Just snagged another Bandai Pro-Shop VF-25F off YJA for cheap. This is my 4th clear one. Eventually these will be used as bases for my deculture decal builds. Now just to snag one more for cheap and I'll have one for each of the SMS memebers and 2 for Alto (Ranke and Sheryl.)

When did the VF-2SS come out? I've been seeing it around here the past week or two. Chances are low it's still in stock at HLJ et al? It's hit and miss, but I love the curves on that nose...

Hobby Search sent me the in-stock notification on the 21st. Picking mine up tomorrow morning.

Here ya go, not even low stock yet: https://hlj.com/product/BANN17742

Got some good toys today. Sold my 6S to get the iPhone X and i was using an old Galaxy in the meantime. It was driving me nuts! :lol: 

New Haul 12/04/2017

 

Have you fiddled with the Revo Megs or is it still in the box? I've read that Wolvie is better made than Deadpool and Venom put together and that Megs is also following suit. I can see a Fatal Attraction re-creation with the two in a diorama when battling together.

 

After selling off my two Yamatos 1/60 Fast and Strike Roy: DYRL (MK.1) and VF-1J Hikaru with the GBP (also MK.1) when relocating back into YVR from YYZ, I bought this as a replacement after much debate and received it last month on the 15th, got it used as it was a display item.

Nice!!! Post your thoughts and some pics of the Big Powered.

As requested, sorry it too me so long to get something up. To start, you get a ton of stuff in the box.

Everything is painted and very durable. This is a toy you can and should play with. Everything connects together via multiple points and you can make several different combined vehicles. Nothing felt like it was going to break and all of the connection points are solid. Strong ratchets in the knees and hips, the combined robot mode is very stable. 

Base Mode:

This review sums up the Big Powered GV.

Magneto isn't nearly as good as Wolverine or Spider-Gwen are, the two best IMO.

Wow, the Big Powered is really growing on me. I'm really tempted to get one, along with the extra bikes. I'm a sucker for toys that have removable figures and stuff. Unfortunately, getting the  VF-31jKai from NY set me back big time for this year, and I need to give my wallet some breathing space. After that, its the Arcadia SDF-1 Premium, and Bandai will probably spring the other Delta Valks either before or after the movie comes out in Feb too. That's pretty much got my wallet booked. 

Its a cool toy nonetheless, and I congratulate you on its purchase! I'm sure you'll have tons of fun with it General Rasp! :D

Damn you Saburo! You made me go and order that Macross Model Graphix book! :D

Hahaha!  Nice!  You'll be very pleased with them.

I might give this book a miss.. I would like to get it but its gonna cost me about $90 (aud) which I think is a bit much considering I just spent a small fortune on a VF-31J Kai..

You can always pick them up later. :D

Thanks @General Rasp for the pictures and the review.  Its good to know that the knees and joints are strong I was wondering how they hold up to the weight of the upper body.  I'll wait till after Xmas to pic one up, I have spent too much on myself already. :lol:

Bought a HMR VF-1J. It's my second VF-1 from this line (I have a CF VF-1A). I'm in this line for the Destroids and enemy mecha, but wanted another VF-1. It's a fun toy for its size!!!

Cool, and yes the HMR VF-1 is fun. You gotta have at least a few valks to keep those destroids company!

And I am just was amazed as @no3Ljm as to where @sh9000 keeps finding those HM super parts.

How is the leg room inside of these premium 1/18 cars @spanner?  Sometimes it’s difficult to put my 1/18 figures inside my cars.

Hehe! Some are good some aren't.. sadly I think the manufacturers don't put into consideration people wanting to fit scale figures inside these cars..
