@Slave IV Seeing your Boba Fett helmet got me interested for a moment and I would have gotten it if it was available at Dorkside.  Now sold out so it wasn’t meant to be.  It’s all good though.

Yeah, I think you will get other chances at it. I'll let you know if I end up ordering another.

Din A'Jarden's Helmet was not announced @Slave IV

It was just a posting of a cos-play version that was posted on Pinterest/Instagram and maybe Reddit. 

The Concept version (proto-Fett) has been shown, however is the pre-order for that one been announced at all (don't seem to recall anything on that version)? 

Din wasn't announced but it was teased with a rumor I guess:

That's the one @Vertex

I must have skipped over that announcement. 

I might order the ESB Fett helmet sometime soon. I've got two things to be dropped at my house this month and another one in June. 

Time to make a Boba Fett Shrine as well! :D

Do it!

It was hard to get a good shot but here is a view from inside the helmet and looking through the rangefinder.

@borgified I'm more of an Imperial at heart as you can see in the pic :D but I'm giving some serious consideration to getting to proto-fett helmet. (BTW - most recent Macross related purchase can be seen at bottom of pic).

Time to put this along side with your HT 1/6th ROTJ Fett as I know that the helmet is painted in ESB colours anyways.  

Maybe Hasbro might do one for Jango/Din J'Arden/Sabine Wren/Jodo Kast? :unknw:

Boba fett helmet = ordered!

Sweet! I’m in on Biker Scout and AT-AT driver helmets for sure! If BS makes them.

Also got these

At first I though the Disney one was bigger but they look very close to the same size. Almost like they share the same mold. But the Disney one has better paint apps and weighs about 3 times more and cost less. Disney wins!

I guess it's not really a toy, but I found an old handheld Coca-Cola radio that works well as a soda machine for my miniature model video arcade.

Great setup!  I absolutely love the SOC Voltrons! 

I just picked up my 1st BUT NOT LAST New Age (Thundercracker) Transformer. OMG!!! This company knows that they are doing!  These little guys are amazing!!! Very high quality and crazy good transformation and G1 look and great articulation for their size!  In lieu of HM-R Macross, I'm all in for this line!

Haha, nice on picking up the NewAge Seeker. I gotta put those and their Jazz as some of the best toys I’ve messed with in years.

Thanks! I think I have them all in either original or reissue now except VT-1 and VE-1. I haven’t done the GBP yet though. And I don’t have Roy with fast packs.  I don’t plan on doubling down on OG vs Reissue. Where I can get the reissue, I’ve just gone that route because I think they’re better.

So, Jungle sent me a 1:48 Yamato Valkyrie a couple weeks back.  The toy is in great shape, but upon removing it from the tray...

...I noticed a bunch of dead bugs under it.

And under the tray as well.  :unsure:

Be aware, there may be bugs in the Jungle.  :unknw:

I would love to have a nice prebuilt model of the Buck Rogers Starfighter. I know the Chronicle one is out there, but don't have that kinda cash. Hopefully someone will make one.

I'm making one right now...

I've decided to go with a Rebel Alliance color scheme for it, but I liked the look of the flat matte base coat so much I photographed it before the primary color gets applied. ^_^

Shadow Thunderfighter!  :lol:

I was not going to get any Transformers, but this convinced me to give this line a try and pulled the trigger on Starscream

Me too.

@tekering is that the Tsukuda Monogram kit? I have that in storage. How was the build? With these old kits, I expect a lot of work to get it to looks as good as yours. They are going for insane prices.

@Slave IV and @derex3592 Would you say those New Age Transformers are kind of like HMR toys in terms of posability and fun toys to play with?

Lots of Marvel Legends figures coming in by the end of this week.

Yeah, they most closely remind me of HMR and I even mentioned the similarities (I think here). They are even smaller than HMR though but I would say they might even be a step up in terms of transformation and posability. Other than some accessories, they are perfect transformation and the articulation is comparable to modern MP level...as in, ab swivel and crunch, ankle swivels, double joints, etc. I will go so far as to say the two NewAge molds I got (Seeker and Jazz) are the best new line of transforming toys I've experienced in years. MOST highly recommended! I'm on the verge of ordering the whole Conehead set just for Thrust because Thrust is the only one I want but they only come in a pack (Anyone want to go in or buy the other two from me at cost?).

See what you've done here @nightmareB4macross? Enabling at its finest!:lol:

I would do MANY shady and possibly illegal in 48 states things for that Buck Roger Star Fighter @tekering!!! SUPER jealous over here! It's possibly my all time favorite space fighter design!!!  Please post pics when you get it finished!  @sh9000 - As @Slave IV said, these New Age guys are just the business!  I WANT to buy ALL the Seekers, Megatron and pre-order the 3 G1 "Reflector" Triplets, however the wife me thinks would have issues with that at the current time!

 

My question is --- WHERE is their Soundwave and Optimus Prime??? Surely they have those on the drawing board!!!???

 

BT Dubs---in case you guys missed it, buy enough seekers and the bases combine in a circle standing on their ends to make THE SPACE BRIDGE!!! :clapping:

Haha yeah, NewAge is the $#!+. Their Soundwave is in the preorder stage so it should be on the way. Not sure about their Prime yet. I'm probably going to get Soundwave and really waiting for Galvatron.

@tekering That Star Fighter looks really nice! I'm sure it will be even better when you finish it. Look forward to seeing it!

Well.....there's another one I'm gonna have to have...LOL. 

Yeah, I believe there was some translated description that says it can also light up for stuff like Cybertronian lightpost mode. It might be that part that says "Extra Shiny Tapes". Pehaps it has special tapes that light up? Either way, I will order it for sure!

So, this will be the third Macross Jet ordered this year, the first two were, well, scams.....1st was a Valkyrie factory 1/60 VF-1J Max with Super parts, that was scam..2nd was a Hi Metal R VF-4G Roy, that the third party seller on Amazon has not arrived yet after almost 2 months, still fighting Amazon for a refund, so I recently discovered Mandarake. I ordered a used YF-29 30th anniversary scheme, the pictures show that some of it is faded, yellowed, but that doesn’t bother me. Here is to hoping that I have no problems with this order. Third time is the charm?

You can count on Manda for anything that they have listed for sale @twich

You'll get your items, however did you choose DHL for shipping? You know that EMS and SAL are a no go as your in the States.

That saying, did you read the thread: "Japan Post  Suspension of International Mail" first before making the order??  

http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/topic/48060-japan-post-suspension-of-international-mail/

For your package a regular DX sized box (not like the DX YF-19 Full Set Sized version as it's very heavy)

DHL - 7950 yen

For those who are not on the "Suspended Mailing List" - EMS: 4500 yen with delays in shipping up to a month wait.

Some recent acquisitions:

A new year, new sentai mech to collect.

At just about 2 feet long, the SSD hardly counts as a mini, even in game it’s designed more to be like a boss battle.

9344C60D-D3AC-4C10-9B70-8CAA63A808C3.jpeg

About 60 cm? That's more like it.

The Bandai kit I got was incredibly...compact.

So I put in a request to ship out my HLJ PW on Monday night... and it's already here! :shok:

The shipment was mostly miscellaneous items like hobby supplies, but I did pick up a few model kits to work on if I need a change of pace from valkyrie detail. 

Some gunpla kits. The GP01 quickly became one of my favorites after seeing 0083, and finding out Kawamori himself was behind it was awesome.

Added another Enterprise to my fleet.

And since we're required to wear masks at all times while at work... :rolleyes:
