    First order of business:

    HLJ has the Mega House Perfect Piece Tachikoma on sale for ~$42! This is a steal. I ordered one over a year ago for a little less than twice that, so if you want an amazing, near perfect rendition of the tachis with tons of accessories, get it while you can. I just ordered a second one. Here's a gallery.

    I was going to wait for the larger scale, diecast tachikoma that was supposed to come out with the 31/2" Kusenagi. Do you know if that is still coming out?

    Wow, that's pretty awesome. Not a huge fan of the franchise, but the mech is amazing in its detail and design.

    What a great price. It seems to be the better choice compared to the Goodsmile and Wave Tachikoma's.

    I'm also interested in the Yamato 1/7th scale Motoko. I'll have to wait for reviews first.

    It is such a good figure. A steal at this price.

    Ugh, why couldn't they have her in her good costume?

    I agree. I just don't particularly like the lingerie uniform she wears. The tactical suits are so much cooler, and she still retains her sexiness. Otherwise it would be a sure buy.

    I'm with pinoy78 as far as waiting for a review. For the price, it should be an extraordinary poseable figure but besides Yamato's usual great paint apps, it just doesn't look like it to me so far.

    That RAH figure would be cooler if it came with the coat she wore with that outfit.

    I totally agree, the trench coat would be bad-a.

    I just hope and pray that this is a sign of things to come. I want a 1/6 Batou bad. And of course the rest of Section 9.

    Thanks for the heads up on the sale! I put an order in. I had ordered the Wave 1/24 scale version months ago from BBTS, but that still hasn't come in there, so I'll cancel that order and go with this version. It looks better overall, especially with the articulation and extras. I only ordered the other version because of the scale being in line with Alts.

    Yeah, this is 1/20 scale, so its a little bigger.

    Since Batou never gets no love, I grabbed this one. Not posable, but still looks good, and inexpensive, too. Made by Sega.

    The good smile Tachikoma has been "coming out" for nearly half a year now, hasn't it?

    The thing looks great, but for the longest time it's seemed like nothing more than vaporware. Is it seriously coming out soon?

    I guess we'll see. It's not like I can afford it now anyway. That little major does look good though. Either way, I really like the Perfect Piece one; that should keep me happy for a while.

    yeah, looks good. I feel like I should only get one, but it's tough deciding which one to get. It's like the whole Ride Armor fiasco from a few months ago all over again.
