    Maybe, it depends on weather it's easy to reattach.

    I finally have wave 1 complete.

    Crimson Typhoon's my favourite in terms of design & toy.
    Gipsy Danger is definetely great too. His design really began to
    grow on me, in contrast to people who think he's generic looking.
    In fact, Gipsy Danger's got this unique naval warship / airforce jet panel style
    going on, which really sets him apart from most typical anime mechs - despite his 'generic' humanoid American football player proportions.
    Knife Head's pretty good too thanks to his sculpt, but he simply lacks
    articulation.
    I'm anxious to get Cherno Alpha in wave 3. Personally, I'm not a fan of
    the Striker Eureka design ; not that I think it's bad, but imo he's very similar
    to a lot of contemporary Japanese anime mecha.

    I've seen some people rag on these figures, but imo, it's clear to me they
    rated them to 100 dollar collectibles standards, despite rationally being aware these are just good value movie merchandise.

    My 7" gipsy danger just came in stock at BBTS. Not sure I'm gonna keep it, or get the rest of the wave, but figured I should snag one at retail price while I still could. Really just waiting for that beautiful 18" version.

    I'm excited they're doing Knifehead and I'm hoping they'll do Cherno Alpha in 18inch.

    I'm skeptical if they'll do anything past Knifehead, though a Eureka seems like a no brainer. Don't know if I would get him though. Only wanna pair Jaegers with Kaiju, and I doubt they'll do another Kaiju in 18" scale.

    Damn that's a nice custom, but $1,500 for it? That's nuts! I really hope that the $200 thing is just temporary, that's also insane.

    I think the $1500 price has a lot to do with the special olympics part. Without that I couldn't imagine it going higher than $300.

    I wonder what the original bidder that thought $10 was a good bid felt like watching any hope he had of ever getting that thing disappear in a sea of exponential bids.

    Keep an eye on BBTS. People have been dropping preorders regularly over the last week.

    So it's not so much battle damaged as it is just dirty.
