Gold: Wow --- Bandai Macross Museum!!! - http://www.taghobby.com/1-0/1-3/2015%e5%b9%b42%e6%9c%886%e6%97%a5-25%e6%97%a5-macross-the-museum-ver-2-0-%e6%b6%89%e8%b0%b7parco-museum-%e5%b1%95%e5%93%81/ Feb 23, 2015 13:43:01 GMT 8
lastmaximal: Hook's elbows scare me, yes. But I have to keep reminding myself that these are Voyagerish in size, so the joint might not be as toothpick-sized in person. Feb 22, 2015 13:20:24 GMT 8
Weirdwolf72: The elbow joints on Hook, now that's a concern as it makes it look fragile. At least in the preliminary pics. Feb 21, 2015 11:51:12 GMT 8
Weirdwolf72: The designers took that into account in a recent interview. Since his two arms are literally carrying the whole package (as Mixmaster's cad is stable enough) it a decent sacrifice in Scrapper's design. Feb 21, 2015 11:50:43 GMT 8
Gold: Nope, Long Haul's elbowless too... Kinda. But I see your point about Scrapper. Also, at the sheer size and price, it does have the 3P versions beat though. Feb 17, 2015 1:44:57 GMT 8 *
lastmaximal: (I think it was a stability concern.) Feb 16, 2015 17:29:55 GMT 8
lastmaximal: - just Scrapper. Feb 16, 2015 17:28:42 GMT 8
Gold: Lack of some primary joints like ELBOWs on the individual Constructicons is a bit disappointing Feb 15, 2015 23:19:15 GMT 8
arnie001: CW UM just render other 3P ver. obsolete...just my opinion. Feb 15, 2015 10:40:43 GMT 8
arnie001: ...and they included Minimus too...really a great TF year ahead! Feb 15, 2015 10:15:48 GMT 8
castortroy: Yup. That UM finally... Feb 15, 2015 9:41:29 GMT 8
arnie001: Hasbro reveals more of combiner wars...and it gets better and better! Feb 15, 2015 7:08:44 GMT 8
Gold: Egads! Batman The Animated Series 2-seater Batmobile for 6" scale !!! http://toynewsi.com/news.php?catid=10&itemid=24211 Feb 13, 2015 1:54:42 GMT 8
Gold: I'm more worried about how Playkit is deciding how to proceed with TF figures, a LOT of the Generations deluxes seem to be clogging shelves at the moment IMHO. Feb 13, 2015 1:53:25 GMT 8
Weirdwolf72: Patience is indeed a virtue. Even in ebay, waaaaaaay back in August ebay scalpers were selling Arcee at prices the total cost of the 3 Tomy fembots. Feb 12, 2015 22:57:09 GMT 8
Weirdwolf72: Price of the Tomy (including shipping and taxes is just about the same)fembots. As for the domestic Hasbro version, do we need to wait another 6 months like Jetfire (when the Tomy version has already been released)? Feb 12, 2015 22:55:56 GMT 8
Gold: other GH shops is cheaper than buying at the malls now (some stuff but not all). But yeah, inventory is shallow, can't blame em though, look at the amount of stuff coming out now vs what it was 7 years ago. ;) Feb 12, 2015 21:17:03 GMT 8 *
Gold: For the Fembots, GT has the Hasbro versions at 1000 for those who can't wait. , nah, mass market distributors are ironically driving some of the prices up (look at their prices of ML/DCUC/Gundams). Buying some of the stuff from shops like GT and Feb 12, 2015 21:13:55 GMT 8
Gold: Thanks Majingaa, glad to hear someone still follows that thread. :D Feb 12, 2015 21:12:03 GMT 8
zephon: Now that you've mentioned it,Yes,1)Prices seem too high. 2)Inventory seems shallow.Which leads me to think 1)If you don't pre-order,you don't get your toy 2)are mass market distributors (Playkit, Bankee) giving specialty stores a run for their money? Feb 12, 2015 7:38:30 GMT 8
