As I'm currently watching "Ghost in the Shell - Stand Alone Complex" I had to get me a Tachikoma.

Got this little guy from Mandarake for a good price (took the Major as bonus 😉)

Nice! I've been thinking about this... Not much good GITS merch around. Only got a ijiban kuji Major. Wish they had more Batou stuff, or the OG spider tank from the movie which is still my favorite design.

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. 

I have taken a hiatus in my MP collection. Just letting things settle for a bit. I have stream lined my collection, and condensing it. We'll see what the future brings.

Oh yes, if MegaHouse would release the spider tank with Batou in matching size I would be all-in!

Yeah, I like the stuff we've been getting but wish they would make some original movie toys. Movie style Motoko and tank would be excellent!

Nice Score!! One for the shelf and one for collecting?

Thanks.  Yeah one to open and one to keep sealed.  I usually buy multiples for a lot of figures and toys.  Titanium Man is a nice figure and scales well with Marvel Legends.  If a Marvel Select comic Iron Monger gets released I’d definitely buy it.

Oh nice! I have one of those on order. I usually don’t buy random stuff like that but it looked too good and the preview promo videos they had sold me.

I've never watched any Gundam in my life (I'm assuming that's what this is) but I've always loved the mecha designs.  This one is incredible.  I've seen other metal build kits that also looked badass.  I've been really tempted.

Wasn't sure where else to post this so I figured I'd do it here.  Have a chance to get a GX-71 Voltron set brand new for retail and as a lover of the original cartoon and seeing raving reviews on it I think I might pull the trigger.  Does anyone on here have it and what are their thoughts on how good of a toy it is?

It's Gundam-e, but not a Gundam. I don't think it has a tie in with a show/movie.

I don't like Voltron. But that toy is so good, I had to get one just as a collector of great toys and super robots. No regrets at all, it is excellent.

I am a big fan of the cartoon also and got the GX-71 years ago when it first released. I still have it on display and have never regretted buying it. It was the first time I handled a Soul of Chogokin figure and was seriously impressed. It is still the best Voltron figure on the market, you won't be disappointed.

@Special Sauce -- what he said!  DO IT! That was my exact experience as well with the GX-71.

I had pre- ordered a re-issue gx-71, having missed out on the initial run (and missed out on all Bandai DXs, but that's another story).

I heard about the carbotix version for voltron,  read that it will be a combiner and larger scale than gx-71. Pre-ordered the carbotix, and I may/ will cancel gx-71 preorder. Can only afford one.
