    Every time I look at the vintage listings for BBTS I end up buying something I wasn't planning on. Today I got sucked into TRNS-01 - Valkyrie. I had no interest in this item when it was first announced at $70+. The reviews were lackluster with a common thread of not worth it, but at more then half price I thought I would take the risk.

    What do you guys think?

    also there is one more one there

    I got it when it came out, and after much effort ended up trading it away. Personally i thought it looked/felt like some free toy from a cereal box with some model paint sloppily applied. The box was nice tho...

    They had a ton of these listed a few weeks back. For $30, I took the chance at one that didn't have anythig wrong with it, or at least one that didn't have any listed defects. I saw the two this morning and saw they both had glue issues. I'd just be careful with it regardless.

    a fellow board member bought one of those and when he got it the backpack piece was snapped. so, the head and chest won't stay on. but i love their vintage section.

    I've read over and over again that the toy's a piece of shit, but, at $30, it's worth rolling the dice, ya' know?

    Yeah but BBTS offered him a full refund so i'm not too worried about. Was just wondering if the figure is worth $30 when in good working order

    i would have said good deal from the title of this thread if you were talking about a macross valkyrie and a larger scale one at that.
