  1. One available on Mandarake for 32k. Get it before it's gone! https://order.mandarake.co.jp/order/detailPage/item?itemCode=1177567533&ref=list&keyword=マクロス
  2. It's fine if the scale isn't perfect since they're non-scale anyway. Just glad to finally have some Xenogears mecha after 20 years. Grahf's Weltall would be pretty sweet too.
  3. Now that my new house is livable (i,e, there's internet access) I opened up my most recent HLJ package.
  4. The lack of a Skull 011 circle insert in the SSP set is Bandai telegraphing that they have no intention of ever releasing a Hikaru 1A, in keeping with their policy of never completing an entire squadron.
  5. The Bring Arts Weltall isn't the best figure around, but it's alright and Xenogears is one of my favorite PS1 games, so I preordered Id. I don't remember Weltall growing by that much when Id takes over. Awww no glowy wing effect parts for the six wings. Hoping for the rest of the mecha from game, including Weltall Mk II and Xenogears.
  6. Thanks for the advice! The valk collection might take a few trips to move.
  7. Combo set arrived! I'm moving this weekend so won't open it till I'm at my new house. I don't dislike the GBP armor, but I'm not a huge fan of it either. So it can wait.
  8. GBP set from HLJ already out for delivery. That was fast! Naturally, the day after I ship my entire PW, a RG kit that's been backordered for months entered my warehouse.
  9. This was for the 1D. They never responded to my emails except for the first email, where I got a "it should be here next week" stalling email. Over a week passed, I emailed them a couple more times and never got any response. So I just disputed the charge through my CC and got my money back. I have zero tolerance for NY-style stalling tactics. Give me my item, my money back, or a real update on when I will receive it. Those are the only acceptable answers to me.
  10. The YF-30 has its flaws but it's far better than the crap Bandai was pooping out prior to the Frontier renewal line. "Ack! Where's my neck?!" (Photo from CollectionDX)
  11. Just paid for Fedex shipping from Okini Land for the GBP-only set so I'll have that in a few days. Woohoo! Also had a set on order from DeJapan but given that I had to CC dispute and get my money back last month, it'll probably be the same thing again. DeJapan sucks. Don't use them if you actually want to get your stuff.
  12. Just requested shipping from HLJ for my GBP bundle and a few other items from the past two months. 7760 for DHL, and that was the cheapest option aside from surface parcel. EMS would have been nearly 12k.
  13. A Virgin Road 1D sold last night. Did anyone here score this rare beauty? https://order.mandarake.co.jp/order/detailPage/item?itemCode=1175834919&ref=list&keyword=マクロス
  14. My favorite stand after Yeti is the Arcadia variable stand. I'm still kicking myself for not buying more of them when they were available.
  15. I love the look of the YF-30 but yeah I agree with the sentiment that the engineering needs some improvement, which they made for the 31 line. Though I don't really like to transform it because it's prone to scratching in many places (like the 29), it's certainly easier and more fun to transform than something like the Sentinel Legioss, which is just a hodge podge of folding panels. (That's a problem with the original design though, not a knock against Sentinel's toy, which is pretty good.)
  16. A unit available on the secondary market like Mandarake or wherever is a unit that Bandai has already sold. There are none available from regular retailers at MSRP. They're all secondary sales or sellers marking up the few remaining units. Either way the supply is constrained by Bandai.
  17. I have an extra HMR Roy if you need one. PM me if you're interested.
  18. How would the DX VF-1 missile set fit on a VF-25? The toy doesn't have any functional hardpoints.
  19. Very nice! I got one of those too. Did you get the accompanying Minmay?
  20. I think the panel wash looks fine on the YF-19 as it doesn't have a huge number of etched lines and enhances its beefy anime look. Still staring at that massive price tag though...
  21. Yep. Bandai didn't start using all plastic trays till the DX VF-1 line. Slipping a valk back into its plastic tray is so much less hassle than trying to wrap it in its plastic sheet then carefully try to conform it to the tiny styrofoam tray shape.
  22. Dear lord that is an absolutely stunning custom collection you have there!
  23. That's a pretty sweet HMR collection!
  24. It looks pretty good with the super parts.
