  1. It now has pride of place at the centre of my display.
  2. Thank you! I need to work on my display. I have lots of idea for dioramas, but it will have to wait until I have more room. Barcas finally arrived today! I'm finally 100% complete with my Guyver figure collection. Feels good!
  3. Yep. 30 of Barcas and 40 of the processing tank. Considering they're 16 years old i'd imagine there are a even less now, what with loss and damage. It's crazy what they go for now!
  4. Nice collection man! I was jealous of you having barcus until I lucked up yesterday and got a notification from Mandarake a week after scoring the adjustment tank! It must be fate!! It's from the same store as well! I will finally have it next week! Can't wait! It's hard to be believe there are only 30 of these in existence in the world!!
  5. I'm happy waiting as well. I mean it won't be the first manga to enter an indefinite purgatory, but at least it's still getting some love. In the mean-time i've been binge watching a load of 80's OVA's to feed my golden age nostalgia. Stumbled across one called 'Majuu Sensen' recently which bares some striking resemblances. I recommend checking it out if you are a fan of old anime. The manga pre-dates Guyver by a decade and is a mixture of devilman.
  6. Yeah, I didn't even realize it glowed in the dark. Wondering if I can do something cool with a UV up light. Now I just need to find a Barcas!! Took a new photo of my Guyver 1 & Aptom. Really hoping we see some more Guyver figures soon.
  7. Got my hands on a processing tank last week. Haven't unpacked it yet. Waiting until I get a new display cabinet. Wouldn't mind getting a few of these and display them in a line.
  8. Yeah, those are the Garage Kits. They turned out pretty nice and fit in well with the BFW. Size is a good match for the figma guyvers as well.
  9. Thanks to Overspawn for sending me Ramotith and Zencrebe! My 1/12 collection is pretty much complete now. If only I could stumble across a cheap Barcus Maybe one day!
  10. There's a bumper crop of BFW figures on Manda this morning! All 6 sets for only 12,000 yen each!! If I wasn't just about to receive my Ramotith and Zencrebe from overspawn, I would have jumped on set-06!! I almost freaked and bought them all just to have seconds for display, but dropping 72,000 yen on 12 figures I already own seems excessive, even by my standards!! lol I'll let someone else finally get there hands on these gems and enjoy them as myself as I enjoy mine!!
  11. I am interested in Ramotith and Zencrebe. Please PM me and we can agree a deal. Thanks.
  12. I feel you man. My biggest problem is that Guyver isn't all I collect and this isn't even all of it!
  13. Thanks a lot guys. I seriously need more space now. Still haven't even unboxed Gergoile yet, and you know imma keep hunting for that affordable BFW set6 and Barcus Time to get a Detolf!
  14. Well even though Matt didn't respond to any of my messages, my Aptom V4 came down from the US super fast with DHL. Another build I had to improvise on, (no idea how those tendrils are supposed to attach, I don't have a solder), but I'm really happy with it. Oh, and if anyone wants the BFC Guyver II kit, shoot my a PM with your offer. I'd like to sell it.
  15. "wedged the cone into the top cover part" - That's the bit right there I had trouble with. I think originally my hole was too small, then I made the plastic softer with hot water, that didn't work, so then I cut it a bit bigger and it still wouldn't "wedge" so I gave up
  16. I must just be an idiot then. Followed the instructions and spent an hour trying to figure out how the balls were supposed to attach to the cannon covers. There is obviously a socket in the shoulders which is fine, but to attach it to the covers its said to cut a hole with a notch in the ball and push it in to the disk thing on the covers underside. No matter what I tried it wouldn't stay connected and it was pretty obvious that any pressure trying to close them would pop it off. Just glued the balls on in the end. They'll still pop off if I try to move them though. Not really sure what e
  17. Congrats man! How did you get on with Aptom's shoulder canons? Were you able to follow the instructions and make them articulated, or are they just stuck on? Also, how is the glow in the dark on ZX-Tole. It doesn't look much in regular light which is why I passed on it, but interested to know how it looks in the dark. Is it the same scale as the BFC figure?
  18. Nothing, but i'm still checking this site regularly for news. Maybe one day. Next Feb is the 35 year anniversary, so maybe we'll see something then??!!
  19. Got my Aptom V2 in yesterday and finally built it today! Took about 2-3 hours and must admit it was the trickiest one so far. No idea how those shoulder cannons are supposed to open/close, so just ended up gluing it.
  20. Aw well. If it's for his kids I won't make him wait any longer. He obviously has his reasons for not responding to any of my messages. Hopefully he comes back to me before he ships. Ended up shelling out £130 for the 2 (£30 shipping, damn eBay Global Shipping Program!!), so if I can make £30 back on the GII i'll be happy. Wow! No idea why you'd need 3 Aptom 4s! LOL. I'm pleased to have one for my display. That'll be me for a while now. Just got my 2nd GIII figma in, so once I get these 2 Aptoms versions i'm straight. Unless an affordable Ramotith & Zencrebe set ever pops up!!
  21. Great stuff!! I was surprised to see him getting out of the collecting game. Have you had any joy contacting him on your orders? He has sent me lots of payment reminders, but i've been trying to ask him if he can just sell Aptom 4 and remove Guyver II for a small discount, even just $30, but he's not answering. I'll probably just end up selling the Guyver II cheap if not. Guess you already had the Aptom 4? Seems to have been the listing that had the most bidding action!
  22. Looks like Guyversudo is selling off his BFC kit collection on eBay (http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/guyvergiganticexceed/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from=). Managed to snag myself Aptom 4, so I finally have the 5 kits I was after!! Now just for BFW set 06. See that Barcus and the processing tank are going for 40K each on YAJ!! With the current exchange there is no way I can justify dropping the best part of £700 on those 2, so i'll have to make do until I win the lottery or something
  23. Apologies if it was anyone here I was fighting with to win that BFC-16 Aptom Ver.2 today on YAJ Managed to get it for 8,500 yen in the end. Looking forward to adding it to the collection! Only the BFC-19 Aptom Ver. 3/4 and BFW Ramotith/Zencrebe left and i'm done. I've given up hoping to find an affordable Barcus or Aptom w/ processing tank and my painting skill's aren't good enough to do Aptoms head on the Elegen SP edition.
  24. Updated my display. Another big thank you to UnitG for Gregole!!
