Another box of cats was left at my doorstep.

This is a true masterpiece.  I think I went through two or three versions of this on the first run until I was satisfied with the condition of the one I got (I'm a box guy, I know, it doesn't make any sense with Bandai).  But it was well worth it.  I can only marvel at the engineering and design of this thing.  There's only a handful of toys/collectibles that have the same sort of iconic weight and heft to them.  The first Masterpiece Optimus Prime by Takara, the Chunky Monkey, the first Masterpiece Starscream, the YF-25 from Macross Frontier (and that may be stretching it a little).  And none of them come close to the beauty of this thing.  Simply superb!

OK, this thing has exceeded all expectations. I'm not gonna say it's the best figure around but everything from the shipping, packaging, accessories, fit and finish tell me that KC actuallly cares about the products they put out and that counts for a lot. Now I have absolutly no regrets about ordering Misa and should probably order Minmei asap.

Cool.  I’ll pick up my 2 later in the morning.

If only KC had make this figure adhere to Rick's body proportions at 1/12 scale, instead of Roy's, this would've been near perfect; as it is, it's too lanky.

So, I went digging for more info on the Hachette Air Fighter Collection releases, and might have a fun little scoop for those wanting to plan out their purchases without going in blind.  I've been doing my searches in Japanese, and translating the results, and they've turned up some interesting finds.

http://www.books-ruhe.co.jp/cgi-bin/bms/list.cgi?ctg_id=airfighter

This site lists all of the releases up to #37, which, if correct, I'm absolutely grabbing as soon as CD Japan lists it. ^_^ Will probably grab the Hornet as well, while I'm at it.

Here's hoping they keep digging backwards into history, and we get some more designs from the 50s-70s. :D

Awesome, thanks! I might get the Super Hornet.

Really looking forward to that Super Hornet. Sweet paint job on the Kestrels. I was intending to get the previously-released F/A-18, but this is the more attractive option.

 

ON a side note - not sure if I should thank or curse the board's recommendation of Mandarake, Just dropped way too much $$ on my first purchase, and have a half dozen more  items on my favorite list,

Finally got this set!

Still can't get over how tiny Rodan and Mothra are but they are very nice, especially Mothra's translucent wings. Such a shame there will be no Ghidorah to go with them.

How fun! Are those the ones that are about 6" tall?

New Hot Toys Stormtrooper arrived.

What makes this different is that the articulation is much better and posing easier.

Now I know I need another. : )

My two smart ass comments to follow.:p

-Was Hot Toys able to improve their aim?

-Hahahahahahahahaha, you spelled "need another" wrong. It's spelled, "I need a whole squad of these!"
