  1. ^Good questions! I've even wondered if there's some degree of interaction that causes it with the variety of plastic bags out there (material, quality ...some with holes ...some air sealed), the foam trays (vs. clear blister packs), the plastic windows (sometimes) in presentation tray tops, and the occasional sheet of cardboard tray top itself ...lots of variables to consider for sure. After reading your post I thought I'd to go check in storage and take a peak at my original 80's Bandai H.C.M. Series#20 1:72 Scale VF-1J that's been stored for years and years in its original packaging out of direct UV. The toy itself is wrapped inside a plastic bag, inserted in its original foam tray, with its original cardboard tray insert on top...and oh that bit of anxiety as you're opening it ...eager to see what color "white" once you lift the cardboard off Happy to say, it's still very white ...but then compare it to the infamous v1 VF-25 Alto which is packaged practically the exact same way which looks absolutely horrible! So is the biggest determinant sunlight, or the plastic quality itself, or both? Seems like it's unfortunately somewhat "predetermined" with the different batches and qualities of plastic manufacturers can use, and yellowing may still occur despite all our precautionary efforts to prevent it (but still worth doing them for sure).
  2. Another easy and great transaction with SuperHobo ...thanks again and appreciate the promptness as always!
  3. Not fair additional hint added after I guessed So I get a set too right...I mean I did afterall guess what it was (partly) just kidding I know it wasn't the answer you were looking for ... Congrats kaiotheforsaken!
  4. It looks like a "wrist" swivel joint that goes in the forearm of a valk. The side pegs gives full swivel, the socket on top is for the hand/fist ball joint, and the radius cut notch on the end is for re-locking the lifting forearm panel in place once the swivel is complete?
  5. This has been mentioned in other threads over the years but this is just a reminder that florescent lights are BAD for white and clear plastics. Here's an example with identical blister packs for some Yukikaze Mave Fighters, one stored in a room with 48" long 5000K Daylight LEDs (L) and the other stored in a room with conventional 4ft florescent bulbs (R) and the discoloration in the plastic is very noticeable.
  6. Great ( and very easy) transaction with Rogueload ! Thanks again!
  7. Same here on the film. There's no replacing the voice for sure. Age-wise man I dunno...it's kinda hard watching Stallone and Arnie in any geriatric roles but you know who could probably pull it off is that actor from 1917 (George Mackay) he kinda looks like him (quik photochop)... They'd need a little makeup to mimic Wellar's signature philtrum!
  8. I asked because I've used Zenmarket for years and have never paid a percentage for an item. It's always the same thing: item price, ¥300 per item (regardless of its value which includes them buying the item, asking the seller questions for me, packing consolidation and repacking the items) so $0 consolidation fee, and then ship fee (the ¥300 incl giving you every ship option: EMS, Air, Sal, UPS, FedEx, and DHL so you can choose). The only percentage fee I know of for buying an item is if you buy an intangible good (like downloadable music which I've never done) but it is not on anything else. Perhaps SanityisOpt meant you have to pay a deposit fee of ¥360 for every $100 you load onto your account (?) ...I can see how that could be considered 'paying a percentage' but $3.50 is still cheaper than when Buyee charges you ¥500 for 2 items or ¥1000 for 2+items just to consolidate a package for you. -update- I just saw your post Sanity...thanks
  9. Could you explain or where does it say that? Thx

  14. ^ ah...one of my fav's from the early 80's
  15. 6?! Wow! Any chance a mandatory global-scale shut down might possibly give you some free time? That is...unless you are part of lifesaving infrastructure in which case your workload just went Super Saiyan
  16. Read mid-way down this post here and try that which may help --> http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/topic/45175-consolidated-megazone-23-toymodel-thread-for-2017-2018/page/12/?tab=comments#comment-1500557
