    The pilot insert is a little cutesy for my tastes - I prefer the SF mech approach - but I'm just loving the pink spray! Thanks for the pic.

    I really like the new insert for Gorz. I wish they had kept the word bubble. Although it probably would not have fit in the figure...

    ^ Yes, either of those would be great to have; I'm just not in love with it inside the robot. I assume the insert is reversible, I'd love to see the other side.

    The whole 'pay for the privilege' to buy this overpriced junk angle is getting old . . . there's always plenty more in the works!

    The whole marketing behind everything really pisses me off. Just make fucking toys so people can buy them and be done with it. Enough secret handshake business. I'm not saying I wanted this toy at all but really it's worse than following elections with this hobby anymore. I just don't want the headache with buying anything new. New rule:

    Searching for vintage toys that are no longer made- hunt is fun. Headache buying anything new- not worth it.

    To be honest they announced it on their blog free for anyone to read. Then it was just a matter of being quick with opening your wallet.

    Sooooo no hoops or crazy marketing? Just wild speculation at work again, eh? Yeah, ok, sounds about right.

    Whilst not necessarily the case with this release, this particular retailer is the latest to take advantage of collector insecurity and the point still valid!

    We email to our "member" & offer pre-order to "member" before we announce it in our blog.

    That's it.

    Re: ILU ILU Neo Gorilla, Tokio, Görz, & Other! Database 1st

    these are my favorite versions yet- very very retro looking!
    i love the taste of color tones that you & ilu ilu did these in
    your really hitting a nice vein of that vintage tin toy style

    i missed out completely but it would be awesome to see you
    revisit in flipped color tones of the spray for the pair of dolls
    i think its safe to say others might still want a set of these

    people acting so upset gets old, i am weird i guess because
    i enjoy toys i may never own just as much as ones i do own
    some perhaps more. eventually one finds waht one wants

    i think most folks still have a craving for mass production.
    reasons perhaps our western minds draw assumptions of
    how we should be catered to as customers vs. sofvi fans

    i agree with Lixx- focus on vintage if this new stufs has you
    going bonkers. eventually someone will want "new" & sell this
    current model in short timeframe, always happens & always will

    regardless of price the collecter should be a fan instead
    of just being a customer. japanese sofvi toys are not a
    microwave oven or express lane fodder. they are real

    don't let not owning them ruin it for you. its not cheap or
    easy to pop out a run of figures. these are very complex
    dolls so i would think these took a long time to produce.

    anyway i look forward, hopefully to more versions since
    i do not have any yet. it would be very interesting to
    see these in a museum setting with vintage tin robots

    oh shite you got me there dude! or not.

    you & the other guy seem to like pointing out things i pm'd you
    fyi this just makes you guys seem like trolls looking to flame.........
    i don't care but referencing things said in a pm is very ignorant

    instead of contributing to the scene you complain & insight
    baseless conspiracies over others intentions & the way things
    are marketed. also what would you do if you had that pm?

    what would it add to the context of what is being talked about
    in this thread? i invite you to reply but i only expect diatribe
    from you honestly. i wish you did have that pm i stand by it

    for the record since you made a point of bringing it to this thread

    my pm was a complaint about someone known to flip pushead
    stufs speculating on how much they could sell the nag hp for-
    others heard this guy & he has been unsuccessful acquiring more.

    i don't care what you think of me Andy- but referencing a pm
    is ignorant as a pm is meant to keep shite like this out of legit
    threads. say what you will- i would say all this to you in person

    get over yourself no one cares!

    just have to chime in, what someone says in PM's is more important than what they would openly say on the board, albeit in this case I am gonna go out on a limb and say this PM probably wouldn't be too damning, but someone could seem like an awsome member hook people up etc and then PM someone something intentionally derogatory and be a huge piece of shit

    my pm to Andy had nothing to do with anything other than
    my expressing my opinions at one point in time. not sure
    waht he is trying to suggest currently- nor do i care!


    based on waht? AA/ilu ilu did a great collab with these
    for an exclusive release so your statement is just a lame
    a reflection of yourself alone! go ahead tho fart away!


    if this was never offered even less folks would have this set.
    waht are you trying to say man? who is taking advantage of
    anyone? no one had to buy them- folks did buy it tho.

    its sold out move on.


    >thank you Angel Abby for going thru the process of offering
    exclusives looking forward to seeing many, more releases!

    ^^I think Andy is referring to them offering a membership in which you would get first shot at these exclusives.

    OK again how does this take advantage of anyone?
    no one had to buy anything instead they choose to

    no advantage gained nor lost toys were made
    folks bought them speculation is a mute point

    Re: ILU ILU Neo Gorilla, Tokio, Görz, & Other! Database 1st

    Wasn't this Angelabby (refuse to call them AA) thing just an obvious 'Hello, I'm here now give me your money and all the hard-to-get toys. Because that's really why I'm here'? All the attitude has been 'up your face' and I haven't really gotten the hold of that. Just saying. I don't care how many exclusives they get, if someone comes here just as a way to fill their store with costumers then there's something shady going on. I even passed on the Leather Man exclusive which is a figure I was trying to be completist with but I'd rather stick with what I really think.

    Re: ILU ILU Neo Gorilla, Tokio, Görz, & Other! Database 1st

    any idea why Japanese sofvi toy makers would permit outlets to sell exclusives?

    i missed all the Target Earth exclusives & would want them regardless
    of who offered them. how is it different with other retailers?

    all i am saying here is these are authorized by the Japanese companies
    themselves its not like Angel Abby grew these in their yard!

    >are you saying you would pass on figures you would otherwise want?<

    how about folks that dont have a previous version? is it a bad thing
    to offer exclusive color versions of toys some folks obviously want?
