    I am only considering seeing this in theaters because Ewan McGregor can give a good performance with garbage to work with, so if it’s even a half-way decent script then it could be good.

    Anyone hear of SAL being slower lately? My 31C parts shipped out of Osaka the 31st, and nothing since. 90% of the time I have SAL in-hand in 10-14 days, but these aren’t even in the US yet.

    Just me, or does he have short stacks?

    I was listening to the Top Gun soundtrack in my car all week...
  5. 1/60 VF-5000 3D Printing

    I haven't checked into this thread for a while, but picked a good time to do so---it's done! (and in the best VF-5000 paint scheme, too)

    Ok, I’m embarrassed——I love the F-8, and its most distinctive feature is its unique variable incidence wing. I have no idea how it slipped my mind. My “jet enthusiast” credibility is shot.
  7. Top Gun 2 is comin

    Super Hornet is 10x a better choice than the F-35 for being the new star of the film.

    I’ve got all my NY emails for my 31C parts—-tracking seems to be right, but hasn’t left Japan yet.
  9. Macross figures

    The joints are compatible, so it takes 30 secs to swap arms and legs. Backpack though, would take a bit of work.

    For the last 2/3 of that last paragraph—-the term is “incidence”——how the wing is mounted to affect the “inherent angle of attack of leading edge vs fuselage centerline”. I know of no plane with variable incidence, but a helicopter’s collective is basically that.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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.
