Man, I really love that piece! The most perfect toy ever made IMO.

I didn't have a Macross Chunky when I was a kid. But I did have JetFire. My hands remembered it immediately. The nostalgia is strong!

Yep, and now you have the added niceness of the heatshield and working gun that can shoot your eyes out.:lol:

Haha, no elitism here. Just paying respect to the greatest toy ever made. Young and old can all appreciate the greatness that is the Chunky Monkey. ;)

Your getting Mezco One: 12 stuff as well @nathans82?

There's a story behind this one.

My copy of MP-29+ arrived from Manda via DHL and I ordered it via EMS originally five days before Manda posted the Suspension of Mailing was to be in effect. Two days before the payment was due, I emailed Manda Nayuta if there is a possibility to change the shipping to EMS to DHL to speed things up as EMS was delayed.

Agreement was made and I paid the difference. Shipping was done on Friday, came in the DHL Depot in Vancouver, British Columbia on Monday, got nabbed in Custom Fees.  Paid the fees last night and got delivered today, plus totally disinfected the entire box before opening it. Delivery guy was also taking pre-cautions as well with the gloves and mask. This is the Shockwave that I was looking forward to get, not the lilac looking one.

Singing the song: "One eyed, one eyed giant purple people eater" while fiddling with it. Note that my camera doesn't pick up the dark rich purple as it picks it up in blueish-purple hue and left the coil in the package until I get my MP shelf up again. 

Edit: It shows purple in this pic anyways.

I have been looking out for MP-29+ as well, but find the current going prices very steep.

If you don't mind me asking, how much did you get it for at manda?

16k yen and there was another one for 18k yen (now sold out). Check out the site frequently as there will be a possibility that one will surface back up, just give it some time.

MP-29+ was listed for 20k yen when it first came out. 

Edit: My copy was used, package damaged that's why it was 16k yen.

Yeah, I collect certain Mezcos for my collection. Most Mezco stuff ends up on my Store for sale.
