Something like this, perhaps?  B))

Impressed! Maybe you can slightly highlight the scar above on his left eye. It's also one of Usagi's trademark as Sakai-san has been doing in his strips.

I wish that they can do Tomoe and Gen for the lineup however, I think that Sakai-san has other plans.

Edit: Maybe on the katanas as well if you have time.

Ah thanks! Yeah, they do come with a lot of accessories. How much did those end up costing shipped with the sale? I checked when you mentioned it but didn't go through the cart to see if there were any fees or how much they were. 

The order of 3 Ninjas came out to $98.08 shipped. Each figure originally costs $39.50 without the sale so my order was $29.61 less after shipping.  If there was a cheaper shipping option to pay for I would have chose it because I didn’t need priority mail shipping.  I just checked ebay.  There’s a set of 3 that I might try to win but if it ends up too high then nevermind.  People have been paying $65-100 for just one figure.

So about $30 each...not great but not bad. The accessories help and so does knowing how much people have paid. I might bite on some of they go on sale again.

Yeah.

I just checked their site to prepare for next time.  Cheapest shipping for 1 figure is $4.66, 2 or 3 figures is $9.19, 4 or 5 figures is $11.80, and 6 or 7 figures is $13.75, etc.  I can’t match my 3.75” collection for a lot of figures in 6” scale but I think I need at least a few more Ninjas.

That custom Macross Plus shirt would have looked much better without the watermarks.  I’m not sure why they couldn’t just get a normal pic off the internet to print on the shirt.

there's only 1 obvious reason.  The antenna on the yf-21 was too much, so censorship was placed.

if only he ordered order the ATX/blu-ray/ uncensored version. :D

Boy that's a nice display idea for the 19 and hopefully 21 dx. Both flying in front of a printed sky...

got a Chinese knockoff NECA HL2 Gordon Freeman. didn't even think to check if official and was like omg what a deal lol... had a better look at the item description last night and they don't try to hide it's unofficialness. it's alright tho. seems to match the official pics very closely, only the colour seems less bright.

I don't feel the need to seek out on official one but will look closer at the descriptions in future. I have 2 Predator figures on the way I now realise are knockoffs, hopefully I'm as satisfied with them as I am here. either way lesson learnt :)

Just thought of this now. 

If the Macross heroine figures continues, they should add May Fong Lone (from Macross +), Milla (DYRL, Macross 7), Mirage [and possibly Miku Miku and Fre Fre] (Delta).

Just ordered this from Amazon.  Thank you PRIME DAY!

image.png.41cb0cb632bebd0b99d9e792d9757cce.png

I really should not be spending money on more valkyries.....

but....

PRIME DAY!

Free shipping!

Fulfilled by Amazon

Listed as being in New condition

And these are priced at about 25,000 yen from Mandarake, AmiAmi, and such...

 

P.S.

At the time I placed my order, it said there was 1 more left. I was ALMOST tempted to just order both. But that would just be too excessive. Maybe someone here on MWF will pick it up.

 

P.P.S.

Hmmm..... maybe this is not actually a PRIME DAY sale, and just a normal price markdown? Not sure.... the VF-19F has been on my Amazon watch list for quite a  whiles, and I just ordered it when I saw the price drop today. Well, regardless... I am not going to complain. I am just anxious to receive my shipment on Thursday.

The Yamato VF-19s don't have the greatest market price as I recall, that said $125 with free shipping for a new one is a pretty darn good deal.

I ordered the 19F, not the S.

Pretty happy with the price... but I have no shelf space for this.

VF-19(plural) :p

I feel you on the no shelf space, I've got 24 figures sitting in boxes, waiting for me to move to somewhere I can display them all. 14 of those are 1/60 Macross as well.

You mean Kumo Kumo. :)

They ought to continue the line with all the Walkure but the Delta figure releases have been pretty anemic whereas we're still getting Sheryl & Ranka figures 10 years on.

There has been a influx of Sheryl and Ranka that is widely available on Manda and other sites while Delta has been a hit and a miss..

That’s an AMAZING deal on a 19F.  Nice score!

Believe me... I am pretty happy about it! 

I liked getting the Yamato 1/60 VF-19 Kai from YJA for 13,000 yen.... but Buyee's proxy and shipping fees really turned a $120 purchase more into a $170 one.

So, the fact that  I get Amazon Prime's free 2 day shipping of a new product (rather than a used toy as was the case with my VF-19 Kai), I am happy as a kitty cat resting on a student's textbook and homework assignment... *sigh*

I wish I had known about that deal.  I would have bought the other one.

That's a GREAT deal on what is..IMHO..the best 19!..Congrats! 

I like that it is a beautiful shade of blue.

Blue and orange are my favorite colors, so the VF-19F stood out for me... and looks better than the bright red of the VF-19 Kai... in my opinion anyways.

You’ll be happy with the 19F.  It’s a great color.  People notice that one.

Wolverine on his Motorcycle and the entire Sp//dr Build-A-Figure wave showed up today.  I’m a huge Spider-verse fan so haven’t ng three more for the Spider-Team is awesome to me.  And I love the Sp//dr power armor.

 @Shizuka the Cat Mommar speaks the truth, 19F is a great blue and in my mind, if Max had flown a 19--he would have had the 19F.  It totally looks like a Max ride.  The white with orange stripes Zola Patrol is also a gorgeous plane....(yes I know..I'm an enabler!)
