  1. No that was Herr Fiend: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herr_Fiend Which was a Porche. The Classics Rodimus was very close to the "Dome": http://www.tfu.info/2006/Autobot/ClassicsRodimus/rodimus.htm
  2. What a shame. I thought "Paranoia Agent" was unusually brilliant and a fine counterpoint to FLCL. Satoshi Kon, may you find the joys in the hereafter that evaded you in the world of the living.
  3. I too got 'Peg' on friday and am very pleased with the design. Blurr is going to so 'rock' with this mold.
  4. Tamashii Web has posted a ton of new images here: http://tamashii.jp/t_item/t_item.php?eid=00027 There is quite a bit of technical design images. I am most impressed with the nose turret and the deployable stabilizer for "gerwalk". Just figured I'd share.
  5. And this review is for "WARBOT: Defender (Aka: Classics Springer) The review is regarding this fellah right here: http://www.tfsource.com/products/view/product_id/984/ I got mine from the link above and he is on my desk as I type this. Fan Productions kind of blew me away with their "City Commander/Classics: Ultra Magnus" trailer a while back but this is the first standalone figure and so far in my opinion their best product to date. Packaging: It is rare that I am surprised at how well an item is packaged. This is one of those rare occasions. The box is in a clear plastic
  6. Here is my review on Dark Shyfire: This review is about this figure: http://www.tfsource.com/products/view/product_id/895/ Packaging: It is a B/W recolor of the Henkei Jetfire box for the most part with the appropriate images of the figure on it. Nothing to brag about but it looks decent. Design: >Robot Mode: This is the fourth time I have bought this /mold, and frankly there are no surprises. Which is good /because it is an awesome mould through and through. /The new paint scheme is very nice and sinister looking. /With some purple autobot symbols he would make an
  7. I am stoked about this conversion kit to change the new mg Zeta into a Zeta II (1/100): http://www.hobbyfan.com/product_info.php?products_id=8249 I like how it integrates the original kit including it's mega cannon into the Zeta II's Methuss + Zeta C1+ styling.
  8. This one didn't catch my eye till it was too late: http://www.kotobukiya.co.jp/item/page/pk_a...h_c/index.shtml I'll willing to pay $80+ for it (along with S&H). PM me if you can get your hands on one.
  9. The problem I've always had with this criticizm is that the VF-1 is/was not ever made to look like an actual jet. It's an homage to the era of design the F-14/F-15 were part of. The Chunky Munky and thereby Jetfire look damned good because the design is both simple (with swingbars) and yet elegant. I applaud His Froatiness on his robot skills, but The old Valk is pretty unique critter in and of itself.
  10. Those images have me thinking my VF-22 should be be piloted by LEGION... (It was the mask/face in hand that had me thinking of the image below.)
  11. Amen! I have had dreams of the old 1/32 kit project from back in the day. Dry dreams mind you...
  12. I recently preordered a VF-27 kit at BBTS and am looking forward to it in Nov/Dec when they send it out to me. I wonder just how sticker happy that kit will be. HFH knows the others were fairly decal happy designs.
  13. Has any noticed just how much anime magic the VB6 has between modes in the old artbook/game it came from? The "Design Differences" are caused pretty much due to nothing on it can magically shrink to be smaller in the mode it isn't prominent. the nose and wings are distorted for flight mode, the feet and cannons for gerwalk, and the head, arms, and legs are emphasised in battroid. The "Koenig Monster" has some of the heaviest anime magic in the Macross continuity. This is why when a company tackles the design, I applaud their efforts and prepare myself for the "shortcomings of
  14. Except for G1 prime wasn't truck accurate either in the places you mentioned. The grill and headlights lined up better though that's for certain.
  15. IMNSHO Michael Bay and this guy: Ehren Kruger are the folks to blame for the shortcomings of the second film. Bay is remarkably incompetent at paying attention to detail or script/plot flow. Kruger has bit of a rep of royally screwing up/rewriting scripts that other people wrote. These two together did a marvelous job of taking Tf2 (which is chock full of eye candy) and producing slick product but if one actually pay attention to anything other than explosions or Fox's assets holds together worse that Jetfire's rusty carcass. After seeing Star Trek there no way in hell I belie
