    The option parts set for Heavyarms & Sandrock are parts to convert them from Kai to TV accurate. It's pretty subtle overall but it's worth getting imo.
    Whats this Kai did they redo the series? or is it an upgrade to the Gundam

    Kai refers to Katoki's redesigns, it's also called "Custom". I believe it came about because of recent manga which retells the Wing story. He redid the original TV Gundam's designs to match the EW movie designs. All of the recent Master Grade kits have been ver. Katoki/Kai designs. You can check those out for reference.

    Nope. I've tried them all. You're just going to have to keep hunting, or hope that BBTS gets an open PO spot. I'd say watch ebay and some of the other sites that get things second hand.

    So, are any of you guys into Yoroiden Samurai Troopers? I've always wanted to collect the Armor Plus figures but they are $$$. I preorder the Invocation version of Ryo that is coming out next month though. I figure if you're only going to have one he's the one to have. Seiji is my favorite but it looks like he's become the most elusive release.

    Yeah Ronin Warriors here. They've been making them for awhile now. The first version of Ryo, with the wildfire armor was made and actually imported here. I don't think it did that well since that was first and last time they were sold here. When the line gained a bit more steam Bandai did a "renewal" version of Ryo's wildfire armor so that it matched the other new figures. Just google Yoroiden Samurai Troopers Armor Plus. Be prepared for sticker shock though, they're all about double (or in Seiji's case almost triple) original retail value.

    Yeah it really is. If I had been in a position to collect them when they started making them I would have bought them all. The problem is getting figures like Seiji for a reasonable price. He's becoming like Omegamon, before too long I bet he'll be $350+. O.O

    I might sell a bunch of MOTUC so I can buy some Armor Plus figures though. I love Ronin Warriors and would love to get the full team.

    Okay. Triple post, but hopefully people will see this one.. lol.

    I got my D-Arts Metabee today, pretty sweet. I've got a new camera and don't have the settings worked out and was just taking test shows (with piss poor lightning). They'll do though.



    My Robot Damashii/Spirits collection so far (barring what's in the mail/pre-ordered):



    I have to say. Out of all of the Gundam figures I've bought so far, the two Seed figures are the best overall. I'm guessing the Perfect Strike, which is pretty new, is a bit better fit/finish than the first version, but I know the mold/colors are the same.

    The Tallgeese is the low point for me so far. It's a great figure, and one of my all-time favorite MS, but I think the head could have been a bit better executed. I'm guessing Bandai was aiming for something very animated looking, and in that regard it's very clean and successful. I just think a bit more detail, mainly in the face guard, would have been nice. It's a minor complaint though, and really, in a line full of exceptional figures, it's still exceptional. lol. I'd jump on an EW version if they did one. Especially with the extra weapons from the Manga.
