    Hopefully they get the remastered-version of the TV-series, as they had noticably better colors and stuff than my old CPM ammo-box dvds. Hope they also got the OVAs. At least the LRS, ROA, and SH titles.

    hmmm. only have bandai's rinky-dink stand for posing it, but how about these?
  6. Bandai DX VF-31

    finally got Mirage's Supers yesterday, so quickie-piccy...

    PF would've work for me better if they'd placed all the events before RoA. As well as cut down on the rather gratuitous final assault. They could've gotten rid of the kid, too, as that was a stupid idea to even include in. The RoA twist was wicked, but completely unnecessary. I think they realized that it was really a stupid idea so they just referred to Chirico as in SH.

    From your list , I think you like more showy and more fantastical shows with seemingly no regards to continuity/canon and stuff. That's fine. Everybody's got their own preferences and stuff. With that, you might actually like Shining Heresy since you prolly won't care about or even notice the underlying history it directly built on from Votoms-TV. I think it has enough stuff to keep you entertained despite that, and it is rather as luscious as any 90's era ova like Plus or GitS. Alone Again and Phantom arc, as well as the non-mainline Case Irvine might be up your alley as well. The character-designs and animation are very modern and stuff in those. As for PF , it actually has good solid character-designs. That's prolly one of its few strengths to me. Much better than the flat character designs on Mellowlink, imo. The CG animation on PF clears up by ep-3 or so, as BV soon realized nobody literally can see anything on the first two episodes, so they pretty much brighten it all up throughout the run. If you prefer to watch pretty old-school stuff with VOTOMS, then you might try Roots of Ambition OVA. It was the prettiest hand-drawn cel-animated of the Votoms franchise. The Last Red Shoulder is fine in that regards, too, and LRS is full-on canon with no twist like RoA.

    addendum: nah, think i'm spoiling it too much if i post the addendum...
  10. VOTOMS

    Haven't checked, but YT used to have Roots of Ambition, Last Red Shoulder, and Shining Heresy ovas. Not sure if they're still there, tho. fwiw, the proper continuity for mainline VOTOMS anime is as follows: -- Roots of Ambition (ova) -- Votoms TV (Uodoo/Kumen arc) (tv) -- Last Red Shoulder (ova) -- Votoms TV (Dead Space/Sunsa arcs) (tv) -- Big Battle (ova) (skippable) -- Votoms TV (Quent arc) (tv) -- Shining Heresy -- STOP! DON'T WATCH ANY MORE OTHERS UNLESS YOU JUST WANT SOME SOUL-LESS CG MECHA FANSERVICE and some bad/crappy/bizarro/wtf continuity and stuff. -- If that doesn't dissuade you, then... -- Pailsen Files (supposedly happened just right before ep-1 of VOTOMS-TV, but that was just stupid marketing. It messes and screws up both RoA, LRS and Votoms-TV canon) -- Alone Again (event after Shining Heresy). -- Phantom arc (events after Shining Heresy). Animation and character-design qualities vary due to different times/ages of productions. The latest doesn't necessarily means the best...

  12. Bandai DX VF-31

    SAL's been really slow since at least the start of 2018. I've been getting my SAL stuff at least a month on average now instead of last year's 2-week avg. Even SAL-R's like at least 3-4 weeks now on avg. At least if it went thru LA's ports instead of SF. It's been really aggravating.
  13. VOTOMS

    Well, I dunno. You described MellowLink as "amazing", where it's actually a pretty weak derivative of the main AT-V anime. It's even weaker than Pailsen Files anime, which was really the weakest of the main line. The first two episodes of PF were done in really "dark" cg animation, where any details of the mechs or the battles were completely lost due to Bandai Visual experimenting with their CG crap back in the day. You won't understand anything in Shining Heresy if you didn't go thru the main tv-anime, so it's a good thing you didn't even get to watch it. AT-V anime getting "better" around ep-50 is most likely an exaggeration and possibly mistaking Macross-7 or something instead of VOTOMS. That said, it would help to let us know what other shows you think is "amazing" or good in your view. If you didn't like ep1-12 of AT-V like you said, then there's something already wrong with you and you should feel bad about it ala Zoidberg. AT-VOTOMS anime is awesome and very consistent with the characters, the plot, and the mechs from ep1 thru all the various OVAs, in the honest of opinion of mine and others who have watched pretty much almost all classic mecha and even giant robot anime. --- add/edit: As for a durable toy for your kid, the only one to consider are the 35Max 1/35 toys from Maxfactory. Even if they'd fraked up and never corrected their misproportioned head on the Scopedog.
  14. Whats next for Arcadia?

    I saw that when it was still available. It was 25k-yen, but the item-condition was quite questionable. The Manda pictures showed some very distinct yellowing on both the valk and the armor. Surprised somebody actually bought it at all.
  15. VOTOMS

    Yeah. The 1/24 'Dogs size up nicely with the HMR. here's the Yammie 1/24 IRC TurboCustom with the HMR Hikkie-1A:
  16. VOTOMS

    RD scale is really just way too small height-wise against the various Votoms lines bigger than 1/48 and 1/60 from takara/bandai. HM-R line will be a bit more nicer height-wise, but only with either the 1/24 or the 1/35 Votoms line. A Bandai HM-R VOTOMS line at the 1/24ish height will be really ideal if they don't want to cannibalize their rather awesome 1/20 VOTOMS kits line. As such, the ones below were all previously posted here, but here they are again if you're that interested: 1/20 RSC with HMR Xabungle: https://i.imgur.com/idpvm5n.jpg 1/20 RSC with HMR Dougram: https://i.imgur.com/VBYBbsj.jpg 1/20 RSC with HMR Glaug: https://i.imgur.com/TgT5Ia0.jpg 1/35 35Max with HMR Defender: https://i.imgur.com/YMaT99c.jpg 1/24 with HMR Destroids: https://i.imgur.com/4BMxsBm.jpg

    Bummer. Hopefully, ThreeZero has improved the parts/materials on their upcoming Melkia. Your dealer and/or ThreeZero should've let you keep the other one as some really anime-accurate version...
  18. VOTOMS

    That reminds me. Did you ever get the part (s) from them to fix your regular?
