I hear you on not needing to collect something else. I'm pretty sure I won't be going down this rabbit hole though. That 1:1 Countach was almost as big as a real one!
  15. The Movies That Made Us has new episodes on NF. One of them is Robocop. I didn't know that ED-209 was based on the Glaug.
  16. Duh! It's a Minichamps so on the higher end of the 1/18 stuff. Not too bad though. I found it on feeBay for $106 shipped. I'm new to the 1/18 stuff. Especially the race car replicas. The livery has a lot to do with the price/value. If it's a famous driver(s) and in a livery that won a race or championship that seems to drive the price up. I don't know if some of these die cast cars are distributed/sold Bandai style where they make one run and then no more. Hence driving the cost up. It seems like it may be that way on some of the cars. I was looking for a 80's Lamborghini Chountach LP400S but the two better ones (AUTOart and Kyosho) go for stupid money. $400-800. Then I ran across a PO on Kyosho re-releasing theirs in red (perfect) for I think it was $150 or so??? The Kyosho looks a wee bit better in the proportions than the AUTOart. But the AUTOart is actually more accurate to the real car. Kicking myself for not buying the 1:1 Countach LP500S I was offered in 2004 for...............................$47,000. No one wanted them back then. Now they go for silly money.
  17. If I flew it.....it would be a $15K pile of scrap!
  18. That's where I'm leaning. Another 1/18 today. Porsche 962
  19. Me too! I have one full blown project car left in me. I'm not sure what I want to do. The current choices are: -77' Bandit Trans Am restomod with a big inch LS with a blower, 6 speed manual, big brakes, big suspension, etc. All the amenaties, etc. I'd probably use a 77' AT nad a recent Camaro (wrecked) as the donor. -67' Ford F-100 made into an extenda cab on a custom tube chassis sporting a 800rwhp GT500 motor and one of the 10 speed auto's out of the new Mustangs. Again, all the amenities. Something that would be nice to drive cross country. -Mad Max Interceptor replica with a 800rwhp GT500 drivetrain in it. And again, all the amenities. If I was smart I'd sell all of the motors, transmissions, blowers, rear ends, etc I have and get a 2020+ GT500 Track Pack and leave it stock. Or a C8 Corvette.....and leave it stock. I'm not smart though.
