Wait, it's missing the door? How are you going to keep dust out man?

I'd say the previous owners either broke it.. the gap around the door itself is large enough to allow dust in regardless.. obviously not as bad as having the door missing completely. He did say he's not fussed about it anyways. To be honest neither would i be!

Honestly, I got so much stuffs in my room on display that dusting them can be a real chore. I have one display case with door in the house that kept most of the dust out, but majority of my stuffs is left out in the element.

While it is true that dust can still get inside a display case like the detolf, it also help keeping the dust level low inside the case. But if he's okay with it then more power to him. B))

All I read was no door and my mind was going DUST DUST DUST! :lol:

I've had my collection for years now (though its grown a lot in the last 2 years especially) and it's never been stored in anything. Dust doesn't worry me. :)

The previous owner opened the box to set it up, then dropped the glass door before assembly was finished. It all went back in the box after that. Spanner, I scored it for $30!

She's a little big... by Michael Ringot, on Flickr

I notice the YF-30 first before the anime doll. I think i'm in the right place. :D

That doll is kinda creepy. it reminded me of a time when someone said that anime characters would look really freaky/alien if they were real people.

The one and only! Overpriced like hell but its Anubis and I had to have it :wub:

*snip*

My Riobot Anubis is sitting in my private warehouse. He came in one day after I created a shippment. 60 days max storage this is not enough. Maybe I should ask HLJ if they could extend it to 61 or 62 days. ;) I love the 6 month window BBTS offers.

YF-21... Wait for Bandai's YF-19... will it be in 2016?

Nice buy! And I am sure you got it for what....$100 brand new? :p

The arcadia 19 would 'belong' better with the 21 aesthetically, but that is subjective. If Bandai does a 21, I'll be all over their YF-19. I have their VF-19 Advance, and it is amazing, but it fits better with the frontier stuff.

Thanks! I just designed/printed a wall mount for it.

Congrats on your Slave 1 gift! It's nice eh?

By the way, I would caution you on the way it's displayed now. Not because of it falling down, but because the front end might eventually droop and deform due to the weight. I've had mine on the stand for about 2 months now, but I keep the front leading edge propped up on a small stand to help alleviate the weight. So far it's all good. But someone in a Lego forum had his displayed on the stand for 7 months and there's a noticeable droop on his already. Of course, I'm not sure if this will happen to everyone, but it helps to be aware of this potential issue.

Thanks for the warning. Maybe they have it assembled incorrectly. With the technic support structure inside, I don't see it drooping any time soon.

Yup. The guy who mentioned the drooping also says he assembled things correctly. Here's a link to his post as well as a photo of his Slave 1.

He builds a lot of MOCs so I would say he's an experienced builder with a good understanding of Lego.

Maybe a bit off topic but I looked through that whole thread and it's 95% about the UCS TIE Fighter. The only bit about the Slave 1 is a side photo that doesn't really show much of anything I could see as "drooping" and certainly didn't describe the issue very well at all. The comment about the wings was definitely regarding the TIE. Maybe I missed something?
