So your going to rip gipsy's arm off just for that scene?
Maybe, it depends on weather it's easy to reattach.
BBTS, gimme a preorder. I need this.
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
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.
Sweet Jesus I need this and Gipsy in my life! Fuck Metroplex this is where my money is going!
Are you guys following this auction?
Crazy stuff. Awesome stuff and very cool proceeds go to charity.
Also, amiami has up a preorder for the 18" knifehead for over $200. Hopefully that's an early order mistake and when BBTS puts them up they will be closer to the 18" gipsy price.

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.
NECAs twitter posted a few hours ago that we might see pictures of Battle Damage GD today. Keep your eyes peeled.
Indeed. The high price is likley for the charity.
Does anybody know if that 18" Gipsy is available anywhere else besides BBTS? B/c its completely sold out, been for a while
Thx. Preorder Sold out there too.
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.
