    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    I know the old Yamato 1/48's had those ugly chicken hands, but next to Bandai's they look almost skeletal.

    In that underbelly shot it appears that one antenna is angled out more than the other, so I think its safe to assume there is some degree of articulation and a bit of mis-transformation.

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    Looks like my wallet has to come out of hibernation for this one. Would have preferred it at 1/35 as previously teased, but oh well.
  4. Sentinel made Ken and Joe figures a few years ago that looked quite promising. Unfortunately they've been discontinued.

    Legos, anyone?

    Thought you guys might be interested in this tidbit of info: Voltron release date and price: August 1st $180 USD. Also looks to be a rather limited production run. liink: http://www.ign.com/articles/2018/06/28/lego-voltron-set-release-date-announced?abthid=5b34de1c44b91c0236000214

    Lego just released another Hulkbuster. Not sure if I like it though. I think I've seen some MOC's that look better https://shop.lego.com/en-CA/The-Hulkbuster-Ultron-Edition-76105?ef_id=WRCMRgAAALY7GVJ7%3A20180306140953%3As&s_kwcid=AL!790!3!254930835725!e!!g!!lego+hulkbuster

    Gundam Plamodel Thread IV

    That's a very similar product to Copic's airbrush system that also uses markers - I bought the starter set a few years ago . I was skepticle of it at first but was quite impressed the moment I used it. You don't get the level of detail you can get out of a traditional airbrush system, but having nothing to clean up is well worth the trade off. That said, I don't know how it good it would be on plastics though as I've only ever used mine on paper and canvas. http://copic.jp/en/product/abs/

    This was bound to happen...gray market VF's?

    I can't really even explain the feeling other than it just totally sucks to see your idea taken and not just having money made off it, but becoming a whole sub-segment of a market unto itself. A few years ago I made a very simple DJ related device that I thought I'd share on a DJ specific forum. I was quite surprised to see the enthusiasm for it and was even told by one of the members that I should consider taking down the pictures as "who knows what vultures may lie". I gave it a quick thought and promptly heeded his advise. However, it was in vain as within a year suspiciously similar products started popping up on the internet. Can I prove that my idea was stolen? No, but you can't convince me otherwise. I was naive at the time and only have myself to blame so I've since been much more selective with what I post about my inventions / ideas which really is a shame because it would be great to get feedback on them. So why not apply for a patent on them you may ask? 'Cause they're damn expensive to acquire and even more expensive to defend. There's an old quote I read somewhere that went "Your patent is only as good as your pockets are deep", and my pockets are unfortunately rather shallow lol . With all that said though, I'm not sure where I stand on the original matter; there are good arguments made for both sides. All I know is official Arcadia products are well out of my range and if the KO's are reasonably priced, I may have to jump on one. Perhaps if Harmony Gold / Big West were a little less iron-fisted with their IP's, we'd be getting original Macross related / inspired designs ala 3rd party TF's instead of straight up knock offs.

    Found this on the 'Tube the other day and considering the thread topic, thought I'd share.

    1/6 VF-1 Valkyrie cockpit speaker

    I don't get the speaker gimmick - it's totally badass without it.

    I love this shot sh9000. The whole scene just screams for a stop motion job!

    The size difference is comical. Almost looks like he's having "one of those talks" with his son.
