    Only $300? That seems like an absolute bargain to be honest. It looks really well made and super realistic.

    Yeh back when I put the pre-order in it was $270 USD shipped. This was April 2020. Still haven't go it though. Production got super delayed and their order numbers sky rocketed after the first batch came out.

    Oooo nice! These are the ones I got. I got a couple of the model kits too, but they're so damn flimsy when they transform I only built 1 and the others are still in their box lol. These are the chogokin ones. The Macross SDF-1 and Macross Frontier can both transform too. But I think they look better in fortress mode.

    Wow that SDF-1 is sweet. At the moment the only thing I have out of the box is my Roy Focker VF-1S - she's a thing of beauty.

    First reviews are out, the box is enormous! No wonder the shipping was expensive.

    So question .. besides ebay, are there any recommended local suppliers for a classic Star Wars stormtrooper? I'm trying to source one for someone, and I know theres a tonne of smaller local sellers that do hot toys but trying to find them is .. tricky.

    I haven't bought any new figs for a while since I got my new place. I am waiting for bigbadtoystore.com to charge me and ship my 1:6 scale R6 siege figure.

    Hehe I did some online shopping of my own too. I ordered Rodam RAS-30/RAS-30L which is a 3rd party Gundam GP03 + Dendrobium at PG scale. So it's about 1.4m long. :D It's a model kit. Don't know when I'll ever build it tho hahhaha

    My 3rd party Alita head with rooted hair arrived. It's not super accurate to the movie version but I really like it because it really remind me of the original manga version. But the neck peg initially had a fitting issue, where it simply doesn't fit. It's completely loose in the socket. So I had to make my own. Fixed it with some 3D printing and metal rod for reinforcement.

    From right to left, the original one is the right. The bottom part is too small and too short. So I remade it with a bigger ball. However it's too short. Then I added some extra length and it worked perfectly. :D Love 3D printing.

    I really need a resin printer, would love to be able to start printing off my own statues..

    Speaking of which - email notification that my Hot Toys Darth Vader is on his way to me.. assuming he doesn't get stuck in transit somewhere..
