"Super" sizing my collection

horrible title pun refers to this wonderful thing I got in the mail yesterday:

and, of course, it goes so well with my previous acquisitions:

and finally, horribly lit photo of my shelf of Aoi figures:

from left to right: unarmored blind box figure, MMZ-01, MMZ-02, and gun mode MMZ-00 in the back.

That thing is huge! I suppose though that being an adult themed show, it's probably 1:1 scale.

Very nice.

yup. all 3 MMZs are 1:1 scale with sound effects. you have no idea how happy I am to own all 3.

hell, back in the summer before MMZ-02 was even available, I brought both gun ones with me to Otakon, and every sentai fan who saw me pull them out got giddy. especially cool was running into a guy I'd met last year, because this year he was in an Akibared suit and his girlfriend/wife was dressed as Malshiina. neither of them had an MMZ on them, and mine were in my bag when we ran into each other for the first time. I immediately looked to them and said "wait, wait! I wanna give you something so we can take a picture!", pulled them out, and he actually hopped up and down, squeeing a bit, because he was so excited to see the MMZ-01, since it's apparently the harder one to get a hold of. as an example, the dealers' room booth that has sentai and rider stuff, like morphers, belts, weapons, mecha, figuarts, etc. had MMZ-00 for sale, but no MMZ-01.

all in all, it's just fun to own awesome stuff.

pre-ordered it over the summer, it came out back in September, and I was only just able to pay for shipping last week.

they still have them in stock, though. http://www.hlj.com/product/ban981930/Sci

Really? That definitely didn't happen with the MMZ-01. Perhaps they realised the demand of it and then increased the production number for the 2nd season stuff.

wouldn't surprise me. I remember MMZ-01 being labeled a collectors' item, I think, which was why I pounced on it, but I believe they even still have MMZ-00 in stock on the site I buy from.
