After a hiatus of... who knows how long, i ended up buying a 1/60 Arcadia VF1S Strike. My last macross toy was a 1/48th VF1A Hikaru when it first came out back in the day. Then came along Robotech on Netflix and it resparked it all over again hahaha.

LOVE IT

also hate it. i nearly broke the hinge on the backpack flap but caught it in time before it snapped. Bent that hinge/flap spot pretty good, but at least its not broken and in need of superglue.

Also have some FlightPose stands coming, and a Bandai VF1A Mass production type Hi-Metal coming in sometime soon.

I was surprised to find a Marvel Legends Civil War 6" Black Panther in stores. I'll price adjust it for 10% off on Thursday and open this one since I already have another one sealed. Collecting habits.

Really? They were all over here. Finding the new Iron Fist is fricking impossible around here.

Got these two last week. I know I'm super late on getting the Metal Builds. But I'm just planning on getting Setsuna's Suits. :wub: For some reasons, his units is not so heavy redesigned like Kira's Freedoom and Strike Freedom. But yeah, they're super expensive. :cray:

Also, the DX Perceval came with bended head lasers. Any way that you can remove the head lasers? Can I just pull it out without damaging the pegs?

no kidding, Setsune suits are the most expensive metal builds, some are event only and web exclusive that they will probably never reissue.

congrats on your Metal build purchase.

To be honest, it's the 1/72 Strike Worrior's fault. Hehehe. 😁 And seeing that KO Seven Sword online I said, why not, and just get the other ones and its accessible price. But after seeing the Avalanche Exia, man, I need to get that one too. So I surf around just to get it in good price even if it's used or openend as long that everything is there. As for the Exia/Repair3, I'm thinking if I should get another one to display both modes. Hehehe. 😁

Wow! :shok:

We're branching out, Spanner. ^_^ These kind of spending happen to us when there's no new 1/60 scaled Valks to conquer. Mine is the Metal Build Setsuna Suits. Good for those who collect HMR's, they still have their Macross fix. ;)

You plan on weathering that?

hehe! yeah no new Valkyrie till the new year sadly.. -_- I also found another model car pretty cheap too! but its coming from Italy so it might take a while to get down here.. <_<

this tank was second hand of course but is in perfect condition with nothing missing! And I got it for a fairly reasonable price including all the figures! Looks awesome on display! B))

I'd love to weather it but I don't have the skills to do so and would have to get someone to do that for me but in all honesty the tank looks great as it is! yeah its a bit shiny but meh I still love it! ^_^

my son is mega jealous as he is the one who put me on to the series but spent all his money replacing his xb1 and a new gaming headset but he wants one of these now too! oh well.. you can only choose one thing mate! :p:lol:

found another model car going cheap. one of these Autoart Signature 1955 Le Mans winners, to replace the one I sold a while back and regretted doing so ever since..

Its been opened and displayed but in perfect condition apparently and one third cheaper than the one I had originally! ^_^

Haha you should have approach me cos i was contemplating on selling my metal builds to make way for more macross stuff. Joking seeing that bandai is coming up with more MBs from the UC era and my love for both macross and gundams, its hard to give up on MBs given the weight and details. Did you get the reissued double 0 raiser set?

For the laser i would suggest removing the head unit and dipping the lasers in warm water and straightening them before they have cooled down

Hahaha! :lol: Well, just so you know, I'm still in the market for an extra Exia/Repair3 and the Exia Repair. As for the Double O Raiser set, no. For the price it's going nowadays, it's too much for me. And that being said, for that price, I can managed on getting 2 Seven Swords and the 0Raiser. ;) This is the first time I bought any Gundam-related figures after 2012. And mostly are Robot Damashii. I haven't seen any UC era suits for Metal Builds. And if they do, I will stay away after I finished getting Setsuna's suits sans the exclusives.

Thanks for the Perceval tip. I'll try to do that over the weekend. ^_^

It'll spell the end of my wallet if Bandai started releasing metal builds of classic UC mobile suits. Don't really care for any mobile suits past the Char's Counterattack era.

Ouch. Not a big fan of the Unicorn and Sinanju, eh? :rolleyes:

I lost the comparison photos that I took of between the HWR Monster and the Girls und Panzer tank when I returned my (potentially explosive) Samsung Note 7.. <_< forgot to back up some things.. :rolleyes:

this gives a much better idea on how big these bloody tanks actually are! the HWR is big as it is but the tanks almost dwarfs it! :o:D
