Venom was sick. I just picked up Revoltech Carnage and haven't had much time to stick all those tentacles (there's ALOT!!) for some extreme posing. Takes a little getting used to since the torso is a solid piece without the usual Revoltech ratchet joint.

I also just picked up the SH Figuarts Starlord today. I accidentally bought the Guardians of the Galaxy edition when I really had the Infinity War Starlord in mind.
Man I saw the carnage on display and it had a crapload of tentacles. Looked amazing. I think I'm going to try to get Spidey and Carnage now.

Prices in Japan are good, but after tax free it's even better. My suitcase is not big enough!
Baaaaaaaaa!

The only figure from the Amecomi line is Spider Gwen. Didn't buy her due to unfamiliarity to the character. And Batman looks sick!

Anyone getting those Hot Toys Toy Fair exclusives? That T'Chaka is a must buy for me. I might buy directly from Sideshow for the first time and ship to CBI.
Baaaaaaaaa!

I like that neon light iron man but hot toys for me this year. Still recuperating from Hulkbuster. It's 1:12 scale for now. Got the sh figuarts Ironman mk50 incoming at the moment. Their Thanos figure looks magnificent.

I missed out on Iron Spider but as soon as I saw the mafex version, I'm glad I skipped out. Thanos is surprisingly better articulated than the shf age of ultron Hulk and I liked the extra articulation on Thanos' left hand. Kinda regret buying their Captain America though. No shield.

so disappointed that the mark 4 neon isn't being sold at ss!!

You guys pre-order any of the other 3 figures? I am getting the Cap, already getting the regular anakin so i don't see the point in getting the exclusive.

Trying to get the mark 5 diecast but still waitlisted

I heard it is being sold at sideshow but the problem is you have to pick it up at sdcc, just as it was last year. I have no plans to buy any Hot Toys this year but I picked up the sh figuarts Ironman mk50 this morning and it looks pretty sick.

I've been trying to decide if I should get this guy, my Maximals need Megs to face off against. But man, that price tag on it! Amiami has it under 30000 yen right now but it's still going to be about 400 bucks after shipping and taxes.
Baaaaaaaaa!

Anime-Export has it for even cheaper but I don't know if I trust them.

Based on current exchange rates, amiami's price puts it below $315 CDN. Add in freight (SAL registered), it'll be about $350 CDN.

My friend uses amiami alot and he says he gets hit with taxes too. I would expect Megs to be about 400 after taxes? As much as I would LOVE to get it, my Hot Toys collection is draining most of my money allocated for toys. :(

Depends on the method of shipping. EMS? Absolutely. SAL? I've never experienced taxes on that.

Oh no taxes on SAL? Nice thanks for the heads up. How does SAL compare to EMS in terms of cost and speed?
Baaaaaaaaa!
