    I'm not trying to be funny but if I was in a situation to where I was spending 100s of dollars on items that deteriorated due to the conditions of my home there'd be either a change to the environment or no longer spending 100s said items with no in between. To each their own but that's not for me.

    'Permanence' is far from the most important quality in a toy's appeal. Hell, as a customizer I buy *everything* in the understanding it's liable to end up as half-destroyed trash.

    This is a super-reasonable approach.

    Just to make sure I'm clear, I'm not saying that I buy a toy and one year later it's a puddle of goo on the shelf; we're really talking about a decade or two. On that time scale, I feel like the cost-to-joy ratio starts to be more reasonable (and, in all honesty, I'm extremely privileged to have a job that allows for some disposable income, which is frankly the pivotal element here).

    Yeah, that's the winning option. I'll be taking this path shortly.

    Just noticed MasterMade is reissuing their Trypiticon. Any idea of this guy will be too? Apollo was released before I started my Legends collection, and I much prefer it to the MFT Omega.. but he's rare and pricey on ebay and requires the bust to get the nice small head, whereas I see the Trypicon reissue is already quite a bit less pricey than the original was.

    Has the Diabolus Rex reissue shown up anywhere other than RobotToyKingdom? I haven't found it elsewhere.

    Only TF Express, that I know of, who I like quite a lot.

    Hey Guys! I got my APOLLO TODAY!
    but when I press on the spring loaded feature, it doesn't pop up, am I doing something wrong?
