    Yea they did, the tabs rely on friction alone. On the Yamato/Arcadia valkyries, there’s clips that hold the arms/legs in place so they’re more secure, even with armor on(the tabs on the back that connect behind the lower legs have a sideways extension that also acts as a clip).

    I'm with you. It doesn't bother me. I don't swoosh my stuff. I set it up, put it on a stand, and look at it. Would I like it to be better. Yes. does it affect my ownership experience? Not at all.

    Is there a way to get notifications from mainframe like eBay does? I'm not too familiar with that site.

    Yes. Do a search. At the top of the results you can choose to save that search and have it email you once a day when things that match come up.

    And this might seem obvious, but to add to Sqidd's comment, you need to sign up at Mandarake first, then those things are available. ;)

    I guess so... I figured the 30th Anniversary Skull 1 YF-29 would be the more rare one. I might have to get that one if I cant get a Ozma 29 for a better price.

    Both of the options below are still available/taking orders. I think Luna Park comes out to a little less if you use the NEWCUSTOMER code (assuming it still works).

    It may be more rare (not sure but probably) but the anniversary decos are usually not as demanded.

    I love all the stamps on the box.

    @Kuma Style Love the bro fist bump photo. Seems something that they would do if Macross was done today.

    You better save those stamps @OmegaTaco Supreme! I kept my set from Saviant when I got the Arcadia non-PF VF-1J Milia. ;)

    fist bump / high five in Gundam 0083, one of my favorite mecha-as-mecha-not-super-robots series:

    @OmegaTaco Supreme have you opened it? Fingers crossed the hips are in good shape for you. Really great figure.
