Featuring Variable Fighter (better known as Valkyrie or Valk for short) VF-1A Low Visibility from 'Do You Remember Love' of Macross.
This is supposedly a limited edition production and the price for this piece is sky high; approximately 200% above its original price.
Variable Fighters are transformable and it comes in three modes. The Fighter mode (plane), the Gerwalk (Ground Effective Reinforcement of Winged Armament with Locomotive Knee-joint) and the Battleroid (robot mode)
Next up, we have the Super VF-1J with Fast Packs and it's piloted by the protagonist of the series, Hikaru Ichijyo in Macross, otherwise known as Rick Hunter in the Robotech series.
The Super VF-1J is featured in the animation series of the Super Dimension Fortress and is accompanied by the Super VF-1js of Max and Millia which I will feature the next time round.
These are manufactured by the Yamato group and they are of 1/48 scales. Highly detailed and are great display pieces with good articulation for great poses.
However, they can be very fragile and one wrong move could be disaster. Great caution must be exercised when handling them. Each valkyrie took me about 2 hours or so to transform, display and take pictures.
Well, although time consuming, it's all worth it. Did I mention I have 10 of these?

Guess I was feeling the guilt of not heeding to advice rendered.
Was at a car showroom on 21th (one day away from the second COE bidding). The fear that COE will further increased due to the fact that it has been steadily climbing, I made the decision to confirm the purchase of the car.
I was at total disbelief the moment the COE result was announced at 4pm on the 22nd. It was a decreased of $1991 from $18001 to $16010. Well, I would still consider myself lucky cos the Cat A drop was the most drastic, a whopping $8883 (from $17001 to $8118)! Thank god I did not go with the Airwave.
Well, this is sort of a lesson for me to really pay attention to the advice given and especially when that someone constantly has a strong intuition about how things will turn out.......

This collection would be 5% of my collection. So where are the rest? Watch out for the subsequent entry.

BTW, this time round I'm no scalper as the other piece was bought on behalf for a police officer.

Was at the 11th Craziest Toy Sale at Takashimaya for the ...........(couldn't remember how many times) and I found this pair of Kamen Masked Riders at $10 each! I grabbed them without any hesitation.
Then spent a couple of minutes taking pictures and sorting out my other collections so that I can display them.
Eventually, I placed them back into their packaging. Life......full of choices.

There is always something that is limited to the masses and to make matters worst, there are those unscrupulous merchants or other wise commonly known as Scalpers( http://www.thefreedictionary.com/scalper )in the toy collecting community. What these people do is they will be the first to swipe every single item off the shelves. Then, the next moment, those things will be on sale either in their shops or online auction at ridiculous prices.
