Thanks! No unfortunately i dont have any light up stands. :(

Hmmm. You have a tablet or something? I'm just curious to see all those gorgeous clear parts light up from the bottom inside a dark room. ^_^

not Macross or anime related but still a toy! ordered myself a new mountain bike!! :D Pivot Mach 429 SL (the updated 2016-17 version) :ph34r:

I sold my old Norco Revolver 9.2 FS to a work colleague which worked out well! saved me going through the rigmarole of advertising it and I sold it for the money I was going to ask for so im happy! ^_^

the only thing is I won't know what color it will be until it lands at the bike shop for assembly.. so it will be either be with the red or blue highlights. Either way im not so fussed as they look as good as each other!

Damn, you guys are really tempting me on these Metal Build Gundams...How good are they? Would these be considered the definitive non-model figures for Gundam? Is there a lot of metal or is it just a name like "Hi-Metal"? I'll also check out some reviews when I get a chance.

As a definitive non-model/kit Gundam figure? Yes. Is there a lot of metal compared to Hi-Metal namesake? Yes. Majority of the joints and the chests of what I have. Can't say about the other Gundam types. The minor gripe I have is that one or two of what I have the waist swivel joint is a little bit loose. Not super loose. It's more on the loose side compared to the other joints. But yeah, check reviews first before diving on this line. It's what I did first since I'm already late in this game. But like I said before, I'm not completing the whole MB line. Just selected few. And right now, it's mostly Setsuna's Suits.

TFCon Chigago Stealth Sphinx. I prefex the paint apps on the Toronto version but overall really nice. Paint job like these can only be seen on customs.

There was a 20% coupon floating around when i ordered mine earlier this week and it came out to $85 shipped. http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/toys-games-mega-man-x-boost-truforce-designer-series/30398087?ean=0813955020173

The price from N-Y was really good and they finally include a display stand, might be my last Unicorn.

Nice! ;) Let me know how's the quality of the Metal Composite compared to Metal Build. I'm kinda eyeing the RX-78 The Origins. :rolleyes:

Metal Builds are much better in terms of metal content, however i have the RX-78 the origin and that one almost feels like a metal build. Its very good and i highly recommend it.

Wait. They don't come with display stands?

They all come with a display BASE. , some have this extra rod , but none of the MC Unicorns come with adjustable displays stands that the Metal Build normally comes with , until now.

I see. Good to know. Thanks F360! :)

:unsure: The Bad , I Paid $810 due to the nice exchange rate at the time. (I panic and paid the arm and leg price) <_< before going to a different proxy route.

:wub: The Good, BiginJapan was really awesome for honoring the shipping price that they quote me on when I paid in January ( 5600 yen for Fedex)

The actual shipping cost is much much higher due to the size the weight of the boxes. (64 x 43 x 45 CM)

Nice pick up F360! The Metal Build Seed and Seed Destiny figures are really nice pieces! You're making me reconsider selling mine! LOL!

Yup yup .Both MB Destiny and Strike Freedom were excellently restyled.

Many people that originally don't like those mobile suits changed their mind after seeing the Metal build version.

I'm one of those people. If you don't have extras, I would recommend you to keep at least the MB Strike freedom.

Nice price on your MB Strike Freedom . ^_^

Nice! I love the SEED/Destiny universe so i double up on those metal builds only. I got the full package and 2 extras sets of wings. I already have the original release so i didnt need to double dip of the destiny itself.

The only "Metal Build" I have at the moment is the Origin RX-78 and it didn't come with an aerial stand, just a flat base it can stand on. Other than that the 78 is great, you can switch between the early, mid and late war configurations or mix em up. I'd say it's a must if you are a big fan of the origin design.

That is an awesome price on the Megaman X. But I can't pull the trigger. November is just too expensive right now. ^_^ I wonder if Truforce will release any more figures of the Megaman X line. I would love a Zero, the Robot Masters and a re-shelled Full Armor Mega Man X. :(

I got the reissue of the Robot Damashii Kshatriya yesterday and man it is a big toy. Looking at it on the shelf with the other Unicorn RD it looks almost too big for a cohesive display. This means my RD Unicorn collection is finished. Maybe I flesh it out with a Unicorn Mode Gundam if I find one. :)
