    Yeah that’s $815 after tax for me. May end up being the best price…

    That would be decent price if they didn't started charging tax. Damn Cali. Also, don't like paying upfront for something that's 5 months away.

    Have one on PO at AMJ and Amiami. Will likely cancel the AMJ PO if the price doesn't come down. Waiting on Toydojo and TCP to see what their prices are.

    Be prepared for a wait on AJ for a price drop. Just got a price decline like a week ago on my PO for GX-96.

    Yea, I know AMJ don't do price adjustments after it ships out. But if the price drops between now and ship date, it'll get adjusted. If the price doesn't drop before the cancellation deadline I am going to drop it.

    I need to think very hard on GX-100 because I have no space to display it...store it yes, but display no...sadly all my SOC from GX-1 etc are all at my folks' house in their boxes. I didn't even open up some of the figures.

    Wow...may I know :

    i) which company produced that large "Panzer World Galient" figure? The one 2 shelves below that vinyl Gaiking?!

    ii) What is that Spirit on your desk?!

    You're too nice dude. At the most I would have given them until the last week before filing a claim. I learnt the hard way in my country that there is no such concept such as "loyalty to customers" anymore.

    Well the Galient is WAVE WHAM! from years ago @Kuma Style turned me on to it. I think it was a grail for him. He has a great review. It’s a great figure.

    The Spirit is my custom. He’s one of my favorite Joes. He just kind of lives on my desk. Spirit is just awesome.

    Thanks for the info on Galient! The figure look sick! Really dig that Spirit too - looks like the best version of the character! I’m really drooling over your “office” display! I only wished I had that among of space...

    I finished my basement. You can insert a great many jokes about a toy collector living and working out of his basement.

    It cost me 28k just to finish the basement. It’s the only way I’d have the space.

    I wish I had a basement to finish for my collections/hobbies. If I ever built a house I would so have one built for just that purpose rather than repurposing a bedroom.

    I’ve got a nice finished basement with lots of room for collectibles. It currently has a mother-in-law living in it so…repurposed bedroom for me. Which is also my daughters’ play room…which is also currently my office. Most of my stuff is ‘displayed’ in storage closets. :lol

    I love when I open shit and leave it all over the entertainment room and my conversation with my wife goes like this...

    ”You have a whole floor of the house!”

    That’s why I envy you man! There’s no way, I can afford a house with a basement in Singapore…because it would mean I can’t continue my hobby…

    My bloody condo doesn’t even have that amount of space…I really envy you guys in the west…
