    I've got some sample rods showing up today so I can see how thin I want to go. Unfortunately a full 1mm thick rod like I'd prefer wouldn't quite fit. Made up a colored render to show the detail a bit better.

    I could not find anything about this done before, so I’d like show my repaint of VF-25s Tornado Pack to fit on the YF-25 Prophecy. The YF-25 is still my favorite Valkyrie due to it’s colors and design (Maybe this will change after the release of the VF-31A Kairos though ). When the Tornado Packs for the renewal versions of the VF-25 came out, I always tried to get a hand on Michel’s blue colored pack, but I couldn’t grab one at a reasonable price. But then I made a good deal on ebay and got a second Alto version and decided to make a repaint to fit an the YF-25. The outcome you can see below. I’m glad I went for this „Tornado“-solution for my YF-25, as in my opinion Michel’s Tornado Pack is much too colorful for the YF-25 and its shade of blue doesn’t match the blue color behind the cockpit of the YF-25.

    So the power is out at my place, using my portable photography lighting to light my apartment. I was bored so decided to take some pic of the 31C using my phone.

    Thanks @sumyumgoy! I am pretty sure Bandai will milk the molds. Thanks @beatsing! I was surprised at how light it was compared to the Spartan, but its still an awesome toy. Maraming Salamat @no3Ljm! I am pretty sure they will, Bandai can drain our bank accounts. Group shot of the Destroids.

    After some delays in shipping, my HMR Defender has finally arrived (it was combined shipping with the VF-1J Milia)! Its bit lighter than I thought it would be, but that's ok. Good detail and nice articulation. Now bring on the Tomahawk and Phalanx!

    This is exactly why i stopped checking this thread out. As soon as kuma joined and started spamming the thread with his pics, i knew his attitude would not be far behind. I am not into 3rd party figs at all but a few of my buddies are and two of them experienced what Slaginpit just did. Both made harmless comments only to get snappad at. My go to reviewers are peaugh and wotafa. The two i avoid like the plague...skullface and kuma. Like i said...not at all in to 3rd party stuff but i did occasionally like checking out some pics and reviews but now that kuma and his attitude is here, I've been staying far away. In my 10 years on MW, i have only put one person on my ignore list...now there are two.

    From what I remember, the poster was made for the 1993 Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla movie but Mecha-G was nothing like the what was shown in the poster. Toho went with a different design of Mecha-G. Ohrai Noriyoshi does amazing work, here is one of his pieces that all of us at MWF will like.

    Truly enjoyed The Super Dimension Convention. Seeing so many Macross items in one place was really something else. I circled the vendor hall a number of times, and each trip I spotted something I'd missed on an earlier tour: books, model kits, toys, posters, etc. Just so many items. The work from the artists in the vendor hall was also incredibly impressive. Quite a lot of talent on display. The Macross Pachinko machine that Adrian and Mike had set up at their table was very cool as well. Two genuinely friendly guys who raffled off a number of things at the end of the day. Thanks for being so generous with your time, and it was great talking with both of you! Spent a lot of time checking out the items in the Museum & Gaming room too. So many great things to look over. Getting to see Mari Ijima perform was definitely a highlight, and the Idol Contest and Walkure mini-concert were also a lot of fun. Glad I was able to attend this year, and thanks to everyone who helped make the convention happen.

    Big update, at least from my point of view: all the anime magic has been solved and I could obtain a perfect transformation. Now I need to clean the model, check for tolerance and printability before processing to 3D printers.

    Who said it's not doing well? I don't think we've seen any proof of that yet. If our members here are any indication (and unfortunately, they're probably not) the line is doing extremely well! We'vehad releases of all sorts of goodness so far and I don't think there's any proof HM-R is suffering that I've seen. In my opinion, if it weren't going well, we'd never have seen the Missile Regult due in December at all. Just my take on things.

    Looking good Thom! You can see the throttle quadrants and everything! I love the paint scheme and detail Chavakaiser! It has a realistic look to it. The ship and your figure look GREAT Arbit! The fiber optics take a fairly bland design and make it stand out. The figure looks great with your updates. Are you going to paint highlights on the clothing for depth? ALMOST DONE with the ship. Biggest change was adding a 1/4" lip around the top of the deck from the wheelhouse to the stern. The lip is a "C" channel of styrene that a square tube slides into snuggly. The square tube goes onto the lip of upper deck. So the top deck slides on and is now mostly water proof. No fasteners to undo. I extended it to cover the "exhaust" and give me a small helipad (helicopter sold separately, batteries not included). Also added the "glass," Harpoon missile tubes, rebuilt the .50 cal HMGs with brass parts, and added a ton of detail all over the place to include bollards and other tie downs. The crane was built of spare parts and the inflatable boat needs to be finished up. - MT

    Mirage's scheme on a -31A would be the best thing ever. If Mirage and Hayate, as the noobs, had -31A/B's (or the C was also BSW), it'd have looked very cool. Make the FSW variants truly rare/special, and only for Arad and Messer. And it would have been appropriate for Hayate to "graduate" to a FSW variant later.

    Since our town will be doing Trick or Treating tomorrow, we had to finish up all the costumes today. My son wasn't wearing his final shirt for test fitting, though. My Barad Dur costume slumped a bit after painting, but I think it's fun. Not sure if I'm going to bother with the balaclava, it's a little too tight for my comfort.

    After taking the shot of the VF-27 with the Sv-262, I decided to watch Sayonara no Tsubasa. I got inspired by the Alto vs Brera dogfight.

    Depends if they're mecha-oriented fans like us, or the more typical Delta fan who'd probably ask if you'd hit your head if you said it was a mecha series.

    I find Skullface pretty good. He interacts ok with his subs. Outside of the transformation blah blah blah, which at times is useful as I need help with some of the steps as I never use the instructions., I like his final thoughts as they seem to be the most unbiased. What I am really interested in is a recommend or not. All I did with Kuma was pay a nice compliment to his photography skills and mentioned how cool it would be with backgrounds. And then he gets snarky. He has a history of this. And its amusing watching him use the search function furiously to find any thread related to Third Party thread to litter his pics with. So much for a guy who doesnt care positive or negative what people think. Outside of that beauty of the shots, I really like our long time resident that posts his reviews in this thread.

    Less than you'd think, really... Freyja was only experiencing that accelerated aging because she was burning up her rune singing fold songs at full blast to combat the Song of the Wind and Var syndrome. Now that the conflict's over, she's not going to continue deteriorating the way Heinz was, since that was caused by over-using his runes to cause and control Var syndrome. With the Star Shrine destroyed, there really isn't a lot more the ruins can do besides maybe open fold gates to connect the worlds of the Brisingr cluster. It'd solve Windermere IV's issues with its interstellar commerce, but too little too late since they've alienated literally everybody. You can't exactly send gift baskets to an entire globular cluster saying "Sorry for the mind control and all of the oppressive xenophobic totalitarianism"... and even if they could, after all that who's going to trust a fruit basket from Windermere? Lady M's identity will never be revealed because she hasn't got one. No, really. According to the interview they did in Newtype about a year ago, they never decided on an identity for her as that mysterious nature is key to the character. She wouldn't be an existing character anyway, there's nobody in the existing setting who could fit the few things said about her. Mikumo's origin is explained in-series, she's a cloned human who was modified with the genetic information found in the ruins on Windermere IV. Who she's a clone of (if anyone) is the only thing that's left unexplained. I privately suspect Mikumo Guynemer of Walkure is a clone of the another, much older Mikumo Guynemer alias Lady M. The final few episodes of Macross Delta pretty comprehensively declawed Windermere IV and the Kingdom of the Wind's Aerial Knights. Thanks to his own overwhelming naivete, King Heinz is an invalid confined to bed because all that abuse of his runes on the Song of the Wind has him quite permanently at death's door and unable to continue capitalizing on weaponized Var syndrome. A good number of the Aerial Knights and half their aces are dead including their commander (Roid) and top ace (Keith). The Star Shrine was damaged and they lost control of Mikumo. To put the metaphorical cherry on it, the corporation that was providing all of their technical assistance and military hardware bailed on them so their supply chain is effectively cut off too. Edit: ... and the Aerial Knights aren't likely to renew the war on their own either, considering two of the three remaining aces are Walkure fans and the third is a closeted Walkure fan. Why the New UN Spacy bombed Carlyle on Windermere was explained in the series (Hayate's dad did it by accident, he wasn't following orders), and Roid's little psychotic break is also explained in the series (he's got issues with his species' very limited lifespan and a misplaced belief in manifest destiny). We're denied the closure of Windermere realizing its misdeeds and burying the hatchet the way so many other Macross antagonists have done, but beyond that the story's pretty much settled. Now that is a fair point. If nothing else, they need to keep the merchandising going so that Bandai and company can capitalize on the license they paid good money for. As a Macross II fan, all I can say to this is "butch up, buttercup". What little flak Macross Delta gets is peanuts compared to what Macross II and Macross 7 fans have been putting up with for decades. The whole point of discussing a series is to share opinions of it, and people are under no obligation to censor their opinions just because you don't agree with them. (Provided that they're expressing their discontent in a civil fashion.)

    The best thing about Megatron is that we have choices!!! I prefer toy aesthetics but I love MP 36. It's true his proportions are as if he jumped out of the screen, but he has details, hes not that plain as other late MP's. Had MP-05 and sold it, then Apollyon which I thought would be my definite Megs but comparing both made Apollyon redundant in my collection.
