Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

If you're getting the RVF-171EX, you could just put it on that and if they do release Alto's NUNS wingmen, you could put the MDE particle cannon and anti-ship missile pod on one of those since that's all they were equipped with. Then there would be nothing wasted!

Edit: oh yeah, except the wings :p

Thank you for suggestion MJ, but I think its best I not buy the any of the 171's. As much as I like them, I would want all the versions and knowing that the CF version will eventually break would drive me crazy. But I am considering getting the Armored parts. :)

Here are some new additions to my collection, sorry not Macross but Tokusatsu items!

From my favorite TV show as a kid Kikaider

S.H.Figuarts Hakaider and Kikaider

Congrats on the GX-64 Yamato! I have one too, I had to put it back in its box because I don't have room to display it. :(

Thanks Saburo! We actually have the same problem: I have officially run out of shelf space as well. Hehe!

Good news is that I found out recently that Ikea Indonesia sells Detolf shelves! I'm planning on getting a few (hopefully with my wife's blessing) to use for my growing collection.

My wife and I are actually watching Yamato 2199 now. Apparently, she didn't watch the original series (like the States, it was shown as Starblazers in the Philippines) so it isn't as nostalgic for her as it is for me. She's liking the story so far though. :)

I'm very excited to play around with my Yamato/Argo and feel very blessed to finally have one (I used to make cardboard models of this when I was a kid!).

One thing that I'm NOT happy about however, is the fact that Indonesian Customs have apparently DOUBLED income tax for imports. I had to pay through my nose to have this and my SOC Daimos released from the Post Office. :angry:

This isn't boding well for my toy collecting hobby... :(

Now you're making me want to get a GX-64 Yamato. <sigh>

Hehe, sorry! :D

I think that as long as you can get if for under USD200, its a good deal. I got mine from Mandarake where quite a few are being sold for that price.

For me, the Yamato/Argo ranks right up there with Voltes V and Daimos as far as 80's era anime nostalgia is concerned. :)

Haha.. running out of room. The story of the toy collector. I have Figs and Valks on my dinning table right now and all my shelves are full.

Be nice to your wife and I am sure she'll give you her blessing. Taking her out for a nice dinner will help too. :)

I watched Starblazers then later watched Space Battleship Yamato, it was one of my favorites. Then when 2199 came out I was very nostalgic about it and I liked the changes that were made. Now its one of my top 5 animes.

I had lots of playing with the GX-64, the sound effects are so cool. I fired the wave motion gun so many times. LOL

Yikes, that sucks. :( How much is the import tax in Indonesia?

Now you're making me want to get a GX-64 Yamato. <sigh>

Its an awesome piece to have, I'd highly recommend it. :D I'd take some photos but mine is boxed up right now.

Hehe, sorry! :D

Under $200USD is a great price!

Although I was born in the Philippines, I never got to watch Voltes V since my family immigrated to the US when I was a baby. But my cousin remember Voltes V it was her favorite show.

You owe it to yourself to watch the series at least once. But don't blame me if you order the 40th Anniversary SOC GX-31V as a result. :p

Please don't ask. I'm still trying to get over it. What really gets to me though is that I'm technically supposed to be tax and duty free (I work for a diplomatic establishment). And I thought Philippine Customs was bad. :(

I didn't know you were born in the Philippines, Saburo! I agree with Abaddon that you owe it to yourself (and your Filipino heritage!) to watch Voltes V (preferably the English dubbed version that was done by Filipinos in the 80's! :D ) Voltes V had such a huge influence on our generation of Filipinos. It's what got me into Japanese pop culture (and toy collecting) in the first place!

Thanks guys, yeah everything fits until the inevitable next load of boxes arrives!

Speaking of which, picked these up yesterday...

Got the photo-etched parts for each too.

Quite how soon I'll start making them is another thing entirely! :)

Let's see, already built Hikaru's VF-1J, so I picked up another one recently so I can take the yellow decals and S head from the Strike/Super Kit and make a TV Roy VF-1S. Waiting on the launch arm availability before I start on the VF-1A Super.

LOL. I have watched a few episodes and I have taken pics of a Gokin Voltes V, not sure which one though. Its from a friends collection.

Yep, born in Manila then my parents immigrated to the US and settled in Hawaii when I was 3yrs old. Growing up in Hawaii, I had a lot of exposure to anime and Japan culture. I have watched a few episodes of Voltes-V and its fun to watch the old shows.

Grabbed the Macross Quarter aircraft carrier thing.

Waiting on the Konig Monster and 6 other things that are coming...

Someone help me.

Please.

It all started with 1 Valk for me... then a over a year later I have boxes stacked up in my closets. :blink: And possibly going to rent a small storage in my apt complex to store all my toys.

Yep, it's a universal constant. You never have enough valks.

Very nice display!! My detolf buying keeps getting pushed back, I better get on that.

This. Picked it up from post office past Monday and I won't be able to unpack it for at less one week more :(

Nice, sorry you have to delay on opening it. :(

Nice Valks stacked to the ceiling! Almost to the ceiling

Holy crap, holy crap, holy crap! I wasn't expecting a package until Monday, low and behold I got a text update telling me my package was en route and would be delivered early!

Holy crap this thing is huge, and the box it came in is even bigger, I had to open my second front door to get it through, I haven't seen a box this big since Hot Toys Tumbler. You know a figure is special when the box alone is flashy and gorgeous, I can't wait to break this guy and my other Legacy Zords out so I can put together the Legacy Ultrazord! I almost dropped money on an Arcadia 0D pre-order but I wasn't happy with what I've seen so far, plus I think they're asking way, way too much, I ended up getting this guy and another MonsterArt instead, my SpaceGodzilla will be here Wednesday! Completion feels good, and all put together this guy is going to make a hell of a display piece, I was going to get one for myself for Christmas but I'm pretty glad I grabbed this guy early, he looks amazing.

No stickers, die-cast metal, tons of paint apps, rubber tires, articulated neck, this thing is nuts, and definitely fitting of the first carrier zord in the Legacy line. The paint apps are highly appreciated, it's meant to look screen accurate and it does, it's essentially a highly detailed re-made version of the Zyuranger King Brachion, but in a Power Rangers box.

It's a thing of beauty, I never had the full setup as a kid, but that's exactly why the Legacy line was made, to rake in the dollars of the now grown-up fan base that has money to burn. I've got Legacy Tigerzord on pre-oder and I can't wait for him, then hopefully they'll announce Legacy Red Dragon Zord, then the Legacy Thunderzords, then Legacy Tor, damn it's going to get expensive.

Received today the small but perfectly formed Wave 1:5000 SDF-1.

(Thanks again Shawn :))

Oooo very nice Old man!!

Wow, that is impressive! Die-cast parts always make things better. :)

Gorgeous. Nice buy :)

Thanks Falcon.

Oooo very nice Old man!

Thank you Saburo

Drool... Great pics, Old Man!

The VF-4G is still on my holy grail list. I need to wait for the end of the year dust to settle before I can budget for it, though.

Thanks technoblue. Mine was bought and paid for ages ago. Unfortunately I didn't read the NY preorder policy though so I had to wait until the RVF-171 was delivered. And I thought it was crazy money back then, can't believe how much they are asking now!

There's more pics on my Flickr page, I didn't post them all here as I didn't want to clutter this thread up with too many of my pics.
