Yes, literally years.

Being cheap doesn't help a whole lot.

I have finally gotten myself an Alpha fighter from Robotech(Legioss from Genesis Climber Mospeda for the purists). And I have to say, I'm.... whelmed.

Not exactly overwhelmed. Not exactly underwhelmed. Just..... whelmed. And it's the Japanese version of the Toynami Masterpiece release.

For example: It's well-articulated, with lots of joints. Unfortunately, it's lots of loose joints. The paint job is very good, but it doesn't feel polished, there's no gloss to it. The head's got good side to side articulation, but the piece the head is mounted on doesn't lock in well.

Final conclusion: If you don't want to do anything with it other than put it on the shelf, it's perfect. I'm not sure how well it would stand up to constant play.
