  1. Soul of Chogokin - part II

    CDX review of Soul Of Chogokin GX-77 Gipsy Danger :
  2. Bandai DX VF-31

    VF-31A (w/FP) pics over at TD's thread: http://toysdaily.com/discuz/thread-272445-1-1.html samples:

    Still hoping Arcadia re-start their 1/12 VOTOMS line so I don't have to keep seeing an old Yammie parts-set being ludicrously scalped at 18k-yen and up...
  4. Soul of Chogokin - part II

    Finally! Charles (optimusprimesg) reviews SOC GX-77 Gipsy Danger: Waiting on CDX and RPA to do their's...
  5. 1/48+fp's, 1/60+fp's, 1/72, 1/2k, 1/3k,1/100 and now 1/144

    no idea why (or why now?), but Wotafa just reviewed the 1/60v2 VF-1J Yammie... https://youtu.be/X-ZEnAuNDWk guess he seems to luv it so much, he's got at least three in the review.... edit: posting it here since i can't find (nor even really want to revive) the ancient 1/60v2 Yammie VF-1J thread
  6. Bandai just officially announced HMR Xabungle: http://tamashii.jp/special/hi-metal_r/xabungle/ 16,200yen 7/17 sample pics:

    Nice stuff! Tho their Fyana seems to went amok with the donuts. Looks and performs alot better than the upcoming Bandai 1/60 gashapons or whatever that'll actually be. Good that some other companies are still developing stuff for the VOTOMS series. Hope GSC decides to do Nendoroid ATs and characters to compete with this line...
  8. Bandai DX VF-31

    Welp! I don't particularly like most (if not all) of Delta valks, but Mirage's colors is the only one I can sorta tolerate at least in fighter-mode... https://imgur.com/KdSr0su Being on sale at 18k-yen new/damaged-box was a nice, too.
  9. Soul of Chogokin - part II

    found my neca-7s so moar pictarz! https://imgur.com/j4U6IBf https://imgur.com/ueSrNew Yeah. Neca's 7" Gipsy "articulation" is really quite a bit embarrassing compared to the SOC.
  10. Gundam Figure Thread - Newtype GN-002

    Charles/OptimusprimeSG review of GFFMC Wing Zero [EW] :
  11. Soul of Chogokin - part II

    Using Coyote Tango for comparo instead, coz both my Ultimate Gipsy and Cherno Alpha 7"s were misplaced somewhere... https://imgur.com/C056uNG
  12. Soul of Chogokin - part II

    Ok. First impressions on the SOC GX-77... Good: -- It's heavy. -- It's damn metal! At least in places like chest, collar, inner joints, pelvis and inner frame, I think. Some panels (front thighs/shin) are metal. Rest are hard plastic. -- Waist/torso joints are tight right now out of the box. -- Thigh pistons move when you bend the knees. -- Wings (shoulder and back) movable. -- Shoulder Wings swing in and out. -- small back wings pegs into a ball joint connector. -- Great coloring. -- Great balance. -- Excellent shelf presence. Not quite so good: -- quite panel-y. lots of panels/paneling. -- limited neck movements/articulation. Look Up is ok. Look-down is limited. Can't really turn head to look sideways. (head is completely removable, tho). -- Elbow-Rocket is not spring-loaded. Just simple extensible elbow/arm feature. -- will really need to swing the shoulder-wings out when articulating the shoulders, as accidental breakage may occur coz of the bad stuff below. Bad: -- Shoulder-Wings have a tiny connector-joint. Looks delicate and easily breakable by accident. Be mindful of it! Other observations: -- Barely any clicky sounds. Knee, underarm, and pelvic joints kinda make some very soft pseudo-clicky sounds.

  18. MAZINGER Z INFINITY: in theatres January 2018

    Charles/OptimusPrimeSG is back (for now) with his review of the MB Mazinger Z:
  19. Hi-Metal R

    The FAST packs also have more greenish tint in the blu-ray version of the movie than the traditional light-gray of the toys. The old dvd-versions had more blue-ish tint on the FPs, fwiw.
  20. Bandai DX VF-31

    Hmm. Both need black trimmings...
  21. So, anybody got their Gipsy Avenger, yet? Yesterday was release-date in US. Amzn/Bluefin currently failing me. No movement and no release/shipping date. Box is supposed to be like: http://blog.livedoor.jp/tamashii_robot/21838775201818
