Ha ha ha... 

Are you going with SS after all this BS thats been happing to the Hong Kong 1/6th re-sellers @Kicker773

If Sideshow wants my cash for Black Widow (Black Suit), then good luck in hunting for me up in Vancouver, Canada cause its not going to happen.

Don’t know. My orders are all paid off. But as far as getting new orders I don’t think I’ll be going to them anymore and just pay the extra to get it earlier. 
 

The info you gave me really left a bad taste in my mouth. To even pull the copyright move of TWL pictures that they took themselves to avoid issues is a dick move. 

Ill be ordering from TWL for future purchases. In the end it’s up to the consumer to purchase whatever they want with their own money. I’ve never done the payment plan with TWL but might give it a shot. 

BTW the guy they’re talking about the custom stands, he’s known on the other forum. I didn’t know they went after him too.

Sideshow did some shady stuff a few years back. They seem to have bad business events like this every few years or so. They need to focus on making good figures and statues. A lot of rehashes at last week's At Home Comic Con show.

Hot Toys needs to start finishing some character groups as well. Or coming out with some lesser known but still popular characters. They are making tons of Iron Man. Since the Bubblegum Crisis Priss Figma doesn't seem to be coming out. Hot Toys could try a Priss figure.

Guess who got delivered to Secret Base?? :yahoo:

Pics from Collector's Freak: The Armorer thread. I'll be getting my copy after the first batch has been sent out from Toyswonderland.

Just missed out on the 3 zero bloody guts at sideshow. Tried to buy it multiple times only to tell me someone else had it in their cart. After several attempts I waitlisted it.  Do they go by who waitlists first or just an email saying it’s available first come first serve?

I was out all afternoon and it was gone by the time I saw it posted. Sucks.

As far as I know, they send out a batch of emails and you have a limited amount of time to make the purchase if a unit would become available. I've received waitlist emails where the item was no longer available to buy 45 minutes later and some that were available for a day or two. 

But they only had 400 and if anyone did want to cancel their order, they're throwing away money since all the threezero berserks are going for a decent amount on the secondary market.

I've given up hope of ever getting one.

Hopefully further details will up soon and most likely as SS Excusive for the extra stuff in NA/Euro shores. Toysbuyingagent might have the pricings for both in Hong Kong Dollars.

Another note: Toyswonderland is back and up guys. A new reformat of their website and hopefully that they don't get anymore headaches from SS.

They need to release the Imperial Deathstar/Naval Trooper.

We've been waiting for it since bloody 2016.

Be nice if they could give us some cool 1/6 Imperial vehicles as well.

Should the Dr. Strange Cape slow down Spidey if he's the Zombie slayer (which reduces the coefficient of air resistance) ? :unknw:

Edit: Ha!! Can't spell at all.

Oh no! What am I going to do with my RAH Ver.2.5 now?! :shok:

To be honest, I'm really scared with any leather related fabric for figures. But if I think about it most of my 1/6 figures costumes are made of rubber and leather. Decisions decisions. :unsure:

Give these a swing - https://www.autogeekonline.net/forum/product-reviews/98451-review-303-automotive-protectant.html

Highly recommended on Collector's Freak or poke around other forums for taking care of pleather stuff. Even car detailing forums might help. 

* Use a UV film on window, dehumidifier and temperature controlled room just like preventing white valks from becoming tomato soup *

Edit: Also posted on Collector's Freak forum under the Star Wars action figures thread and it should encompasses all pleather 1/6th figures made -  https://www.collectorfreaks.com/threads/ht-star-wars-figure-deterioration-staining-thread.239553/

However anywhere that has a very high temp, very high humidity factor plus high UV count, your crap out of luck as it the pleather will degrade like wildfire.

Thanks @borgified. I'll look into this. :drinks:

You know I'd get this if they:

  • made Spidey more muscular
  • lost the cape
  • lost all the black edging ( other than around the eyes) and lines (other than the web)
  • made the blue dark navy blue
  • lost the seam lines
  • Made the black spider on the chest smaller and more organic
  • had the webshooters under the costume
