Armor Plus stuff

Posted by VF5SS 
Here is the ArmorPlus with the 1/16 Bandai snap kit:




I hope the Armor Plus gets another production run. I regret not getting it.

So are these website exclusives again? I'm a little wary after Bandai released two members of Shinkenger as Figuarts then announced two others on the main team were exclusives...
Next Armour YST: Tenku no Touma (Touma of the Heavens)

Also, a new (redder) Ryo.
I wish these figures weren't so expensive. I wanted Ryo and now its impossible to get without seling a kidney.
Yep, The price kills these figures for me as well.

I was especially excited that they're making Ronin Warriors in this style, but once I saw the price, all my excitment vanished. puff! ;[

Ryo was originally ¥6,500. BBTS price is just insane.
I appreciate your post Anavel. I'm thankful to know that's just BBTS's markup & not the toys true price even with import markup.

I'm well aware certain stores have excessive markup but whew!, The markup of BBTS is just ludicrous.
The markup is much higher than it normally would be because these are tamashii web exclusives. Rather than be able to get the toys for wholesale prices like BBTS normally does, they have to buy them at full Japanese yen retail then ship them over - even outside of BBTS these will be awfully dear.

you could probably get it cheaper through a proxy buyer or a lucky ebay hit

i mean i got the green VF-27 for a decent price
It looks like Toy Wave has it for ~$30 cheaper, although, not sure what the shipping looks like. I got the Big-O exclusive set from these guys.

Then again, IIRC, BBTS didn't have outstanding shipping either.

Ah! Yep being an exclusive definitely makes them expensive.
