    The Medicom - Mafex - RAH Thread

    The Batcave diorama is mostly repurposed parts from the TMNT "Secret Sewer Lair" playset, with some Ubiquitous extensions and other miscellaneous accessories... oh, and a repainted DST Alfred.

    MOSPEADA

    No, it's not really an issue. The arms compress properly; they just don't hold their positions very securely. Since the Zeta came with little Dark Mospeada ride armor, will the Dark Legioss come with little Bartley ride armor?

    BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    That's weird. Mine says it's shipping tomorrow.

    Whats next for Arcadia?

    That doesn't seem to be the case with Star Wars merchandise... Revoltech Yamaguchi, S.H.Figuarts, MAFEX, and Hasbro have all released competing six-inch Star Wars figures.

    MOSPEADA

    Just preordered mine from Amazon.jp.
  6. I think the "social justice" politics extend beyond merely casting... That sort of social criticism is a defining characteristic of the SJW movement, isn't it?
  7. Yeah, that looks way off-scale. I bet the designers at TakaraTomy hate you as much as they hate Michael Bay.

    Thanks, Noel. I'm still trying to find the optimum lighting conditions.

    Kitz Concept Robotech Toy Line

    You won't be getting your Minmei until November, then...?

    MOSPEADA

    It sounds absurd, and completely unjustifiable to me.

    Kitz Concept Robotech Toy Line

    Actually, it's ridiculously bad news. If they try to market 60cm Zentraedi figures, the line will implode long before they get around to releasing the main human cast. I'd rather not see them bankrupt the company, now that they've finally starting making a product worth buying...
  12. Yes, but she has gravitas, and that's something the MCU was sorely lacking before Thanos.

    The butt guns? You're kidding. Edit: OMG, you weren't kidding! My MAFEX Dark Knight is beginning to look right at home.

    BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    Ah, but that's not a misprint or a gaffe, it's merely a stylistic choice. To us, "shin" and "sin" are two different sounds, but there's no difference in Japanese. You could spell it "sheen," or "sin," or "seen," or "shin," and it would sound exactly the same. Students are still taught the standardized Nihon-shiki system in public school, which uses "sya, si, syu, syo," rather than "sha, shi, shu, sho." It's like saying "color" is spelled wrong because it's missing the "u"... "Colour" is also acceptable, of course, but it's much less commonly used.

    The Predator (2018)

    I tend to think of AVP as a Predator film (a brightly lit action film, that allows Yautja and human characters to interact), whereas AVP:R is an Alien film (an underlit horror movie, that further expands on alien physiology). As a bigger fan of space opera than action films, I prefer the Alien series... thus I think AVP:R is the better film. I'm hoping The Predator is, at the very least, a distinct improvement over AVP... That's not much to ask for, is it?

    Riobots by Sentinel

    Thanks. My camera died, so I did the best I could with my cell phone.

    Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    Sentinel has released their latest Riobot, The Iron Giant. It's definitive.

    Riobots by Sentinel

    Ideal weight, incredible balance, fantastic articulation... and very photogenic. Take that, Bandai!

    The Predator (2018)

    After thirty years, three disappointing sequels and two hated crossovers, I'm beginning to wonder if "a good Predator movie" is even possible...

    Avengers 4

    Looks like Banner worked out his Hulk issues.
  21. Are we still confused about this? There's no mold re-use here; the "Nano Weapon Set" is just that, a set of option parts for use with the Mk. 50 (sold separately). Note the disclaimer at the top of each pic.
