    You got it! Thought as a continuation of Glenn's reporting of amazing Mandarake dumps from last week (a few posts back). Though a few more reasonably priced ones dropped after I posted, rendering the complete Secret Base dump slightly less "mad" price-wise. Hoping you and fellow board members scored some wants and for the chance to get a better look at some of them here sometime soon :)

    I placed an order... we’ll see if I get lucky if the confirmation order shows up in the next couple days.

    I thought once you click order it automatically marks as sold out - making it impossible for others to cart it? Pretty sure it's yours and the wait a mere formality, or so I hope at least. Looking forward to see what you picked up.

    there is still a chance it it physically in a storefront and could be sold in person. I’ve had it happen once or twice. But usually if you get it online it’s yours. Like 95% of the time.

    @hellopike This Astro Brain is SO striking in hand! The deep, metallic magenta sprays are so vibrant. Now I just gotta find me the matte black blank Astro Brain!!!

    Great shot @xSuicide Squadx. That Gargamess is the only Garamel fighter I have that is still bagged.

    @wingnut0 Thanks! I’m always amazed when these older toys are still bagged and headered!!! Pretty awesome you’ve kept yours bagged, and I can see why. I contemplated the same for a bit, but because of the murkiness of the bag I felt it’d serve better to be opened and displayed. Plus, I couldn’t wait to shoot it. Only fight figure I still have bagged and headered is the first painted Skull Brain.

    Which Skullbrain is that exactly? I never thought about it and I don’t know offhand. It’s probably in the Mook, but my copy resides at my spray booth for inspiration.

    I’m sort of ashamed to say that I’ve accumulated about half a dozen fighters that are still bagged, and just grabbed an old Gargamess from Mandarake this morning. Typically I’d open them, but some are special and some are just older now and I can’t bring myself to open them as they’ve survived so long bagged.

    @hellopike The first painted Brain would be this guy:

    I don’t think there’s anything shameful about keeping certain toys bagged! Especially if they’re special/important to you! I have the first blank black Obake Dog prototype still bagged, as well as the First Contact blank white Zip Face Obake Dog. There’s a few Bees, Brains and Ggml fighters I’d keep bagged if I could find ‘em. But for the most part I’m too eager to hold, examine and take photos.

    Also, some of the older figures tend to 'sweat' heavily if left in the bags for a long time.

    @akum6n This Ggml was actually quite sweaty upon unbagging. I just lightly took an alcohol wipe to the base, and was good to go!
