Following up on my post in mid October, this was always a grail for me: Bandai 1/55 VF-1S Strike Valkyrie. I found one a couple months back, but all the stickers were messed up (has some rusted screws, yellowing, and a broken strike cannon connector as well, but I digress). Then Toyhax released the Bandai 1/55 label sheet which was a Godsend! Only gripes are that they don't include the factory decals and the white like on the skull aren't dark enough. But helps to complete this figure.

Congrats! That is probably the single greatest Macross toy release of all time.

Didn't plan on buying this today, I didn't pre-order, but there it was at Walmart. Between the PS5 and this X Series I was always getting the Xbox first, then a PS5 when there was enough interesting exclusives to justify the purchase, I did the same with the PS4 Pro.

It's certainly a beefy little piece of hardware for $500, I already have a bad boy 72" 4K TV with hdmi 2.1 and native 4K 120hz, so I'm all good to go!

I was able to get a PO for the digital PS5.  Still trying to secure the disk version.

Nice, I'll be playing Spiderman MM on my PS4 Pro but I'd kill for Demons Souls. I played over 350 hours on PS3 back in college, I loved that game.

Good luck on the disc version, I know there's more people out there looking for Sony's new console over either Microsoft one, hopefully you can nab a pre-order on launch night.

Picked up the blue and red 1/35 legioss to go with my greenie, along with a Toynami Beta/tread. The tread I will likely end up hooking to the Sentinel Zeta when it ships in January (using the adapter @sqidd hooked me up with).

No description available.

Nice Mospeada collection, @vladykins. :good:

By the way, I'm not sure if it's just the yellow cast on the photo. Is your Beagle already got yellowed? I also noticed that Ley's leg is not resting on the foot rest?

Yep, my Toynami Rey yellowed a long time ago and I haven't bothered to try to clean it. I don't have his foot on the foot rest but have the leg resting there instead- I like the pose better.

Nice! You bought digital and regular versions. :good:

Is it ok to ask why did you buy 2 versions?

 

One for me and one for my nephew/brother.  They are both heavy gamers.

Got this from Pit Viper Studios. I'm not very happy with it. For $360 it's pretty rough. The argument could be made that a custom helmet for $360 isn't bad. But, if I had known it was going to be this rough I would have gladly paid more for a more finished finish. Oh well, you win some you lose some.
