    Yeah actually I remember a week or 2 ago I got an email saying my SoC F.A. combattler V got delayed with no new date mentioned. I don't mind since it's gonna be in my hands sooner or later if anything I just hope everyone is just healthy and taking care of themselves.

    HLJ is listing May for the FA Combattler V as I mentioned in the SoC thread a lil' bit ago. And, yeah. It'll come when it comes. Mildly frustrating, but kind of understandable when something this awful and wide-spread has happened. It was inevitable that there were going to be delays.

    a Metal Robot order I had for end of february is now end of march. Hmm... seems like delays across the board. Possibly due to production in China?

    Bluefin just sent an email about P-Bandai USA. So does that mean by April 2, TWE will now be available on the website?

    Last week I picked my MB Laevatein to play with...only to discover that the legs are now so loose that he has trouble standing. I put him in a kneeling pose with the demolition gun, and now I hope the MB Great Mazinger will last more time.

    Hello there. I was thinking about buying my first metal gundam, but I didn't quite understand - the difference between a metal composite and a metal build is only in their scale? And a metal robot?
    Is Bandai's metal really of high quality?
    Thanks.

    I had to stick super glue deep into the knees of my arbalest, so the laevetein will most likely work too.

    Here are some previous responses about this question:

    Basically, the main difference is in the artistic design.

    I have never seen a test or metallurgy results on what Bandai uses but these are some of the highest quality figures made by any toy company.
