wats with the re-visit of DML figures?
I notice some of your OD back pack has faded under the UV light, time to call in 3M to install the protective films!

hi marcus, while awaiting new shipments to come, i decided to post some of my old stuff and document my collection lah ;p i also noticed the OD stuff faded over time - amazing thing is, the backpack was covered by the desert cover so imagine my surprise when i removed the cover to find that the backpack had faded! And my cabinets have no lighting and are placed away from the windows. Natural weathering - ha! ha!
