  1. the slag is better than i initially thought. the proportions are odd but not as bad as i thought. that said, do i REALLY want to get $200 worth of chug scale G1ish dinobots when I have a great MP set? i mean i couldn't resist grimlock (his proportions are great and better then the mp or 3p mp options imo), but the rest of the guys....dunno. they'll take a lot of space too. haha
  2. an in scale invid shock trooper is what...half the height of a legioss? maybe a bit more i think? that samples is a nice size (out of scale but i like that size better).
  3. that soundwave is nice. i just didn't want to spend that much on it. i might still pick up an mpm jazz though (if i can find it for a good discount off retail) and if i do that i'd me more likely to be tempted to add another bayverse car like this guy. really though, i will get around to the dx9 hot rod figure at some point though. prices are not great now and i heard teh ko is just so so. oh well...maybe i won't go down further down bayverse car path
  4. really hope its a stand alone with a new visor included or a new head. i don't want to get another 1J thrown into the price! would love for the seat thing to be included.
  5. its a little sad that if you were to upscale either newage or MS and make the necessary changes - they'd both look better than quakewave or quakeblast in a lot of areas. lol. not that i don't still love those pieces but i would love for a properly sized MP shockwave that actually looks the part. takara's is too small for me...and feels not great in hand (yes i have that one too).
  6. odd i can't find the sold by amazon japan listing for skids...only for reboost. the skids i found are 3rd party sellers. did amazon jp sell out?
  7. that last point.....YES! its not like they were designing to a premade robot mode form. just take the Fricking iconic looking arc and transform it into a workable looking massive robot. its almost as if they didn't care the ark ship mode doesn't look right. someone will make partsforming filler pieces. i hope they're molded professionally though and not a 3d printed garage shop job because those pieces will be huge. that being said it still looks pretty good overall as giant ship turning into a massive autobot...the price is OK for something like that...actually pretty damn good (3P wou
  8. checking in after years of forgetting this awesomeness existed... can all the parts needed to make these be sourced here? https://www.shapeways.com/shops/xigfrid3dshop?section=VF-9&s=0
  9. the overall shape is kinda wrong too. its missing its iconic curved rear "quarter panels". i mean everybody knows what the ark looks like form the back and back 3/4 view.
  10. woah so the ship mode of the ark is looking kinda hollow on the sides...the robot is ok. it inlcudes a teletran one that converts into that smaller robot i guess?

    so are we never ever ever getting more destroids? tbh i bought into this line to have in scale valks and destroids and zentrans mecha. seems like its been forever since macross HMR non valk.
  12. lol the ONE valk i decided to troop build..... remember we met up at starbucks in JC for that trade? haha. i haven't TF'd them much and they've ben put away for the better part of a decade but none were yet broken when i put them away. i do think someone put up 3D printed traingels on shapeways....never got around to it. maybe someday. lets hope sentinel does better on the iota than even the zeta. i'm tempted to sell my old eta (misb) and get a new one. lol.
  13. it looks OK, BUT i just figured out whats bothering me. streetwise's chest windshield needs to angle out a bit more...the top should be fruther away from the plane where his face would be in other words. Same thing about the lower legs. the lower lets are suppose to slope out a bit the lower they get....based on the shape of the back of the car. this one seems to go to lengths to avoid tat part of his look. MMC's (by the basic render anyway) got that right. even the CHUGsterpiece aka updated GT Sarge (based on a modern 370z) got those 2 points about streetwise right. i REALLY hope MMC'
