The Most Expensive Figure Purchase in the History of Riuva

I was going to say most expensive purchase EVAR, but the body pillow and 2 School Rumble cases combined cost more than this one.

Behold, my spanking new SV-51 Gamma!!! I was in a rush and didn’t really have time to transform it to the three modes, but this Macross Zero villain machine has always been my favourite Valkyrie, thanks to its really evil look. Not pictured are two boosters and four rocket pods, which I did not attach. Gerwalk mode is way cooler than Battroid so I probably will display it as such. The plane form is great too. I’ll do a more detailed review soon. Sv-51 is retailing for 21,500 yen, which is about 287 Singapore Dollars. Insanity, but I shall let myself succumb to the madness just once.

The size is rather large as you can see.

I got mine from Toyntoys aka Treasureland, they are selling it for about that price.

And while we’re at it, a Masterpiece MP-06 Skywarp!! This is basically a recolouring of the previously released Starscream. But Starscream is so gay and whiny and had a shitty colour scheme, so I didn’t get him. I have yet to transform Skywarp into robot form, but it looks awesome now as it is. It was about 90 dollars I think. More detailed review to follow.

Skywarp is about the same size as the SV-51.

I realised I always put off reviewing stuff with poseability as it’s a bit more effort. Those with mechanical and scifi elements also tend to get left out as it is quite difficult to get a good backdrop for them.

I currently need to take pictures of and review the following scifi toys, some of which I’ve procrastinated on for a loooong time.

  1. Transformable Eureka Seven LFOs
  2. SV-51
  3. Skywarp
  4. Vanship
  5. Tachikoma

Any ideas for location or backdrop?

Also, what was your most expensive figure or merchandise so far?

    Changi Airport MRT is a good location : just make sure you don’t have very big bags.

    I was hoping to get Roy Focker’s one last year from a local dealer, but it got bought by someone else, oh wells. But the SV-51 Gamma is just as awesome.

    Very nice though that jpy retail price is like “oh bummer” @maximum.
    Also got laugh of the day at the advert from j-list. “Buy some artifical vaginas now!”
    Just great, reminds me so much why I block everything from them, too bad there’s no easy way to block text-only adverts.

    The most expensive among my figures was Konami’s Haruhi Suzumiya school uniform ver. @ Php2k excluding shipping fee… Also play-asia mis-sent a Medicom RAH Asuka Langley Casual dress action doll @ Php6k excluding shipping fee, instead of WAVE 1/8 Asuka Sugo figure.. but it was okay cuz I get to pay the price of Asuka Sugo @ Php2k … Poor them…

    Nice Haul! Another great thing is that Skywarp is in scale with all the 1/60 Macross Zero/Plus figures, so you can actually swap the pilot figures around and they fit just nicely. You should photograph in some wide open area, maybe some stadium?

    As for my most expensive figures, I’d say my Transformers Masterpiece MP-04 Perfect Edition Convoy, whch I like to keep MISB. The next most expensive is probably my Soul of Chogokin Gunbuster.

    Well, since I like gundams and want them all, I went for gashas and bought chess pieces which cost a bomb of over $200 ….

    Solo figure, ironhide transformer from the movie, $45.

    Any ideas for location or backdrop?

    (1) Sungei Gedong Camp

    (2) Paya Lebar Airbase (trespassers shot on sight)

    (3) Changi Airbase (trespassers shot on sight)

    (4) SAFTI MI (just tell them you are going to the Library, or Singapore Discovery Centre)

    (5) Tuas/Changi Naval Base

    Or…you could visit Pasir Laba camp where the Army Open House is being held (till Monday tomorrow). It’ll be crowded, but rest assured that you won’t be shot on sight and there are bound to be locations that are suitable for this photo shoot.

    how’s the execution of the gamma? does it have any issues?

    My most expensive merchandise should be 1/60 Strike Freedom Lightning Edition, which is about 173 SGD. For backdrop, I think clear blue sky is better for the flying mechs

    It’s great to purchase expensive stuff once in a while,especially if you really feel that its worth it ^^

    SAFTI-MI is a good place, that I am willing to testify. Just dont go to the wrong places.

  19. 19 Zeroblade 87 comments

    Most expensive purchase… I’d say it’s Alter’s Fate Testarossa, though that will change when Exelica comes in next year.

    You forgot to mention both the Gamma and the MP were designed by the same person — Kawamori.

    As for location, just find a good open-air parking lot, go in good weather to the top, and scout a good place to take the shots from. Be prepared to shoot from VERY LOW. And Photoshop is always a friend…

    Most expensive purchase is probably the pair of 1/48 VF-1As complete with FAST packs and GBP armour. That’s gotta sting. After that’s probably the Koto-EB Saber, and after that probably the Jin-Roh series from Takara.

    Hmm. MP Prime should be in there somewhere.

    it’s many days later since you posted but i am officially jealous! congrats.

    looking forward to its photo shoot!

    Sadly… the most expensive just the [Alter]Saber figurine.

Do not use any < and > for your own sake. It will end the comment there and then. Also, there is an automatic IQ filter which weeds out comments made by those who accidentally got transported from the stone age.
