    I'm surprised Trideron was an exclusive and Rideron wasn't. Though I guess Black RX is super popular?

    Ooooh. He looks great!

    I'm surprised that he hasn't shown up yet. It says that he's been out for delivery since this morning on Japan Post.

    So since Bandai put out a black and gold IM Mark 6, is there any chance of them doing the same with one or both of the new armors?

    How about a red Hulk?

    Huh. So the USPS guy didn't even knock on my door or ring the buzzer and one of the "Delivery Failure" notices. I drive to the post office, waited in line for 20 minutes and they tell me that I can't pick it up until tomorrow.

    Lazy. Incompetent. Motherfuckers. Thanks, office. You made me break my "no swearing" rule.

    Well I'll be! While that does look nice, I just picked up the Marvel Now ML for essentially that role.

    That's how it's always been. The driver doesn't return to the hub until close to closing time and remaining packages aren't removed and sorted until after closing. You're almost never able to pick up packages from the post office on a day where delivery was attempted.

    They didn't even attempt to deliver it. No knock. Didn't even press the button to buzz on the intercom.

    Lazy people that can't even do their jobs.

    Even then Mach Jabber and Roboizer were exclusives and they were half the price.

    Rideron vs Trideron I can understand though, Trideron has electronics and lights and all sorts of gimmicks to justify it's pricetag which in turn means it's not gonna experience enough turnover to justify a general release - while Rideron is just a big hunk of plastic. Rideron vs. Acrobatter's alternate forms, not so much.

    I'm begrudgingly getting two. The cost is really at the edge of what i'd be willing to do that for though. Like I said before, 2 of these cost more than a HT figure.

    so like a little kid who gets caught lying and wont admit it, Amazon is still saying that my Figuarts Ultimate Gohan, God Goku and Mario Playset D will be "Arriving tomorrow by 8pm" haha

    I'm sure once tomorrow hits it will update to
    "Delivery estimate: We need a little more time to provide you with a good estimate. We'll notify you via e-mail as soon as we have an estimated delivery date."

    Seeing as how Gohan doesn't come out in Japan until this month and Goku is not until Oct, yeah, that isn't going to happen. Mine say the same thing.

    How does lugging a package all the way to your door, filling out a delivery slip while carrying/juggling the package and sticking it on your door, lugging your package all the way back to his/her truck, stowing the package in the truck, then having to come back the next day to do it all over again lazier than lugging a package to your door and knocking?

    Yeah, it's gorgeous, but I can only see completionists and die-hard Marvel/Iron Man fans owning it.

    The Marvel Legends version of the Marvel Now suit looks pretty solid and seems like it'd scale nicely with the SHF stuff.

    Must be real hard to hold a tiny box and knock on the door/ring the buzzer, especially when the guy is at home.

    And why would they try to deliver it again the next day? After the first "attempt", the post office holds it for a few days for you to pick up.
