Re: Your latest purchases, cont.






These are my seasonly Zoid purchases: Valga and Arosaurer. Taking into consideration that I've been hearing that Valga are getting rare (and I've observed that they are getting pricy), and this is the first completely new design from the Rebirth line that I've bought, I'm quite excited with this one.

I managed to get Arosaurer for about $6, not including shipping, which was I think around $7. I have always thought that Arosaurer looks like a sturdy design, and it looks like his leg design is similar to many in the Saurer family (namely Gravity Saurer), so this should be a fun build.

Oddly enough, I found that three of Valga's pieces has managed to escape from their sprues, and a forth was hanging by only one sprue branch, so I decided to snap it off, and put all four of them in the bag that only had one sprue to decrease the chances of them rubbing up against something and getting scratched. I guess this means that at least in this case, Valga's plastic is pretty hard, which I guess is better than the softened plastic that I've heard that Rebirth Heldigunner has, which I recall one Zoidspoison member saying that cutting the excess plastic from the sprues being like carving chocolate.

I know the photo is a little blurry, but it was pretty cloudy by the time I managed to take it, my silver camera had dead batteries in it thanks to my dad, who didn't change it, so I had to use his camera, which doesn't have a Tulip button like my silver camera, so I had to make due. Beggars can't be choosers, and considering that it started to rain soon after I went back inside, I'm probably lucky to get what got.

How rude. I'll have to get some heavy-duty glue or something so mine doesn't get stolen.

Love it!!!

(would never nick somebody's Darwin fish though. Not just because it's a dumbass move, but also it could lead to the aforementioned dumb ass being seriously kicked.)
