    I've wanted these for a while. But Mr. Batshit Insane made it so difficult for so long I kinda stopped bothering. But then these came along in a package deal:

    They're not actually Darkwing and Dreadwind, they're Hydra and Buster, but whatever. Same thing to me.

    And they're mint. And I mean just about perfect--some stress marks on Darkwing's Powermaster Throttle (or technically Hydra), and that's all I can find. Even come with unapplied sticker sheets, instructions, and tech spec decoders.

    Anyways, I'm freakin' thrilled. I'm probably gonna be an MIB / MISB collector from now for the older stuff, unless it's a buyer I really trust to be honest when he says C9+. This is just easier than taking chances.

    So anyways, I love these guys and it really makes my week, which has been a pain in the ass thanks to finals.

    EDIT: Oh, and yeah, that's my wife being obnoxious, in what's probably the most hideous photo that's ever been taken of her. She's not actually licking the dog, just looks that. I'm posting it 'cause she kept jibber-jabbering about something or another while I was trying to enjoy my new toys.

    Nice! I've always liked the looks of Hydra and Buster. I still need to replace the craptacular Darkwing and Dreadwind that I got on ebay five years ago that came without fists and accessories, even when the seller said they did :redface2:  Jackass.

    Anyway, congrats!

    He started slowing down in either late '05 / early '06, can't remember exactly, and as far as I can tell, he was basically done by mid- to late-'06.

    I still, for the life of me, do not understand what the fuck he was doing.

    The question is, is it because of the lady in the pic, or the pic of the lady and the dog?

    Congrats man!

    Actually, I meant to give you props in the OP, but got excited.

    TO ALL: Malach Ra is the eBay master. Not only did he enable me to buy with confidence by reassuring me the buyer was legit, he gave me some solid advice that helped me save almost $70.

    So, yeah, I definitely appreciate the guidance, man! :thumb

    She's gave me a glare for posting. This'll get me some points back. Thanks, doc!
    I know I did. No answer. But I don't know anyone who ever sold him one. Could be they'd have another perspective.
