  1. Tried going to NY page and I got the same Sucuri Website Firewall message too. I've been sending tickets to NY regarding my unfulfilled orders too. I had been a longtime customer of theirs and never had any real problems with them until now. 😞
  2. Ah, I missed the initial pre-order window! The stores must have opened during the weekend when I was busy. And here I was checking everyday too! Anyway, Nin-nin has re-opened pre-orders, although its pay upfront and at the MSRP for those who are interested: https://www.nin-nin-game.com/en/saint-seiya-myth-cloth/55837-saint-seiya-myth-cloth-ex-dragon-shiryu-final-bronze-cloth-ver-bandai-.html
  3. I guess they only announced the release date: https://tamashii.jp/item/13819/
  4. Hmm. Nothing yet in the usual online shops. Did this really come out for pre-order today?
  5. Reviving this thread because of the upcoming Myth Cloth EX Final Bronze Cloth Dragon Shiryu. Anyone know when this will be up for pre-order?
  6. Oh wow, the Metal Build Eva-00 and Hi-Nu are beautiful! They're also releasing a Figuarts Kira Yamato with flight chair? Be still my poor wallet...
  7. Well, milking a very expensive mold is logical from a business standpoint. I forgot who in this thread explained the very tedious process of setting up a factory to produce molds for a complicated toy like Metal Builds. And the factory set up is paid for by the manufacturer for only a set period of time. So yeah, Bandai will milk the mold. 😄 Apart from the Crossbones, any U.C. era Metal Build would be most welcome. I'd really like to see what Bandai's Metal Build division will do with transforming Gundams. The Metal Robot Damashii Zeta Ka Ver. is the best iteration of that MS so far. I'd like to see it and the Double Zeta in the MB format.
  8. Pre-order sold out at BBTS. Nin-nin pre-order back up, but with a hefty markup (and still pay-upfront) : https://www.nin-nin-game.com/en/gundam/44449-metal-robot-spirits-side-ms-ka-signature-gundam-bandai-.html
  9. Argh, bit the bullet on Nin-nin. That pay upfront is a bit painful, but they're the only option available now. I hope they don't rat on me. Its my first time ordering from them...
  10. Been waiting for the Ka Signature Zeta! Anyone know if HLJ will be carying this? BTW, here's the page link for Amiami: https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail?gcode=FIGURE-123434
  11. Blue Frame, Aile and Launcher striker packs available for pre-order at NY: https://www.nippon-yasan.com/figures/31000-metal-build-gundam-astray-blue-frame-second-revise-limited-edition.html https://www.nippon-yasan.com/figures/31002-metal-build-launcher-striker-limited-edition.html https://www.nippon-yasan.com/figures/31001-metal-build-aile-striker-limited-edition.html

    Bandai DX VF-31

    Hi all! Hope everyone is doing okay staying home and keeping safe from the COVID-19 contagion. A global recession is in place as global supply chains have been disrupted, and the toy industry is no exception. Given these circumstances, and an uncertain future, anyone think Bandai is still considering completing the Delta lineup? I'm waiting specifically for the super packs for Arad and Chuck's valks. You think these are still in pipeline? Or are we doomed to have a naked Chuck forever? Your thoughts?
  13. There are a lot of comparison videos on Youtube showing the differences between the first release Hot Toys Mk 7 and the newer diecast version. I don't have the first release since I stopped collecting Hot Toys due to financial and space constraints (I only have the Hot Toys Mk 2 and Battle Damaged Mk 3. I am trying to complete the S.H. Figuarts Iron Man line though). Based on the reviews, the difference between the First release and the diecast one are more than just cosmetic improvements. The diecast one can actually partsform into the Mk 7 pod mode, which is a gimmick that is a first among Hot Toys I believe. Also, the poseability has improved tremendously. The diecast can do the famous three point stance/landing no problem. The following is a good review showing the comparison, transformation, and the three point landing, though its in Chinese:
  14. Just got my Hot Toys Diecast Iron Man Mk 7! I had been waiting for this since I pre-ordered it from Sideshow Collectibles in July 2018. This is my first Diecast Hot Toys. I've heard so many good things about the diecast series, but had held off buying the other diecast Iron Man releases until this bad boy came out. The Mk 7 is my favorite Iron Man suit, and this thing is the best representation of the Mk 7 hands down across all brands and releases. This is definitely worthy to be the centerpiece of my Iron Man collection.
  15. Hey, all four are back at NY! Except there's no pay later option anymore: https://www.nippon-yasan.com/figures/29843-shfiguarts-rescue-armor-avengers-endgame.html https://www.nippon-yasan.com/figures/29845-shfiguarts-captain-america-final-battle-edition-avengers-endgame.html https://www.nippon-yasan.com/figures/29846-shfiguarts-iron-man-mark-85-final-battle-edition-avengers-endgame.html https://www.nippon-yasan.com/figures/29847-shfiguarts-iron-spider-final-battle-edition-avengers-endgame.html
