Man, 2009 is starting off with a Bang! First we get an awesome new President, one Mr. Barak Obama (who is a bit of a geek), and also we have a great new batch of toys coming up soon on cdx, including the Beagle Mospeada, TWO Macross Fronteir Valks, the new Yamato Destroid, and even the Respect for Volt in Box.

We're also very excited for Toy Fair this year, although all indications point to a much scaled back event. Still, we get to go to NYC for a few days. If you want to get together with us, let us know! We'll be hitting the usual haunts - chinatown, Toy Tokyo, Image Anime and more...

Anime.CollectionDX.com is doing well, but the extra workload is killing us right now. We primarily need help with news. If you are interested in being part of the CDX family, let me know. We can't pay, but there are perks!

Thanks!

Like the rest of the toy world, model kits have a tendency to fall apart or break. But there's an advantage to models. They're easier to take apart again if you put it together in the first place, and sometimes replacing one part will give you extra room to repair other parts. I've had that kind of luck with kits lately and it stretches back to last year with my Master Grade F91 Cluster#@&%. Some things are just more fragile than they look and sometimes the form doesn't follow the function. SO this is where I make my excuses. The most recent builds I've been working on, or had lined up for review, have had some form of error to another. Whether the part is broken on the runner or the part breaks between its removal and installation.

With my choice distributor's rule of "If you open it, You can't get replacement parts for it" I've been left with going through HLJ.com. This method has its benefits that it gets me a fresh parts runner straight out of Shinjuku, and if need be I can order bare runners from other kits as well, but it pays to be honest and get only what I need otherwise these 'bogus' orders would cost more. The bad news is the shipping time, which rounds out to one full month on average.

English-speaking fans rejoice-!

The pain, the suffering, the hesitation, the dramatics, the loneliness, the teen angst, the cruelty, the politics, the scheming, and the self-analyzing psychology are back in a whole new-yet-familiar way.

Oh, yeah- and don't forget about the Angels too!

I made this book, "All About Joshua Bernard" in October of 1977.

Of course, I've left out a bunch of pages so as not to bore you.

I was six years old in 1979.

My favorite pet was a parakeet named Jack, and my favorite toy was something called the Sho-Gun Warriors.

I also liked to play Hotwheels with Andrea.

My Favorite TV shows in 1979 were Buck Rogers and Devlin

Apparently at the time I looked like a Roswell alien who wore a black t-shirt with dragsters on them.
