    Gundam Plamodel Thread IV

    Just me, or is RG showing far more innovation than MG these days?

    Wave 1/72 VF-4 lightning

    Gah, M3 versions of the scheme. The Master Files versions look SO much better. (M3 had some amazing schemes, and some terrible schemes---which is odd considering they're really all the same scheme). Milia's VF-11B scheme from M3 is so much neater than her M7+ one. The VF-9 scheme is similar and also really neat. The VF-4's---were bland, had ORANGE accents, and were oddly pale/faded...

    The Third Party Transformers Thread

    I'd not gotten that impression from TFW, very interesting to read. I plan on waiting for a Cryotek recolor, hopefully they'll fix a few issues.

    Retro Gaming

    Twinsticks made some moves much easier, but the controller was actually better for some options. Really depended on which Virtuaroid you used. Still annoyed Kotobukiya never re-colored Fei-Yen Kn in RNA colors---it was molded to do so, they did a lot of extra parts-separation and multi-part molding that ONLY was needed for RNA colors---yet they only ever released DNA colors.

    MΔ - VF-9

    Does the gunpod actually have ground-clearance?

    Aircraft Super Thread Mk.VII

    I'll give them points for the TPS camo, that Jolly Rogers one has the best replication of the actual colors/pattern I've seen in a LONG time, including otherwise very-well-done model kits.

    Aircraft Super Thread Mk.VII

    Just from the teaser pic, that doesn't look like a B model, based on the antennas (lack of) under the glove and ahead of the vanes. Not a D either, for similar reasons. I'll have to look to see if any early-build B's looked like that, but that looks like a "final" scheme of VF-102. ::edit:: At least the fuselage nibs look right, a far more important part.

    Aircraft Super Thread Mk.VII

    I didn't think any airliner was certified/tested for 40kt crosswinds, 35's the highest I think I can recall hearing about.

    Bandai DX YF-30 Chronos

    There's several VERY neat schemes from the 30th Ann game, though I really wish Kawamori had simply "very slightly tweaked this design" to make the VF-31. Imagine something halfway between the YF-30, and the VF-31A. THAT would be an amazing valk. Just have the tailfins "slide up" in battroid mode, kind of fill in along the trailing edge of the wing, and it'd solve a lot of looks/fragility issues there.

    Arcadia 1/60 SV-51 Ivanov

    Yamato did Nora's PERFECTLY IMHO, I would hope for an exact copy of that. I keep fearing Arcadia will do something stupid like "plain yellow" for the stripes, and not the awesome metallic gold---that'd be a deal-killer. Or, they'll make it as pink as Mylene's MAXL... Arcadia has a very poor history with "choosing the right colors". YF-19, VF-0D, I even have issues with some of their VF-1's.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    They only used the -262 mold once, so I wouldn’t be surprised if they don’t even make Chuck’s, much less more -31A’s...

    Bandai's TN2018 26th to 28th Oct - Macross Poll

    FB2012 VF-4 in any form is welcome, but I worry that an HMR version would take parts-swapping to a whole new level. Like basically the entire top half of battroid swapping-out, and only the legs being used in both modes...

    Star Citizen

    Like, 3 years later and they're just now revealing Admiral Scully? (I remember watching the video-interview showing her mo-capping it long ago) (personally, I find it kinda boring when they mo-cap and record an actor "just to look exactly like themselves in the game"----was really hoping her character model would look very different, just for the novelty etc)

    Venom - The Movie

    I don't remember that sequence THAT well, if they were that inconsistent with what happens in that situation with two occurences just a minute or two apart...

    Venom - The Movie

    Saw it Tuesday. Generally agree with mikesz. It’s not awful, it’s kinda campy fun. If you like Venom, go see it. A sequel with a whole lot more Eddie-Venom action could be pretty good thing. Kajnrig——they made it clear that it’s a certain (high) frequency range—-jet engine whine, speaker feedback etc. “ending scene” noise is a much much lower pitch. Finally——my fave scene actually has Eddie and Anne. More with her, please.

    Ace Combat 7

    An official English version of “A Blue Dove for the Princess” would be a much better book, ESPECIALLY if the HD remaster is AC5. http://acecombat.wikia.com/wiki/A_Blue_Dove_for_the_Princess Chapter 7 - Old Tree It was when the dove finally made its way to the rocky mountain that an old tree began to murmur to itself. "An ominous wind is blowing. It is about to reveal itself, I suppose. It doesn't seem I can make it through alive this time around. Demon of Razgriz... Hmm? A hero, this time?" "What is it?" the dove asked casually. "When history witnesses a great change, Razgriz reveals itself. First as a dark demon." The old tree began to tell the same story that the dove heard at the castle. "As a demon, it uses its power to rain death upon the land, and then it dies. However, after a period of slumber, Razgriz returns. This time, as a great hero."

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    They shouldn't tilt up at all, but that's another thing...

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    That's all I really need, honestly. Just done well/lineart-accurate, and not like the Yamato 1/48. Moving flaps are a negative, because they're totally inaccurate. A VF-1 has double-slotted Fowler flaps--they don't pivot up/down, they move BACK. Ever watched an airliner's flaps slide backwards and split apart? That's exactly how the VF-1's work. Not many fighter jets have flaps like that, but the VF-1 does.

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    Same here—-they are fighter jets, that also can turn into robots. Not the other way ‘round. I believe Kawamori also starts in fighter mode, then later figures out a battroid for them.

    BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    At first I thought "wow, he got every reissue"----but then I saw the Horrorcons, and was like "OMG, those can't be reissues..."

    Aircraft Super Thread Mk.VII

    So is everybody BUT the US getting the better engines at this point?
  23. You don't ever see much Veffidas cosplay... Was she Mikumo in the previous pic?

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    ::watches opening again:: Dang it, it is horizontal there. ::animation error, cough:: Ironically, right after it's put down to launch (its designed purpose)---the very next camera-shift, as it actually launches--it's up again! (fully up). Obviously the launch-bar is really just there as a decoy to hide the secret, that the launch is actually done using protoculture...

    What's next for Bandai? (Wish List)

    OVA-accurate-markings YF-19 would be nice...
