OMG, that is literally my top 4 Macross wish list in one picture!  On a completely unrelated note what is your address and what times is your house unoccupied?  Of course I'm completely joking, sorry not really a joking matter.  I had a good friend who over the course of 30+ years amassed the most amazing collections of Star Wars stuff I'd ever seen and by inviting over the wrong people ended up robbed blind, the police recovered most of it back minus what the bastard was able to sell.........  So, not funny I guess.

That's my everyday nightmare... Arriving back and don't find anything :huh:

Hmm, I remember reading something like this somewhere. Not sure if it was in this forum or from Youtube. If I remember correctly, the police weren't that helpful. He had a lot of stuff, then got robbed. He was able to rebuild his collection eventually though but it was a crappy experience.

Or perhaps what I'm recalling is an incident related to a Macross collection.

Didn't have much time in the middle of the week but my 2nd shipping from US P Bandai came in.

Everything came in perfectly.  Brown shipper box included 

METAL BUILD GUNDAM ASTRAY RED FRAME KAI 

METAL BUILD TACTICAL ARMS & TIGER PIERCE OPTION SET

I broke my own rule about Eaglemoss stuff and bought the USS Titan.  I figured something like that might never be made by another company again.  Riker representing.

sweet pickup!  I didn't know the Titan was out. ...how do you keep track of the new Eaglemoss releases?  I've never found a good way!

Nice! I might have to pick one up myself. Haven't picked up many Eaglemoss ships lately.

Anyone get the new jumbo size Eaglemoss ships?

The Titans arrival was a surprise to me too, it was in pre-order when I looked, due for November.  Two days later it shipped.  I really only find ot about releases via either bbts e-mails when they advertise new Eaglemoss pre-orders or I'll see a review from IrishTrekkie or Thretrekcollector on youtube.  I saw a review for The Titan at Thetrekcollectors channel and went looking around looking for a place to buy it afterwards.  It was really impulse, I don't like how horrible Eaglemoss' qc is.

Thetrekcollector has reviewed several of the larger ones on his YouTube channel plus he has an extremely jovial Irish accent.

I agree, the Eaglemoss QC is rather hit or miss, when they are on point, they are great though! Mainly it's the nacelles that are a problem for me on some of them.  The Enterprise E being the worst sadly.  Thanks for the links! I wanted the jumbo sized D, but its pricey now and hard to come by.

Nintendo seemed to wise up this year, it was easy to get a SNES Classic, not like the Nintendo Classic last year. Fans Toys Phoenix is a MUST HAVE figure in my opinion, he's easily my figure of the year so far, he is a massive, perfect, G1 cartoon MP Skyfire. Mezco Deadpool is really awesome as well, highly recommended, any variant will do, there is also an X-Men colored version and a X Force version. I wanted this more classic Deadpool to go with my eventual Jim Lee Mezco Wolverine...

Nice haul! What's this Mezco Jim Lee Wolverine you speak of? Not the first Wolverine figure they are putting out is it? Other than the colors, it doesn't look very Jim Lee ish. Just wondering if you are talking about some other one I haven't seen yet.

He looks amazing. Mezco Web Store exclusive, he's long sold out, releasing this Christmas.

You can get it directly from Eaglemoss ( https://shop.eaglemoss.com/usa/star-trek-starships/uss-enterprise-ncc-1701-d-85-inch-oversized-edition ).  It's in Stock, and discounted too.

Gotcha...I kinda regret passing on that when I had the chance but I have the Revo version on the way. Neither one look Jim Lee to me though.

That's the best way to go, actually.  When it shows up broken Eaglemoss will actually replace it for you.

 

If you want Jim Lee Wolverine wait for the Hasbro one.

I have the Juggy release, just preordered the Vintage version and will get the Yellow/Blue one when it comes...Just wondering/hoping there was a better version from a quality company. NBD, money saved!

I'm admittedly not the biggest X-Men fan, at all really, so I can say I definitely can't see or tell the difference, that Mezco looks Jim Lee enough to me! I saw Hasbro is working on a 12" "Jim Lee" Wolverine, it looks pretty good, I don't like the massive scale or proportions at all, is that the figure everyone is excited for? Came home to a package after spending five hours waiting to donate blood today, very dark day today in Vegas, gonna be working lighter hours and helping out at some places throughout the week. Shitty people suck.
