    How much was that kit?

    Glass by M. Night Shyamalan

    Wha...uh..huh? lol. Just kidding I understand. Chris
  4. Just watched the first episode and i thought it was great. They changed a little bit the character design of some of the main characters. I liked the work they did on Mikasa and Armin, not quite sure how i feel about Levi whom seems closer to the original design of the manga(at least from what i can remember, i only read the first few tankobons several years ago). The only thing i found truly awful was the new opening. Shinzo wo Sasageyo was absolutely amazing and i knew we were not getting something as good as that. But the new one, Red Swan i think it's called, it is in my opinion totally out of tone for the show. Big let down but can't say i care that much since this new season seems to be able to keep the same quality of the previous two.

    Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    Yeh, that's what I used this morning to try on round 2, but this time I drew a "safe" outline in black sharpie before I went to work. Attempt 2 came out better, so now I just have to VERY carefully file or sand down the parts to fit...which is easier than it sounds. I dunno...I have a bad feeling about these cockpits looking right..to bad I already sealed the gear doors and sent the landing gear to NZEOD in New Zealand or I would seriously reconsider doing open canopies!

    Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    I'd cut close to the canopy edge with a rotary saw tool for your dremel and the sand away the rest with coarse sandpaper or a file. The rotary cutter is very comfortable since you don't' have to apply much pressure when cutting.
  8. I just finished Ishuukan Friends and it is such a beautiful story.

    The Third Party Transformers Thread

    - Exactly and that's why I'm not "arguing" your opinion but just providing an alternative perspective and making sure to state such. It's unfortunate that things seem to be so inconsistent with these products in general, IMO. - And thank you, but this is Maestro not Downbeat. It's funny because I was just talking to another photo guy about who you really can't tell the difference between the two from that angle at all. He almost exclusively has to be shot wings out or top-down to show the tampos that really differentiate!

    The Third Party Transformers Thread

    I think all my OX toys with the exception of Jaguar had paint mishaps. I know extrapolating a general trend from maybe 10 item is faulty but generally to me, and my preferences the Reformatted toys are of a higher quality. I'm glad that your copies are all in good shape but that doesn't reflect my personal experience. I can recognize that they tied something higher end with the OX line, especially in the engineering department. What baffles me is that they have issues (like paint, molding and durability) that are non issues for most of their other stuff. I agree that Cynicus was problematic. If I remember correctly they stated that he was assembled in a different factory which lead to the breakage issues. Maybe they have factories that turn out great stuff and some that don't and maybe OX toys are assembled in the latter one. Generally I seem to have other preferences when it comes to collectible toys than most others. Maybe I should stick to Metal Builds and Valkyries. [edit:]Love the Downbeat pictures but man I wished they used a flat gray instead of the swirly plastic (or better paint).
  11. Exactly my thoughts. But hey, to each his/her own . On a side note, anyone knows if there are shapeway/3D printed acessories for the sdf-1? say for example 1/3000 gripper arm+VF-1 during launch, or 1/3000 monster or destroids?

    Baby Crab 1/48 Build from Moscato

    I believe that the proportions of the eager are perfect, it really looks great next to the pinky. I hope to start soon with the blueberry crab.

    - I'm not a huge Ocular Max person. I had Sphinx, Off-road, Terraegis Rally, and Jaguar (With frenzy and the TFCon cassettes coming this week) and they've all been... perfect? I think the paint on hellion looks like absolute crap but I definitely don't judge the entire line from it because it doesn't account for even a percent of my personal experience with or what I've seen from the outside of the line. On the flip side with reformatted I think about stuff like Azalea's head falling off 90% of the time it's transformed and whoever that DJD guy that turns into a gun (Cynicus?) crumbling in people's hands and no; I don't think there's a comparison between the two sublines/brands at all. I think that Reformatted are definitely on the upper end of Classics-scaled toys but in general I find Ocular Max to be more premium. -----------------------------------------------------------

    I wonder if the feet can extend for additional articulation.

    New Macross TV Series in 2018

    I'm hoping the new series rekindles the fire smoldering inside Macross fans

    Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    Yeah, I loved seeing Tywin there at the end.
  17. Got back from summer holiday (and a nefarious wifi connection) and binge -finished some stuff. FMP was pretty solid IMO, although the production issues made it maddening to follow at times. Now I really hope they manage to finish it. I want to see that ending with Kaname and Sousuke. Darling in the FRANXX went full Gunbuster at the ending. Trigger cannot deny that they're the sons of Gainax. Big time. I think the series lacked some narrative structure and tried too many themes at the same time. after an impressive spring season, I'm on too summer season 18 and I must say it's pretty disappointing so far. At least we get Attack on Titan 3 in a couple of hours.

    Looks nice! The nosecone looks kind of short. Interchangeable parts or some new gimmick to make it longer in fighter.

    Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    I personally like the look of the naked sdf-1..... when I find one at a decent price I'll just weather it up a bit, all those painted on "lights" the premium has makes it look a bit off to my eyes

    Glass by M. Night Shyamalan

    While are were great I'd of all this weekend's trailers I'd say GLASS's was the most interesting.

    Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    This looks really good and I'm glad to see Millie Bobby Brown getting more roles beyond Stranger Things. P.S. Tywin: "Long live the king". Tyrion: "I shall".

    SDCC Robotech

    Smart money says Harmony Gold probably made Strange Machine Games buy the RPG license at the same time they purchased a license to make that board game. Harmony Gold did publicly refute Palladium Books's claim that they (Palladium) were outbid by someone else for the Robotech license, indicating that their license had been revoked because of the failure to deliver on the Robotech RPG Tactics Kickstarter. It's probably that HG licensed the RPG and board game rights to Strange Machine as a package deal, possibly a compulsory one like Harmony Gold's earlier (unsuccessful) attempt to strongarm Palladium Books into acquiring the Robotech 3000 license sight-unseen at an additional cost by making it a requirement for renewal of their existing Robotech license c.2000. Harmony Gold is definitely in "once bitten, twice shy" mode right now as Strange Machine Games explicitly confirmed on their official Facebook page that their license prohibits them from using Kickstarter and other forms of crowdfunding on Robotech projects. HG's actions since their binding arbitration with Tatsunoko Production over royalties definitely have an air of desperation to them, like they're trying to squeeze as much cash as they can out of the Macross license before they lose it with a merchandising blitz before they lose the license in early 2021.

    Hi-Metal R

    This is what Jungle mentioned in the How to Use section of the grades (copied it from their website and post it here) In JUNGLE we basically sell 3 kinds of products: SEALED item:Item new in sealed box. “A grade item”: Used item in a near mint-condition. “B grade item”: The item has been removed from packaging and displayed in a show case. I've bought five "Grade B" items form them and they where in good condition as display items (three 1/60 and two 1/48 ) just only the boxes where dented and slightly scratched up. If a slight scratch has been found on the valk, they would mention in the listing, It depends if your picky about having pristine boxes or slightly dinged up ones for a slight discount (and it depends on the financial situation that you're currently in as well). Curious to see your HMR VF-1J Armoured valk upon getting it @sh9000.

    Star Trek: Discovery

    AFAIK, the original official stance from Star Trek's creators was originally that the timeline diverged from our own history around the time TOS was being filmed (~1966). The original Star Trek series had a few plots that supported that position. "Assignment: Earth" was one of them, depicting a 1968-era Earth where the Treaty on Principles Governing the Activities of States in the Exploration and Use of Outer Space, including the Moon and Other Celestial Bodies was either never ratified or never created and where orbital thermonuclear weapons platforms were a thing. It was later shaded back to the 50's by Enterprise's writers, who put the break in the timeline shortly after the discovery of DNA. Star Trek is usually pretty firm about the idea that it takes a really significant event to spin a parallel universe off an existing timeline and that some timelines reconverge and branch off multiple times as probabilities converge and diverge. There's bound to be overlap between Star Trek's later history and ours, but things that happened may not have happened at the same time or the same way. I was really hoping that Star Trek: Discovery's season season would stop trying to be an action series and settle down into a more credible science fiction offering. That hope seems to have been dashed, and it looks like we're in for another season of Star Trek written by people who really don't understand Star Trek and wish they were writing Star Wars. For my money, the worst part of that trailer isn't the juvenile humor. It's the stupid, spinning one-man bubble pod fighter things. Is Star Trek so hard up for ways to make Star Trek an action series that it's resorting to stealing designs from the old Lost in Space movie? I think I'll once again refrain from taking out a CBS All Access membership. I might pirate the show if there's any real recommendation of Season 2's content, but there's no way I'm supporting this mess financially.
