  1. Ah, "Flightpose"! Thanks - I had completely forgotten the name of that style stand. (I only have one - under my UniFive Godphoenix.) Ordered one! The stand that comes with the bird seems only made for fighter mode display & display of the Squires. While Battroid mode displays fairly stable with the SAP, I kind of wanted an in-flight Battroid pose, since the VF-2SS only deployed with SAP in space, as I understand it.
  2. I got the Nexx from HLJ's holiday sale. It was great to finally get to own one of these. One of my favorite Valkyrie designs! Unfortunately, the head was poorly assembled with gaps between some of the parts, and the right bicep (an extremely delicate, complicated assembly) was very poorly assembled and partially glued frozen at the lower swivel. A couple of hours on my workbench and they were fine. I also dealt with the many, many nub marks & sprue gate debris. But I do a lot of toy repair, with skills and tools that made it much less of a challenge, so it was worth it considering ho
  3. I got this interesting Macross purchase last month. It's a pile of 1980s Macross, Dougram and Orguss (!) kit buildups that were used in BATTLETECHNOLOGY magazine photography. I've gotten most of them reassembled, and roughly half identified as used in the magazine:
  4. I have an unused Arii VF-1 Battroid decal sheet in my scrap bin if you want it, thereal9thdoctor, along with some other odd extras. Just message me and I'll see what I can do for you.
  5. Totally amazing. I'm really looking forward to those photos. Wow. Congratulations!
  6. I've been slowly working my way through mine. They're enjoyable little builds if you've got the skills Ghadrak mentioned. And they look absolutely brilliant when built & painted with shading. But they're incredibly time-consuming, and you really have to carefully plan an assembly-line approach if you want to have what you need to play the game - even if you don't paint them. And tiny isn't an exaggeration. I clipped & bagged together all the chin-guns for 28 Regults in prep for mass assembly, and as they're formed with a ball-joint at one end they looked disturbingly like a sampl
  7. I don't know of any website, but I've got several of those kits from the Revell Robotech series and the Takara editions, and I'd be happy to scan & e-mail you instructions.
  8. Just look at eBay and see what it's sold for recently. Unless it's a Wave plastic kit. Then check to see if it's still in production and what the SRP is. Pretty easy to value these things with some basic research.
  9. I bought male & female sets a couple summers ago. It took a while to get them, but they were worth the wait. (Didn't get the waterslide decals that were supposed to be included, but it wasn't a big deal.)
  10. Offered this year at WF, by "Hiro Dan Astro Model" 宮武一貴神信奉団 His website's entry on the kits he offered this year, which included this one: http://astro-mo1.way-nifty.com/blog/2015/02/post-e4ef.html Look about halfway down this blog's 2015 coverage, for a booth shot of the kit: http://tomplus.exblog.jp/24114094/ ... It appears that it was also available alongside - or sold with - the Standard Battleship, and the auction text makes some sort of note about that, and it not being available. He's noted in the WF 2012 coverage here at MW, including the 2012 version of the kit: http://www.mac
  11. Small bump, still hoping for some junk!
  12. Since the dub was presumably done by Toho's regular international dub shop (the folks you hear on all the authorized English-language Godzilla DVDs), as the obligatory part of Toho's international marketing... that would make it the Official, Authorized English-language release of DRYL! As I understand it - Toho distributed the dub on Laserdisc in Japan, I believe for screening on commercial business flights, which also found its way into collectors hands. That would be the version seen letterboxed and subtitled in Japanese which was all the rage back in the mid-to-late 1980s VHS duplicati
