  1. Legos, anyone?

    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
  2. 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/
  3. 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.
  5. 1/6 VF-1 Valkyrie cockpit speaker

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

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

  13. Thx for posting this up, Fifbeat! Don't know how I missed it when you originally posted it. I still want a Cyclone

    Thanks no3ljm, It wasn't my intention to turn this thread into a b-fest about pre-order madness. It was just a simple observation that I thought contributed to it. Once again, my apologies.
