The bosses are POing also.

That's very true. I'm a boss and I participate in PO Madness. I'd much rather not do that during the middle of the night. Happy to knock off a bit early and fire up my browser at 4pm local time instead of 4pm Japan time.

There really isn't a PO madness in the US for regular Bandai releases through retailers. They go up on random times so you're not camping in front of the computer waiting for 4PM, 12 midnight, or 3AM. Stores just announce on their social media it's up and access is not bogged down like Amiami. PO is much smoother here. Get in, get out, 5 minutes tops.

There’s no “Where’s the Stop Button” @f-valk unless you are buried six feet below ground level literally and physically. 
 

That is when you stop collecting unless your buried with valks surrounding your body and it carries into the afterlife.

Wrong.
 

You make more room by renting space, buying storage, adding on to your property and buying bigger property.

But that’s cheating , if you have unlimited storage space you will not stop . 😜

Heh.. funny you should mention the space conundrum.  I'm currently trying to organize my second bedroom to function as a "hobby" room, which means all (ok, most) of the lego, model kit, and Macross stuff is planned to go in there, along with a small desk and my 3D printer.. but holy cow I have so many boxes, I really should start prioritizing which things I don't absolutely need to keep.

Yeah, I’m quickly getting to the point where it’ll be time to put my doubles up for sale…

Well, maybe not the extra 31As…

Yeah, there are certain favorites that I've collected multiples of that I have no intention of selling off.  My VF-19s are staying. :p  (Though, I might part with an Arcadia YF-19 once I get the PF version.)

But with all the new 1/48 VF-1s?  I don't feel the need to keep so many of my old Yamatos.  I bought up some of the early Arcadia re-releases with the stands, but I really don't have a reason to keep those around now.  I'll probably boil my Yamato VF-1 collection down to the essentials, and sell off a few duplicates I've been holding onto, like the extra M&M Arcadia set I got, which I have no reason to keep after getting the PF versions.

Even beyond that, I've got a few duplicates of the Bandai DX VF-1s that were bought as backups during all of the pre-order shenaniganry, and I could probably send them to a good home, and the multiple re-releases of the Hayate VF-31 means I could probably part with one of those easily.  Not to mention the pile of extra HMR releases I grabbed for.. some reason I can't even grasp now. :lol:

When you start questioning the rationale for having duplicates, it's just fueling the drive for me to catch up. :cray::fool:

Fixed it

Scalpers prosper because of dummies like me. I may be looking for the cheapest deal,  but I am still paying scalper prices. Once you fall (back) into that collecting rabbit hole...

 

Getting Yamato 1/48s was less cutthroat on secondary market even when it was several years after release. Vendors based out of HK would still post as auctions on evilbay. Shame that Yamato company went under.

The only Bandai dxs listed on eBay i see by Japan based vendors are mostly buy it now but with head scratching mark ups. 

I never understood why they post listings at double msrp. No one would buy them,  so why list at that price. 

Make more valks available, or do re runs please,  Bandai.  :5:

Buy on Yahoo Japan through a proxy and ship surface.  Automatically going to save you $50-100.

One could argue that they're connected.

Used Dx tv max, in case anyone else is looking. 

I couldn't find a stand- alone thread for Dx vf-1a so I posted here. (Sorry, Mods.  please move to correct thread).


you can post it on the other section, there’s one for mandarake listings

Anyone take their GBP Takani fists and put them on a non-armored valk and recreate the 'hands a bit mis-scaled' old 1/100 Arii kits/toys?
If so I missed it-point the way (my box is tucked away already)

Possibly during the Tamashii Nations show in a few weeks we might get another answer, however Bandai loves to screw us collectors around just like Hot Toys [One tease of a possible release will get people revved up. X amount of months/years later, it never gets made and suddenly there is a woke mob banging on your doorstep 24/7, 52 weeks every bloody year, day in and day out].
