  1. Just out of curiosity, has anyone received their Mospeada pre-orders from BigBadToyStore yet? I still have not been charged for mine.
  2. On my Asus Z97-AR, the CPU_OPT header delivers a constant 12V. I use it to power the pump of my Corsair H75 cooler because the pump needs to run at a constant speed. The two radiator fans are then connected to the CPU_FAN header. So unless you want your case fan to run at a constant speed, it is best to connect your case fan to one of the four CHASIS_FAN headers that the motherboard has.
  3. I feel like a vampire for not being able to see my own reflection in the mirrors. LOL.
  4. And it gets better. I found myself enjoying the series more than I thought I would.
  5. Nice IS350 with X-Package!!! What year is it? I used to have a black '08 IS350 with the same X-Package until the twins came along. Then it was time to trade the IS in for a minivan because there was no way I could fit two car seats in the back of the IS. Argh, I miss my little toy.
  6. I wish there were more distinct visual differences between the new Lotuses though. As they are right now, these cars look like they were just one car that was pushed and pulled in various dimensions.
  7. Hey Totoro242, Can't guarantee if I do but if you can give me the name that you were using, I will try to find them for you.
  8. Ah-ha, my memory has not completely gone away with old age. Follow the below link for some scans of the Axoid instruction that I had way back when I was running the Valkyrie Factory website (some ten plus years ago). Enjoy. http://www.menet.umn.edu/~ngo/axoid/
  9. Steders, try this: www.menet.umn.edu/~ngo/condar Sorry I don't have the original instruction anymore to get you a better scan.
  10. Thanks for the link to picture of "the box." After seeing it, I just had to go ahead and cancel my pre-order at HLJ.
  11. Hey guys and gals, Just got a reply from HLJ concerning the VF-1J with armor pack: Yamato's upcoming 1/48 VF-1J Hikaru w/ Armor Parts (YMT00074) is a double pack set that consists of 1/48 Armor Parts for VF-1 Valkyrie (YMT00040) and 1/48 VF-1J Hikaru (YMT00025) Now, the interesting question is will it be a repeat of the TRU special with a (blue) box containing the original VF-1J and GBP boxes or a completely new packaging of the two toys together?
  12. Hi all, I just saw the "1/48 VF-1J Hikaru w/ Armor Parts" listed in the pre-order section of HobbyLink Japan (www.hlj.com/product/YMT00074) and was wondering if anyone here has any info on it. Particularly, will it be a re-release of the Yamato 1/48 VF-1J Hikaru Type and the 1/48 GBP armor in two separate (original) boxes or will it be a repackaging of these two toys in one new box? Thanks for any information anyone can provide.
  13. Like Graham said, "Sub all the way." Besides, my ears are not as good as they used to be (too much loud music in my adolescent years) so with sub, I am less likely to miss stuff than with with dub.
  14. Hey guys (and gals), Just noticed that HLJ had posted a few pictures from the 2005 Shizuoka Hobby Show (my apology in advance if this is a repost). Of interest are the two pics of the 1/48 GBP armor set seen in these links: http://www3.hlj.com/shs05/scifi/pictures/IMG_6695.html http://www3.hlj.com/shs05/scifi/pictures/IMG_6742.html Hmmmm, I wonder if the extra piece lying in the lower left corner of the second pic is the removable "crotch cover" for the long nose of the 1/48 Valk.
  15. RTShark, You mean these? http://www.menet.umn.edu/~ngo/vf-1j_sd_max.html http://www.menet.umn.edu/~ngo/vf-1j_sd_milia.html http://www.menet.umn.edu/~ngo/vf-1s_sd.html These Matchbox SD's are nothing but Bandai SD's re-boxed as Robotech and sold in the U.S. back in the mid 80's.
