Not just you, Shizuka.

Now class, who can tell me what one thing all these sci-fi/fantasy characters have in common?  ^_^

1.) They are primates

2.) They possess 20 digits (10 fingers, 10 toes)

3.) They have 7 orifices on their head (2 eyes sockets, 2 ear canals, 2 nostrils, 1 mouth), no including small openings like pores, where hair follicles protrude from the skin, or wounds.

and so much more!

I have a coworker who used to drop $1500 plus on handbags in a single shopping trip. Just tell him how lucky he is you're ONLY spending $550.. per shopping trip.

I figure if I sell my regular Max + Miria, and maybe a few other things, I can at least recover some of the cost of the 2 PFs that I just bought. That will cut down the sting a bit.

I got an A on one of my midterm exams... so I am treating myself.  Yes, I know I am rationalizing.... just let me have this one.  :help:

@jenius  I know what you mean. One of my friends from MIT got married to a girl visiting the United States as a tourist from China that he met thru Match.com. His wife, who does not work, insisted that he get a 2nd job because she wanted him to buy her a $50K handbag and a $70K BMW.... which he did.  :cray:*sigh*  I never want to become one of those wives... 

Plus,  I am not big on handbags. I prefer lugging around my MIT backpack wherever I go.

Normally I say to each their own...but 50k for a handbag? OMG. 

Haha, I was going to say $1500 is slumming it in the world of handbags. 

PF M&M are hugely tempting to me too but I am exhibiting self control I never would have had on them. I just don’t care about PF enough on that style.

Can't blame the guy actually. Probably he fell in love with her -- deeply. For people who fell in love, their reasoning is it doesn't matter where you meet in the first place. :rolleyes: Unless, there's some other reasons why he married her. :spiteful: And with that, I think this is not the best thread to talk that over. ;)

 

I wouldn't quite say it was a grail but definitely one I'd wanted for some time in the Metal Build Astraea.  S.H. Figuarts Mr. Satan also came in.

Congrats, @Kuma Style! Actually, with the current price it's going for for those two, I can say that it's already a grail.  :good: 

 

Oh man, more MB pics coming soon from @Kuma Style Nice!

I just picked this up from the post office

I'm looking forward for mine as well. But my package was delivered by our office mail agent to a different building so I need to file a ticket. :unsure: Hopefully it gets delivered in our building today or tomorrow. Hopefully before the weekend. :rolleyes:

Mine was delivered to a new address that I'm not at yet so I was worried about my ability to pick it up but all good. And I also know that my address change with NY was no issue and all my other items to come from them will go to the right place.

As for the figure, it's another gem from HMR again as far as I'm concerned.

Such a great line, Macross or otherwise and I still think they seem to put some extra love into these non Macross releases.

That's so cool. :good:

I'm just happy that I'm able on getting the mechas that I like from the 80's with today's engineering. And that's a cool thing for me. Though it's a little bit expensive. ^_^

Having received the RD Iron Giant Galient OAV Ver last week, I wish that Bandai will make the TV version of it that separates into Panzer Falcon (torso) and Strike Vehicle (legs) like the one above. And hopefully someone will tackle Dorvack too. ;)

Tell me about it, lol! I literally need another gif from you for all these other lines to show my wallet getting obliterated by them.:lol:

I saw those RD figures and they look amazing, I've just been able to resist most of the RD line so far and hoping to keep it that way but I did just order a GP-02.

Get on it, chop chop!:D

Ha! Aside from spending money on our hobbies, I try not to miss a day working so I have money to pay for it. So I'll try my best to squeeze it in in my family busy schedule. :lol:

And it's also why I haven't started continuing my PF custom Valk. :unsure:

All good! As you hopefully know, I was totally kidding and would not be bothered a bit if you never do it. But if you do, you know they always spark that bit of joy in us crazy collector types.:D

No worries. It's all good too. Besides, I always have fun doing it too. So that's good enough reason for me. ;)

I wish we could read the quoted text author again.  I wonder if this is a glitch.

The other thing is the quick link when you finish reading a thread to go to the next one. It used to be labeled with what thread you were going to. Now it just says "Next Thread" so you have no idea where you end up.

@Slave IV You gotta stop making that Xabungle look so good! 

Just a quick out of the box shot of Mr Satan

Haha, you make everything look too good, lol! Like this Mr. Satan.

Seriously, I really do think the non Macross HMR toys are the gems of the series even though I am a much bigger Macross fan and I know it's an unpopular thing to say on a Macross forum. They are all so well made and have so much character. I guess part of it is most HMR Macross toys have bigger and better counterparts where these other ones are so rare and unique to see in toy form.

My wife surprised me with this Darth Vader lightsaber she picked up for me when we were at Disney World. I didn't care for the cheap plastic stand it came with, so I made this custom stand today..

That's awesome! :good:

What are those brown smudges on the hilt?
