Sweet Marvel collection @Slave IV - thanks for posting the pics! That Galactus looks awesome

Thanks! That Galactus is a key piece that I have cherished since I got it. Feels like something may be coming to maybe make it obsolete but not really, I’ll still have that one around and it fits perfectly on that shelf.

Great snag on the 1/48 Yammie Stealth 1J + SSP Combo @leeboo1211:good:

I know that this was listed for a long time and no one even dared to get it due to the fact the DHL is a killer with a stinkin huge box and pitted to hell. Let me guess that you paid close to mid 20k yen for shipping so in total to 50k yen when everything combined?

Now that you officially joined the 1/48 Yammie Club, this makes you the following.

@borgifiedHaha yeah, the box was beat up but everything inside looked like it was barely touched, instructions and stickers still sealed. I was more concerned with the risk of plastic cracking but I think that's also standard for Mandarake with older items. 

I asked for as compact shipping box as possible so it was 16K yen, total 38k yen so about 345USD.

These guys are hard to find nowadays, and the box so big I doubt I'd even want to stick it in luggage even if I was in person it'd take up so much space. It's the one color scheme out of all the Yamatos that I really love so... I guess I just jumped at it! Glad to be one of ya'll too!

My Haul from the last couple of weeks.  Brown box is a sealed VF-31A Kairos.  YF-29 Full Set was sealed as well.  VF-31C was a display only item so it's like new.  HiMetal R was also sealed.  Got pretty good deals for the most part.

Not only a unicorn, but a prodigal son returning.
I was in the OG Low Vis Owner's Club back in the day.  Unfortunately I had to sell it when my ex destroyed our finances.
I found a local dealer who had two of them, worked with him before at a couple of toyshows and cons.
Imagine my surprise when I opened it and found my mark on the inner tab.
My baby is home.

You bought back your own Valk!  How incestuous! :lol:

Except I know I didn't sell it to him, don't remember who it did go to, but I know it wasn't him.  Still stoked.

Especially when you consider it was a Limited Edition, I mean, how many were even produced?  @Graham was there ever an official number given?

Keep an eye out on yahoo auctions japan. I’ve purchased 5-6 low viz (in minty condition) in the last couple years and never paid more than $250 shipped.

Hopefully they knock it out of the park.  I’m not usually an electronics guy but the additional light up features they added to the Sentinel really were impressive.

Just got the Eaglemoss STO Bortasqu’ and Aelahl.  I pretty much hate every Federation design they’ve ever made but they seem to nail the progression of the Klingon’s and Romulans every time.  Bortasqu’ has some soft details unfortunately but the Aelahl is amazing in sculpt and paint detail.

First of the Figma Warrior Bugs came today.

Theyr'e really small so they may be small enough to pit against the MEP Toys 1/48 Gurab (of course in-universe that would make them rather large).
