    Got Combat Crawler X2 and Striking Venom courtesy of the Melbo mobsters (JD and STL) today. Thanks guys! Pics later when I've finished building them.

    Finished pics!!











    Not really fond of the Combat Crawler X2 but love the Striking Venom. In terms of space it takes up the most room thus far of all my mechs due to its long, large arachnid legs. The Combat Crawler X2 just doesn't seem to fit in as well with all the other mechs and machines - I dunno what it is but atleast the smaller yellow mech is decent - its just the large walker that irks me.

    I couldn't help myself last night. As soon as I picked this up from Jaydisc, I had to build it. I started at about 2:00. An hour later this was the result:



    It's a beautiful thing. My only one complaint is that there is no waist articulation. But that's easily remedied. I'll do it later tonight. I like it so much I even applied the stickers which are really good. They do enhance the appearance of the toy by a mile. I've so far avoided stickers on the vast majority of them except for the really stand out ones of which Golden Guardian and Aero Booster definitely are. I have doubles of both too.

    And went shopping w/ my missus this evening. I felt left out since she got so much so I bought this:

    What was the price on that Kyle? I see they had the original Castle Chess set going cheap a couple weeks back. Tempted to get it but how many chess sets does a man need?

    Got this baby last night...

    My only problem with this set is that it is too big.

    Nice acquisitions guys. DD I preordered the giant chess set while they had the free shipping promotion, so the total was the price of the set itself: $299.99. It's a lot for a chess set but there are many useful castle parts I just couldn't resist...
