Superb pic!! I was really on the fence on this Figma Motoko, skipped it in the end but I might just regret it down the road..

LOL great meme.

Good to know.  I'll have to weigh that into my decision when I decide whether or not I get one.  I was hoping it was of the same quality as the old Master Replicas FX sabers.

I never got any of the old Master Replicas but I’m guessing the hilt on this is superior to them. The hilt is a pretty amazing piece with great detail and feels like it’s made of solid billet metal. My honest take is it’s a great display piece and that’s what I want it for and that’s what it will be 99.9% of the time. Picking it up and holding it is nice because of the hilt. Swinging it around is all good too but I wouldn’t be doing any play battling with it except very carefully against soft items. I feel the dollar value should be under $100 but we all know everything is overpriced so the $200+ I paid feels reasonable and I’m already planning to order the Rey saber. That should be the last one for me though.

Thanks! If you have any of the others, you know what you’re getting. This one seems to have tighter joints and overall fit but ymmv. I actually panicked and bought this as a second one just in case something happens to my original order. Mandarake had it unopened for less than preorder price but after shipping it was probably a bit more than my original order. Did not want to miss out on this version.

SmackDown Rock and F&F Hot Wheels, got it specifically for DK's 350Z (one of my favorite rides from the series).  Was surprised to find the Hot Wheels as I was originally on my Target run to find Pokemon Oreos 😃

That Watcher build-a-figure is cool.

Just wish it was available separately, with out having to buy a bunch of useless figures you don't want.😝

Good thing I like all of the figures in the wave.

So if you buy a BAF only they automatically put you on the back burner?

Maybe they sent out cases and full sets first.  I also ordered a loose Watcher from them but didn’t receive it yet.

Yeah, they were pretty nice and durable.  They wanted you to play fight with them.  The hilt does look awesome.  I'll probably end up getting it.

Those are cool.  I still love Marvel Universe and have my sealed and loose collection of them.

Baroness is now on clearance for $12 so I price adjusted 2 sets again.

Congratulations! I was never able to complete it.

This was my dream in Masterpiece form, but I can't bring myself to buy Hound, and I think Grapple/Inferno are too small. Maybe I am being too picky. What's the best Jazz in the after market world? and Mirage? Hoist? Meh, I give up.

That's exactly what happens when the market becomes oversaturated with competing products that are more-or-less identical to each other.

Collecting MCU figures has become just as bad, with MAFEX, Hasbro, Revoltech, Bandai and Comicave all producing nigh-identical Iron Man or Spider-Man figures... 🤨

Being picky is good. Don’t settle for placeholders. IMO, there are no “best” MP style Jazz or Mirage yet so it’s better to just wait until there is if you want them or any other characters. It’s not like they are going anywhere. 

Part of why I love collecting Macross is that I don’t feel any of my Macross toys since the original 1/55 can be considered placeholders. They are all great for different things with very little to no compromises considering when they came out. Now, there are some pretty crappy Macross toys out there but I don’t own many of those because…see beginning of my post.

Thanks! It's been something of a lifelong dream since they came out. :D

One reason I never got into the MP line after Prime and Megs!

Hence why I stuck with G1.
