  1. [CN] New ThunderCats - ThunderCats ROAR!

    Yeah, I'm ok with pretty much all of those designs, except the sword. It just doesn't seem like it'd work with the whole "normally a dagger, stretches out when the Eye is activated" thing very well. (this is I believe, the original/official model sheet for it) I NEVER noticed how the grip section "accordians out" before.
  2. Bandai DX VF-31

    Even though it's not "on-screen canon" I was really hoping/waiting for movie-style super parts for the V2 Grace VF-27. All they would have had to do is inject some grey plastic into the mold, and sell them in uncolored boxes as a Tamashii exclusive again. And as mentioned----ANY of the YF-30 repaints from the game. Which would have also lead to an awesome VF-27: (and another chance to sell some more super-parts)

    Where is the “02” 31A from?
  4. The Third Party Transformers Thread

    But to make it even more complicated, while the CHARACTER premiered in Car Robots, the MOLD was from Beast Wars. The original release was the 2nd mold for a non-show character--"Cybershark". (The first Cybershark toy was pretty early in the line, and small. Then he got a Transmetal version, much larger---the one we're talking about). Then years (and 2 shows) later, the mold was brought back, recolored, and put on Car Robots/RID as a new character---thus SkyByte that we all know and love.
  5. Bandai DX VF-31

    Just checked my N-Y account, seeing if there's any activity on the Mirage Super Pack front-----nope, utterly unchanged since Dec. Seems odd that some are shipping and some seem to be waiting until the end of the month. Mine is a solo pre-order, it's not waiting on anyting else.
  6. BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    Now, to see if they do the chest stripes... (and even if they do fix all the red/black areas, they're not likely to remove the ginormous fugly "NETFC" wing markings etc)

    Night? More like blink...
  8. BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    I can repaint the wing-stripes black if need be, but if they don’t correct the chest and ventral fin colors (they’re backwards) I think it’ll be a deal-killer—-I’m not going to try to match the red and repaint the whole thing just to make it “match how it’s always looked”. They’re a half-step away from a fan-scheme as it is.
  9. Bandai DX VF-31

    Is there any word yet on 31A Super parts? If I'd known back when what I know now, I'd probably have skipped Mirage's 31 for her 262, and have a 31A instead of Mirage's. But with no super parts "for sure" for the 31A AFAIK, I'd hate to only have a "bare" 31 and not a fully-decked-out one.

  11. The Transformers Thread Next

    Oh man, the posts I've made about everybody using deep trans-blue windshields on Hot Rod.... (which, due to budget only ever allowing one type of clear plastic, always leads to deep blue headlights...)

    If you want import 2D Saturn fighters, just ask me. (Probably better prices, too!)
  13. Well, thanks to azrael I now have a 970 on the way. Should tide me over until 1070/1080 becomes more affordable.
  14. So, time to upgrade my PC. But also the worst time EVER to be in the market for new graphics card because literally every card in North America has been bought up by bitcoin miners causing a massive supply/price change. It's insane. I should have bought a 1070 months ago. Now, I'm seriously looking at used 970's. (I have a 960, but no way can I afford to go up to a 1070 now or any time soon). Any chance anyone here is looking to upgrade from a 970/1060, and interested in selling their old card to me?
  15. Legos, anyone?

    Hmmn, cutaway jet engine on LEGO ideas: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/f18a11c6-f704-4827-b06a-fba84e5818df LEGO does seem to like "educational" stuff. And presumably the Rolls-Royce license is a lot easier to get than others. (plus, I recall RR recently having like an "official" model of an engine done for them, by LEGO themselves---massive, like 1/4 scale or something) ::edit:: OK, it wasn't recent, but it was huge: 1/2 scale
