    Joy of the hunt?

    In the early 90s (Vancouver, BC, Canada) I remember there was a comic, hobby & toy collectors newspaper that was published from time, and some of the stores would list in super fine print what they had in stock. A store in a neighbouring city (Victoria) had a die-cast destroid monster. Made my day. We also used to drive over the border to Washington state and just hit every Toy's R Us, K-Mart etc... to find toys. The best trips were when the Exosquad/Robotech stuff was out. So stoked to find Battlepods, Khyron's Battlepod and Invid toys.... Good times * I use the Robotech terms as they were Robotech branded. Don't worry, I use Macross, Regult, etc
  2. They owed me $90 for a Figuarts War Machine that I pre-ordered, It came into stock, and was later sold out… but they never sent me one. The customer support ticket conversation was ridiculous. It went on for almost 2 years, but the whole last year, they ceased responding. The funny thing is that they fulfilled another pre-order I had at about the 1 year mark of that other case, but not a word on the Figuarts figure. I’ll just say I’m glad it was only $90, and I chalk it up to the cost of the lesson: “stick with reputable businesses and don’t worry about saving 5%” I feel bad for all of you who got ripped off more heavily than me

    Hi-Metal R

    I wish they made the GBP-1S, but suuuuuper unlikely as we are still waiting for the 4th row 😞, so I had to customize my GBP-1J
  4. I decided to customize my GBP Armor…. Into a GBP-1S! (Hikaru came home and his uncle Roy stole his suit!)
  5. Box Art sooo bad....
  6. Thanks for the info! The colors on that one work for me. I may have to try my hand at an expensive custom...
  7. I'm guessing this is old news, or perhaps just someone's custom job, but i took this screen cap from the Tamashi Nations .jp site. It was from the 2020 show, but I couldn't find any info on this. Anyone know the story behind this GBP-1S
  8. Thinned out my Macross collection, but still love displaying them!
  9. Same here, keep resisting going to sleep, just in case it opens up. NY had executed a different gameplay tonight.
  10. Cart jacked NinNin
  11. No scotch tonight. Just some good beer. I have a long drive tomorrow.
  12. Waiting for big brother
  13. I was able to change my password on HLJ but it only worked when I hit “Forgot Password” instead of “Reset password link” ...for whatever reason. Hopefully the site works well tomorrow night
  14. It is a Besta shelf, but I have the white painted glass doors, so not the best with doors closed... you can only see some shadows on the glass with the lights on.
  15. I don’t have the most extensive collection, but thought I’d share my random collection of hi-metals, DX frontier valks and DX 1s the little IKEA lights help
  16. Maybe I'll wait 6 then.... JK bedtime
  17. Scared to refresh at HLJ too, 22 minutes of "adding" to cart
  18. 17 min of " adding to cart" at HLJ expecting an error message if I ever get further
  19. my HLJ page is stuck on "Adding to cart"
  20. I love this valk so much I had to do one in stealthy-colors
  21. Perfect example! I love that one, and looking closely, yes, both the antennae are the same color (just one is in the shadow).
  22. the models eyes seem proportionally smaller, and the unicorn antenna is grey on the model instead of dark grey/black on the upcoming DX. Not big differences, but somehow it makes me like the model head way more. weird.
  23. Sorry for what may be an obvious question: Is that the standard head for the VF-31F or is that something that comes with the armor parts? Edit: nevermind. I just realized this was the model kit head. whoops
