Oooh, neat! I hope the mask looks as impressive on the actual figure as it does in the promotional photos!
Is the Egyptian figure a pre order, or in stock?

Hmm, ...now THAT is the question. I asked the seller the very same and was told this.

"When you pay for it, we will let our manufacture send it to us, it needs about 3-5 days and then we can send it to you ,please understand"
Sounds like a pre-order? Or not?
The seller appears to have an excellent reputation according to eBay, but I paid with PayPal and the very second it even nears the stated due date I will be asking for a refund.

Not a pre order is it Barry ? It`s great to see you have such enthusiasm for a figure . I was not a big Phicen fan , but after getting a male one a while back , they are impressive figures , and can achieve and hold some realistic poses . I know your show us more when he shows up , and I look forward to that . bounce

I’m waiting on this set from EBay that my dad won for me on my behalf.

Who is the seller Barry ? Maybe we have had dealings with them .

I'm not a big fan either Mark, and in truth would have bought the set if the figure had been the more conventional articulated plastic one.
I like the whole Egyptian outfit and it does appear to be fairly high class stuff. (Plus the throne.)
I already have a lot of Egyptian props and have just finished a 1920's Egyptologist figure.
Besides, you only see the hands of Tut so I may even swap out the figure if it fits.

SOLD BY szly1_63.
eBay gives him a high rep.
Anyone bought anything from him?
He has quite a few good ratings and the few complaints against him seem to be about the quality of what was bought, not about not receiving it.

Not heard of him , the feedback is a good place to look , but don`t go by the scores alone , they are worthless .

Don't worry, it's a PayPal purchase and if it gets anywhere near the 60 day cut-off I'll be asking for a refund. (Of course the figure was not cheap!)
Hopefully all will be well. I am currently still getting stuff from China. It's taking a while but it is still arriving.
The postal system here in Oz is not exactly swift at the moment.
The tracking for one VERY long overdue item from China says that that it's actually somewhere here in Australia! And there it apparently sits...... Rolling Eyes

Barry, it's a pity you didn't order from Gaintoy directly, much more reliable than ebay and cheaper too! They are the most trust worthy seller I know of. Free shipping too bounce .

I did get free shipping and a substantial discount on what the figure is selling for elsewhere on eBay.
I thank you for your concern Dal, it's appreciated. I always do quite a bit of homework before hitting that "buy" button on anything.
Even put it on my watch list and waited for the lower offer to materialise overnight, which it invariably does. It was quite a cut too!
(Never buy straight up!)
Of course there's always the chance that things COULD go pear-shaped but there's still a lot of Chinese sellers coming up with the goods.
I'll hit the panic button when/if things start looking dodgy and start seeking a refund.

PS just checked Giantoy and I did pay about $10 more than they have it for if the currency conversion is to be believed, but with the import duties here the difference will be minimal.

Not a problem Barry, after the recent dodgy deals shall we say on ebay, and shady dealers, I have been buying from Gaintoy for around a year now. To date, I have never had an issue with Gaintoy, plus their customer service is second to none, and they do a great bonus points system when you open an account with them cheers . I just wanted to pass on a really good seller cheers .

Thanks! Just looking at some of their merchandise I'm sure I'll become a customer in the near future.

Another S20A body (for Schatzie Sturm von Stroheim) whose S21B (tonal mismatch) was appropriated to create Bambi von Braun. Also, a Jiao Dolls office leather swivel chair, which I've been wanting for over a year now, but always found other stuff to spend the money on. Kamiko will be pleased, as she's had it with sitting on folding chairs in her office.

A 1/6 scale iphone is also on the way, courtesy of a dealer on Etsy. Apparently, they work in Dinosaur Valley....at least some of them do.

A set of Gundam Markers, with which I will attempt to colour the nipples of some of my figures, using a technique illustrated in and OSF post.

Oh, and a Gac Toys GC 004B head sculpt....No body for it as of yet. I don't even know if she'll be on the side of good or evil. though something about her look says "evil."

I've been wanting to get myself one or those S37's for a while to start an anime collection, (as I am a fan of anime) but so far, my budget is just entirely soaked up by my present eclectic retro post-apocalyptic collection.

It's not a question of finding room for them, which incidentally is becoming increasingly hard, but finding the money for a whole new collection, although truth be told, it would not be so militarized as my current one, (I think) and I would not be buying so many bits and pieces for them. They main problem I see is that finding clothing that looks right on these very slim wasted anime bodies would be next to impossible, and if you're thinking of just leaving them in their bikinis, think again, as the rubber straps will eventually just snap under the constant tension of being worn. That's what every review or owners comment on these I've read has stated.

Still, I want some.....

I imagine it probably would be, however I don't see how as Barbies are so small chested and these figures are.....well endowed, would be the most polite way of putting things.

More precisely, some Barbie (and other fashion doll) clothing fits those bodies well; Ken doll clothes, in particular, fit around the curvier sections without appearing too baggy on the more trim areas.

Cancelled pre-order on: Flagset Eternal Empire Eagle's Nest Guard Martina figure
Transferred deposit to: Ujindou WWII British SAS Lieutenant Colonel Blair Mayne figure (in stock at Monkey Depot)

My aforementioned Tutankhamun (White) arrived a week ago from the Chinese seller. All good....apparently!
Trouble is I can't see it.
It's a Christmas present and the giver has checked it out and says it's all complete and very impressive,
but now it's all wrapped up in Xmas paper awaiting 25th December! santa

I completely hate myself for having bid on this and won, but I hated the fact that I don't have a single space/sci-fi related figure in my collection.


https://www.ebay.ca/itm/274978391774



More hateful still that what I really love most is the retro bubble helmet and that will probably eventually kitbash this figure to look like this one, which the one that drew my attention to the CY Girls set in the first place.
