    I see Baba has received my shipment from the warehouse. Your $600 VIP invoice is on its way. Time for you to level up, Divine.

    If he gets both copies at 6 bills each, that leaves him only $93 898.54 away from double gold crown V-VIP!

    Can we just stop a second and notice that Baba's incoming stock is in TF Source boxes?

    That's a pretty good idea. You should definitely post pics when it's done so we can see how it turned out

    so finally got a change to handle mine. in hand, there is no question the acoustic wave feels WAY better. I do think the takara still LOOKs better (to me)in a lot of ways too but i knew that going in. i did have some minor paint blemish issue ironically right near the QC sticker but its minor and not worth the hassle of trying to resolve it for me. i'm think both retailer and FT would be like "yeah thats not really an issue" most likely haha.

    anyway handling this thing and posing it feels great. also i can't believe some reveiwer (forget who?) couldn't tell the blue was paint. its pretty obvious. for now its going back in its box until I have a place for it to display. did not regret the money spent on it so far.

    Picked mine up on the weekend from KoolToyz, and was just able to go through the transformation - I love the heft and solidity. I'm torn between this and MP-02 though, since my collection leans heavily towards toy decos. I feel like if the RP-01 was a deeper blue and the pearlescent forearms/thighs/face shield weren't as "bright" it would be an easier decision, but I do appreciate the swappable accessories to get closer to the toy deco.

    While i love the figure, i don't find it miles better than mp13 the cassette especially not. Other than the metal, it's got bad proportions with slumped shoulders. But the change from toy to cartoon look is brilliant. I do see the alt mode buttons piece breaking on a lot of them later on though.

    Overall, he's great, but if i didn't get him for free, i might have been disappointed in it as an upgrade

    BBTS usually gets it really late. If Baba just got some of his allotment, then BBTS will be a while.

    Black Friday prices on Monday???!! Order quick!!
