    My submission for a dark cathode mega grappler before DA82 gets released.

    The early Waruder sets doesn’t look as threatening compared to the Diaclone forces due to the small bodies and short legs. Am looking forward to the dark ripper body and legs to “upgrade” his threat level. C429C6C6-CA07-4DFC-952E-ED37316F98A2.jpeg

    Quickly put something together with Ripper parts

    FINALLY!!!!

    On 10/28 I received notice that BBTS would process my Extra Pod and 1x DA-70 "soon." They didn't mention my 2nd DA-70 but I had added that afterwards. Skip ahead 4 weeks later and here we are! All 3 items processed yesterday and are prepping to ship!

    It took a min but BBTS finally came through. It will probably be another 2-3 months before I see my DA-80 & DA-81 but this should tide me over til then.

    Hot Diggity! Just checked, my DA-70 and Grander Pod dropped as well! Going to give it a day to see if my DA-22 drops too. Also ordered DA-24 and DA-41 from A3U on Sunday. Though, given the state of British Columbia right now I’m not expecting that order for a bit.

    Edit: Shut my mouth, should have my A3U order by Thursday!

    DA-71, DA-72, DA-75, and DA-76 have all come in today. I'd hold a funeral for my wallet but I can't afford one.

    Edit: the POL, as a whole, has 71, 72, 74, 75, 76, and 77, so that's going to be a lot to unpack.

    DA-70 and the Extra Pod Grander arrived at BBTS for me. Been a long wait on those 2.

    On mine it doesn’t fall out or anything, but it is a bit loose for sure. The normal spikes (as on the original Gigantor) is just fine though.

    Also congrats on everyone getting so many new additions in! Lots of good stuff in those numbers.

    I had a similar experience. RIP wallet. The Bandai madness over the last few days hasn’t helped either (MB Eva 00 and Macross stuff)

    Good shout, true Gamma does sound like it's a powered up version of the existing mech.

    Hi @TogeAtama

    Been meaning to ask you about a hashtag in JP twitter

    #DIA1GP2021AU by https://twitter.com/dia1_gpx

    Do you know how the race is being held? Throw of dice?
    How is the capability of any vehicle is set?

    Thanks :)

    Seems like dice rolls. It also sounds like any machine or combination has the same speed/performance for the sake of the race. They also do some interesting stuff with having part of the course being under water (resulting in fewer dice rolls).

    That said, I’m not sure how they managed the dice rolls (if one person is rolling for everyone or what)… they do a lot of interesting competitions on Twitter but some can get really complicated and I’m not on Twitter myself so this is just from a quick glance. Hope it helps though!

    Thanks! I’m glad I was able to pick them at a rather affordable price. The worse part is the waiting part for the POs and the import stores to get back to me.

    Now that is a nice build. A few of those on the battle field with mounted beam weapons would look nice.
