I love this thread, but my only wish would be for people to reply without quoting.  plus more words...;)

The whole point of the quote function is to quote and have context for a discussion. It is always helpful to have the content being talked about right there, otherwise people have to scroll back through pages to find out what people are talking about. The best solution would be if quoted content was just truncated with an accordion type reveal so it is there for those who want it but also not taking up space for those who don't.

Back OT, All I got recently are a couple Marvel Legends for good deals, Night Thrasher and Living Laser for a bit over $10 each. Some Hot Wheels (finally got the red Porsche 917).  Oh, and my VF-1D HMR arrived.

All good purchases @Slave IV.  Congrats on the Hot Wheels Porsche 917.  Good deals.  Where did you get Night Thrasher for that price?

Thanks! The ML were from Amazon...Got one (LL) with the recent $5 off coupon and the other (NT) was from a 3rd party seller who had a random deal.

Cool.  I couldn’t think of anything to get at Amazon since all of the figures I want are preorders from other places and already locked in.  I still haven’t used the Hasbro Pulse coupon either.

Got some stuff in this week. For only 25 each, I really dig the Gundam Universe Mechas.

Nice.  Another Marvel Legends collector.  Feel free to post your collection and pics in the Marvel Legends thread.

Not at all Macross, but I have been looking for Aphrodite A for ever. As soon as I bought her I found a 1973 Jumbo Machinder Mazinga at a great price with original parts. I really like this set!

That's self evident, quoting the message is fine when it serves a purpose.  Seeing the same picture (5) times in-a-row was my point, and it happens quite a bit.  Any reasonable person will agree there's no need for that.  When the context is literally right above what you're typing, that's the definition of redundancy. :bigshok:  In almost (20) years here, I don't recall feeling the need to quote a picture that was literally just shown.  :rofl:  If you or anyone else wants to discuss it further please feel free to send me a private message.  Otherwise we'll be off topic and Shawn prefers there's no arguments.  :hi:

As an example, very nice John Wick Mustang sh9000!  (Now someone can see the context since the post and pictures are on the same page, and they didn't need to scroll through the exact same pictures again...and again.)  :p

To get us back on topic, here are some of my recent toy purchases:

Context without needless scrolling or causing eye strain. haha

Yeh, it was a sad day, I'd had it ever since X-Mas of '85! Survived in my parents attic in TX for over 20 years! It was in my Macross display cabinet for like 8 years, pulled it out to re-arrange the cabinet one day and the shoulder just literally crumbled off in my hand..I legit almost ugly cried.:( 

 

It was a good Xmas....(from Toys R Us)...Next to the one where I came home to find the original Hasbro Millennium Falcon, this is the one I remember the best!

Sorry for the late comment, but that pic kicks ass! Very cool man. Part of the collecting I do now is because I wasn’t able to get much as a kid. My key prize was a G1 Jetfire (that my cousin wound up breaking). I had some killer He-Man too. But missed out on gems like this. So now I collect with...

No argument needed, just a discussion. All I have to say about it is quotes don’t always occur right after the quoted post. It could and often be pages after...context is needed. Bottom line is the functionality of the forum should be fixed, not the way we use it. But I agree if we feel like editing the quote when it is right under the quotes, it helps but we shouldn’t have to, especially if the quotes were accordioned automatically. 

Anyways, my latest:

Decided I wanted the original six Avengers Figuarts Endgame figures. Paid more then I wanted to for Cap and Tony, but it is what it is, the price is only going to go up. Passing on Ant-Man since I have two Figuarts of him already, passing on Ronin too, but Hawkeye and Hulk are both pre-ordered, just need a "The Dude" Lebowski Thor.

A Volksie! Long time no see...in my childhood they were everywhere.

Pronounced "Forlksvachen" BTW. I cringe everytime an American makes it sound like an (egg y)volkswagon, ha, ha. :)

Nice haul.  Congrats on Mojo.  That figure still looks good with newer Marvel Legends.  I skipped that Captain Britain though and I’m hoping a classic Excalibur version gets released.

Thank you so much! Just need a Toy Biz Sentinel and a Galactus and I'll have all the Toy Biz Villains I need.

Both types look great.  I’ve got 3 Hasbro Sentinels and 4 Toy Biz Sentinels.  I might get rid of 1 Toy Biz version so if you want it let me know.

The way Americans pronounce it bothers you but the fact it was started by the Nazis doesn't? Strange standards you have there. :p
