    The Transformers Thread Next

    Well, I could've used MP-7 for a much closer color match, but I couldn't be bothered transforming it. Yeah, the one on the right. Well-spotted. Okay, now I'm showing off.

    Yoko Kanno?

    Sharon Apple's music makes Walküre sound old-fashioned.

    Pixar's Toy Story 4 (Summer 2019)

    Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers was widely regarded as the best of the Halloween sequels... which doesn't actually suggest it's any good, just less excretable than the others. Of course, conventional wisdom has now established the latest Halloween as the best of the sequels, which begs the question: Has any ELEVENTH movie of a franchise ever been any good?

    A painted Borough Superior is possible, but we'd be lucky to even see a mock-up prototype for the Bartley...
  5. Wait, why did they make Pikachu a talking stuffed animal? Oh, right. Because ted was a big hit. And Paddington. And Christopher Robin, even. It's what Hollywood does now.

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    In other words, their system automatically defaults to whatever price the item currently sells for on their site, and customer service has to manually adjust the pre-order price to what you were originally charged. Just wait 24 hours, and check to see whether the price you'll be charged is back to what it used to be.

    Yeah, that's a great deal. Last one! Here's the product page.

    [Netflix] She-Ra Princess of Power

    Man, this could've been an American Sailor Moon, but it's turned out to be Ben 10 in drag.

    Kitz Concept Robotech Toy Line

    Really? Looking at the battroid proportions, I was thinking just the opposite...

    I still like my 1/48 Collection. How about you?

    It's odd that Yamato never gave us a 1D, yet we got those non-canon color schemes... I doubt Bandai will ever give us these, though!

    Clampdown and Cordon... Diaclone cops.

    No Love for Southern Cross?

    Looks like a fixed-pose resin kit to me. It's not bad... ...but Captain America could do much better.

    Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    Sorry, my MPM-7's in pieces at the moment (gotta fix that half-assed weathering job HasTak did), but I think their vehicles modes scale very well together. Of course, measuring the wheelbase and confirming the dimensions with online stats is the only way to be sure.

    Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    It's been years since TakaraTomy last gave us a Diaclone homage in the Masterpiece line: Here's MP-42, Cordon. I can help you there, Noel... A Figma stand, actually. See the gap between the arms? It fits in there pretty securely. There's almost no metal in the VF-11, so the weight it supported easily.

    Max Factory 1/20(!) VF-1S/A Hikaru

    It's certainly not the worst we've seen...

    STAR WARS Merchandise Episode - 2

    I'd say even 1:144 is generous... but it's impossible to determine the actual scale these Death Star panels represent. I bought four sets myself.

    Gundam Figure Thread - Newtype GN-002

    Oh, I really don't like the white pinstripes.

    Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    Rainbow canopy on a removable cockpit module! Well, not at the prices they're fetching on the secondary market, eh? As much as we worship the YF-19 (and well we should, it's a work of art), the one thing that always disappointed me about Macross Plus is how little respect the VF-11 gets. Despite its auspicious debut -- in one of the finest action sequences ever animated, I might add -- it's never given any attention, treated as merely an outdated model ready to be replaced by the New Hotness. They might as well just used ol' VF-1s for the opening sequence instead.

    The Thunderbolt has always been my favorite of Yamato's valkyries. They never quite did the YF-19 justice, but they nailed the VF-11... at least, in fighter mode.

    Kikan Taizen 1/6000 - SDF-1 Macross (Movie Edition)

    Not if it's 1:6000, as labeled. The Megahouse is 1:5000. That's a significant difference, as any Star Trek collector can tell you.

    Kikan Taizen 1/6000 - SDF-1 Macross (Movie Edition)

    It would be impossible to transform, at that scale... although I suppose some fiber-optic lighting is feasible.
