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

So was rocket technology but does that mean we must abandoned all our toys, comics and books featuring rockets and missiles? The first assault rifle as well BTW. Let's not throw the baby out with the bathwater. 

As to the weird pronunciation - it bothers everyone, have you never watched Trevor Noah? :)

Good kit, but falls apart a bit too much for my tastes. The MG RX-78 Origins is much sturdier.

Coming from someone who came the opposite direction: model kits->figures

Yeah, I was talking about Gunpla in general (this is my first).  I did watch several reviews between the ver 3.0 and the origins.  I liked the way the ver 3 looked just a little bit more, and it was a little bit cheaper, so I went with that.  I won't be handling it much, anyhow.

I'm just hoping I can keep this new rabbit hole pretty limited, for my wallet's sake.

2nd Max 1J to complement the PF version. 3rd PF VF-0s specifically to saunter around in the reactive armor. (practice foil/epee in the background not new)

You paid extra for a PF 0S just to cover it up? Ballar status!:good:

Ha! You'll be fine if you stick to one rule:

Don't buy another one before you finish building what you've got.

Personally, I found that buying too many at once would just lead to model building fatigue, and I'd wind up with half a dozen kits just sitting there in boxes for months on end.

Remember, with Gunpla, the stuff is basically always in production, so you don't need to go and buy it right now for fear of missing out. There's no late-night preorder madness for Master Grade kits the way there is with, say, DX Macross stuff. Just think about it - that next kit you want? You can buy it six months from now without an obscene 300% markup! You can take your time with it.

There's almost no comparison to Macross collecting.

Finally out of the box and in all its glory: Viva Miria!

Again, thanks to Shizuka, here is the couple together. I had to place them with the 1/60 Zero custom, since the HMR is taking over some of the display's real state. The red used in this Miria Arcadia is the prettiest of them all imho.867727356_maxmiria.thumb.jpg.ac82f92eb1c2150c6907959070a0008f.jpg

Instructions unclear: backlog of 130 kits.

The only exception is P-Bandai kits. Which typically get only one production run (some get reruns), and also *may* increase in cost after production.

P-Bandai are the only kits I buy anymore outside of sales.

Got the A-10! I wish the payload was a bit heavier but glad it had at least something as it was hard to tell when I ordered it. The aircraft itself is finely executed, like the F-14. This is a wonderful line of 1/100 warplanes that go perfect with my HMR Macross collection. Thanks again for sucking me in @sh9000:p BTW, If I don't find the RS6 myself and you still have it, I'll gladly take it off your hands.

I’m out of the loop with this. What is it?

See the image of the rabbit ears at the end of the tunnel (supposedly) and looking downwards at the never ending hole?

It's an super extension of this image done posted by @seti88 :p

Hence the quote (or so to speak): "Down the rabbit hole you go" if you do continue to follow in the path you have chosen. :lol:

Nice hauls everyone!

I just picked up this lovely custom 1/6 Hikaru TV figure.

I placed a 1/55 gunpod and stood him next the the T-Rex Zjentloudy for comparison.

Time to use the "Forbidden Technique!"  Punch him in the baby maker!
