    I need a Cherno and a Coyote...

    The problem is, that Battle Damaged Gipsy in wave 2 will probably slow down sales. The only reason it will be bought is for the swords, and if you already have a Gipsy, there's really no reason to buy it.

    I'm excited. I found Knifehead and Crimson Typhoon in stock on Thinkgeek the other day, so I ordered them. I don't need Gypsy because Ive got series 2 on preorder from BBTS. Now I'm just hoping for a Coyote Tango and Otachi.

    Try to gently wiggle the arm loose. Mine was glued too, but I managed to get the arm loose from the glue and now the front arm works just like the rear arm.

    The leg joints... I'm not sure how loose yours are... but mine are slightly loose.. so I have him in a dynamic pose which has one leg collapsed, then the other can pose in extended mode without much danger of collapsing. Otherwise, nailpolish or Future will help.

    Did anyone get an email from BBTS regarding 18" Gypsy Danger? A guy on another board said he got an email saying they expect him in 1-2 weeks, but I didn't get it. Wondering if anyone else did.

    Just thought I'd get the word out that these guys are available for online order at Gamestop now with some other NECA stuff. They are a little bit pricier though, but not as much as on Amazon.

    No, so far all they have are the Wave one 7 inch figures and that's it. But I'd rather pay the $19.99 there than the $35-50 on Amazon.

    Do you guys think we'll be able to find the 18inch Gipsy at retail?

    Probably at comic and specialty toy/collectible shops. At Toys R Us? I'll be surprised if each location gets in a single case. I've only ever seen one of the 18" scale NECA toys there.

    I wish Bluefin or somebody would at least hint, confirm or deny any kind of Monsterarts/SRC form of toyline for this franchise. But, I guess them being tight lipped is usually a good sign there's something going on.

    They held a poll after SDCC and Pacific Rim was on the list of options for what people wanted to see figures of next. I think they would fit right at home with Monsterarts.

    Stumbled across these pics last night, anyone recognize these joints? I'm desperately wanting some Jaeger figures but the fact they seem to pretty much be Neca at their worst articulation wise has been putting me off.

    Alright, now they've convinced me to get the 18inch Gipsy. Now I can re-enact the first major fight sequence!
