  1. STAR WARS Merchandise Episode - 2

    *extremely childish glee-scream*YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!!! my basement will end up full of B-wings... Mine and my Roomie's fav. Starwars fighter!
  2. According to ANN: fascinating.
  3. Wave 1/72 Destroid re-issue

    Apparently the VF-22S is also up for re-issue by Hasegawa.
  4. Wave 1/72 Destroid re-issue

    1/72 MBR-04-Mk.VI Tomahawk 1/72 SDR-04-MkXII Phalanx are up for reserve on HS, they're also up on HLJ Here's hoping the ADR-04-Mk.X Defender also gets a repop...
  5. Wave 1/72 VF-4 lightning

    also the VE-11
  6. Wave 1/72 VF-4 lightning

    Best answer. You win! That art of the flight-gear shuts me right up. Either option, though I do prefer the, presumably, 2019 'in-service' one.

    just paid for mine as well. I haven't seen a stand mentioned. guess we'll find out soon, eh?
  10. Wave 1/72 VF-4 lightning

    I see where you're at WM... I think the general look issue could be much improved by lengthening the neck behind the canards by a mm or 2... that seems the biggest proportion issue to my eye. I have 5 on pre-order so I have a spare to try it... but I'm reticent to cut up even a 'close' VF-4... anyone have any suggestions to go about a neck job? I should also have a resin one around here somewhere... *scrooge Mcduck dive into kitstash*... not sure where it's at... I'll definitely be comparing the two once the Waves arrive. if Hase ever kit the VF-4, I'll call these A models, and Hase's inevitably sleeker interpretation Gs or something.
  11. New Macross TV Series in 2018

    I support your "enhanced" Macross-combat reeducation programme!
  12. Wave 1/72 VF-4 lightning

    My inner Trekkie is desperate for a better explanation than 2x MagLites... but you're probably correct given the other evidence in the show on a similar note: I've always wondered what the underbite on the FB2012 helmet is for? locking it into a wall rack for storage?
  13. Wave 1/72 VF-4 lightning

    yea... so from the front Gamlin's is pretty bad... maybe those are self-contained life-support systems in the helmet? I stand by my [admittedly assailable] assertion about the FB-2012 helmet though... It reminds me of a Polo Helmet: *almost DYR:L? colours too!* ...and I don't like it. Personal tastes...

    Winup Scale Models on Shapeways offers one in multiple scales: 1/8000, 1/10,000, and 1/20,000... I'm sorely tempted to get one...
  15. Oh good... the first thought that flashed through my mind was this
